• All-new 'smart' exhaust brake feature provides greater control on grades and reduced brake pad wear
• An array of control features, including trailer sway control, integrated trailer brake control, hill start assist, automatic grade braking, intelligent brake assist and larger brakes
• Purposeful technology, including available mobile WiFi, ÚSB connectivity, Bluetooth connectivity, XM Satellite Radio, OnStar 9.0 and navigation. (posted on conceptcarz.com)
