GMC ProGrade™ Trailering System Spotlight

GMC Trailering | Memphis, TN

The GMC ProGrade™ Trailering System available on the Sierra 1500 and Sierra HD was designed to simplify the hitching and towing process. Here’s a brief overview of what this system entails and how it makes daily life in Memphis both easier and more productive.

The GMC ProGrade™ Trailering System takes the guesswork out of towing and will make you feel more confident every step of the way. Leverage the In-Vehicle Trailering App’s pre-departure checklist and trailer light test so you can put your mind at ease before you start the journey. And thanks to customizable trailer profiles, you can get on the road faster without having to adjust settings each time you hitch a new type of trailer to your Sierra.

The system has a Trailer Tire Pressure Monitoring function, so you can re-inflate tires before the air pressure gets low enough to make driving unsafe. And the Smart Trailer feature syncs with your RV’s systems so you can remotely turn on the AC or prep the water heater for a shower to keep you and your co-travelers more comfortable when you’re away from home.

Need help using your Sierra’s GMC ProGrade™ Trailering System? No worries. Just give us a call at Sunrise Buick GMC at Wolfchase. We’re here to help you get the most out of your GMC truck.

Introducing the GMC Sierra EV

Sierra EV | Memphis, TN

GMC is quickly adding more electric vehicles to its lineup. After the Hummer EV, GMC has plans to release an all-electric version of the Sierra. While it could have a unique name, it will likely just be called the Sierra EV. GMC will release this new electric truck as part of its 2023 lineup.

While GM has not released too many details about this new truck, we expect it will be powered by GM’s Ultium battery packs with the option of either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. It’s expected that the Sierra EV will be available with a variety of battery options to suit different driving preferences. The standard battery option is predicted to offer more than 200 miles of driving range, while the long-range option will likely top out around 400 miles.

Initially, the Sierra EV may be available only in the range-topping Denali trim. Though, other trim options will likely follow later on.

An innovative electric option that we may see on the Sierra EV is an onboard generator that can be used to power appliances or your home. This could be helpful during a weather emergency if your area loses power for a significant amount of time.

Stay tuned to our blog for more news on the Sierra EV. Or visit us at Sunrise Buick GMC at Wolfchase to take one of our current Sierra trucks for a whirl.

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.

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

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.

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.
