You don’t have to limit yourself to the choice between an SUV or sedan any longer, because a new breed of vehicle — the crossover — is the perfect combination of cargo space, performance and fuel efficiency. Add the Cadillac luxury of the 2014 SRX, and you’ve got one of the most driver-friendly vehicles on the market.

Luxury Cadillac Interior

Cadillacs are known for their innovative technology and luxury interior, and they certainly didn’t cut any corners with the SRX. From the “Ultraview” sunroof and Bose active noise cancelation to the heated and ventilated seats, rear entertainment system and state-of-the-art cargo area, you’ll continue finding convenient gadgets and features long after you’ve purchased your brand new SRX.

Unprecedented Safety

You may be looking at a crossover vehicle because you need room for kids, pets or other cargo, and the 2014 Cadillac SRX was designed to keep you and your passengers safer than ever. With side blind zone alerts, rear cross traffic alerts, auto-dry brakes and IntelliBeam headlamps, you’ll feel safe day and night in this luxury crossover.

Sleek Cadillac Exterior

The 2014 SRX’s bold design couples well with fine touches like roof rails, fender vents, adaptive headlamps and the sharp Cadillac grille that set it aside from all other crossovers in the industry. The 20-inch aluminum wheels and LED taillamps are just a couple more features that will make your new SRX stand out everywhere you go.

Premier Performance

With an acceleration speed of zero to 60 miles-per-hour in 7.1 seconds, the SRX simply blows the competition out of the water. And whether you’re driving on your daily commute or a cross-country road trip, you’ll appreciate the fuel efficiency of the responsive and powerful V6 engine.

Getting Your Bill DeLord Vehicle Ready to Roll This spring!

http://www.flickr.com/photos/barkbud/3595680965/sizes/z/

Spring cleaning isn’t just for homes anymore. Taking care of the interior and exterior of your vehicle, especially after a long winter of snow, salt and road grime, can keep your vehicle in top condition for years to come.

Brush Out Your Mats

Dirt, salt, sand and even French fries have a way of digging themselves into your floor mats. Before you vacuum up the grime, use a stiff brush to loosen up the dirt and bring it to the surface of your mats. This same method works well on all of the carpets and soft upholstery (not leather) in your vehicle.

Hand Wash Your Vehicle

Avoid automatic car washes and get a better clean by doing the job yourself. Use a soft sponge and a car wash solution to wipe the dirt and grime away, and always be sure to dry your vehicle with a squeegee or chamois after you rinse.

Degrease Your Wheels

It’s amazing how much better clean wheels can make your vehicle look. Use a degreaser to clean brake dust off your rims and a foam tire-cleaning product to give your wheels an extra shine.

Accessorize for Spring

The cold winter weather may have had you running from your car to the front door of your home without taking much time to consider upgrades. Here at Bill DeLord GMC, Cadillac and Buick, we have all of the accessories you need to make your vehicle stand out. From splash guards to spoilers, high-end wheels and remote starters, we’ve got all of the best accessories here at Bill DeLord.

2014 Buick Enclave

Photo by Bill DeLord

When you’re looking for a vehicle with all of the interior space of an SUV that’s as comfortable to drive as a luxury sedan, you don’t need to look any farther than the 2014 Buick Enclave. The sophisticated and spacious interior combined with five-star safety features and a powerful yet efficient V6 engine turn this practical vehicle into the luxury ride of your dreams.

Interior Features

Buick wasn’t shy with high-end features when creating the Enclave. The premium leather heated (and cooled) front seats, memorized seat positioning, comfortable second and third row seats and pleasant wood and chrome interior tones make this vehicle one you’ll simply love to drive.

Safety Features

Safety comes first in the Buick Enclave, and that means side blind spot alerts, rear cross-traffic alerts, lane departure warnings, forward collision alerts and a total of seven air bags are always there to protect you and your passengers.

High-End Appeal

You might have to take a second glance at the Buick Enclave, because its sleek design is one that has never been seen before. From the High Intensity Discharged (HID) head lamps that adjust left and right with your turns to the panoramic moon roof, rear skylight, roof rack cross rails and low-profile exterior design, you simply won’t believe there is so much space inside a vehicle that looks this good on the outside.

Top-Quality Performance

You don’t have to push a button on your Enclave to tell it to start using all-wheel drive in poor conditions — your vehicle will do it for you. The 2014 Enclave automatically engages your all-wheel drive and monitors the traction of your wheels whenever you start to slip. And if you want your luxury Enclave to be an adventure vehicle, it has a 4,500-pound towing capacity too. Whatever you want your 2014 Buick Enclave to be, it’s ready to exceed your expectations.

