Since 2014, GMC has continuously fine-tuned the Canyon mid-size truck to meet drivers’ demands. The introduction of the GMC Canyon AT4 brought off-roading dreams to life with its Off-Road Suspension Package and Advanced Hill Descent Control. But the next-generation Canyon AT4X is taking off-road capability even further.

Though full details have not yet been released, the Canyon AT4X promises to optimize both performance and luxury.

What’s New for the 2022 Buick Lineup

2022 Buick Lineup | Memphis, TN

The Buick lineup of SUVs received a range of updates for the 2022 model year, from cosmetic changes to engine upgrades.

The subcompact 2022 Encore features a brand new turbocharged engine that gets it a big increase in horsepower and torque. It’s not the only Buick with a changing engine lineup — the sporty Encore GX loses its base engine, so the standard engine is the more powerful three-cylinder that puts out 155 horsepower.

Not much has changed on the compact Envision, but Buick has tweaked the styling options, adding Sapphire Blue to the exterior color options. Special red stitching and logos are available at certain trim levels, and new alloy sport pedals have been added.

The biggest changes this year come in the mid-size Enclave. The 2022 Enclave feels more modern than its predecessor thanks to updated exterior styling and a new center console. It also has expanded safety features, with the Buick Driver Confidence Plus package now standard at the base level.

This package includes Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, and Blind Spot Monitoring, to name a few. If safety tech is high on your list of necessities in a new SUV, Buick has made them more accessible and affordable than ever.

Discover the GMC ProGrade® Trailering System

GMC Truck Trailering | Memphis, TN

Nothing can ruin a day on the work site or a relaxing weekend away like a trailer malfunction. Thankfully, the GMC ProGrade® Trailering System is here to save the day.

This system is an intelligent array of trailering technologies that make your towing experience run more smoothly than ever. It includes three main components: the In-Vehicle Trailering App, myGMC Mobile App integration, and Smart Trailer features.

The in-vehicle app lets you access trailering features from the infotainment system in your GMC truck. You can use it to check pre-departure checklists and run a light test on your trailer, as well as access customizable trailer profiles, Trailer Tire Pressure Monitoring, and even a theft alert system.

The myGMC Mobile App provides many of the same features, but from the convenience of your own smartphone. It also offers a trailer load calculator and can send you alerts for trailer components like the trailer’s miles and tire pressure.

Smart Trailer features work with compatible recreational trailers, allowing you to access smart features of your trailer through either your phone or your infotainment system. More specifically, with a trailer equipped with ASA Electronics’ IN-Command® Control System with Global Connect®, you’ll be able to operate its climate control, adjust its slides and awnings, and check on its generator functions in either of the apps mentioned above.

What is a Lifted Truck?

2022 GMC Sierra 1500 Crew Cab | Memphis, TN

You’ll feel like the king of the road when you’re riding high on a lifted truck — but even with a hefty list of advantages, lifted trucks aren’t for everyone. Here’s what you need to know about lifting your GMC Sierra 1500 or GMC Sierra HD.

How do you lift a truck?

You can lift a truck via modifying its suspension system or by simply lifting its body. A suspension lift will require the replacement and modification of other parts, while a body lift requires minimal additional modification. For maximum height, your truck can be lifted with both methods. Either way, a lift will enable your truck to have a greater ground clearance and accommodate larger, more rugged tires.

Pros

Thanks to offering a higher vantage point, you’ll enjoy greater visibility in your lifted GMC Sierra. Lifted trucks are also ideal for adventurous drivers — since your vehicle is taller, it’ll provide better ground clearance and water fording capabilities, so it’s perfect for off-road adventures. Plus, when it’s time to trade in your truck for a new one, you can rest easy knowing that lifted trucks have a great resale value.


Cons

If you do a lot of highway driving, a lifted truck probably isn’t for you. When you lift your truck, you’ll diminish its fuel economy, so expect to make more frequent stops at the pump. Plus, those oversized tires aren’t cheap to replace, so be sure to leave extra room in your budget for maintenance. And finally, you’ll have to drive carefully in a lifted truck, since taller vehicles are more prone to rollovers.

Whether you’re looking for a capable truck or to have a lift kit expertly installed, come to Sunrise Buick GMC Covington Pike in Memphis, Tennessee.

Headlight Maintenance Tips

headlight maintenance tips

Whether you’re driving around the back roads of Shelby County at night or driving through morning fog on your commute to downtown Memphis, strong headlights are essential for maximizing your visibility. Here’s a look at a few handy headlight maintenance tips to help you stay safe on the road.

Restore the headlights

If your car’s headlight casings are looking foggy or yellow instead of crystal clear, it’s time to clean them with a headlight restoration kit. This kit will contain everything you need to sand, wax, and polish your car’s headlight lenses. If you’d rather skip this step, you can always simply buy new headlights.

Replace the bulbs

If your headlights are dim despite clear lenses, it’s probably time for a new set of bulbs. As a general rule, it’s a good idea to replace your car’s exterior lighting bulbs every few years,

Make adjustments

Cars with auto-leveling headlights can sometimes suffer from misalignment. You can check the bubble levelers on the top or side of the headlights to see if they’ve slipped out of alignment. If they’re askew, locate the bolts or screws on the sides or back of the headlights, and adjust them accordingly. For more guidance, check your vehicle owner’s manual.

These aren’t the only factors that could impact your car’s headlight strength. A failing battery, faulty wiring, or alternator issues could also be to blame. If your car’s headlights are having trouble, schedule a visit to the Sunrise Buick GMC Covington Pike service center in Memphis, Tennessee.

Smart storage containers

It even comes with attachment straps that prevent it from sliding around in the back seat. You can also opt for a vertical or horizontal cargo net to corral bulky items, like sporting equipment.

Exterior cargo carriers

Need more than the 52.7 cubic feet of cargo space that your Envision has to offer? Supplement it with an external cargo carrier. The TRANSPORTER COMBI™ Hitch-Mounted Cargo Box by Thule is perfect for carrying additional camping gear or road trip supplies.
