There is no question that trucks are essential in running your company. The question is, which truck is right for you? Choosing the right truck might seem easy at first- they all have storage and towing capacities. But from bed length, to horsepower, to seating, to fuel economy, there are many factors to consider.
A sure bet when choosing your truck is to go with the company that has specialized in trucks since 1902- General Motors Company. Manufacturing pickup trucks, commercial trucks, buses, vans, military vehicles, and SUVs, it's safe to say trucks are in their wheelhouse.
Let's take a look at some GMC work trucks to see which is right for you.
The most affordable GMC truck, the Canyon, is a great pick for active small businesses. With models that get up to 30 mpg and tow 7,700 pounds, this truck doesn't mess around. Available rear-park assist, Apple CarPlay, and wireless charging pads are just a few of the amenities that add comfort to the drive.
With Duralife brake rotors and spray-on bed liners, function and safety are key elements of Canyon's design. Bump up to the all-terrain suspension package for jobs that take you off the beaten path.
