Buick announced that it is taking some of the sleek and futuristic design cues for the new LaCrosse from the Avenir concept model. The exterior is getting a complete redesign, from bumper to bumper. We can’t wait to see this new model in action.

According to USA Today, the Avenir premiered at several auto shows this year, and draws from several classic Buick designs. In fact, the model steals some looks from the 1954 Wildcat II, another concept model, which will give the Buick LaCrosse’s exterior design a unique retro look.

“The Avenir concept shattered expectations of what a Buick could be and the 2017 LaCrosse promises to do the same,” says Duncan Aldred, vice president of Buick. “Its expressive design represents a break from convention and highlights the progressiveness in all new Buick models.”

Although there’s no official plan yet, Buick said that this look will be use on the LaCrosse by 2017, and would spread to other models in the lineup by 2018. This is just one more reason Buick is an industry leader when it comes to things like styling.

The GMC Sierra HD lineup was already new and improved from the 2015 model year and now the manufacturer is looking to spoil drivers. The 2016 GMC Sierra HD lineup will feature more colors and headlights, as well as new technology. With the new tech, hauling will be much easier than in previous years.

New technology includes the impressive and helpful Active Steering Assist. Available on double cab and crew cab models, this power steering system uses electronic controls to improve traction and stability.

Active Steering Assist will also improve the pickup’s responsiveness and feel of steering. Not available on the base or regular cab models, you’ll have to step up a model to get this new tech.

A new Gooseneck/Fifth Wheel Trailering Prep Package is also available on the 2016 GMC Sierra HD. It will give the pickup more capability to tow larger trailers than ever before.

New HID (High-intensity Discharge) projector-beam headlights come standard on all models. It features GMC’s LED lighting at no extra cost.

New exterior colors include Crimson Red Tintcoat, Cardinal Red, Deep Garnet Metallic, and Mahogany Metallic.
