Upcoming Cars in 2012 buick verano With Latest Reviews and Prices
We're tempted to go ahead and call the 2012 Buick Verano a "baby Regal," because the truth is, the two cars are much more alike than you might think. Since the Verano is based off of the Delta II platform (which is relatively large for what General Motors calls a "compact sedan") that also underpins the Chevrolet Cruze, the new Buick's dimensions are awfully close to that of the larger, Epsilon II-based Regal.
GM has released the first 2012 Buick Verano teaser image which show the right front corner of the new model. The Buick Verano teaser photos offers a glimpse of the new model's headlights, fog lights and front grille. General Motors has announced that the new Buick Verano will be built at the Orion Assembly plant in Southeastern Michigan. The Buick Verano will not be the only model built at the fore mentioned plant. GM also plans to build its future small car there. The Buick Verano and the company's new small car represent and investment of $600 million.
Official pricing will surely be announced closer to the car's on-sale date near the end of 2011. If early reports are to be believed, however, expect the Verano to be priced around $21,000 for base models, going as high as $26,000 for cars with all of the trimmings. We'll have more information live from the Detroit Auto Show next week, but in the meantime, check out our high-res gallery and official press release after the break.
What's important to note, however, is that while the Verano is Cruze-based, it uses different materials throughout the interior and has a totally different look. GM is convinced there's a market for an entry-level Buick sedan, and the automaker will be showing off its latest creation at the 2011 Detroit Auto Show next week.
