The 2014 Sierra promises to change trailering forever!

Did you know that 6 out of 10 truck owners use that truck for trailering? Lucky for the pick up truck industry, the all new 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 offers a full suite of trailering technology that will help everyone from acceleration to safety and braking. Take a look at some of the great features that will be offered on the 2014 Sierra.

Before you even put your new 2014 GMC Sierra in motion, your truck will be monitoring conditions and preparing the 2014 Sierra to perform. If you’re on a hill of 5% or higher, Hill Start Assist automatically engages the brakes for 1.5 seconds (or until you press the gas). This keeps the truck from rolling rearward and helps in situations like launching your boat.

When Tow/Haul mode is engaged, the 2014 Sierra’s Trailer Grade Braking is activated when you apply the brakes. This initates downshifts to assist with braking on downgrades. In addition to slowing down the truck efficiently, it reduces rotor temperatures by 100 degrees Celcius during braking.

Want more control over your trucks shifting? TapShift controls on the shift lever are backed by a patent-pending algorithm that improves shift response time by 60% compared to other trucks. On the subject of control, you also have full control over your trucks breaking performance right from the driver’s seat. With an available high mounted Integrated Trailer Brake Controller, you can adjust the level of output to the electric trailer brakes via buttons to the left of the steering wheel. You’ll also get some help from the trailer brake controller, which will allow you to quickly modify trailer braking force based on the weight of your trailer.

The worst thing about towing is worrying about the trailer swaying. Your new 2014 Sierra has Trailer Sway Control! It works with StabiliTrak to provide the driver with additional assistance when towing a trailer. When it senses your trailer swaying it intervenes with braking/reduced engine power to bring the trailer under control and keep it on its intended path. It will also use trailer brakes when it’s plugged into the wiring harness of your Sierra.

  • Trailering package with seven and four pin connectors
  • Enhanced cooling
  • Automatic locking rear differential

The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray will deliver power and efficiency beyond anyone’s expectations!

The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray is gaining more buzz as each day goes on. Today, General Motors released details about the standard engine of the Stingray. The 2014 Stingray will feature a V8 that will put out an astounding 460 horsepower! The best part? It will still exceed 26 mpg on the highway. Jordan Lee, Chevrolet’s Small Block Chief Engineer had this to say:

“The 2014 Chevrolet Stingray’s LT1 engine is a triumph of advanced technology, delivering more power and torque than ever before with greater efficiency. The LT1’s performance complements the Corvette’s low mass with a tremendous feeling of power that builds as the RPMs climb. Driver’s will experience more power and acceleration than ever before with the standard engine – in fact, its power and torque surpass many uplevel engines offered by competitors”

The estimated 0-60 time is less than 4 seconds! The LT1’s direct injection is the primary contributor to the engine’s efficiency, ensuring a more complete burn of the fuel in the air-fuel mixture. It’s achieved by controlling mixture motion and fuel injection spray pattern.

Other features of the Corvette Stingray’s LT1 engine include:

  • Advanced oiling system with oil-spray piston cooling and available dry-sump oiling
  • Engine-mounted, camshaft-driven fuel pump to support the direct injection system
  • Intake manifold with “runners in a box” design that allows for high-efficiency airflow packaged beneath the Corvette’s low hood line
  • High-flow, four-into-one exhaust manifolds based on the design of the LS7 engine.



To accompany the beautiful exterior, take a look at this beautiful engine!

” I felt extremely comfortable while I was at Sweeney and would definitely recommend anyone looking for a vehicle (whether it be new or used) to stop by.”

Sweeney Sales And Leasing Consultant John Metz.

At Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC, we strive to completely satisfy each and every customer that walks through the doors of our Youngstown, Ohio car dealerships. When we get reviews from our customers like this, it lets us know that we’ve reached those goals. If you have feedback you’d like us to know, email [email protected]

Take a look at a review recently submitted for Sales And Leasing Consultant John Metz:

Last night (4/29/2013), I purchased a used 2011 Nissan Pathfinder and dealt with a very nice/friendly and helpful salesman named John Metz. John was very attentive and knowledgeable about the vehicle that I purchased and he got me very close to the payment that I wanted to be at. I felt extremely comfortable while I was at Sweeney and would definitely recommend anyone looking for a vehicle (whether it be new or used) to stop by Sweeney and ask for John Metz. No longer being in the market at this time to buy a vehicle since I purchased one yesterday, rest assured, when I become ready for another vehicle purchase, I will be returning to Sweeney and asking for John’s help again. Thank you John…I appreciate you and the Sweeney staff for staying late last night to make sure I could take my new ride home…I love it!

