Buick Enclave ST Impresses Forbes Magazine

Buick Enclave | Eastland, TX

The largest Buick SUV is already impressing for 2020. The Enclave’s new ST (Sport Touring) model was recently featured in an article in Forbes magazine. Kyle Edward of Forbes noted “the Enclave is one of the best-looking new Buicks on the road today.”

One unique feature that makes the new generation of Enclave stand out to Forbes is the unmistakable wraparound headlights. As Edward points out, they give the Enclave a “more youthful and sporty appearance.”

While the new Enclave may look speedier and more agile, there are no changes under the hood between the generations of Buick SUVs. There is only one engine option — though a fine one — in the 3.6-liter V6 generating 310 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque. Edward boasts that the Enclave goes from zero-60 mph in around 6.9 seconds.

For tech, the Enclave will still offer both Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. Buick has added a new HD rear vision camera and HD surround vision systems and gives their car buyers the option to purchase one of their amazing digital rear-view mirror safety features.

The ST package is affordably priced and makes a great addition to an Enclave purchased at Blake Fulenwider.

GMC Honors Veterans at Heroes Gala

GMC honors veteransGeneral Motors has long been a supporter of service men and women of the U.S. Military. Recently, GMC and the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation recognized some of bravest veterans at the 6th annual Honoring Our Heroes Gala to benefit the Smart Home Program and the Fallen and Wounded Soldiers Fund of Michigan.

“GMC’s Professional Grade identity is a perfect fit for these organizations because it is the same philosophy these veterans live by day in and day out,” said GMC Marketing Director Rich Latek. “This mindset drives us to strengthen our efforts and help provide our veterans the state-of-the-art Smart Homes they need to achieve independent lives.”

The Smart Home Program builds custom-designed, mortgage-free homes for some of the most catastrophically injured service members in our country. The Tunnel to Towers foundation has pledged to build at least 200 smart homes for these brave men and women.

Along with this program, GMC honors veterans in a variety of ways. Nationwide, the unemployment rate for vets is 3.7%. In Michigan, it is under 3.5%, thanks to companies like GM, which currently employs about 5,000 veterans. GM has also offered a military discount program for years and will extend it to First Responders starting in June.

General Motors is dedicated to supporting America’s veterans. To learn more about the services and discounts offered for military service members, stop by Fullen Motor Company.
