What Options Do You Want GM to Add?

Everyone has their own wish list, but let's make it easy for GM to see without searching through multiple threads. Who knows, maybe they'll take note? Of course in 99% of the cases, we'd have to pay for this, so keep that in mind when suggesting - as in "Yeah, I'd be willing to pay for that". Here's mine:

110v AC outlet in the cab.
Power sliding rear window with electric defroster.
Power sun roof.
Electric front/rear lockers outside the ZR2 line.
Cordless charging area large enough for Galaxy 8 phone.
Exhaust brake automatic engagement with Tow/Haul.
Power tailgate lock that works with the doors.
Parking assist front and rear.
Lane warning system (let's you know there's someone beside you when you turn on your turn signal).
Push button starting.
Electric folding mirrors.
Tire pressure monitor on the spare tire.

In my defense, should some of these already be available, they were not indicated as such when I was 'building' a ZR2 yesterday.

Anyone else?

The door pockets hold some keys and travel size hand sanitizer very well! I just can't get them out with one hand...

I think we had a similar thread to this a few weeks ago.

Power lock on tailgate - yes.
8-way power seats
If I have to have a sliding rear window, power for sure. Useless otherwise unless I plan to pay one of my grandkids to ride back there all of the time.
Lane warning system - really liked this on a GMC Acadia I had for a loaner. Not so great on wife's Nissan Rogue it seems.
All around camera function - still learning it on the Rogue, but man, it looks great and solves some of the parking assist questions you have.
Power folding mirrors.

I think the air dam should be an option on the Z71 package. It's just ridiculous for a vehicle to market itself as off-road oriented with that on as standard equipment.

Homelink (or something similar).

LED lights in 100% of the vehicle. Why anyone makes cars with incandescent bulbs in today's day and age is beyond me. (flame away!)

Agree. . . agree. . . and agree.

Homelink should be standard by now Don't care of the air dams either and I only have an LT. I have LED now in all interior lights, headlights, and backup lights. Going to license plate lights soon as I can get around to it.

The interior LED dome and map lights make a huge difference.

8 way leather seating on Z71.
Heated outside mirrors on Z71
Power rear window.
Sunroof.
And a Bose Ipod interface that actually fucking works. My 2010 Silverado functioned flawlessly, the 2016 Colorado functions never.
I feel as if I were mislead and ripped off by GM on this one, as many miles a year as I drive my music is important to me, and GM's own sales brochures boasted of Apple compatibility.
I doubt I would have bought the Colorado had I known GM was feeding me bullshit about the compatibility.

A 110v outlet in the bed would be good too.

Turn signal repeaters mounted in the mirrors.

Digital radios.

The heated wheel from the Canyon, a front locker and my truck would literally be the perfect truck. Most everything else mentioned I can do aftermarket or isn't something I'm interested in.
