This things looks huge (from the side profile). Interior looks top notch despite the probable low grade materials (hard plastics from the looks of it). Why isn't this vehicle offered here? This looks much more upscale than anything Buick has to offer here.

:blink:

Where are these hard-looking plastics and low-grade materials you speak of?

It is amazing that Buick China took the Holden Caprice and dressed it up that much. The interior looks very rich. It does not look stripped or anything. They would hardly need to change much to make it an American Buick. The sad thing is.. I knew GM was going to do this.. They are torturing people like VenSeattle with something he cannot have. It is like dangling a bottle in front of a baby when you know he wants it.

I do not understand why GM North America feels Buick does not deserve cars like this.. The LaCrosse and Lucerne's look stripped and more like Chevrolet Impalas compared to their Chinese counter parts. Why is it always GM everywhere else around the world gets it, and North American GM does not.

Are they afraid a car like this would hurt Cadillac sales?

The SLS looks better than the update we are getting..

I thought GM said they were going to become global in their approach.

That is a car that is "worthy" of the Park Avenue name.

All I can say is wow.. At least they are not holding up some Oldsmobile over my head I would want I could not have....

This is SO sad... that car is absolutely beautiful.

There is NO reason why we can't have that here.

And look, there was no problem making radio and HVAC units look nice in a center console.

Interesting... it appears the footwells are illuminated with white LEDs. Nice.

I have a general question that I'll just throw here because it appears this vehicle doesn't have them... cornering lamps. I know they're available on the CXL and CXS Lucerne, not available with the LaCrosse nor Enclave. The Enclave does however have articulating headlamps. Am I to assume this is the new replacement for cornering lamps? I loved them on cars.

I will say it again, it has to do with the enormous price difference between a US Lucerne and a Chinese Park Avenue. The 3.6 L costs $US50,250 after all.

Wow, that is a stunning Buick..and that interior is gorgeous. This is better than anything Buick NA has...bring it over here just like this..name and all!

Check out the fully integrated center stack!

$US50,250–$US64,468 price tag for the 3.6 L and all? That price tag buys a lot of the goodies you see here.
