Provides pickups that are towing with stopping distance similar to a pickup not towing. With asterisks. Wayne Gerdes – CleanMPG – January 21, 2020 GM Trailer Braking Infographic A modified trailer was necessary to improve results to this level. Hopefully Trailer OEMs are listening? GM has developed an advanced trailer braking concept that has the potential to reduce stopping distances while towing. This is done using existing components, including GM’s segment-exclusive eBoost braking system. With eight available cameras and up to 15 different views when trailering, an industry-first trailer label that shows exactly what weight that specific truck can tow, and iN-Command from ASA Electronics compatibility available on the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra light-duty and heavy-duty models, makes the product one to be reckoned with. Utilizing the truck’s eBoost braking system, GM engineers integrated a trailer with a similar eBoost system and upgraded trailer hardware components including larger brake rotors, calipers and tires. With eBoost systems on both the truck and trailer and proper software to enable communication, the stopping distance of a truck and trailer improved by up to 20 percent from 60 mph to zero when compared to an identical truck and trailer using traditional electric trailer brakes – that’s about a 40-foot difference. This technology allowed the truck to command trailer braking like never before, using the existing seven-pin trailer wire connector and without the need for any extra connections. The advanced trailer braking also helps mitigate trailer sway by using stability control. While the upgraded trailer hardware is not available from OEMs today, it could be in short order. Let us hope the OEMs get the message for all of our sakes. Thanks GM!
