Buick is taking drivers into the future by honoring and improving upon its past. The automaker recently unveiled an all-new Electra concept crossover in China, and it is truly a sight to behold.
This new take on an old Buick favorite now looks like something from another planet. Sleek lines and a sci-fi color scheme give it the appearance of a space capsule, and its interior is equally as futuristic. A suite of advanced infotainment and connective technologies will provide drivers with more behind-the-wheel power and control than ever before.
The new Electra will now ride on an electric platform and will be powered by a slew of next-gen technologies. A powerful Ultium battery will give it an impressive range of 410 miles on a single charge, and its electric motors will pump out a combined 583 horsepower.
This Electra concept is the latest step in Buick’s current push for an all-electric automotive future. “Building on Buick’s proven leadership in electrification, the Electra represents the brand’s ambition to bring together beautiful styling and intelligent connectivity in the new era of zero emissions,” said SAIC-GM’s Executive Director of Buick Sales and Marketing, Molly Peck.
While Buick’s lineup of electric vehicles has so far been exclusive to China, GM is fully invested in bringing these eco-friendly rides to Western markets. Until then, be sure to stop by Sunrise Buick GMC at Wolfchase for a look at our lineup of new and used GM vehicles.
General Motors shocked car enthusiasts everywhere when the automaker announced that the infamous Hummer would be revived under its GMC brand. In advance of GM’s fall showcase where full details about the macho vehicle’s revival are expected to be released, Sunrise Buick GMC at Wolfchase has compiled some of the juiciest facts about the upcoming Hummer EV.
Eco-Friendly: If you remember anything about the Hummer’s original run, you probably know that its aggressive body and impressive performance didn’t exactly qualify it as an eco-friendly vehicle. The all-new iteration of the Hummer has set out to challenge your preconceptions with its innovative new all-electric motor and Ultium battery with quick charge capabilities.
High-Tech: The new Hummer will also be filled to the brim with a bunch of exciting technologies. Though we aren’t sure what the Hummer’s “Crab Mode” has in store for us quite yet, we do know that the new vehicle will feature the fan-favorite Super Cruise autonomous driving technology, previously only available on Cadillac models.
Mega-Powered: Like its predecessor, the all-new GMC Hummer is expected to pack a major punch of power. The Hummer is expected to deliver a massive 1,000 horsepower and an unheard-of 11,500 lb-ft of wheel torque.

The Buick Encore has been a popular model for years and has often been one of the best-selling vehicles in the subcompact crossover segment. Since June, Buick has been producing the new 2021 Encore, which shows promise of continuing the model’s success.
The Bupyeong production plant stopped producing the 2020 Encore on May 29. Then, on June 1, the plant began producing the 2021 model. Based on the production start date, it’s expected that the 2021 Encore will be released in the spring of 2021.
The 2021 Encore is set to share many family-friendly features with the 2020 model and have some small changes. The new crossover is reducing its number of trim levels and will only be carrying over the base and Preferred trims.
Three new color options will be available for the 2021 Encore, and two color options are disappearing. In addition, the model will now come with Forward Collision Alert to provide your family with extra peace of mind when driving around Memphis, Tennessee.
We at Sunrise Buick GMC at Wolfchase look forward to adding the 2021 Buick Encore to our inventory next year. If you don’t want to wait until then to purchase a new family hauler, check out the different Buick models we currently have available online.
When General Motors announced that the Envision would be receiving a makeover for the 2021 model year, Buick lovers all over the globe rejoiced – especially after the automaker released images depicting a radically different, sportier exterior than the outgoing edition. Fans of the Envision will be ecstatic to learn that images from a Chinese GM partner, SAIC, have revealed the forthcoming compact crossover’s interior design will look like. The sales team at Sunrise Buick in Memphis, TN has compiled the most notable updates to the Envision below.
- All-New Dashboard: The most eye-popping new detail from the 2021 Envision’s interior photos is the futuristic infotainment system. Expected to measure 10 inches diagonally, the sleek new screen is seamlessly integrated within the dashboard and turned 18 degrees towards the driver for a streamlined appearance.
- Wireless Connectivity: Though Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ have both helped to revolutionize the way we integrate our smartphones with our cars, the technology has been slightly held back by its reliance on a corded connection. That is, until the 2021 Buick Envision hops on the scene. The newly redesigned crossover will allow for wireless connection to the popular platforms.
- Avenir: As expected, the Avenir trim of the new 2021 Envision allows drivers to indulge in the highest level of decadence. Luxury lovers will adore heated/ventilated quilted leather seats with gorgeous two-tone upholstery.

