This is how your next luxury Buick may look. The new flagship sedan is just a concept, but it resembles what GM is on quite well. Buick unveiled their Avenir Concept at 2015 Detroit Auto Show.

Global design team did the outstanding work which was inspired by hostoric Buick concepts like Riviera. It is 204.5 inches [5,195 mm] long and 76 inches [1,931 mm] wide. The power comes from all new directly-injected V6 that features Active Fuel Management, start/stop function and 9 speed automatic transmission and AWD.

“Avenir embodies Buick design, which centers on effortless beauty and presence without pretense,” commented Ed Welburn, vice president of General Motors Global Design. “It demonstrates the growing international reach of Buick and offers an exciting vision of where it can go.”
“The new grille is a modern interpretation of a design introduced on the landmark 1954 Wildcat II concept, which shattered expectations of what a Buick was supposed to be,” said Michael Simcoe, vice president of design, GM International Operations. “On the Avenir, it represents a break from convention and progressiveness in technology.”
