Winter presents some of the most dangerous and difficult road conditions that drivers face, making driving in the wintertime a stressful endeavor. To feel more confident behind the wheel during the cold months, you should add OnStar® safety and security coverage to your Chevy or Buick vehicle, ensuring that you’re covered for whatever you may need on the road.
OnStar® safety and security
OnStar® coverage gives you both access to critical services
while on the road as well as peace of mind. While driving in the snow, freezing
rain, and/or on icy roads, services such as Automatic Crash Response, Roadside
Assistance, Emergency Services, Crisis Assist, and easy push-button access to
an OnStar® advisor make you feel like you have help at the ready if you need it.
Whether your car’s battery fails or you require emergency services, OnStar®
will provide you with whatever help you need. You’ll even be grateful for
OnStar®’s Turn-by-Turn Navigation service, which makes for easy navigation so
you can focus on driving.
Eligibility and enrollment
OnStar® coverage is available on any eligible and properly-equipped Chevrolet or Buick vehicle from the 2006 model year or newer. To enroll, either push the blue OnStar® button in your vehicle and inform the OnStar advisor that you’d like to enroll or visit activate.onstar.com.
If you’ve been keeping an eye on what’s new in the world of Buick and Chevrolet, you’ve heard of the new Buick Avenir trim level. The high-end configuration made its debut this year in the new 2018 Buick Enclave mid-size SUV. The luxury of the Avenir sits above all other trim levels in the Buick lineup, adding elegant details and advanced technology. Now, the Avenir will make its second appearance, this time on the 2018 Buick LaCrosse.
The full-size, luxurious Buick LaCrosse will become even more elegant with the addition of Avenir features. The vehicle will make a statement upon arrival with a unique mesh grille with chrome wings, 19-inch Pearl Nickel wheels, a Chestnut colored interior cabin, and embroidered first-row headrests. The Buick LaCrosse Avenir will also come with built-in navigation, a Bose sound system, and a panoramic moonroof. It will be powered by a 310-horsepower V6 engine.
It made sense for Buick to choose the LaCrosse as its next model for the Avenir trim. According the Buick, when buyers shop for a LaCrosse, 9 out of 10 already opt for one of the higher trim levels. With the introduction of the LaCrosse Avenir, it seems likely that buyers will happily embrace that next level of luxury.
The 2018 Avenir is expected to arrive at dealerships like Bill Roberts Chevy Buick early 2018. Follow our blog for future Buick LaCrosse Avenir news.
The super-efficient 2017 Chevrolet Bolt isn’t even available throughout the entire country yet, but according to reports, drivers have already covered more than 4.5 million miles with their Chevy Bolt vehicles, which adds up to some serious savings.
This means that Chevy Bolt drivers have saved an estimated 175,000 gallons of gasoline, compared to 4.5 million miles driven in a standard, gasoline-powered vehicle that gets 26 miles per gallon, an average-to-good rate.
Of course, the Chevrolet Bolt is entirely electric, able to travel up to 238 miles on a full charge without running out of power. That’s way more than an average driver uses in a single day, meaning most drivers never run out of power.
By this summer, the 2017 Chevy Bolt is scheduled to be available nationwide—as opposed to now, when less than ten states have the vehicle for sale. And if Bolt drivers have already saved so much gasoline, think about how much will be saved by this time next year!
If you would like to learn more about the incredible, energy-saving Chevrolet Bolt, or any other Chevrolet model, don’t hesitate to give us a call or stop by anytime at Bill Roberts Chevrolet.
