Will GM Start Offering An Illuminated Buick Emblem On Production Models?

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - The 2018 Buick Enspire concept crossover unveiled at the 2018 Shanghai Motor Show earlier this year is loaded not only with some of the freshest and most practical high-tech features that GM’s most historic brand thought to throw at it, but with some cutting-edge styling, as well.

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - I couldn’t even peel out of the garage in Manhattan before someone had stopped me. “Is that a Buick?” they shouted. “Yep!

That was a common refrain I heard while driving the 2018 Buick Regal GS around New England. Thing is, it wasn’t just a looker; the Regal GS is legitimately well-executed and even fun.

I Think I Like the Buick Rendezvous

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - The Pontiac Aztek has firmly cemented its place in history as being one of the ugliest automobiles of all time. So ugly, in fact, that it played a role in killing an 84-year-old brand. But it has a corporate cousin that isn't nearly as reviled as the Aztek -- and it's a crossover that I think I actually kind of like. I'm talking about the Buick Rendezvous.
