Lighten Up on Those Truck Breaks With This Feature

brakesThis marks the beginning of our third and final post regarding the new GMC trucks in Canada from your Thunder Bay GMC truck dealership, the GMC Canyon.  We have discussed the three things that make these new trucks dynamic as we know it.  They are the efficiency, power and cleanliness combination that is so unusual to find all in one new machine, as typically you are likely to lose one with the other.  Simply put, it is more likely the case that a new car or new truck will gain power over a previous model, but lose efficiency as a result of that added ability.  These GMC trucks in Thunder Bay ON break this pattern, effectively offering more power, more efficiency and few emissions, resulting in a cleaner, more efficient new truck that has more power and capability than ever before!

From the GMC Canada website we discover the following, “Additionally, a variable-geometry turbocharger helps optimize power and efficiency across the rpm band and a balance shaft contributes to smoothness.”  The new engine in this GMC truck lineup in Thunder Bay is matched with an automatic transmission, more specifically with a Hydra-Matic 6L50 six speed automatic.  This transmission is known for providing significant noise reduction along with a decrease in vibrations through the use of a unique centrifugal pendulum vibration absorber in the torque converter itself.

That isn’t all that the new GMC Trucks from Canada in Thunder Bay offer, either.  “Canyon diesel models also feature a diesel exhaust brake and an integrated trailer brake controller.”  The exhaust brake gives more control over the truck and can also help to drastically reduce the wear and tear on your truck’s brakes, by allowing the GMC Truck to slow down using engine compression instead of braking power, this kicks in and happens when the truck is heading downhill, according to the manufacturer’s description of these features.

The Technology in These New Buick Cars is Here to Stay

technologySome of the very best things about new cars really lie in all the added technology that can be found at your local new and used Buick Car Dealership of Thunder Bay in Ontario.  The new Buick Encore coming in 2016 recently debuted in Canada with the somewhat new stop/start technology, further contributing to reduced fuel consumption in stop-and-go driving.

This technology works to automatically shut down the engine when the vehicle comes to a stop under certain driving conditions, for example, at a stoplight. The engine automatically restarts when the driver takes his or her foot off the brake and is ready to resume driving once again.  “With more performance, technology and efficiency, the all-new Encore Sport Touring is a driving force behind Buick’s expansion and a catalyst for introducing a new generation of customers to the brand,” said Mike Speranzini, brand director, Buick in Canada. “This small crossover’s unique package of luxury features helps attract new customers to the brand.”

The 2016 Encore Sport Touring in the Buick Car family just went on sale this fall, so it has barely seen the light of day, but Buick Car Dealerships in Canada and the United States all expect great results in sales numbers for such a well rounded, fairly priced and fully capable new vehicle.  The space is second to none.  “All Encore models offer room for five and up to 48.4 cubic feet (1,371 liters) of storage space.”  The list of standard features and equipment, along with the benefits attached to each item will be covered in the 3rd and final post covering these new Buick Cars in Thunder Bay.  Call Dominion Motors to schedule your test drive today!
