Looks pretty nice, that would be a nice entry level car for Buick if the LaCrosse does become the Lucerne replacement.


Now that the LaCrosse is on hold a little bit I wonder if they are not re-thinking the name again, if this comes over or goes into production here as the Regal, then perhaps the LaCrosse name could be changed to something more Buick-ie, like Invicta or Wildcat, hell even LeSabre or Electra would be cool.

wow I think i am the only person who finds this car lacking in the face. It looks like a multitude of other cars out there, almost half baked. Certainly not like the amazing concept. Sigh

Okay GM...

Bring this over stateside. Keep the name.

Take LaCrosse and replace the Lucerne with it. I don't care what you do with the name for that one, keep LaCrosse, rename it Lucerne, name it the Invicta, whatever.

I agree big time....when I was a kid the 1964 Electra and the first Riviera were mind blowers, risky yet regal. I still can't believe that Buick did not adapt the facial design language of the Riviera concept into their cars.

I so wish they'd opted for a classical Buick name for this car.

I can't understand why this car would not be sold in the U.S.
1. It is attractive. So what if it is similar in size to the G-6. The G-6 has been largely fleeted out, and this could give buyers a unique option.
2. I think the name changes have scared a lot of Buick buyers away. There is nothing familiar to them.

DUUUUUUUUUHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!


It does not look like the Invicta concept because it's not, this is a Buick Regal, basically a China built Buick version of the Opel/Vauxhall Insignia, the Invicta based car is the LaCrosse(or whatever it will finally be called) that will be made in Fairfax KS.

It looks pretty good. What size/class of car is this?
Oversized/fancy economy car. It's a V6 front driver like everything else.

It looks like a big Mercury Milan, except that it probably cost way more and hopefully it's as compotent as the Malibu and Aura with a much better interior. It pretty much has to be the economy Buick....extremely quiet, powerful, and safe.

If Buick seriously won't sell a RWD car like the Chinese Park Avenue then they might as will turn their keys in.

Looks better as the Regal than I was expecting. Bring it here undercut the ES/TL and we may have a winner thanks to people spending less.
