The crossover segment is currently one of the most rapidly growing segments in the car industry, making it no surprise that many carmakers are increasing the production rate of their crossover vehicles. General Motors is no exception to this and has recently invested $63 million in a Lansing Lambda CUV plant expansion. This plant builds some of GM’s most popular crossovers, such as the Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia, and Buick Enclave.
“UAW members have a proud history of building quality vehicles in the Lansing Delta Township plant and they look forward to the changes and upgrades made possible by what workers and management are able to achieve by working together,” said UAW Vice President Cindy Estrada, who directs the union’s national GM Department. “The investment in the plant and in UAW Local 602 members means workers will have an updated environment in which they can continue delivering quality workmanship for years to come.”

This new expansion will increase the plant’s floor space by roughly 263,000 square feet. Of that space, 181,000 will be dedicated for an updated body shop with cutting-edge robots. The rest of the space will be delegated to a paint show and an area for general assembly.
With this new space, it’s possible that GM might introduce a new crossover to its lineup. Make sure you check back to DeVoe Buick GMC later to see if there has been a new addition!
What would you do with a 2014 GMC Acadia? Would it change your life? GMC had the opportunity to gift one boy’s mom with the crossover in hopes that it would do just that.
Tyson Wheelock, a 13-year-old boy who has already been faced with tough decisions at his young age, is one of seven stories featured in USA Network’s “NFL Characters Unite” documentary presented by GMC.
Green Bay Packers running back Randall Cobb spent a day with the teen, mentoring and encouraging him to make wise decisions and to be a leader rather than giving in to peer pressure. For Wheelock, we at DeVoe Buick GMC are sure the day was life-changing and one he won’t soon forget.
Wheelock’s mom also experienced a life-changing moment as she accepted the keys to the 2014 GMC Acadia.
“On behalf of GMC partnership with USA Network and Characters Unite, we’d like to provide Nicole with her own Never Say Never moment,” said Sandra Moore, GMC’s director of Advertising and Sales Promotion. “I’m thrilled to hand off these keys to a 2014 GMC Acadia that is now yours. We hope this will help you continue to persevere and strive to achieve the best for your family.”
Now that’s what we call a gift worth giving.
What would you do if someone handed you the keys to a brand new 2014 GMC Acadia free of charge?
The 2013 GMC Acadia’s standard rear vision camera system uses a camera in the liftgate to give the driver the ability to see exactly what’s going on behind the car. Also displayed on the safety screen are the convenience and safety warnings of the available Cross Traffic alert and standard ultrasonic rear park assist. Check out the video below for more info on the 2013 Acadia’s safety features:
The 2013 GMC Acadia comes standard with color-touch radio, featuring a 7-inch hi-resolution customizable touch screen, and available Intellilink, GMC’s voice controlled infotainment system. This means that with the all new Acadia, you have the ability to stay connected to the world, even when you’re on the road. With nothing more than the sound of your voice, you can bring up turn-by-turn navigation, control 140 SiriusXM stations, and call anyone in your contact list – all hands free – standard for three months.
