What is Buick QuietTuning™ Technology?

2018 Buick Lacrosse Interior with QuietTuning Technology

Buick showed the auto industry that it was a force with which to be reckoned eleven years ago when it debuted its improved line of vehicles. Gone were the old boxed cars that reminded young consumers of childhood days spent in the car with grandma. The carmaker showed buyers that it, too, could present models worth coveting. Buick continues down its revolutionary path with the QuietTuning feature.

Contrary to what some may think based on its name, the QuietTuning technology of Buick has nothing to do with the engine or its components. This innovative technology, instead, refers to the car's interior and the silence that you get when various sound-reducing aspects are at work.

QuietTuning by Buick uses many traditional methods to provide drivers with a smooth and tranquil ride. There is, of course, the acoustic laminated windshield coupled with the side glass made of similar material. Buick also offers a steel dash panel that boasts of the same acoustic products used to combat sound exuding from the windows.

The isolated engine cradle is about as close as you will get to QuietTuning impact underneath the hood. The feature reduces vibrations that come as the result of a powerful motor. Drivers will only feel the strength of horsepower exude from their Buick cars and trucks. Meanwhile, QuietTuning works to keep the unwanted noise out of the vehicle's interior.

Among the traditional methods of silence inside of the car are more modern approaches to noise cancellation. Quite notably is Buick's Bose system that works to counteract outside sounds with waves of its own. With Bose Active Noise Cancellation, microphones installed in the ceiling work to detect sounds from the outside. The system then analyzes the frequency of such vibrations to provide soundwaves that effectively quiet noise from the outside. You, of course, need to have your stereo powered ON and subwoofers active for this feature to function correctly. Either way, the Bose Active Noise Cancellation is one creative way to provide drivers with a more peaceful experience.

You can learn more about the Buick QuietTuning system when you stop by McKinney Buick and GMC to test drive a 2018 Buick car or truck. We would love to see your smiling face!
