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.

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. This headrest-mounted system offers an 8-inch screen and a DVD player, but if your passengers want to enjoy other types of media, it has options for that, too. 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.

Want to take your Acadia’s utility to the next level? Check out these accessories and more, available through Sunrise Buick GMC at Wolfchase in Memphis, Tennessee.

US News Praises GMC Terrain For Its Camping Capabilities

2021 GMC Terrain | Memphis, TN

When you’re prepping for an adventure into the great outdoors, you need a vehicle that can handle all your gear and deliver the performance you need for challenging terrains. The 2021 GMC Terrain is one of the 16 Best Cars for Camping in 2021, according to U.S. News & World Report.

“If you’re headed for the beach instead of the woods, the 2021 GMC Terrain has a fold-flat front passenger seat that can accommodate long items, like a surfboard. If you need that space for people, passengers will find the cabin has plenty of room to get comfortable in both rows,” according to U.S. News & World Report writer Kristen Hall-Geisler.

Modern tech

Even though you’re escaping the real world to decompress, you’ll appreciate the modern connectivity tech in the 2021 Terrain to help you get to your destination and re-connect when your trip is over. Smartphone integration is simple and seamless with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™.

Advanced safety

No matter where you’re headed, you’ll feel more confident behind the wheel of the GMC Terrain thanks to the GMC Pro Safety suite of safety tech. Under proper conditions, Forward Collision Alert alerts you to potential threats in front of you so you can avoid or minimize an accident. Automatic Emergency Braking will automatically engage the brakes to bolster your stopping power, under proper conditions.

Buick Reveals Pricing and Updates for 2022 Encore

2022 Buick Encore | Memphis, TN

The Buick Encore has a few notable updates for the 2022 model year. Here is a closer look at what you can expect in the well-equipped small SUV, which will be available later this summer at Sunrise Buick GMC at Wolfchase in Memphis, Tennessee.

The 2022 Buick Encore offers one trim level, Preferred, leaving the base trim option a thing of the past. The Encore, which continues to provide comfortable seating and space for five, boasts an MSRP of $25,795 when equipped with FWD, and $26, 415 when equipped with AWD.*

The updated Encore offers increased horsepower and torque ratings for a peppier ride and more enjoyable, responsive performance. The ECOTEC 1.4-liter turbo engine pairs to a six-speed automatic transmission to generate 155 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque. This is a horsepower increase of 17 and torque rating increase of 29 compared to the 2021 Buick Encore.

Other than these changes, the 2022 Buick Encore hits the market relatively unchanged, delivering you the impressive reliability, versatility, and comfort features you expect from the practical SUV.

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.

Boasting more than 20 miles of trails, Meeman-Shelby Forest State Park is located within 20 miles of Memphis. It offers a diverse array of trails to satisfy hikers of different skill levels.

Drive to These Crowd-Pleasing Takeout Places in Memphis

Takeout Places in Memphis | Memphis, TN

Memphis is known all across the country for its unique, exciting cuisine. But, sometimes, you just don’t feel like getting all dressed up spend the evening at a dine-in restaurant. Thankfully, there’s no shortage of outstanding takeout places in Memphis. Here are a few of our recommendations.

Central BBQ

If you live in Memphis, you know what good barbeque tastes like. So do the chefs at Central BBQ, which is located right on Central Avenue. Their meat is marinated for 24 hours, slow-smoked with hickory and pecan, and finished with a secret dry rub. All you have to do is hop in your Enclave, grab some great grub, and bring it back home for date night.

Gus’s World-Famous Fried Chicken

Sometimes, when restaurants advertise themselves as “world-famous,” they don’t have the credentials to back up the claim. Gus’s World-Famous Fried Chicken, on the other hand, has a surplus of bona fides. Its food is so delicious and memorable that it has been featured on multiple popular TV shows, including “Man v. Food” and “The Best Thing I Ever Ate.” That’s a pretty glowing endorsement.

Gibson’s Donuts

Great takeout food isn’t confined to entrees, and nothing will brighten up a family picnic or tailgate more than the moment you roll up in your Sierra 1500 with a box of delicious doughnuts in tow. And if you’re looking for the best confectionaries in Memphis, you go to Gibson’s. It’s no wonder that they’ve been thriving since 1967.

All of us at Sunrise Buick GMC at Wolfchase are incredibly proud to be a part of the Memphis community. If your Terrain — or any other GM vehicle — is due for maintenance, contact our service department so you can check out these exceptional takeout places safely.

Inside this spacious SUV, you’ll find French-stitched leather-appointed front seats and a heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel. The Terrain Denali’s 8-inch GMC Infotainment System comes with built-in Navigation as well as Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ capabilities.
