June has been a good month for GMC. First, it wins the top Popular Brand Award in AutoPacific’s Vehicle Satisfaction Awards and now it has earned awards for the Yukon and Terrain in J.D. Power’s Initial Quality Study.
The GMC Yukon took the top prize in the large SUV segment and the GMC Terrain came out on top in the compact SUV category.
“We are committed to the customer experience in everything we do at GMC, from the first visit to the dealership, to the drive home, or 10 years down the road,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of Buick and GMC, in a statement. “This study demonstrates we are following through on our commitment to quality and to our consumers.”
J.D. Power based this year’s results on responses from more than 86,000 people after owning a new 2014 model year vehicle for 90 days. Respondents answered 233 questions about their cars, which will give automakers useful information to quickly identify problems and make improvements.
Sometimes good things come in small(er) packages. Such is the case for the all-new 2015 GMC Canyon. The mid-size pickup offers a host of features in its compact frame, but perhaps one of the most exciting is the available OnStar 4G LTE service with Wi-Fi hotspot capabilities.
Your truck really will be the hot spot as it provides Wi-Fi for up to seven devices in and around the vehicle.
Just imagine setting up camp on the beach and streaming Netflix on your computer for an outdoor movie night. Or maybe you’ll be gearing up for the start of football season as you plan for the tailgate party of the year complete with a little Madden NFL 15 action between you and your friends, even those playing from home.
“GMC customers appreciate excellence. When they do something, they do it well,” said Rich Latek, marketing director for GMC. “With a 4G LTE data connection and the ability to connect up to seven devices, including gaming systems, smartphones, and tablets, GMC owners will draw the envy of nearby tailgaters in stadium parking lots across America.”
OnStar’s 4G LTE service keeps customers connected in new ways, maximizing the potential of the all-new Canyon as it enters the compact truck segment.

The GMC Yukon is more than worthy of its rough and beautiful moniker—it’s a full-size vehicle that’s long been one of the most popular and capable choices in the upscale SUV market. To honor that past performance, GMC went back to the drawing board and designed the all-new 2015 Yukon, a bigger and better vehicle in every way.
The 2015 Yukon comes in four trims, from the base Yukon to the XL, Denali, and ultimate XL Denali models, and across the board, GMC has made vast improvements in the lineup. It starts with an overall redesign, inside and out, that leaves the new Yukon looking chiseled and ready for anything. Plus, the SUV seats up to nine passengers, and with cavernous backseats, there’s no bad seat in this rolling house.
Under the hood, you’ll encounter a EcoTec3 V8 engine with a host of advanced technologies—Active Fuel Management, Advanced Direct Injection, and Variable Valve Timing, just to name a few—capable of 355 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque. Plus it’s equipped with Hill Start Assist and designed to give it the best and smoothest handling in Yukon history. There’s a whole lot more features to cover on this baby, but there’s simply not enough space on our blog, so make sure to come see us at Warsaw Buick GMC for a more detailed overview very soon!
A club at East Syracuse Minoa (ESM) High School has restored a rare and beautiful ’63 Buick Wildcat convertible and will be raffling the vehicle off at a club event at the high school next month. It’s a pretty cool accomplishment for the students of the ESM Automotive Technology Club, who will use the Wildcat as the centerpiece of the 10th Annual Cruise-In/Open House/Car Show which will be held on Saturday, June 7.
The restored Wildcat comes with a 401 cubic inch, 6.6L engine paired to an automatic transmission, it’s painted a brilliant Inferno Red with a white top and a blacked out interior, and it even features power steering, windows, and seats. The Wildcat, which is one of only about 6000 every produced, was donated to the club by Irving Goldman of Manlius and looks simply stunning in its refreshed state.
The beautiful ’63 Wildcat proves that luxurious and powerful cars are no recent development for the Buick brand—and we’re carrying the result of over fifty years of innovation and marvelous design in our inventory here at Warsaw Buick GMC. When you’re down salivating over the ESM students’ red restored Wildcat, come see us at Warsaw to salivate over models like the Verano and LaCrosse today.
