Top 5 Useful GMC Truck Accessories

Top 5 Useful GMC Truck Accessories | Clinton Twp., MI

Whether you’ve got a rugged Canyon AT4 or a workhorse Sierra HD truck, it never hurts to accessorize. With GMC truck accessories, you can easily customize your truck to meet your unique needs. These are the five we think are the most useful.

  1. GearOn™ utility rack stanchions: These adjustable stanchions help you secure overhead storage of longer cargo and are compatible with Thule lifestyle products.
  2. Cargo tie-down rings: A must-have for any truck owner, these mount in the truck bed and give you anchor points to tie down cargo so it stays in place during transit.
  3. GearOn™ bed divider package: This sturdy package makes it easier to organize your bed and secure items that may otherwise slide during acceleration and braking.
  4. LUND bed extender: If you don’t already have the MultiPro Tailgate, this extender flips in or out to contain cargo in your bed as far out as the edge of the open tailgate.
  5. Cargo net: Sometimes you just need a simple way to keep lightweight items from flying out of the bed. This cargo net made of stretch shock cords does just that.

GM Creates 4,000 New Jobs in Michigan with $7 Billion Investment

GM Creates 4,000 New Jobs in Michigan with $7 Billion Investment | Clinton Township, MI

With a $7 billion investment, General Motors is creating approximately 4,000 jobs and paving the way for an electric future for its lineups. The sizable investment will be distributed across four manufacturing sites in Michigan, and in addition to creating jobs, it will also help retain the livelihood of approximately 1,000 current employees.

The goal of this investment is to increase battery cell production as well as create the necessary infrastructure for manufacturing electric trucks.

“Today we are taking the next step in our continuous work to establish GM’s EV leadership by making investments in our vertically integrated battery production in the U.S., and our North American EV production capacity,” said Mary Barra, GM Chair and CEO. “Our plan creates the broadest EV portfolio of any automaker and further solidifies our path toward U.S. EV leadership by mid-decade.”

By 2025, GM plans to lead the automotive industry in the sales of electric vehicles, and this recent investment into four of their manufacturing sites is a pivotal step in reaching that goal.

The Orion Assembly will focus on electric truck production while the Lansing site will produce Ultium Cells batteries. The next-generation Chevy Traverse and Buick Enclave will occur at the Lansing Delta Township Assembly and upgrades are set for the Lansing Grand River Assembly.

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. This rating is 4,000-more pounds than the 2021 Sierra 1500’s maximum towing capacity of 9,000 pounds.

2022 GMC Sierra Denali Gets Hands-Free Super Cruise

2022 GMC Sierra Denali Gets Hands-Free Super Cruise | Clinton Township, MI

GM’s innovative hands-free Super Cruise technology is coming to the GMC Sierra 1500 Denali luxury pickup truck for the 2022 model year. GMC has confirmed that the feature will be available later on in 2021.

The Super Cruise system is a partially self-driving system that combines Adaptive Cruise Control, lane-centering technology, cameras that read road signs, and an expansive map of over 200,000 miles of highway across the U.S. to steer for you on compatible roads.

Even though it’s in control of the vehicle, Super Cruise still requires the driver to keep their eyes on the road. The feature is designed to sense if you stop looking, and automatically switches back to driver control in a dangerous situation or if the road becomes unfit for using Super Cruise. For instance, if you get to a stretch of road with faint lane markers that Super Cruise can’t read, you’ll need to take over driving.

The GMC Sierra 1500 Denali will be the first Super Cruise-equipped vehicle that lets you drive hands-free with a trailer attached. GMC has always worked to make trailering easier for every kind of driving, from daily commuting and work hauling to embarking on a weekend adventure. The addition of Super Cruise to the already premium Denali trim makes towing more convenient than ever.

Be sure to reserve your Super Cruise-equipped 2022 Sierra Denali at Jim Causley Buick GMC Truck in Clinton Township, Michigan, today.
