Differences Between the GMC Acadia and Chevrolet Traverse

2022 Chevrolet Traverse | Collierville, TN

At first glance, the 2022 GMC Acadia and Chevrolet Traverse might appear to be twins. However, these two models have some key differences to consider if you need some help deciding which one to bring home. That’s especially true when it comes to space and strength. 

Though the 2022 GMC Acadia can seat up to seven people, it’s not as roomy as the 2022 Chevy Traverse. It offers 41.7 cubic feet of space behind the second row and 79 cubic feet when you collapse all of the rear seats. The larger Traverse can accommodate up to eight riders. There’s 57.8 cubic feet behind the second row. When you need more space for pets or possessions than people, collapse both back rows to access 98.2 cubic feet.

Both models are both reasonably efficient in terms of mileage — but the Traverse is the better choice when it comes to towing. But the Acadia can tow only 4,000 pounds max, while the Traverse can tow 5,000 pounds.

Lastly, the Acadia and Traverse contrast when it comes to trim options. The Acadia has more specialized trim levels, which include the luxury-oriented Denali and the off-road-focused AT4. But the Traverse has a higher quantity of trims — 6 to be exact. So, if you want a wide array of trims to choose from, go with the Chevy model.

Test-drive the 2022 Acadia and Traverse for yourself when you and your family stop by Sunrise Chevrolet Buick GMC at Collierville. Our friendly sales reps will be happy to help you pick just the right SUV to fit your family’s budget, preferences, and needs.

Things to Love About the GMC ProGrade™ Trailering System

GMC ProGrade™ Trailering System | Sunrise Chevrolet Buick GMC | Collierville, TN

GMC trucks not only look stylish but they have the capability you need for any towing task as you go about life in Collierville, Tennessee. Whether you use your Sierra for work, play, or a bit of both, the GMC ProGrade™ Trailering System will make towing both safer and easier. Here are just some of the benefits this system offers.

For starters, the system has an In-Vehicle Trailering App. The app has a pre-departure checklist and trailer light test functions so you can feel more prepared before you start each trip. Customizable trailer profiles “remember” different types of trailers you pull on a regular basis, which saves time if you tow a variety of loads as part of your daily routine.

You can also monitor tire pressure during a trip, as well as fuel economy and mileage. This translates to a more informed driving experience.

Tap into the intelligence of the Smart Trailer feature when using your Sierra to transport an RV on your family’s travels. It works in tandem with the RV’s systems so you can prep the water heater for a shower or turn on the AC from a distance.

Summer Maintenance Tips for Your Car

Summer in Tennessee means high temperatures and plenty of humidity. The last thing you want to happen is for your car to leave you stranded on the side of the road on a sweltering day. With a little bit of preventative care, you can help prevent this from happening. Follow these summer maintenance tips to get started.

Summer Maintenance Tips | Sunrise Chevrolet Buick GMC At Collierville | Collierville, TN

Check Your Battery

Your car’s battery is highly susceptible to heat. High temperatures can cause the battery fluid to evaporate quickly. Have your battery tested to make sure it’s ready for the season ahead.

Inspect Your Tires

The only thing keeping you in contact with the road is your car’s tires. Look them over and make sure you have enough tread depth, there isn’t uneven wearing, and they’re properly inflated. If you find any problems, have them checked by a professional.

Check Your Fluids

Along with the battery fluid, your vehicle’s other fluids can start to disappear in the summer. Check vital fluids like coolant, engine oil, transmission fluid, and windshield washer fluid to make sure they are at the proper levels.

Test the HVAC System

If your air conditioning doesn’t seem as cold as it used to, it could need a recharge. Take your car in to have the system checked out.
