As we move into the autumn months and the weather begins to change in North Louisiana, it’s a great time to catch up on service for your vehicle. Here are just a few of the things we can take care of for you this fall here at Courtesy Chevy Buick GMC in Ruston.
Check the headlights
As the days get shorter and the sun sets earlier, you’ll be relying more on your vehicle’s headlights and other lights. Take a few minutes to make sure all of your vehicle’s exterior lights are working properly. If any bulbs are burnt out, the Courtesy service department is here to replace them.
Monitor the battery
After a long, hot summer, it’s a good idea to make sure your battery is still in good shape. Here at Courtesy, we’ll be happy to check whether it’s still holding a charge the way it should. If necessary, we can also install a new battery for you.
Replace your windshield wipers
Have you replaced your vehicle’s windshield wipers recently? It’s a good idea to do this at least once a year, and fall is the perfect time. If your wipers are leaving streaks on the glass or starting to fall apart, it’s especially important to get new ones.
At Courtesy Chevy Buick GMC, we look forward to helping you this fall with these maintenance tasks — or anything else your vehicle needs to run smoothly and look great!
A trio of 2022 models from General Motors will boast upgraded Super Cruise technology and a hands-free driving experience that’s more advanced than ever.
The Chevrolet Silverado, GMC Hummer EV Pickup, and GMC Sierra will all be available with enhanced Super Cruise for 2022.
With Super Cruise, you can travel hands-free on more than 200,000 miles of U.S. and Canada roads. This system uses cameras, sensors, and mapping data to control a vehicle’s speed, braking, and lane centering while your hands are off the wheel.
For 2022, Super Cruise is adding new capabilities for an even smoother experience. You’ll now be able to drive hands-free while towing a trailer with the Silverado, Sierra, or Hummer EV Pickup. Super Cruise will also be able to initiate and carry out lane changes while your hands are off the wheel. Compatible roads will also be more seamlessly integrated into built-in navigation systems and mapping apps.
“We’re excited to expand Super Cruise to even more new models with additional capabilities to provide our customers with even more opportunities to go hands-free,” said Mario Maiorana, chief engineer for Super Cruise. “The additional Super Cruise-enabled vehicles and new features are an important step toward our goal of enabling hands-free driving 95 percent of the time and getting people more comfortable with letting go of the wheel.”
Ready to let go of the wheel yourself? Contact us here at Courtesy Chevy Buick GMC in Ruston, Louisiana, to find out how you can test-drive a Super Cruise-equipped Chevrolet or GMC vehicle.
Planning to buy a Chevrolet, GMC, or Buick vehicle? Now you can do so with even more peace of mind, thanks to General Motors’ new optional extended limited warranty.
At Courtesy Chevy Buick GMC in Ruston, Louisiana, all our new vehicles are covered by GM’s standard bumper-to-bumper warranty that lasts for 36,000 miles or 36 months, depending on which milestone you reach first.
With the new extended limited warranty, you’ll be covered for even longer: 60 months or 60,000 miles, whichever comes first. During this period, eligible repairs for your vehicle — along with parts, labor, and towing — are free at participating GM dealerships.
You can opt for this extra coverage at the time of purchase. If you’re buying a used model and the previous owner bought the extended warranty, you’ll be covered for the remaining time or mileage.
If you’re buying a Chevrolet, the cost of this warranty ranges from $1,030 for the Spark to $2,238 for the Corvette. For GMC models, it costs anywhere from $1,334 to $1,712. And it’s priced at $1,670 for all Buick vehicles.
An extended warranty is a great way to feel even more comfortable behind the wheel of your new Chevrolet, Buick, or GMC vehicle. Talk to our experts here at Courtesy Chevy Buick GMC for more details on whether this option makes sense for you.
With the news of the 2022 Hummer EV pickup truck taking the electric world by storm last year, GM has unveiled another addition to the Quiet Revolution and released more Hummer EV details. As GM’s first all-electric SUV, the Hummer EV will go into production in early 2023 with a release date of spring 2023.
Even though GM retired the Hummer brand in 2010, the automaker has revived the nameplate earlier with the electric pickup truck and now as an electric SUV. In designing a world with zero emissions, the Hummer EV will be powered by GM’s new modular electric battery platform, Ultium. With this Ultium platform, the Electric EV will enjoy a driving range of up to 400 miles with a 300 kW fast-charging capability. This efficiency translates into an extremely capable performance as well, as the Hummer EV will generate up to 830 horsepower and go from 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds.
The Hummer EV SUV will also feature many of the same features as the Hummer EV pickup, such as Super Cruise, Extract Mode, and Crab Walk, a setting which lets the Hummer drive diagonally at low speeds by rotating all four wheels. The SUV will also include a 13.4-inch touch-screen center console display and 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster.

The 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali will make trailering even better thanks to the addition of Super Cruise technology. The latest version of Super Cruise will introduce the ability to trailer while driving hands-free. As the industry’s first hands-free driver assistance system, Super Cruise contributes to the exceptional trailering capabilities of the GMC Sierra.
With the use of real-time camera, sensors, and GPS, as well as precision LiDAR map data, the Super Cruise driver assistance system is available on more than 200,000 miles of compatible roads in the United States and Canada. When Super Cruise is in operation, a small camera on top of the steering column works with infrared lights to locate where you are looking. If the system senses you have turned your gaze away from the road for too long, it will activate the steering wheel light bar to prompt your attention back to the road.
The addition of Super Cruise makes the 2022 GMC Sierra even stronger and more capable when towing and trailering. It also improves driver confidence when connecting to a trailer, ensuring you can hit the road knowing that the 2022 GMC Sierra has the latest technology to make the trailering process better.
Super Cruise technology is one of the things that gets us excited about the future of cars. Learn more about the GMC Sierra, Super Cruise, and other cool automotive tech at Courtesy Chevy Buick GMC Cadillac.
