The GMC accessories page shows a towing mirror parts for the 1500 light-duty trucks (look up 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 and go to the bottom of the parts list). Does it mean the GMC and Chevy half-ton truck will soon get this option?
The chrome cover you see in the screenshot above is simply an accessory to the mirror, not the entire mirror itself. Hence the accessory price of $100. (Thanks to TFLtruck viewer, Jason Jones, for letting us know about this accessory.)
When the new 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 and Chevy Silverado 1500 trucks launched – there was only one side mirror available. What about larger towing mirrors? The upcoming 2020 HD trucks from GM show us what a specialized towing mirror looks like. Will the half-ton trucks get the same mirror?
The new 2019/2020 trucks use the new design where the side mirror attaches lower on the door as a “post mirror”. The light duty trucks are using more of a horizontal style mirror, which the 2020 heavy duty trucks are showing large vertical style mirror with power extend and folding capability. The big towing mirrors also have built-in lights front and back, and a provision for a side camera below the mirror for a 360-degree view.
Take a look at this first towing video with the 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500.
