Buick To Become Trendy Again By Selling Only SUVs

With the recent demise of the large Buick LaCrosse in the US and questions surrounding the future of the Regal now that PSA owns Opel, Buick may much sooner than later sell only SUVs.

We suppose this is cutting to chase as well as allowing the situation to follow its natural course. Buick’s struggled for, let’s face it, decades in North America. If it wasn’t for the Chinese market’s infatuation with GM’s mid-range brand, it would likely have died at the end of the last decade and perhaps Pontiac would still be with us today.

There’s no need to look back now. GM announced a while back that the Buick LaCrosse was to be cut along with the Volt, Cruze, Impala and others. The Cascada convertible, a car that was never offered in Canada, is also getting the axe after 2019. And that leaves the Regal which will certainly disappear as well because of the Opel/PSA situation. It has been cut from GM Mexico’s portfolio – this move will surely occur in the remainder of North America.

This leaves the Buick Encore, the Envision and the Enclave. Word out on the web says that Buick is working on adding a fourth SUV to the lineup. The new Chevy Blazer could serve as a slightly more dynamic base for this upcoming utility vehicle which may go by the name Envista.
