It’s your Truck Month GMC and Chevy roundup
If you haven’t been keeping up with recent developments, forget what you think you know about trucks. Today’s Chevy and GMC trucks have more in common with luxury cars than with the “beater” Chev pickups of the past.
Not only that, they can tow and haul more—even as they’re more comfortable, responsive, versatile and high-tech.
Why a truck?
It doesn’t matter whether you’re going to be doing some spring landscaping, cleaning up the yard, hauling reno materials or getting ready to tow a camper—the power and toughness of a Chevy or GMC truck makes getting the job done easier.
Spacious beds and powerful towing capabilities make a truck the logical choice for pulling a boat to your favorite fishing spot, or packing up the family trailer for a weekend away.
Today’s trucks are powerful enough to handle thousands of kilos of weight—yet they’re more fuel efficient than ever before… And they offer so many accessories you can take any one of them “off the shelf” and truly make it yours.
Not just for “work,” either
Chevrolet and GMC trucks, as you’d expect, are fully capable taking on any job you give them. You might be surprised, though, to learn that our trucks can shift seamlessly from “powerhouse” to “luxury family vehicle” in the blink of an eye.
With options like extra doors for convenient and roomy entry and exit; a full back seat that offers plenty of space to stretch out; and a smooth ride that’s quiet enough to rival a Cadillac, your new truck can easily haul cargo by day and haul the family to dinner by night.
And today’s GMC and Chevy trucks also offer options that keep you connected while you’re out on the road. Whether that’s making and taking hands-free mobile calls, streaming your favourite MP3s from your iPhone, or parking and getting online with an integrated 4G Wi-Fi hotspot, you wouldn’t believe what these trucks can do.
2017 Chevy Silverado
Quality and capability are evident everywhere in the 2017 Chevy Silverado—just one of the reasons J. D. Power has awarded the Silverado the highest rank in initial quality for two years in a row.
Fueled by Chevrolet’s legendary EcoTec3 engine, the Silverado also puts a high priority on fuel efficiency—with built-in technology like direct injection, active fuel management and continuously variable valve timing.
A superior experience inside features an aerodynamic windshield, intuitive steering wheel controls, and available Chevrolet MyLink that made the Silverado the first in its class to make 4G LTE Wi-Fi available.
2017 GMC Sierra
The 2017 GMC Sierra offers a striking exterior appearance—with interior amenities to match.
Its distinctive design starts with a bold grille, angular wheel openings, advanced lighting and accent moldings. The bed options include convenient features such as handholds, remote locking tailgate, LED box lighting and more.
Inside, you’ll find a generously-sized center console, triple-sealed door to block noise, and a wealth of premium materials. Combine its technological capabilities with its towing power and the GMC Sierra proves that you can still be “tough” and “cutting-edge” at the same time.
2017 Chevy Colorado
Available in three broad options—a mid-size truck offering, an off-road model and several customizable special editions—the 2017 Chevy Colorado demonstrates a serious upgrade to what you typically think of when someone says “mid-size truck.”
An ingenious combination of technology—with available 4G LTE Wi-Fi, for example—and optional safety features like Lane Departure Warning, Collision Alert and more, the Colorado provides two available engine options: a 3.6L V6 or a DuraMax 2.8L Turbo Diesel.
2017 GMC Canyon
With the ability to trailer up to 3,500 kilos, the 2017 GMC Canyon—the world’s only premium midsize truck—combines brawn with a nimble maneuverability that helps you get the job right the first time.
Standard features are here—such as a power driver seat, projector-beam headlamps, and CornerStep rear bumper—that other trucks offer only as options. The Canyon also offers a built-in 4G hotspot, stain-resistant cloth seats and your choice of three powerful engines: 2.5L, 4-cylinder, 3.6L, V6 and a 2.8L I-4 Turbo Diesel.
Which will you test-drive during Truck Month?
Buying a truck is a lifestyle changer: get one and you’ll never work—or play—harder. And during Truck Month, there’s no better time to make one your own.
