Guide to an Unforgettable Fall in Los Angeles, California

Our beautiful city of Los Angeles has been buzzing all summer. The beaches have been packed; the music acts have been coming non-stop, and we even gained an NFL team. With summer winding down, we here at Simpson Buick GMC, one of the premier GMC dealers near San Diego, aren’t ready for the fun to stop.

It seems like every year around this time things start slowing down, people start to get into their school or work routines, and the up-tempo, lively lifestyle that we all enjoy throughout the summer starts to fade. This fall that doesn’t need to be the case. Check out our complete guide to an unforgettable fall below and keep the good times rolling in the city of angels.

  1. Los Angeles Rams game

The “prodigal sons” of the NFL, the Rams have made their long awaited return home to Los Angeles from the beautiful city of St. Louis, and we could not be more pumped about it. Not only has the team traded for the number 1 pick in the draft, which they turned into star quarterback and California native Jared Goff, but they also have been starring in HBO’s extremely popular TV series “Hard Knocks”.

The NFL’s return means that the fall has become an exciting time to be alive in Los Angeles. Break out the grill and coolers and make your way down to Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum for some good old-fashioned family fun. Encourage your St. Louis friends to continue supporting the team and let’s make this season a historic one.

  1. Drake and Future at the Staples Center

Football isn’t the only major event coming to LA this fall. Hip-Hop Phenom Drake will be playing six shows in the greater Los Angeles area between September 7th and 29th. Joining him will be one of the hottest rappers of the year, Future, for what is sure to be an unbelievable series of performances. Make your way out to the Staples Center or The Forum in Inglewood for a once-in-a-lifetime musical experience.

  1. The L.A. Times: The Taste Festival

The L.A. Times annual event “The Taste” celebrates local cuisine from the Los Angeles area over the entire Labor Day Weekend. What better way to kick off fall than with a taste of all of the best food from the culturally diverse Los Angeles community? Enjoy food, drink and live entertainment in a blissful environment at Paramount Pictures Studios. Visit the LA Times website for additional details and tickets.

  1. Los Angeles Dodgers Games

America’s favorite pastime is in full heat this fall, as your hometown Los Angeles Dodgers and Angels fight for playoff contention. September is one of the most exciting months in baseball as teams begin to clinch spots for the October playoffs. Stars like Mike Trout, Adrian Gonzales, and Clayton Kershaw become legends under the playoff lights, so bring your friends or family to the stadium in your 2016 Buick Enclave and root for your team all the way to the World Series!

  1. Sundown Music Festival

For those that aren’t ready for summer to be over, no fall event is better suited to your needs than Sundown Music Festival. This gigantic beach party features international music sensations such as Awolnation, Erick Morillo, and New Politics for your listening pleasure. Add in zip lines, waterslides, food and drink and you have yourself an epic fall event that you won’t soon forget. Check out the festival’s Facebook page for more info, or visit theirofficial website for tickets!

Is the 2017 GMC Terrain Nightfall the Best GMC Vehicle Yet?

GMC has had some truly spectacular vehicles in its long, storied history. Just look at the groundbreaking 1936 GMC Half Ton Pickup that helped usher in a new wave of trucks made for mass consumption, or the 1955 GMC 100 Series Deluxe ST CT208 that basically defines the time period, or the 1988 GMC 1500 Sierra SLE that marked the beginning of the modern era of truck design.

Now, in 2016 we have become spoiled with state of the art technology and world-class craftsmanship in every GMC produced. With all of this saturation of awe-inspiring vehicles, the question of: “which vehicle can claim itself to be the best?” becomes increasingly difficult to answer.

2017-gmc-terrain-nightfall

The Denali line of GMC vehicles has leveled the playing field across the board by uniformly incorporating the company’s newest technologies and convenience features in almost all of their models.

“So if the vehicles all have a Denali trim, aren’t they all basically the same?” you might ask. The answer is no, no they are not all basically the same. The 2017 GMC Terrain Nightfalledition hits your favorite New GMC dealer near Buena Park, California, Simpson Buick GMC, in December 2016, and is sure to immediately become one of the best-selling vehicles in the GMC lineup. Read on for details on GMC’s hottest new vehicle.

Buena Park’s Favorite SUV

The 2017 Terrain Nightfall is expected to be equally as impressive as GMC’s famed Denali line in terms of tech and convenience features, but the Nightfall offers a uniquely edgy style that helps it stand out from the crowd. Just look at the exterior. With a blacked out grill, 18-inch aluminum wheels with glossy black spokes, and black accents strategically placed across the entire car; the Terrain Nightfall offers drivers an attitude never before seen in a luxury SUV.

The Terrain was built for action with an available 3.6-liter V6 that can power its way to a best-in-class 301 horsepower while still earning a surprisingly efficient 23 highway miles per gallon. If you prefer efficiency over power, GMC also offers a 4-cylinder option that earns up to 32 highway miles per gallon.

Although a full list of interior convenience and tech specifications hasn’t been released to the public yet, the little we do know about the Terrain Nightfall is enough to get us more than a little excited. The 2017 model will feature a 7-inch touchscreen monitor that will house GMC’s signature Intellilink infotainment system that allows you to access navigation controls as well as use voice commands to play Pandora or SiriusXM stations, make phone calls and send and receive text messages.

