2013 GMC Terrain and Terrain Denali Named Consumers Digest Best Buys

GMC TerrainHow do you determine if a vehicle is considered a ‘best buy’? For over 50 years, Consumers Digest has been scrutinizing new vehicles and handing out their annual recommendations for automotive best buys. Consumers Digest defines a ‘best buy’ as “vehicles that deliver the best value for the money” after evaluating and analyzing new vehicles on specific attributes. We are happy to say the 2013 Terrain and 2013 Terrain Denali have both earned a designation as a 2013 Consumers Digest Best Buy in their respective categories.

With impressive fuel economy ratings and quiet high-quality interior, the 2013 GMC Terrain is a favorite among affordable compact SUVs. The Denali trim is new for 2013 and features upgraded luxury amenities and high-tech options. The 2013 Terrain is ideal choice for a family hauler with its smooth ride and numerous safety features. This compact SUV was recognized as a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Features on the Denali trim include a sunroof, leather steering wheel with controls, navigation, remote engine start, back-up camera, premium sound system, climate control, and an onboard hands-free communications system.

2014 GMC Sierra: Power, Efficiency, Luxury

2014 GMC SierraThere is a lot to love about the all-new 2014 GMC Sierra.  With three available engines, increased fuel efficiency, and the most standard features ever available for the full-sizepickup, the 2014 Sierra is, in our humble opinion, the best one yet!

Featuring all aluminum blocks and heads, the 2014 GMC Sierra will house either a 4.3L V6, a 5.3L V8, or a 6.2L V8.  All three engines are new to 2014, based on GMC’s EcoTec3 platform.  The V6 is noted to be built to handle the demands of a truck, but offering the fuel efficiency one can expect in newer V6 cars.

Perhaps the best new feature of these engines is the Active Fuel Management system, which cuts combustion on four cylinders during light driving to increase fuel efficiency.  Standard across the board this year is a new six-speed automatic transmission, replacing the previous four -speed to help with, you guessed it, fuel efficiency.

To match their new lineup of engines, the folks at GMC gave the 2014 Sierra an interior that feels more like a luxury sedan than a truck, but with more purpose and function fit for a truck.  We like that.  Standing out is a 4.2-inch in-dash display with all the features you’d expect: trip computer, navigation, radio and audio options.  Pair that with the available 8-inch touch screen and you’ve got yourself a truck with enough tech to match your home set-up.  There are also compartments spacious enough for your laptop with five USB ports and four 12-volt outlets in case you really need to get things done on the go.

A release date has not yet been confirmed, but we expect the announcement at next month’s Detroit Auto Show to be a summer release.  Whatever the release date, Crawford Buick GMC strives to be your first choice for the new 2014 GMC Sierra.

Production is Underway on 2013 GMC Sierra HD Bi-Fuel Pickup Truck

Vortec engineWhile the typical heavy duty truck driver may not have a lot in common with a hybrid car driver, we can all appreciate fewer trips to the gas station for fill ups. To help extend your miles on the road, GMC has begun production on the new 2013 Sierra 2500 HD bi-fuel pickup truck, a truck with an engine capable of running on gasoline or compressed natural gas.

The Sierra 2500 HD, along with its counterpart, the Silverado HD, features a Vortec 6.0-liter engine that can seamlessly switch between the gasoline and compressed natural gas system without affecting performance. With both fuel types combines, the Sierra HD is able to travel a range of 650 miles before the need to refuel arises.

“Customers are choosing our bi-fuel trucks because they provide the same high level of GM truck performance and versatility but can also help businesses control their fuel costs and reduce their carbon footprint,” said Ed Peper, General Motors U.S. vice president of Fleet and Commercial Sales.

As is the case with the original Sierra pickup line, the Sierra 2500 HD bi-fuel pickup in available in a variety of configurations. Drivers can choose between standard and long-box, as well as have the choice of either two-or-four wheel drive in the extended cab models.

Buick and GMC Set to Release Nine New Models Over 12 Month Span

GMCGM announced recently nine new and refreshed Buick and GMC models will be introduced by the end of 2013. This announcement comes during Buick and GMC’s third year of consecutive retail gains and consistent sales momentum. The new Buick Encore, Buick Regal, GMC Yukon, and GMC Sierra are among the new and redesigned models being released soon.

In addition to the introduction of these new models, General Motors also plans to offer the luxury Denali trim on four of GMC’s upcoming vehicles. The 2013 Buick Verano and 2013 GMC Terrain are two of the newly designed models now available at Crawford Buick GMC.

General Motors is planning on re-introducing the GMC Canyon to the automotive market this year as well. This mid-sized pickup was discontinued when GMC’s Louisiana factory was shut down. The all-new Canyon will be a sibling to the Chevrolet Colorado, a popular compact pickup.

“We’re not only selling more vehicles, we’re bringing new customers to the Buick and GMC showroom,” explained Brian Sweeney, vice president of Buick and GMC Sales and Service. “Both brands report more than 40 percent conquest sales. Buick was the only automotive brand in the United States to reduce the average age of its buyer during the past five years, and GMC continues to attract more female buyers and- with Denali vehicles- more import and luxury owners.”
