  • 1987 Buick GNX with 8 miles for sale

    There are low mileage cars, and then there's this 1987 Buick GNX. Listed for sale on auction site Bring a Trailer, the muscle car has only gone eight miles in its 30-plus years of existence. For those who need a crash course on the GNX, it was a limited-run model built in 1987 based on the Buick Grand National, which itself was born from the Buick Regal to celebrate the brand's success in the NASCAR Grand National series. Buick built the Grand National in 1982 and from 1984 to '87, while the GNX was only offered for the 1987 model year. Buick partnered with McLaren Performance...

  • 2019 Buick Regal Avenir

    Buick's Regal Sportback is a fuel-efficient mid-size liftback that exudes quality and style but skips the premium price tag. For the 2019 model year, the car receives Buick's upmarket Avenir trim, helping to further bridge the gap with its luxury brand alternatives. The Regal Sportback, which is actually a rebadged Opel Insignia (the two even share the same plant in Germany), already has an inviting cabin in base trim but the Avenir makeover takes things to a new level. It adds either an ebony or beige interior theme with diamond quilt-stitched front seats, embroidered first-row headrests...

    2018 Buick Regal GS first drive review: six appeal

    The 2018 Buick Regal GS wears lots of letters and words on its flanks and in its cabin. Two you won’t find? “Gran Sport.” That moniker’s a relic of an era when rear-drive Buicks prowled the roads, leaded fuel their Muscle Milk. Today’s Buicks lean heavily on recently...

    2018 Buick Regal Sportback first drive review: the crossover of cars

    The decision to do away with a sedan shape and offer the 2018 Buick Regal as a hatchback (called Sportback) and a wagon (called Tour X) is an odd one at first blush. After all, mid-size sedans traditionally have been among the strongest selling vehicles, while hatchbacks and especially wagons have...

  • The first publicly available Buick GNX heads to auction

    Grand National Experimental. Those three words mean a whole lot to Buick fans. That's because they are the name applied to a car that was once a humble Regal. When it gets the black paint applied, it is transformed into a truly menacing street beast that stalked the roads of America in the late 1980s. Now's your chance to own what's arguably the most important of all the Buick GNX models built. This is the first one made available to the public, and it's heading to auction. Buick built just 547 GNX models. All started as the aforementioned Regal before being upgraded to the more powerful...
