The innovators at General Motors have been busy. The world’s leading automotive manufacturer will soon debut a blockbuster lineup of brand-new 2017 models. With 2017 right around the bend, these exciting new Chevys, Buicks, and GMC trucks will soon be arriving at our local Chevrolet, Buick, and GMC new car dealership in Marshall, MO, McCarthy Chevy Buick GMC. So we thought we’d give you an exclusive sneak peek at three of these innovative and exciting new models destined for your driveway in 2017.


2017 Chevy Cruze Hatchback

Chevy introduces the first-ever hatchback based on the popular and highly successful Cruze platform. The 2017 Chevy Cruze Hatchback takes all of the attributes of Chevy’s best-selling compact four-door sedan and packages them in a smart-looking, chic new design that emphasizes fun, youthfulness, and versatility.

A Hip Urban Attitude, Inside & Out.

The new Cruze Hatch is striking from any angle. While similar to its four-door sibling is some respects, the Cruze Hatch adds some urban swagger with curvaceous lines, aggressive alloy wheels, a coupe-like roofline, and swooping rear deck that features a sporty integrated spoiler, a large chrome-tipped exhaust, distinctive lower bumper with black accents, and visually interesting creases and character lines.

On the inside, this hot new Chevy hatch demonstrates its mastery of inner space with a spacious and versatile interior that’s as handsome as it is practical. Not only does the Cruze Hatch feature top quality materials and excellent fit & finish throughout, but it also offers up to 47.2 cubic feet of amazingly flexible cargo space with the 2nd-row seats folded.

Spirited Performance. Smart Technology.

Propelling the Cruze Hatch is a small, yet powerful, 1.4-liter turbocharged 4 cylinder engine that produces 153 horsepower. Best of all, this tiny but mighty powerplant excels at giving you up to an EPA-estimated 40 mpg on the highway.* And like its four-door brother, the Cruze Hatch puts a premium on fun with a sport-tuned suspension that delivers agile and confident handling.

The new 2017 Cruze Hatchback for sale near Kansas City at McCarthy Chevy Buick GMC brings plenty of tech to the party, too. Available Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™, and fast 4G LTE Wi-Fi lets you tune in, rock out, stay connected, and enjoy many of the same functions as your compatible smartphone. Plus, the new Cruze Hatch comes with many standard and available safety features, such as a Rear Vision Camera, Lane Keep Assist, Rear Park Assist, Forward Collision Alert, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Side Blind Zone Alert, and Forward Collision Alert. It’s also the first car in its class to offer 10 standard airbags.


2017 Chevy Bolt EV

When it comes to the most cutting-edge electric vehicle (EV) technology on the highway, Chevy bolts into the lead with the all-new, all-electric Chevy Bolt. This futuristically styled and amazingly versatile, 5-door hatchback offers an electrifyingly long range of up to 238 miles on a full charge. ‘

Modern Exterior. Cutting-Edge Technology.

The exciting new Chevy Bolt features an exterior that’s fresh and modern as it is aerodynamically efficient. Every artful fold, crease, character line, and bulge has been wind-tunnel tested. The Bolt’s sweeping roof, for example, flows into an integrated rear spoiler. Muscular wheel arches give the Bolt a robust and athletic look. The enclosed flat underbody streamlines airflow.

The ultramodern interior of the new Chevy Bolt EV seats up to 5 passengers in contemporary comfort. And move over Tesla! The Bolt features its own standard 10.2-inch interactive center display with a split-screen view. A customizable 8-inch driver display that replaces traditional analog instruments. In other words, you can enjoy some of the same technology found in the Tesla at a fraction of the cost.

Additionally, you also get GM’s exclusive available 4G LTE WI-Fi that gives you unrivaled connectivity capabilities. That’s a perk many other electric vehicles don’t offer.

Thanks to the ingenious placement of the Bolt’s batteries, the floor is completely flat. With no bulges or obstructions to worry about, it’s a breeze to load and unload both passengers and cargo. Additionally, the Bolt features an outstanding 56.6 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded flat, so you can load it up with everything your modern lifestyle demands.

238 Mile Range

But what really sets the new Chevy Bolt apart is its ingenious all-electric powerplant. The system employs what’s called “Regen on Demand™” that uses the Bolt’s brakes to generate electric power to help recharge the batteries. This system also allows for “one-pedal driving.” Just take your foot off of the accelerator and the Bolt will begin to slow down on its own. Of course, the brakes are always there when you need them.

As a result, the Bolt can travel an impressive EPA-estimated* 238 miles on a full charge. And with the available 240-volt charging unit professionally installed in your home, you’ll be able to charge your Bolt EV in roughly 9 hours. On the road, you can take advantage of a growing number of DC Fast-Charging Stations that will get you going in about 30 minutes. The Bolt’s powerful electric motors provide exceptionally quick acceleration and smooth, quiet highway cruising.


2017 Buick LaCrosse

For the first time in 30 years an American automaker from Detroit’s “Big 3” has been named by Consumer Reports as one of the top three most reliable automotive brands, along with Lexus and Toyota. That automaker is Buick. And all of us here at McCarthy Chevrolet Buick GMC couldn’t be prouder.

In addition to shocking the automotive world with this historic achievement, Buick continues to make headlines with the launch of the all-new and completely redesigned 2017 LaCrosse luxury 4-door sedan for sale near Kansas City at McCarthy Chevy Buick GMC. Competing directly with such premium luxury marques as Acura, Volvo, Lincoln, and Lexus, the LaCrosse arrives wearing stunningly beautiful new sheetmetal inspired by Buick’s critically acclaimed Avenir Concept vehicle that debuted to rave reviews at last year’s Detroit Auto Show.

Beautiful New Design

Slotting in between Buick’s mid-size and full-size lineup, the LaCrosse evokes the pinnacle of elegance and refinement with its sleek and sculpted lines. Buick’s signature “waterfall” grille gets an extra touch of class with the Buick triple-crest logo in the middle of a slender wing-shaped bar that bisects the chrome-accented grille that is to become “the new face of Buick.” The rear end features new LED taillights that carve into the rear decklid as well as wrap around the rear quarter panel. Stylish high-intensity-discharge (HID) headlights with LED accents not only illuminate the road ahead but are a brilliant expression of the LaCrosse’s contemporary good looks.

Sumptuous Luxury Interior

Equally impressive is the superbly crafted interior of the all-new LaCrosse. Thanks to Buick’s Active Noise Cancellation, the LaCrosse’s cabin is whisper quiet. Fit and finish are excellent, as is the generous use of top-quality premium materials throughout. The driver-centric cockpit features sport instrumentation and a leather-wrapped sport steering wheel with convenient fingertip controls. Ambient mood lighting, available heated and ventilated leather massage front seats, a new pass-through center console, luxurious wood-grained trim, and substantial passenger head and legroom set the new LaCrosse apart.

Powerful New V6

Under the hood, the new LaCrosse features an innovative new 3.6-liter V6 engine with new 8-speed automatic transmission. Rated at 310 horsepower and 282 lb.-ft. of torque, the powerplant delivers brisk acceleration and smooth highway cruising. A revamped suspension with Sport Mode takes full advantage of the LaCrosse’s thoroughbred handling characteristics for a responsive, agile, and confident ride.
