Anybody see what I see?

15 posts in this topic

On Buick's own website, buick.com, there is a small section, "Choose Your Buick," which shows a Buick Lucerne seemingly in motion. The grille looks to me more upright than what we've see before. Does anybody see what I see?

I see what you mean, but I just feel like it's a weird angle or something. When are they going to update the site for 2006? :huh:

Thanks, Paulie. It looks different, especially compared to that small thumbnail image of the Lucerne in the row of Buick models. The Buick insignia seems more upright. They're in a tough spot with the website - the LeSabre is supposedly sold out, so it could be dropped from the site. Yet the Lucerne evidently won't be ready for several more months. Maybe they keep the LeSabre on the website for name recognition (even though they were dumb enough to drop it) - nothing else going on, anyway.

This is all confusing--because it just seems odd that the brand is going to have 4 mediocre vehicles at best and one decent one.

You're correct, the insignia does seem more upright--at a quick glance I had thought it was larger, but upright seems to be more accurate.

Methinks they'll pull a Buick Invicta (Roadmaster) out of Australia quicker than they're admitting. Here's where I'm confused: some spokesperson for Buick (a woman) recently said something to the effect that when customers come to a Buick salesroom this fall, they'll see somerthing very different. That could mean many things, perhaps simply that they're more and more channeled with Pontiac and GMC - otherwise I can't imagine what she's talking about.

I'm wondering if Buick's dealers will have a much more upscale feel to them--maybe redone? It'd be nice if they had a Roadmaster laying around that would be part of the 07 lineup ;)

It does look different in that picture. When I saw it in person, it looked a lot different from the pictures I'd seen. Maybe they are revising the design for final production. I wish they would post the prices.

Paulie, maybe I've got a laptop in the bathroom. :P No, I don't. I'd joke that my kidneys are stronger, except I've had kidney stones 5x and kidney cancer 1x.

Wow... well, it's nice to know you've kicked cancer's ass... it seems to get everyone I know... and it's in my family so I'm afraid of what might be one day for me.

As for the laptop in the bathroom--mine's wireless, so I could potentially take it in there, but some places are just sacred LOL
