2020 GMC Sierra 1500 | Naples, FL

The 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 is bursting with exciting updates, including expanded powertrain options, new technology, and more features for business owners and other professionals than ever.

The new Sierra 1500 will make the 3.0-liter Duramax® turbo-diesel engine available for the full model year, and it will be an option on the CarbonPro™ Editions, which previously only featured the 6.2-liter V8 engine. The 5.3-liter V8 also gets an update — it can now be paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission.

GMC has made a range of updates to the trailering updates as well, with available Enhanced ProGrade Trailering with 15 camera views and segment-first transparent trailer view. Additionally, the in-vehicle Trailering App lets users create trailer profiles through their myGMC mobile app, as well as monitor the fuel level of a trailer, turn on the air conditioning, and more.

Also among the 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 updates are new technologies like Adaptive Cruise Control — Camera, which uses a camera mounted above the rearview mirror to keep track of the distance to the car directly ahead. Plus, the Sierra can now support SiriusXM™ with 360L.

The Sierra 1500 will now offer the Elevation trim in Crew Cab configuration, and new trailer tow mirrors are available.

The 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 will be available soon at DeVoe Buick GMC. Visit us and learn when you can expect to take one for a test drive.

Redesigned 2020 GMC Acadia Adds New Engine, AT4 Trim

The redesigned 2020 GMC Acadia promises to be one of the most stylish and well-rounded vehicles in its class. Set to arrive at DeVoe Buick GMC this coming fall, the new Acadia gets a sharper look inside and out, a new trim, and an all-new engine

“The 2020 Acadia is stylish, functional and capable with more of the smart convenience and connectivity features that customers rely on every day,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of Global GMC. “And with GMC’s signature refinement at its core, the new Acadia advances the brand’s commitment to offering premium vehicles for discerning crossover customers.”

The refreshed GMC Acadia will feature a new 2.0-liter Turbo engine standard for the SLT and Denali. This engine boasts a tripower valvetrain and dual-scroll technology to deliver optimal performance and efficiency. The venerable 2.5-liter inline four-cylinder and 3.6-liter V6 will both return to the lineup, and all three engines are now standard with a new nine-speed automatic transmission with Electronic Precision Shift control.

Perhaps the most exciting upgrade is the addition of the 2020 GMC Acadia AT4, which pairs the 310-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 with twin-clutch all-wheel drive. Primed for off-road adventure, the AT4 gets exclusive 17-inch wheels (or optional 20-inch wheels) wrapped in all-terrain tires.

And with a new, sharper face including standard LED lighting and C-shaped signature lighting, the redesigned 2020 GMC Acadia will have no trouble standing out from the crowd. Look for the new Acadia at DeVoe Buick GMC later this year.

2019 GMC Sierra Denali Takes Luxury to The Next Level

Even the best things can get better, which is evidenced with the impending launch of the all-new 2019 GMC Sierra Denali. The high-luxury trim at the top of the GMC Sierra 1500 range will add a number of exciting, segment-first features that make it even more appealing to those who demand luxury.

2019 GMC Sierra Denali

“GMC ignited the premium truck segment 17 years ago with the original launch of the Sierra Denali,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of Global GMC. “The next generation 2019 Sierra Denali establishes a new benchmark in capability and refinement. It exemplifies precision in every detail.”

Because the 2019 GMC Sierra Denali is a full-size pickup, it must be useful on a worksite. Fortunately, the new Sierra Denali is maybe the most functional truck GMC has ever made — it boasts an industry-first MultiPro™ Tailgate with six functions and positions; CarbonPro, the first-ever carbon fiber pickup box with best-in-class dent, scratch, and corrosion resistance; and segment-first features like Rear Camera Mirror and Multi-Color Head-Up Display.

As the Denali name implies, this will also be an exceptionally stylish truck. It will feature 22-inch Ultra Bright aluminum wheels, a larger and bolder face, and more a prominent DENALI nameplate on the tailgate that lets everyone know that you won’t settle for less.

The new 2019 GMC Sierra Denali is set to arrive this fall. For more information, stop into DeVoe Buick GMC around the time the leaves start turning and we’ll tell you how to get yours.

