Besides the GMC Canyon trucks that have been in the spotlight for the past few blogs, I think we ought to look a little closer at the other GMC trucks of Thunder Bay, the ones in the full size category that workd day in and day out to compete with the likes of many really impressive other trucks on the market like the Ford F150. We talked before about what a fabulous job GMC is doing at tailoring their new trucks to the needs of their customers. This is very true in the full size category of GMC trucks as well.
“To start, the Sierra 1500, is available with a wide variety of engine, cab and bed options, and has the ability to tow trailers weighing up to 12,000 pounds when equipped with the 420-horsepower EcoTec3 6.2 liter V8 engine and the available Max Trailering package.” Although not all of us who love and own trucks need all of that towing power, some really do, and therefore the reason behind the package being available and not included in the price or original offerings for these GMC trucks in Thunder Bay ON.
Back to the fact that GMC will cater to many different customers and their variety of needs in a new truck, the towing needs described above are sufficient for many truck owners in Canada, but not all. To them, we say, “If your towing needs exceed that figure, GMC has you covered. The Sierra 2500HD, which is available with the powerful 6.6 liter Duramax Diesel engine and an Allison six-speed automatic transmission, can tow trailers weighing up to 17,900 pounds.” Then, there exists the GMC Sierra 3500HD with the ability to handle up to 23,000 pounds! Here’s what Edmunds says about these trucks, “If you’re towing heavy equipment, the Sierra 3500HD might be the better fit for you. With a fifth-wheel hitch installed in the bed, a Sierra 3500HD equipped with the Duramax/ Allison pairing will have the ability to trailer up to 23,000 pounds.” Stay tuned to the 2016 GMC Canyon with the Duramax offering as well coming sometime this fall to a truck dealership near you!
