Reasons to Buy a Truck

Pickups are more popular than ever these days, and it’s no wonder why. If you’re in the market for a new vehicle, muscular hauling and towing power, confident handling, and conveniently customizable variety are just a few of the many reasons to buy a truck.

Hauling and towing power

If you need to haul a big load or pull a heavy trailer, pickups boast designs with the size, bed space, and ability to get the job done. Whether you’re helping a friend move, tackling a do-it-yourself project around the house, or pulling your boat to the bay for the weekend, a truck is your best bet for effortless transportation.

Confident handling

With their size, ground clearance, and available four-wheel-drive configurations, trucks are uniquely capable of handling adverse conditions and tough terrain. If you’re going off-road, dodging potholes, or driving in a part of the country where it snows, pickups provide the safest, most sure-footed way to travel.

Convenient variety

Are you strictly in the market for a rugged workhorse, or are you looking for an all-terrain recreational ride or a luxurious highway cruiser? Whatever your transportation needs are, there’s a truck out there for you. For example, the 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 lineup offers everything from a worksite-ready base model to the off-roading AT4 to the sophisticated Denali trim. And if you want a differently-sized pickup, check out the midsize Colorado or the massive Sierra HD.

To experience the benefits of buying a truck for yourself, stop by Rivard Buick GMC and take the Canyon, Sierra 1500, or Sierra HD out for a test drive.

Take a 2015 GMC Canyon Virtual Test Drive From Home Today

GMC CanyonFinally, a test drive that’s more about the vehicle’s features and less about obeying traffic laws. That is what GMC is offering with their 2015 GMC Canyon pickup truck. In an interactive offering called Canyon Experience, computer users can put the truck though its paces. First, they can pinpoint their home location and through an interface with Google Maps, then users can then “see” a GMC Canyon in their home neighborhood.

From the comfort of the operator’s home, he or she can custom road-test the Canyon in every possible weather and terrain condition while the engineering behind the truck’s design is outlined on the screen.

“The Canyon Experience will appeal to the variety of lifestyles and interests of our very diverse audience,” said Kenn Bakowski, Canyon marketing manager, in a statement. “Customers can learn about the various Canyon attributes that interest them, including capability, safety, the quiet cabin, connectivity and more.”

Customers can use the GMC Canyon virtual test drive features to configure the truck’s cabin and bed to best suit their own needs, while also “loading” it up with various cargo to see the diverse hauling capabilities of the 2015 GMC Canyon. If you’d like to go beyond the virtual, and take an actual reality test-drive of a Canyon, come into Rivard Buick GMC, today.
