(Reuters) – Carmaker General Motors Co is the truck brand GMC said on Friday the 2020 Sierra large pickup trucks have an adaptive cruise control system, in a push to catch up with its rivals.
Adaptive cruise control system enables the trucks to automatically adjust the speed to maintain a certain distance behind the vehicle in front.
It features a high-mounted camera behind the rear view mirror and the Sierra to a full stop.
The battle for market share in the high-paying large pick-up truck market is intensifying, and already have a couple of General Motors’ rivals offer for this type of system.
The addition of the cruise control system is a sign that General Motors is in motion in order to fill gaps with rivals, particularly with the Fiat-Chrysler automobiles NV’s new Ram pickup truck, which is gaining market share this year.
