Trim Level Progress in a GMC Truck

numbersDiving deeper into the GMC Trucks in the Canyon family, we find that that for the majority of this truck’s life, its standard four- and five-cylinder engines were lacking in the power department, which limited the truck’s ability to comfortably haul cargo or tow heavy loads. Build quality was average at best, and many items within the truck’s cabin felt flimsy and cheap, but we are so glad to report that this year, all of these issues have been addressed head-on, and the final product is amazing.

“The current GMC Canyon is a standout in its segment, and its robust power, pleasant driving dynamics and agreeable cabin should hit the sweet spot for many who are in the market for a midsize truck.”

The GMC Canyon trucks in Thunder Bay ON, gives buyers a choice of two body styles: extended cab or crew cab. Extended-cab models seat four, while crew-cab models seat five. Extended-cab Canyons haul loads with a box that measures 74 inches in length, while crew-cab models offer buyers the choice of a 74-inch or 61.7-inch box.  Consumers of this amazing new truck in Thunder Bay ON will have the choice of five different trim levels and they are: SL, base Canyon, SLE, SLT and Denali. SL models are sold solely with an extended cab for those of you with bigger families and come with a list of more basic features such as the following: 16-inch wheels, vinyl floor covering, a six-speaker sound system and a rearview camera.  The base GMC Canyon models are available with a crew or extended cab and add standard carpeting along with added options that fall outside of the basic Thunder Bay GMC Trucks mode and into the more advanced technology, such as OnStar telematics and remote keyless entry. There is more to gain on these new GMC Trucks in Thunder Bay ON when you continue up the trim level line.

What will you spend if you set your sites on a GMC Yukon in the GMC Trucks Thunder Bay lineup?  “The base Yukon SLE starts at $49,100, which is midrange among base prices in the class. The range-topping Denali trim starts at $66,200.”

The Chevy Tahoe has a lower starting price than the Yukon, but these two General Motors SUVs are practically twins and so they are worth comparing for fun. They happen to have the same engine options, features lists, and cargo capacities, so in a way they really are twins. The Yukon is slightly more upscale and offers a long-wheelbase model. The Chevrolet Suburban is the equivalent of the long-wheelbase Yukon XL. “There are many similarities, so your choice between these two may boil down to personal preference.”  Come by your Thunder Bay GMC trucks dealer and check out both of them and others today.


New or Used GMC Trucks?

old and new shoesLooking at our second category of discussion, we land upon the subject of GMC Trucks in Thunder Bay ON and we have decided to look closer at the GMC Yukon SUV.  It is actually one of the best SUVs on the market today. “Its engines never feel short on power, and it has a richer cabin than most rivals. While large SUVs aren’t exactly fuel sippers, the Yukon gets better gas mileage than many class rivals. However, some competitors have smoother rides and higher towing capacities than the Yukon, but really most who like the GMC Yukon are not looking for any more than exactly what these Thunder Bay GMC Trucks has to offer.

The Yukon is worth a definite look, especially if you want an upscale SUV that makes a good people hauler as these Thunder Bay GMC trucks do. You always have a choice in a new or used GMC Truck in Thunder Bay as well.  In order to help you decide upon these particular GMC trucks, we have outlined the changes from 2015 to now.  “The current generation of the GMC Yukon began with the 2015 model year, and there have been few major changes since then. The 2016 model added lane keep assist, while the 2017 added low-speed automatic braking. The 2018 Yukon gains a 10-speed transmission in the Denali trim.”  The crux of this decision much be made on the following premise:  You can potentially save thousands of dollars by shopping for a used car instead of a new one, though older models may not have as many features.

You can and should ask around about opinions that are had based on experience with any of the previous GMC Yukon years before deciding which of the GMC trucks in Thunder Bay ON best suits your needs.  Also, check US News reviews on GMC trucks from any and all model years.
