What Is a Trim Level?

The process of buying a new car can be overwhelming, especially when you don’t know too much about the industry or the products, like what is a trim level. Our Richard Karr Buick GMC website arms you with research about all of the vehicles we have in our inventory, which is a good place to start.

But even then, you might find yourself asking questions like, “What does torque mean, and how much do I need?” or “What is a trim level?” The staff at our dealership will be happy to help you with questions just like these when you stop by, but we thought we’d take care of one for you now: What is a trim level?

Simply stated, trim levels help us offer different features on the same car, truck, or SUV. There might be some cool features, like all-wheel drive or remote start, that someone in a cool climate might want, and other features, like a more powerful engine or off-road suspension, that someone who enjoys performance driving might want.

The base trim level of a model will have the most basic features and will come at the cheapest price. As you go up the ladder of trim levels, you will see newer, more advanced features — related to technology, safety, performance, and convenience — added; in some cases, they might replace a feature on a lower trim. The price for these higher trims will also increase.
