Buick Cascada Is Strong, Stylish & Safe

Buick Cascada’s Safety Is Strong and Stylish
Excitement Is In The Air

There’s nothing quite like feeling the wind blow through your hair as you drive along a scenic road, which is what makes convertibles so popular. With the new Buick Cascada coming soon, there will be a stylish new option on the market.

Engineers found a way to blend the Buick Cascada’s safety features into the car without compromising its styling.

The Cascada has a reinforced structure to give the car extra strength and rigidity. It also features rollover protection bars that are spring-loaded and located behind the front seats. They are linked to the air bag system and when deployed extend 14 inches into the air to match the height of the windshield.

“Intelligent design is a hallmark of Buick’s renaissance and the all-new Cascada advances that legacy with seamless integration of great convertible design and safety,” said Holt Ware, Buick exterior design director, in a statement. “It’s a design that fosters the Cascada’s clean, uninterrupted lines while helping enable confident, top-down driving enjoyment.”

Other engineered safety measures include press-hardened steel in the inner structure of the A-pillars, reinforced rocker panels, and underbody reinforcement with X-braces and V-braces.

Because of all of these reinforcements, the Cascada’s structure is extremely rigid. This will give drivers a fantastically responsive driving experience.

Be on the lookout for the 2016 Buick Cascada, which is due to arrive at Ewing Buick GMC in Plano, TX early next year.

2016 Encore Spy Shots
The Encore Gets an Encore

Looking forward to the 2016 Buick Encore? The upcoming redesigned model looks to be the most powerful and innovative Encore model yet – based on new spy shots of the car that have been snapped while the model underwent testing.

The 2016 Encore spy shots don’t reveal the car in its entirety, since the automaker is still hiding much of the body with a camouflage tarp, but the images still show off quite a bit. For one, it seems as if the 2016 Encore is getting a new grille.

Many are predicting that the new Encore model will be less clunky and boxy, and more sleek and angled. These images seem to fit along with that theory, particularly concerning the front fascia of the model.

2016 Buick Verano’s Reveal Turns Heads in Shanghai

2016 Buick Verano’s Reveal
Happiness Comes Standard with the Verano

The much-anticipated 2016 Buick Verano’s reveal happened at the Shanghai GM Gala Night, just ahead of the Shanghai Auto Show. The Verano compact sedan was first introduced in 2011, and the 2016 model will be all-new, marking the car’s second generation.

Though details remain scarce, we do know that the 2016 Verano was inspired by the 2013 Buick Riviera concept, however designers also used elements from the new, luxurious Avenir concept. The Avenir-inspired styling cues include the front and rear wing-tipped LEDs and a windshield and rear glass with a steeper angle. The steeply-raked glass in the front and rear not only reduces the drag coefficient, but also makes the car appear longer than it actually is.

Autoblog.com points out that the new Verano is powered by a 1.5-liter turbocharged Ecotec four cylinder, capable of putting out 166 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque.

It remains to be seen how the U.S.-bound model may differ. Here at Ewing Buick GMC, we’ll keep you updated as more Buick Verano information becomes available.

The next-gen Verano will be equipped with a 1.5-liter turbocharged Ecotec four cylinder that boasts 166 horsepower and 184 lb-ft of torque.

Buick Once Again a Top Sponsor of March Madness

Sponsor of March Madness
Buick Teams Up with March Madness

For five years running, Buick will be a top sponsor of March Madness. In 2015, a lot of the fun is returning from Buick’s sponsorship of the tournament last year. For instance, the Boss Button is back. When you watch games on the NCAA website, the Boss Button helps you make anyone who might be displeased with your viewing believe that you are working on “spreadsheets.” Just click the button, squint your eyes, stare thoughtfully at the screen and start typing madly.  It’s that easy!

 There are also new additions. Buick’s trick shot competition features 16 competitors and allows viewers to pick their favorite much like they would for the March Madness tournament. Although we assume no one doubts that Titus, the three year-old trick shot internet phenomenon, will take the cake.

 Molly Peck, Buick’s Director of Marketing and Advertising, recent explained to brand channelwhy Buick likes working with the NCAA for March Madness. “This audience isn’t just basketball-crazy fans but also those who are excited by the tournament play itself, and by the participation of their schools.” Buick taps into that protracted excitement and creates a lot of interaction.

 Speaking of interaction, vote for your favorite trick shot expert here, or at Ewing Buick GMC in Plano, TX.
