These Buick Cars Have Black and White Driving Dynamics

black and whiteThere are two more levels or areas of interest we would like to examine when it comes to the Buick cars in Thunder Bay and how they differ and remain the same in the Regal and LaCrosse lineups for 2015.  We already looked at exterior, interior and under the hood stuff, now we move on, as promised, to features and technology.

As far as equipment on these new and used Buick Cars in Thunder Bay, you will not see or hear anyone talking about much discrepancy.  Why you should buy one of these Buick cars over the other will most definitely not lie in a difference here.  “When it comes to equipment, neither the LaCrosse nor the Regal boasts a huge advantage over the other. In fact, both sedans offer almost exactly the same level of available equipment, ranging from a Bose audio system to the same available safety equipment, the same infotainment system and similar luxury conveniences…”  Things like a heated steering wheel and ventilated seats are options available for both new Buick car…all wheel drive as well.  The LaCrosse does charge more for the added stuff, though, given it is a bigger, more expensive car to begin with.

What will it be like to drive these cars?  What are the differences in your driving experience at your local Buick Car Dealer in Ontario?  This is where they differ by leaps and bounds.  “Despite similar styling and equipment, the Regal is pitched as more of a sport sedan — and when you climb behind the wheel, it shows.”  You will get a lot of power and acceleration here and a sharply tuned suspension.  The Buick LaCrosse is designed as a full-size sedan.  This is also apparent.  Here you get comfort which trumps the sporty drive.  Stop by your Thunder Bay New and Used Buick Car Dealership and decide for yourself which one best suits you.

Wi Fi Hotspots for Your Family in Their GMC Trucks of Thunder Bay

Wi-Fi hotspotHere is our second part on the subject of something really new and exciting coming soon to your local GMC truck dealerships in Canada and the U.S.  “GMC vehicles equipped with 4G LTE will allow passengers to stay connected on the go by browsing the Internet, downloading movies, playing games or sending email. With an antenna more powerful than those in smartphones, this technology also offers improved access to existing OnStar safety and security services, the most comprehensive in-vehicle safety and connectivity system available.”

Let’s take some time to examine what that looks like for your own family.  Can you see the benefit the same way I can?  I see Elmo downloading for the toddler and no one else has to listen because he is, of course listening with his headphones on.  I see my husband playing his online word games and the eight year old listening to his favorite KidsBop on his tablet with excellent signal quality.  I am driving while my brother watches his HBO movies, streaming from his tablet and no one is bothering anyone.  Best of all, when it’s time to turn it all off and have some family time, searching the billboards for each consecutive letter of the alphabet, we will all be in such a great mood having spent our own personal free time perusing the roads of Canada in our GMC trucks while exploring our electronics as we each see fit.

“This technology is a great feature for all of our customers,” said Duncan Aldred, U.S. vice president of Buick and GMC. “From those who use their Sierra or Yukon as a mobile office, to the families taking trips in any of our vehicles, they can enjoy the benefits of 4G LTE for work or play.” How do you see your family benefiting from the Wi Fi hotspot and 4G LTE connectivity in the new GMC trucks of Thunder Bay?

Same and Different Under the Hood for These Buick Cars

similar babiesWe talked at length about two of the more popular new and used Buick Cars in Thunder Bay that are rather similar vehicles.  Wishing to help you see some of the differences in these two cars, we pointed out the design differences on the inside and outside in our previous post.  Now, let’s move onto the mechanics and talk about differences in how they are working under the hood, shall we?

There is a size difference, consistent with the external dimension differences in these two Buick Cars from Thunder Bay ON.  Auto Trader writes, “The LaCrosse and Regal continue to emphasize their size difference when you look under the hood. Although both sedans offer two engines, only the LaCrosse offers an available V6, while the Regal instead makes do with two 4-cylinder engine choices.”  They are both really considered ample in the power department when reading critics’ opinions and many online reviews.  On behalf of your Dominion Motors Buick Car Dealership we would deem either or both of them to be of sufficient power despite their engine differences.  However, the difference exists all the same, and here is how it looks:

Standard on the Regal is a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder, which touts 259 horsepower, 295 lb-ft of torque and fuel economy ratings as high as 21 miles per gallon in the city and 30 mpg on the highway. Drivers interested in better fuel economy can instead opt for an eAssist 2.4-liter 4-cylinder, which uses mild hybrid technology to offer 182 hp and up to 25 mpg city/36 mpg hwy.  On the Buick Cars in the LaCrosse family, you will see a standard eAssist 4 cylinder with the same power as the Regal and the same fuel economy figures as well…once again highlighting similarity rather than differences!  They are both fabulous cars from your Buick Car Sales of Thunder Bay.  Read more in the following post to discover similarities and differences in technology and features.
