Imagine you could take your long commute and turn it into a productive, enjoyable time. With Buick and GMC Infotainment technology, you can. Check out these tips on how to use your car’s infotainment systems to make the most of your regular commutes.
Enjoy hands-free phone capabilities
Both the Buick and GMC infotainment systems come with Bluetooth® hands-free phone capabilities. This tool lets you place and receive calls and text messages without taking their hands off the wheel. With this feature, a commute becomes an opportunity to catch up with a friend or family member — or just get work-related calls out of the way while on the road.
Charge your devices
The Buick and GMC infotainment technology includes USB ports that can not only sync a device with the system but can also charge the device while you’re on the road. Multiple available USB ports provide additional charging opportunities for passengers throughout the cabin.
Link with your media
With Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ capabilities, Buick and GMC infotainment lets drivers sync their compatible devices with the in-cabin touch screen. This brings things like personal playlists and podcasts to the touchscreen, where media options are easy to access and navigate. With this feature, it’s easy to spend your commute listening to audiobooks or enjoying your favorite podcast.
GMC is delivering performance like never before with a new series of Sierra CarbonPro™ Edition trucks. Available this summer on the Denali 1500 and AT4 1500 trims, you’ll find the purpose-built GMC CarbonPro bed. It uses a state-of-the-art carbon fiber composite material to resist corrosion, reduce weight, and improve durability. By cutting unnecessary weight, this bed is works to improve driving dynamics.
According to GMC, the benefits of the carbon fiber bed are multifold. First, it’s stronger than most metals, as well as scratch resistant. It also doesn’t rust, like steel, and it reduces unnecessary weight. You get more volume with this special bed design, as well as better functionality thanks to added tie-down locations.
“CarbonProis made of the same raw material found in seven-figure super cars and even aerospace applications,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president, Global GMC. “Coupled with offering the world’s first six-function MultiPro tailgate, the 2019 Sierra packs a one-two hauling punch for whatever the situation demands.”
GMC engineers have been hard at work testing the new bed to make sure it lasts. They’ve don’t drop tests, corrosion tests, extreme temperature testing, and more. Perhaps best of all, this carbo fiber bed doesn’t need a spray-in bedliner for protection because it’s so durable. Since it’s dent resistant, you also don’t need wheelhouse liners — and since it’s lighter than a metal truck bed, you can even carry an additional 59 pounds.
The 2019 GMC Sierra marks a new generation for the Sierra pickup, and with it come several changes, including new engine options with new Dynamic Fuel Management. Perhaps most notably, however, the 2019 Sierra 1500 boasts the new MultiPro™ tailgate, the one and only of its kind. This unique tailgate boasts six distinct functions that make loading and unloading cargo from the bed — as well as accessing the cargo bed — much easier.
Those six functions include:
Primary Gate Load Stop
Inner Gate Load Stop
Inner Gate with Work Surface
To celebrate this new pickup truck feature that no competitor is offering, the automaker ran a commercial during major football games. The new GMC Sierra ad, called “Anthem,” shows off the versatility of this MultiPro tailgate.
The ad, though unconventional, creatively shows off this
innovative feature. The ad features drivers of competing trucks detaching their
tailgates. Together, they journey to a hill, while singing Steam’s “Na Na Hey
Hey Kiss Him Goodbye.” At the crest of the hill, they find the GMC Sierra 1500 with
its owner, showing off the six unique functions of the tailgate.
Fortunately, you don’t have to summit a mountain to check out the new MultiPro™ tailgate. Just come in to Richard Karr Buick GMC, and check out the Sierra 1500.
Is your gas budget a little bigger than you’d like? Here are some fuel efficiency tips for improving the fuel economy of your vehicle.
The more you accelerate, the more your vehicle burns through fuel. It doesn’t matter what speed you’re at—maintaining steady speeds uses less gas than stop-and-go traffic. Try using more highways and accelerating slower.
This goes hand-in-hand with the previous tip. The more you brake, the more you have to accelerate. Try coasting up to stoplights instead of racing to the white line. This gives the traffic light a chance to turn green before you get there.
The Denali line has long been world-renowned as one of the most luxurious offerings in the industry thanks to its use of high-end premium materials, bold stance, and aggressive engine. Now the 2018 GMC Yukon Denali is raising the bar with a new look and some near gear under the hood.
Style comes standard in all Denali models and the GMC Yukon is one of the first to get a refreshed look. A new thin-and-thick front grille offers a more aggressive design and looks similar to the Terrain and Acadia. The Yukon Denali grille also comes equipped with automatic shutters to help reduce drag.
The 2018 GMC Yukon Denali is the third model under the General Motors umbrella to feature the new 10-speed automatic transmission. That new transmission comes mated to a standard 6.2-liter V8 engine that delivers an impressive 420 hp and 460 lb-ft of torque. Official fuel economy figures aren’t out just yet, but General Motors expects the new 10-speed automatic to deliver better numbers than the outgoing eight-speed automatic.
Of course, no Denali is complete without a high-end interior and the Yukon Denali is no exception. The 2018 model features Mastique Ash real wood throughout the cabin. Drivers will also enjoy three rows of leather-lined seating and incredible towing capability.
We here at Richard Karr Motors are pumped to get behind the wheel of the new 2018 GMC Yukon Denali!
