2017 Buick LaCrosse in Depth: Cosseting, Comfy, Classy

The job of Buick’s flagship sedan is difficult—to keep current customers happy and also entice new buyers to the brand—but the svelte LaCrosse is ready for the task. Depending on its equipment, the LaCrosse can either be a plush-riding land yacht or, thanks to an optional adaptive suspension, 20-inch wheels, and available all-wheel drive, a […]

All Hatch All the Time: We Drive Buick’s 2018 Regal Sportback, TourX, and GS

The new 2018 Buick Regal lineup throws the conventional sedan body style out the window in favor of a trio of more compelling options: the Regal Sportback and the Regal GS, both hatchbacks, and the Regal TourX wagon. Even though these Regals continue to share much with the Europe-market Opel Insignia, these redesigned versions aim for […]

Gorgeous Sport: 310-HP Buick Regal GS Revealed!

The previous Buick Regal was something of a poor man’s Audi A4, but the new-for-2018 Regal Sportback, with its hatchback body style, aims a bit higher—at the stylish and practical Audi A5 Sportback, perhaps?

2018 Buick Regal TourX Dissected: Exterior, Chassis, Powertrain, and More!

  The station wagon has long faced extinction, but a counterpoint to the rise of the crossover and the decline of the sedan can be found in the current wobbly resuscitation of the wagon.

eAssist Returns: 2018 Buick LaCrosse Hybrid Raises MPGs, Lowers the Price

Buick is bringing a mild hybrid back to the LaCrosse lineup for 2018. As in the previous-generation LaCrosse, the system is called eAssist and will be the base powertrain for the big Buick sedan.

2017 Buick Enclave in Depth: Does the Crossover Relic Still Hold Value?

When it debuted as a 2008 model, the Buick Enclave was lauded for its breakthrough design, quiet cabin, and revitalizing effect on the Buick brand. Now in its ninth model year without a major update, its dated interior, archaic infotainment system, and languid performance all shine a harsh light on the Enclave’s age. Fortunately, 2017 […]

The Enclave has been a big deal for Buick. First introduced way back in the pre-GM-bankruptcy days of 2007, it initially had GMC and Saturn siblings (the Acadia and the Outlook); the Saturn fell away and the Chevrolet Traverse now completes the trio. The Enclave was a hit right off the bat, and its sales […]
