Buick

Buick is like GM’s middle car brand, positioned between its basic Chevy brand and luxurious Cadillac brand. It was one of the first automobile companies in the United States and dates all the way back to 1899 when it was called Buick Auto-Vim and Power Company. In 1903 it became Buick Motor Company and has been in business ever since. Over the years, the company has produced a number of iconic vehicles, including the Buick Roadmaster and Buick Super in the 1940s, the Buick Skylark, GSX, Regal, and Riviera in the ‘60s and ‘70s. Some of these names have carried over to today, and Buck’s lineup includes 11 vehicles, more than 50-percent of which are still sedans. It’s actually one of the few automakers that hasn’t announced some push into the SUV segment that will discontinue its lower-riding vehicles, but it’s not likely that the Buick Cascada or Regal TourX will last much longer on the market.

The Wildcat EV Concept is Definitely Not Your Grandma’s Buick

It is Buick’s turn to take over the automotive media with its never-make-it-to-reality concept

With the Avista concept from 2016, we got to know what the then-future of Buick cars would look like. And current Buicks do loosely resemble various design aspects of the concept. Fast-forward to 2022, and we have yet another concept from the GM-owned luxury brand. It is called the Wildcat, and this time it is an EV. This concept will shape the brand’s future models, which will likely be SUVs. Buick also emphasizes the new tri-shield logo, which is now more prominent than ever.

15 Iconic Performance Cars, The 2022 Toyota GR Corolla Would Have No Trouble Keeping Up With

These 15 cars are legendary and the 2022 GR Corolla can give each of them a run for their money

The 2022 Toyota GR Corolla is the latest and most anticipated hot hatchback to come out. We know it has a 300-horsepower version of the 1.6-liter turbocharged inline-three from the GR Yaris and shares the same GR-Four all-wheel-drive system. While we don’t have official performance figures, we know that the smaller, less powerful GR Yaris can reach from 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) in as little as 4.6 seconds. This means that Toyota’s new hot-hatch will be able to keep up with the following iconic performance cars, we enthusiasts lust after.

2022 Buick Enclave

2022 Buick Enclave

The Buick Enclave has been updated for the 2022 model year, with design elements inspired by the Envision and the Encore GX

Judging a book by its cover is something we shouldn’t do, and it applies to us in daily life, including when we choose cars. This flagship seven-seater SUV is so much more than you thought it to be. The 2022 Enclave is not all-new, but has received a major facelift, which makes it look even more attractive on the outside. Although it uses the same drivetrain, which is the 3.6-liter naturally aspirated V-6, it never fails to offer punchy and refined drive quality. The interior is not as flashy as the X5 or the Q8, but the price tag of $42,800 makes the Enclave a better value proposition. If you are curious about its competitors, there is the Acura MDX, Mazda CX-9, and even the Volvo XC90. So, should you consider the 2022 facelifted Enclave, or other SUVs in the segment? We are here to let you know the full picture.

There is a surprising number of project cars for sale, nowadays, and while we are not sure whether to chalk it up to the rise in popularity of electric powertrains or not, the fact is, you can currently get a crazy, partially restored project car, for not a lot of money.

Darth Vader Would Blush At The Sight Of This 1986 Supercharged Buick Regal With Sequential Gears And Over 1,000 Horsepower

Cars from the 1980s are slowly rising in popularity, as cars like the Lancia Delta Integrale and Porsche 928 have become particularly sought-after collector cars. When it comes to American cars from that era, there really isn’t a whole lot of excitement, because of the oil crisis and severe restrictions, choking performance out of cars. That said, the YouTube channel AutoTopiaLA is giving us the tour of a 1986 Buick Regal resto-mod that has almost nothing in common with the original car.

Here’s a List Of Nine Non-Exotic Rare Cars That Hide In Plain Sight

These vehicles aren’t exotic like the Ferraris and Lamborghinis, but some of them are beyond rare

When you talk about rare cars, you probably think of high-end Bugattis, Ferraris, Porsches, etc. No one would think of a regular production car to be a rare one, unless it is a vintage. But, surprisingly, many cars are actually quite rare and get lost in the crowd without getting noticed. Unless you have a keen eye or you’re a diehard petrol head, you too may not have noticed them.

What is the Least Expensive Buick?

The cheapest model in Buick’s lineup is the Buick Encore. This subcompact SUV starts out at around $23,000 but can approach the $30,000 mark when fully equipped. In terms of cars, the cheapest model is the fairly sporty Regal Sportback. It starts out around $25,000 but fully equipped models can approach the $35,000 - $40,000 range.

What is the Sportiest Buick?

Buick is considered a more luxurious line of Chevy, and the only sporty model in the brand’s entire lineup is the Buick Regal GS. It is powered by a 3.6-liter V-6 that’s good for 310 horsepower and 282 pound-feet of torque. It offers some 60 horsepower more than the standard regal and should get you to 60 mph in around six seconds with its top speed sitting around the 150-mph mark. The Buick Regal GS starts out at $39,000 and can go beyond the $40,000 mark when fully equipped.

What is the Most Popular Buick?

Despite Buick’s history with amazing cars, its most popular models are the Encore and Enclave crossovers. The three-row Enclave gets a lot of attention because of its sheer size and utility, but the much smaller Encore crossover is Buicks bestseller with sales increasing steadily since 2013 in the U.S. 2018 was the best year for the Encore yet, with Buick moving a total of 93,073 examples throughout the year. Through June of 2019, the brand has already sold 48,897 examples, so it’s quite possible the Encore will be Buick’s best seller yet again.

What is the Fastest Buick?

The fastest Buick is the Regal GS, which can hit 60 mph in around six seconds and a top speed of 150-ish mph. Of course, Buick is a luxury brand that sits below Cadillac, so none of its models are actually intended to be all that fast – it’s more about comfort than anything.

Are Buicks Reliable?

While everyone seems to think that Japanese and Korean models are generally more dependable, the truth is that Buick actually ranks in the 5 of dependable automotive brands. J.D Power’s 2019 U.S. Vehicle Dependability Study places Buick in the No. 5 spot with a total of 118 problems reported per 100 vehicles made (PP100). This places it below Chevy with 115 PP100, Toyota with 108 PP100, Porsche with 108 PP100, and the No. 1 brand, Lexus, with 106 PP100 reported. Oddly, sister brand Cadillac is ranked No. 24 with a score of 166 PP100, so you’re better off buying a Buick than you are a Cadillac.
