Road Trip Essentials to Pack into Your New GMC Before Hitting the Open Road

Last updated 7 years ago

Get behind the wheel of your new GMC and get ready to have the road trip of your life. Pack the car with the following essentials and cruise down the open road towards adventure.


No road trip is complete without a huge variety of music. You asked for the premium sound system in your car when you were at the new GMC dealership, and now is your time to use it to the extreme. Fill your MP3 player will some play lists that are suitable for driving and don’t be afraid to do some singing as you close the long distances.


There’s something about driving long distances that makes people a bit peckish. Buy a couple of bags of chips or crackers and pass them around the car. A water bottle is always a good idea, just don’t drink too much or you’ll have to stop more often to use the restroom. And don’t worry about the mess; just take the car in for some auto service after the trip and touch up the auto body paint while you’re there. Your car will once again look like it just rolled off of the new Buick dealership’s lot.


In the old days, a map was necessary for a successful road trip, but most modern luxury cars, including GMCs, have premium navigation systems built into the vehicle. Preprogram your system so your car already knows where you want to go and get ready for a smooth trip with no getting lost. If you don’t mind the occasional detour, however, then turn the system off for a while and explore.
