2017 Buick Envision



HOUSTON — In our modern driving society, crossovers are the station wagons of the seventies. Fortunately for us, shape, power, and fuel efficiency have all improved since then, and you don’t get the two kids making awkward faces at you from their rear-facing back seat. I only make the station wagon comparison to say, they’re everywhere. People with or without kids, men and women of all ages and demographics, are driving crossovers.

Buick Cascada — Open air fun for four

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

If you are looking for an affordable convertible that can carry four adults in a smattering of luxury and a measure of comfort take note. 
While the Chrysler Sebring and Toyota Solaria drop tops served the purpose of offering four-passenger open-air transportation for more than a decade, there's currently a void in that segment.

2016 Buick Cascada

KEY WEST, Fla. — The all-new Cascada is the first drop top to adorn a Buick emblem since the Reatta convertible whose production ended in 1991. Sales were dismal, with fewer than 2,500 units sold, when Buick pulled the plug. Cascada, Spanish for “waterfall” and built in Poland, has been selling under the Opel, Vauxhall and Holden badges for the past two years, is beginning to arrive at U.S. dealer showrooms now.

Buick Regal GS AWD — Stylish and fun to drive

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

The Regal GS has lost some of its luster within the Buick ranks, but it still remains the hard-edged driver's car that brings European-like performance to the General Motors brand. It's not that the GS has actually lost anything — in fact, it has gained even more competence with the addition of an optional all-wheel drive system — it's just that Buick has elected to put the same performance-happy turbocharged four-cylinder engine in nearly all of its Regals.

2014 Buick Regal AWD



INDIANAPOLIS — It’s been snowing and icing all over.  Like, a lot.  Some cities are handling it better than others, which will likely cause some mayors to have longer tenures than others.  A European-engineered sport sedan with all-wheel-drive would be perfect for the nasty precipitation, making dust of city streets while still a blast when pavement clears. 

Buick LaCrosse — Quiet luxury

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

This fall we discovered what we learned years ago — the current-generation LaCrosse is the best large sedan Buick has produced in years including a stylish exterior that that has lost none of its luster since its 2009 introduction, a handsome cabin with upgraded technology, strong performance from a 3.6
-liter V-6, and a smooth and quiet ride.

Buick Encore — Tidy, compact crossover

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

Luxury in a small, fuel-efficient package is the new hot commodity in the automotive world. We want our good stuff, but we want it in a neat container that makes us feel good about saving precious resources and disposable income that otherwise would land in the pockets of big oil. In this vein, Buick has offered up for 2013 the very tidy and compact crossover Encore.

Buick Verano Turbo — Energetic performance

By Jim Meachen and Ted Biederman

For the first time in nearly 15 years a small Buick returned to the fold last year slotting into the new Buick lineup of smaller, firmer cars with European design and flare. Buick completed its transformation introducing an entry-level luxury car that rivals anything in its class. The compact Verano offers handsome styling, a comfortable ride; an attractive and quiet interior loaded with quality materials; nimble handling; and fuel efficiency.

2013 Buick Enclave



BIRMINGHAM, Mich. — Five years may not seem like much in the overall span of time. However, in the case of the Buick Enclave it’s been the length of an evolution. First debuted as a 2008 model in May 2007, the Enclave is a prime example of a vehicle whose instant success more than doubled Buick's annual sales volume.
