GMC Sierra All Terrain X – This is What Off-Roading is About

2016 GMC Sierra All Terrain X

GMC has launched a limited-edition off-road version of the Sierra pickup truck called the Sierra All Terrain X. Forget what the competition is offering: this is what off-roading is all about.

The 2016 GMC Sierra All Terrain X features aggressive off-road styling and capability, with design cues taken from past pickup trucks, including a sloping back connecting the roof line with the edge of the truck bed.

It comes equipped with 18- by 8.5-inch black aluminum wheels as well as black mirrors, moldings, and pillars to enhance its aggressive looks. Meanwhile, a set of Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac MT tires grant superior traction in gravel, dirt, and mud, and the famed Z71 off-road suspension package with hill-descent technology make it nigh-impossible to lose control on a hill.

“Styling is the biggest influence on Sierra customers and the new Sierra All Terrain X builds on that with a more aggressive, personalized appearance that complements its exceptional capability,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of GMC sales and marketing.

The 2016 GMC Sierra All Terrain X will be hit our showrooms at Wiesner of Huntsville this spring.

New Chevy Ad Was Directed by Horror Movie Director Sam Raimi

creepy woods drive - new Chevy ad

When you watch a horror movie, do you ever find yourself wishing the characters were a little smarter? Ever catch yourself uselessly shouting at the screen, “No, don’t open that door”?

If you do, Chevrolet knows exactly what that’s like—and it captured that feeling in its latest ad for the all-new Cruze and Malibu, available at Wiesner of Huntsville.

It was directed by Michigan-born filmmaker Sam Raimi, who you might recognize as the name behind the supernatural cult horror film Evil Dead.

The new Chevy ad features one of those stereotypical, scared-but-clueless characters that you might find in horror films—usually one of those who are first to run to their death in a remarkable display of lack of survival instincts.

This time, though, she does survive, thanks to the audience’s warnings—which, the ad points out, are not unlike the warnings the all-new 2016 Chevy Cruze and Malibu will give you when you aren’t paying attention to danger on the road.

When To Buy A New Car: Factors To Consider

With anything in life, it can be difficult to know when to call it quits. You wonder whether you are taking all the factors into account, even after you’ve made twenty pros-vs.-cons lists. Then, there is that raw emotional attachment we develop to people and to things.  Nowhere can this be more difficult than with a vehicle. That’s why we’ve put together a few things to consider to help you know when to buy a new car.

When To Buy A New Car

First and foremost, it’s time to get rid of your vehicle once it has become unsafe. If there are too many things wrong with it–or there is some mysterious deficiency that the world’s greatest mechanic can’t diagnose–making it a danger to yourself and other drivers, get rid of it.

Sell it or trade it in if the fuel economy has become unacceptable. It may never have had great fuel economy to begin with, or it may have lost efficiency due to wear and tear over time. Either way, fuel economy is an important factor to consider. Be sure and give efficiency it’s full measure when making your evaluation.

Whatever you do, don’t fall victim to the sunk cost fallacy. That’s when you factor in payments already rendered into current evaluations. Just because you’ve paid exorbitantly for repairs in the past, those payments have been made and the repairs are over. Is it worth putting your life at risk or paying over time for bad fuel economy?

If you have any questions about how to buy a new car or wonder what your trade-in would be worth, give us a visit at Wiesner Huntsville and our friendly staff will be glad to assist.
