2020 1500 tow mirrors available

Recommended Posts

Asked at the dealership yesterday. Come as a pair for around $750. They said that officially they won’t work with 2019, but that is probably just the answer since they were never available on 2019.

 

If anyone braver than me wants to buy a set and do an install, that would be awesome. I’m 99% sure they’ll fit, I’m mainly worried about wiring and the power fold button all being there on my LT z71 with basic heated mirrors

I don't recall seeing the cameras on the tow mirrors.  I'll have to look for the pic of them

Standard features vary depending on trim level. For WT, RST, LT and LT Trail Boss models, the vertical trailering mirror function is tagged with RPO code DPO, while the mirrors for the LTZ and High Country get RPO code DQS. Compare and contrast the features of both below:

I was told by the dealer they would have cameras on them as the build sheet still had all of the surround view and the “trailer less view”. So I ordered the truck with the tow mirrors - if it doesn’t well I won’t be buying that truck. Should be getting mine in the next 2 weeks so I’ll let you know what I find out!

They do. Middle button below the direction adjust. Surprising the half ton examples don’t.

Cameras look to be mounted in the base of the mirror rather than on the mirror like the non-towing examples. Small bubble on each side of the base.

Theoretically there would be three different towing mirrors. Base, manual fold and extend, power fold, and power fold with cameras.

If you use the build a truck tool on the Chevy website for the 2020 models you can see the option to add tow mirrors to the 1500. The trail boss was $375, but you can't have the blind spot safety package with the tow mirrors. Unless you tow alot, it might be better to just get slip on CIPA tow mirrors when they come out

Yeah, looking now, it appears as though there are only two versions of this mirror in half tons: 

 

“Plain Jane” manual fold, no blind spot monitor on the lower trims.

 

And on LTZ, selecting the tow mirrors adds 6 grand worth of packages including the surround vision and blind spot monitoring. HC would also require essentially every option to get them. Basically all or nothing in the top trims.

 

Some people are gonna be pissed about that I bet. Me, I don’t care for the look of these things anyway.

I’ve looked at the pinouts, the plugs will be the same for the power fold tow mirrors as the standard power fold / power fold with camera mirrors. There is an additional plug for power extending. So it appears if you got the 2020 tow mirrors and your truck already has power fold, you’re good. If you don’t have power fold, all the other pinouts are the same so motor/ light functions should all work as well

I can’t justify adding tow mirrors to my 2019 unless they’re electric fold. If I can’t get electric fold without the cameras then it wont be worth it for me. I want proper tow mirrors. If I have to trade this in to get them, I’ll get a ram

Most likely, from what I see on the schematics and pinouts, you’d need a set of 2020 power fold tow mirrors, not the accessory mirrors (mucho $$), the power fold window switch and possibly a new door wiring harness for driver and passenger. All depends on what current options you have. If you have power fold now, it looks like they’ll be plug and play.
