Next generation Buick MPV spotted out will launch before end of year


The next generation of Buick GL8 was recently sighted without camo in downtown Shanghai and shows that the GL8 is very close to production. The GL8 was introduced into China in 2001 and quickly became the industry standard for business use MPV’s within China. As it was popular from the start it only gained two major updates in its life time, although it is rumored that the new generation will launch before the years end.

The new GL8 has borrowed heavily from the Lacrosse and Excelle GT design styling in its front end and rear end, which as per usual have the rear lights dripping with chrome. Engines for the GL8 are expected to be a 3.0L V6 that is taken from the Lacrosse and also the 2.4 four cylinder engine. The 3.0L V6 will be quite the power house with 258bhp on tap thanks to its SIDI engine, also it is rumored that the GL8 will become a mild hybrid thanks to stop and start technology.

The GL8 will have some stiff competition in 2011 from Mercedes who are producing the Viano and Vito in Fujian, and also from FAW-Mazda who are planning to launch the Mazda8 MPV around the same time.
