Report: GM halts production for cars, fingers point to heavy crossover SUV demand

Like you’ve never heard us tout how popular crossovers are before… What’s going on? Crossovers! “Oh jeeze…” Yea. I know what you’re thinking. We get it. They’re popular. I get it too. But this is how crazy it can get. Car demand is so slow for General Motors, multiple reports indicate the Big Three’s General […]

Report: Buick’s sentencing the Verano sedan to the plank, could happen by 2017

General Motors and Buick tried to make an affordable, compact near-luxury sedan and it was called the Verano and it had a starting price in the low twenty-thousands. Though when fully equipped, it cost nearly as much as some equally well-equipped midsize family sedans, like the Honda Accord and the Toyota Camry. And when you’re […]

Report: The 2016 Buick Envision should top out at $39,065 for the most-expensive trim

CARandDRIVER recently received a tip from some GM contacts to learn that the new 2016 Buick Envision, the company’s all-new Chinese-built midsize crossover, should cost $42,995 to start, when it launches in just a few months time. That might seem a bit expensive at first because that’s even more expensive than the starting price of […]

General Motors’ design chief Ed Welburn to retire in July

Some rather sad news was published on GM’s PR wire to announce that the corporation’s head of design, Ed Welburn, will be retiring on July 1, bringing an end to his long, 44-year career with the automaker. Taking his place will be Michael Simcoe, who was formerly GM’s international design vice president for Australia and […]

2016 New York – Buick Avista Concept ver. 2.0

2016 New York: The Buick Avista shows up in a new hue, and they still won’t make it

Ever since the Buick Avista luxury sports coupe concept showed up at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show, Buick went ahead and crushed our dreams and anticipations by saying they weren’t going to make it. It’s sad because the Avista is probably the best looking car to come from the automaker that’s not 100% an Opel. […]

Report: Buick can build the Avista, but it’s not a priority

AutoBlog’s Greg Migliore was able to sit down with Duncan Aldred, Buick’s vice president of sales and marketing, to bring us somewhat disappointing news about the Avista. The preexisting disappointing part was that Buick almost immediately said the Avista wasn’t to be made, but more recently, AutoBlog’s follow-up had Aldred basically say, they can make it, […]

Report: The Buick Avenir won’t reach production, simply because Cadillac exists

It was a cold, a frigid January in Detroit (when is it ever not…) and Buick rented out an entire warehouse space to reveal the gorgeous Avenir Concept alongside the Opel-based Cascada. The Avenir was a pitch at a potential new large, rear-wheel drive sedan from America’s Trident and everyone had their fingers crossed with […]

2016 Buick Avista Concept

2016 Detroit Preview: The Buick Avista Concept signals the American Trident’s return to rear-wheel drive

Buick hasn’t made a rear-wheel drive car since the Chevrolet TrailBlazer-based, badgineered Buick Rainer…but that really doesn’t count since it was a poor excuse of a midsize Buick SUV….and it’s an SUV. Not exactly the sort of car Buick is known for. So since that’s out of the way, Buick hasn’t made a rear-wheel drive […]

Report: A new Buick is apparently surfacing at next year’s North American International Auto Show

The Detroit Freep reports Buick should be coming up with something new to show off at next year’s North American International Auto Show in 2016. Specifics weren’t very plentiful, obviously, given this is just an indicative report, but The Detroit Free Press thinks it’ll be a production version of the Avenir Concept from this past year’s show. […]

Report: The Buick Envision could come stateside as soon as next spring

Buick has a near-complete crossover lineup with the Encore and the Enclave with the former fulfilling the compact crossover segment and the latter competing in the full-size niche. Though one cannot overlook the seemingly huge gap in the midsize crossover segment, which currently leaves Buick out of one of the most competitive luxury crossover segments. […]
