Prepare the Showroom. It’s Time for an Encore.

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, the 2013 Buick Encore has been but on the fast track to College Chevrolet Buick.

The Encore has already been named one of the “Top 10 Must Test Drive Vehicles for 2013” by Autotrader.com. And with the 2013 Encore’s low starting price and excellent fuel economy, it’s also been added to the American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy list of Greener Choices 2013.

But the Buick Encore is more than just a crossover that can when over the auto industry, it’s a vehicle designed to provide luxury, performance, and versatility to drivers and passengers. This 2013 Buick can handle the contours of the urban streets and provide space and entertainment for up to five.

 

Equipped with active noise cancellation, laminated glass, and sound absorbing materials, the Buick Encore’s interior is built to make your trip home through traffic as calm and peaceful as possible.

And if you need a little extra space to carry something, the Encore has you covered with a folding rear seat AND a fold-flat front passenger seat.

If you haven’t been sold on all the 2013 Buick Encore has to offer by our words and the high industry praise, (check out the video below :D) come test drive the Encore at College and see if you don’t fall head over heels for newest one from Buick.

 

Detroit Tigers Caravan Visits with Chevrolet

As January draws to a close, baseball fans get ready for the start of spring training. To rev fans up for the 2013 season the Detroit Tigers have begun their annual Winter Caravan, hitting a few popular venues and making stops all over Michigan to greet fans.

Chevrolet is embracing the hometown Tigers by putting on a few events, starting with an invitation only meet and greet between Tigers players and military service members and their families. The event takes place Jan 24th at the GM Heritage Center with service members coming from the Selfridge Air National Guard Base and the National Guard.

 

Friday Jan 25th, Tigers players will make two stops, first at the North American Auto Show, where they will answer questions and sign autographs at the Chevy display.  This event takes place at 11:30am.

The second event on will be a rally with GM employees at the GM Renaissance Center Wintergarden.  Fox Sports Detroit reporter, Shannon Hogan will be present  to host a “pre-game” show.

Tigers spring training tickets are on sale now. We hope you got tickets for TigerFest 2013, this Saturday at Comerica, because they are sold out.

Stingray Surfs the Screens

Now that the all-new 2014 Corvette Stingray has finally been unveiled at the North American International Auto Show, it is time for it to be unveiled for Gran Turismo®5 for the PS3™. Tomorrow, for the first time, fans will be able to download (for free) the Corvette Stingray to play on the game.

The virtual driving experience was researched thoroughly so that everything is authentic. Careful attention was given to every detail, from aesthetic design to engine performance right down to the transmission shift schedule.

 

“The Polyphony team has had an unforgettable experience getting to know the Corvette Stingray, inside and out, and bringing it into Gran Turismo 5,” said Kazunori Yamauchi, president of Polyphony Digital Inc. (the company that produces the video game). “We’re excited to share our experience with fans and let them feel, explore and drive the Corvette in a way that wasn’t possible until now.”

We at College Chevrolet Buick are really excited to get our first taste of driving the all-new 2014 Corvette tomorrow—even if it is only in a game.

Buick Helps Students Achieve their Dreams

Are you a high school student getting ready to graduate or a college student—or an overly giving parent of a college student—already too familiar with how expensive a college education is? College Chevrolet Buick is here to help.

Now through February 28th (at 5 p.m. EST, to be specific), Buick will be receiving applications for the Buick Achievers Scholarship, funded by the General Motors Foundation. In its first two years, the program awarded over $12 million to students pursuing majors in information technology, design, engineering, and business. This will be the third year that the scholarships will be awarded to 1,100 hardworking students.

1,000 students will receive a one-time, nonrenewable scholarship for $2,000. An additional 100 students—recognized as being the most distinguished and persevering entrants—will receive scholarships up to $25,000 a year, renewable for four years (or five, depending on the engineering program the student is in).

Buick Achievers Scholarship

Since the scholarship program began, over 2,000 students have received award money, represented by all 50 states. 120 military veterans have received the financial aid, and a surprising and heartening 1,000 students who are the first in their families to attend college have merited the award.

If you think you’ve got what it takes, enter for the 2013 year by February 28th! Stop by College Chevrolet Buick for details.
