Fun Summer Activities

Getting out and having fun in the summer weather may start in June, but the fun keeps on rolling until later August. That’s a lot of time to fill which means you might run short on fun activities for friends and family. Fortunately, you’re not alone in your summer adventures. We here at Richard Karr Motors know of some fun summer activities to take part in this season!

Take a Road Trip

Packing up your truck or SUV and hitting the open road opens up the potential for a fantastic memory-making road trip. Even singles can hit the road and experience something new that they may have never seen or heard of before. There are plenty of interesting places around the United States that are best explored in an off-road-capable truck, like the GMC Canyon. Best of all, a truck can double as a bed with just a few accessories!

Have a Picnic

Whether you’re alone or with friends and family, having a picnic at a local park is a great way to spend a summer day. Pack a basket with your favorite foods, like sandwiches and cookies, grab a blanket, and set out for a wonderful day under the summer sun.

Sit Outside

Most people are fully aware of just how hot it can get under the summer sun. Sometimes it can feel too hot to engage in any activity. Fortunately, just sitting around outside is a great way to enjoy the day until the temperature drops in the evening.

2018 GMC Yukon Denali Updates

The Denali line has long been world-renowned as one of the most luxurious offerings in the industry thanks to its use of high-end premium materials, bold stance, and aggressive engine. Now the 2018 GMC Yukon Denali is raising the bar with a new look and some near gear under the hood.

Style comes standard in all Denali models and the GMC Yukon is one of the first to get a refreshed look. A new thin-and-thick front grille offers a more aggressive design and looks similar to the Terrain and Acadia. The Yukon Denali grille also comes equipped with automatic shutters to help reduce drag.

The 2018 GMC Yukon Denali is the third model under the General Motors umbrella to feature the new 10-speed automatic transmission. That new transmission comes mated to a standard 6.2-liter V8 engine that delivers an impressive 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. Official fuel economy figures aren’t out just yet, but General Motors expects the new 10-speed automatic to deliver better numbers than the outgoing eight-speed automatic.

Of course, no Denali is complete without a high-end interior and the Yukon Denali is no exception. The 2018 model features Mastique Ash real wood throughout the cabin. Drivers will also enjoy three rows of leather-lined seating and incredible towing capability.

We here at Richard Karr Motors are pumped to get behind the wheel of the new 2018 GMC Yukon Denali!
