    I'm not feelin' it. I love that word "Conquistador" but it doesn't work for a Buick name, IMO. And the GMC roots of the concept are not at all hidden. That's a GMC, not a Buick. Sorry.

    And what's with the hazy/snowy effect all over it? It looks bad.

    Nice work. It certainly would be a cool vehicle, but it doesn't scream Buick as-is.

    Interesting work. For me, it looks too rigidly vertical in its stance and does not really evoke "Buick" as they struggle with sweepspear consistency issues. But you rendered it very creatively and with polish.

    I actually love the name of "Buick Conquistador". It is politically incorrect as can be though...

    IF It's A Chevrolet & RWD, Don't ride in it!!!

    ALL Chevy's NEED to be FWD/F-AWD!!!

    If it's a Toyota/Lexus/Scion, Don't ride in/drive it!!

    Is that a sweepspear I see between the rear wheel-arch and side window. Cause if it is, that's quite funny.

    I'm not sure I like it. The name definitely isn't right for a Buick and I really can't see Buick having anything larger than the Enclave. Keep it as a GMC and it would be fine.