The cabin of the 2021 Envision is just as refined its exterior. It seamlessly incorporates innovative technologies that can entertain your whole family and keep you connected to loved ones on the go.

The Buick Encore has long been a customer favorite among Sunrise Buick’s clientele because of the subcompact SUV’s flexibility to appeal to new drivers, retirees, and young families alike. According to recently-released fourth-quarter sales data, it looks like the rest of the United States is hip to the Encore’s charms as well.
According to General Motors, the Buick Encore experienced a 22 percent growth in sales during the fourth quarter of 2019, catapulting the versatile crossover to become one of the country’s top five bestselling subcompact SUVs. The Encore sold a whopping 28,497 units in quarter four of 2019, significantly outpacing its prior-year total of 23,326. Over the entirety of 2019, the Encore sold a total of 102,402 units, accounting for a 10 percent year-over-year growth in sales.
One reason for the Encore’s recent popularity is growth in the subcompact crossover segment as a whole. From quarter three to quarter four, there was a 9.4 percent growth in the class the Encore belongs to. However, the sales associates at Sunrise Buick at Wolfchase know the spunky SUV’s popularity is a credit to its combination of affordability, sophistication, and convenience.

The 2021 model year will bring some significant changes to the trim levels of the GMC Canyon, a small pickup truck. Just like its cousin, the Chevy Colorado, the Canyon will go on without its base trim, along with a few other key changes.
The 2020 GMC Canyon used to come in six trim levels: SL, Base Canyon, SLE, SLT, All Terrain, and Denali. The 2021 model will cut that down to four: The Elevation Standard, Elevation, AT4, and Denali. While the model is losing some potential combinations of cab size and bed lengths, there will still be 14 different combinations so you can build your ideal truck.
The first-ever Canyon AT4 is an off-road specialist that will come standard with a V6 engine capable of generating 308 horsepower. 31-inch Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac tires, Advanced Hill Descent Control, four-wheel drive with Rear Automatic Locking Differential, and a two-speed AutoTrac transfer case will make it a peerless beast both on and off the road.
If you want more torque, opt for the 2.8L Duramax® Turbo Diesel Engine and take advantage of its 369 pound-feet of twist. Luxury doesn’t take a backseat to the rugged capabilities of the 2021 Canyon AT4; heated front seats and a heated steering wheel will keep you comfortable on any road, in any temperature.
While we don’t know many more specific details about the upcoming 2021 Canyon, we hope to see you here at Sunrise Buick GMC at Wolfchase when it hits lots later this year.

If you’re anticipating the GMC Hummer EV, you’re not alone. Considering that revival rumors started circulating back in 2014, the suspense has been building for a while. While we don’t know everything about the model, we do have some details.
The GMC Hummer EV will have the capacity to go from 0-60 mph in about three seconds while yielding more than 1,000 horsepower and an estimated 11,500 lb-ft of axle torque. You can also expect it to have off-road capability, so you can transition from smooth roads to rougher ones when an adventurous mood strikes.
GMC has yet to reveal info about the battery range, charging time, or motors. But Motor1.com’s Jeff Perez predicts that the Hummer EV will have at least two electric motors as well as an all-wheel-drive system.
The Hummer EV’s appearance remains mostly a mystery. Though, a teaser image that the brand recently released gave us a glimpse of the model’s front end. The Hummer EV will incorporate a six-slat grille featuring each letter of the word “HUMMER.” Squared LED headlights and illumination add a touch of contemporary style.

Automotive brands spent nearly $5 billion across the board on TV ads in 2019, which helped to spread the word about the latest cars on the market. WardsAuto ranks these ads every year, and, not surprisingly, Buick had the most seen car commercial in terms of views for 2019. The “Mistaken Identity” spot made a massive impression among a variety of groups.
“Mistaken Identity” revolves around the line, “Buick’s new lineup is full of surprises,” and it shows several cases of mistaken identity as Buick vehicles are confused for traditional, uninspired models. Often left scratching their heads, individuals realize they’ve been looking at the wrong car the whole time after being informed that the vibrant, exciting ride in front of them is one of Buick’s refreshed models.
Many car shoppers may not recognize the new, eye-catching Buicks, one reason the ad had a strong impact on viewers. The “Mistaken Identity” ad alone generated 5.7 billion TV ad impressions, and it cost $31.7 million to make and market — about half as much as some of the ads released by other automakers.
If you want to get up close and personal with some of the thrilling new vehicles showcased in the commercial “Mistaken Identity,” swing by Sunrise Buick GMC at Wolfchase and see what all the fuss is about.
