New Info From Under The Hood of a GMC Truck

newWhen it comes to under the hood dynamics of the new GMC truck lineup in Thunder Bay, we left that part off in the previous post.  This was intentional, as we can easily take up an entire article on the ins and outs of the GMC Trucks for sale in Thunder Bay ON simply looking under the hood.  One thing about new trucks, like the GMC Trucks for sale in Thunder Bay, is that they constantly juggle the need to balance efficiency with power.

GMC Trucks have coined the phrase “sufficiently efficient” for this very reason.  Offering a total of six different power train, GMC Trucks have all they need to get the job done and offer a multitude of choices to all who follow and purchase them.  We found the following pertinent information to share regarding the situation under the hoods of the new GMC Trucks in Canada, “Two new gasoline V-8 engines—a 5.3-liter unit and a 6.2-liter—promise improved efficiency by way of General Motors’ new Dynamic Fuel Management system, which can cut fuel flow to between one and seven cylinders as conditions permit.”

There is one that is new to the lineup as well.  “New to the lineup is a diesel-drinking turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six. Chevy has yet to reveal horsepower, torque, or fuel-economy predictions for any of the Silverado powertrains, but brand officials did note that both the 6.2-liter V-8 and the turbo-diesel will feature stop/start technology and mate to a 10-speed automatic transmission.”  For more information regarding the GMC Truck lineup in Thunder Bay, we encourage you to follow our post here for the latest information and questions answered in our research on behalf of your GMC Truck Dealer in Canada.

A Glimpse Into the New GMC Trucks in Canada

futureThe bigger the truck in the GMC lineup, the better.  “The 2019 Silverado 1500 isn’t just lighter than its predecessor, it’s also bigger, with a wheelbase that’s as much as 3.9 inches longer than the current truck’s. Overall length is up as well, with the new truck casting a shadow 1.6 inches longer than before.”  For those with a passion for new Thunder Bay GMC trucks, the bigger is exactly what they are after.

What you gain in the size is not only in the obvious stuff either.  The larger footprint in these new GMC trucks is said to improve rear-seat comfort in the four-door crew cab, as legroom grows from 40.9 inches to 43.8 inches. “Along with the additional stretch-out space, Chevy managed to squeeze in two large storage bins in the rear seatbacks, as well as storage space under the rear seat bottoms.”  There is no one anywhere out there who will deny that more storage space is a good thing.  Regardless of the cab configuration, every 2019 Chevy Silverado gets a larger bed that offers almost seven inches of extra floor width so you will see the gain in any and all situations.

When it comes to new features on these Thunder Bay GMC trucks, the following is headed your way in the lineup of new trucks, “An available power-operated tailgate is new and allows consumers to open and close the tailgate via the key fob or a cabin-mounted button.”  What about the happenings under the hood?  Well, you can certainly stay tuned here in our feed on GMC trucks for sale in Canada to find out more about the efficiency combined with proper power needed in a new truck since we plan to explore further under the hoods of the new GMC truck lineup in Thunder Bay ON.

The New Buick Envision

tire fillIn our discussions surrounding the new Buick Envision in Thunder Bay Canada, we talked about some of the changes coming our way in 2019 for this new Buick car.  There are other things we left uncovered, however, in the previous post, and we want to swing around full-circle and pick them back up today.  “All turbocharged Envisions receive GM’s smart active twin-clutch all-wheel-drive system which can send torque across the rear axle. This turbo powertrain is available as an option on the $41,695 Premium trim and standard on the $44,594 Premium II models. Other mechanical upgrades include a new brake booster which provides more brake fluid sooner for improved stopping power and a deactivation switch for the engine stop/start function.”

In terms of feature newness, we found several worth mentioning in our research on behalf of your Thunder Bay Buick Car Dealership in Ontario.  One of our favorite and coolest new features on these new Thunder Bay Buick cars is called Tire Fill Alert, which does away with the need for a tire pressure gauge when filling a low tire. Simply air-up and the Envision will alert you when the tire hits the correct pressure.  It is even better than a built in gauge that you have to watch while filling, making it almost impossible to be accurate.  This one simply tells you when to stop with an audible signal.

The modifications to the outside of the 2019 Envision are subtle, yet improvements to most who have seen them. The grille and front fascia have been redesigned to more closely align the new Buick Envision with other Buick cars and SUVs in the lineup at your Buick Car Dealership in Thunder Bay ON . The most recognizable changes are at the rear of the vehicle where Buick has fitted new taillights and sculpted fenders to the new lineup of Buick Envision. “It creates a look that’s a little more distinctive and sets the Envision apart from the sea of crossovers on the road. The lighting package is improved on all models with new high-intensity discharge (HID) units on 2.5-liter models and LEDs on turbos. Finally, every Envision receives a new wheel design.”  Stay tuned for details surrounding the interior updates and modification on these new Buick cars in Thunder Bay.
