Whether your grad just finished high school or college, a new Buick or GMC model can help them tackle the road ahead. A new vehicle offers a great way to explore the world, cultivate responsibility, commute to work, and more.

Here's what we recommend for your new grads:

2018 Buick Regal Sportback 

The 2018 Buick Regal Sportback is perfect for young drivers due to its manageable size; safety features; suite of technologies, and sleek, luxurious vibe. Your graduate will enjoy a driving experience like no other. Despite being smaller than its popular LaCrosse sibling, the Regal Sportback doesn’t downsize the things you love most about Buick cars, namely their smooth ride, premium interiors, and fun-to-drive turbocharged engines.

The 2018 Regal Sportback houses a 2.0-liter direct-injected turbocharged engine that generates 250 horsepower. Built for comfort and long-haul cruising, the 2018 Regal Sportback handles rough surfaces with ease and ensures ride quality is always supple and supremely quiet, even at highway speeds. Fuel economy is one of its many high points, with an EPA-estimated 22 mpg city and 32 mpg highway.*

Key features of the Regal Sportback include the standard OnStar® system, which provides automatic crash notification, on-demand roadside assistance, and stolen vehicle assistance; antilock disc brakes; traction and stability control; 4G WiFi connectivity; a six-speaker audio system; and an optional Driver Confidence package. The 2018 Buick Regal Sportback makes it easy for grads to have a celebratory adventure with its innovative technology, powerful performance, and luxurious presence.

2018 GMC Terrain

If your grad would prefer the look and handling of a larger vehicle, be sure to explore the 2018 GMC Terrain. Stylish, powerful, and with engineering you can feel, the Terrain is a great choice for grads who like to do it all. The Terrain is available with multiple modern and efficient turbocharged powertrain options, and it's paired with a six-speed automatic and either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive for the ultimate driving experience.

Apart from providing excellent performance and handling, the 2018 Terrain continues its reputation as one of the most versatile and appealing vehicles around. Key features include the available IntelliLink® infotainment system, including navigation and a color touch screen; standard OnStar® 4G LTE capability and a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot that can support up to seven devices; a MultiFlex sliding rear seat; a 60/40 split-folding seatback; a cargo area with 31.6 cubic feet of space (expandable to 63.3 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down); and standard StabiliTrak® stability control.

The 2018 GMC Terrain has been specially designed to keep your grad (and their passengers) safe, connected, and entertained, no matter where the road may lead.

GM College Discount

GM also offers a special program, reserved for college graduates, called the GM College Discount. This program is designed to help young people start their adult lives successfully behind the wheel of eligible 2017 model year or newer GM models.** The program offers convenient savings and easy approval for young people buying or leasing a new car. An excellent way to build credit with flexible and competitive finance and lease packages, the GM College Discount is a great choice for any new grad.