The 2014 Buick Enclave at DeLord

Here at Bill DeLord GMC, Cadillac and Buick in Lebanon, Ohio, we’ve got a wide variety of 2014 Buick Enclaves in stock and ready to be driven off our lot today. Come see us six days a week and get in your new or pre-owned luxury vehicle today.

Spring is finally around the corner, and there’s no better time to start planning your spring adventures throughout our beautiful state of Ohio than now. From indoor events that you can enjoy in the cool weather to outdoor excursions for warmer days, there’s an adventure waiting for you.

Family Fun

Get your summer fix in the colder spring temperatures with a road trip to Kalahari Indoor Water Park. Located in Sandusky, this water park includes an indoor wave for surfing and boogie boarding. If you’ll be in the Sandusky area when it warms up a bit, you won’t want to miss out on the world famous Cedar Point amusement park featuring over 15 roller coasters and rides for every age group.

For year-round fun, cruise over to the Toledo Zoo and see some of the world’s most unique animals in indoor and outdoor exhibits as well as exciting tours, concerts and shows.

Cultural Adventures

Our home state of Ohio boasts tons of museums, multicultural theaters and live music venues to turn your spring road trip into an exciting cultural experience. Head over to the shores of Lake Erie and enjoy a comedy in the barn-theater setting of the Rabbit Run Theater.

Art connoisseur and newbies alike will fall in love with the Columbus Museum of Art. Sit back and admire the world-famous artwork or get involved in a workshop with your road trip companions.

Historic Sites

No road trip is complete without a stop at one of Ohio’s many historic sites. Celebrate Black History Month and make a day of checking out the Underground Railroad sites in Zanesville and Oberlin, then cruise down to the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center in Cincinnati.

If you’ll be in the Dayton area, don’t miss a trip to the National Museum of the United States Air Force. Even the kids will love the historic artifacts and awesome Wright Brothers display.

Jay Leno Takes Sloan Museum’s 1910 Buick Racecar for a Spin

Sometimes it seems like celebrities get to have all of the fun, and in this instance, it’s true. Few people even get to see the Buick racecar that Louis Chevrolet raced in 1910, because it typically rests in the Sloan Museum in Flint, Mich.

Jeremy Dimick, an employee at the Sloan Museum, brought the car to Los Angeles, Calif. to be featured on Jay Leno’s web series, “Jay Leno’s Garage.” The appearance was such a big event for the small museum and their prized vehicle that General Motors actually aided in funding the trip.

The Vehicle

The 1910 Buick Bug features a 622-cubic-inch engine with four pistons and brakes that certainly wouldn’t pass inspections in 2014. Amazingly for its time, the Buick Bug could reach a speedy 105 miles per hour, which was extremely dangerous for the design of the vehicle.

Even more dangerous, the vehicle actually doesn’t go in reverse because it was strictly made for racing. In the video, you’ll see that Leno gets trapped in a driveway, and Dimick comes to the rescue to push him back out onto the road.

Although it may not be safe on our highways or racetracks in 2014, the 1910 Buick Bug is admirably gorgeous, remarkably loud and a true piece of automobile history. The car is now back in the Sloan Museum, so be sure to check it out in person on your next trip to Flint, Mich.

The Video

Watch Leno discuss the details of the car then take it for a spin in this episode of Jay Leno’s Garage.

Bill DeLord Buick, GMC and Cadillac

While we may not have the 1910 Buick Bug here in stock at Bill DeLord Buick, GMC and Cadillac, we do have a huge selection of new and pre-owned vehicles for prices that will blow you away. Come visit us for our Luxury Drive event, where we’ll get you in a brand new Cadillac SRX for just $329 a month. Stop in and see us on Columbus Avenue in Lebanon, Ohio today.

There’s no better place in Ohio to enjoy a date night than Cincinnati. From award-winning theater to five-star dining and live music to keep you dancing until closing time, there’s no better place to enjoy the ultimate Valentine’s Day than Cinci. Choose one of these hot spots for date night, and you’ll certainly have a hard time topping it next year.

Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park

Sick of the usual dinner-and-a-movie date? Buy tickets to the 7:30 p.m. presentation of “4000 Miles” at the Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park on Valentine’s night. Find out first-hand why Time Magazine named “4000 Miles” the best play of the season. This heartwarming tale is the perfect combination of humor and drama that insists you leave with a smile on your face.

