The 2017 GMC Acadia

2017 GMC Acadia - Crossover SUV
New SUV purchases are increasing year over year in Canada. Cargo space, comfort, and powerful performance have always belonged to SUVs. However, the fuel efficiency of those vehicles has long held them back. But now, that is beginning to change.

Cargo & Comfort

The 2017 GMC Acadia’s third-row premium seating with easy access allows seven passengers to fit comfortably. Active noise cancellation and french-stitched seats keep the cabin quiet and comfortable, while the standard rear-vision camera provides dynamic guidelines for parking.

In every 2017 Acadia, you also get the following standard features:

  • OnStar with 4G LTE and Built-In Wi-Fi Hotspot
  • Available Bose Premium 8-Speaker System
  • Standard Rear Vision Camera
  • Enhanced Second-Row Smart Slide® Seats

Performance

Snow, ice, rain, and Canadian potholes – the demands placed on the average vehicle are extreme. But the Acadia has a solution for them all. An available 3.6L V6 engine with Active Fuel Management and 310 horsepower can boss the road. Meanwhile, the standard drive mode selector shifts to match the conditions. FWD, AWD, Off-Road, Snow, and Sport are all available for Acadia drivers. And, despite its size and strength, the Acadia still gets remarkable fuel economy. In the city, it’s rated for 11L/100km. For comparison, the Honda Pilot and Ford Explorer get 12.4 and 13.9 litres, respectively. The Acadia’s fuel economy is boosted by the Auto Stop/Start technology in its engine.

Mid-size SUVs are one of the most popular vehicle categories in Canada. They can do a lot of things well, but drivers often compromise on one aspect of performance, or another. With the Acadia, there’s no need. You can get ample interior space, comfort, and professional-grade performance.

Our inventory holds over 35 GMC Acadias, and you’ll have to drive one to understand everything this SUV has to offer. Check out the inventory by clicking the button below and let us know how we can help get you driving one of GM’s most versatile vehicles.

The Driver’s Enclave

2017 Buick Enclave Luxury SUV
2017 Buick Enclave Luxury SUV, experience the drive.

According to the most recent census, the average Canadian spends 50 minutes driving to and from work each day. That’s almost enough time to complete a census. Even before factoring in all the evening and weekend trips demanded by your schedule, 50 minutes is a long time. And a prairie driver isn’t the “average Canadian.” If you consider the Alberta-sized potholes and icy roads, suddenly your 50 minute commute looks a bit different from one in Vancouver or Toronto. When you’re spending so much time in your SUV, fighting through the elements, you deserve comfort and driving pleasure.

Sanctuary for Drivers

In the 2017 Enclave, Buick’s full-sized, luxury SUV, you can tune out the noise of the world around you. With QuietTuning, triple door seals, and acoustic-laminated glass, the only sound in the cabin will come from the Bose sound system. Also, the Enclave comes with an 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with available perforated leather seats and available captain’s chairs in the second row. Considering it’s probably more comfortable than your couch, you won’t feel too bad if you’re spending more time in your SUV than the average Canadian.

Power and Style Are Just a Bonus

The sanctuary created for the driver and passengers carefully conceals the 3.6L, 288 horsepower engine beneath the hood. You may not hear it roaring, and your passengers won’t notice it with dual-flow suspension dampers, but you’ll feel it underneath your foot. On the outside, the fluid profile of the Enclave reflects its power and agility, without revealing that it holds three spacious rows of seating.

As in all Buicks, luxury features come standard:

  • OnStar 4G LTE and Wi-Fi Hotspot
  • Heated steering wheel
  • Rear Park Assist
  • Side Blind Zone Alert with Rear Cross Traffic Alert
  • And much more.

You spend time in your car. You may as well spend it wisely.

Capital Holiday Spirit

The holiday season is closing in on us at high speed, everyone. Christmas shopping has officially commenced, even for procrastinators, and soon the sweet smell of holiday baking will fill many homes. This year, Capital GMC Buick would like to encourage all of you to make a difference in someone’s life this holiday season. What can you do? Well, there are many different charities and food banks that need volunteers and financial assistance this holiday season and there are a number of ways for you to get involved:

  • Donate food to the food bank, a family in need, or the Christmas Bureau of Edmonton
  • Volunteer at the food bank or a similar foundation
  • Help out your local animal shelter, children’s hospital, or retirement home to bring a little holiday cheer to the animals and people there

Unfortunately, not everyone has someone to spend the holidays with. And some families, regrettably, aren’t able to afford it at all. But people can be pretty amazing. Statistics Canada shows that 12.7 million Canadians, aged 15 and over, volunteered through a group or organization in 2013. Hopefully we can make that number grow!

We’re all very excited, and we hope the rest of you will join us in showing our holiday spirit this year. Together, we can make a difference.

