The C8 Corvette is a Magnet for First-Time Chevy Buyers

C8 Corvette  for First-Time Chevy Buyers | Mt Dora, FL

The Chevrolet C8 Corvette is the iconic nameplate’s first mid-engine model, and its appeal has proven strong with long-time fans and new enthusiasts alike. Vice President of Chevrolet Steve Hill recently revealed the surprising news that out of all C8 Corvette buyers, two-thirds of them are first-time owners.


Chevy sold 8,992 C8 Corvette models during the fourth quarter of 2020, a 158 percent increase over the 3,491 in the last quarter of 2019. 21,626 Chevrolet C8 Corvettes drove off the lots of dealerships like Danny Len Buick GMC in 2020. That increase from 17,988 units in 2019 can be partially attributed to the influx of new Chevy buyers who wanted the C8 Corvette.


The C8 Corvette draws its remarkable power from a 6.2-liter V8 engine that can belt out 495 horsepower and 470 pound-feet of torque. Meanwhile, a dual-clutch transmission makes the most of that muscle by paring up with Magnetic Ride Control 4.0 to ensure a smooth ride.


The mid-engine design allows the 2021 C8 Corvette to deliver unprecedented performance and handling. New technology features like wireless smartphone connectivity, an available Performance Data Recorder for serious track-drivers, and available Enhanced Navigation with a 3D view help the C8 Corvette appeal to first-time Chevy buyers.


Whether you’re a Chevy newbie or a Corvette aficionado, you can’t go wrong by checking out the wide array of vehicles — including the Corvette — available at Danny Len Buick GMC.

2022 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali to Feature Super Cruise

The future of driving is here: General Motors’ Super Cruise. This semi-autonomous driving technology increases safety and convenience, and will now be available on the 2021 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali. The hands-free Super Cruise driving technology has been featured on just a few other select vehicles from the GM lineup and will also find its way onto the GMC Hummer EV at the end of this year.

So what does Super Cruise do? Using GPS, cameras, sensors, and LiDAR map data, this technology monitors everything a human driver typically would behind the wheel. Working in tandem with driver-assist safety technologies like adaptive cruise control, Super Cruise can brake, accelerate, and steer as needed on more than 200,000 miles of highways in North America. This is just GM’s next step toward fully autonomous vehicles.

Super Cruise is not yet, however, a substitute for human drivers. The 2022 GMC Sierra Denali and other vehicles with the tech constantly monitor driver activity to ensure the person behind the wheel is paying attention. If they aren’t, they will be forced to put their hands back on the wheel and resume full control of the vehicle.

For more updates on the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali — and GM Super Cruise — keep an eye on the Danny Len Buick GMC blog.

GMC Hummer EV Features a Clever Easter Egg

Everyone is eagerly waiting for the all-new 2022 GMC Hummer EV, the world’s first all-electric supertruck designed for off-road capabilities. To top off the excitement, the GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 contains a special Easter egg inside the cabin.


The GMC Hummer EV Edition 1 is built for high-quality audio, with a standard Bose 14-speaker audio system and Electric Vehicle Sound Enhancement. When you look closely at the speakers, you can find a topographical map of the Sea of Tranquility etched on the grille. The Apollo 11 Lunar Module landed at the Sea of Tranquility in 1969 when Neil Armstrong first set foot on the moon. The GMC Hummer EV design evokes a futuristic vibe that makes this historical Easter egg that much more fitting.


The nod to space continues with the Hummer EV cabin’s color scheme, Lunar Horizon, which incorporates black, white, and gray materials. Notably, GM has extensive experience with electric power that has helped with the creation of the Hummer EV. GM designed the Lunar Roving Vehicle, an electric moon rover used in later Apollo missions. The GMC Hummer EV utilizes battery power just like the Lunar Roving Vehicle, achieving more than 350 miles of driving range and up to 1,000 horsepower and 11,500 lb-ft of torque.*


For more information on the revolutionary 2022 Hummer EV, keep your eyes on the Danny Len Buick GMC blog in the coming months.

