Zeta Buick called Invicta?

Recommended Posts

Motor Trend is reporting the new RWD Zeta Buick coming out with the Camaro will be called the Invicta.

I love the name....can anybody confirm this?

that was rumoured last year. don't think it was ever confirmed.

personally, i like the name. much better than Roadmaster IMO

I would prefer Statesman or Roadmaster over Invicta. Invicta just doesn't do anything for me. It was a short run nameplate in Buick's past that holds very little emotional sentiment when I hear it. I'm not saying that to offend Invicta fans. It's just me.

I'd prefer a more renowned name like Roadmaster, or a new name like Statesman for Buick's "return to glory" flagship sedan.

The Zeta Buick will probably be called Lucerne, because the Lucerne replacement is probably going on that platform. We already know that there will be no more new cars on the G or W body platforms.

probably depends on how succesful Lucerne is between now and then and whether that name has any cache left or whether it has to be tossed for a new one.

Impala could make the leap from FWD to RWD, I'm not so sure about Lucerne.

You're right. Plus Bob Lutz has a history at all of the automakers he has worked at of renaming cars.

I just hope they don't use the Statesman.

Either Invicta or Electra..

no. last thing GM wants is people thinking of a $h!ty movie when they think of the Buick flagship

I don't know. Statesman or Roadmaster are too "baroque."

Electra or Invicta, both past names, are better and easier for the consuming public to grasp. Actually, because there is no Ebonicized "deuce and a quarter" connection to the Electra, I prefer Invicta. It may not sell in Europe, though...Invicta is to knapsacks what Eastpak and Janssport are over here. Just a thought.

Nothing wrogn with Roadmaster although same can be said for Invicta & Electra. I'll agree with you guys about Statesman though... sounds cheesy like a carrige top edition.

As the single C&G resident who owns an Invicta, allow me to say....... I like the name! ;)

I know I'm way off the Normal Scale, but 'Statesman' is only going to remind me of a Nash; thumbs down.

Has MT ever been correct?

Sure they have... back in 95 & 96 they were pretty acurate with their reportage of the C5. Other times they've made mostly acurate predictions, but like anyone trying to predict the future they've had foot-in-mouth disease on occassion.

This Buick naming busines is getting rather silly! We have the LaCrosse and the Lucerne and now we might have the Invicta! The names are getting dumber and dumber per car!!

No to the Electra (images of a bad movie and 70's) and no the Invicta which means what?
