2017 Buick Avenir – Released at the 2015 Los Angeles Auto Show the concept for the new Buick Avenir was showcased there and showed us just what the future for the Buick brand was shaping to look like. As Buick has not been able to release a full luxury vehicle for a period of time and it only managed to showcase some just slightly luxurious vehicle based on the European ones for now, they are looking to add a standalone project designed exclusively by them. It appears that the answer is near and it is called the 2017 Buick Avenir.
As the concept model was an introduction to this design and we even saw some of the parts being carried over to some of the recently released Buick vehicle, it is becoming more and more apparent that the production vehicle is going to see the light of day soon. The car is going to be built from ground up and it will feature only standalone additions and designs to its look which will be an introduction to the future designs from Buick that are yet to come.
With the 2017 Buick Avenir vehicle the company is hoping to achieve two things. First of all, it will finally come with a car that offers some prime luxury characteristics and be back in the circuit of the luxury car race. Secondly, this design is going to be a base for the future models that are coming out of the Buick manufacturing line and we can expect a lot of vehicle that are going to bare similar characteristics to this one. The process has already started and we can see it continue quite recently. Study this review for all the prime information about the 2017 Buick Avenir vehicle.
2017 Buick Avenir exterior
The exterior design of the 2017 Buick Avenir is going to be built from the ground up. The concept model was actually built by hand which puts the Avenir somewhere close to Bentley and Phantom cars, but we are still not sure if the production model will get the same sort of a treatment. The thing is that the vehicle is going to be completely unique as it adopts its own personal characteristics. It is supposed to be built in Australia and they are going to use aluminum based or glass materials for its production. It is mostly going to include these lightweight materials that are going to make the car a lot faster and easier to make.
The chap plastic materials are going to be out as this is a prime luxury car and it is going to be made from scratch and shatter proof materials as well in order to preserve it better. The headlight design is going to be a somewhat interesting endeavor as it adopts something that has not been seen before. It adds the LED technology to the look and will consist of three jewels within and some wings at the sides. The brand also gets a new angular grille which has already been used for some vehicles that are already out on the market, like the LaCrosse car for instance, and is something that besides the 2017 Buick Avenir will feature, will most likely be added to the majority of the upcoming models from Buick.
On the inside of the 2017 Buick Avenir you may expect a very quality surrounding. It has been devised in a way where comfort meets technology and it is a high end part of the car which will offer the largest amount of comfort. First of all, it comes as a four-seat car and not as a five-seat one unlike the majority of the vehicles from the luxury segment. It uses some leather and suede upholstery and like that has the best type of material in an industry vehicles. Also the finishes around the buttons are very appropriate as it does not only use some soft touch materials but add an aluminum trim as well.
The dashboard has a slim luxury design and is made using a combination of leather and wood veneer with a tad of chrome as well. The dashboard also has a 12 “touchscreen which is a part of the updated infotainment system which provides you with all the help that you need to control every feature and part of the car. Additionally, the front and back part is separated by a central tunnel which makes it more convenient that way. Also the passengers at the back will be able to enjoy the integrated screens matted at the back part of the front seats.
It is not yet confirmed which powertrain is going to be fitted under the hood of the 2017 Buick Avenir, but there are many rumors currently that give us an idea of what we may get to have under the hood. We assume that it is going to be the 3.6 liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine option which in turn will provide 500 hp and 550 lb-ft of torque. If this becomes a hybrid option, it is going to be additionally powered by a pair of electric engines. A 9 speed automatic and a rear wheel drive transmission is suitable for this setup and if that is the case the specs would allow for a 0-60 mph performance of around 6.5 seconds and a top speed of 155 mph.
Price and release date
We cannot really confirm the officially release date for the 2017 Buick Avenir but as the name states, expect it somewhere at the end of next year or in the beginning of 2017. This also makes the information about the price rating scarce as well, but as this is a luxury brand and judging by the amenities it can get a price of 60.000 dollars is an appropriate one. The car is consdired a rarity and people treat it the same as the news about the new 2016 Ford Torino, which is also rumored to be out.
