A New Buick Encore

2017Just recently, in Canada, the Buick Cars lineup added a new creature for 2016.  “Buick today introduced the new 2017 Encore, strengthening the appeal of America’s most popular small SUV with more refined styling and new connectivity technology – including available Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.”  This new addition to the Buick Cars Thunder Bay ON lineup is one that we are particularly enthused about given the segment’s popularity here in Canada.  The quality that they added to these new Buick Encore is far surpassing the added technology which is also highly anticipated, as these new Buick Cars have more in the way of looks, design and style as well.

Here is the proof of such advancement, “A new front-end appearance and a new premium interior highlight the visual refinements, while Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are supported by a next-generation IntelliLink system featuring an 8-inch-diagonal color touch screen”.  Also on the feature front page for these new Buick Cars in Thunder Bay are the following:  Push-button start, keyless unlock via the exterior door handles and an 8-inch color touchscreen… all of which are highlights and additions to the standard feature list for this new Buick Car in Thunder Bay.

Here is a bit of information directly from the manufacturer, worth sharing here on behalf of your Buick Car Dealership in Thunder Bay, “The Buick Encore created the premium small SUV segment and remains the top choice for customers seeking premium features and dependability coupled with timeless design,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of Buick Sales, Service and Marketing. “In a rapidly evolving segment, the Encore continues to lead with smart, purposeful updates and a new level of technology-infused elegance and refinement.”  You can easily determine whether or not you agree with this assessment by dropping by your local new and used Buick Car Dealership and taking a new Buick Encore out for a spin today.

Extra Efficient With No Power Loss in These New Trucks

efficientOne last thing to discuss about the new GMC Trucks in the Sierra 1500 lineup involves the eight speed powertrain and the eAssist feature that these new trucks of Thunder Bay will soon have available to its customers.  The eAssist GMC Truck models also have great fuel efficiency with an EPA-estimated 14.4 L/100 km city – a 1.5 L/100km improvement.  A recent press release from the manufacturer states the following, “The combined estimate improves 0.8 L/100km to 13.0 L/100km. The 5.3L eAssist V8 delivers the same performance, towing and payload as the current 5.3L V8 engine.”  And so, it is really refreshing to know that the gain in efficiency causes no loss whatsoever in performance.  Not all new trucks can say that.

If this new feature is something you are interested in for your next new car, van, SUV, or GMC Truck in Thunder Bay, then you should know that the new eAssist powertrain is available in the Sierra SLT crew cab with the up-level Premium Plus package, a package that is also available with the standard 5.3L non- eAssist engine and the 6.2L V8 engine.

If you were to go with this particular new truck from Dominion Motors, you would be subject to gain a lot of other things as well, since the SLT Premium Plus package includes an extensive list of premium technologies and features, such as the following:  High-performance LED headlamps, LED taillamps and thin-profile LED foglamps, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility (subject to their terms, privacy statements and data plan rates, as well as a compatible smartphone), IntelliLink with navigation and 8-inch-diagonal color touch screen, Bose premium audio system, Wireless phone charging, Heated and vented leather-appointed seats, Heated steering wheel, Lane Keep Assist and Forward Collision Alert, IntelliBeam headlamps, Front and Rear Park Assist and Rear Vision camera.

Buick Cars Are Part of a Quality Lineup

qualityIf you are researching the next new or used car that you wish to purchase and you are like me, then quality is one overall trait worth looking for, but what defines quality?  It really sort of depends on who you are as to how you might define this concept.  Most of us agree that products are able to display quality, or not, when it comes to workmanship and actual product ability, but what about as a company or product lineup?  Is it important that the car you are seeking be a part of a quality team?  If this is something you are looking for, then you may wish to strongly consider a Buick Car from Thunder Bay.

If you consider a new Buick Car, as I have, then you will be backing a company of quality and the proof is in the record of sales, for starters, “Buick delivered nearly 1.2 million vehicles in China, the United States, Canada and Mexico in 2014, marking the second consecutive sales record for the most Buicks sold in a single year in the brand’s 111-year history.”

Going with a car dealership such as your Thunder Bay Buick Car Dealer in Ontario is smart and another example of how to stick with a quality example throughout the process.  Buick Cars is showing strength in quality across the board, too, not only in one country or another, “Strong growth in both China and North America resulted in global sales of 1,170,115 units, up 13.4 percent over 2013. China posted a 13.5 percent sales gain, while the U.S. delivered an 11.4 percent sales increase. Canada also saw strong sales growth, with a 31 percent increase over 2013. In the U.S., 42 percent of Buick buyers were new to the brand and to General Motors.”  If you think this new car might be right for you, we encourage you to stop by a local new or used Buick Car Dealership and take one or more of the new Buick Cars out for a spin soon.
