Champion Chevrolet-Buick in La Grange has added the GMC brand to its name and its inventory.


GMC officials recently announced that Champion Chevrolet had been selected to carry GMC trucks and SUVs, in addition to the dealership's Chevy and Buick inventory.

Champion Chevrolet-Buick-GMC is owned by Crestwood resident Fred Tolsdorf.

GMC has a long history of providing quality trucks, but is now transitioning with the addition of more elite interior offerings as well as an abundance of technology.

"GMC is adding new technology to their vehicle line-up that will include integrated phone system, GPS and the type of technology consumers want in their vehicles today,"  said Gene Jacobs, district sales manager for GMC.

Jacobs credits Tolsdorf and Champion Chevrolet as being one of Chevrolet's premier dealerships and a great fit for the GMC line. 

New GMCs are arriving at Champion daily with many more on the way.

And as a dealership that maintains a full inventory of new Chevys, Buicks and now GMCs, Tolsdorf said a major renovation of his dealership will soon be underway. 

The new GMC line at Champon Chevrolet will include Sierra trucks, Yukon, Acadia and Terrain SUVs. 

Champion Chevrolet is located on Ky. 53, less than a mile from Interstate 71.
