Meet the New 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 AT4X AEV Edition | Clinton Twp., MI

The brand-new 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 AT4X AEV Edition delivers off-road-oriented capability, race-tested accessories, and exclusive design cues that set this pickup apart from the competition.

Turn heads with the 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 AT4X AEV Edition’s custom grille and unique front fascia. These components were specially designed to work in tandem with the model’s 33-inch Goodyear Wrangler Territory MT tires and custom AEV bumper. It rides on gloss black laser-engraved 18-inch AEV Salta wheels, and proudly sports AEV badging on the inside and out. 

It’s easy to see why the 2023 GMC Sierra 1500 AT4X AEV Edition has been called the most capable Sierra 1500 to ever roll off the assembly line. It’s equipped with time-tested accessories like the tailor-made AEV-stamped steel front and rear bumpers. These durable components are built from 3-millimeter heavy-duty steel, and feature recovery points and winch capability. And you can count on this bumper to weather the elements thanks to its powder and e-coated surface, which resists corrosion and sun damage.

You can also breathe easy when traversing rough terrain thanks to this model’s five hot-stamped boron steel skid plates, which are estimated to be three-and-a-half times stronger than their cold-stamped counterparts.

The Sierra 1500 AT4X AEV Edition is expected to be on dealer lots during the later half of the 2023 model year. To learn more about reserving your own Sierra 1500 AT4X AEV Edition, contact Jim Causley Buick GMC Truck in Clinton Township, Michigan.

GMC Hosts Honoring Our Heroes Gala

GMC Hosts Honoring Our Heroes Gala | Clinton Twp., MI

In April, GMC teamed with the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation to host the Honoring our Heroes Gala. The sixth event of its kind, the gala supports the Siller Foundation’s Smart Home Program as well as the Fallen of Wounded Soldiers Fund of Michigan.

The Smart Home Program helps provide wounded service members with custom homes catered to improving their quality of life. These smart homes are offered completely mortgage-free — a comparatively small gesture for the price that many of these soldiers have paid for their country.

“GMC’s Professional Grade identity is a perfect fit for these organizations because it is the same philosophy these veterans live by day in and day out,” said GMC Marketing Director Rich Latek. “This mindset drives us to strengthen our efforts and help provide our veterans the state-of-the-art Smart Homes they need to achieve independent lives.”

GMC playing a key role in the Honoring our Heroes Gala is just the latest example of General Motors supporting the military and veterans. GM employs around 5,000 veterans around America and plans to hire 500 more vets by the end of 2022.

GM also supported the Siller Foundation’s Smart Home Program as well as the Fallen of Wounded Soldiers Fund of Michigan in April with a live concert at Sound Board — Motor City Casino. Proceeds from that show, which featured award-nominated country act Big & Rich, benefited both organizations.

Jim Causley Buick GMC is proud to support our military members and veterans in Michigan — including those stationed at Selfridge Air National Guard Base. Check out our selection of great vehicles online and contact us to learn more about the GM Military Discount.

Forget about underpowered electric vehicles. The all-new electric GMC Sierra Denali is on its way, and it’s bound to prove that EVs can deliver groundbreaking power, impressive capabilities, and rugged good looks.

Capabilities & Technology

“Sierra Denali holds tremendous equity for GMC and our customers,” explained vice president of GMC Duncan Aldred. “We now have an opportunity to evolve Sierra’s capabilities and technologies, as afforded by transitioning to an all-electric propulsion while also elevating the luxurious design and comfort associated with Denali.”

2022 Sierra 1500 Duramax Has More Towing Capacity

2022 Sierra 1500 Duramax Has More Towing Capacity | Clinton Township, MI

GMC is releasing a powerful update for the capable 2022 Sierra 1500. With the 3.0-liter turbodiesel Duramax® engine under the hood, the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 has more towing capacity to handle your most arduous tasks on the job or at the campsite.

“Sierra’s momentum continues to accelerate, as the fastest growing model in the segment,” said Duncan Aldred, global vice president of GMC and Buick. “With the 2022 Sierra, GMC is offering customers more advanced technologies, upscale appointments, and increased capability across the Sierra lineup, including the all-new Sierra Denali Ultimate and AT4X.”

The available Duramax® turbodiesel engine generates 277 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque. A properly equipped 2022 Sierra 1500 (Duramax® engine and rear-wheel drive) will be able to tow a maximum weight of 13,200 pounds. Compared to the 2021 Sierra 1500, the 2022 model can tow 4,000 more pounds. How did GMC do it? They made changes to the Sierra 1500’s chassis. The changes meant the truck could handle the automaker’s maximum towing package, which thus enabled the increased towing capacity.

Rear-wheel drive-equipped 2022 Sierra 1500’s aren’t the only models that boast an impressive towing capacity increase. 2022 Sierra 1500 models with four-wheel drive can tow a maximum weight of 13,000 pounds.
