Have you ever had to pull a load in your vehicle and had it constantly swaying on the road behind you? It’s an unsettling feeling to have an uncontrollable trailer give you the never-ending fear that you may hit something or someone. The solution: Trailer Sway Control from GMC to help making towing a steady proposition. The 2012 GMC Terrain and Acadia crossovers, both of which feature Trailer Sway Control, are now on the lot at Crawford Buick GMC.
StabiliTrak stability control with Trailer Sway Control uses sensors to measure the force and motions created by unexpected side-to-side motions caused by a trailer or other device being towed. The vehicle is able to correct these motions automatically by applying individual brakes that allow the vehicle and trailer to fall back in line. Most of Acadia and Terrain trim levels also come standard with rearview cameras, making trailer hitching easier.
“GMC customers have high demands for comfort, performance, and capability,” said Robert Krause, lead trailering engineer for General Motors. “Those qualities have to stand up to the boaters, bikers, and campers who own our vehicles.”
“For most uses, there are very few sacrifices that come with downsizing a tow vehicle,” said Krause. “The vast majority of consumers are towing smaller boats and even the smallest GMC can handle a sizeable boat and trailer. Drivers simply need to match with the necessary performance level.”
Both the 2012 GMC Terrain and 2012 GMC Acadia are now available at our El Paso dealership. Visit Crawford Buick GMC in person or check us out online at www.crawfordautos.com to view photos and information on Terrain and Acadia models.
