Increase Buick Cars Availabililty

AvailabilityIt was reported and found in our initial research surrounding this month’s post, that Buick has consistently sold more than 200,000 cars and SUVs in the U.S. each year for the past five years. That’s stronger performance than either of its closest rivals, according to outside sources.  Also a hot market for Buick Cars is China.  The Buick Envision, according to your Buick Dealer in Thunder Bay ON, is just such a car.  New on the scene, the Buick Envision in Thunder Bay ON, sells more cars in China than in the United States and Canada combined.

And while the Buick Envision was first imported to our shores in the 2016 model year, it’s been on sale in China since 2014, so it was clearly time for an update. Therefore, we explore this Buick Car in Canada today for further details worth sharing with you. The mechanical overview tells us that there are little differences under the hood for the 2019 Buick Envision, as it doesn’t stray too far from the current model. And that will definitely be true for the roughly 70 percent of Buick Envision buyers in Canada who stay with the standard powertrain.

The 2.5-liter four-cylinder and six-speed automatic, as well as its optional all-wheel-drive system, are going to be the same offerings in the Buick Cars Thunder Bay ON lineup for 2019. “However, those willing to step up and spend more to have the optional 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder will be rewarded with a 35 lb-ft of torque bump, to 295. Buick was able to increase that torque output because the engine is now paired to GM’s excellent nine-speed automatic. The horsepower remains at 252, just like last year.”  One way in which to increase the popularity of this Buick Envision and or any other Buick cars in Thunder Bay, over China or other countries oversees, is to show an increase in demand. That is done by simple interest and increased purchases.  If you want to see more Buick options, such as the Buick Enclave in your local Thunder Bay Dealerships in Canada, then request them and buy them.

Sometimes the Entry Level is Enough in These Buick SUVs

appleWe want to take a little time to discuss the 2018 Buick Enclave from a specific, trim level perspective on behalf of your Thunder Bay Buick Car Dealership in Canada.  First, we know the Premium trim level is the most highly recommended way to go.  This is really for all of the features available that make these Buick cars the most luxurious as they can be.  Here is what Edmunds says on this trim subject, “To take advantage of the luxury positioning of this new Enclave, we recommend the Enclave Premium . It includes low-speed forward collision mitigation, driver seat and mirror position memory, and an upgraded Bose audio system. Front-wheel drive is standard, but get the optional all-wheel drive if you live in snow country.”  We are here to note, however, that there are other trim level options and configurations that may be better for you.

Your Thunder Bay Buick Car sales in ON denote that it isn’t always the premium levels that sell the most Buick cars and the 2018 Buick Enclave is available in four trims. They all use the same engine with the following specs: 3.6-liter V6 (302 hp, 260 lb-ft) and a nine-speed automatic transmission. The entry level Buick Enclave is available only in front-wheel drive; the remaining trims are available in front- or all-wheel drive. The Essence features additional safety and comfort tech, while the Premium trim adds more luxury and safety amenities. At the top, the Avenir promises tech, safety and comfort features on par with what’s offered in the best luxury crossovers. All Buick Enclave SUVS have seating for up to seven people.

When searching for your next Buick car, remember that sometimes the base trim level is enough.  After all, all manufacturers give a different level of standard features in their entry level trim and these Buick cars have quite a bit from the get go.  “Even in base form, the Enclave comes with features that make it competitive in the three-row SUV segment. It comes standard with 18-inch wheels, LED headlights, rear parking sensors, keyless entry and ignition, remote engine start, three-zone automatic climate control, power-adjustable front seats with heating, adjustable second-row captain’s chairs and 60/40-split folding third-row seats. Standard in-car technology includes an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a rearview camera, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, OnStar communications (with 4G LTE and Wi-Fi hotspot), USB ports (two in front and four for rear passengers), and a six-speaker sound system with satellite radio.”

Buick SUV Details for 2018

2018Originally debuting for the 2008 model year, the first-generation Buick Enclave stood out in the three-row crossover SUV segment for its roomy interior and smooth and quiet ride, these are true facts that can be found in the past research done on these Buick SUVs at your local Thunder Bay Buick Car Dealer in Canada. The redesigned 2018 Buick Enclave pushes to continue that trend while, at the same time, they wish to raise the bar and shoot higher in the area of styling and technology.

These new Buick SUVs in Canada are also equipped with a more powerful 3.6-liter V6 engine this year (302 horsepower and 260 pound-feet), the Enclave should be notably quicker, especially since this year’s model weighs hundreds of pounds less for 2018.   The size increased externally as well, in these new SUVS for sale at your Thunder Bay Buick Car Dealer.  “The 2018 Enclave is slightly longer than last year and offers additional legroom for the second-row and third-row passengers. Maximum cargo space is less than before, but there’s still a generous 97.6 cubic feet with the second and third rows folded down.”

Most reviews call these new Buick SUVs an extra appealing choice in new Buick vehicles.  Edmunds says the following, “We expect the 2018 Enclave will be an appealing choice for a premium three-row crossover SUV, but we won’t know for sure until we get a chance to test one ourselves.”  The upcoming Buick SUV in the Enclave lineup is also positioned in the luxury category and in order to get the full feel for this luxury, you will likely want to purchase the Premium trim level, according to your Thunder Bay Buick Car Dealer in Canada.
