Today my son and i attended a GM Main Street test drive event at Reliant Stadium in Houston. It was a nice event and had a variety of cars and trucks from Chevy, Buick, and GMC. No Cadillac vehicles were here. There were also competitor vehicles such as Tundra, Sequoia, Explorer, F250, F150, Taurus, several acuras, Sonata, and an ES350.
F250 and 2500- were very similar in ride but different in personality. F250 interior was much more "in your face" than the 2500.
Buick LaCross- very nice car and very peppy in the straightaway. Superior to the ES350.
Buick Regal Turbo- Nice interior with firm, sporty seating. However, a big disappointment in acceleration. When I floored it, i could literally count "1 thousand, 2 thousand" before the car responded. Very surprising and unacceptable. There may have been something wrong with the car as it took me 3 tries to start the engine when i first got in the car.
GMC Terrain- this was a 4 cyl and I was shocked at how quick it was. I thought maybe they gave me the 6 cyl model by mistake.
Tundra- interior very plain, but the 5.7 V8 was very quick. Did not like the instrument design at all with all the differenent sized gauges.
I didn't drive a Corvette or Camaro SS as the lines were too long. I did drive a Camaro V6 which was very nice.
