Certified Pre Owned GMC Pickup Trucks in Connecticut
They say the Universe has a way of balancing itself out. But with all the trouble we’re seeing, where’s all the good that’s supposed to make it an even sum game? Well, it’s likely coming from the places you least expected, and today I’ll prove that as I tell you about GMC’s latest Certified Pre-Owned program. Yeah, it’s that good, and for about 3 minutes worth of reading time, you’ll see why that is.
The first thing people notice about CPOs is their alluring price, significantly lower than those of brand-new vehicles, although every CPO is within a 5 model year of the car's current rendition and must have less than 75.000 miles on board, so they're relatively new cars. Once the price catches your eye, and you see the car’s great overall condition, some fear might begin to set it, and GM took every precaution toward those away. The first thing that naturally comes to mind is, "What risks do I take by buying this car? After all, it's been previously owned, driven around, and I have no idea under what conditions that happened."
It's been said, GM took steps to address every single stress point of that statement. First of all, you'll receive a full vehicle history courtesy of their partner provider, CARFAX often referred to as the most trusted name in Vehicle History Reports. Then, no car receives the Certified badge of honor without undergoing a scrupulous 172-point inspection by professional, GM-vetted mechanics. Every faulty part and damaged piece is marked so it can later be repaired or replaced. Once the job’s done, the car is returned to factory condition when it comes to its engine, electrical system, and general aesthetics.
Considering cars must have under 75.000 miles on board and be no older than five years, the vast majority of them are in good condition even before the rigorous inspection and repair job.
If these won’t cover the bulk of the risk associated with buying a previously owned car, the two warranties GM offers, surely will. First, there is the Bumper-to-Bumper Limited Warranty, that GM describes best by the company itself as covering “almost every part of our vehicles”. It’s valid for either a full year or 12.000 miles, and it’s complemented by the incredible 6-Year/100,000-Mile Powertrain Limited Warranty. Yes, you’ve read that right. Every Certified Pre-Owned GM comes with a powertrain warranty that will last for up to 6 years or 100.000 miles. A full-car inspection, followed by repairs done to the highest factory standards, then topped with a full vehicle history and two extremely broad warranties. That’s a compelling case for safety, making the buyers we’ve worked with trust a CPO as much as they would a brand new car.
Apart from a lower price and a safe purchase, GMC Certified Pre Owned trucks come with plenty of other perks as well. You'll get three months both SIRIUSXM, the internet radio provider, and On Star’s Safety & Security Plan and Connected Services including remote start and door unlock from your smartphone fitted onto your car free of charge. Once that time expires you’re not forced to keep the subscriptions, so you’re basically getting a huge free trial. As if all of these weren’t enough, CPO buyers also get two free scheduled service checks that will take care of your routine oil and oil filter checks and replacement, tire rotations, and multi-point inspections.
The Canyon sports one of the best exterior looks in the pick-up truck market, has a top-end infotainment system, and since we’re talking trucks, it excels at powertrain options. Starting with the base option in the form of a 2.5-liter inline-4 that produces 200 horsepower and 191 pound-feet of torque, you can only do better and better. A 3.6-liter V-6 that makes 308 hp and 275 pound-feet of torque comes next, and it will be able to tow up to 7000 pounds. The engine trinity is completed by the 2.8-liter turbodiesel which at first sounds underpowered with its 186 horsepower, but then you hear about the whopping 369 pound-feet of torque.
The Sierra, with its opulent Denali line, the ample number of trim options, and powerful powertrains is what most pick-up truck prospective buyers would call a dream car. Just think that the base powertrain is a 4.3-liter V-6 able to put out 285 horsepower and 305 pound-feet of torque. Multiple upgrades are available that culminate with a 6.2-liter V8, that will produce 420 hp and 460 pound-feet of torque, enough to be able to tow up to 12.000 pounds. If that isn’t a pick-up truck worth having, I don’t know which is.
