Employee Appreciation Day at DeVoe Buick GMC!

DeVoe would not be around today if weren’t for the all the incredibly friendly, knowledgeable and committed people that come in to work here every single day. Whether you’re talking about sales, service, finance or parts, we really do have the best employees around! It’s only because of them that we’ve been around for so long. That’s why we like to have a day every year where we can show all the employees how much we appreciate them.

Employee Appreciation Day was just last week here at DeVoe Buick GMC. Employees were treated to a nice BBQ lunch and entertainment from Cool Runnings. It was a ton of fun! Check out the pictures below:

 

GMC Canyon Steps Up Child Safety

As America demands more efficient vehicles, GMC has stepped up its game in its small pick-up, the Canyon. Safety does not have to be sacrificed in order to have smaller, more efficient trucks – and GMC hits the mark with their new technology that allows child seats to be installed in the rear space-saving seats.

Awkward under-sized jump seats have been found in the back seat of trucks for years. Barely big enough for a small child, the seats could never safely support a child seat or car seat.  GMC, with recommendations from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, has come up with an incredibly simple solution: the back seat’s headrests can be removed and inserted into the leading edge of the bottom of the seat, effectively making the seat wider and able to support a child seat.

With safety a major priority for families, the previous Canyons were not ideal for anyone with children who require a child seat, alienating young families altogether. The newest Canyon is perfect for a small family, combining safety, comfort, utility, and efficiency into one compact truck.

Buick Makes Rearview Camera Standard for All 2015 Models

This seems like common sense to us here at DeVoe Buick GMC, but the University of Michigan’s Transportation Research Institute went ahead and “proved” it anyhow: vehicles that feature rearview backup cameras make people safer. These backup cameras help to reduce the risk of “backing crashes,” protecting drivers and passengers alike in vehicles equipped with these cameras.

Buick has taken this knowledge to heart, making rearview cameras—traditionally just a convenient option—a standard feature on all new 2015 Buick models. “Rear backup cameras have become like power windows and air conditioning,” Karl Brauer, senior analyst for Kelley Blue Book, said. “While they’re not standard on every car, yet, it’s rare to operate a new vehicle without them. The increased confidence these cameras provide make them a must-have feature.”

Go back and pay close attention to the word “yet” in Brauer’s quote. Buick has removed that “yet” from their brand, proving the brand to be one of the most progressive brands in the auto industry, luxury or otherwise.

Get an Ultra Luxurious Package for 2014 Buick LaCrosse

Buick has announced a brand new, Ultra Luxurious Package for the 2014 LaCrosse, which introduces a new level of luxury rarely seen in entry-level premium vehicles.

It offers a color palette commonly seen in luxury goods—sangria and ebony—that no other competing sedan currently offers. The interior front and rear seating feature rich, soft semi-aniline leather upholstery dyed in deep sangria color, accentuated by the ebony-colored sueded headliner and door pillars.

Another luxury feature is the authentic Shadow Tamo Ash wood trim on the doors, dash, and center console. Tamo Ash is a unique high-grade species often used in musical instruments. Its biggest appeal is the movement and contrast in its dark veins that vary widely between samples, which means that no two Ultra Luxury Interiors are alike.

“From the grade, pattern, texture and color of the leather to the layering of natural wood, metal and stitching, this interior moves beyond convention,” said Ven Lai, Buick lead creative designer for color and trim. “This application is tailored specifically to the LaCrosse and its customers, but we’re exploring all avenues for where it could take Buick.”
