Buick Marketplace App Adds Yelp Reservations

The Marketplace app in new Buick models will now make dining out easier with the addition of Yelp Reservations.

The Marketplace app is a game-changing, useful tool now included in new GM infotainment systems. It makes time-consuming roadside purchases faster and easier by allowing you to shop from within your car. With the Marketplace app, you can use your vehicle’s infotainment display to make purchases such as gas and coffee from the comfort of your driver’s seat.

The Marketplace already offers a long list of participating merchants, including a number of gas stations and restaurants. With the addition of Yelp Reservations, the list of venues available from your vehicles has expanded even more. With just a few taps on its infotainment display, Buick Marketplace can find an appropriate restaurant and book your table through Yelp.

A variety of customizable search options will help you narrow down your dining destination by search area and cuisine type. It can even provide ratings for the venue from Yelp’s massive repository of customer reviews. Once you’ve found the perfect dining location, simply select the details for the reservation, and the Marketplace app takes care of the rest.

Follow your Buick’s navigation to your destination, where your reserved table will be waiting for you. If you have special requests, or if you just prefer talk in person, the Marketplace app and Yelp can connect you directly to the restaurant’s phone number.

Curry Auto Center has many new Buick models in stock that feature the Marketplace app. Come visit us to see how it works.

What Is the Envision GX and Why Is It Important?

Exciting news is stirring behind the scenes at Buick. With the filing of a new trademarked name in the USA in late September, the automaker projects its intentions to roll out a new, exciting trim option for the Buick Envision: the Envision GX.

 

What the new Envision GX trim will bring to this fantastic vehicle on top of its current offerings is yet to be seen. The Buick Envision crossover SUV currently available in the United States offers front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive configurations as well as multiple engine options. It’s a luxurious ride packed with standard and available features, so we’re not sure how Buick could improve the Envision to make it more of a segment titan than it already is.

 

Fans of Buick may recognize the GX moniker from the Buick Excelle GX, a wagon variant of the Excelle available overseas. It is unlikely that the Envision will receive a wagon variant here in the U.S., so the exact details of what the trim will include is shrouded in mystery.

 

Whatever the Envision GX is, we will have it in stock at Curry Auto Center when it arrives at dealerships in the future. Until then, check out our selection of other Buick vehicles.
