    Entirely new Buick lineup within 22 months

    Summer 2016 new LaCrosse

    LAIAS November 2016 new Regal

    NAIAS January 2017 new Enclave, plus a surprise?

    By September 2017 new Buick grill with color tri shield on Encore, Cascada, and Envision

    By Sept 17 we could also see next generations Cascada and Encore, but at the very least new facias for them, according to Allred all Buicks will have new grill treatment by MY 2018

    Can't help but think GM made a huge mistake by delaying new Enclave, and moving LaCrosse up. Enclave very dated in terms of technology.

    Good info...interesting that the grill will change...

    The products nice but not my personal choice and I believe I'm unfortunately in the age bracket of most of their customers....

    I prefer a little most sport

    Thank goodness on the grill. I hope they are toned down like on the new Lacrosse.
    They were simply getting too big and looking comical.

    Do you know this is the case? I mean that GM deliberately delayed the replacements of Lamdas and fast-tracked the new FWD sedans?

    Buick Enclave was introduced in 2007 for MY 2008. LaCrosse in 2009 for 2010. Next gen LaCrosse is coming out this summer before a new Enclave. Current gen LaCrosse is wrapping up 7th year, Enclave in its 9th year and there will be a 10th for 2017 before next gen

    Any word on the Verano? I'm a fan, would consider one over a Cruze for my next car. But I'd like to see better MPG and new grille along the lines of new Lacrosse. AWD too, but I'm not holding my breath...

    Next ride, pre-pandemic: Maybe a 2021 2.0T CT4, weekend car, keep the Sonic as DD
    Next ride, post-pandemic: Keep driving the Sonic!

    Fwiw I really like the present yet aging verano we have now.

    This is a very good value and a very good vehicle.

    The next verano in the USA if it's based on what we ve seen from china I would be less than impressed from what we seen recently...

    Style wise anyway.

    Re: Entirely new Buick lineup within 22 months

    Exciting to see a 'new' Buick line-up within 2 years time.

    LaCrosse kicks it off, with Regal and Verano next year. Envision keeps it going until the updated Encore, and new Enclave in late 2017. Cascada isn't well loved, but it fills a niche. All together, that's a solid line up.

    All it needs it a true halo model... A nice RWD coupe, to bolster the GS line, would work wonders, me thinks.

    Also, unless I've missed the memo, the current Verano is built in Michigan, and there hasn't been word of it moving else where?

    Re: Entirely new Buick lineup within 22 months

    I would like to know why Buick, at least on the 2017 LaCrosse, moved to RWB tri-shield but keeps the mono-chrome one on the steering wheel, looks stupid to me.
    "The car's brilliant and ... a great surprise, pleasant surprise for all Corvette lovers everywhere ... a huge shock to our competitors ... because I don't think anybody was expecting something that good. What pleases me the most about it was that ... I can say this is the first car that's come out, that was done since I left.

    Yup. The Cruze Hatch is my current favorite GM car (that I can afford!)...but I'd consider a Verano if the next gen is decent.

    I also really like the Cruze hatch but I still wish they would utilize the platform more with a wagon variant, they certainly have the capacity to do so.

    Yes I'm still mad about the HHR!!!

    The Enclave is long in the tooth but sales are still strong so it seems alright for its next gen to be delayed
