US News Praises GMC Terrain For Its Camping Capabilities

2021 GMC Terrain | Memphis, TN

When you’re prepping for an adventure into the great outdoors, you need a vehicle that can handle all your gear and deliver the performance you need for challenging terrains. The 2021 GMC Terrain is one of the 16 Best Cars for Camping in 2021, according to U.S. News & World Report.

“If you’re headed for the beach instead of the woods, the 2021 GMC Terrain has a fold-flat front passenger seat that can accommodate long items, like a surfboard. If you need that space for people, passengers will find the cabin has plenty of room to get comfortable in both rows,” according to U.S. News & World Report writer Kristen Hall-Geisler.

Modern tech

Even though you’re escaping the real world to decompress, you’ll appreciate the modern connectivity tech in the 2021 Terrain to help you get to your destination and re-connect when your trip is over. Smartphone integration is simple and seamless with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™.

Advanced safety

No matter where you’re headed, you’ll feel more confident behind the wheel of the GMC Terrain thanks to the GMC Pro Safety suite of safety tech. Under proper conditions, Forward Collision Alert alerts you to potential threats in front of you so you can avoid or minimize an accident. Automatic Emergency Braking will automatically engage the brakes to bolster your stopping power, under proper conditions.

Exciting Changes to the 2022 GMC Acadia

2022 GMC Acadia | Memphis, TN

The 2022 GMC Acadia will get a lot of exciting updates for the new model year. Not only does it ditch the previous model year’s two-row option in favor of a three-row option with a six- or seven-seat layout. But you can also expect updates to engine options and trim levels, among other things.

The 2022 Acadia boasts a more powerful base engine. Instead of a 2.5-liter four-cylinder that outputs 193 horsepower, this model gets a turbocharged 2.0-liter I-4 that produces 228 horsepower, for more potency without sacrificing efficiency.

Thrill-seekers should choose the available 3.6-liter V6 engine with 310 horsepower and 271 lb-ft of torque. Delivering robust performance, this engine is available on the SLT trim and standard on the AT4 and the Denali.

For the 2022 model year, GMC has swapped out the base SL trim with the SLE trim. Both of these come standard with an 8-inch touch screen GMC Infotainment System and GMC Pro Safety Plus, a suite of safety technologies including Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Alert, and Intellibeam headlights.

The SLE and SLT are still followed by the AT4 off-roading trim and the luxury Denali trim. These didn’t get any major upgrades for the new model year — but who’s complaining when these two trims are satisfying just the way they are.

Stop by Sunrise Buick GMC at Wolfchase to explore our current selection of Acadia models, as we wait for the 2022 model to arrive here at our dealership later this year.

GMC Terrain Will Regain the Denali Trim

2021 GMC Terrain | Memphis, TN

In 2020, GMC announced that the 2021 GMC Terrain would not offer the Denali trim upon its initial release. Luckily, the Terrain will once again provide this high-end trim level for the rest of its 2021 models.

The 2021 Terrain Denali has a stylish design that includes 19-inch ultra-bright machined aluminum wheels with premium Gray painted accents. The model also stands out with a multi-dimensional grille, chrome side mirror caps, and chrome accents on the door handles. And, it makes for fun drives with its turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 170 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque.

Inside this spacious SUV, you’ll find French-stitched leather-appointed front seats and a heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel. The Terrain Denali’s 8-inch GMC Infotainment System comes with built-in Navigation as well as Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ capabilities.

To provide you with peace of mind on the road, the Terrain Denali has the GMC Pro Safety Plus suite of safety technologies. Features include Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, Rear Park Assist, and more. The SUV also offers High Definition Surround Vision to give a better view of the area surrounding you.

Sunrise Buick GMC at Wolfchase is excited for the return of the Terrain Denali. To find the right Terrain trim for your family, be sure to give us a call.

2022 GMC Sierra Denali to Feature Super Cruise

2020 GMC Sierra 1500 | Memphis, TN

Very few vehicles have had the honor of receiving GM’s new Super Cruise technology — an advanced feature that allows for true hands-free driving on over 200,000 miles of highway in North America. This past December, General Motors announced that the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali pickup truck would be the next to offer the innovative Super Cruise.*

The GMC Denali trim lineup is known for its high-end features and advanced technology, so this is a perfect addition. This near-autonomous driver-assist technology allows you to take your hands off the wheel, and your foot off the gas pedal, for a comfortable experience on compatible highways.

It builds on familiar driver-assist tools like adaptive cruise control, which it uses to handle braking and acceleration. The addition of cameras, sensors, LiDAR map data, and GPS makes it possible for the technology to take care of the steering, too.

Although you can take your hands off of the wheel, you can’t take your eyes off of the road. Super Cruise includes a camera that monitors your behavior to make sure you’re staying attentive to your surroundings. As long as you stay alert and on a compatible highway, Super Cruise will remain active.

 For more information on GM Super Cruise, the 2022 GMC Sierra Denali, and when you can expect to see it on our lot in Memphis, keep your eyes on the Sunrise Buick GMC at Wolfchase blog.

GMC Updates 2021 Canyon’s Trim Levels

2021 GMC Canyon - Memphis, TN

The 2021 model year will bring some significant changes to the trim levels of the GMC Canyon, a small pickup truck. Just like its cousin, the Chevy Colorado, the Canyon will go on without its base trim, along with a few other key changes.

 

New Trims

 

The 2020 GMC Canyon used to come in six trim levels: SL, Base Canyon, SLE, SLT, All Terrain, and Denali. The 2021 model will cut that down to four: The Elevation Standard, Elevation, AT4, and Denali. While the model is losing some potential combinations of cab size and bed lengths, there will still be 14 different combinations so you can build your ideal truck.

 

AT4

 

The first-ever Canyon AT4 is an off-road specialist that will come standard with a V6 engine capable of generating 308 horsepower. 31-inch Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires, Advanced Hill Descent Control, four-wheel drive with Rear Automatic Locking Differential, and a two-speed AutoTrac transfer case will make it a peerless beast both on and off the road.

 

If you want more torque, opt for the 2.8L Duramax® Turbo Diesel Engine and take advantage of its 369 pound-feet of twist. Luxury doesn’t take a backseat to the rugged capabilities of the 2021 Canyon AT4; heated front seats and a heated steering wheel will keep you comfortable on any road, in any temperature.

 

While we don’t know many more specific details about the upcoming 2021 Canyon, we hope to see you here at Sunrise Buick GMC at Wolfchase when it hits lots later this year.

GMC Yukon - Memphis, TN

The vehicle purchasing and research website iSeeCars.com recently named GMC vehicles among the market’s longest-lasting after analyzing over 15.8 million units to determine which brands most often hit the 200,000-mile mark.

An impressive 1.4 percent of GMC vehicles reached the 200,000-mile milestone, placing it among the top of the longest-lasting brands and significantly exceeding the 1.0 percent average among all automakers. GMC ranked above other recognizable American brands such as Chevrolet and Ford.

The GMC Yukon XL surpassed even more checkpoints than the rest of GMC’s lineup. iSeeCars placed the full-size SUV in the top five vehicles most likely to reach 300,000 miles. The Yukon XL’s rate of models with over 200,000 miles is more than six times that of the national average.

GMC’s dominance shines through in the SUV and truck categories, with two of the automaker’s models making the top 10 in each group. The Sierra 1500 and the Canyon made the truck list, and the Yukon XL and Yukon were near the top of the SUV segment.

Several components come together in GMC vehicles to make them dependable enough to earn a spot near the top of a heavily-researched list of the longest-lasting vehicles.
