Buick Places Second in 2022 U.S. Vehicle Dependability

2022 Buick Enclave | Memphis, TN

Looking for a vehicle that delivers reliable performance alongside upscale luxury? Check out what J.D. Power’s 2022 U.S. Vehicle Dependability Survey has to say about popular picks like the Buick Encore, the Encore GX, and the Enclave Avenir.

The yearly J.D. Power Vehicle Dependability Study examines vehicles on 184 potential problem areas, spread across nine vehicle categories. For the latest round of the study, J.D. Power added driving assistance as a category, in addition to conventional ones like infotainment, interior quality, seating, powertrain performance, and driving experience.

The results are based on owner survey responses from drivers who have had their vehicles for three years. Using this data, the experts at J.D. Power crunch the number to figure out how many problems drivers experience per 100 vehicles.

According to the results, Buick is among the most reliable brands on the market, scoring second place with just 148 issues per 100 vehicles. That puts Buick far ahead of pricy competitors, like Lexus, Mercedes-Benz, Porsche, INFINITI, and Land Rover.

If you’re looking to get behind the wheel of a reliable and luxurious Buick vehicle, we have a range of new and used options to choose from. Whether you’re looking for a compact, family-friendly Encore GX or a spacious Envision, we can help you find the perfect model at Sunrise Buick GMC at Wolfchase in Memphis, Tennessee.

Introducing the GMC Sierra EV

Sierra EV | Memphis, TN

GMC is quickly adding more electric vehicles to its lineup. After the Hummer EV, GMC has plans to release an all-electric version of the Sierra. While it could have a unique name, it will likely just be called the Sierra EV. GMC will release this new electric truck as part of its 2023 lineup.

While GM has not released too many details about this new truck, we expect it will be powered by GM’s Ultium battery packs with the option of either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. It’s expected that the Sierra EV will be available with a variety of battery options to suit different driving preferences. The standard battery option is predicted to offer more than 200 miles of driving range, while the long-range option will likely top out around 400 miles.

Initially, the Sierra EV may be available only in the range-topping Denali trim. Though, other trim options will likely follow later on.

An innovative electric option that we may see on the Sierra EV is an onboard generator that can be used to power appliances or your home. This could be helpful during a weather emergency if your area loses power for a significant amount of time.

Stay tuned to our blog for more news on the Sierra EV. Or visit us at Sunrise Buick GMC at Wolfchase to take one of our current Sierra trucks for a whirl.

Treat Your GMC Acadia to These GMC Accessories in the New Year

GMC Acadia

It’s a new year — and it’s time to give your GMC Acadia a fresh start with some genuine GMC accessories. Here’s a look at a few accessories that’ll help you get the most out of your Acadia.

Keep the kids entertained

Got little ones in tow? Keep them engaged on long drives with the available rear-seat infotainment system.

Hook up a gaming console, an SD card, USB drive, smartphone, tablet, or a smart TV stick via the system’s HDMI port.

Carry more cargo

If you need to carry more gear than your Acadia’s cargo bay can hold, check out some roof rack cross rails. Once they’re installed, it’s a breeze to secure all of your gear to the top of your vehicle, from paddleboards and canoes to mountain bikes and skis. You can also opt for a roof-mounted cargo box to secure smaller items.

Organize your cargo bay

When you’ve got a busy family life, it’s easy for the Acadia’s spacious cargo bay to become a bit cluttered. But it’s easy to fix that issue with the official GMC cargo organizer. This convenient folding crate offers dividers to help you keep your gear tidy, along with attachment straps that allow you to secure it from sliding around. You can also opt for a cargo net to corral larger items, like soccer balls and basketballs, or a cargo area shade to protect your gear from prying eyes.

Exciting Changes to the 2022 GMC Acadia

2022 GMC Acadia | Memphis, TN

The 2022 GMC Acadia will get a lot of exciting updates for the new model year. Not only does it ditch the previous model year’s two-row option in favor of a three-row option with a six- or seven-seat layout. But you can also expect updates to engine options and trim levels, among other things.

The 2022 Acadia boasts a more powerful base engine. Instead of a 2.5-liter four-cylinder that outputs 193 horsepower, this model gets a turbocharged 2.0-liter I-4 that produces 228 horsepower, for more potency without sacrificing efficiency.

Thrill-seekers should choose the available 3.6-liter V6 engine with 310 horsepower and 271 lb-ft of torque. Delivering robust performance, this engine is available on the SLT trim and standard on the AT4 and the Denali.

For the 2022 model year, GMC has swapped out the base SL trim with the SLE trim. Both of these come standard with an 8-inch touch screen GMC Infotainment System and GMC Pro Safety Plus, a suite of safety technologies including Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Alert, and Intellibeam headlights.

The SLE and SLT are still followed by the AT4 off-roading trim and the luxury Denali trim. These didn’t get any major upgrades for the new model year — but who’s complaining when these two trims are satisfying just the way they are.

Stop by Sunrise Buick GMC at Wolfchase to explore our current selection of Acadia models, as we wait for the 2022 model to arrive here at our dealership later this year.
