According to Buick, the 2017 Cascada design will feature the latest sport touring color on the market: Sport Red. This vibrant color is designed to catch the eye as you drive and has been in high demand for several years. Buick has finally granted the consumers’ wishes.

“We’ve heard it from customers all year: ‘What a beautiful car. Can I get it in red?’ Well yes, now you can,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of Global Buick Sales, Service and Marketing. “This new addition to the Cascada portfolio offers a modern style statement with blacked-out exterior trim and red interior stitching.”

The Sport Touring model for which these new features are being added is only available for a limited time, so be sure to stop by Varney Buick GMC.

Light-Duty vs. Heavy-Duty Trucks: Which Is Right for You?

GMC truck - Bangor, ME

The Sierra is GMC’s signature truck.

As if shopping for a new truck weren’t hard enough, one of the most difficult decisions you’ll have to make is whether or not to buy a light-duty pickup or a heavy-duty truck. Although some purists only look for rugged durability and raw torque, there are some advantages to light-duty trucks. Alternatively, heavy-duty trucks offer capabilities you just can’t get elsewhere. Read on to learn more about light-duty vs. heavy-duty trucks.

Heavy-duty trucks are fewer and further between according to Autotrader. In some ways, this makes them easier to narrow down. You can select a model like the Chevy Silverado 2500 or 3500 and the GM Sierra HD, for example. These vehicles come with large diesel engines, heavy-duty transmissions, and added features like limited-slip differentials and more. Basically, they are built for work. You can tow more than 20,000 pounds when properly equipped, and some can get over 6,500 pounds in payload capacity.

Light-duty trucks have some advantages as well. This includes easy maneuverability, improved gas mileage, and higher top speeds. Unfortunately, they can’t tow as much as their heavy-duty counterparts.

Which is right for you? It depends on your driving needs. Heavy-duty trucks are better for those who simply want a workhorse. Light-duty trucks are perfect for drivers who want something for everyday use, with a few added capabilities.