The 2014 Sierra will be safer than ever!

The all new interior on the 2014 GMC Sierra SLT features a new 6-gauge instrucment panel with a 4.2-inch color Driver Information Center (DIC) controlled by buttons on the steering wheel

The all new interior on the 2014 GMC Sierra SLT features a new 6-gauge instrucment panel with a 4.2-inch color Driver Information Center (DIC) controlled by buttons on the steering wheel.

The all new 2014 Sierra is set to arrive this summer at our dealership and is coming with quite a few safety features never seen before including Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning. However, as innovative as these are, the manner in which these alerts will be delivered is equally innovative. These warnings will be delivered by GMC’s Safety Alert Seat.

With the Safety Alert Seat owners are alerted via a vibration through the surface of the driver’s seat bottom cushion. When the Lane Departure Warning system’s camera detects the Sierra is leaving a lane without a turn signal, a vibration to the left or right seat bolster directs the driver’s attention to the side of the lane encroachment. When a potential collision is detected ahead by Forward Collision Alert, both sides of the seat vibrate.

Forward Collision Alert uses a camera behind the windshield to monitor traffic ahead and estimate time to collision. A green vehicle shaped icon on the instrument cluster lets you know there is a vehicle ahead, in addition to the vibration, when your Sierra gets too close to the vehicle ahead of you it turns orange and when  you’re approaching a vehicle too rapidly it flashes red. This is all of course in addition to the optional Safety Alert Seat.

Sierra’s other active safety features include stabilitrak, rear vision camera, front and rear park assist and other technologies like trailer sway control and an integrated trailer brake controller.

To get a sneak peak at the 2014 GMC Sierra take a look at our pinterest board here:

GM isn’t just the leader in fuel efficient cars, it’s also the leader in environmental protection.

A wildlife habitat at a General Motors Facility.

In the wake of Arbor Day and Earth Day, General Motors has announced that they have set aside 2,600 acres at its global facilities that are tailored areas for wildlife habitats. In a partnership with Wildlife Habitat Council, GM is foregoing putting cement buildings for a different sort of structure; the kind that house animals.

The goal is turn unused land into a home for wildlife. In doing so this helps GM reach their overall goal of getting the most out of its products by recycling or reusing 90% of the waste the company generates. Did you know that the Chevrolet Volt’s scrap batteries can be used as wood duck nests. At last count, GM has installed more than 400 of these structures!

GM also works with local schools, nongovernment organizations, nonprofits and environmental preservation groups to enhance our habitats and increase community awareness about wildlife preservation.

Sue Kelsey, GM’s biodiversity program manager had this to say about the projects: “The habitats on our properties won’t thrive without the help of our employees. Their work exemplifies the deep respect and appreciation our company has for the nature that surrounds and interacts with our facilities.”

“…both instances were the smoothest transactions I’ve ever had with dealerships.” Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC Reviews

At Sweeney Chevrolet Buick GMC our top priority is completely satisfying each and every customer who walks through our Youngstown, Ohio doors. When a customer is searching for a new or used car, we pride ourselves on providing a quick and easy buying process.  When we get online reviews like this from our customers it lets us know that we’ve met those goals.

Take a look at what Adam Booth had to say about buying his 2013 Chevrolet Silverado from Brett Barnhouse. This is Adam’s second car in 7 months from us, previously purchasing a used Chevrolet Impala:

I just traded in my truck for a 2013 Silverado which will make the second vehicle purchase I’ve made through Brett Barnhouse at Sweeney in 7 months. Last April we purchased a previously owned Impala through Brett as well. I’ve now been through the process of purchasing a used car at Sweeney and trading-in for a new truck, and both instances were the smoothest transactions I’ve ever had with dealerships. Brett and the rest of the staff at Sweeney were knowledgeable, friendly and super helpful. I should be set for a little while given that I just got two new cars, but in the future I know I will be going back to see Brett. I would highly recommend the same to all of my family and friends!
