How the 2020 GMC Yukon and Acadia Differ

The 2020 GMC Yukon and Acadia are luxurious options for large families. The sizeable SUVS are both comfortable and sophisticated options, though there are some key differences that can help you select the model that can best suit your needs.

Interior features

The midsize Acadia can seat up to seven passengers in its cabin, while the full-size Yukon can hold up to nine passengers. In the Acadia, you can fold down the second and third rows to get 79 cubic feet of cargo volume. The Yukon offers more cargo volume behind the first row with 94.7 cubic feet of space.  

Both of these models have cozy cabins with standard amenities, like tri-zone automatic climate control and 4G LTE Wi-Fi® hotspot capabilities. However, the base trim of the Acadia comes standard with different technologies, such as Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, which are not available on the base trim of the Yukon.

Powertrain lineup

As the larger of the two vehicles, the Yukon offers more powerful powertrains, the most impressive being the 6.2-liter EcoTec3 V8, which delivers 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque.

The Acadia gives you three engine options so you are better able to find the right combination of power and efficiency for the SUV. Its most powerful engine is the 3.6-liter V6, which produces 310 horsepower and 271 lb-ft of torque.

If you have a larger family in need of more space and power, the 2020 GMC Yukon is a great option. The 2020 GMC Acadia is ideal for families in need of less space and wanting more technologies. Check out both SUVs when you visit Curry Auto Center.

GMC Yukon Recognized on List of Longest-Lasting Vehicles

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 in sixth.

First Look at the 2020 GMC Acadia, Coming this Fall

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.

Outside, the 2020 Acadia has been redesigned with more rugged styling, including a new grille with sharper lines and LED headlights. This updated look brings the Acadia more in line with the rest of the GMC lineup and reflects its impressive capabilities.

The new Acadia will be available at four trim levels, the highest of which is the luxury Denali trim available across the GMC lineup. The trim levels offer diverse capabilities, like the AT4 trim designed for off-roading, but they all pack smart features.

For instance, the Acadia is equipped with an upgraded GMC Infotainment System, which now lets drivers create a customized user profile that remembers their various preferences, as well as new satellite navigation. The new Acadia will also offer wireless charging and a camera with higher definition than ever.

Replacing the old six-speed automatic transmission is a new nine-speed, which is paired with all engine options, including the new 2.0-liter turbocharged engine with 230 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. The 2020 GMC Acadia keeps its standard 2.5-liter I-4 engine and the available 3.6-liter V6.

2019 Chevrolet Blazer at the Chicago Auto Show

The 2019 Chevrolet Blazer has been making waves with its sleek styling, luxurious interior, and premium amenities. The Chevrolet Blazer turned heads and dropped jaws at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show not long ago.

The all-new Chevrolet Blazer embodies impressive performance and innovative systems. The base model will feature a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that generates 193 horsepower. An available 3.6-liter V6 engine generates 305 horsepower. Both engine options pair with a nine-speed automatic transmission.

The sheer styling of the Chevrolet Blazer sets it apart on the road. Sleek curves, steep character lines, and an aggressive front end create an image of pure athleticism. Inside, seating for five passengers, available leather upholstery, and available heated seats create a luxurious experience.

Drivers who value technology will enjoy every minute inside the 2019 Chevrolet Blazer. Smartphone connectivity systems include Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. By connecting a compatible smartphone to the Chevrolet Blazer, drivers can play their own music, access navigation, and send hands-free texts. An available 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot provides internet connectivity for up to seven devices.

In terms of safety, the Chevrolet Blazer excels. Advanced systems — like a Rear Camera Mirror, Pedestrian Detection, and Forward Collision Warning — are readily available.

New Chevrolet “A Little Big Country, A Little Bit Rock n’ Roll” Ad Campaign Highlights Everything We Love About the New 2019 Chevrolet Silverado

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.

Such a 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.

Popular Chevrolet Accessories Every Owner Should Have

Chevrolet vehicles come stocked with plenty of standard amenities, but you can make each model better by adding additional equipment. Check out these popular Chevrolet accessories that are worth the investment.

Illuminated Grille Bowtie

Setting your Chevrolet Silverado 1500 apart from other trucks is as easy as adding an illuminated grille bowtie emblem. The black emblem comes surrounded by a light-blue outline. The emblem can withstand temperatures well below zero degrees and above 100 degrees. It’s also 100-percent water-resistant and comes backed by a 12-month/12,000-mile warranty.

Under-Seat Storage Organizer

Expand the storage options in your Chevrolet Silverado 1500 with convenient under-seat compartments. Keeping all your gear, tools, and accessories neat and tidy is as easy as installing a storage organizer. With the organizer, you can conveniently take unused space and make it into a practical place for holding clutter.

Jet Black Floor Mats with Red Stitching

The 2019 Chevrolet Camaro is a lean, mean adrenaline-pumping machine, and you can add a custom touch to the muscle car. Jet black carpeted floor mats with adrenaline red stitching and Camaro script add upscale intensity to the Camaro’s interior. The floor mats help prevent dirt, water, salt, and other debris from wearing out the interior floors. This accessory comes with a 12-month/12,000-mile warranty.

We have a large selection of official Chevrolet accessories here at Curry Auto Center. Contact us if you’d like to purchase and install some personalized touches in your vehicle.

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.
