GMC LIFE

ROAD TRIP LIKE A PRO WITH GMC PICKUPS AND SUVS

SHARE:

Nothing compares to hitting the road with your friends or family for a weekend getaway or an extended vacation. It offers a chance to experience new foods, meet new people and see new sights.

While packing and picking the best route is important, perhaps more important is having a vehicle to elevate the road trip experience. That’s where GMC trucks and SUVs come in. The bold-looking exteriors, comfortable interiors and powerful capability are bound to make a lasting impression wherever you go.

Here are just some of the available technologies and accessories that can seriously upgrade your next road trip.

MUST-HAVE APPS

Proper planning for an extended road trip is a must. And with GMC pickups and SUVs, drivers can take advantage of innovative in-vehicle apps to help bring ease and save time.

GMC trucks and SUVs with compatible infotainment systems are equipped with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Google built-in and Amazon Alexa Built-In technologies. These in-vehicle technologies offer a host of apps for entertainment, allow for hands-free calling, getting directions and so much more. 

Another convenience is the all-new GMC Maps+, which provides navigation assistance with the voice-command functionality of Alexa Built-In. Maps+ is available for GMC pickups and SUVs with compatible infotainment systems.

This fully embedded navigation tool not only gives turn-by-turn directions, but drivers can enjoy music or podcasts in a single and simple screen.

CONFIDENCE AND CONVENIENCE

GMC trucks offer trailering technologies that can help make scenarios like towing a camper or navigating a tight parking spot a breeze.

For example, the 2022 Sierra Heavy Duty offer up to 15 different available camera views. These views include High Definition Surround Vision, Transparent Trailer, Rear Camera Mirror and Bed View Camera. These camera views can help drivers with multiple views and monitoring a truck and trailer while out on the road.

Sierra Heavy Duty and Sierra 1500 also have the available Smart Trailer technology. This innovative feature allows drivers to interact with RVs featuring ASA Electronics’ iN•Command® Control System with Global Connect®. Remote commands can be made from the inside of the cabin or with a compatible smartphone. So drivers and passengers alike can enjoy conveniences like prepping a water heater for a hot shower or an air conditioner to cool off the RV’s interior.

ON-THE-GO ENTERTAINMENT

While drivers need to keep their focus on the road and their hands on the wheel, having entertainment can help pass the time for passengers.

One option is WarnerMedia RIDE™†, which gives access to more than 1,000 hours of live and on-demand movies and TV shows. It comes at no additional cost to the unlimited data plan and programming can be viewed from a compatible device connected to a vehicle’s Wi-Fi®† Hotspot.

Another way for passengers to stay entertained is with the available Rear-Seat Media System for the SLT, AT4 and Denali trim levels for the 2022 Yukon and Yukon XL. This advanced media system features two 12.6-inch diagonal high-definition touch screens mounted on the back of the front seats. Passengers in the second and third rows can enjoy media or entertainment by connecting their own compatible streaming device, game console, tablet or smartphone via USB or HDMI ports.

The high-resolution touch screens are also adjustable for better visibility and can be customized for independent viewing. Rear seat passengers can even send navigation information to the center front infotainment screen, allowing the driver to stay focused on the road.

ROAD TRIP ACCESSORIES

GMC offers a wide variety of extras from GMC Accessories for your pickup truck or SUV that provide entertainment, convenience and versatility during your road trip.

Keep your cargo and luggage organized and secure with cargo management tools like an exterior cargo carrier from Thule®†. These carriers can offer more room inside the vehicle or provide additional storage and can be secured to the roof or hitch of a GMC SUV or truck outfitted with the appropriate mounting equipment. GMC Accessories also offers several options to keep cargo and valuables secure in your Acadia, Yukon or Terrain including a GMC-branded cargo net, which can be purchased here

Keep your passengers or kids entertained with a pair of Tabor® Bluetooth†® headphones by KICKER®† from Associated Accessories, found here. These headphones offer over 100 feet of Bluetooth range, up to 24 hours of battery life, can connect to phones or tablets, and have built-in microphones to answer phone calls. 

A PERFECT GETAWAY

When the open road calls, there’s no better answer than a GMC pickup truck or SUV.

Not only will you enjoy their head-turning exteriors and first-class interiors, but the advanced innovations that exemplify GMC’s commitment to Professional Grade trucks and SUVs.