All-Season vs. Winter Tires

Capital Ford Lincoln Regina

It’s that time of year again. Ice and snow are slowing traffic down and vehicles continue to hit the ditch! Yes, that dreaded -40 weather is here and it has us all dreaming of escaping to a Mexican. Sadly, we can’t run away all winter to an exotic location to keep away from the freezing cold but we can make it a little easier on us. Getting in an accident in our winter months can be dangerous and sometimes fatal so they best way to keep us away from the ditch and away from sliding into someone is by getting great tires for the cold. The debate for as long as i can remember has always been Winter or All-Season tires. Here’s a few details about each tire to help you choose the best tire for you.

All-Season

All season tires provide grip in wet/snowy conditions. They also allow you have stable handling and even tread wear. Experts now call all-seasons “three-season tires”. Although they do fairly well in the winter they by far lack compared to a winter tire. All-seasons are meant more for the beginning signs of winter like light snow fall and slush, but when it comes to ice and get through deep snow they become almost useless.

 

Winter tires

Winter tires excel in snow and ice. These tires are meant to perform in snow, ice, slush, sleet and cold but dry weather. The reason why winter tires do so well compared to all-season or summer tires is because of the tread and material they are made out of. The special design allows for the tires to travel through snow with ease and the material is a soft rubber material which expands in the cold for better grip. The tread also reduces the snow build up and allows for the driver to be more confident on the road.

 

It’s safe to say if you live in Alberta you should have winter tires on your vehicle by the time the winter months hit. Better traction means less accidents and that’s something everyone likes to hear!

Why Your Car Hates Winter as Much as You

Why your car hates winter

 

Winter can be as hard on your vehicle as it is on you, even if the signs are a little less obvious (your truck can’t cry in front of the fireplace, clinging to a coffee mug). Here are a few reasons winter is tough on vehicles, and ways that you can help.

Winter Tire Wear

Living in Saskatchewan, the primary reason for switching to winter tires is obvious: it’s better to stay on the road than slide off of it like a shuffleboard. But, even for experienced drivers who choose to leave their summer tires on, cold weather can be costly. When the temperature falls, even 7o can do it, accelerated tire-wear will begin to show on your summer set. Unlike more flexible winter tires, summer tires are built to withstand heat, not salt, sand, and ice. In the long run, using one set of tires will not save you money because you’ll be replacing them more often.

Frozen Fuel Lines

The sound of an engine failing to turn over might be the seasonal anthem of Saskatchewan winters. To make sure their vehicles start every day, most drivers know to plug in their block heater overnight and to keep their battery fully charged by avoiding short trips. One problem drivers might not be aware of is a frozen fuel line. In sub-zero temperatures, moisture-rich air in the gas tank, mixed with fuel, can freeze. When the freezing occurs along the fuel line, it becomes impossible to start the vehicle. Keeping the gas tank full helps prevent this problem by limiting the amount of moisture in the gas tank. Plus, having plenty of fuel ensures you never get stranded in the cold!

Hold the Salt

Obviously, we’re grateful when city crews spread salt and sand around major roadways. However, the material can be as hard on your car as it is on the ice. In particular, as it’s sprayed up by your tires, salt will damage the exterior of your vehicle. The salt used on the road lowers the freezing point of water to prevent the formation of ice. But this property also means that salt can extremely corrosive, and promote rust with prolonged exposure. Underneath your vehicle, rust damage can lead to costly fluid leaks. On the exterior, rust damage is unsightly and will hurt the resale value of your vehicle. In order to combat rust-damage, all you need to do is wash your vehicle monthly in winter – just make sure you don’t freeze your doors shut!

Simple Tips for a Cleaner Car

Capital GMC Buick Edmonton

  1. Don’t Eat In It

One huge contribution to cars being dirty is food. Leftover wrappers, food that’s fallen, greasy fingers and crumbs! You may not think you’re a messy eater but you’ll soon start to find all of these on your floor, tight creases and seats. Now, it’s hard to say don’t eat in your car, but it’s something to start being a lot more aware of. Try keeping your road snacks to a minimum and vacuum your car more often.

  1. Wax

Now it might sound tedious, but waxing your car occasionally can really pay off. If you spend a little more time after washing your car by waxing, future washes become easier and so does your waxing skills will improve.

  1. Knock Your Shoes

Slush and snow can really make a car messy quick. Make sure you always kick your shoes off before getting inside. It won’t eliminate everything but it will help keep it to a minimum.

  1. Clean Up After Yourself

One of the simplest things you can to keep your car clean is grabbing your garbage right away! If you receipts lying around, gum wrappers in your cup holder and half your closet in the backseat, you’ve just created a war zone. A good habit to start would be to grab something every time you get out. If you got a bunch of wrappers in your door cubby, grab them and throw them into the first garbage you see. Simple things like this will tidy up your vehicle and are super quick to do.

  1. Trash Bin

Another simple hack to have in your car is a little garbage. This allows you to throw everything in one spot and keeps you from tossing things everywhere thinking you’ll remember it later.

  1. Make It A Routine

It’s hard to designate time to clean your car when you have a busy lifestyle, but by simply setting aside a half hour a week or even a month can really help. On a Sunday morning take a quick walk around your car and grab the garbage you have laying around, give you dash a quick dust or vacuum the interior. If you decide to try and tackle it weekly you can decide to vacuum maybe once a month and so on for the rest.
