Buick and GMC at the 2019 North American International Auto Show

NAIAS | Liberty Lake, WA

The 2019 North American International Auto Show took place in January from the 14th to the 27th in Detroit, where refreshed models, concept vehicles, and innovative new technologies across the entire auto industry were revealed for the first time.

As one of the biggest auto shows in the world, the NAIAS is the place to be for the latest cars, SUVs, and trucks, especially from GM brands like Buick and GMC. Neither Buick nor GMC released a new concept at the Detroit Auto Show, but they did show off the new versions of their popular lineups.

Buick showed off the ultra-luxurious Avenir line, which takes Buick’s premium vehicles and elevates them even further. The Enclave Avenir, Regal Avenir, and Lacrosse Avenir have a vehicle style for everyone while providing the latest features, unbeatable comfort, and smooth, powerful performance.

The GMC lineup was also presented at the Detroit Auto Show, though it’s rumored that GMC plans the debut the 2020 GMC Sierra HD Denali at the Chicago Auto Show in February.

GMC teased the all-new Sierra HD with a video released during the NAIAS, showing styling similar to the Sierra 1500, with the same platform and powertrains as the 2020 Silverado 1500. Sporting the exclusive MultiPro tailgate, the upcoming Sierra Denali HD promises state-of-the-art tech and performance.

Here at George Gee Buick GMC, we can’t wait to learn more about the upcoming lineup of Buick and GMC vehicles.

2019 Buick Regal Avenir Joins Buick’s Top-Tier Luxury Lineup

2019 Buick Regal Avenir

Since the introduction of the Buick Avenir trim level, Buick drivers have been excitedly embracing the new line of luxury models for the truly exceptional experience they offer. Buick drivers now have even more to be enthusiastic about, as the 2019 Buick Regal is getting an Avenir trim level. This is particularly good news for luxury drivers who want to enjoy all the benefits of the Avenir line but who prefer something smaller than the Enclave crossover or the full-size LaCrosse Sedan. The 2019 Regal TourX Wagon will not receive an Avenir trim this year.

 

Some of the most appealing features of the 2019 Regal Avenir include its nine-speed automatic transmission, 19-inch Pearl Nickel wheels, self-leveling and cornering headlamps, premium leather upholsterer, an advanced 8-inch infotainment touchscreen display, and a premium eight-speaker Bose audio system. Apart from these features, we also expect the 2019 Regal Avenir will come with distinctive badging and a three-dimensional mesh grille.

 

Another popular aspect of the Avenir models is the standard feature packages that improve every aspect of the driving experience. The 2019 Regal Avenir will come standard with the Buick Driver Confidence I Package, which includes four-way lumbar adjustment, heated outside mirrors, and an array of driver-assist features like Lane Change Alert, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and Rear Park Assist.
