Buick Regal – Baker Motor Company – Charleston, SC

March 2, 2015

2015-buick-regal-v6Congratulations to the Buick Regal for being named among the top 10 picks of cars and SUVs by Consumer Reports. Here is what the product review and ratings magazine had to say about the sport sedan.

“Surprisingly agile, the Regal defies Buick’s brand stereotype. Because it’s an Opel underneath, it has that Teutonic ride control that provides a Europhile driving experience. Close your eyes, and you’ll think you’re driving an Audi—a very good Audi at that. The 259-hp, 2.0-liter turbo is sharply integrated with a six-speed automatic and available all-wheel drive, and it remains responsive across a linear power band. The IntelliLink infotainment system is intuitive. The value-for-money equation is strong. You can even get a Regal with a stick shift to bolster your sport sedan credentials. It may not be as luxurious as the German giants, but a well-equipped Regal delivers a lot for the money.”

GMC Adds Helpful Feature For Parents

February 27, 2015

Parents on Yukon, Yukon XL design team pushed for family-friendlWe all grew up hearing our parents tell us “We have eyes in the back of our head,” – well now they do, almost.  GMC is now including a parental extra/tool by adding conversation mirrors. A conversation mirror is a flip-down mirror designed for a quick look at the backseat happenings. And the GMC Yukon is the latest vehicle to add this to its features list, thanks to its mom design team.

This tool is designed for parents to be able to keep a better eye on kids while being safe drivers at the same time and not forcing them to turn around to the back seat, thus taking their eyes off the road.

GMC stated that about 30% of all Yukon customers are parents with children under the age of 16. Conversation mirrors will become the most popular family feature in the future due to the help and peace of mind it will provide parents.

G 500 4×4² – Mercedes-Benz – Innovation That Last

February 27, 2015

Mercedes revels in the idea of designing and selling profitable and bizarre SUVs that are just too rare and remarkable for anyone to imitate.  


Consider the G63 AMG.  The V-12 G65 AMG. And the insaniac 6×6.  Crafted with rough-and-tough military concepts that were based off R&D done years ago. 

However, the company released the test drive of their latest über-G, the wild 4×4² you see zooming through a challenging and unstable terrain.  Still a concept, but after the hype the video has created Mercedes-Benz is contemplating actually building the vehicle! 

And after watching this clip we’re hoping they do!
