Buick had big news to announce at the DENT Conference in Sun Valley, Idaho, on March 24—they’re bringing 4G LTE capability to many of their vehicles for 2015 and all of their vehicles by 2016. The 4G LTE technology will be in support of OnStar and will come as an option on the Encore, LaCrosse, Regal, and Verano for 2015.
The list of features that come with this OnStar 4G LTE capability is rather stupendous. First of all, each vehicle will feature a built-in Wi-Fi hot spot. Connect your vehicle to that invisible baby and you can work and play away right from the comfort of your home on wheels—you can check email, watch videos, play games, and more.
Plus, you’ll also get to use the Buick AppShop, which should include services like Slacker Radio, NPR, iHeartRadio, The Weather Channel, Eventseeker, and Priceline. If you’re looking for this technology now, come by Hutch Chevrolet Buick GMC to hear about the Encore or another 2015 model. Or, if you’re a patient type, wait till 2016 when every Buick will feature OnStar 4G LTE capability! The choice is yours—as long as you choose Hutch.
