    Park Avenue returns

    I have no idea where this'll fit in Buick's lineup, but this is a car that is a bit bigger then the avalon, very comfort and luxury oriented, set to compete with the new ES. it will be based on the Aura platform.



    yeah, i know it looks infinitiesh

    Like the drawing but that is no P/A it has to be bigger, DTS sized and make a sport variant called the Electra and Electra 225. Otherwise nice but strecth a little bit. And make it RWD.

    well i dont really want it to be sport, this is solely luxury. I think buick should focus on luxury, while cadillac can have the RWDs.

    Not bad! I only have one problem with Buick...

    While I like Buick as a brand, I feel there is no real use for it in GM's portfolio. Cadillac is about pure luxury and has specific models for performance and most models are RWD. Cadillac competes very well with the likes of BMW & Mercedes Benz. Buick's problem is that it basically goes head to head with Saab as sporty entry level luxury.

    While Buick seems to be doing well in Asia/Pacific, it isn't doing so well in NA and there are no Buicks sold in Europe. Saab, on the other hand is a European brand and is already sold in both Europe and NA and has the distinct advantage of being established in Europe as a Scandanavian brand and not nearly as "American" as Buick which may actually help Saab's growth.

    Basically, I think Buick should be eliminated in NA and only be sold in Asia/Pacific while Saab expands its product line and picks up in NA where Buick leaves off.

    i think buick has more chance then saab for survival in NA. Saab's face alot of competition from other brands that are more prestigious and better built. Looking at its lineup now, many saabs look dated, and some are blatent rebadges of suabrus. Im not much of a buick fan either but i think if both these brands got the axe, or atleast integrated, then GM would be a bit better off.

    Park Avenue is a name for a tamer looking car, LeSabre would work well with this styling.
