Have Yourself an Encore Christmas

Many of us are traveling great distances this holiday season.  Today my family is coming in from Duluth to celebrate with us at my grandma’s house.  My cousin recent newlywed and in my opinion in the running for husband of the year, just purchased his wife a new car for Christmas. He told us she was very specific on what kind of car she wanted.  She wanted a small crossover, but one with all the bells a whistles.  The car they chose was the Buick Encore.

After much searching a test driving, my cousin chose the Encore because it is a luxury SUV without the giant size.  He drives a full size truck and they wanted something that got great fuel economy but was also easy to park down town in the city.  The interior is filled with premium materials like optional leather seats, wood trim, and heated steering.  The steering wheel also controls Intellilink which is a hands free system that controls your smartphone, Pandora, and SiriusXM.  It can also control your available navigation system too.  So now you can drive safely without having to take your eyes off the road.

The exterior is surrounded by chrome accents and available 18 inch chrome wheels with aluminum standard. The engineers designed the exterior to be both stylish and more efficient.  The average fuel efficiency is 25 city and 33 highway mpg.  Making this one of the most fuel efficient crossovers on the market.  The power behind this little crossover is a 1.4 liter Ecotec 138-hp turbocharged engine with variable valve timing. All wheel drive is also available which is great for this time of year.

So maybe your significant other didn’t get you a new car for Christmas, there is still the New Year.  Go see your local Ontario Buick Cars dealer and have yourself a merry little Christmas.

The Perfect Small SUV

The new GMC Terrain is a small SUV that seats five passengers and has a wonderful luxury feel without the luxury price.  With all wheel drive available and great fuel efficiency, this is the perfect SUV for you.

The interior is filled with classy high quality surfaces.  Heated front seats, Pioneer radio system and ambient lighting are some of the options available. A seven inch touch screen comes standard along with a review camera to make parking super easy.  The interior is also very roomy and feels much larger than a small to midsize SUV. There is also lots of cargo space in the back. The interior of the Terrain definitely sets it apart and a head of the competition.

The exterior of the GMC Terrain shows strong features like the muscular fender flares. It is a sharp looking SUV with an “athletic stance.” 17 inch aluminum wheels come standard with 18 and 19 inch available depending on model. Projector beam head lamps also come standard. Probably one of my favorite available features is the programmable power lift gate.  As a busy mom who usually has her hands full, this feature is awesome!

This is a GMC truck, so of course it comes with a powerful 3.6 liter V6 engine with 301 horsepower. It can do 0 to 60 in 6.7 seconds. Even with all wheel drive available, the Terrain still get great gas mileage at an estimated EPA of 29 highway. With a four wheel independent suspension, the Terrain has a smooth ride.  While this may be classified as a GMC truck, it feels like you’re driving a car.

So if you are looking for a midsize crossover that drives like a car but has the power and room of a large SUV, then the Terrain is probably the vehicle for you.  Talk to you Ontario GMC Trucks dealer today to see what this “luxury” crossover has to offer.
