FIVE WAYS TO ENJOY SUMMER WITH GMC TRUCKS AND SUVS

SHARE:

Summer is the time to break away from the 9 to 5 and get out to enjoy some fun in the sun. And there’s no better way to do it than to pack up your GMC truck or SUV and hit the open road or trail.

With GMC’s professional-grade vehicles, the opportunities to embrace the great outdoors are limitless. Their authentic capability combined with a host of available GMC Accessories offers drivers unique experiences that reflect their personalities and interests.

Here are some ways your GMC Yukon, Terrain, Sierra 1500, Sierra Heavy Duty, Canyon or Acadia can help check off items on your summer bucket list.

1. SPEND A DAY AT THE LAKE

What’s more summery than a day at the lake? Whether you’re towing a boat, hauling kayaks or loading up fishing gear — GMC offers everything you need to make some memories on the water.

If you need to tow a boat, a GMC truck or SUV has got you covered. Their power under the hood and thoughtful trailering features like the available ProGrade Trailering System and myGMC mobile app trailering integration will allow you to maneuver with confidence when towing boats of all sizes.

For kayaks, canoes and fishing gear, maximize your cargo and hauling capabilities and organize your gear with several available GMC Accessories like GearOn Cargo Management Systems and Roof Cross Rail packages that can help make hauling fishing gear or kayaks seamless.

2. A WEEKEND OFF THE GRID

Summer is the perfect time to unplug and spend some time off the grid. GMC can help make your camping trip a memorable one, whether you’re roughing it in a tent or glamping in a fifth wheel camper.

GMC trucks and SUVs are known for their towing capabilities. Many accessories can help make pulling large campers and fifth wheels a breeze — available accessories like trailer hitches, trailer hitch balls and fifth wheel hitches that have a wide range of weight capacities.

For outdoor Overlanding enthusiasts, turn your truck or SUV into a camper with a high-quality accessory like tents from Napier® Outdoors and Freespirit Recreation. There are a variety of tents available at GMC Accessories that fit long or short bed trucks, can sit up high using the vehicle’s rooftop or can be extended off the liftgate of an SUV. These tents offer adequate shelter and comfort for any camping trip.

3. ROAD TRIP LIKE A PRO

There’s nothing more exciting than packing up a car, rolling down the windows and hitting the open road with your friends. Packing for a road trip can be overwhelming. Luckily, GMC Accessories offers cargo management tools for your pickup truck or SUV that can help keep your gear and luggage organized.

With the GMC Infotainment System equipped with Apple CarPlay®† and Andriod Auto™† compatibility, you get a simpler way to use your phone in the car. Get your favorite maps, media and messaging all on your car display.

Also, the GMC Infotainment System comes with Google built-in compatibility, where you’ll get hands-free help in the car with Google Assistant. The best way to get around is with Google Maps built-in, and with Google Play, you can download some of your favorite apps directly into your car.

4. HIKE YOUR FAVORITE TRAIL

If you’re looking to go on a hiking trip, a GMC is a trusted companion on and off the trail. GMC trucks and SUVs like the Canyon AT4 and Terrain AT4 were born to be driven on more than just paved roads. Their capability and rugged personality empower drivers to explore new horizons and blaze new trails.

If you need to remain connected while off the grid, a built-in Wi-Fi Hotspot is available on most GMC trucks and SUVs. With a GMC equipped with a Wi-Fi Hotspot, you’ll be able to turn your favorite trail into a remote office.

5. GET OFF THE BEATEN PATH

For those who enjoy more hardcore adventures, a GMC truck has available features needed to haul or tow a dirt bike, mountain bike or ATV and is capable of handling some of the most unforgiving terrains.

Pull a trailer confidently on dirt, rock or sand with your GMC Sierra 1500 AT4, Sierra HD AT4, Canyon AT4 and Yukon AT4 — which are all equipped with several rugged towing features that can help take your off-roading adventure to the next level.

In addition, the versatility of the GMC MultiPro tailgate, available on the GMC Sierra 1500 and Sierra HD, makes hauling off-roading toys of all sizes a breeze. When carrying longer loads like dirt bikes, the load stop feature creates a barrier that helps prevent items from sliding out while conveniently placed tie-down hooks keep everything secure.

BUILT FOR ANY ADVENTURE

Ready to make your summer unforgettable? GMC’s lineup of Professional Grade trucks and SUVs is the perfect companion for your next adventure.
