Customers will have a chance to own another Olympic souvenir…

GM has announced that they will be selling the vehicles used to transport athletes, Olympic officials and international dignitaries during the 2010 Winter Games. Dealerships outside of the Vancouver area will have a chance to bid on the vehicles at an auction, and any interested customers have been encouraged to contact their dealer to get any details. All vehicles will be specially-priced and permanently marked with a commemorative Vancouver 2010 medallion adorned with the iconic inukshuk symbol and Olympic rings. Here is the full press release from GM:

Vancouver – More than 4,600 fuel-efficient Olympic-branded vehicles have been a familiar sight on the streets of Vancouver and Whistler in recent months, as they whisked athletes, Olympic officials and international VIPs and dignitaries to and from competitions and celebrations. Once the Paralympic Winter Games conclude in late March, fans and consumers will have an opportunity to drive away with a piece of Vancouver 2010’s legacy. Possibly the best Olympic souvenir of all – a Chevrolet, Buick, GMC or Cadillac vehicle that may have been the one to drive one of our incredible Canadian athletes to the performance of their lives will be available to consumers.  

“Wherever I go during the Games, everyone wants to know what will happen to the vehicles once the events have wrapped up,” said Tom Laurie, GM of Canada’s manager of Olympic partnership. “We’ve been flooded with requests from Olympic revelers wanting to take home more than just a pair of red mittens. Canadians want to take advantage of this special opportunity to own a vehicle that was part of our country’s Olympic legacy.”

GM dealerships from Squamish to Hope are already taking customer deposits on Olympic fleet vehicles, which will be ready for pick up beginning in mid-March. Dealerships outside the area will bid on the remaining vehicles in an auction, and Canadian customers across the country are encouraged to contact their local dealer for details. All fleet vehicles will be specially-priced and permanently marked with a commemorative Vancouver 2010 medallion adorned with the iconic inukshuk symbol and Olympic rings. Available models include:

  • Chevrolet Equinox, Malibu (Hybrid), Impala, Traverse, Suburban & Tahoe
  • Buick Lucerne & Enclave
  • Cadillac DTS, CTS Sport Sedan & Sport Wagon, Escalade (Hybrid) & SRX
  • GMC Acadia, Terrain, Yukon (Hybrid models available) & Yukon XL

 

As the Official Vehicle Partner of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, GM of Canada is proudly providing 1,500 vehicles for the Paralympic Winter Games. The Paralympic vehicles will be made available to Canadians in April.

“The vehicle fleet was brought to life by the thousands of Vancouver 2010 volunteers who drove them,” said Laurie. “As a ‘thank you’ to those 46,000 volunteers, GM has given them each a $1,000 credit towards the purchase of a GM vehicle.”

From the North American International Auto Show – The GMC Acadia Denali

Here is a post for fans familiar with the current Yukon and Sierra Denali lines – the GMC Acadia will be available in the swanky, upscale trim level for the 2011 model year, the first time a crossover will carry the Denali tag. Differences from the run-of-the-mill Acadia include mahogany trim, perforated leather heated and cooled seats, additional ambient lighting and some standard features that are optional on an SLE or SLT model (navigation, tri-zone climate control, heads up display, and a sunroof.)

On the outside is where the Denali really shines (literally and figuratively) with monotone paint available in Summer White, Quicksilver Metallic, Carbon Black, Red Jewel Tintcoat and White Diamond Tricoat, polished 6-spoke 20″ wheels, and the familiar honeychrome grille from the Yukon/Sierra Denali.

No word on price yet, but keep your eye out as we expect to start seeing them around the third-quarter of 2010.
