General Motors Reveals OnStar Insurance

OnStar Insurance | Collierville, TN

General Motors is now beginning to offer OnStar Insurance through the new OnStar Insurance Services agency. Check out what this agency has to give and how it can improve the digital insurance experience.

Fairer shopping

OnStar Insurance Services and its insurance carrier partners put more focus on your vehicle usage and your driving habits rather than on other uncontrollable factors. This makes shopping for insurance a fairer experience. Although shopping takes place entirely online, you can also ask questions and get assistance from agents as needed.

Discount opportunities

Once you have insurance, the agency will analyze your driving behavior and provide recommendations on how you can better your performance. If you significantly improve your driving, you may be eligible to receive discounts.

Collision assistance

If you have both OnStar Insurance and the OnStar Safety & Security plan, you can drive around Collierville, Tennessee, with more confidence. Automatic Crash Response can let an OnStar Emergency-certified Advisor know if you’ve been involved in an accident. The advisor will then contact emergency service providers and assist you however they can.

OnStar Insurance is a fantastic new GM offering. If you’d like to learn more about additional OnStar® services or want to get behind the wheel of a new GM model, give us a call at Sunrise Chevrolet Buick GMC at Collierville.

GM will bring three-cylinder engines back to the U.S.

2021 Trailblazer - Memphis, TN

As engineering technology has improved, smaller engines are capable of delivering more efficiency and power than ever. That is why General Motors is adding two new three-cylinder engines to its U.S. lineup for the first time in over 20 years. These engines will make their debuts on the 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer and the 2020 Buick Encore GX.

With advanced turbocharger technology, these three-cylinder engines will deliver similar outputs to four-cylinder engines. The units will come with features like an active vacuum system, an electrically assisted wastegate system, and an electrically driven water pump. All these features, plus the 40-pound weight difference, should help deliver superior efficiency and performance over the four-cylinder engines.

The last time GM offered a three-cylinder, it was in the 2000 Chevrolet Metro. This 1.0-liter three-cylinder engine was only rated at 55 horsepower. By comparison, GM’s overseas three-cylinder options deliver around 155 horsepower. GM has yet to announce the official output ratings of the new 1.2- and 1.3-liter engines.

All of us at Sunrise Chevrolet Buick GMC at Collierville are we are excited to experience these new engines for ourselves. The 2020 Buick Encore GX should arrive within the next couple months, while the 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer is set to debut later this spring. We’d love to see you here to test drive either — or both — of these vehicles.
