First Look at the All-New GMC Hummer EV

GMC EV Coming Soon - Memphis, TN

General Motors shocked car enthusiasts everywhere when the automaker announced that the infamous Hummer would be revived under its GMC brand. In advance of GM’s fall showcase where full details about the macho vehicle’s revival are expected to be released, Sunrise Buick GMC at Wolfchase has compiled some of the juiciest facts about the upcoming Hummer EV.

Eco-Friendly: If you remember anything about the Hummer’s original run, you probably know that its aggressive body and impressive performance didn’t exactly qualify it as an eco-friendly vehicle. The all-new iteration of the Hummer has set out to challenge your preconceptions with its innovative new all-electric motor and Ultium battery with quick charge capabilities.

High-Tech: The new Hummer will also be filled to the brim with a bunch of exciting technologies. Though we aren’t sure what the Hummer’s “Crab Mode” has in store for us quite yet, we do know that the new vehicle will feature the fan-favorite Super Cruise autonomous driving technology, previously only available on Cadillac models.

Mega-Powered: Like its predecessor, the all-new GMC Hummer is expected to pack a major punch of power. The Hummer is expected to deliver a massive 1,000 horsepower and an unheard-of 11,500 lb-ft of wheel torque.

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 Vehicles Among Longest-Lasting On the Road

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. Ample forward-thinking, standard safety features help you prevent collisions, keep your ride intact, and give you the peace of mind you need on the road.

To get behind the wheel of some of the longest-lasting vehicles on the road today, swing by Sunrise Buick GMC at Wolfchase and head out for a few test drives.

The upgraded infotainment system is among the best GM has ever offered,” said Jim Redden at Pamplin.
