What in the World Are: Reverse Tilt Mirrors?
We were in the 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500 High Country filming some awesome features and while I was in there messing around… i mean… “customizing” the settings of the truck I stumbled across one I hadn’t experienced before. So, of course being the curious soul that I am, I dove right in! It said “Reverse Tilt Mirrors” and gave me a couple of options “Off”, “Both”, “Driver Only” and “Passenger Only”, so I shrugged and with my all-or-nothing hat on hit the “Both” button. My context clues helped me decide it was probably about time to put the vehicle in to what my dad referred to when teaching me to drive a stick “Racing!” but most people call “Reverse” and just see what happened. I was far from disappointed!
In layman’s terms “it helps you back up”. To dig a little deeper than that, it’s adjusts the mirrors to give you better curb visibility when backing up. Sometimes it’s not practical, like when you’re towing a trailer, so you can disable the feature (or if it’s just not your cup of tea). I found it pretty useful, though not as necessary on the High Country I was driving in the video as that one was equipped with a Back Up Camera. Although, that would be completely useless with a trailer attached whereas the Reverse Tilt Mirrors would still give a good idea of what is near your rear tires.
As always, if you would like more information or to take one of these out to test for yourself you are invited to contact our World Class Internet Department at (800) 680-0835. You can also reach them online by filling out this form and if you’d like to browse our Silverados before coming in you may do that also, though with our ever-increasing dealer group we are capable locating, ordering and otherwise finding any vehicle for you that might not already be on our lot within a timely manner.