GMC’s reputation as one of the leading truck and SUV manufacturers in the world market ensures that any special edition vehicle like the Terrain Nightfall or earlier special editions like the Sierra All Terrain X and Canyon Nightfall are worth noting. With Fall of 2016 quickly approaching, we here at Simpson Buick GMC believe it is high time to start getting excited for GMC’s latest and greatest edition to an already impressive lineup.

Check Out all of GMC’s Special Edition Vehicles at Simpson Buick GMC

There are few manufacturers as reliable and trusted as GMC, and with quality vehicles like the 2017 Terrain Nightfall, it is easy to see why. There are even fewer used car dealers near Anaheim, California that you should trust with your car buying needs. If you are in the market for a new or used vehicle, then come visit your friends at Simpson Buick GMC located at 6500 Auto Center Drive, Buena Park, California 90621.

We offer some of the absolute best service imaginable to all of our customers, and we continue that amazing service even after we’ve made the sale with our talented and experienced service department. Call us today to schedule your test drive!

How To Chill Out In Orange County This Summer

The country has been scorching and the summer’s really heating up here in Orange County. The area’s been the grip of several sweltering heat waves, and people are looking to cool off any way they can. So what are some of the many ways you can chill out in OC when the thermometer is ready to blow its top? Here are some suggestions from your friends at Simpson Buick GMC of Buena Park.

Photo: www.soakcityoc.com Photo: www.soakcityoc.com

Head To A Theme Park – This may be a bit odd to suggest, but you can bet folks will be flocking to Knott’s Soak City Waterpark at Knott’s Berry Farm. A family favorite for splashing, swimming, and all sorts of aquatic fun, Soak City offers cabana rentals and such waterlogged attractions as Banzai Falls, the Laguna Storm Water Tower, and Malibu Run to name a few. And if you trek to Disneyland this summer (yes those pesky relatives are in town again), you can cool off on Pirates of the Caribbean, Grizzly River Run, It’s A Small World, Splash Mountain…well, you get the idea. Just remember: “Dead men tell no tales!”

Go To Da Beach – Yeppers, that’s a pretty obvious choice, isn’t it? But hey, this is Orange County, and we know how to beach. Pick your favorite – be it Newport, Huntington, Laguna, or Dana Point – grab some sunscreen and let the Pacific Ocean cool those hot tootsies… ahhhh! While you’re there, go on a whale-watching cruise or take the catamaran over to Catalina. You’ll have a whale of a time and cool off in the process.

Shop Till You Drop – The OC has a fantastic assortment of enclosed shopping malls to suit every fancy. So why not go on a shopping spree in air-conditioned comfort at one of our many area malls like South Coast Plaza, Brea Mall, or the Westminster Mall, to mention a few?

Go To A Movie – Orange County has movie theaters galore. The Krikorian Buena Park Metroplex 18, La Mirada 7 and plenty of others nearby offer an entertaining respite from the relentless OC sun.

Go Out To Dinner – The OC has, well, a bajillion or so excellent restaurants. So why not beat the heat by dining in a nice cool restaurant and enjoy some nice cool beverages while you’re at it? (Remember: if those beverages are alcoholic, please drink and drive responsibly.)

dealership-e1467309060246

The 2015 GMC Sierra Means Business

The ruggedly handsome 2015 GMC Sierra is one tough truck that means business. Whether on the job, headed uptown, or on the highway, the new GMC Sierra 1500 and its stable mates the Sierra 2500, Sierra 3500, and Sierra Denali, offer the versatility, performance, innovation, and solid reliability you’ve come to expect from GMC’s “Professional Grade” quality trucks.

Ready For Work Or Play

Available in multiple cab and box configurations, the 2015 GMC Sierra gives you options to customize it to your tastes and your needs. You’ll also appreciate driving a truck that looks as good as it performs. Its muscular front end features crystal projector-beam headlights and available LED accents, as well as brightly polished chrome accents. Flared wheel arches, squared-off fenders, and chrome appointments give the Sierra an assertive appearance. The Sierra’s high-strength steel construction and fully boxed frame surrounds you in fortress-like security.

The Sierra also comes ready for work or play with a variety of smart features to making loading, unloading, and hauling gear easier than ever. These include an integrated CornerStep bumper, four movable upper tie-down hooks, available LED box lighting, and available spray-on bed liner to protect your investment.

The New Definition Of Interior Comfort, Versatility & Quality

Step inside the GMC Sierra’s spacious cabin and experience a new level of comfort, convenience, and refinement. As Marty Padgett of TheCarConnection.com points out: “The interior features a well laid-out upright dashboard, with easy-to-use controls that can be manipulated even by a gloved hand. Materials are as nice as any in the truck market, with soft-touch plastics used at almost all touch points. GMC’s signature red lighting is used on the clear gauges as well as for ambient lighting on models so equipped.”

