GMC HUMMER EV Crushes Off-Road Testing in Moab

GMC HUMMER EV Crushes Off-Road Testing in Moab | Mitchell Buick GMC | San Angelo, TX

Moab, Utah, is known for its breathtaking vistas and rocky terrain. Because of its fame as an off-roading destination, Moab is the ideal place to test off-road-ready vehicles. And that’s exactly what GMC did earlier this year with the upcoming HUMMER EV.

It’s no surprise that the HUMMER EV crushed off-road testing in Moab. Thanks to features like Extract Mode, Terrain Mode, CrabWalk, and One-Pedal Driving, the Utah desert was no match for the all-electric supertruck. Terrain Mode offers two different braking calibrations that you can either use traditionally with two pedals and a mild braking option or with One-Pedal Driving and regenerative braking. One-Pedal Driving and Terrain Mode together allow you to easily climb steep hills and crawl over rocks in your HUMMER EV without batting an eyelid, making this supertruck a super beast off-road.

CrabWalk allows the HUMMER EV to drive diagonally, which lets the truck traverse even the most challenging terrain with ease. Extract Mode lifts the truck approximately 6 inches higher off the ground, so you can drive over boulders or through deep water with confidence.

The one-of-a-kind GMC HUMMER EV is slated to hit dealership showrooms this fall. Want to learn more about the HUMMER EV and its SUV sibling? Mitchell Buick GMC in San Angelo, Texas, can help you find your perfect match in the HUMMER EV lineup.

VIN 001 GMC HUMMER EV Edition 1 Raises $2.5 Million for Veterans

First GMC HUMMER EV Raises $2.5 Million For Charity | Mitchell Buick GMC | San Angelo, TX

Anticipation is off the charts for the electrifying new 2022 GMC HUMMER EV supertruck. In fact, the first one to roll off the production line, the VIN 001 HUMMER EV Edition 1, brought in $2.5 million for American heroes at a recent charity auction in Arizona.

The money from the sale of the VIN 001 HUMMER EV Edition 1 will go toward the Tunnel to Towers Foundation. This organization, which was started in honor of Sept. 11 first responder Stephen Siller, provides mortgage-free homes for badly injured veterans and Gold Star families.

The auctioneer, Barrett-Jackson, waived the usual fees for an auction sale. That means Tunnel to Towers will receive the entire $2.5 million in proceeds.

“One hundred percent of the hammer price from this auction will resonate across America,” said Frank Siller, the foundation’s CEO. “This donation from the HUMMER EV Edition 1 will help build homes for our catastrophically injured veterans to give them their independence and a better quality of life.”

The HUMMER EV is the first-ever all-electric vehicle from GMC, and it’s going to be incredible. The Edition 1 trim will arrive first with 1,000 horsepower, 11,500 lb-ft of torque, and a 0-60 mph time of as little as 3 seconds. It’ll also boast massive off-road capabilities thanks to tech like Four-Wheel Steer with CrabWalk, an adjustable-height suspension, and underbody trail cameras.

The HUMMER EV Edition 1 will go into production toward the end of the year, and we can’t wait. Contact us here at Mitchell Buick-GMC in San Angelo to learn how you can get in line to reserve the HUMMER EV for yourself.

Car Maintenance Tips for When You’re Driving Less

Car Maintenance In San Angelo, TX

The holidays are fast approaching, but with the challenges we face today, it’s unlikely to be like any season we’ve experienced yet. Indeed, 2020 has been a year where many of us aren’t driving as much as we used to. But that doesn’t mean you should scale back on taking care of your vehicle. There are several key car maintenance steps you should take when you’re driving less to help ensure its health and longevity for the new year.

Don’t use your parking brake

Your parking brake is great for keeping you safely parked even on a steep hill, but you don’t want to use it long-term. If you leave the parking brake on for too long, it can cause the brake pads and rotor to stick together.

Give it a wax

Sitting idle for an extended period of time can cause more buildup of debris on your car, which can cause the paint to deteriorate and even cause rust. Protect your car’s body and paint by waxing and sealing it.

Park in a clear area

If you’re going to be leaving your car to sit for days or weeks at a time, it’s important to pick the right parking space. Try not to park underneath a tree if you can help it, especially in the fall, when your car will get covered with fallen leaves. If you have to park under a tree, invest in a car cover to keep the elements out.

These are just some of the ways you can take care of your ride when it’s not getting as much action. For all your car maintenance needs, even when you’re driving much less than normal, let the experts at Mitchell Buick GMC in San Angelo, Texas, get you squared away.

How to Celebrate Halloween at Home in 2020

Happy Halloween | Mitchell Buick GMC | San Angelo, TX

There are a number of family-friendly Halloween activities you can do this year, whether you want to start a new family tradition or simply have some scary fun in San Angelo, Texas. Enjoying a spooky dinner party, making paper lanterns, face painting, and Halloween cookie-baking are all great ways to connect with your kids and grandkids. Even if you plan to stay indoors the entire evening, you can still have a blast and celebrate Halloween at home in style.

First, start with a spooky dinner party. Halloween is often associated with candy, but older kids might enjoy a gothic-inspired dinner, with a dramatic charcuterie board and plastic spiders. Autumnal flavors are always popular, like spiced cider, pumpkin tarts, and chocolate, but in many cases the decorations are just as important as the dishes you serve.

You can also try making paper lanterns to accompany your jack-o-lanterns, and you can light them with tea candles or small LED bulbs. Simply make a cylinder out of construction paper, add slits, and add a handle. You can decorate using markers or colored construction paper.

Face painting is a smart alternative to masks, and it’s often more affordable. Inexpensive Halloween face-painting kits are easy to find, but you should be sure to wear a layer or Vaseline or cold cream to make removal easier. Older kids may also enjoy a temporary tattoo parlor or YouTube tutorials for more professional and scarier designs.

Finally, cookie baking and decorating are always popular. Simply get some inexpensive cookie cutters, orange and black decorations, frosting, and food coloring.

From our family at Mitchell Buick-GMC to you and yours, have a safe, healthy, spooky, and happy Halloween!
