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.

Some of the Latest On Buick Cars

factsIn our recent discussions regarding some of the newest Buick cars in Thunder Bay ON, we brushed on several points surrounding the Buick Envision.  We want to drive the Buick cars that matter to us before we actually go into much depth about the ratings and reviews, but sometimes that isn’t possible and so we rely upon what others have to say.  We didn’t get a chance to sample the 2.5-liter Envision, but the upgraded turbocharged four-cylinder and new nine-speed automatic are excellent.

The acceleration is described and felt as being brisk and capable of practically annihilating the tires if not for the all wheel drive in place for these awesome new Buick cars for sale in Thunder Bay.  Buick says the powertrain modifications drop almost a half-second from the 0-60-mph times. That said, we think it is much ado about nothing, given the excellence that these new Buick cars exude.

So, what is it that the average Buick Car buyer is looking for the most?  Do we know?  I will say that it is likely related to the interior of the car being as roomy as possible and also the fact that they definitely want a quiet and comfortable ride out of their Thunder Bay Buick Cars in Canada.  The newest Buick Envision definitely delivers all three of these.  A few other key points mentioned in an article online regarding these new Buick cars are as follows, “The isolation from the outside world is impressive. And the nine-speed helps the engine shuffle along at a calm 1,800 rpm at 70 mph…the Envision’s ride was supple. On the tightest roads, at moderate speeds, the Envision felt planted thanks to the 19-inch tires and that smart all-wheel-drive system.”  If anything constructive criticism related were to be added here, it would pertain to the definite benefit these cars could receive by the addition of a sports mode.  If pushed hard enough on certain terrain, these new cars could use one.  However, most Buick car drivers would never find the need.

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.
