2014 Buick Regal GS AWD

2014 Buick Regal offers all-weather all-wheel-drive

Along with the technology, safety, and styling enhancements offered on the redesigned Buick Regal and Regal GS, is the newly available advanced all-wheel-drive.

“Living in the Snowbelt, Corry, Erie, Warren and Jamestown, NY drivers, associate all-wheel-drive vehicles with wintery weather, the Regal’s on-demand automatic AWD system is designed to help provide better control in all weather and road conditions, including dry surfaces” said Robert Crotty of Crotty Chevrolet Buick.

Using a system that can distribute power both front to rear and side to side, the Regal is able to shift torque to the wheels based on vehicle data and driver input. When trekking through snow and icy conditions better control is achieved through improved traction and stability with drive to all four wheels.

2014 Buick Lineup Offers Active Safety Suite

Advanced safety technologies available on all five Buick models

Every 2014 Buick model – Verano, Regal, LaCrosse, Encore and Enclave – will be offered with a suite of available active safety systems that watch the front, side and rear of the vehicle to help prevent crashes.

Buick will be the only brand in the industry to offer Forward Collision Alert, Lane Departure Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Side Blind Zone Warning, and a Rear Vision Camera on every vehicle.

Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning are a pair of technologies that use a single forward-looking camera to read traffic and lane markers on the road ahead. Visual warnings and audible tones alert the driver to unsignaled lane changes or a slowed vehicle.

Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Side Blind Zone Warning use radar to watch spots the driver may not see – and provide visible and audible warnings to help prevent collisions.

When the vehicle is in reverse and the Rear Vision Camera is active, Rear Cross Traffic Alert will flash a red icon and directional arrow if another vehicle is approaching from either side, which is especially useful backing out of a tight driveway or parking space in a busy lot.

Every 2014 Chevrolet and Buick model offered by Crotty Chevrolet Buick will be covered by a new maintenance program that includes certain scheduled maintenance services for two years or 24,000 miles, whichever occurs first.

For most 2014 vehicles, Crotty Chevrolet Buick will complete an oil and filter change, four-wheel tire rotation, and conduct a 27-point vehicle inspection for owners under this program in accordance with their vehicle Owner’s Manual maintenance schedule and oil life monitoring system.

“We have award-winning products filling our showroom and top-rated customer service,” said Robert Crotty of Crotty Chevrolet Buick. “Adding two years of scheduled maintenance for every vehicle shows we are dedicated to the best ownership experience possible.”

Some alternative-fuel vehicles do not include oil changes, and some performance vehicles and certain trucks do not include tire rotations when that service is not recommended. The program covers up to four service visits in the 24-month period, and is fully transferrable to subsequent owners.
