My goodness, it’s hard to switch gears from the new Ford GT to, well, anything else.
My personal gratification aside, there are many other surprises and exciting cars being shown at the Detroit Auto Show this week.
One of them took me completely off guard and provides a hopeful, and beautiful, look into the future of Buick.
It’s really not fair to continue to label Buick as the brand preferred by Florida retirees. Sure, there are plenty of old Regals and Centurys still parked at the buffets down there, but the new Buick is something else entirely. Instead of stodgy and practical, words like sleek and exciting come to mind. Buick cars routinely turn heads and gather comments like, “That’s a Buick?!?”
In Detroit this week, Buick took the next step into becoming a genuine luxury car brand by unveiling the Avenir concept, a stunning GT sedan with rear-wheel drive and sloping sexy lines.
