The GMC brand has been around for more than 100 years, adapting and customizing vehicles to change with the times. In the beginning stages, the GMC Company built some of the earliest commercial trucks ever made. In 1909, the company became the General Motors Truck Company that later turned into GMC. Once GMC garnered the attention to start production, they have focused on building durable and safe trucks since 1916. Taking a stride to keep up with the times, GMC has been a brand that has adapted and changed to what consumer’s want and are looking for. GMC is also unique in that the GMC badge has never appeared on anything but trucks, SUVs and crossovers, displaying their commitment to vehicles great for families and great for a job site. GMC now offers an app to help you safely tow anything you need to and shows you how to do it right!

Available at the Apple ITunes Store, this free app contains tips and information relevant to the GMC brand and information on something most people just assume they know how to do, tow something. There are many questions to ask when beginning to think about towing, sometimes it requires more than just connecting the trailer and heading on your way.

When the app first opens, you can access specific information by selecting a specific model or by entering your trailering needs. Included in this app are Trailering 101, Hitches and Equipment, Pre-Trailering Checklist, How GMC trailering Technologies Work, Power and Performance information and Safe Trailering Techniques. Along with all of this helpful information, the app also contains anther section that has a glossary of commonly used terms and another section that focuses on special towing situations.

There is even a handy section of “How To” videos for the users who need a little more instruction.
The importance of proper towing procedures
While towing is one of the most common reasons people own a truck or SUV, it can also be one of the most dangerous. For the weekend warrior who is used to towing their boat, RV or camper, and have done so for years, chances are you have had at least one bad experience that has made you more cautious. Improperly hooking up a trailer can lead to the trailer breaking free at possibly highway speeds, damage to your vehicle, trailer, boat or other item you are towing and danger to other drivers on the road. Whether you are a pro or a novice, it is always good to refresh your towing knowledge to be sure that everyone stays safe and you can enjoy wherever you are going and whatever you are towing.
