    Here's the car US Buick dealers passed on for the US. They didn't want to sell this and would rather stick with the Lucerne.

    GM is going to go ahead and sell it in China now. The Enclave will follow it soon after.

    the american version would've been shit anyway. if it was as nice as the one in the pics, the price range would be out of their target market.

    It was exactly the same except it had a 6.0L V8 and would have been called the Roadmaster here.

    I find it suprising that GM will sell garbage locally while that see's export duties.

    are you surprised? Honestly I think the only way the big 3 can get out of the slump, is by cleaning house from top to bottom

    the thing about american car design is that they focus on the different aspects of the car rather than more unified/flowing lines. it's because they reuse a lot of the components from other cars and need to make them appear different between models.
