Delta Leasing, a company based in Prudhoe Bay, Alaska that provides professional commercial leasing services has extended its contract with GMC by ordering a fresh batch of 50 2015 Sierra 2500’s. Delta, established in 2002, counts on more than 400 GMC Sierras every day to meet their needs.
Delta chooses GMC because of the Sierra’s exterior design, comfort level, and especially its toughness and ability to take off-road, harsh dirt road, and cold weather abuse. Because Prudhoe Bay is located 250 miles north of the Arctic Circle, in one of the northernmost parts of Alaska, some of the trucks never even see a paved road and are subjected to extreme temperatures and extremely rough terrain. Delta needs a truck that it can count on to keep its clients safe from temperatures that are frequently sub-zero, where a reliable vehicle could mean the difference between life and death. The reliability of the GMC Sierra also helps reduce down-time and repair costs for Delta.
One of Delta’s favorite features of the GMC Sierra is GM’s OnStar connectivity service, which allows a vehicle’s owner to control various functions on the vehicle via their smartphone. Delta says that the most common problem they run into is people locking their keys in their trucks. While many other vehicles would have to wait for a locksmith to come rescue their keys, the GMC Sierra allows owners to unlock the truck from their smartphone, getting people safely back on the job.