5 Movies with GMC Cars as Stars

The GMC brand is known for its capable but sophisticated lineup of SUVs and pickups. At DeVoe Buick GMC, we love seeing our favorite GMC vehicles on the road, but we also love to catch them on the big screen. Here are five movies with GMC cars as their star.

movies with GMC

The Notebook (2004)

This classic romance film was one of the first chances crowds had to fall in love with the handsome Ryan Gosling, but we have to assume that his 1935 GMC QB truck was part of the charm.

The Bridges of Madison County (1995)

A slightly newer GMC truck plays a role in this romance film when Clint Eastwood’s character drives a 1960 GMC 1500.

Aliens vs. Predator – Requiem (2007)

Thanks to this movie, it has been proven that the 2005 GMC Yukon XL is the perfect vehicle to take when you’re heading out to defeat the Predators and the Aliens.

Joe (2013)

This serious drama makes room for the 1997 GMC C-15, which helps to drive the plot, telling a story of young Gary and his new father-figure Joe.

Transformers (2007)

The Transformers franchise takes the opportunity to showcase many different manufacturers. You’ll spot plenty of GMC cars in these movies, like the GMC Topkick C4500 which turns into the Autobot Ironhide. We’re waiting for GMC to release this transformative feature as a standard for us to try, but until then we’ll have to settle for binge-watching Michael Bay’s Transformers series.

The 2018 Terrain Design: Breaking Barriers

GMC recently introduced the all-new 2018 Terrain, a stunning compact SUV that’s bound to turn some heads on the highway. This model comes with a number of added features and options, though most people can’t stop raving about the sleek new styling. Read on to learn more about the new 2018 Terrain design.

GMC has provided a list of new features for the 2018 model year, including a sculpted exterior, stronger design cues, and a refined fascia. Chrome trim adds appeal as well, while features like roof rails, LED lighting, and machined alloy wheels make this model truly stand out. Let’s not forget the wide, athletic stance that gives the Terrain a bold atmosphere.

“GMC’s strong growth over the past decade is due in large part to Terrain,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of global GMC Sales and Marketing. “The all-new Terrain builds on that success, leveraging GMC’s proven premium SUV experience to shake up the largest vehicle segment, with a strong blend of design, functionality and engineering excellence.”

Under the hood is your choice between three all-new turbocharged engines. One of these is a diesel, which offers impressive torque and fuel economy. The Terrain will come with a Denali version, like most GMC SUVs, and will feature intelligent interior touches including touchscreen infotainment, smartphone connectivity, and 4G LTE Wi-Fi. The new 2018 GMC Terrain is truly remarkable. We here at DeVoe Buick GMC can’t wait to see this new model in action.

Differences between the standard GMC Terrain and the Nightfall Edition include the addition of a gloss-black paint job and accents, such as a charcoal front grille with gloss-black surround, front and rear fascia accents, and outside mirrors—plus luggage rails painted to match. Additionally, the 18-inch aluminum wheels come with gloss-black spokes. The result is a compact SUV that’s been given an edgy, all-black makeover.

Pricing will be announced closer to the Terrain Nightfall Edition’s release this fall, when it joins the ranks of other special editions such as the Canyon Nightfall and Sierra All Terrain X. Last year, the Terrain enjoyed record sales, becoming GMC’s second-highest-selling vehicle behind the Sierra pickup truck.

GMC Subcompact Crossover Could Join Brand’s Lineup

The crossover segment has become wildly popular in the past year and is now considered the fastest-growing vehicle class in the automotive industry. With so much clamor surrounding one segment, just about every manufacturer has gotten in on the fun–except for General Motors’ truck sub-brand GMC.

Now, the brand’s president Duncan Aldred is reportedly pushing for a GMC subcompact crossover to help the company dip its feet into the segment.

“That segment has grown so fast,” Aldred said in an interview with Automotive News. “I keep telling everyone, ‘How can General Motors’ truck brand not be in the fastest-growing segment in the industry, an SUV segment?’”

The success of the crossover can be seen in another GM brand–Buick. The Buick Encore lead the brand to a 53% sales increase in just 2014 alone, attesting to the segment’s incredible popularity among car buyers. Duncan Aldred happens to also be in charge at Buick, so his experience in working with crossovers and the success they bring is firsthand.

A GMC subcompact crossover has not been confirmed to be in production, but with the president pushing for such a vehicle to join GMC’s lineup, consumers shouldn’t be surprised if one is on the way very soon.
