    My '12 Raptor does the same thing, stays on while in drive and shifting back into reverse, it's a nice feature.
  • GM sucks at build quality but they usually have those cool "why didn't I think of that" features. Edmunds recently did a post on the HUD in the Mazda 3 and how useful it is but GM first offered this technology in 1988. 26 years ago. Touchscreen controls for audio, climate and car functions in the 1986 Buick Riviera. Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems that displayed individual pressures in the 1997 Corvette. The most little known contribution GM made to automotive history was GM's Assembly Line Data Link. It was created in 1980 as way to make sure the computer worked on the assembly line. It was never intended to be used outside the factory and there was no special equipment to use the connection The only thing the dealer or customer could do was jump 2 pins in the connector with a small piece of metal and the check engine light would blink a code that would indicate a problem with the few systems it could monitor. Sound familiar. Years later this was adopted as On Board Diagnostics.

  • @jeepsrt, the coolest thing about the Raptor is that Ford thought about installing a camera on the front of the truck. It operates a low speeds for rock crawling.

    Thanks for that perspective, allthingshonda - people frequently forget that stuff the General pioneered.

    Yeah my 93 Caprice will blink out engine codes, ABS codes or even airbag codes by jumping different pins in the ALDL. I do all my data logging for engine tuning via that port. It was the wild west before OBD-II. Some manufacturers didn't even have the port inside the car.

    I can understand backing up to the trailer when its loaded but why can't you roll the trailer to the truck for the last foot or two? From what little I can see from the pic its a single axle boat trailer so at best it weights 800-1400 lbs which is easily moved by hand.

    So is Edmunds clearing out most people comments now or is this a website bug?

  • "The Silverado's guidance line overlay does not pivot as you crank the wheel." The guidance lines do move when the wheel turns on my 14 Sierra. Are you sure they do not turn on the Silverado?
