Denaliville Used: Edmonton’s Pre-Owned Dealer

Denaliville Used

Why Buy Used?

Why should you buy a used vehicle? The main reason is to save. Now, that doesn’t mean that you have to pay less money just because you’ve crossed over to the other side of the dealership. It means that your money goes further at Denaliville Used. When you buy pre-owned you can get into a higher trim vehicle with more features, or even into a different segment with more space and power. And you don’t have to worry about buying a vehicle that isn’t mechanically sound.

Five Winter Driving Tips From Capital GMC Denaliville

Winter driving tips

Everyone thinks they’re a great driver until winter (or the law of averages) hits. Then, a bunch of people slide into the ditch and blame other people for it. So, whether you’re a new driver, or an experienced one, you should read these winter driving tips.  

Following Distance

In ideal driving conditions, you’re supposed to leave a following distance of four seconds between yourself and the car in front of you. But you don’t leave a following distance of four seconds, do you? Winter driving demands that you increase your following distance to seven or eight seconds. That’s the only way you’ll have enough space to stop in the event of a sudden obstruction. Finally, for the sake of Peter, drive slowly!

Winter Driving? Winter Tires

Get winter tires. It’s that simple. When the temperature falls below 7 °C, winter tires perform better than three-season tires. And when the temperature falls below zero, three-season tires becomes patently dangerous. Why? Three-season tires are comprised of stiff rubber that doesn’t become soft in high summer temperatures. Inversely, winter tires feature soft rubber that is pliable in extreme cold. On top of that, winter tires have aggressive tread patterns that cut through snow. Still don’t believe me?

Pump the Brakes: Don’t Pump the Brakes

You’ve probably heard a ton of conflicting information about braking in icy conditions. But it’s pretty simple. I’m going to assume you have ABS. If you lose traction on slippery pavement, press your brakes down firmly and don’t release them until you’ve regained control. If you have Electronic Stability Control (as all vehicles manufactured after September 2011 do) then you can even turn the steering wheel to the direction you want to travel, and the system will apply braking power to the correct wheels to make that happen.

Losing grip completely, as you would on black ice, demands a different strategy – ESC or not. When you’re going over black ice, don’t hit the brakes. Simply take your foot off the accelerator and wait until you’ve passed over the patch of ice (usually they aren’t greater than a few square metres). Jamming on the brakes and turning the steering wheel will give you even less control and increase the likelihood that your car makes a sudden, unpredictable maneuver as soon as it hits drier pavement.

Don’t Drive

If you’re going to be driving on the highway, make sure you check the highway hotline or a similar service before heading out. When the highway is icy, or visibility is poor due to blowing snow, it may be better to cancel your plans. First, the chance of a dangerous accident increases. If it’s hard to stop, maneuver, and see, you’re more likely to get in a collision – it’s that simple. But that’s not the only danger of extreme winter driving.

If conditions are dangerous for you, then they’re also dangerous for emergency services. While you’re waiting at the side of the road or in the ditch, it may be difficult for a tow truck to get to you. Try to wait inside your vehicle, but only run the engine for around ten minutes per hour in order to keep the heat up while conserving fuel. Also, make sure the tailpipe is not clogged so you aren’t breathing in exhaust fumes. Hopefully you’ve also packed some essential supplies. Which brings us to the next tip.

Safety Kit

You never know when you might get stuck out in the cold, so it’s important to remain prepared. Which is why it’s important that you put a safety kit in your vehicle. What should you include in your safety kit? You need some gear for staying warm, blankets, ski pants, boots, and gloves. You should also have a shovel and maybe even some sand to dig yourself out. If you’re really serious, you may even include road flares, food, water, and a knife in your winter safety kit. 

One Million Denalis Sold

GMC has sold one million Denalis and it took less than 20 years.

One million Denalis have been sold.

“Mountain of a Milestone”

Hey, it’s their pun not mine. Denali is the tallest mountain in North America, and the Denali trim is the peak of professional grade. The name Denali commands so much respect that it often replaces the model names of GMC vehicles. But before we can talk about “now,” we need a little history lesson.

The Denali line was introduced in 1997 with the Yukon Denali concept. It was conceived as a one-off, but hit production the following year. The concept drew its significance from the environment in which it was introduced. At that point, the SUV was clearly prioritising function over form. But GMC “sensed an opportunity to create a premium-grade model that could resonate with customers on a whole new level.” In other words, they saw an opportunity to combine the SUV’s natural capability with luxury comfort.

The production Yukon Denali of 1998 brought unique moldings, a single-colour paint job, and chrome wheels. Needless to say, it looked good. With the popularity of the Yukon, GMC immediately moved to expand the Denali lineup. In 2002, the Sierra 1500 became the first Denali pickup. Now, the Denali product portfolio consists of three SUVs (Terrain, Acadia, and Yukon) and three pickups (Canyon, Sierra, and Sierra HD). The expanded lineup allows more drivers to combine professional-grade performance with premium features.

One Million Denalis Plus

Speaking of premium features, the current selection of Denali vehicles have plenty. The latest technology comes standard. You get the connectivity of a 4G LTE WiFi hotspot, and ultimate safety provided by a suite Driver Alert technologies. On the inside, you can expect leather-appointed, heated front seats with French stitching, and aluminum accents. Finally, on the outside, signature chrome grilles and LED lighting project an aura of unrelenting confidence.

With the SUV and truck market still expanding, the demand for luxury features and innovative technology will only grow. Now that Denali has cemented itself atop the marketplace, GMC’s future is exciting. One thing’s for sure: it won’t take GMC 20 years to sell the next million.
