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.

New Info From Under The Hood of a GMC Truck

newWhen it comes to under the hood dynamics of the new GMC truck lineup in Thunder Bay, we left that part off in the previous post.  This was intentional, as we can easily take up an entire article on the ins and outs of the GMC Trucks for sale in Thunder Bay ON simply looking under the hood.  One thing about new trucks, like the GMC Trucks for sale in Thunder Bay, is that they constantly juggle the need to balance efficiency with power.

GMC Trucks have coined the phrase “sufficiently efficient” for this very reason.  Offering a total of six different power train, GMC Trucks have all they need to get the job done and offer a multitude of choices to all who follow and purchase them.  We found the following pertinent information to share regarding the situation under the hoods of the new GMC Trucks in Canada, “Two new gasoline V-8 engines—a 5.3-liter unit and a 6.2-liter—promise improved efficiency by way of General Motors’ new Dynamic Fuel Management system, which can cut fuel flow to between one and seven cylinders as conditions permit.”

There is one that is new to the lineup as well.  “New to the lineup is a diesel-drinking turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six. Chevy has yet to reveal horsepower, torque, or fuel-economy predictions for any of the Silverado powertrains, but brand officials did note that both the 6.2-liter V-8 and the turbo-diesel will feature stop/start technology and mate to a 10-speed automatic transmission.”  For more information regarding the GMC Truck lineup in Thunder Bay, we encourage you to follow our post here for the latest information and questions answered in our research on behalf of your GMC Truck Dealer in Canada.

A Glimpse Into the New GMC Trucks in Canada

futureThe bigger the truck in the GMC lineup, the better.  “The 2019 Silverado 1500 isn’t just lighter than its predecessor, it’s also bigger, with a wheelbase that’s as much as 3.9 inches longer than the current truck’s. Overall length is up as well, with the new truck casting a shadow 1.6 inches longer than before.”  For those with a passion for new Thunder Bay GMC trucks, the bigger is exactly what they are after.

What you gain in the size is not only in the obvious stuff either.  The larger footprint in these new GMC trucks is said to improve rear-seat comfort in the four-door crew cab, as legroom grows from 40.9 inches to 43.8 inches. “Along with the additional stretch-out space, Chevy managed to squeeze in two large storage bins in the rear seatbacks, as well as storage space under the rear seat bottoms.”  There is no one anywhere out there who will deny that more storage space is a good thing.  Regardless of the cab configuration, every 2019 Chevy Silverado gets a larger bed that offers almost seven inches of extra floor width so you will see the gain in any and all situations.

When it comes to new features on these Thunder Bay GMC trucks, the following is headed your way in the lineup of new trucks, “An available power-operated tailgate is new and allows consumers to open and close the tailgate via the key fob or a cabin-mounted button.”  What about the happenings under the hood?  Well, you can certainly stay tuned here in our feed on GMC trucks for sale in Canada to find out more about the efficiency combined with proper power needed in a new truck since we plan to explore further under the hoods of the new GMC truck lineup in Thunder Bay ON.
