Impress Your Kids: Listen to Obscure Rock-n-Roll with SiriusXM on Intellilink

SiriusXM on Intellilink

Interior of the 2015 Buick Enclave

The refreshed 2015 Buick Enclave has heated steering wheels for those with chronically cold hands, as well as new color options for those needing extra flair in their lives. Perhaps most important to those who just need to rock out during their commute is the fact that Buick continues to deliver SiriusXM Satellite radio on the Intellilink infotainment system.

Satellite radio is one of those things that once you try it, you’re hooked. Who wouldn’t be with “channels and channels of commercial-free music, all your favorite sports, exclusive talk and entertainment, traffic, weather, travel and more”? With over 150 channels, what satellite radio gives you is choice. How many times have you listened to music or news on terrestrial radio, not because it was good, but because it was just slightly better than the other three stations available?

Pick up the 2015 Buick Enclave—outfitted with SiriusXM on Intellilink—and make use of its powerful navigation feature with the most updated traffic information. Or wrap your hands around the heated steering wheel, sit back and rock out to that obscure college rock that you’d never find on terrestrial radio.

Buick Avenir Concept Exemplifies Brand’s Global Reach

Buick Avenir ConceptBuick has looked into the crystal ball to its future, and the brand’s future looks a lot like the Buick Avenir Concept.

Introduced earlier this month at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, the Avenir concept brings a whole new level of passenger well-being and technology to the industry, along with a progressive design that will impress even the pickiest car buyers.

“Avenir embodies Buick design, which centers on effortless beauty and presence without pretense,” said Ed Welburn, vice president of General Motors Global Design. “It demonstrates the growing international reach of Buick and offers an exciting vision of where it can go.”

With a body that reflects premium sports proportions, while representing the typical Buick design cues, the Avenir makes a lasting impression. The concept car features personal seating for four, a next-generation direct-injection V6 engine, driver-recognition features that automatically sync infotainment preferences, and Buick’s popular OnStar 4G LTE with WiFi hotspot.

This combination of stunning style and sophisticated features has created a terrific car that we can only hope will enter production. Make sure you check back to DeVoe Buick GMC to see if the Buick brand decides to include the Avenir in its lineup.

Buick Cascada Debut Happening in Detroit

Buick Cascada debutWe’ve long been hearing rumors about a new convertible, possibly called the Cascada, coming to the Buick lineup. Now, word is the Buick Cascada debut is happening at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit this week.

Besides the fact that the new convertible has been on its way, we haven’t known much about it, even its official name. Cascada is what the car is called in Europe under the Opel name, but Buick could very well have given it a new name for its US sales. It is expected to maintain much of the same styling of its European cousin—and  we at DeVoe Buick GMC won’t mind that at all.

If you’re making the trek to Detroit for the show, keep in mind the Buick display will be in a new location this year. Instead of sticking with its General Motors counterparts, Buick is cozying up to its luxury rivals like Infiniti and Acura. If you see the new convertible, tell us what you think about it in the comments below.

What do you hope to see or learn from the highly-anticipated Buick Cascada debut?

Unearthing Incredible Acceleration: Vintage 1991 GMC Syclone Performance

1991 GMC Syclone PerformanceBelieve it or not, a 1991 GMC Syclone, the exotic car of pickups, was recently discovered and is set to go up for bidding. The Syclone is quite a throwback for us here at DeVoe Buick GMC, a tribute to quality GMC engineering and performance.

So what makes this old pickup truck so great? The 1991 GMC Syclone performance capability is truly incredible, even by today’s standards. Its 4.3-liter V6 was capable of 280 hp, and it can do zero-to-60 in four seconds. According to GM Authority, there were only 3000 ever produced, few of which have been unearthed.

“Oh, and about the best acceleration attainable from a vintage 90s-mobile outside of an exotic Italian or German import. Granted, sure, the GMC Syclone might not tow your boat to the lake. But it’s a super truck; ditch the boat, go driving instead,” said Aaron Birch, automotive writer and filmmaker.

This particular model is all-original with only 7,400 miles, AWD, and a console-shift automatic transmission. This relic is just one example of the performance which GMC is constantly striving for.
