winning edgeYour Buick Car Dealership has been focused in the previous few posts, on GMC Trucks and what makes some of them award winners, and others, sort of “meh”.  Well, for starters, we have decided, at your Buick Car Dealership in Thunder Bay, that an award winning GMC Truck, such as the 2015 and 2016 GMC Canyon, must be able to effectively compete across the board.  Meaning, they must have the exact correct combination of power, efficiency, manageability, comfort, control, technology and appearance.  That may not sound like much. But believe me, it’s a lot.

Enter one of Your Thunder Bay Buick Cars Dealership favorite GMC Trucks, the Sierra 1500 and a super feature that often times is all a truck needs to fall over the edge and into award territory, eAssist.  “Compared to a comparable Sierra 1500 with a 5.3L/eight-speed powertrain, the Sierra with eAssist offers an EPA-estimated 14.4 L/100 km city – a 1.5 L/100km improvement. The combined estimate improves 0.8 L/100km to 13.0 L/100km. The 5.3L eAssist V8 delivers the same performance, towing and payload as the current 5.3L V8 engine.”

This feature was recognized almost immediately by your GMC Truck Dealer in Canada and others in the industry as being a real winner, so they made sure it could be found in many different forms for many different truck buyers.  “The new eAssist powertrain is available in the Sierra SLT crew cab with the up-level Premium Plus package, a package that is also available with the standard 5.3L non- eAssist engine and the 6.2L V8 engine.”  Come to your Thunder Bay Buick Car Dealer and see this feature in action.
