Planning Your Next Road Trip? You Need A Vehicle With These 4 Features

Millions of families across the United States embark on road trips every year. Road trips are great for making unforgettable memories, visiting loved ones, and discovering new places. In order to go on a road trip with peace of mind, you need a vehicle that offers safety features, fuel efficiency, technology and plenty of cargo space. Whether you choose Buick or GMC, you will enjoy your next road trip on another level.

Safety Features

Safety is key for any road trip. Buick and GMC understand that road conditions can change in an instant, you can’t rely on others to drive as safe as you do, and accidents do happen. Thankfully Buicks and GMCs are well-known for their advanced safety features. GMC offers a variety of safety features; many of these features are included in the GMC Pro Safety Package that comes standard on many new GMC models. Buick offers a Safety Package that also comes standard on many new Buick models.

Buick and GMC’s safety features include Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning and Forward Collision Alert; these features are designed to help you avoid an imminent collision from all angles of your vehicle, which is crucial on any road trip.

Fuel Efficiency

A fuel-efficient vehicle will help you not make as many pit stops for gas and will save you money on your next road trip. Most Buick models, such as the 2020 Buick Envision, come standard with a Turbo engine that gives you better fuel efficiency. GMC has designed many of its models with Active Fuel Management, such as the 2020 GMC Sierra 1500 to give you the most fuel-efficient engine for your next road trip.


For any road trip, a built-in GPS, 4G LTE WiFi Hotspot, and Apple CarPlay or Android Auto compatibility gives you luxury, comfort, and peace of mind. Buick and GMC have designed models like the 2020 Buick Encore and 2020 GMC Terrain full-packed with innovative technology.

Cargo Space

Finally, cargo space is arguably the most important feature your next vehicle needs to have for road trips. No one wants to be crammed into a confined vehicle when traveling for long distances. Thankfully, GMC offers best-in-class cargo volume in the 2019 Sierra 1500 and flat-folding seats in the Terrain and Acadia. Buick also offers folding seats so that you can optimize your cargo volume to handle luggage and anything you want to bring home from your road trip. Buick also has available overhead cargo carriers.
