Sumo Wrestler Byamba Is a GMC Precision Expert

These days, many auto makers are being extra creative in their advertising. GMC is no exception, as it has a new series of commercials called “Precisions Experts.”

In the new “GMC Precision Experts” commercial, a sumo wrestler explains his definition of precision. The sumo wrestler’s name is Ulambayar “Byamba” Byambajav, and he defines precision as the joining of form and function.

The combination of form and function makes an astonishing package, one which Byamba exemplifies. He also points out that the new 2016 Sierra 1500 Denali is a prime example of precision.

Both the GMC pickup and the sumo wrestler have an intense game face, which hints at the power each one has to offer. In addition, Byamba believes that precision is something that needs to happen within. He shows us that the interior of the Sierra 1500 is spacious, with room to relax as it blocks outside noise.

We at Crawford Buick GMC would not have thought of the similarities between a sumo wrestler and the GMC Sierra 1500 Denali, but precision expert Byamba makes some great points! Check out the video here and then come into Crawford Buick GMC to see real-life precision in the Sierra 1500 Denali.

GMC Named KBB Most Refined Brand in 2016 Brand Image Awards

GMC was named the KBB Most Refined Brand in the non-luxury market in the 2016 Brand Image Awards, announced by the website in late March.

Kelley Blue Book determines the winners of the Brand Image Awards based on data from customers who participate in KBB’s Strategic Insights’ Brand Watch study, which surveys more than 12,000 customers through the website. The study determines what factors make customers pick certain brands or vehicles, as well as what determines brand familiarity and loyalty.

GMC has received this award three years in a row, repeatedly receiving praise for its refined design and features while maintaining rugged performance and image. The luxury Denali badging is a big part of GMC’s win, which offers luxury without compromising GMC’s image.

In 2015, nearly a quarter of GMC sales were Denali vehicles, with the sub-brand alone outselling numerous luxury automakers. Since its introduction in 1999, more than 850,000 Denali vehicles have been sold in the US.

2015 Hennessey Supercharged GMC Denali Goes From 0 to 60 in 4.5 Seconds

Hennessey is at it again. The Texas-based performance engineering company known for packing insane amounts of horsepower into already-powerful cars, has created a 2015 Hennessey Supercharged GMC Denali that packs a serious punch.

Hennessey doesn’t discriminate, and has proven that even SUVs can get in on the horsepower war. Hennessey took a 2015 Yukon Denali equipped with a 6 viagra ordonnance.2-liter V8 and the HPE650 Supercharged Upgrade package, and added a 2.9-liter supercharger system. The supercharger system boosts the Denali’s already-powerful 420 horsepower engine to put out a ridiculous yet awesome 665 hp and 658 lb-ft of torque.

So what does all this power come down to? A Denali that can go from 0 to 60 in a measly 4.5 seconds, that’s what. That’s as fast as a 2014 Ford Mustang GT—an impressive feat to be sure. The Denali weighs 5,800 pounds, and isn’t exactly aerodynamic, if you know what we mean. Despite those logistics, the test driver in a video on digitaltrends.com launches the Denali from the start line and completes a quarter mile in just 13.1 seconds.

We think Digital Trends put it best when they called the supercharged Denali a 13-second quarter-mile mom-mobile. This Denali would certainly make school pick-up duty a bit more exciting.

Stop by Crawford Buick GMC to check out the powerful Denali. Though it might not be the supercharged version, we think you’ll be impressed at just how much power it packs.
