    All-new, Epsilon II-based Buick Lucerne

    May of you have asked me to draw a next-gen Buick Lucerne, so I did!

    It's Epsilon II-based, FWD/AWD. Two engine choices - 3.6L DIV6 pulling out 291hp for CX and CXL, and 3.6L DIV6 Turbo pulling out 345hp for Ultra. Standard/Optional equipment is at the level of the Enclave.

    So, may I present...

    Nice, but I haven't seen a FWD or AWD car with that kind of front overhang. It looks cool, though, similar to the Chinese Park Ave.

    The wouldn't have a problem selling a car that looked like that.

    Thanks for the comments!

    I actually made two attempts on this one - the first attempt was basically a stretched Invicta concept with door handles.

    Then I drew this one, and decided I liked the Enclave-inspired styling better.

    Very nice. I like the Enclave cues. What were you thinking for the interior? A more Invicta style or something new and better.

    Sort of a blend between the Invicta, Enclave, and my Saturn VISTA drawing (as both vehicles are on the same architecture).

    Nowhere. GM doesn't pay attention to "commoners" like myself.

    Interior coming soon.

    Thanks for the comments.

    If Buick DOES build this peace of art, I will be the first in line to order one. Great job.

    Also, sign up on my new, Pontiac tribute site, let your voice be heard at:

    Seriously, you should consider this, A.J. You've drawn a TON of cars that I would buy in a heartbeat.
