2022 GMC Sierra AT4 vs. 2022 Chevy Silverado Trail Boss: Mechanical Differences

The 2022 GMC Sierra AT4 and 2022 Chevy Silverado Trail Boss are similar in a number of ways – both are GM full-size pickups equipped for off-roading adventures, with the GM T1 body-on-frame platform under the skin. However, while these two vehicles do share quite a bit, there are numerous mechanical differences worth pointing out as well. Now, GM Authority is looking into the specific mechanical differences between the 2022 GMC Sierra AT4 and 2022 Chevy Silverado Trail Boss.

2022 GMC Sierra AT4 vs. 2022 Chevy Silverado Trail Boss: Mechanical Differences

From the off, we need to mention that there are two trim levels for the 2022 Chevy Silverado Trail Boss, including the Silverado Custom Trail Boss and the Silverado LT Trail Boss, with certain features offered on one of the trim levels, but not the other.

2022 GMC Sierra AT4 vs. 2022 Chevy Silverado Trail Boss: Mechanical Differences Chevy Trail Boss stickerWith that covered, let’s take a closer look at the mechanical differences between the 2022 GMC Sierra AT4 and 2022 Chevy Silverado Trail Boss, starting with the drivetrain. Under the hood, the 2022 GMC Sierra AT4 is equipped as standard with the 3.0L I6 LM2 turbodiesel Duramax, which is rated at 277 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque. By contrast, the Silverado Custom Trail Boss and Silverado LT Trail Boss are both equipped as standard with the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine, rated at 310 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque.

The other two engines to mention include the naturally aspirated 5.3L V8 L84, rated at 355 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque, and offered as optional on the Silverado Trail Boss models, but not the GMC Sierra AT4. Finally, there’s the naturally aspirated 6.2L V8 L87 gasoline engine, rated at 420 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque, and offered as an optional upgrade for both GMC Sierra AT4 and Chevy Silverado LT Trail Boss models.

What to look for when buying a used vehicle

What to look for when buying a used vehicle

Are you in the market for a used vehicle?  What should you look for?  No one wants to get ripped off-but how can you feel good about buying a pre-owned car or truck?

What to look for when buying a used vehicle Used Nissan Altima for sale at Ron Westphal Chevrolet
Used Nissan Altima for sale at Ron Westphal Chevrolet

Well, the dealer you choose has a lot to do with it.  At Ron Westphal Chevrolet, every used vehicle we sell has passed a complete service safety inspection.  No matter how new or how old the used vehicle may be, you can rest assured it has been thoroughly inspected.

If you’re in the market for a used vehicle, don’t hesitate to call our Customer Care Team at 630-898-9630.

GM Certified vehicles have to pass a strict 172 point vehicle inspection.  And, because they are guaranteed to be cream-of-the-crop, they automatically come with a GM-backed extended warranty at no extra cost to you.  So GM Certified vehicles are kind of a no-brainer.  But what if you are looking at something older that doesn’t qualify to be a GM Certified vehicle.  (GM certified vehicles must be within 5 years of the current model year and under 75,000 miles.)

Every vehicle we sell at Ron Westphal Chevrolet has been inspected prior to sale.  Even the older ones.  Even the high-mile ones.  We won’t sell a vehicle if it’s not safe.  We go through each and every vehicle to make sure they are going to be dependable and safe.  That means we may install new brakes, batteries, and tires before we offer a vehicle for sale.

What to look for when buying a used vehicle
What to look for when buying a used vehicle. Did the dealer inspect the vehicle?

You are welcome to request a service history on every used car prior to purchase.  We will be able to tell you exactly what we have done to the vehicle since it has been in our possession.  In addition, we will provide you with a current auto-check history report.  And, of course, you are welcome to take your potential vehicle to a mechanic off-site.  (You must be min 25 years old w/full-coverage insurance.)  Overnight test drives are also available.

The bottom line is we don’t want to sell you a bad car any more than you want to buy one.  Our reputation is on the line so we are going to make sure the vehicle you buy from us is a good one!

What do we do with the vehicles that don’t pass our inspection?  Maybe the car’s frame is bent, or the transmission slips sometimes, the air conditioning doesn’t work etc.  Well, those cars get wholesaled to other dealers and wholesalers.  We won’t sell them here.

Thanks for reading about  What to look for when buying a used vehicle.

suburban yukon and yukon xl Sales Update

The range of GM SUVs commanded the top two spots in the mainstream full-size SUV segment during the third quarter of 2021. As the Chevy Tahoe and Suburban continued to hold their first place position, the GMC Yukon family pushed the Ford Expedition down to third place during the quarter, a circumstance that hasn’t taken place in at least five years. This noteworthy accomplishment in a very lucrative segment is good news for The General and its shareholders.

Looking for a full-size SUV?  Call Ron Westphal Chevrolet’s Customer Care Team.  We’ll be happy to let you know what we have in stock and when our next vehicle shipment is due.  Feel free to visit our website too!

Cumulative Tahoe and Suburban sales totaled 33,869 units, comprised of 24,202 units of the Tahoe and 9,667 units of the Suburban. The results give Chevy a 46 percent segment share.

Joint sales of the GMC Yukon and GMC Yukon XL totaled 17,428 units, up 24 percent year-over-year. The results give GMC a segment share of 24 percent, enabling Big Red to displace the Ford Expedition family for a second place rank.

Speaking of the Ford Expedition, it missed a second place finish by only 732 units during the quarter, taking 23 percent segment share. Note that Expedition sales figures include those of the regular-length Expedition (a Tahoe competitor) and those of the extended-length Expedition XL (a Suburban competitor), as does the GMC Yukon (Yukon and Yukon XL) while Tahoe, Suburban, Yukon and Yukon XL sales are reported separately.