A Night on the Riverwalk

Wear some warm clothes and cozy up with your loved one on a romantic walk along the Riverwalk. Enjoy gorgeous nighttime views of the Cincinnati skyline, take some photos and pop in a number of restaurants for a drink and an appetizer to warm up. There’s no better way to spend Valentine’s Day than savoring some time with the one you love and appreciating the gorgeous city you call home.

Dinner at Abigail Street

“If it ain’t broken, don’t fix it.” Dining out for Valentine’s Day may seem a little cliche, but if you choose the right restaurant, you could easily make this the best Valentine’s Day yet. Culture your taste buds with a trip to Abigail Street — a Mediterranean style restaurant offering small servings, so you can try a little bit of everything. Split a handful of plates with your date, and you’re guaranteed to leave satisfied but not sluggish.

Bill DeLord GMC, Cadillac and Buick

There’s no better place to be than Cincinnati over the holidays. With city-wide traditions from sleigh rides and fireworks to the classic Christmas productions, no city can put you in the holiday spirit like Cincy.

Whether you’re stopping by the Queen City for a visit or you’re a long-time local, there are a few Cincinnati holiday traditions that simply shouldn’t be missed.

Fountain Square

Make it a holiday tradition to visit the U.S. Bank Ice Rink at Fountain Square at least once during the season. The rink is open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekdays and 10 a.m. to 12 a.m. on weekends, so don’t miss out on one of Cincinnati’s favorite holiday pastimes.

A Christmas Tree Tradition

Often regarded as “sleigh rides” by the kids, a horse-drawn carriage ride through Big Tree Plantation’s field of over 50,000 Christmas trees is the best way to choose your living room’s centerpiece every year.

A Christmas Carol

Have a scrooge in your family? Get everyone in the holiday spirit with a visit to see A Christmas Carol at the Playhouse in the Park. This intimate theater can keep even the most restless children interested in the production.

PNC Festival of Lights

Perhaps the Christmas tradition with the deepest roots in Cincinnati is the PNC Festival of Lights. The display has been around for 29 years and features over 2 million holiday lights. A perfect alternative to an average date night or a fun tradition for the kids, the Festival of Lights is sure to please every visitor.

Saturdays at Macy’s

Take a trip to Macy’s at Fountain Square every Saturday night during the holiday season. Bring the whole family too, because you won’t be there to shop. Watch Santa rappel from the 525 Vine Building to Macy’s rooftop. The 20-minute event is followed by a gorgeous fireworks display and plenty of hot chocolate.

Bill DeLord Buick, GMC and Cadillac

Make a new Cincinnati tradition this holiday season by shopping at Bill DeLord Buick, GMC and Cadillac. Take a look at our incredible holiday offers and surprise someone special with a five-star gift from our showroom.

Cadillac recently introduced its all-new, fourth-generation Escalade – the most sophisticated, comfortable and technologically advanced Escalade yet. Although the exterior of this first-class vehicle presents some remarkable new features, you’ll notice even more incredible changes in the new Escalade’s interior. Whether you appreciate the previous Escalade’s design for its sophisticated exterior, comfortable interior or the power under the hood, you won’t be disappointed by the 2015 model.

The Exterior

Although it still has the recognizable look of previous Escalades, the fourth-generation features upgrades that make it look a bit more streamline than earlier models. The vertical taillights extend all the way up the rear of the vehicle and offer exceptional visibility with LED lights. The wrap-around headlights are equally as impressive, and the classy Cadillac grill adds a nice touch of familiarity.

The All-New Interior

The interior of the 2015 Escalade is really where it steps above the previous generations. The seats were intended to feel more like furniture than SUV seats, so riders will appreciate the added comfort, and owners will love the durable, premium materials.

Technology is present in just about every aspect of the interior too. The body structure is made of an acoustic material combined with Bose noise cancelling technology to keep the inside of the vehicle substantially more quiet than it used to be. Tablet and smartphone compatible touch screens, voice control and a Blu-Ray entertainment system in the rear really push this Escalade above all other luxury SUVs.

Added Safety

With the added technology of the 2015 Escalade comes additional safety features. Buyers can opt for a driver awareness package, which features a lane departure warning system, collision alert and a vibrating safety alert seat for the drive. Rear traffic alerts, lane change alerts and blind spot alerts come standard on all 2015 Escalades.

Bill DeLord Cadillac

The list of incredible features in the all-new 2015 Escalade is nearly unending, and at Bill DeLord GMC, Buick and Cadillac, we can’t wait to have it on our showroom floor. Stop and see the next generation Escalade here in Lebanon, Ohio in early spring 2014, and be sure to visit us for all of your holiday vehicle shopping needs.
