4 Years In a Row GMC Claims KBB 'Brand Image Award'

For over 90 years Kelley Blue Book has been producing vehicle evaluation information that consumers trust. One evaluation, in particular, is KBB.com's Brand Image Award. Winners of the Brand Image Award are based on consumer automotive perception data from Kelley Blue Book Strategic Insights’ Brand Watch™ study. Winners of the award score high on important factors that matter to new car shoppers, and have a positive perception among consumers. 

Over the past four years, GMC has dominated KBB's Brand Image Award. GMC has won the 2017 Brand Image Award; making it the fourth consecutive year for GMC to claim the prestigious award. 

KBB.com's executive editorial director, Jack Nerad, had the following to say about GMC's achievement, "GMC’s ‘Professional Grade’ ideology has struck a resonant chord with consumers, and that’s reflected in car buyers visiting Kelley Blue Book’s website, KBB.com, naming GMC 2017’s Most Refined Brand. The extra attention to design and detail found across GMC’s lineup has clearly resonated with American consumers."

Receiving the Most Refined Brand award for a fourth consecutive year reflects GMC’s commitment to our core brand pillars. Consumers appreciate GMC’s ability to deliver bold, capable and precisely crafted vehicles that fit their lifestyle. Tulsans, in particular, are flocking to GMC trucks; such as the GMC Canyon and GMC Sierra. These trucks sets the bar high with purposeful technology inside and out. 


Kelley Blue Book, in years past, has also acknowledged GMC's Denali sub-brand as the highest expression of premium vehicles, for continuing to elevate the brand’s overall perception among consumers. 

GMC's sister company, Buick, has recently released a premium sub-brand of their own called the Avenir. The Avenir sub-brand will represent the highest expression of Buick luxury; just like Denali has demonstrated with GMC. You can read more about the Avenir sub-brand here

First Look at the Avenir Sub-Brand, with 2018 Buick Enclave Avenir


We finally get a look at the new Avenir luxury sub-brand from Buick, with the release of the all-new 2018 Buick Enclave Buick Avenir. Buick announced the Avenir sub-brand last fall, after the release of the award-winning concept car; of which Avenir draws its name. Avenir stands for future, and from the looks at the new Enclave Avenir, the future looks bright for Buick; Evonik Acrylite bright! 

Debuting with the 2018 Buick Enclave, the new Avenir sub-brand represents the highest expression of Buick luxury. Avenir offers unique styling cues and an extensive set of standard features and premium materials throughout the vehicle. New and versatile functionality, interior spaciousness, and intuitive technologies build on the Enclave’s established popularity. 

Aside from the unique dark-tented, 3D mesh grille, pearl-nickel 20" wheels, and a more athletic appearance one of the most notable features on the Buick Avenir model - that will gradually transfer over to a full range of Avenir models - is the SUV's Evonik Acrylite head lamps. The Evonik Acrylite exterior lighting is a Buick-first and will illuminate the road ahead with the power of more than 100 LEDs. 

Why has Buick chosen the Enclave SUV to launch the new Avenir sub-brand? Buick says the Enclave embodies the essence of the brand. It’s a beacon for the modern, attainable luxury Buick stands for and is a natural place to launch Avenir. 

"Buick-first" is a term that you'll hear a lot in the near future. Not only is the new Avenir sub-brand something totally new from Buick, since early last year Buick has introduced seven new models: including the recently released Regal hatchback and Regal Wagon

By the fourth quarter of this year, Buick will have the freshest, most modern line-up of vehicles in the industry, with every model being less than 21 months old! Along with this fresh line-up of beautiful vehicles, Buick has maintained its tradition of excellence, and racked up a long list of highly desired awards and accolades; including Kelley Blue Book's most luxury brand award! 