Taking into account the Tahoe, Suburban, and both Yukon models, GM saw sales rise 15 percent to 51,297 units for a domineering 70 percent segment share during the quarter.

The Chevy Tahoe received a complete overhaul (re-engineering and redesign) of the flagship SUV for the 2021 model year, debuting the Tahoe nameplate’s fifth generation. The Tahoe’s extended-length variant, the 2021 Chevy Suburban, was similarly overhauled for the nameplate’s 12th generation.

Both models feature the most interior space in the full-size SUV class, exclusive technologies and features, and the best driving dynamics in the full-size segment. This was achieved through a complete transformation of Chevrolet’s and GMC’s full-size SUVs, combining the strongest aspects of the Bow Tie’s full-size body-on-frame architecture with entirely new systems tailored to the needs of today’s SUV drivers and passengers. Noteworthy changes include the introduction of the Z71, RST, and High Country trim levels.

Built on the same GM T1 platform, the GMC Yukon range – comprised of the regular-length Yukon and extended-length Yukon XL – similarly received a complete overhaul, representing the model’s fifth generation. The 2021 GMC Yukon lineup enjoys the same improvements mentioned above for Chevrolet, while adding a more upscale Denali model and the first-ever Yukon AT4.

The former features a range-exclusive interior while the latter takes Yukon into the premium off-road space never occupied prior to its introduction.

It’s worth noting that full-size SUVs are extremely lucrative products for General Motors, so much so that the automaker allocated scarcely-available microchips to the vehicles while choosing to pause production of other, less profitable models. In fact, the GM Arlington plant where the Tahoe, Suburban, Yukon and Yukon XL are made, is one of the only GM plants worldwide to not be idled during the ongoing semiconductor shortage.

Corvette Production Halted

Production of the 2022 Corvette Stingray has been put on pause for at least a week after major tornadoes ripped through Kentucky and caused damage to the GM Bowling Green Assembly plant.

“We can confirm that the fire that took place as a result of the tornado activity at Bowling Green Assembly plant early Saturday morning (December 11th) has caused damage to the facility, including the roof and an employee entrance. The small number of employees that were onsite are all safe,” said Communications Manager at the Bowling Green Assembly Plant, Rachel Bagshaw, in a statement sent to GM Authority.

“Maintaining a safe work environment for plant employees is our top priority. Therefore, we are cancelling production on first and second shift the week of December 13th as our trained teams work to get tooling, equipment, and the facility space up to standard,” she added.

The GM Bowling Green Assembly plant employs 1,200 hourly workers and 180 salaried workers. Hourly workers there are represented by UAW Local 2164.

In a letter sent to plant employees Sunday, UAW Local 2164 Shop Chairman Jason Watson said the plant was “in the path of the widespread devastation and damage,” and that his team was undertaking “preliminary tasks,” at the facility to assess the damage. He also said there were a small number of employees in the plant when the tornado hit, all of whom were marked safe.

Sales of the C8 Corvette Stingray have been strong this year, with GM delivering 24,748 units through the first nine months of the year. Demand has also outpaced supply, with Chevy’s director of car and crossover marketing, Tony Johnson, admitting earlier this year that the automaker was “not even close” to meeting the overwhelming demand for the vehicle.

The 2022 Corvette Stingray entered production at the GM Bowling Green Assembly plant on September 6th. The 2022 model year introduced minor changes to the mid-engine sports car, including three new exterior colors, alterations to the 6.2L LT2 V8 engine for emissions-related improvements and the addition of a new IMSA GTLM Championship C8.R Edition package, among more.

We’ll provide an update on the production situation at Bowling Green Assembly once more information is available.

Chevy Silverado E

Chevy Silverado E

General Motors will launch production of the upcoming all-electric Chevy Silverado E early in the 2023 calendar year. Production will take place at the recently reopened GM Factory Zero factory in Michigan, previously known as Detroit-Hamtramck, which will also produce the GMC Hummer EV off-roader.

Looking for a Silverado?  Call Ron Westphal Chevrolet’s Customer Care Team at 630-898-9630 or visit us online.

Per a recent report from Reuters, General Motors Executive Vice President Doug Parks confirmed the production timeframe of the upcoming Chevy Silverado E during a recent investor conference. Parks also indicated that the Chevy Silverado E will will be followed by several other GM electric vehicles throughout the 2023 calendar year, including the Chevy Silverado E’s corporate cousin, the GMC Sierra E pickup truck.

The Chevy Silverado E is slated for a debut at the Consumer Electronics Show early next month during a keynote presentation delivered by General Motors CEO Mary Barra. Specs include a full ground-up design geared specifically for an all-electric powertrain, with GM’s Ultium battery technology and GM’s Ultium electric motor technology onboard for motivation. Range-per-charge is expected to be around 400 miles.

Additionally, the Chevy Silverado E will offer four-wheel steering, which will give the truck greater agility and a tighter turning radius at low speeds, plus improved handling and stability at higher speeds. The four-wheel steering system will also enhance the pickup’s trailering dynamics.

Further features confirmed thus far include available 24-inch wheels, coinciding with a statement made by GM design chief Michael Simcoe in 2019 that the automaker was moving towards larger wheel diameters on its production vehicles, including 24 inches 26 inches.

Up top, the Chevy Silverado E will feature an available fixed-glass roof, a first for GM’s full-size pickup nameplate. In addition to providing more ambient lighting in the cabin, the roof will also enhance visibility and provide greater headroom. The cabin will also come equipped with a huge infotainment screen on the dash.

Both fleet and retail versions of the Chevy Silverado E will be offered.
