The new GMC Canyon returned this year to take on a weak, aging midsize pickup market. The Canyon features a rugged exterior, and an interior to be reckoned with. While the Chevrolet Colorado also returned, only one of the two midsize pickups made it onto Ward’s Best Interior List.

The editors over at Ward’s Auto World selected their top 10 vehicles with the best interior. Here at Ewing Buick GMC, we aren’t surprised that the GMC Canyon made the list. With one of the best interiors we have available, the GMC Canyon is one of the best choices for comfort, space, and convenience.

“It’s important that great interiors be available in every class of vehicle, not just luxury models that most consumers will never be able to afford,” said Drew Winter, Ward’s Auto World Editor-in-Chief.

Ward’s Auto staff tested, examined, and evaluated 42 new vehicle interiors this year. They ranked everything from design harmony to driver information to safety and back again. With an interior built to suit everyone’s lifestyle, the new GMC Canyon was an obvious choice.

Buick Regal Highlights Buick’s Best Value Luxury Brand Lineup

Best Value Luxury Brand
The Glorious Buick Regal

The customers have spoken, and once again, they’ve ruled in favor of the fantastic Buick lineup. In the 2015 Brand Image Awards from Kelley Blue Book, Buick was named the Best Value Luxury Brand—for the third consecutive year. The fact that the awards are based on consumer ratings is just icing on the cake for the Buick brand.

“Earning this recognition three consecutive years indicates that we’re shifting consumer perception,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of Buick. “Consumers now understand that great products and service is what to expect from Buick.” One of those products is the new Buick Regal, which wears an elegant exterior design over a comfortable interior and a capable engine.

In fact, the standard engine is a 2.0L turbo four-cylinder beast with 259 horsepower, yet it still gets 30 mpg on the highway. That number jumps up to 36 mpg highway with the 2.4L engine equipped with eAssist technology. The Regal also has tons of safety and technology features, so come see us at Ewing Buick GMC to learn more about the 2015 Buick Regal and the rest of the award-winning brand today.

Buick an Image of Class

For Buick, the customer always comes first—and it shows. The American carmaker recently received the Kelley Blue Book 2015 Brand Image Award, a prestigious accolade that recognizes Buick for its appealing vehicle lineup and top-notch customer service. This is the third year in a row that KBB.com has awarded Buick the Best Value Luxury brand, showing the carmaker is one of the best in the industry.

“Earning this recognition three consecutive years indicates that we’re shifting consumer perception,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of Buick. “Consumers now understand that great products and service is what to expect from Buick.”

Kelley Blue Book based these awards on a survey completed by more than 12,000 in-market new-vehicle shoppers. The survey, which is completely annually by the prestigious website, examines each brand’s customer service and overall brand representation. Buick has recently made an effort to improve its customers’ purchasing experiences and its vehicle lineup, allowing the American carmaker to also be recognized for its dependability and value-oriented prices.

Warmer Weather Approaches: Car Cooling Tricks to Avoid the Heat

Car Cooling Tricks
Spring Maintenance

Spring is finally here, and while for many, that means the joy of the winter months melting away, others are concerned about the dreaded car heat. You know, that horrible wave of hot air that hits you when you return to your parked car? To prevent this summer staple, just in time for the warm weather to roll around, all of us at Ewing Buick GMC have put together a list of car cooling tricks:

  • Park in the shade if there are any covered spots available.
  • Manufacture some shade for yourself, with a blanket or a sun shade, up against the windshield.
  • Once you’re back in the car – make sure you’ve got you’re A/C set to fresh air as opposed to recirculation, which would take much longer to cool down.
  • Take your car in for a routine check-up to make sure everything is working properly, particularly the vents and air conditioning.
  • Have an emergency supply of water in the car to keep you hydrated, which also helps to bring down body temperature.
