It may be a case of too much, too quick—or it may be aloof what Buick needs to absolutely agitate things up.

In New York, the Buick stand—unfortunately relegated to the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center’s basement—had three new models to appearance off: a redesigned Enclave three-row crossover and two Regals, a Sportback mid-size hatchback, and a Regal TourX crossover-like wagon.

That’s a lot of new metal for a cast that has redesigned or adapted about all of its calendar over the aftermost year. The much-needed Envision mid-size crossover and the redesigned LaCrosse haven’t alike been on auction for a year. The Encore mini-crossover was active aftermost year and the droptop Cascada accustomed beneath than 18 months ago. The alone Buick that hasn’t been nipped, tucked, or absolutely redesigned is the Verano, and it will go out of accumulation shortly. 

Is this bad news? Not necessarily, but it’s an abnormal new artefact cadence. If you haven’t been in a Buick banker in a brace of years, you won’t admit the lineup. But if you pop aback in two years bottomward the road, you’ll recognize everything. That’s article automakers don’t try to do; overextension out new archetypal introductions helps accumulate showrooms busy. Alike if accession comes in to see the latest and greatest, they may go home with a archetypal that has had a best shelf life.

2018 Buick Enclave Avenir, 2017 New York auto show

Band of abnormally adamant misfits

That abnormal action aside, Buick’s calendar charcoal abounding of automotive oddballs that gel calm appreciably well. Let’s appraise the three New York debuts.

The 2018 Enclave is big news—literally and figuratively. Buick’s approachable Enclave charcoal a hit with buyers admitting its age (it has been on auction for a decade with few above changes) and, at over $50,000 with a few options, it brings in adorable aerial incomes to a cast that straddles the band amid boilerplate and luxury.

This latest archetypal ushers in a new Avenir trim akin that’s basically Buick’s adaptation of the badly accepted Denali cast at Buick affinity GMC. For GMC, Denali agency a brace of added appearance with a decidedly college transaction price. Denali has become a cast aural a cast at GMC; it’s a case abstraction in how to add amount and accession accumulation margins with basal investment.

Buick says that added of its models will eventually get the Avenir analysis and the brand’s admiral are no agnosticism absent about a allotment of Denali success.

2018 Buick Regal TourX

The Regals, meanwhile, are absolutely rebadged Opel Insignias, a archetypal congenital by General Motors in and primarily for Europe (at atomic up until now). The Sportback is absolutely an oddity; cipher has approved to advertise a auto in this articulation back the Saab 9000 exited the bazaar in 1998. It replaces a Regal auto that was additionally cribbed from Opel but never absolutely met expectations in the U.S.

The TourX makes sense—it’s a wagon with a lift kit and butch looks, Buick’s booty on the Subaru Outback. Given that Subaru awash abuse abreast as abounding Outbacks (183,000) as Buick did vehicles (230,000) aftermost year, alike a allotment of the Outback pie will be a success for Buick. The TourX enters an more aggressive market; in accession to the Outback, it’ll aboveboard off adjoin the Volvo V60 Cross Country, the Volvo V90 Cross Country, and the Volkswagen Golf Alltrack. 

Yet the abiding affairs for the Regal abide a huge mystery. GM is in the action of affairs Opel’s cast and assets, both concrete and intellectual, to French automaker PSA. What PSA, which builds Citroens and Peugeots, affairs to do with Opel charcoal fuzzy, but one thing’s for sure: the Opel Insignia will anon be French and not accidentally American. It’s acceptable that there’s a article active in the accord apropos how the Regal will accomplish its adventure from Opel’s Russelsheim, Germany, accumulation bulb to dealers broadcast beyond the U.S. already GM easily the keys to Opel over to PSA. 

And no altercation of Buick could be absolute after advertence China, area Buick awash over a actor cartage aftermost year. There, Buick’s angel is categorical by the years of carelessness the cast is alive to abrade off here. Decades of alarmist LeSabres apprenticed by octogenarians larboard a mark actuality that’s still boxy for GM to eradicate.

At this point, GM is throwing spaghetti at a bank with this latest artefact onslaught—but the befalling for this cast hasn’t been bigger in years.
