Chicago Sun-Times: Buick brings back the love

4 posts in this topic

Another positive review for the Buick Enclave, this time from the Chicago Sun-Times, titled "Buick brings back the love."

The reviewer makes the statement that Buick and Cadillac are the only GM divisions offering exciting styling. "The rest of GM models (perhaps with the exception of Corvette) will put you to sleep," it is stated.

Apparently they forgot about the Aura, and the new Malibu. It sounds like they need to broaden their horizons.

Rome wasnt rebuilt in a day. GM has made strong moves towards the positive and the future looks bright. It was a good positive article, and I agree that the new Buick Enclave really stands out as a Buick, and Cadillac has a very strong design language throughout the brand, but unlike Buick, the Cadillac design language has been a work in progress for 5 years now, in another 5 years, hopefully the Buick design language will be set and just as distinctive.

I beg to differ....

What at Buick doesn't "put you to sleep?" Pretty much nothing besides the Enclave.

What about Cadillac? IMO, the Escalade line, V-Series and top option CTS are nice. However, the STS and SRX are dated, the DTS is becoming dated and the XLR is past dated. I've seen two new CTS; the first one was a lower level car that was nice but not terribly impressive and the second was a top of the line car that I fell in love with.

Saturn probably has the best design language at GM right now. Saab looks to be getting things in order, if they'll ever roll anything out. The Hummer look is getting staid and needs to be tweaked. GMC has a good amalgamation, but is too conservative for me in everything but the Denali line (for the most part --- Damn I miss "Terra") The Corvette and new Malibu make Chevrolet exciting, but a lot of their stuff is still lackluster. Alas, my last hope is Pontiac, which offers the Solstice as it's single stylish offering.

I'm not being overly negative. I'm merely pointing out that the style renaissance at GM has just begun and still needs to make a lot of progress.
