I looked at my truck today. Only shows MPH. I am sure there is a setting I cannot find. I do know the truck came from Canada because the original owner has his name, address and phone number in the owners manual, plus the dealer told me.


If it was properly imported it will look the same to the average car person. You should be able to obtain the original Monroney sticker.

Maybe the aftermarket gauge face is only in imperial?

My 2015 GM sierra denali spedo goes from 0-140. You can select to have it say MPH below that or KPH below that. Did away with the combined metric/english spedo display.

Same for my 2016. I can switch it to US and the needle just moves differently is all. There is only one set of numbers on the speedo.

in the setting menu for the vehicle. In ours it is on the main display under setting IIRC. Where you customize all the vehicle settings.

Strange to see to see "US" being called "Imperial". Canada used Imperial ( as in British Empire) for gallons etc, while the USA uses US gallons.

EG, we used to call those oil drums, "45 gallon drums" but the same drum in the US is called a "55 gallon drum".

Now in Canada things are supposed to be metric, but they sell "gallon" cans of paint, eg, which are US gallons, not Imperial gallons.

Truck beds are said to be 8 foot or whatever in feet still.

We still buy "2 by 4s" and "4 by 8" panels. New babies are reported in the paper in pounds right after the first time they were reported in grams in 1975. Wow that must have hurt, people thought.

In 1975 a local hardware store had a deal on "metric yardsticks", which was a good indication how well metric was going to go over [emoticon]
