The hot, hot days of summer are here again in Memphis, and that means a whole new set of tests for your vehicle. Whether you’ve got an old classic you’ve been driving for a long time or a new GMC or Buick recently purchased at Sunrise Buick GMC at Covington Pike, there are necessary steps you can take to ensure that your vehicle is up for whatever challenges lie ahead. These summer service tips will help get you on the right track.
What could possibly be worse than getting caught in a vehicle with no
A/C on a day in the three-digit range? Get ahead of this potential disaster by
having your vehicle’s HVAC system inspected before the temps start rising to
crazy heights. By also having your heating inspected, you can stay ahead of the
winter yet to come.
Engine oil is the life blood of your vehicle — not having enough or
having oil that’s too dirty can spell disaster. Check your owner’s manual for
the recommended oil-change intervals and stick to the plan. This will help
ensure better performance in the short term and it cuts down on the possibility
of engine failure in the long run.
Just a few years ago, the GMC Acadia entered a
new generation with a new design. Now for the 2020 model year, it’s due for a
mid-cycle redesign, and many of the upgrades went into the refreshed GMC Acadia
Denali. The luxurious 2020 Acadia features exclusive changes to the exterior
and a quiet, plush cabin with all the amenities you could want.
Reshaped full-LED headlights are standard on
the Acadia Denali trim, along with touches like 20-inch wheels and
power-folding mirrors. A hands-free
power liftgate comes standard to make drivers’ lives simpler. With more
passenger volume than previous models and an 8-inch infotainment system with
navigation, drivers have plenty of room to cruise to their favorite music.
In addition, the Denali trim level also offers
a standard, all-new turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine
that delivers 230 HP and 258 lb-ft of torque.
All models of the 2020 Acadia, including the
refreshed GMC Acadia Denali, will feature a new push-button digital gear
selector as well as a brand-new 9-speed automatic transmission. New storage
spaces and a wireless phone charger are included. A reduction in noise and
vibration in the cabin also makes it a relaxing ride.
While we await the 2020 edition, head on over to Sunrise Buick GMC Covington for a closer look at the 2019 GMC Acadia Denali.
