latest newsAt your new and used GMC Truck Dealership in Thunder Bay, we like to do our best to keep you abreast all of the new information regarding the GMC Truck lineup.  Recently in the news regarding the green movement and the importance of environmentally friendly operations and development in the new truck world, we found the following information, “The 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD diesel pickup truck is getting a new piece of hardware to help its engine run more efficiently.”

There will now be versions of the GMC heavy-duty truck equipped with the 6.6-liter Duramax diesel V-8 offering a functional hood scoop, which has the purpose of feeding cooler air into the engine of these new GMC trucks in Thunder Bay.  Green car reports writes, “This addition—along with other modifications to the air-intake system—allows the diesel engine to operate more easily in extreme heat, cold, or wet weather, Chevy says.”

In order to attain combustion that is efficient in your new or used GMC trucks in Ontario, you must have air that is both cool as well as dry.  “The new intake system is designed to deliver air that is both cool and dry—two important qualities for efficient combustion.”  A whopping 60% of the air used by these Thunder Bay GMC Trucks will be drawn in by way of this hood scoop of which we are discussing.  This is able to create a cool temperature of air since it avoids most all heat from the engine compartment.  The delivery of this air into the GMC trucks is done at a high rate of speed also, described below, “The scoop also enables a ‘ram-air’ effect, allowing it to funnel greater quantities of air into the engine when the truck moves at speed.”
