We recently set out to elaborate on the GMC Terrain in Thunder Bay ON and found that these SUVs are similar to a football in that aerodynamics play a key role throughout. The idea was captured from the GMC website in Canada, but was such a great way of illustrating some of the best new features in this lineup of new GMC Trucks in Thunder Bay, that we decided to mix it up a bit and include the same idea here for our GMC Truck customers in Canada. “What do a football and an SUV have in common? Both rely on exceptional aerodynamics to perform to their fullest, and the GMC Terrain and Wilson leather NFL game footballs are perfect examples. “
Those responsible for testing out these new GMC Terrain SUVs, were on top of their game, as engineers clocked more than 300 hours in the wind tunnel to refine every surface of the Terrain, from the front grille to the rear spoiler. Here is what they had to say about these new SUVS for sale at your Thunder Bay GMC Truck Dealer, “Reducing the aerodynamic drag of an SUV is always a challenge,” said GMC Aerodynamic Engineer Alicia Bidwell. “Our engineering team paid attention to even the smallest details to deliver the size and cargo space our customers want.”
Also worth pointing out and explaining further is the lifted nature of these new GMC Terrain SUVs and what was done to combat the negative effects of such a situation. “The Terrain’s lifted stance means that more air can flow under the vehicle and pressurize the chassis components, which increases aerodynamic drag. To reduce this drag and optimize aero performance, Terrain aerodynamicists used testing and simulation to craft features that effectively guide air to the back of the vehicle.” Attention to the finer points and details along the way is nothing new when it comes to GMC Truck design, so most of us are not surprised at all, still it is good to know that your GMC Trucks in Thunder Bay evolved out of so much care and craftsmanship.
