OnStar RemoteLink App Reaches User Milestone

OnStar RemoteLink AppHave you ever wished you could check your car’s tire pressure and oil level with the click of a button? Well, there’s an app for that. The OnStar RemoteLink App provides OnStar users the ability to connect to their vehicles wherever they are and now, the app has surpassed the one million active users mark, making it one popular app.

“Over the past few years, RemoteLink has become one of the more popular OnStar service offerings,” said Terry Inch, chief operating officer of OnStar. “Customers see the value in having a remote connection to their vehicle, which comes in handy during the summer and winter months, or when planning a trip.”

Some features included in the OnStar RemoteLink App include the ability to lock and unlock car doors; starting the vehicle remotely; and, providing vehicle information with Get Vehicle Info. RemoteLink is available on all major smartphone platforms—iOS, Android, Blackberry, and Windows—but is most commonly used on iOS devices. Now, RemoteLink even has a service called Vehicle Locate, which shows where the vehicle is located on a map.

GMC Sierra 3500 Named Ultimate One-Ton Truck

It’s the ultimate question among truck-lovers: which truck is the best? Ask anyone with any kind of experience with trucks and you’ll get a pretty biased answer about their personal favorite truck.

But what happens when you objectively compare all of the one-ton trucks on the market to determine the ultimate champion? That’s exactly what PickupTruck.com set out to do.

They created a tough set of 19 tests and paired it with judged criteria to determine what we here at Crawford Buick GMC already knew: the GMC Sierra 3500 is the Ultimate One-Ton Truck.

The Sierra won the competition by a clear margin by having the smoothest and most comfortable ride and the best fuel economy, even when towing a 20,000 pound trailer from Las Vegas to Denver. However, the interior with its multimedia interface along with the 8-inch navigation screen pushed the Sierra over the edge to ensure the victory.

The Sierra managed to beat out all of its competitors even while being the least expensive truck in the competition.

2014 Sierra 1500 Remains Capable

Do you use your truck for work? Do you need to be able to haul some serious weight? If you answered “Yes” to either of these questions, we have just the truck for you! According to the new industry-wide SAE J2807 calculations, the Sierra has the ability to tow up to 12,000 lbs. This says a lot about the Sierra’s ability to tow. Before the new calculations were introduced, most trucks had a higher max tow rating. After the new calculations, most trucks lost some serious poundage. The Sierra 1500, however, was one of the only trucks that did not.

The 12,000 lb. rating is specifically for the double cab two-wheel drive, 6.2-liter V8 version of the Sierra 1500. It is also important to note that this engine is the most powerful available in the light-duty segment and offers an astounding 420-horsepower and 460-lb-ft of torque. It also features EcoTec3 technology making it more efficient while keeping up with performance needs.

If you would like to see how the Sierra 1500 can help you on your next big job, stop by our El Paso Buick and GMC dealership! Check out our Business Elite page to see other helpful options.

2014 Sierra and Sierra Denali Among First Pickups to Receive Five-Star Safety Score

2014 SierraBeginning with the 2011 model year, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) changed its New Car Assessment Program to include new requirements for vehicles to pass into order to receive the highest possible five-star overall safety rating. Since this new rating system was implemented, no pickup truck has ever attained this five-star score…until now. The all-new 2014 GMC Sierra and Sierra Denali (along with their Chevy Silverado cousin) are the first pickup trucks to receive a five-star Overall Vehicle Score for safety from the NHTSA.

Redesigned inside and out for the 2014 model year, the GMC Sierra mixes rugged styling cues with proven power and dependability. The advanced technologies and tech specs on the 2014 Sierra make it the best Sierra yet. Standard safety features on the base model include daytime running lights, StabiliTrak stability control system, tire pressure monitoring system, 4-wheel antilock disc brakes, and dual-stage frontal and seat mounted air bags for driver and passenger. Additional available safety features include a rear vision camera, lane departure warning, forward collision alert, and safety alert seats that vibrate pulses to warn the driver of potential traffic danger.

“Safety is as important to truck buyers as it is to car buyers,” said Gay Kent, GM general director of Vehicle Safety and Crashworthiness. “Silverado and Sierra set a benchmark for pickup truck safety by offering a full array of advanced features designed to protect occupants before, during, and after a collision.”

At Crawford Buick GMC, your safety is very important to us. So let us help you get into a top safety rated 2014 GMC Sierra pickup today. Visit our El Paso dealership in person or online at www.crawfordbuickgmc.com.
