Buick and Younger Buyers: This Once Geriatric Brand Proves It’s Not Your Grandpa’s Car Anymore! – Lexington, KY

If someone told you they just purchased a new Buick, you’d probably have an opinion about it. Usually, it’s one that equates the Buick with a car designed for an older person. As in, your grandpa. Buick gets it, they do, and they’re ready to prove everyone wrong! When the good people at Glenn Buick GMC told me that not one, but all FIVE models in their 2015 line had a new, fresh, and decidedly non-geriatric look, I had to see for myself.  I’m fairly picky when it comes to cars, but I’ll admit to being more than a little impressed with the changes Buick’s unveiled. Let’s take a look at why Buick and younger buyers are, at last, acquainting themselves:

2015 Buick Encore

The biggest upgrade is the addition of a 4G WiFi hotspot.  On demand connectivity wherever you are? Yes, please! There are also Rainsense wipers that activate on their own when it starts raining, and ten airbags to protect you in case of a collision.

2015 Buick LaCrosse

With 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score for safety, the 4G WiFi hotspot, and up to 36 MPG, the 2015 Buick LaCrosse is definitely NOT your grandpa’s sedan. If you need more convincing, the Side Blind Zone alert uses radar to detect vehicles in your blind spots.

2015 Buick Regal

Ranked a top 10 pick by Consumer Reports, the 2015 Regal lets you switch between three driving modes with something they call Interactive Drive Control. It’s not a hoverboard, but it’s pretty close to the Jetsons!

2015 Buick Enclave

The Buick Enclave certainly is the perfect place to take a break after that long hike, long meeting, or heck, running away from those darn paparazzi. When you sit inside, it’s roomy, comfortable and luxurious with its leather-appointed seating. It also features the industry’s first front center air bag. How’s that for safety?!

2015 Buick Verano

This luxury compact sedan is my favorite of the bunch. Buick summed it up perfectly:

“…optional leather-appointed seats surround you in comfort. QuietTuning cabin technology creates a remarkably serene interior. And purposeful storage throughout doubles as further assurance the Verano was made just for you.”

It really does feel like the quietest, most comfortable ride I’ve had in a sedan in a long, long time!


As you can tell, these Buick cars have everything a young professional, couple, or heck, just about anyone, could ask for in a new car! Stop by At Glenn Buick GMC today and see what you think about all the changes!
