Because Sometimes a Substitute is Better

What are people in the market for new cars buying most of these days?  Well, from a style perspective, it seems most are still primarily interested in crossovers and SUVS.  This has been the case for several years now and sales numbers haven’t reported much in the way of a change in this.  This realization, brings us to a question concerning brands that may not have an actual crossover or true SUV in their lineup.  What are they doing to compete with others?

Buick cars in Thunder Bay ON is who we take the time to report on behalf and we have gathered answers to the above question, only to recognize that all brands have a substitute if need be.  With Buick cars in Thunder Bay, the following is true, “Regal TourX is a crossover in the truest sense of the word,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president in charge of GMC and Buick, in a statement. He said it “has the drive dynamics of a car and the versatility of an SUV.”

Essentially a wagon version of the Buick Regal in Thunder Bay, and denoted as the TourX trim level, it arrives now at a time when most all buyers of new cars, Buick and otherwise, are craving crossovers for the most part.  Those families and individuals buying new cars either want crossovers, it seems, or they are looking at SUVs.  Sedan purchases have slowed down significantly compared to the other two styles.  Here is what reviews are saying about the Buick cars in the TourX category, “TourX is likely to play more on the softer side of the crossover world, competing against models like Audi A4 Allroad and BMW 3-Series Sport Wagon. It will allow GM to offer what it is calling a crossover – even though it is derived from a sedan. Banish the thought of referring to TourX as a station wagon.”

GMC Trucks Use Electric So Early On

first moveWe have perused down the aisle of GMC truck history and we want to diverge onto something slightly different in the same category of awesome GMC trucks for sale in Canada.  When it comes to GMC trucks in Thunder Bay, there is quite a lot that can be discussed and shared amongst those who love them.  The one new GMC truck that we have decided to focus on today, involves the Denali level truck for sale in Canada.  “The Denali super-premium sub-brand accounts for 29.2% of GMC sales this year, up from 19% in 2014. Denali models account for about 60% of Yukon and Yukon XL sales. GMC has sold more than a million Denalis since launching the brand in 1999. Virtually all GMC advertising features Denalis.”

Moving on with other GMC truck history, we know that GMC built battery-powered electric trucks that could haul from 1,000 pounds to 6 tons in 1912. I wonder if anyone actually realizes how early in history that GMC trucks were offering electric options such as the one described here?  GMC began using Detroit Diesel engines in 1931, that is another piece of historical trivia that we uncovered when researching the topic on behalf of your Thunder Bay GMC Truck Dealership in Canada.

Another bit of intriguing GMC truck history that we will finish up on is the fact that GMC built almost 584,000 military vehicles during WWII, including 430,000 6×6 2.5-ton Army trucks and 26,000 6×6 amphibious Ducks, some of which are still in use as tourist vehicles.  If you adore the GMC truck lineup as much as we do, and you enjoy a good lesson in history, then be sure to read the next post as we continue on with all that we have learned about GMC trucks in Thunder Bay.
