Buick Verano’s Paint Job Is More Efficient Than You Think

Did you know that process of painting a vehicle takes as much energy as it does to power a normal US home for nine weeks? It’s ok if you answered “no”; most people outside of the auto industry wouldn’t know either. Saving energy is a prime goal of major companies like GM, so in order to make the painting process more energy-efficient, the Orion Assembly plant, home to the Verano, created a new way to do it.

After implementing the new paint process called “three-wet,” the Buick Verano’s paint job is now more efficient than ever. The new process layers three continuous coats of paint on top of one another. Before, there was a baking process needed in between the first and second layer, which wasted energy. The original process used 2.5 megawatt hours of energy, whereas the new process only uses 1.

Innovative strategies like the “three-wet” painting process are always being developed by GM employees and that’s how the brand continues to be an industry leader—especially in reducing environmental impact.

Buick’s New Standard Feature for 2015

New Standard Feature for 2015
2014 Buick Regal Available at Crawford Buick GMC!

Safety and technology come together for the 2015 model year by making the rearview camera standard equipment on all Buick models. Currently rearview cameras are offered on many of Buick’s top trim levels, but we are proud to announce that they will be standard on ALL Buicks for 2015 and moving forward.

Karl Brauer, Senior Analyst for KBB says, “Rear backup cameras have become more like power windows and air conditioning. While they’re not standard on every car, yet, it’s rare to operate a new vehicle without them.” We couldn’t agree with KBB more and expect that rearview cameras will become standard throughout more and more brands because of their ability to keep drivers safe while out on the road.

The rearview camera isn’t the only new standard safety feature for 2015, all Buick models will also feature Side Blind Zone Alert, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Departure Warning, and Forward Collision Alert. It is also important to note that all GM models come with OnStar’s award-winning telecommunications system.

Whether you watch the game to see some of the best athletes in the world duke it out on the football field or for the commercials and advertisements, you are sure to be entertained from start to finish.

As we watch one of the greatest nights in sports take place, eyes will undoubtedly be focused on Peyton Manning as he tries to lead the Denver Broncos to victory. The 38-year old Quarterback may be late in his career, but he consistently dominates the field –  even after several surgical procedures and time off.

What does an all-star NFL Super Bowl-bound quarterback like Manning drive to the football field week after week? None other than a Buick! That’s right: Manning is not only a spokesman for the brand, he’s also a dedicated Buick driver. In fact, Manning picks up two of his teammates, Jacob Tamme and Eric Decker, and carpools in his Buick to start each game day off right.

Buick has grown to be one of the best luxury auto brands with endless technologies and interior comfort It’s not the car your grandparents used to own…!
