Buick is actually a company owned by General Motors. It is its division, marketed as a premium automobile brand, manufacturing and selling luxury vehicles which belong somewhere above Chevrolet and below Cadillac. Officially Buick holds the pedestal of the oldest American car manufacturer, and the original Buick Motor Division has been used as the foundation stone for the establishment of General Motors in 1908.
Buick is going to try to make a big comeback of Buick Grand National after more than 20 years. That is the period filled with all kinds of speculations on the expanse of Buick Grand National since its debut on NASCAR Winston Cup Grand National Series in 1982.
2016 Buick Grand National is expected to be a high performance car with GNX sport luxury coupe as a support. Both versions are most likely going to be manufactured on the architecture of Alpha vehicles.
In this review we are going to mention some of the speculations and facts about 2016 Buick Grand National’s engine, specs, exterior and interior look and possible release date and prices.
2016 Buick Grand National Interior
There are no real news about this matter but why not speculate? 2016 Buick Grand National is certainly going to meet all the requirements of modern age. You can expect quality materials (as you can see on pictures) for dashboard, leather seats – heated and ventilated, dual zone climate, central display with touch screen control and high tech sound system. Panoramic roof is not their style so we don’t expect it in the base version, maybe for some premium variant. Sound isolation and the comfort inside the Buick engineered vehicles has never been a problem.
2016 Buick Grand National Exterior
The style used in this vehicle is covered with the veil of secrecy since the beginning of any talks. There was not much we could get out of those rumors but on the basis of Alpha vehicles engineering facts, we can say for certain that it’s going to have a sport cab rear style (because of the Alpha platform rear wheel drive). We can expect wider and lower placed vehicle with redesigned Xenon headlights and LED taillights , elegantly shaped grille and dual exhaust system.
The 2016 Buick Grand National silhouette has changed over years, and it doesn’t have that sport line anymore. It will most certainly come in a form of sedan, despite of a fact it is not in their nature.
Engine and Specs
And yet again, even this detail is not yet known. According to some of our sources we can only narrow it to three options.
First version is a 2.0 liter turbocharged four inline LTG engine with 250 horsepower.
Second version is a naturally aspirated 3.6 liter V6 LFX engine with 300 horsepower.
Third version and the version we think it has the biggest chance to be in the final version, is a twin turbo 3.6 liter V6 LF4 with 400 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque.
Transmission is most certainly going to be a six speed automatic very recently developed by Buick. On the basis of a platform it will use, 2016 Buick Grand National is going to have the largest amount of power in its rear, while we can expect the AWD in form of optional offer.
2016 Buick Grand National Release Date and Price
2016 Buick Grand National price hasn’t been announced yet, but when we take in a consideration some of the known prices, 2016 Buick Grand National might come with 35,000 dollars price tag for the base model, on one hand, and the premium and the top model with 60,000 dollars or even higher.
Release date of 2016 Buick Grand National is set for the second quarter of 2016.
