File this to vehicles you will never see sold in the United States. In China, however, the Buick GL8 is a big deal, and the brand has pulled the wraps off of the latest iteration of the multi-purpose vehicle.
The new Buick GL8 was revealed with sparse details surrounding powertrains and interior appointments, but the brand did state enhancements are found in nearly every area of the new GL8. That includes powertrains, technology and riding comfort.
Most importantly for the new GL8 is its adoption of Buick’s latest design, something lacking in the previous GL8. The MPV has gone from frumpy to sleek thanks to a dark waterfall grille, angled headlamps and more fluid lines.
The new Buick GL8 has optimized its interior space over the outgoing GL8 with shorter front and rear overhangs, meaning cabbies will have greater room for passengers and luggage.
The new GL8 will launch in China later this year, following delivery of 76,607 GL8 MPVs last year alone.
