LeBron James going back to Cleveland

Unless you’ve wisely have subjected yourself to a total media blackout on July 11, you almost certainly heard about professional basketball’s biggest name, LeBron James, going back to Cleveland his hometown team that originally drafted him right out of high school.

magnetic ride control

Magnetic ride control can adjust the handling characteristics of a vehicle 1,000 times per second.

Magnetic Ride Control

One of the best things about several lines of vehicles being built under the same parent company umbrella is that engineering advances can be used across the various automakers without spending a fortune on additional research and development. Such is the case with General Motors and brands like GMC. GMC, one of the top makers of highly capable pickup trucks in the world has announced they have upgraded the suspension of the 2015 GMC Sierra Denali, coming to Cavender Buick GMC West. GMC engineers raided some of the magnetic ride control components from the Cadillac shop and placed them on the new Sierra Denali, resulting in a smoother ride that doesn’t compromise its rugged performance metrics.

Buick GMC Models versus the competition

Cavender Buick GMC West has taken the next logical step when helping customers weed through the seemingly endless amount of information that can be the result of internet research when looking for a new car, truck or SUV. This initiative was actually started a few months ago with the publication of the Buick GMC Model Information page that houses and archives detailed information about each vehicle on our showroom floor. This month we launched the Buick GMC Models versus the competition page. It largely performs the same function but now instead just one of our cars being profiled, you can see how that particular vehicle stacks up against a chief rival. Read the rest of this entry »

The 2014 Buick Verano is easily able to outperform the 2014 Acura ILX.

2014 Buick Verano vs. 2014 Acura ILX

Entry-level luxury cars are becoming an increasingly popular choice for consumers. This trend is clearly evident in the competition between the 2014 Buick Verano vs. the 2014 Acura ILX. Both vehicles in their own right stand up very well. Both offer powerful, yet fuel-efficient engines as well as interiors that pass muster for vehicles of their stature in the automotive class. Yet there are several tiny elements that allow the 2014 Verano to gain a lead on the 2014 ILX that the Buick sedan just never relinquishes. Buick is currently going through a not so secret effort to rebrand itself toward younger car buyers and the Buick Verano is the vehicle that is likely going to take them there.

There is much more the 2014 GMC Sierra than horsepower.

2014 GMC Sierra in San Antonio, TX

What really sets the 2014 GMC Sierra in San Antonio, TX apart from the competition are the things a driver or owner should never see.
