Surprising GMC Truck Features

surpriseWe can and do like to look at new and used GMC trucks for sale at your Thunder Bay GMC truck Dealership in Ontario.  The one thing we find is that there are often several extra details we miss in our writing due to time and space constraints. For this reason, today, we will elaborate more fully on our recent write up surrounding the GMC Sierra Trucks coming in 2019 with the AT4 trim or level of ability.  We discussed the basics last post.  Here, we are excited to go into further depth.

The GMC Sierra Truck lineup in Canada with the AT4 designation comes standard with the Sierra’s new MultiPro Tailgate, which more or less redefines what a tailgate can do, according to reviews online. “With a fold-out portion inset into the regular tailgate, the tailgate can be used like a step or table, and can make cargo easier to access or to prevent it from slopping around. It’s easy to operate and even has lights in the steps.”  In terms of looks, you will see something totally different in this AT4 Sierra than other GMC Sierra Trucks in Thunder Bay ON.  “…with black chrome finish on the fog lamp bezels, fender surround and grille insert, body-color grille surround, door handles and bumper, red vertical recovery hooks and unique interior trim accents.”

Pop the hood next and we find that on these new GMC Trucks for sale in Thunder Bay, the standard engine is a 5.3-litre V8 that made 355 horsepower last year and can run on as little as one cylinder in the all new GMC Sierra AT4. Optional are a 6.2L V8 and a new, 3.0L inline-six turbodiesel, with output expected at 450 lb.-ft. of torque. The 6.2L V8 and 3.0L diesel will pair with a 10-speed automatic transmission; the 5.3 is expected to get an eight-speed. Last, but not least, the bed is worth focusing on indeed.  “A carbon-fibre bed — not a bed liner, but a bed made entirely of carbon fibre to reduce weight and provide excellent scratch and dent resistance — is also an option.”  Hop over to your new GMC Trucks Dealer in Thunder Bay for even more enticing details surrounding these new trucks in Canada.

New GMC AT4 Trucks in Thunder Bay

upcomingIn our most recent efforts to research and review many of the new GMC  Trucks in Thunder Bay ON, we have been focused on the future of the 2019 GMC Sierra, since we started getting wind of its awesome offererings, that is.  “Having already debuted the range-topping versions of the 2019 GMC Sierra pickup, General Motors pulled the wraps off another new Sierra, one that might actually see some mud on its tires.”

There was an off road version of these new GMC trucks in Thunder Bay that hit the public ahead of the 2018 New York Auto Show.  It was delineated the AT4 and it consumes most of what we plan to share here today.  Similar to the Chevrolet Trail Boss Silverado revealed late last year, now GMC has its own version of such a new truck. “The AT4 treatment, GM says, will apply to most other GMC models in the coming two years.”  So, for the reason above, it is good to know your stuff now before the AT4 becomes readily available and prevalent on the new truck market.

In the lineup of GMC Trucks in Thunder Bay ON, namely the Sierra for now, the AT4 gets some decent off-pavement cred to go with its factory two-inch lift. Standard equipment includes the following: 4WD, a locking rear differential, skid plates, Rancho shocks, 18-inch wheels and Goodyear DuraTrac off-road tires that should make the AT4 much more capable in the backwoods than the base truck. Also standard is a two-speed transfer case, hill descent control and a traction select system.  In the new GMC Sierra Truck lineup for sale in Thunder Bay, the AT4 is essentially the kind of premium truck plenty of buyers want but can’t usually get off the showroom floor, leaving them to go aftermarket once they decide to add some heft with a lift, suspension and tires. No word, of course, on what the upgrade will cost, but we hope that the affordability obstacle is lifted to some extent.  Stay tuned for more as these new GMC Trucks hit the road.

Building Two Different Versions in GMC Trucks

two versionsIn recent efforts to bring you late breaking news regarding the GMC Trucks for sale in Canada at your Thunder Bay GMC Truck Dealership, we follow some of what many different credible sources have to share online.  Jerry Dias, president of Canada’s Unifor union, said he doesn’t know when production of the current model will end and this is news we wanted to pass along on behalf of your Thunder Bay Dealership in Canada so that you can learn more about the Equinox upon which we settled our discussions in the previous post but never really took the time to wrap up.  We plan to do that here.

“They are being very careful about what they are announcing right now. But they have invested a fortune in Oshawa,” Dias said. “Right now the commitment is to the existing portfolio. More decisions will be made.”  We also know, according to our recent research on behalf of your Thunder Bay GMC Truck sales that the idea of building two different versions of the same nameplate isn’t new to the industry — and certainly not to General Motors.

Here is an actual example of Thunder Bay GMC Trucks doing the above mentioned, “As the automaker transitioned to the next-generation Equinox in early 2017, it still produced the outgoing model alongside the new version for a time. Unfinished Equinox vehicles were sent to Oshawa from GM Canada’s Ingersoll, Ont., plant. Eventually, Oshawa stopped receiving the overflow Equinox.”  When it comes to the latest information surrounding the Equinox, as well as other Buick cars and GMC Trucks for sale in Thunder Bay, we will push to stay on top of new information worth sharing, but for now the heads up of what is expected above is about all we could find to close out this subject.  Stay tuned to our website for more news on GMC Trucks sales in Thunder Bay and future worthwhile developments.
