Ward’s Top 10: GMC Canyon Interior

WardsAuto World released their Top 10 Best Interiors Awards and the GMC Canyon made the list! With an entire brochure of materials to connectivity inside the cabin, the midsize pickup impressed editors and earned its spot. With many new additions to the interior, including OnStar 4G LTE with WI-FI hotspot, drivers can remain in comfort without paying the price.

“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, WardsAuto World Editor-in-Chief. “The Canyon demonstrates that shoppers need not buy a loaded full-size pickup to get lots of soft surfaces, a Bose audio system, supple and durable leather, an easily navigated touchscreen and advanced safety features.”

The GMC Canyon interior was designed to fit everyone’s needs. The SLE and SLT models feature connectivity and entertainment. An eight inch touch screen complete with radio and multicolor driver information is front and center. The SLT model includes heated front bucket seats and a power passenger seat as well.

WardsAuto examined 42 new vehicle interiors and ranked them on design harmony, materials, safety, comfort, fit-and-finish, and value. Aesthetics and design harmony were the two most weighted categories in the decision.

The Canyon also won a midsize pickup comparison by Cars.com and was recognized in Autoweek’s Best of the Best Truck of 2015.

You can go far, in comfort, in the returning, all-new GMC Canyon from Warsaw Buick GMC.

Virtual GMC Canyon Offers Custom Experience

General Motors has a new interactive game out to reach potential buyers. Partnering with Google, who created the Pac Man on Google Maps game that used streets as a maze, the automaker is offering a virtual GMC Canyon similar to the Pac Man game. Titled the “Canyon Experience”, it allows users freedom in customizing and driving (virtually) a 2015 Canyon.2015 Canyon - Virtual GMC Canyon

In all, users can try driving the Canyon in four different environments (mountains, city, shore, or rural) to see how it handles. For more customization, users can add different options like hills, downhill grades, and trailer stability to see how the Canyon handles. The program then shows the truck handling the terrain and what tech is active.

Using Google Street View, users can drop the Canyon onto any street in the United States. Users can also place the truck right in front of their homes to see how it would look. Included in showing buyers the looks and features are several Easter eggs as well, like parking inside the White House.

The “Canyon Experience” is the first of its kind for any automaker and so far it looks like a hit. Don’t take our word for it. You can try it for yourself here.

Buick Avenir Concept Has a Really Fancy Lighting System

Buick has revealed details about the advanced lighting system on the Buick Avenir concept, which shows the direction of Buick’s intended designs for future headlights and taillamps.

New LED technology has allowed the Avenir’s designers to truly hone the look of lighting elements and the light they emit while saving energy.

Buick Avenir conceptThe Avenir’s fancy headlamps include trios of jewel-like LEDs, arranged in a “wave” shape meant to match the forms inside the cabin. Along with the taillamps, they also feature diffused light elements that form wings across the top of the lamp assembly, each of which incorporates the signature Buick tri-shield logo and continues the layered pattern found on the decorative trim and seating surfaces.

“Signature lighting is often the first design element people notice on a vehicle,” said Martin Davis, design manager for exterior lighting. “A distinctive illuminated graphic is incredibly important—it is an opportunity to visually communicate the design aesthetic of the brand. The wing signature lighting is a Buick design hallmark that will help you identify a Buick product on the road.”

We look forward to seeing these new designs make their way to our lineup at Warsaw Buick GMC!
