Typically, when we think of long-lasting vehicles, we think
of small, compact cars. The GMC Yukon and Yukon XL shatter this assumption,
however. Both vehicles were just recognized in a study featuring models that
lasted for 200,000 miles or more. The Yukon and Yukon XL are the largest SUVs
in the GMC lineup, offering tons of dependable power and capability that last
in the long run.
The study was performed by iSeeCars.com and determined the top 14 longest-lasting vehicles in America. To determine the list, iSeeCars.com evaluated approximately 14 million used cars sold in 2018 that were manufactured between 1981 and 2018. Remarkably, the GMC Yukon XL claimed the fourth spot on the list, and the GMC Yukon came in at number 8. While 4 percent of Yukon XL models surpass 200,000 miles, 2.8 percent of Yukon models do the same.
Such distinction was not reserved for only the GMC Yukon and
Yukon XL. In comparison to all vehicle brands sold in the states, GMC claimed
the third spot in longest-lasting vehicles overall, with 1.4 percent of GMC
models reaching 200,000 miles. Other GM vehicles were also heavily lauded in
the study, with the Chevy Suburban coming in second place and the Tahoe coming

The GMC Acadia three-row crossover will return in the 2020
model year with new, bolder styling, new powertrains with improved performance,
and better technology, making it a competitive SUV within its segment.

Infotainment System, which now lets drivers create a customized user profile
that remembers their various preferences, as well as new satellite navigation.

Recently, Chevrolet launched a brand-new comprehensive advertising campaign to support the launch of the all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado. Starting with a new 60-second TV commercial entitled, “A Little Bit Country, A Little Bit Rock n’ Roll,” the new ad highlights everything we love about the all-new 2019 Chevrolet Silverado: its rugged capability, roaring power, bold style, and undeniable fun.
Just like the
all-new Silverado, this ad was meticulously crafted to turn heads. According to
Paul Edwards, U.S. vice president of Chevrolet Marketing, the ad needed to be “bold,
engaging and comprehensive to break through the clutter while staying true to
the brand’s values and overall advertising approach.” Additionally, Edwards
says the campaign prioritizes spotlighting the “versatility and lifestyle that
comes with owning a pickup truck.”
The new Silverado
campaign isn’t limited to the small screen, either. The 2019 Chevrolet
Silverado will also feature on custom Amazon delivery boxes — an industry first
— custom magazine covers, on popular website homepages, on “Jimmy Kimmel
Live!”, and more.
comprehensive ad campaign is totally understandable, considering that the 2019
Chevrolet Silverado is the strongest, most powerful, most advanced Silverado
ever—and that’s saying something of a brand with more than a century-long
legacy of strength and reliability.
Put a little more Rock n’ Roll in your life by taking the 2019 Silverado for a test drive at Curry Auto Center.

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.
Although many drivers are turning to compact and crossover SUVs, sedans are still a staple of the automotive market. To prove sedans’ competitiveness and desirability, Chevrolet is updating its sedan offerings to be smarter, more stylish, and versatile.
For 2019, Chevrolet will be adding a sporty new RS trim to the Malibu lineup, making the midsize sedan fresh and desirable again.
Compared to other trims on the Malibu, the RS definitely looks sportier and more daring. Its visual package includes a black grille design alongside black bowtie emblems, a rear spoiler, dual-outlet exhaust, and sleek 18-inch machined aluminum wheels with gray pockets. The interior of the new Malibu RS features a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter as well as an advanced infotainment system with an 8-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility, and a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot.
The Malibu RS’s sporty look is backed by a sporty 1.5-liter turbo engine that delivers 163 horsepower, 184 lb-ft of torque, and peppy acceleration. If you’re looking for a slightly bolder driving experience, you can always opt for the 2.0-liter-engine model, which boasts more power.
The 2019 Malibu is refreshed from front to back, featuring modern design cues and equipment. The RS trim adds additional features to further elevate your driving experience and enjoyment behind the wheel. Learn more about it by contacting us at Curry Auto Center.

There is no denying America’s love for SUVs. In fact, we love them so much that Chevrolet is adding new models to the 2019 lineup for both the Tahoe and Suburban, called Premier Plus special editions.
Chevrolet is adding these models because of the popularity of its 6.2-liter V8 engine, which is currently available in a number of special edition packages including the 2018 Tahoe RST Performance Package and the 2019 Suburban RST Performance Package.
“Our customers have shown strong demand for both Tahoe and Suburban with the 6.2L V-8 option,” said Sandor Piszar, director of Chevrolet Trucks Marketing and Advertising. “Thirty-six percent of all Chevy full-size SUV special edition models are now sold with this engine. Premier Plus gives both Suburban and Tahoe customers another option to choose from with several added premium touches.”
In addition to a more powerful engine, the Premier Plus models will feature a Hydra-Matic 10-speed automatic transmission and Magnetic Ride Control with a performance calibration.
There will be additional upgrades to the styling as well. The exterior will have gold Chevrolet “bowtie” logos, chrome power steps and exhaust tip, and cross rails. Inside, you’ll find a head-up display, an 8-inch display cluster, and a standard 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot with a 12-month data plan.