GMC designers paid meticulous attention to detail to set the Sierra’s interior apart. Modern touches like brushed aluminum trim on the instrument panel, steering wheel, and center console, along with contrast stitching on the seats and dash, lend an air of refinement and luxury. Controls are ergonomically placed within easy reach, and the cavernous center console swallows up hanging file folders, laptops, and more.

As TheCarConnection.com’s Marty Padgett notes, “In-cabin storage is excellent. On Sierras with bench seats, there’s some storage embedded in the middle seat section, along with a trio of cup holders. Five-seat Sierras have a wide center console with cup holders, a deep rectangular storage bin, a pair of smartphone ridges, and, depending on trim level, up to five USB ports and both 12- and 110-volt power points so you can recharge or power almost anything–GoPros, camera batteries, even laptops. There’s a dual glovebox, and enough molded-in bottle holders to stash enough water for a desert crossing.”

From the construction site to the country club, the Sierra’s quiet triple-sealed cockpit becomes a rolling office that excels at keeping you at the top of your game. When you need to transport workers to a job site or the family on a weekend outing, the Sierra’s interior obliges with ample rear-seat legroom and dual-density foam seats for exceptional comfort. Available leather seating lets you take your Sierra uptown.

Command & Connect With High-Tech

You’ll command and control an array of cutting-edge technology in the new 2015 Sierra. The Sierra keeps you connected like never before with an available 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot for up to seven devices. Stay productive and stay in touch no matter where the road takes you.

But that’s just the beginning for the Sierra’s technological innovation. GM’s available 8-in customizable Color Touch Radio with IntelliLink gives you an array of entertainment, information, navigation, and connectivity features, including:

  • “Natural Language” voice command
  • “MyMedia” which connects media libraries from multiple devices
  • Customizable “Favorites” which lets you save albums, songs, artists, destinations and contacts
  • Bluetooth®connectivity
  • Smartphone integration for hands-free calling and phone book access
  • Ability to stream Pandora®Internet Radio

Performance That Gets It Done

Under the hood, the Sierra comes ready to outperform with several brawny engine choices. GM engineered these engines with more than 50 years of proven small-block technology, combining performance when you need it with solid fuel economy. Don’t underestimate the newly designed 4.3-liter EcoTec® V6. With 285 hp and 305 lb-ft of torque, it’s got the muscle to get things done with a towing capacity of up to 7,600 pounds. The V6 also delivers up to an EPA-estimated 24 highway mpg, thanks to fuel-saving features like direct fuel injection, Active Fuel Management™ cylinder deactivation, and a smooth-shifting six-speed automatic.

If you need to step up the power, the Sierra’s potent 5.3-liter EcoTec® V8 won’t disappoint. It’s rated at 355 hp and churns out 383 lb-ft of torque. Continuously variable valve timing contributes to an EPA-estimated 23 mpg highway, and the engine can tow up to 11,000 pounds.

For the ultimate in performance and towing capacity, the available 6.2-liter V8 pumps out an authoritative 420 horses and prodigious 450 lb-ft of torque. This bad boy lets you tow a class-leading 12,000 pounds for those big jobs that need a heavy hauler to get the job done. A new eight-speed transmission helps improve fuel economy.

Surefooted Handling

Safely handling those big loads requires a truck that steps up to the plate and delivers. That’s why the 2015 Sierra lineup comes with the latest in driver-control technology. In additional to available four-wheel drive, the Sierra helps you keep things straight and steady with such features as:

  • Available Hill Descent Control
  • StabiliTrak®with Traction Control
  • Available Automatic Locking Rear Differential
  • Electric Variable-Assist Power Rack-And-Pinion Steering System
  • Driver Shift Control
  • Trailer Brake Controller

Combine these with fully independent suspension with a higher spring rate for a more controlled ride, Duralife™ long-life brake rotors, and available Magnetic Ride Control for a ride that is both comfortable and confident.

Uncompromising Safety

The 2015 GMC Sierra also excels where it matters most, and that’s when it comes to the safety of you and your passengers. Some of the many important standard and available GM safety features you’ll find on the Sierra include Forward Collision Alert, Lane Departure Warning, and Rear Vision Camera. There’s also an available “Safety Alert Seat” that vibrates the driver’s seat cushions. Additionally, most Sierra models feature a 6-month trial subscription to the “OnStar®10 Directions & Connections Plan.” The plan includes:

  • Automatic Crash Response
  • Turn-by-Turn Navigation
  • Roadside Assistance
  • Emergency Services Link
  • Remote Door Unlock

The 2015 GMC lineup comes in several trim levels and package options. These include the GMC Sierra 1500, Sierra 2500 and 2500HD, the Sierra 3500 and 3500HD, as well as the premium Sierra Delani and legendary Sierra Z71 Off-Road. Customize your Sierra pickup with several unique packages, including the Elevation Edition, All-Terrain Edition, and Carbon 22 Edition.

No matter which 2015 GMC Sierra pickup you choose, you can rest assured that you’re getting a superbly engineered, meticulously crafted, and thoroughly modern truck that incorporates GM’s best thinking and best technology. In other words, it’s “Professional Grade.” Test drive it today at your preferred Orange County GMC Sierra dealer, Simpson Buick GMC of Buena Park.
