Diving Into Depth With the Buick Verano

deep divePerusing the internet and thinking back to all of the Buick cars that we have covered here in depth, on behalf of your Thunder Bay Buick car sales and service in Canada, it occurs to me that it has been awhile since the Buick Verano has been in the spotlight.  So, today, we refocus our eyes on this luscious little compact four-door sedan, for sale in Canada.  The Buick Verano in Thunder Bay provides a surprisingly stylish blend of technology and performance for its segment – borrowing from Buick’s higher-priced models for some of its awesome features, the Buick Veran is privy to QuietTuning (cabin noise reduction), OnStar with 4G and Wi-Fi hotspot, IntelliLink system and many other premium details.

When you set your sights on the Thunder Bay Buick Verano, you have your choice of five different models.  They are as follows:  the base Verano, Convenience 1, Convenience 2, Leather and Turbo. We plan to cover, here in this post, what each of the above versions of the Thunder Bay Buick Verano will offer you as a Buick car driver.  “Starting with the Convenience group, side blind zone alert and numerous other crash-avoidance technologies are standard safety features. The Verano is equipped with a choice of two four-cylinders: a standard Ecotec 2.4-litre and an available Ecotec 2.0-litre turbo. The 180-horsepower 2.4-litre comes with direct-injection, dual-overhead camshafts and variable valve timing. The performance-oriented Ecotec 2.0-litre turbo delivers 250 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque, providing on-demand power comparable to a V6, but with greater fuel efficiency. A six-speed automatic transmission with Driver Shift Control is standard for both; a six-speed manual is available with the turbo engine.”

Stay tuned for more information in the posts to follow, regarding the expected longevity and future existence of these Buick Verano. As it has been recently reported that they are in jeopardy.  “According to an Automotive News report, two sources within General Motors say the Verano won’t be renewed for another generation in the U.S.  This is despite the fact that on sale in China now is the second generation Buick Verano.  Only time will tell whether or not these cares will remain.

Surprising GMC Truck Features

surpriseWe can and do like to look at new and used GMC trucks for sale at your Thunder Bay GMC truck Dealership in Ontario.  The one thing we find is that there are often several extra details we miss in our writing due to time and space constraints. For this reason, today, we will elaborate more fully on our recent write up surrounding the GMC Sierra Trucks coming in 2019 with the AT4 trim or level of ability.  We discussed the basics last post.  Here, we are excited to go into further depth.

The GMC Sierra Truck lineup in Canada with the AT4 designation comes standard with the Sierra’s new MultiPro Tailgate, which more or less redefines what a tailgate can do, according to reviews online. “With a fold-out portion inset into the regular tailgate, the tailgate can be used like a step or table, and can make cargo easier to access or to prevent it from slopping around. It’s easy to operate and even has lights in the steps.”  In terms of looks, you will see something totally different in this AT4 Sierra than other GMC Sierra Trucks in Thunder Bay ON.  “…with black chrome finish on the fog lamp bezels, fender surround and grille insert, body-color grille surround, door handles and bumper, red vertical recovery hooks and unique interior trim accents.”

Pop the hood next and we find that on these new GMC Trucks for sale in Thunder Bay, the standard engine is a 5.3-litre V8 that made 355 horsepower last year and can run on as little as one cylinder in the all new GMC Sierra AT4. Optional are a 6.2L V8 and a new, 3.0L inline-six turbodiesel, with output expected at 450 lb.-ft. of torque. The 6.2L V8 and 3.0L diesel will pair with a 10-speed automatic transmission; the 5.3 is expected to get an eight-speed. Last, but not least, the bed is worth focusing on indeed.  “A carbon-fibre bed — not a bed liner, but a bed made entirely of carbon fibre to reduce weight and provide excellent scratch and dent resistance — is also an option.”  Hop over to your new GMC Trucks Dealer in Thunder Bay for even more enticing details surrounding these new trucks in Canada.

Some of the Latest On Buick Cars

factsIn our recent discussions regarding some of the newest Buick cars in Thunder Bay ON, we brushed on several points surrounding the Buick Envision.  We want to drive the Buick cars that matter to us before we actually go into much depth about the ratings and reviews, but sometimes that isn’t possible and so we rely upon what others have to say.  We didn’t get a chance to sample the 2.5-liter Envision, but the upgraded turbocharged four-cylinder and new nine-speed automatic are excellent.

The acceleration is described and felt as being brisk and capable of practically annihilating the tires if not for the all wheel drive in place for these awesome new Buick cars for sale in Thunder Bay.  Buick says the powertrain modifications drop almost a half-second from the 0-60-mph times. That said, we think it is much ado about nothing, given the excellence that these new Buick cars exude.

So, what is it that the average Buick Car buyer is looking for the most?  Do we know?  I will say that it is likely related to the interior of the car being as roomy as possible and also the fact that they definitely want a quiet and comfortable ride out of their Thunder Bay Buick Cars in Canada.  The newest Buick Envision definitely delivers all three of these.  A few other key points mentioned in an article online regarding these new Buick cars are as follows, “The isolation from the outside world is impressive. And the nine-speed helps the engine shuffle along at a calm 1,800 rpm at 70 mph…the Envision’s ride was supple. On the tightest roads, at moderate speeds, the Envision felt planted thanks to the 19-inch tires and that smart all-wheel-drive system.”  If anything constructive criticism related were to be added here, it would pertain to the definite benefit these cars could receive by the addition of a sports mode.  If pushed hard enough on certain terrain, these new cars could use one.  However, most Buick car drivers would never find the need.
