Along with the expected standard luxuries of the Canyon lineup, such as remote start and LED fog lamps, the AT4X also showcases exclusive badging. The Canyon AT4X is expected to release in the summer of 2022, just in time to upgrade your truck for the ultimate off-road experience.

Signs Your Car’s Alternator Needs to Be Replaced

The alternator is a crucial component of your vehicle. It’s responsible for keeping the battery charged so you can start your car, turn on the headlights, and use the infotainment system and other electronic features. Sometimes a vehicle’s alternator goes bad and needs to be replaced, and here are some of the warning signs to watch out for.

The Battery Warning Light Comes On

If the battery warning light on your dashboard activates, it could mean that your alternator is above or below its voltage limit — and unable to handle its normal duties.

Your Car Doesn’t Want to Start

If you try to start your vehicle and hear a clicking sound instead, this could be a sign that your alternator isn’t charging the battery like it should.

Lights and Electronics Aren’t Working Properly

Are your headlights too dim, too bright, or constantly flickering? A failing alternator could be to blame. If your power windows, radio, or other electronic features are working poorly, this could also indicate that the alternator isn’t supplying power the way it should.

Your Battery Is Dead

Your battery might just be dead because it’s old, but it could also be a symptom of a bad alternator. If your battery dies again right after a jump start, or if you’ve noticed the other warning signs mentioned in this blog post, alternator trouble is a likely explanation.

If you’re experiencing potential alternator trouble, don’t delay – make a service appointment with the experts here at Temecula Valley Buick GMC in Temecula Valley California. We’ll install a new alternator and get you back on the road as soon as possible.

GMC Sierra 1500 Adds Entry-Level Elevation Trim

A new trim level is on the way for the 2021 GMC Sierra 1500 pickup. Known as the entry-level Elevation, it’s shaping up to be a strong option if you’re looking for a full-size truck at a high-value price in Temecula Valley, California.

The Sierra lineup already includes a regular Elevation trim, but the new entry-level Elevation will be a distinct choice at what’s likely to be a lower price point.

The entry-level Elevation will be available in two bed/cab configurations: Double Cab/Standard Box 4WD and Crew Cab/Short Bed 4WD. Both of these layouts will only be available with an eight-speed automatic transmission and a 2.7-liter inline-four turbo engine that generates 310 horsepower and 348 lb-ft of torque.

As a value-oriented truck, the entry-level Elevation is likely to offer a smaller selection of standard features than the regular Elevation. Key standard features include large P275/60R20SL all-terrain blackwall tires and a 40/20/40 split-folding front seat. This trim will also receive two standard 120-volt power outlets: one mounted in the bed and one installed in the instrument panel.

We’ll have more details soon on this new trim level. In the meantime, visit us here at Temecula Valley Buick GMC to explore the other exciting options in the 2021 GMC Sierra 1500 lineup.

GM Named One of World’s Most Ethical Companies for 2021

2021 GMC Yukon | Temecula, CA

General Motors doesn’t just make great vehicles like the all-new 2021 Buick Envision and GMC Sierra 1500. It makes a difference, working toward the vision of a future with zero congestion, zero crashes, and zero emissions. For its aspirations and its actions, GM has once again been named one of Ethisphere’s World’s Most Ethical Companies.

By earning a place among the 2021 World’s Most Ethical Companies, GM achieves the honor for the second consecutive year. Though this year’s awards represent 47 different industries, General Motors is the lone representative from the auto industry.

According to Ethisphere CEO Timothy Erblich, GM was one of this year’s honorees because it demonstrated leadership during the challenging past year. In an effort to combat COVID-19, GM manufactured millions of face masks and 30,000 ventilators. GM also took a leading role in the fight against iniquity, committing $10 million to organizations fighting against racial injustice.

“While addressing the tough challenges of 2020, we saw companies lead – above all other institutions – on earning the trust of stakeholders through resilience and a commitment to ethics and integrity,” said Erblich. “The World’s Most Ethical Companies honorees continue to demonstrate an unwavering commitment to the highest values and positively impacting the communities they serve.”

Another key to GM being named one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies is its commitment to battling climate change. In addition to pledging to be carbon neutral by 2040, GM is committing $27 billion worldwide to the development of electrified and autonomous vehicles.

