We’ve heard the story before. You came to DeVoe Buick GMC for your scheduled test drive of that Buick you’ve had your eye on for the past few months.
Unfortunately, it’s been one of those days: you were late to pick up the kids from summer camp, which also meant you were late to her doctor’s appointment and his swim practice. Of course, that made you 20 minutes late for your test drive appointment and your mind is everywhere but focused on the luxurious vehicle you now get to drive for only 40 minutes before you have to retrace your steps and pick up the kids.
While it doesn’t take long to fall in love with a Buick, the automaker recognizes that it helps to be able to spend more time with the vehicle, especially when that time is relatively free of stress and you can enjoy driving. That’s why the 24-hour test drive program not only allows you to drive through your everyday routine during that 24 hours; it also provides participants with advice on reducing stress and experiencing the happiness that comes from driving a Buick.
Exclusive online content is available to promote a happy driving experience, including a recipe for a custom in-car fragrance, basic yoga exercises for a relaxing ride, and more.
Go ahead. Forget about your almost-missed test drive and add the Buick 24-Hours of Happiness Test Drive to your schedule as soon as possible.
It has recently come to our attention that Buick filed applications to add a Sport Touring trademark on the Regal and LaCrosse models. We’re excited to see what’s about to happen with the new models; two new options sound great to us!
GM Inside News first broke the information and reported that both trademarks were dated April 27th. They were filed specifically for the Regal and LaCrosse, giving us hope that we’ll soon see a new trim or special edition.
The current Buick Regal is available in four trim levels and the LaCrosse in five. The Regal GS is one of the most powerful vehicles in the lineup. If a Sport Touring edition makes its way into the lineup, it has the potential to take Regal and LaCrosse to the next level of power and performance.
If you’re interested in learning more about the current Buick lineup, or the potential of the Sport Touring, come visit DeVoe Buick GMC.
Buick and GMC enjoyed their best November performances since the early 2000s, with Buick sales rising 13.8 percent and GMC sales rising 31.1 percent, marking the latter’s 10th consecutive month of year-over-year sales gains.
While numerous vehicles helped Buick achieve its best November in more than ten years, it was one standout vehicle that made it happen for GMC—the new, heavy-duty 2015 Sierra.
With sales of 22,458, the Sierra was up 57 percent for the month, marking its best November ever and helping GMC sell a total of 43,854 trucks.
Over at Buick, customers were drawn to the LaCrosse, Regal, and Verano, with sales increasing 53 percent, 32 percent, and 22.5 percent, respectively. The vehicle that made the biggest impact was the Encore SUV, which continued to bring new customers to Buick and enjoyed a 55.7 percent rise in sales.

Come to DeVoe Buick GMC to find out for yourself just why Buick and GMC November sales are at their best since the early 2000s!
The 2015 Buick Regal sedan has been praised by the government for its safety. In fact, the Buick Regal five-star safety rating was recently announced by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA)—the arm of the government concerned with vehicle safety.
This rating is based on three different tests: a frontal crash test, in which the Regal scored four stars; a side crash test, which awarded the Regal five stars; and a rollover crash test, which gained another four stars for the Regal.
This rating is for both the front-wheel and all-wheel-drive models of the Buick Regal.
The 2015 Buick Regal comes standard with a rearview camera, six airbags, stability control, traction control, and antilock brakes. Optional features include lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, forward collision alert, and side blind zone alert.
The 2015 Buick Regal is already on dealer lots, and we are very excited at DeVoe Buick GMC to be able to offer you a top five-star safety rated vehicle.
While other automakers such as BMW and Mercedes-Benz may appear to be the best when it comes to luxury, Consumer Reports says that they have some stiff competition. Consumer Reports even went as far as saying, “the latest Buick Regal is about the equal of much more expensive [brands].”
Here at DeVoe Buick GMC, we couldn’t agree more that the 2014 Regal offers the power, performance, and luxury that you would expect from its German competitors. The all-new Regal is, however, able to offer everything at an affordable price which is what really sets it apart from the others.
Drivers everywhere are happy that Buick has decided to go back to its roots by offering sporty luxury. Buicks aren’t just your grandma’s grocery-getter anymore. When it comes to performance the Regal beat out the Volvo S60, tied the Mercedes-Benz C250, and came within a point of the class leader – the BMW 328i.
If you would like to know more about how the 2014 Buick Regal stacks up against its competition, stop by our Naples, Florida dealership and test drive one for yourself.
We love it when car reviewers from big organizations get behind the wheel of cars we sell to see what they think. Most of the time we see nothing but glowing reviews! And a glowing review is exactly what we got from the New York Times earlier this month on the 2014 Buick Regal.
Mr. Tom Voelk had this to say about the new and improved Regal after his extended test drive:
“The Regal’s handsome lines and capable sport sedan moves are what interest (my son). The car — sold in Europe as the Opel Insignia — is also quiet, comfortable and, at $38,270 as tested, stuffed with technology that was science fiction in the ‘60s.”
So it’s loaded with technology, looks cool, is quiet and comfortable, and is appealing to a wide range of age groups? Awesome!
whether you are looking for a nice luxury car as you start your career, or you’re just getting settled into retirement, the 2014 Buick Regal deserves a good hard look. Come take one for a test drive of your own at DeVoe Buick GMC in Naples today!

To be honest, we’re not 100% sure how the engineers over at Buick were able to pull off what they did with the 2014 Buick Regal. See, the new 2.0L Turbo that comes standard in the 2014 Regal produces 18 percent more horsepower and 13 percent more torque in comparison to the 2013 Regal Turbo. And on top of that, the new Regal Turbo gets 3 more miles per gallon in the city compared to the 2013 Regal Turbo.
Now we understand that might be a little confusing, but to say it simply, the new Buick Regal has somehow added more power without sacrificing MPG. Pretty cool, right?
A Buick press release gives a little more info on the new 2014 Regal, “The new Regal sport sedan also features refreshed exterior and interior styling. It now comes standard with next-generation IntelliLink connectivity including eight-inch color touch display, leather-appointed seating surfaces with heated front seats, rear vision camera, and 18-inch alloy wheels. A suite of active safety technologies including full-speed Adaptive Cruise Control, Forward Collision Alert, Side Blind Zone Alert, Lane Change Alert, Lane Departure Warning, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert is available.”
The 2014 Buick Regal is available now at DeVoe Buick GMC! Stop by today to take one for a test drive.