Enclave Avenir highlights:
  • Available intelligent AWD with active twin-clutch rear differential and Buick-first switchable AWD help improve control and efficiency. 
  • Standard five-link rear suspension and available continuously variable real-time damping (CDC) offer a refined, isolated ride. 
  • A standard 3.6L V-6 engine with stop/start technology, Buick-estimated 302 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque is paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. 
  • Tow capacity of up to 5,000 pounds is more than enough to tow a typical 21-foot sport boat. 
  • Buick-first Evonik Acrylite lighting technology provides a distinctive light signature. 
  • Buick-first Rear Camera Mirror is standard on Avenir. Avenir-exclusive 3-dimensional mesh grille, badging, pearl nickel 20-inch aluminum wheels and luxurious interior materials are standard. 
  • Standard hands-free power-programmable liftgate with a Buick tri-shield logo illuminates the ground below the hidden sensor and power-folding third row. 
  • It accommodates seven passengers comfortably and offers more cargo volume behind the first row than the Acura MDX, Audi Q7 and Infiniti QX60. 
  • It has an all-new body structure for safety, strength and mass efficiency, plus 17 radar, camera and ultrasonic sensors when fully equipped. 
  • Avenir model comes standard with extensive active safety, connectivity and luxury features for a simple and convenient buying experience.

2017 Sierra & 2017 Canyon Earn KBB '2017 Best Resale Value Awards'

The cost of living seems to continually go up. Along with higher grocery and housing prices, Oklahomans also have to deal with paying some of the highest combined state and local sales taxes in the country. So when it comes to buying a new vehicle, Oklahomans tend to pay close attention to resale value. 

Choosing a vehicle with a good resale value can save you a significant amount of money, when it comes time to sell your old vehicle and upgrade to a new one. Lucky for Oklahomans, Ferguson Buick GMC offers two vehicles that have proven their worth well beyond that first day of ownership. 

The 2017 Canyon and 2017 Sierra have been recognized among the Top 10 in Kelley Blue Book’s '2017 Best Resale Value Awards'


The average new vehicle will be worth about 33% of its original sticker price after 60 months. The 2017 GMC Canyon is projected to have a 47.2% resale value (after 60 months), while the 2017 GMC Sierra is projected to have a 47.5% resale value (after 60 months). That equates to quite a bit of savings over to the competition! Kelley Blue Book based these figures on how much value they project each 2017 model year vehicle to keep after five years on the road. 

This isn't the first time the GMC Sierra and GMC Canyon have been awarded the 'KBB Best Resale Value Award'. Both trucks have earned the accolade in years past. This recognition provides to our Tulsa-area customers they’ve made a smart choice investing in GMC's line of trucks. GMC's commitment to professional grade is winning over more and more customers.

Meet the all-new 2018 GMC Terrain!

The GMC Terrain we know and love debuted in 2009, and has gone relatively unchanged since then--until now. Ladies and gentlemen, meet the all-new 2018 GMC Terrain! It's lighter and leaner, and sports a new range of fuel-efficient turbocharged engines -- including a diesel option. Yes, you read that correct, a diesel Terrain! 


We'll get the big news out of the way. The 2018 Terrain is an all-new compact SUV. Simply put, "all-new" means the Terrain has been completely redesigned! GMC has elevated the Terrain's design to a major art form - from attention grabbing to unforgettable in every detail. The new design, with a "floating-roof look," creates the perfect integration of beauty and purpose. It shatters the status quo, and will no doubt be a popular choice for our Tulsa-area shoppers. 

The new 2018 Terrain's shape was refined within GMC's high-tech wind tunnel. Which means every curve and angle on compact SUV was carefully sculpted to optimize fuel-efficiency with the least amount of drag. These changes, coupled with the new fuel-efficient turbocharged engines, will do wonders for gas mileage. 

The all-new 2018 Terrain will offer three 4-cylinder turbocharged engines - a 1.5L gas, 2.0L gas, and 1.6L Turbo Diesel - all of which generate both power and efficiency. Transferring this performance to the road is a new 9-speed automatic transmission for the gas engines and a new 6-speed automatic transmission for the Turbo Diesel. We're eager to see how our Oklahoma drivers respond to the new engine options! 


To meet the varied demands of your life, the 2018 Terrain can go from comfortably accommodating passengers to quickly and easily storing cargo. Whether you live the country life or city life, the redesigned 2018 GMC Terrain will bring a new joy to your drive. 

Ferguson Buick GMC is expecting the new 2018 Terrain to arrive on at our Broken Arrow dealership in late summer 2017. To learn more about our lineup of new GMC models, contact us and we'll happily set you up with a test drive.