Buick Shows Off the Electra EV Concept

With its newest concept vehicle, Buick simultaneously welcomes the future to the present while harkening to the automaker’s illustrious history. The new Electra concept shows off Buick’s most advanced connectivity tech inside of a space-age body that is powered by an all-electric motor.

Buick’s brand-new Electra concept, which was unveiled early this fall in China, is not the brand’s first use of the “Electra” moniker. The original Electra was a premium full-size sedan that played a prominent part in the automotive landscape for over three decades.

The Electra concept is powered by an Ultium battery that propels the twin electric motors to produce 583 horsepower. The sporty sedan is fast enough to travel from 0–60 mph in just 4.3 seconds, and it has an all-electric range of 410 miles.

The gorgeous Electra is certainly more stylish than most EVs thanks to a bevy of premium aesthetic choices like a wraparound center display, ambient lights, and rose gold trim that are intended to draw comparisons to spacecraft. Per Molly Peck, the Executive Director of Buick Sales and Marketing for SAIC-GM, “the Electra represents the brand’s ambition to bring together beautiful styling and intelligent connectivity in the new era of zero emissions.”

While Buick doesn’t have any EVs stateside yet, you can shop the current lineup of luxury SUVs right here at Danny Len Buick in Mt. Dora, Fl.

Everything We Know About the GMC Hummer EV

GMC recently announced that the highly-anticipated release of the Hummer EV will come in fall 2020. Here’s a quick look at what we already know about the new all-electric GMC Hummer.


The new Hummer EV will run solely off electricity, shedding its gas-guzzler image thanks to all-new Ultium battery technology and charging capabilities, which have been described as “super-fast.”


Don’t let the all-electric power of the new GMC Hummer EV fool you; it will still pack a serious punch with a jaw-dropping 1,000 horsepower rating to go along with 11,500 lb-ft of wheel torque. It will only take three seconds for the Hummer EV to go from 0-60 mph.


The GMC Hummer EV will come available as either a truck or an SUV, enabling you to pick the style that best fits your lifestyle.


Removable roof panels allow for open-air driving so you can enjoy the Mt. Dora weather from the comfort of your Hummer EV. GMC also teased at an “open-air infinity roof” that we can’t wait to get a closer look at.


New technologies will adorn the new Hummer EV.  “Ultra-Vision Cameras” and new settings like “Adrenaline Mode” and “Crab Mode” will be available upon its release, and Super Cruise — a hands-free driving feature that has so far only appeared on select Cadillacs — will solidify the Hummer EV as the powerhouse of the future.

Production of the 2021 Buick Encore is Underway

If you are a big fan of Buick’s lineup of SUVs, there’s plenty to be excited about. Most recently, we learned that production on the 2021 Buick Encore is already underway.

This might come as a relief if you’ve been following reports over the last few months. Early reports suggested that the Buick Encore GX was meant to serve as a replacement of sorts for the traditional Encore. In addition to the Encore GX, the space left empty by the absence of the Encore would be filled by a second larger SUV model.

Fortunately, the Buick Encore has continued to be one of the best-selling models in the automaker’s lineup. As such, Buick has no plans to replace the original Encore in the foreseeable future.

The 2021 Encore is currently being built at the Bupyeong production plant in South Korea. Reports suggest that this version of the Encore will only differ slightly from its 2020 predecessor, meaning if you were a fan of the Encore before, you’ll find plenty to love with this version.

Of course, if you can’t wait until the official release of the 2021 Buick Encore to get behind the wheel of this luxury SUV, you can always purchase a 2020 Encore model here at Danny Len Buick GMC.

Numerous available storage compartments help control clutter, and a negative-ion air purification system provides fresh, clean-smelling air to the interior of the vehicle.

Accessible Tech

While you enjoy the ambiance, you’ll also appreciate the Bose® premium surround sound system, 4G LTE Wi-Fi® hotspot, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility, and numerous charging options.
