Tailgates and Cargoboxes

QualityWe want to continue placing the GMC Sierra of all GMC Trucks into the limelight today and will proceed to do so by investigating some of the top traits of these new GMC Trucks in Thunder Bay ON this year.  Below, we take a look at eight great traits of the 2019 GMC Sierra, as per when we have seen and read about on the interwebs.  These new Trucks in Ontario for sale in Thunder Bay have a very innovative split-folding tailgate.

The tailgate is an important access point for a truck. It’s the gateway to the cargo bed, and it can impact how easy or difficult it is for you to load and unload items, which is definitely one main reason people purchase and utilize trucks.  With the 2019 GMC Sierra, the capable designers over at GMC have reinvented the tailgate, giving it a versatile new spin to say the least. GMC calls this available feature a MultiPro Tailgate, and it can be configured to enhance loading and provide support in certain situations as per the individual owner of the new Thunder Bay GMC Truck in Canada. “This split-folding tailgate can serve as a temporary bed extender or a stand for your laptop. It can also function as a step that can make it easier for you to enter and exit the cargo bed.”

Another cool feature on a new GMC Sierra Truck in Thunder Bay is a dent-resistant carbon-fiber cargo box that goes along with these new trucks. That’s right, “The Sierra’s available carbon-fiber cargo box resists dents and scratches.”  A truck’s cargo box takes a lot of abuse, which makes sense given its function and it’s susceptible to dents and scratches because of this fact. It’s also frequently exposed to the elements because of its placement and this can eventually lead to corrosion.  GMC has a great solution that’s designed to make a cargo box better equipped to withstand wear and tear overall.  On behalf of your GMC Trucks in Thunder Bay, we learned that the GMC Sierra is available with a carbon-fiber cargo box that is built to provide superior durability.  We will learn more and report further in the next posts.

Tracking GMC Truck Progress

track recordLooking at all that happens in a GMC Truck in Thunder Bay portfolio, we know that it can be particularly difficult to handle yourself when you are a twin, such as the GMC Sierra.  The Sierra shares a platform with its corporate twin, the Chevrolet Silverado and according to all we read in our recent research, it is one of the top trucks for sale in Thunder Bay. It has positioned itself as a more premium alternative to the Chevy truck, but it’s been a difficult case to make when you consider how similar the two trucks have been, for some people, they struggle with leaning in one particular direction or the other, but the GMC Sierra is at the top of the list for most actually.

For 2019, the Sierra gets a redesign that gives it more individuality. Its new exterior design is bold and striking, and it does a lot to set this GMC truck apart from the Silverado. More importantly, the Sierra adds innovative content that isn’t available on rival trucks, and this should give it an edge in the current marketplace.  Worth mentioning on behalf of your Thunder Bay GMC Trucks is the fact that the GMC Sierra, last year, pulled out all the stops, moving 217,943 new trucks which gave it a strong enough performance and finish to put it into 17th place for best selling vehicle in the year of 2017.

There were still a few new trucks ahead, no doubt, but seriously, those are numbers to be reckoned with and we know that improvement can often times mean more than overall finish.  These new GMC Trucks in Thunder Bay ON, continue to amaze us with increased sales over the previous year each time we look at track records.  This latest overhaul better positions the GMC Sierra to realize its full sales potential, but that doesn’t mean it’s free of shortcomings.  It is worth mentioning though, that the GMC trucks in Thunder Bay On continue to perform well and sales are not an issue when it comes to these excellent new and used GMC Trucks in Canada.

GMC Truck Production

newWe searched for newsworthy information to pass along via your Thunder Bay GMC Trucks dealership in Canada and came across the news out of Ontario regarding the GMC Truck sales and upcoming production.  Also, if you are following any of this online, it may be important to read the following, “Editor’s note: GM is upgrading the consolidated line at its Oshawa assembly plant. An earlier version of this story referred to the incorrect line being upgraded.”

General Motors Canada will indeed assemble the GMC Sierra and Chevrolet Silverado at its Oshawa plant, but they won’t be the redesigned 2019 models and that is the key bit of new information we found in our recent research on behalf of your Thunder Bay GMC Truck Dealership in Ontario.  It is important to understand that the new trucks will be assembles there but that the redesigned, latest versions of these new GMC Trucks will not.

GM unveiled the sleeker, more aerodynamic 2019 Silverado on Saturday in Texas, according to our recent reading.  The new GMC Truck plant in question will, instead, finish assembling and paint outgoing 2018 models shipped to Oshawa from Fort Wayne, Ind., for the foreseeable future.   “Oshawa will be building current model (K2) pickups that helps us meet customer demand while we are in transition to next-generation (T1) pickups,” GM Canada spokeswoman Jennifer Wright wrote in an email to Automotive News Canada. “This strategy will help us meet customer demand as we transition our production and introduce our exciting new models into the market starting later in 2018.  The length of the program in Oshawa will be dependent on market demand.”  What we then read, on behalf of your Thunder Bay GMC Truck Dealership was that Mary Barra, GM CEO, stated to investors that she expects Oshawa to produce at least 60,000 new GMC Trucks per year.
