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.

Changes in GMC Trucks

changeHow do changes impact the new and used GMC trucks of Thunder Bay ON?  Well, depending on the truck, the answer can vary, due in part to the fact that they change to a varying degree.  This year, for example, one of the most popular new GMC Trucks, the GMC Sierra 1500, has very little in the way of anticipated change.  It receives the smallest of changes for 2018, as a matter of fact, and so the effect is small.  However small, the changes do exist and so we will cover them here for you to ponder and use in your consideration of your next GMC Trucks purchase in Thunder Bay Ontario.

One change is an addition of a popular GMC Truck package, the eAssist package at your Truck Dealers in Thunder Bay.  “The eAssist package is now available nationwide after being sold exclusively in California since 2016. This system, which GM calls “mild hybrid,” uses a single electric motor and doesn’t operate as a typical hybrid, meaning it doesn’t power the truck on its own. The lineup adds two new exterior colors—Deep Mahogany Metallic and Red Quartz Tintcoat. Every model now has a backup camera—per a government mandate—and the tire-pressure-monitoring system now has an audible alert when you’re adding air, to indicate when the tire is inflated to the recommended level.”

In the small, yet slightly impactful change category comes things that were untouched as well, believe it or not, as this also bears weight on the new GMC Truck market and choices presented to new truck buyers in Thunder Bay at your local GMC Truck dealer in Thunder Bay Ontario.  Things were removed as well, though only one slight change as the base 1SA trim scraps the outdated 4.2-inch non-touchscreen display for a standard 7.0-inch IntelliLink touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, moving things along in the technological advancement categories.
