While GM has been busy working on a Cadillac flagship sedan—most likely to be called the LTS, a name recently trademarked by GM—they might also be preparing a flagship vehicle for the Buick brand. Mark Reuss, President of GM for North America, first teased the idea in a recent interview with Forbes. Reuss discussed how GM could close gaps in their overall automobile lineup; when the idea of a Buick flagship surfaced, he hinted that it could be “a much more beautiful Panamera.”
While CEO Dan Akerson wants to be careful that a Buick flagship doesn’t step on the toes of the Cadillac brand’s resurgence, even he admitted that Buick could “probably” use a new flagship. Reuss, for his part, told Auto News that “something special for Buick, I think, is really needed for the next phase of where that brand is going.”
Regardless of if and when Buick might add a flagship to its lineup, one thing remains clear: GM continues its commitment to strengthening Buick’s status as a powerful global brand. With a strong lineup of products like the Encore and Regal in North America—and sister vehicles like the Opel Mekka in Europe—Buick is well positioned to continue its brand resurgence. Come in to College Chevrolet Buick today and test drive one of the Buicks in our inventory today.

October marked Buick’s 18th consecutive month of increased U.S. retail sales, bringing the brand ever-closer to a two-year streak of success. Retail sales were at a 25% year-over-year gain—a record since 2003—and total sales were at a 31% gain—a record since 2004.
The Buick Regal continued its trend of increasing sales by posting a 47% total increase year-over-year, showing that the model is not only an established member of the sports luxury vehicle market but also a strong competitor among the likes of BMW and Mercedes. A refreshed version of the 2014 Regal will begin arriving this month here at College Chevrolet Buick.
The all-new Encore not only sold over 3,000 units this month but also racked up several awards, including “Highest Ranked Subcompact CUV,” in J.D. Power’s Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout Study, “Highest Ranked Subcompact CUV in Initial Quality (in a tie),” and a 2013 Top Safety Pick award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
Also fresh on our lot is the redesigned 2014 LaCrosse, the Regal’s less sporty but more luxurious counterpart. With its large suite of premium features and its fourth consecutive Consumer Guide Automotive Best Buy award, we are positive that like the rest of Buick’s lineup, the LaCrosse will be a hit among any and all luxury vehicle aficionados.
Chevrolet doesn’t only want to know what the Corvette Stingray can handle from drivers; they want to know what drivers can handle from the Stingray. Chevrolet brought together five drivers from across the world with different backgrounds to test drive the Stingray in a closed road setting.
The drivers were hooked up to sensors that recorded their biometric data. Chevrolet tested their heart rate, brain activity and respiration before and during their test drive of the all-new Corvette. A couple of the drivers were fearful before driving the Stingray, but once they were actually in the car their fear turned to confidence.
It’s no doubt that the Stingray will get your heart pumping due to either its beautifully sculpted exterior or its state of the art performance (or both!), but the Stingray can also comfort you with its hand crafted interior comfort and precise handling. The Stingray truly is one of a kind.
How would the Corvette Stingray affect you? Would you feel completely comfortable with all of the horsepower? Or would you feel nervous? Let us know in the comment section below. Also be sure to check out the video from Chevrolet’s YouTube Channel. To see all five drivers’ Biometric Screening videos, check out Autoblog’s article.

That time of year is coming… very, very, soon! No one knows winters quite like Michigan residents. It’s time to dig out your ice scraper and snow shovel to get prepared for winter. If you are in the market for a new vehicle, why not consider something that will be able to deal with the bitter chill and slick roadways? The Chevrolet Silverado and Tahoe both made Autoweek’s list of Best Cars for Winter.
The Chevy Silverado is available in four-wheel-drive which will help you get around town even when the road conditions are poor. The 2014 model offers the most powerful V8 engine available; the EcoTec3 6.2-liter. This great engine will be sure to give enough power to truck through the snow and ice.
The Tahoe is the perfect winter-time family snow machine. It is available in four-wheel-drive and is powered by a 5.3-liter V8 engine. This great vehicle offers plenty of room to fit the entire family if you are making a treacherous snowy holiday trip or vacation.
Even though Fall has just begun, it’s never too early to start thinking about winter and the harsh weather that can come with it. Be prepared for any condition this year by purchasing a new Silverado or Tahoe. Stop by College Chevrolet Buick in Albion, MI to explore all of your options.
Unfortunately, auto accidents happen. Why not be as best prepared as possible? There are a few things you can do to get yourself and your car ready… just in case!
First, be sure to always carry your insurance card with you. Some keep their card in the glove box while others keep it in their purse or wallet. Many insurance companies now have identification cards available to print online or you may also be able to pull up a digital copy on your Smartphone. Just make sure that you have a copy of your insurance card easily accessible in case of an accident.
If an accident occurs, move carefully after impact. Do not injure yourself trying to remove yourself from the vehicle or by helping someone else. Next, be sure to call emergency personnel to the scene. Contact 911 for assistance and call a towing company if you are able.
Next, be sure to get all of the information you need for insurance purposes. Get everyone involved to exchange contact information, insurance information and plate numbers. The police will be able to help you with this task.
The next step is to document the accident. The police and emergency personnel will be able to help you with this task also. Use your camera or cell phone to take pictures of the scene. Also try and get the names of any witnesses if possible.
The last step after an accident is to reach out for assistance. Contact your insurance company to file a claim. Check with your provider to be sure and get your claim entered on time. Also reach out to your local dealership, College Chevrolet Buick, to help you get back on the road quickly.
