The Avenir Buick Car Trim

changeWriting today, on behalf of your Thunder Bay Buick Car Dealership, we will be discussing the fourth Buick car around the globe to receive the Avenir trim.  “With the addition of the Regal Avenir — the fourth Buick globally to get an Avenir trim in less than a year — the momentum behind Buick’s highest expression of luxury continues to grow.” In the fall of last year, the Buick Enclave Avenir was introduced and began outselling all other Avenir trim levels.  They also made up over 30 percent of total sales in Canada.

According to your Thunder Bay Buick Car Dealer in Ontario research, “Customers continue to signal that they want more from Buick, and Avenir sales are exceeding our expectations,” said Mark Alger, national marketing manager, Buick in Canada. “Buick customers value the exclusive styling and premium features Avenir provides and we are excited to extend the highest expression of luxury to Regal.”

Some of the people most thrilled over the Avenir trim in the Buick car world are those who traditionally buy Sportback.  “More Regal Sportback buyers are choosing the top trim level than ever, and within the midsize car segment demand is growing for more premium vehicles.”  In fact, the following stats are found online and support the previous statement: Over the previous four years, demand has risen over 80 percent for midsize cars priced from $30,000 to $40,000, reflecting the increasing customer demand for more luxury, convenience and safety without compromising overall value in the new cars that they drive.  We want to spend more time in the posts that follow on behalf of your Buick car dealer in Thunder Bay, discussing new Buick cars in Canada and this new trim level in particular.  Please check back for the next post about the Buick cars in the Avenir trim this year to follow their inevitable success in the Thunder Bay market.

Confidence Behind the Wheel of These GMC Trucks

confidenceWhen it comes to new cars and new GMC Trucks in Thunder Bay, what do we feel, from our research, and also our personal experience, are the top contributors to the delivery of confidence behind the wheel?  Ride and handling made the top of the list for confidence delivered by new GMC trucks in Ontario.

How great a new truck’s ride and handling is will be primarily based on the presence or absence of features surrounding it.  The GMC Sierra Denali’s exclusive Adaptive Ride Control offers premium ride comfort with better road isolation and control than ever at your local new GMC Truck Dealership in Thunder Bay. “Through real-time monitoring of the road and driver inputs while accelerating, cornering, braking and trailering, the system’s active dampers can be individually adjusted every 2 milliseconds, based on sensor feedback.”

Moving past that, another great feature that contributes to the confidence of the new GMC Trucks in Thunder Bay ON, is the all-new Traction Select System which allows drivers to choose from preset available drive modes that have been tailored for different terrain or weather conditions.

Buick Car Design Computer Models

car designThe Buick cars in Thunder Bay are typically our subject for discussion here and last post entered into the realm of design specific conversation.  When it comes to designing a car, we must understand that much goes in behind the scenes.  “To give the car it’s distinctive look, Buick and Opal created computer models to help them manage all of the proportions, the way the car looks from a distance, and how it looks among other vehicles (which they also generate as computer models).”  In addition to computer generated help during the design process, good old fashioned clay models are also sometimes constructed for a tactile approach to the design process.

Remember, too, that designing cars, such as your Buick cars for sale in Thunder Bay ON, is a total process, not a one and done concept.  “One example had to do with how the TourX has a lift gate that integrates into the tail light – the version we see went through versions that led to a more emotional response. Another interesting design aesthetic – while the TourX is technically the same height as the Regal sedan, it looks much lower to the ground.”

The computer generated model proves especially helpful in practically all aspects of new car design.  “This visualization technique – creating models that are placed into virtual settings – goes beyond the design lab, though. Boniface says his team holds ‘clinics’ with prospective buyers to show them the computer models, asking them to pick their favorites.”  Stats are also utilized, according to our finding while researching new car designs on behalf of your Buick car dealerships in Ontario.  “This is a data-intensive exercise as well. The clinic participants provide feedback and then the rankings are weighted based on whether that person might have indicated they prefer a certain brand or have a bias toward a more conventional look.”
