What is Buick Torque Vectoring?

Buick Torque Vectoring - 2017 Buick Envision
Buick Torque Vectoring can be found on the new 2017 Buick Envision crossover.

There’s good news for drivers who frequently have to navigate their way through poor weather conditions. Buick’s new Active Twin Clutch all-wheel-drive system makes it easy to do so. Rather than praying for the best, with this new system drivers can make their way through snow, ice, sleet, or rain with confidence—maybe even with grace.

The new all-wheel drive system, which can be found on the new Buick Envision crossover, is made possible by Buick torque vectoring. This is an intelligent feature that has been under continuous development for 20 years. In short, torque vectoring takes power (torque) and delivers it to a specific point (vectoring). In this case, the torque is being sent to the wheels that need it the most.

Buick’s torque-vectoring technology uses electronically controlled clutches that are capable of sending all of the power to the front wheels, the rear wheels, or dividing as needed. Not only does this intelligent feature make it easier to drive in wet or icy conditions, but it also improves handling on dry, paved roads. It’s yet another reason why we at Warsaw Buick GMC are proud to support the Buick lineup each and every day.

2018 Jeep Wrangler Pickup Truck Spy Shots

It’s finally happening: the Jeep Wrangler is undergoing an all-new redesign for the first time in ten years. Nothing quite says “all-American vehicle” as well as the Jeep Wrangler—after all, the Wrangler helped win World War II—but even the classicists know that it’s the modern twist that Jeep puts on the Wrangler time and time again that makes it unique in today’s market. That is why it’s so exciting to hear that the all new version of this timeless SUV will also come with an all-new model: the Jeep Wrangler Pickup truck.

Unfortunately for curious onlookers—including us here at Warsaw CDJR—the new 2018 Jeep Wrangler has plans to stay out of the limelight for now. It won’t be revealed to dealerships and the press until late fall 2017.

Fortunately for us, we got a tiny sample of what the new Wrangler pickup will offer thanks to some recent spy shots. The shots were only of a prototype, but it was still clear to see that the new Wrangler will keep some of the traditional Jeep details, like the seven-slot grille and the round headlamps. We’re hoping—and expecting—that this indicates that the new 2018 Wrangler will have the perfect balance between trademark details and modern innovation.

How to Throw a Last Minute St. Patrick’s Day Party

St. Patrick's Day Party

St. Patrick’s Day may just be a few days away, but that doesn’t mean there’s not still time to throw a festive celebration. At Warsaw Buick GMC, we’ll use any excuse to get together with friends. If you’re the same way, use these two tips to throw a St. Patrick’s Day party this weekend for a last-minute themed get-together.

Opt for a Potluck

Since the party is so soon, not only will you not have time to send out invitations, but you’ll also be hard-pressed to plan an entire menu. Instead of stressing over food, figure out which of your friends are coming and turn this fiesta into a potluck. Have guests bring Irish dishes like Guinness Stew, Irish Soda Bread, or Corned Beef and Cabbage. You can supply the dishes, the cutlery, and the green beer.

Choose Ambiance Wisely

There’s no need to rush to the store in search of four-leaf clover garlands. Instead, focus your energy on finding the perfect soundtrack to your party. Nothing says “Irish Pub” more than live music. Ask around and see if you can find someone who’s willing to play music during your party to give it a special, memorable kick. If not, create a playlist ahead of time filled with Irish bands and traditional Celtic music. Encourage guests to come dressed for dance, and don’t forget to say “Sláinte!”
