crossover SUV, according to Vehicle Satisfaction Award surveys counted
by Southern California-based market research firm AutoPacific.
The brand, category and product
winners were announced Thursday.
"The AutoPacific Vehicle Satisfaction
Award is an honor to receive and we are thrilled that the Acadia was
named top large crossover SUV by our owners," said Lisa Hutchinson,
director of marketing for GMC. "It is a special honor when our GMC
owners recognize our vehicles, and we are proud that six of our vehicles
rank in the top ten within their segment."
Other GMC receiving a top 10 ranking
within their segment include:

Premium Mid-Size Crossover SUV * GMC Sierra HD - Heavy Duty Pickup * GMC Sierra 1500 - Large Light Duty

In the past week, the first shipments of all new 2010
Buick Regal have been coming into New Jersey from Germany. And we're
pleased to hear that starting this fall, the Regal will be available
with flex-fuel compatibility. Although the first several months of Regal
production will all be powered by a gasoline-only version of General
Motors' normally aspirated 2.4-liter inline four.
Once the 2.0-liter
direct injected turbo four cylinder starts arriving in late August, both
engines will be able to run on either gasoline or E85 ethanol. The
turbocharged variant will be GM's first production E85-capable
turbocharged and direct injected engine. The engine was originally
developed for the new Saab 9-5, which uses the same Epsilon II platform
as the Regal, and GM decided to install it in the U.S.-spec Buick as
Federico, vehicle line executive for the global mid size platform,
combining direct injection and turbo charging will allow the new engine
to get much closer to the volumetric fuel efficiency of gasoline while
running on ethanol. Until now, normally aspirated flex-fuel engines
typically have gotten about 15 percent worse fuel efficiency while on
ethanol. The Regal engine should cut that deficit to the mid-single
digits and future versions should be just about even.
Here in the United
States, the majority of new car sales are financed, and very few people
will buy a car with cash. The exact opposite is true in China. Over
90% of new car sales are conducted for cash and that's quite a lot
considering that Buick dealers in Beijing, Shanghai, and other large
cities, typically sell over 2,000 cars a year. Another factor that's
different in China is the rate in which Buicks are sold. A Buick, on
average, will spend less than 20 days on a lot. An exception to that is
the Enclave. Because they're imported from the U.S., the Buick
Enclave is priced higher and it is only available by special order.
While I was browsing YouTube earlier this morning, I came across a Chinese advertisement for the 2011 Buick Regal. It's definitely a cool commercial and it shows off the Regal from multiple angles along with a clip of the Regal peeling out at a stop light. How cool is that?
When I first watched this clip, I noticed the badge on the front fender with the letter "T" in it. As a car guy?
The next step in
Buick's plan for world domination is a new small sedan based on the Opel
Astra called the Buick
Excelle. Following what's likely to be its debut for the Chinese
market later this month at the Beijing Motor Show, Buick plans to bring
the compact sedan to the United States in 2011.
Slotting beneath the Regal in
Buick's lineup, the new compact sedan will be based on General Motor's
Delta II architecture, the very same that will underpin the Chevrolet
Cruze and Volt. From the spy photos we can clearly see the new model
will sport the signature Buick waterfall grille, expressive headlights
inspired by the Regal and hood-mounted portholes.
Look for the new Buick model to be
produced at GM's Lordstown, Ohio facility. GM's Lordstown plant will
begin production of the Cruze in June 2010, with the Buick sedan likely
to follow about 12 to 18 months later. The compact Buick sedan should
hit dealers by early 2012 with a price tag at or below the $20,000 mark.
I was sitting with my wife last night when this commercial came on featuring Ed Whitacre CEO of GM. My first thought was finally Ed's showing so fire! I really think this a great commercial, I mean come on GM paid off the loans five years early. Check out the Video...
This morning, General Motors Chairman and CEO Ed
Whitacre confirmed that the company has paid back a total of $5.8
billion in federal loans a full five years ahead of schedule. Whitacre
attributed the company's ability to make the payment, with interest, to
its new strategy and the success of new models like the Buick
GM received some $50 billion in loans
from both the U.S. and Canadian governments, with the majority of those
funds converted into company stock. The remainder totaled over $8
billion owed to the U.S. and Canadian governments, all of which has now
been paid back less than a year after GM emerged from bankruptcy. The
news was announced at a press conference at the company's Fairfax,
Kansas manufacturing facility, which will soon add production of the
hot-selling Chevrolet Malibu, and was attended by Kansas Governor Mark
Parkinson and other members of government.
As it is, the federal government still
owns 60.8 percent of GM, which means that whenever the company issues
its IPO, the tax payers could easily get all of their money back.
