New Buick cars in Canada

globeSo, if you follow new cars of whichever type because you are an enthusiast, or perhaps you have nothing better to do, then you may notice that certain makes and models are released in specific parts of the world exclusively.  Sometimes it is actually frustrating when it is a car that you have your eyes and heart set on and it never quite makes it to your neck of the woods. We write on behalf of your Thunder Bay Buick Car Dealership in Ontario and recently followed news on the Buick Enspire, making its way into China.  These cars are not here or in Canada as of yet, so it is a great example of the above dilemma.

Why do certain automakers only release to certain geographic location around the globe?  Well Buick cars in Thunder Bay are a hit in Canada, but it is the honest reality that Buick cars are a bigger hit in China.  “It’s also bound for China, where Buick is big. That’s not to say that the Enspire—or something like it, perhaps the next-generation Encore?—wouldn’t have a future in the U.S., but its debut at a Chinese auto show first is telling.”

As far as the Buick car itself, despite the fact it is the first electric Buick car in Thunder Bay ON, it still carries some of the brand’s familiar shapes forward. The Buick Enspire at your local Buick car dealer in Thunder Bay in the future, has a hood and angles that look borrowed from the current Buick LaCrosse sedan, however, its grille and body sides are very new.  “The Enspire’s rear hatch borrows liberally from the Avenir concept from just a few years ago—and with good effect. The Enspire’s rear third is distinctive, even somewhat sporty.”  Your Thunder Bay Buick car dealer also notes that the inside looks like a cockpit and is more futuristic. See for yourself when these new Buick cars become available at your Buick car dealer in Thunder Bay ON.

Some GMC Truck Differences

luxuryWe left off in our previous post on behalf of your Thunder Bay GMC trucks in Canada, discussing the concept of luxury in our new pickup trucks on today’s market.  The fact is, the luxury model has caught up to the truck world and more and more enthusiasts are looking for just that.  “In our recent research on behalf of your Thunder Bay GMC Truck dealer, we found the following share-worthy quote, GMC, the upscale truck and SUV division of General Motors, is attacking that market. Trucks.com caught up with Stu Pierce, senior marketing manager for GMC trucks and full-size SUVs, to talk about the marketplace and where the brand fits in.”

The question was asked, “What’s happening at GMC these days?”  This is what we found:  We showed the new Sierra Denali in Detroit in early March, and the new Sierra AT4 debuted at the New York International Auto Show. The interesting thing about the AT4 is that it’s not just a new model on Sierra, but it’s actually an all new sub-brand that we’re going to offer across the complete GMC portfolio. Within two years, we’ll have an AT4 model across all GMC vehicle lines.  All of the above is being relayed on behalf of your GMC Truck sales in Thunder Bay ON in Canada.

What’s the main difference between the Sierra Denali and the Sierra AT4?  This is another common question you will find online and here amongst new GMC Truck consumers in Thunder Bay ON.  The following is true, “They’re both targeted for the premium end of the segment — consumers who want a truck with all the high levels of comfort, luxury, refinement and technology. The Denali is targeted more toward that premium end. The buyer may be looking for a little bit more chrome, more of a mainstream vehicle.”

Buick Enspire Electric Car

it's timeIn the world of efficient car driving, we are all scanning the horizon in search of the best way to get from point A to point B.  With new Buick cars in Thunder Bay, the same is true.  So, as we set out to research on behalf of your Buick car sales in Canada, we are looking for evidence of electric Buick cars coming your way, and that’s exactly what we found.  “Buick unveiled Tuesday an electric crossover SUV concept bound for the 2018 Beijing auto show with promise.”

Not yet available in the US or Canada, we can only hope that it won’t take long to make its way.  “In addition to 370 miles of range, the Buick Enspire concept can charge up to 80 percent in 40 minutes through fast and wireless charging. Its motors combine for 410 kilowatts (550 horsepower) of total output, and the SUV can sprint up to 60 mph in around four seconds.”

According to Buick, all the typical luxury car equipment is present in these new Buick cars for sale soon at your local Thunder Bay Buick car dealership: wood and leather, touchscreen for infotainment, and fast 5G internet connectivity too.  You are warned in many ways by many sources, as we found in our recent research, not to get your hopes up too high.  “But don’t run down to plunk real cash for the Enspire just yet: it’s a concept, and there are plenty of pie-in-the-sky-concept features there too.”  Also somewhat disappointing is the lack of information on the battery and its abilities.  This is a big deal in the electric car world as we all know.  “Buick is mum on battery specifics, and napkin math would lead us to believe that the Enspire’s 370-mile range would require a huge battery (at least 100 kwh), small footprint, remarkable efficiency, a forgiving European test cycle—or all of the above.”
