2015 GMC Canyon handles everything you throw at it!

When General Motors first introduced the GMC Canyon, it expected for there to be a high demand—and it looks like the American carmaker was right. Since its introduction earlier this year, the GMC Canyon sales have quickly risen, making demand higher than ever—and causing a bit of a problem for GM. The American carmaker recently announced that it will be increasing its midsize pickup truck production at the Wentzville Assembly plant in Missouri, to keep up with the high demand.

General Motors is planning on adding as many as 1,000 more workers to the plant’s Saturday and Sunday shifts, helping create an additional 2,000 pickup trucks a month. This adjustment, along with reducing break time for employees, will make about 3,500 more vehicles a year.

So far, GM has delivered a combined 35,720 units of the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon from January through April alone. To find out why so many consumers are choosing to purchase the GMC Canyon, stop in to Paul Sur Buick GMC today!

Buick is known for offering top-level luxury without a premium price, so it comes as no surprise that the luxury American carmaker recently announced new base prices for the Buick Regal and Buick Verano. Both of these premium sedans will introduce a new base trim level, the 1SV, to offer more savings to those consumers that want unbeatable luxury at a budget price.

“We added this new base level to some models as a means of expanding the opportunity for more customers to experience Buick vehicles,” said Nick Richards, Buick spokesperson. “The addition of these trims will create an increased awareness and consideration of these vehicles when being compared to the competition.”

The Regal will be available in the 1SV trim level, starting at $27,065. This is a $2,925 decrease compared to the next trim level. Even though the price is lower, consumers will still get leather seats, but will have a slightly less powerful 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine without eAssist. The Buick Verano base price will see a significant $2,315 price drop compared to the next higher trim, also offering the humbler 2.4-liter engine.
