It looks like GMC
may be all the way back from the hard times of the US economy in 2007
with significant sales increases posted in March, April and May.
Officials attributed the sales boost to big jumps in sales for brand
leading trucks and crossover sport utility vehicles.

If you've ever owned a truck, chances are you're familiar with the myth that leaving your tailgate down can help save you money.
The idea is that when locked upright, the tailgate creates extra drag on the truck, decreasing gas efficiency. By lowering the tailgate, so the myth says, drivers can decrease drag on their vehicle, thus increasing their gas efficiency and saving cash in the process. But does this myth really hold...
General Motors was an early adopter of remote auto technology with the introduction of the OnStar system in 1995. Since then, OnStar has saved lives, helped apprehend car thieves and bailed out countless owners who had locked themselves out of their cars.
The innovation continued three years ago with the introduction of the auto industry's first mobile app.

If there is one kind of reputation which Buick seems to constantly strive for, it centers around producing higher-quality vehicles than its cousin brand Chevrolet. With that said, Buick doesn't take it too far and reach the refined segment that Cadillac has grown to become.
Much like the GMC Acadia and the Chevrolet Traverse, the 2013 Buick Enclave is capable of providing a number of seating configurations to complement the grand V6 engine, a...

Of all the remaining General Motors divisions, Buick has shown the most significant growth in terms of model discrepancy, marketing aggressiveness and successful target demographic focus shift. The vehicles themselves have transformed from being products conjuring up visions of great-grandfathers driving models from a bygone era to cool, trendy and downright awe-inspiring conveyances further supported...
Last year, GM's Buick Division entered the compact sedan competition in 2012 with the introduction of the Verano.
The 2013 Buick Verano is largely unchanged from the previous year, with a couple of notable exceptions.
For example, the Verano is now available with an optional 2.0 L turbocharged engine. This smallish four-cylinder power plant still packs a punch. It can generate up to 250 hp and take the Verano from zero to sixty...
Auto makers have been concerned with aerodynamics for almost a century. But when most people think about drag coefficients or sweeping curves it's an exotic sports car or a futuristic hybrid that comes to mind. The last thing that they would think of is a pickup truck. Pickups are associated with words like durable, utilitarian and workhorse. But the days of dollar a gallon gas are over, and to get the job done a...
Buick may be known today for its Regal sedan and Enclave SUV, but during the Second World War it produced a tank destroyer that would help Allied forces to victory in both the European and Pacific theaters. The M18 Hellcat moved over the battlefield at up to 60 mph, earning it the nickname of the "Hot rod of World War II".
The German advance through Europe had relied on Blitzkrieg, or lightning war, with tanks...