You’ll see the fruits of this ethical innovation soon at Temecula Valley Buick GMC in the form of new vehicles like the GMC HUMMER EV and the latest version of Super Cruise™ hands-free technology. Visit our showroom in Temecula Valley, California, to see more of what’s new with Buick and GMC.

The GMC Sierra Pickup Gained Market Share in 2020

2020 GMC Sierra 1500 | Temecula, CA

Last year was an unprecedented time for automakers and Americans alike, but we’ve made it into 2021 stronger than ever. Despite the tough times experienced by its contemporaries, GMC entered the new year with a big win for its flagship pickup.

According to market data revealed by Steve Hill, the Vice President of General Motors, GMC’s iconic Sierra pickup truck was one of only two trucks that actually gained market share during 2020. Meanwhile, major competitors saw large drops in sales drop, even as General Motors’ strong performance allowed it to become the highest-selling pickup manufacturer in America.

During 2020, over 250,000 GMC Sierra trucks were sold. This represents an 8.91 percent growth in sales from 2019. Altogether, the GMC Sierra’s market share in the United States increased from 9 percent to 11 percent in 2020.

The GMC Sierra’s big market share gain during a time when most other trucks saw drastic decreases is a testament to its quality. Industry-leading features like the six-function MultiPro tailgate, a first-in-class Head-Up Display, and durable carbon-fiber bed help give the pickup an edge over its competition.

If you want to see for yourself why the GMC Sierra defied the odds and gained market share during 2020, visit Temecula Valley GMC for a test drive today.

2022 GMC Sierra Denali to Feature Super Cruise

2020 GMC Sierra Denali | Temecula, CA

Sophistication is a given in the GMC Denali lineup, which is known for its unique, high-end designs, powerful engines, and advanced features. These models often showcase the latest in technology and performance, so it makes perfect sense to hear that the 2022 GMC Sierra Denali is on the list to be one of the very few, select vehicles to receive the Super Cruise hands-free driving technology.

As of now, there’s no technology that’s 100% autonomous, but the Super Cruise technology is about as close as it gets. Super Cruise works on over 200,000 miles of pre-mapped, divided highways in North America. When you’re behind the wheel of a 2022 Sierra Denali on one of these roads, and Super Cruise is turned on, you’ll be able to take your hands off of the steering wheel and your foot off of the acceleration.

Super Cruise works by adding on to driver-assist features that may already be familiar to you. It uses adaptive cruise control to manage the speed through braking and acceleration. A setup of cameras and sensors paired with GPS and LiDAR map data tell Super Cruise where it’s going.

Driver awareness is essential, even with this near-autonomous feature. Super Cruise maintains your attention on the road by using a camera mounted behind the wheel to ensure you’re watching the road. If not, Super Cruise will turn off.

If you can’t wait for the 2022 model year to get your hands on a shiny new GMC Sierra Denali, don’t hesitate to come check out our large selection at Temecula Valley Buick GMC, right here in Temecula Valley, California.

Check Out the New GMC Canyon AT4 Off-Road Edition

2021 GMC Canyon AT4 | Temecula, CA

GMC recently debuted the 2021 Canyon AT4 Off-Road Performance Edition. This new edition is better equipped to handle rough paths, trail obstacles, and the other challenges of going on off-roading adventures.

The AT4 Off-Road Performance Package includes performance front and mid skid plates to protect the truck’s lower radiator, steering gear, oil pan, and front differential when driving on rocky trails. The off-road rocker panel protector and spray-in bedliner further keep the truck safe and in good condition.

The special edition takes away the truck’s front air dam and adds a 1-inch suspension leveling kit. This allows the pickup to reach an impressive approach angle of roughly 30 degrees, which is more than a 35-percent improvement.

All-weather floor liners keep the cabin cleaner when traveling, while 17-inch gloss-Black aluminum wheels give the Canyon a more aggressive look. Carbon Black AT4 badges and a gloss Black performance exhaust tip make the truck stand out more on drives.

With or without the AT4 Off-Road Performance Package, the Canyon AT4 comes with 31-inch GoodYear® Wrangler DuraTrac® tires and the 308-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 engine. Its off-road-tuned suspension package and Advanced Hill Descent Control System also create comfortable and smooth rides.
