Tailgates and Cargoboxes

QualityWe want to continue placing the GMC Sierra of all GMC Trucks into the limelight today and will proceed to do so by investigating some of the top traits of these new GMC Trucks in Thunder Bay ON this year.  Below, we take a look at eight great traits of the 2019 GMC Sierra, as per when we have seen and read about on the interwebs.  These new Trucks in Ontario for sale in Thunder Bay have a very innovative split-folding tailgate.

The tailgate is an important access point for a truck. It’s the gateway to the cargo bed, and it can impact how easy or difficult it is for you to load and unload items, which is definitely one main reason people purchase and utilize trucks.  With the 2019 GMC Sierra, the capable designers over at GMC have reinvented the tailgate, giving it a versatile new spin to say the least. GMC calls this available feature a MultiPro Tailgate, and it can be configured to enhance loading and provide support in certain situations as per the individual owner of the new Thunder Bay GMC Truck in Canada. “This split-folding tailgate can serve as a temporary bed extender or a stand for your laptop. It can also function as a step that can make it easier for you to enter and exit the cargo bed.”

Another cool feature on a new GMC Sierra Truck in Thunder Bay is a dent-resistant carbon-fiber cargo box that goes along with these new trucks. That’s right, “The Sierra’s available carbon-fiber cargo box resists dents and scratches.”  A truck’s cargo box takes a lot of abuse, which makes sense given its function and it’s susceptible to dents and scratches because of this fact. It’s also frequently exposed to the elements because of its placement and this can eventually lead to corrosion.  GMC has a great solution that’s designed to make a cargo box better equipped to withstand wear and tear overall.  On behalf of your GMC Trucks in Thunder Bay, we learned that the GMC Sierra is available with a carbon-fiber cargo box that is built to provide superior durability.  We will learn more and report further in the next posts.

Tracking GMC Truck Progress

track recordLooking at all that happens in a GMC Truck in Thunder Bay portfolio, we know that it can be particularly difficult to handle yourself when you are a twin, such as the GMC Sierra.  The Sierra shares a platform with its corporate twin, the Chevrolet Silverado and according to all we read in our recent research, it is one of the top trucks for sale in Thunder Bay. It has positioned itself as a more premium alternative to the Chevy truck, but it’s been a difficult case to make when you consider how similar the two trucks have been, for some people, they struggle with leaning in one particular direction or the other, but the GMC Sierra is at the top of the list for most actually.

For 2019, the Sierra gets a redesign that gives it more individuality. Its new exterior design is bold and striking, and it does a lot to set this GMC truck apart from the Silverado. More importantly, the Sierra adds innovative content that isn’t available on rival trucks, and this should give it an edge in the current marketplace.  Worth mentioning on behalf of your Thunder Bay GMC Trucks is the fact that the GMC Sierra, last year, pulled out all the stops, moving 217,943 new trucks which gave it a strong enough performance and finish to put it into 17th place for best selling vehicle in the year of 2017.

There were still a few new trucks ahead, no doubt, but seriously, those are numbers to be reckoned with and we know that improvement can often times mean more than overall finish.  These new GMC Trucks in Thunder Bay ON, continue to amaze us with increased sales over the previous year each time we look at track records.  This latest overhaul better positions the GMC Sierra to realize its full sales potential, but that doesn’t mean it’s free of shortcomings.  It is worth mentioning though, that the GMC trucks in Thunder Bay On continue to perform well and sales are not an issue when it comes to these excellent new and used GMC Trucks in Canada.

Out With the Old In With the New Trucks

NewOn behalf of your Thunder Bay GMC Truck dealers in Canada, we are continuing our report on some of the newest GMC Trucks in the 2019 lineup and specifically discussing details surrounding the location of their assembly.  It is unknown at this point just when the production of the current model will end and the new GMC Trucks in Thunder Bay will begin.  Jerry Dias, president of Canada’s Unifor union, said he doesn’t know when production of the current model will end.

“They are being very careful about what they are announcing right now. But they have invested a fortune in Oshawa,” Dias said. “Right now the commitment is to the existing portfolio. More decisions will be made.”

The idea of building two different versions of the same nameplate isn’t new to the industry — and certainly not to General Motors, as we have covered much on this subject, also as it pertains to many of the models that reflect heavily upon one another, such as the GMC Sienna and the GMC Sierra.  These two new GMC trucks in Thunder Bay even sound like sisters.  This plant issue with out with the old and in with the new is not a first, as the automaker transitioned to the next-generation Equinox in early 2017, it still produced the outgoing model alongside the new version for a time. Unfinished Equinox vehicles were sent to Oshawa from GM Canada’s Ingersoll, Ont., plant. Eventually, Oshawa stopped receiving the overflow Equinox.  Other manufacturers of new trucks and cars have been known to do the same with old makes that overlap the new.  “At least one of GM’s competitors plans on doing the same thing in the red hot North American truck market. Fiat Chrysler will build the current version of the Ram light-duty pickup well into 2019, even after it launches a redesigned Ram 1500 in early 2018, Automotive News reported on Oct. 31.”
