2017 Buick Encore Updates Revealed at NYIAS

2016 Buick Encore

Current Buick Encore Available at College Chevrolet Buick

Since its debut in 2013, the small crossover Encore—Buick’s most popular vehicle—hasn’t seen any major changes…until now. The many 2017 Buick Encore updates were revealed last month at the New York International Auto Show, showing off a new design and some exciting tech.

The front end has been totally redesigned to be more sculpted and refined than the previous Encore, with LED head- and taillights available. Inside, the 2017 Encore has some style updates, like the centralized dash and some cosmetic accents.

The new IntelliLink system will also be available in the new Encore, with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, two new apps that allow drivers to integrate their smartphones with the IntelliLink system. The Encore comes standard with 4G LTE Wi-Fi capabilities and has convenient features like keyless entry and start.

The Encore has standard front-wheel drive with the option of upgrading to all-wheel drive, and the turbocharged 4-cylinder engine has an output of 148 horsepower at the base level. This is certainly an Encore we’re looking forward to!

Buick Avista Concept Shows Off Its Curves in Detroit

BuickBuick showed off a new concept at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit that had us craving for a new sports coupe. Titled the Buick Avista concept, it borrows many of its looks from the award-winning Avenir concept, which debuted last year at the same event.

The front end features the prominent grille and wings that stretch away from the colored tri-shield logo. In addition to the flashy, aggressive headlights, these are all design cues we should expect on future Buick models at College Chevrolet Buick.

Under the hood is a twin-turbocharged V6 engine producing an impressive 400 horsepower—all sent to the rear wheels for maximum enjoyment. It reminds us of Buick’s racing heritage and hints at future performance models—at least, so we hope.

“The Avista embodies the dynamic soul of Buick,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of global Buick sales, service, and marketing. “It is a modern expression of the brand’s heritage of sophisticated performance, communicated with beautiful elegance.”

2015 Chevy Colorado

Do you know you want a truck with technology and stuff? Chevrolet knows you do. At least, that’s what the American carmaker claims in a brand new series of web videos that advertise the appeal of the all-new Chevrolet Colorado midsize truck.

The three videos, which are available on Chevrolet’s YouTube channel, show how owning a truck can possibly change the perception of the truck owners—even making some of the truck owners more rugged, dependable, and dateable. Each spot takes place in a separate place and features real people in focus groups, online dating, and the Health and Beauty aisle of a supermarket, reinforcing what it really means to be a “Truck Guy.”

“The films are centered around the idea that there is an inner truck guy in everyone,” said Paul Edwards, U.S. Vice President of Chevrolet Marketing. “The game-changing Chevrolet Colorado will enable people to unleash their inner truckness.”

With a variety of advanced technology and other “stuff,” including class-leading power, towing, and fuel economy, there’s no denying that the Chevrolet Colorado is a great truck choice. So, do you want a truck with technology and stuff? Stop in to College Chevrolet Buick and test-drive the Colorado—we think you’ll definitely figure out you’re a truck guy.

Here at College Chevy, we have been anticipating the release of the 2015 Chevy Colorado. We know that Chevrolet’s revitalized mid-size truck will offer better MPGs and more utility than before. We know that fuel-efficiency is something that people look for when purchasing a new vehicle and we’re sure that the Chevy Colorado will not disappoint.

Coming in at $5,000 less than its big sister, the Chevy Colorado will be an affordable pickup. The base model featuring a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine and 6-speed manual transmission will start at just $20,995. The engine makes 200-horsepower and 191-lb.ft of torque which is enough to help you even with the toughest jobs.

Drivers may also opt for the more powerful V-6 engine which makes 305-horsepower and 269 lb.-ft of torque. This engine will come standard with a 6-speed automatic transmission and plenty of interior features. Some of our favorite features included in the Colorado include a rear vision camera, locking tailgate, and power windows.

If the V-6 isn’t enough to do the job, drivers can also purchase a Colorado with a 2.8-liter Duramax diesel engine. This model will come with a higher price tag, but when it comes to tough jobs and efficiency, it will definitely be the way to go.

Be sure to stop by our dealership when the Colorado makes its debut! We hope to see you soon at College Chevrolet Buick!
