Buick has been a cornerstone of the American auto industry ever since it first launched in 1903. For the last century, the brand has never once wavered in its commitment to providing drivers just like you with the very best. That devotion is clearly still alive and well in 2021, as the Buick Envision recently claimed the top spot for compact SUVs in the 2021 J.D. Power Dependability Study.
This year marks the 32nd time J.D. Power has performed the Vehicle Dependability Study. Its purpose is to highlight models with the fewest issues overall, as reported by drivers who’ve owned their cars for 3 years. The score is based on how many problems individuals experienced per 100 vehicles. The lower the score, the better the performance.
The Envision earned the coveted top spot in the highly competitive compact SUV segment, beating out the Toyota RAV4 and Subaru Forester. Buick came in fifth among all evaluated vehicles with a score of 100, crushing would-be competitors like Ford, INFINITI, and Volvo, which scored 130, 137, and 143, respectively. It also handily surpassed the industry average of 121 by a clean 21-point margin.
Now that the all-new 2021 Envision is finally on lots all over Colorado, we can’t help but assume that Buick’s winning streak is far from over. Once you give it a test drive at Transwest Buick GMC, you may have a hard time disagreeing.
If you’re in need of trailering tech that can stand up to the mountainous roads of Denver, Colorado, you’re in luck. New trailering technology is coming to the all-new 2021 GMC Sierra, and these upgrades are set to make towing an easier task than ever before. From your friends at Transwest Buick GMC, here’s a look at the trailering tech you can expect to see in the new Sierra.
Trailer Length Indicator
This new piece of tech enables you to maneuver your trailer with ease. Thanks to an overlay displayed on your center console screen, you’ll be able to see any vehicles that surround you and your trailer.
This feature tracks the distance between your vehicle and your trailer, alerting you if they grow too close to each other on the road. This technology is particularly useful when traveling down curvy mountain roads.
Rear Trailer View
Now enhanced with Rear Side View and the Trailer-Angle Indicator, this feature uses exterior cameras to monitor your trailer’s progress from the rear. Parking, backing up, navigating dangerous turns, and avoiding other vehicles can now be done with peace of mind.
Cargo Bed View
This enhanced feature gives you a view of your trailer’s bed, allowing you to keep watch on whatever you may be hauling. This technology also comes with Cargo Bed Zoom View and Bed Hitch Guidance.
This collection of brand-new features are available on both the 2021 GMC Sierra light-duty and heavy-duty trims. For an up-close look at these models and their trailering technology, schedule a test drive at Transwest Buick GMC today.

Although all specs haven’t been revealed yet, the 2021 Buick Envision will continue to deliver the smooth, powerful performance you expect from Buick. The 2021 model will feature a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a nine-speed automatic gearbox.

Inside, the 2021 Envision will be equipped with connectivity tech via Amazon Alexa, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, easily accessed via the first 10-inch touch screen from the automaker.

Continuing its legacy as one of America’s favorite family-focused SUVs, the 2021 GMC Yukon is poised to introduce some exciting updates when it launches later this year. As the first iteration of an all-new generation, this model will provide improved towing capacity, increased interior space, and heightened fuel economy. Here’s a preview of the 2021 GMC Yukon.
The 2021 Yukon’s available 5.3-liter V8 engine increases power output to 355 horsepower, resulting in a 20 percent increase in towing capacity over prior years. When properly equipped, the Yukon XL can tow a staggering 8,400 pounds. The improved power won’t translate to reduced efficiency, with even the most powerful engine boasting a modest increase in efficiency over the 2020 model.
Due in part to the fact that the 2021 GMC Yukon is six inches longer than the 2020 model, both passenger space and cargo volume are more plentiful than before. The third row has 10.1 inches of additional legroom in the standard model, and 12.3 inches in the XL. Meanwhile, you’ll have 23 more cubic feet of space for storage, adding up to a gigantic maximum of 144.7 cubic feet.
The 2021 GMC Yukon is shaping up to be the best version yet, and we will have it in stock soon at Transwest Buick GMC in Denver, Colorado. Currently, we still have the 2020 Yukon in stock, so get a great deal on it here before it’s gone.
