Details of the New Buick Envision Cars

We spent time previously in the past post or two discussing, on behalf of your Thunder Bay Buick cars, the ways in which Buick is listening to their current customers, tells us that they are interested in satisfying all that their consumers need and want in a new Buick car.  The Buick Envision is the latest subject of our writing and we will pass along the details of new things to point out to you regarding the newest model years.

New nine-speed automatic is present on the Buick cars in Thunder Bay.  2.0L turbo engine offers increased vehicle performance of 252 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. The engine and transmission updates produce 0-60 mph acceleration just under a half-second quicker than the 2018 model.  Engine stop/start deactivation switch, which is the first time we see this feature in a Buick car in North America.  There is also a single rate brake booster which is for improved overall brake performance and requires less effort according to the experts at your Thunder Bay Buick Service and Sales.

More than the above, we also see the flexibility to switch between Adaptive Cruise Control and conventional Cruise Control.  This is ideal for those of us interested in autonomous driving ability but still lack the desire to give up total control behind the wheel. These Thunder Bay New Buick cars in Ontario also have enhanced visibility on the rear vision cameras and improved hands-free microphone for better call quality and better voice recognition.  So, you can see, not all of these features on the new Buick Envision are entirely novel ideas or concepts, but rather improved to make them work smarter and more comprehensively.  They are also almost all features that were asked for by current Buick car consumers in Thunder Bay Canada.

Where Consumers Lead With GMC Trucks

new customersWe are on a quest to bring you the latest and most interesting, hopefully pertinent information of new GMC trucks in Thunder Bay on behalf of your Thunder Bay GMC Truck dealer in ON.  This just in, “Oshawa, Ontario (Tuesday, June 12, 2018) — GMC is expanding its premium Yukon line with the addition of two 2019 Graphite Editions.”  We will attempt to sum up the details regarding the above headline on behalf of your GMC trucks dealerships in Canada.

First off, the all-new Yukon Graphite Edition offers a darkened exterior appearance, while the Yukon Graphite Performance Edition adds vehicle performance upgrades. One is obviously for aesthetic purposes only, while the other has new features to look forward to when you shop your next new GMC Trucks in Canada.  It is also worth mentioning, for consumer expectation purposes, that the Graphite Editions are exclusively available on SLT trim vehicles and can be ordered on either Yukon or Yukon XL in both 2WD and 4WD configurations.

“The Yukon continues to lead the Canadian full-size SUV segment by providing premium features and a well-respected brand identity,” said Michael MacPhee, brand director, GMC In Canada. “The all-new Graphite Edition provides customers the opportunity to display distinct GMC style by building on the commanding road presence and inherent capabilities of the Yukon.”  There are many things we find our Thunder Bay GMC truck customers in search and need of when scoping out their next new truck. Hopefully this addition to the lineup will help satisfy some of those wants and needs in Thunder Bay Ontario.  In addition to the above, the Yukon graphite edition also adds 22 inch bright machined wheels with Carbon Flash Metallic pockets, black assist steps with gloss black accents, premium black chrome grille mesh insert and fog lamp surrounds, body-colour grille surround, black roof rails, gloss black beltline mouldings and additional black trim.  Once again, the consumers were consulted as is the case with many GMC trucks in the making.  The list of additions was compiled from consumer requests and this is where they led.
