Buick Enclave Lineup

We know Buick for its luxurious look and feel and Nielsen for being the top consumer research firm in the business. Recently Buick was honored by Nielsen for the “Landing” commercial featuring the 2014 Buick Enclave. The ad shows a man and his family returning to a snow-covered airport from what we can assume to be a warm vacation. The man pulls out his phone, opens his MyBuick app, and starts his chilly car from inside the airplane. Since the Enclave features standard climate control and heated seats, the vehicle is nice and warm when the family arrives to the parking lot. Take a look at the full commercial below.

This commercial was named 2013 Luxury Campaign of the Year in Nielsen’s eighth annual Automotive Advertising Awards. The awards are established by results for Nielsen’s national TV ad effectiveness surveys. Nielsen says that the “Landing” commercial by Buick was able to be recalled and remembered by consumers. The surveys were completed by adults between the ages of 25-54 with a household income of $70,000 or higher.

We are proud to have the 2014 Buick Enclave available on our lot in Plano, Texas. If you would like to see all of its surprising features for yourself, stop by Ewing Buick GMC!

The GMC Terrain is a Top Safety Pick +

In a recent vehicle assessment by the IIHS, the GMC Terrain was named a Top Safety Pick+! The Terrain was one of the only midsize SUVs tested to receive this top designation. In order to receive this honor, the Terrain had to undergo rigorous testing which tested both its features and overall strength.

One of the tests, the front overlap crash, was a head-on collision where 25% the vehicle strikes another object at 40 mph. This test is aimed to mimic a head-on utility pole crash. The Terrain was one of the only two vehicles to receive a “Good” rating on this test. The IIHS also tested a variety of other strengths and features of the vehicles to determine safety ratings.

Along with a strong front structure that can withstand tough collisions, the Terrain houses many great safety features. Some of our favorite features include: a rear vision camera, OnStar Emergency services, daytime running lamps, StabiliTrak stability control system, and available forward collision alert and lane departure.

With a Top Safety Pick+ rating from the IIHS and a long list of safety features, the GMC Terrain makes for a perfect family vehicle. If you would like to know more about the Terrain stop by our dealership near McKinney!
