GMC Canyon & Sierra Earn KBB.com’s Best Resale Value Awards

Two GMC models have been recognized in KBB.com’s Best Resale Value Awards, including the GMC Canyon and Sierra. This is the second consecutive time the two models are ranked in the top 10.

“A vehicle’s resale value is of critical importance, because a vehicle with high resale value will typically be less expensive to own over time than a similar vehicle with poorer resale value,” said Jack R. Nerad, executive editorial director of Kelley Blue Book.

The 2016 GMC Canyon was ranked 3rd in the Best Resale Value Awards, with a projected resale value of 70.7% after three years and of 59.5% after five years. The 2016 GMC Sierra was projected to retain 57% of its value after three years and 48% after five. KBB.com’s projections are derived from current vehicle and sales data, market conditions, competition within segments, and expectations of the future economy.

Buick’s Annual Sales Surpass 1.2 Million Vehicles for 3rd Consecutive Time

For the third consecutive year, Buick set a new global sales record on sales of more than 1.2 million vehicles.

Last year’s record was 1,170,115 total vehicles, which was surpassed in mid-December thanks to record sales in China and strong crossover performances in the United States.

In the US, crossover sales increased by 3% across the industry. A whopping 40% of all new vehicles sold in the country are crossovers. The automaker has been tapping into that expanding market with capable vehicles like the Encore and Enclave, which together accounted for 60% of the Buick’s annual sales in the US. In fact, the Encore has been setting record sales for the last 23 straight months.

Sales are expected to continue rising throughout 2016 at Crawford Buick GMC. We anticipate  the arrival of the Cascada convertible and the new 2017 LaCrosse, as well as the all-new Envision compact crossover that has been all the rage in China.
