The second option is the Custom trim, which comes with all the features of the WT, but also with some added features for convenience and entertainment. A rear vision camera takes the guessing out of backing up, and the truck’s Advanced Trailering System includes Hitch Assist. Using your back up camera, Hitch Assist places digital visual guides and cues to make hitching up a breeze. Your Custom Silverado will automatically monitor your truck’s tire pressure, but the Advanced Trailering System can also monitor your trailer’s tire pressure, and you can access this easily through your truck’s Infotainment Center.
