For the first time since the recession, SUVs are regaining some of the momentum it lost to its crossover brethren and finding newfound popularity in the car market. If you’re talking about a resurgence in the full-size SUV segment, you must first look at the offerings of General Motors, whose 2015 model year lineup includes new and improved iterations of the Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban, GMC Yukon and Yukon XL, and the Cadillac Escalade.
GM announced that it pulled in a third-quarter net income of $1.4 billion, thanks in large part to the success of its SUVs and pickup trucks.
“The new trucks and SUVs are more profitable than the ones they replaced. That certainly helps from a profit perspective,” said GM Chief Financial Officer Chuck Stevens.
The 2014-2015 GMC Yukon has been a big part of GM’s success through the first nine months of 2014: to date, GMC has delivered 52,612 models between the Yukon and the Yukon XL. This amounts to a year-to-date increase of 62.3% in the United States.

Never before have drivers seen luxury and power successfully integrated into a full-sized pickup—until now. The all-new 2015 Sierra Denali is the first of its kind, turning heads as it hits the markets. Here at Ewing Buick GMC, our jaws nearly hit the floor when we saw the new pickup.
According to GM, the 2015 Sierra Denali luxury is what really sets the pickup apart. Engineers have come up with a way to incorporate a high standard of comfort, a smooth ride, and innovative technology without sacrificing rugged capability.
The interior features Nuance leather-appointed seating, a heated steering wheel, and Bose audio system among other things. The Denali cabin is specially designed to remain quiet, with triple door seals and shear body mounts to reduce vibrations. An aerodynamic exterior also reduces wind-noise. The Denali also has IntelliLink, a color touch screen and MyMedia content.
Have no fear; the new model doesn’t sacrifice power. A 5.3-liter EcoTec V-8 generates an incredible 355 horsepower, and when paired with Duralife brakes and magnetic ride control, it’s nothing short of incredible.
We’ve been hearing about Buick’s new small SUV, the Envision, for quite a while now. Now that it has had its big debut over in China, we’ve finally gotten a good look at it as well—and we definitely weren’t disappointed. We’re already anxious to get it over from the Chinese market to ours. The good news? Buick seems to be cooperating, as sources told Autoblog Buick dealers can expect the new Buick SUV sometime during the fall of 2015.
“We can’t confirm anything, but clearly it is a very nicely designed and executed product that is very much a Buick,” said Duncan Aldred, Buick sales chief in America said. That sounds like a winking “yes” if we’ve ever heard one.
The Envision will bolster an already-strong Buick SUV lineup that currently includes the Encore and Enclave. The Envision will be slotted right between those vehicles. Come in to Ewing Buick GMC to check them out today and decide which Buick SUV is right for you!
As one of the most widely-consulted consumer magazines, Consumer Reports is an important source to impress. For Buick, this means setting a shining example of luxury with the newest Buick Regal sedan. After comparing the American sedan with the more expensive BMW 328 and Mercedes-Benz C250, Consumer Reports has decided that when it comes to choosing your next car, you should choose Buick.
“[The] Regal beat the Volvo S60 in a head-to-head road test. Ultimately, the Regal wound up finishing just one point shy of the class-leading BMW 328i and tied the Mercedes-Benz C250 for second place in the organization’s overall ratings of upscale sport sedans—while costing thousands less.”
With Buick’s recent move toward more sporty performance cars and away from their dowdy reputation that formed in over the past few years, the American brand has been able to give German carmakers a run for their money. Priced at only $34,485, the Regal Premium comes with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo engine and front wheel drive, offering plenty of luxury for those looking for a great value. If you happen to be one of those people, stop in to Ewing Buick GMC today and see why Consumer Reports says, “Choose Buick!”
