Community Question: Should GM Produce The Buick Avenir Concept?15
Buick will apply the design elements seen on the recently unveiled Avenir concept to its future production cars. You may see things like the redesigned grille, tri-color emblem and sweep spear body line on everything from future Buick crossovers and SUVs to entry-level sedans, however we’d like to see the Avenir itself reach production, not just its design cues.
The Avenir isn’t one of those concepts that is solely a showpiece. Its powertrain, made up of a V6 engine and a nine-speed paddle-shift transmission, really works, and the interior is reminiscent of the latest all-new addition to Buick’s portfolio, the Envision crossover. Additionally, the Omega platform it rides on is destined for production in the Cadillac CT6, and thus could easily be used in a Buick application.
Do you think the Avenir should reach production? We think it’s the perfect car to help elevate the brand’s image, and your mom would definitely say, “that’s not a Buick!” upon seeing it. Even if you think Buick should stay away from a full-size flagship, it may be destined for production anyways. When a concept is solely a design study, automakers usually avoid disclosing powertrain details, however GM proudly proclaimed its Avenir is powered by a next-generation V6, and Mark Reuss didn’t hesitate to reveal its Omega underpinnings.
Vote below, and feel free to discuss the future, or potential lack thereof, of the stylish new Avenir in the comments.

Why ask about what is coming?
2017 I would be expecting this the because the CT 6 has to come out first.
The new possible Buick Aenir, From the side view IT IS 7 SERIES BMW/ Tesla model- s, from the rear it looks Bentley, VERY COOL & Amp; with lots of clout. Bring it on European with a twist. I’m interested in one, You have my attention !!! If a V- 6 goes into it, Put the V6 with the torque of a V8, NOT 145 HP ?
Yes. start producing and then ask whether you like. GM should do well to human relations. and human relations globally. I see a lot of anger gm community. Once people are not able to be with the GM will not make sense to expect any kind of cooperation.
Basically, this car has already fought over GM commune to whom it belongs, and to whom it is similar to the US or the EU or AU. And that is a pity. That’s what I’m afraid that GM is difficult to cooperate with the various elements of your personal. Gm is very difficult for the company in this sense, as compared to some other company. Nor any other great companies who’s not put aside so many different brands and this is the second company is VAG VW. VAG is the only European, and there are all united and friendly family and all support each other as GM fought each other, and it’s funny and damage. This is not, unfortunately, but rather in favor of GM. Gm goes inside each other for different brands of war between the owners and not to mention the brand in different countries.
GM is a global fimra belonging to different countries and cultures have different ways of land.
and so have all the time been. and it has also hindered progress. Now we have to see the changes but everything is still very young.
if anyone wants to order these machines would compete with each other. It is important that these machines are still in competition with other machines that are not GM. Gm should all brands such models on the market and bring it to compete with others who have gm.

Dumb to even ask. No brainer, of course this should be produced and as close to the concept as possible. 🙂
You need to correct one part. Change they should to they will.
The interior is where you will see some changes as no 12″ screens etc.
Looking at the exterior, it looks ready for production. The interior looks very concept, but there are some good things going on there.
Without a doubt Buick should build this!!! The brand needs it!
Yes, please build this dream.
As Buick Avenir, as Holden Commodore and OPEL Admiral.
Do it, please!!!!!!
Yes , build it , they will come ,,,,,quoting words from A Field of Dreams . If there is anything that I personally would want an answer to , would be the WHY the rear window is becoming so meaningless in so many new models GM is producing ?? If you don’t want people to actually be able to use it to augment their rear view mirror , or do a shoulder check out the rear when parking , why not eliminate it altogether ?? Is a Fashion Statement more important than all around visibility , well it certainly looks like it ! Mind you who knows better than the designer boys ,and drivers over 6 ft tall….not for shorter drivers or really , anyone who is mainly driving and parking this overly long vehicle in mall lots, parkades or on the street , in cities where most of the driving is done these days . Fashion means so much , except to the buying public who resoundingly made the plain janes of the vehicle world , the Camry and Corolla the most popular vehicles in North America ,,,, odd don’t you think ??
Definitely a striking design, but unlikely to make it to production for anywhere other than China. Why? How many folks are looking for a big Buick “car” and are ready, willing and able to pay $65K+? Can’t be many. Remember,the Envision CUV, which looked to be coming here very soon, still hasn’t been given the green light for NA. I expect we will see several of the styling elements from the Avenir in the next gen Lacrosse and/or Insignia/Regal.
Boils down to cost. If you attach a $50k price tag, it would only make sense with a $35k GTO to back it up.
Move it down to a $39k starting pricetag with a 2.0T, then it makes a lot more sense.
They never build this car the reason ,,cadilac,,,
One very nice Australian designed and built car – well done Holden
