The all-new 2015 Canyon midsize pickup also will offer 4G LTE.”  So, with this new technology popping up the way it is, you ought to really put these new GMC trucks from Ontario Canada on your shopping list.  When the time is right for your family to go looking for your next new car or truck, give these GMC trucks a try and experience this awesome new technology first hand.

Two Buick Cars With Much Similarity

two similar looking kidsHave you been considering the purchase of a new Buick Car from Thunder Bay?  If so, you may want to read some of the following insight into the differences between the two most popular new Buick Cars in Canada:  The 2015 Buick LaCrosse and the 2015 Buick Regal.  Here are a couple generalizations found online from an article published on Auto Trader, really amplifying the need for answers since the differences are apparently not apparent at all.  “Both models are about the same size, and their prices are surprisingly similar too…”

We are going to start on the outside of these Buick Cars in Thunder Bay.  When peering at the exterior it is easy to get these two new Buick Cars confused.  “When the two sedans are next to each other, you’ll see some obvious differences, such as the LaCrosse’s larger size, the Regal’s unique door-panel design and the LaCrosse’s more pronounced rear wheel arches. But if you’re seeing the two cars separately, you may not notice those differences.”  Unless you are looking at them side by side, you will only really see similarities such as grille design, headlight and taillight styles that intermingle and very similar design profiles in terms of overall looks.  Auto Trader writer says, “Indeed, the shared design language is probably the main reason these two sedans are so frequently mistaken for one another.”

Moving inside these two new Thunder Bay Buick Cars, it is easier to start spotting more differences in these new Buick cars for sale at your Thunder Bay Dealer.  “One major reason is interior room, as the LaCrosse is larger than the Regal, especially when it comes to rear-seat legroom and hip room. The LaCrosse also touts more trunk space.”  The dash is way more elaborate and luxurious on the LaCrosse than in the Regal.  A lot of little details are the same inside, however.  “With that said, the two models do share some touches, such as a steering wheel, a shift lever and a few gauges and switches.”  Read the next post or two when we continue this very subject.

Oh So Much Techno in the New GMC Truck Lineup

new technologySo, the last post included a full description of some pretty great things being offered by GMC trucks this year in Thunder Bay ON.  The latest in infotainment systems for many of the new GMC Trucks offered in the sales department of your local new GMC truck dealership in Ontario involves an eight inch diagonal screen version offered on the GMC Canyon, GMC Yukon and GMC Sierra of Dominion Motors.

At the very beginning of the 2016 model year, these systems will be compatible only with Apple CarPlay.  On the seven inch screen in the GMC Sierra base models, you will see the availability of a truck that is compatible with Apple CarPlay as well as Android Auto.  But, don’t worry too much if you are an Android guy or gal.  It will only be a short matter of time before the eight inch screened trucks also get the ability to use the Android Auto system as well. It is all expected to take place within the same model year.

“Apple CarPlay takes the iPhone features customers want to access while driving and puts them on the vehicle’s display in a smart, simple manner. This allows drivers to make calls, send and receive messages and listen to music right from the touchscreen or by voice via Siri. Apple CarPlay-supported apps include Phone, Messages, Maps, Music and third-party audio apps.”  Don’t forget the Android Auto counterpart that will be able to be used on the GMC Trucks in Thunder Bay as well.  This interface is built around Google Maps, Google Now and the ability to talk to Google, along with an ever expanding audio and messaging application involving WhatsApp, Skype, Google Play Music, Spotify and podcast players as well.
