GMC Stabilitrak Engineer | The People Behind GMC

Marcey Kewish, GMC Product Development Engineer on Chassis Control, is proud to have grow up in the Michigan Automotive Industry with a mechanic father who worked in a machine shop. After Marcey graduated from the University of Michigan she already knew she wanted to carry on the tradition and work in the automotive industry. Currently she is going back to school to get her masters and has to balance work life, personal life, and school life which exhibits the qualities of what it takes to be Professional Grade. This drive for achievement carries over in her work at GMC. She is proud to be responsible for the "button on the dashboard with the squiggly lines". This button, for the Stabilitrak system, she develops for full size heavy duty trucks and vans. At the GM Proving Grounds she attempts to replicate driving situations that require Stabilitrak, such as a truck and trailer going into a jackknife, similar to a guy who would be hauling a fifth wheel camper on vacation. Her focus on achieving great things contributes to GMC's dedication to build the world's best vehicles. For more information visit http://www.gmc.com.

Stabilitrak in the 2014 GMC Sierra Pickup Truck
Learn about the Stabilitrak electronic stability control system standard in every 2014 GMC Sierra truck. For more information, visit: http://spr.ly/2014Sierra Every all-new 2014 GMC Sierra comes standard with the Stabilitrak electronic stability control system. With the sure-footed handling of available four wheel drive, Sierra is engineered to help keep you confidently in control. During sudden maneuvers, a network of vehicle sensors respond to your steering and braking commands to help intelligently manage braking and throttle control. StabiliTrak sends brake pressure to individual wheels and automatically adjusts engine speed to help the vehicle track with steering commands and to help reduce the risk of a rollover. When driving conditions demand extra rear torque, Sierra's four wheel drive delivers what's needed to help keep you securely on the road. Additionally, Sierra's standard Trailer Sway Control offers confidence even while trailering under full load. These technologies work together to keep your vehicle and trailer on their intended path.

2012 GMC Sierra HD | Pickup Truck | Trailering & Sway Control Features
A review of the 2012 GMC Sierra HD pickup truck in regards to Trailering Control, Sway Control, Hill Start Assist, the integrated trailer brake controller, and smart Exhaust brake. The pickup is discussed by Richard Spina (Global Vehicle Director), John K. Dagg (EGM Truck Suspensions), and James A. Mikulec (Lead Development Engineer HD). Trailering Control on the Sierra HD is important when you need power to pull the trailer and braking capability to stop it while still maintaining control. Hill Start Assist is used when pulling a heavy load up a hill where the technology compensates by not releasing the break when moving foot to the accelerator. This prevents the pickup truck from rolling backward. The Integrated Trailer Brake Controller works with the Stabilitrak system to adjust the trailer brakes in relation to the truck brakes which is useful in wet and icy conditions. The Smart Exhaust Brake, a diesel only feature, acts as a traditional Exhaust brake to save wear and tear on the pickup truck's brakes but also integrates with the transmission controls so you don't have to slam on the brakes. For more information go to http://www.gmc.com/sierra-2500hd-pickup-truck.html. Sway control available only on SRW models.

If GMC built a F-150 Raptor Fighter, would it be this 2014 Sierra Custom Pickup?
( http://www.TFLtruck.com ) GM and GMC sell hundreds of thousands of new pickup trucks each year. The new Chevy Silverado and the GMC Sierra are some of America's most popular pickup models, but unlike Ford GM doesn't build a pure race truck. Of course where GM won't tread, other will dive in with both legs. Take for instance this new 2014 custom GMC pickup that was featured last year at SEMA.
