Buick Verano Unveiled - Columbia Will Love It!

This past week at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Buick took the covers off of the all-new 2012 Buick Verano.  The Buick Verano for sale in Columbia SC features a standard 2.4L four-cylinder engine rated at 177 horsepower, about 45 more than the Chevrolet Cruze that rides on the same revised Delta platform.  In the future, the 2.0L turbocharged engine from the Buick Regal Turbo will be offered.  If visions of over 200 horsepower in a small compact sedan strike your fancy, look no further than the new Buick Verano!

Verano will offer Buick's exclusive QuietTuning technologies, which Columbia drivers love for its ability to reduce, deflect, and absorb all manner of road noises to provide a world-class ride.  Even in a compact sedan rated for 31 highway miles per gallon, the Verano will offer a library-quiet ride.  Pricing has not been announced as of yet, but the Verano will arrive in Columbia, SC in the fourth quarter of 2011.

Columbia Loves a Buick, and So Does America!

As the dust settles from the rebound year that was 2010, many manufacturers are releasing their end-of-the-year sales numbers.  With all the major brands reporting, we're thrilled to announce that the fastest-growing brand in the United States of America is Buick!

In 2009, Buick delivered 102,306 vehicles in the United States.  In 2010, following the launch of the all-new Buick LaCrosse in Columbia SC (up a staggering 112 percent in 2010 alone) and the revival of the Buick Regal in Columbia, and on the continued love shown by Columbia drivers to the Buick Enclave crossover SUV, a whopping 155,389 new Buicks found their homes--a boost of over 51 percent!

December saw Buick sales increasing 40 percent year-over-year, the fifteenth consecutive month of retail sales increases.  Many Columbia shoppers are drawn to the exciting new lineup, as about 41 percent of Buick buyers are coming from outside the General Motors family, and 27 percent from import brands.  Needless to say, the demand has kept Columbia Buick dealers busy for the past year, and you know that we look forward to an even stronger 2011 with the arrival of exciting new models like the Buick Regal GS, Buick LaCrosse with eAssist, and the all-new Buick Verano.  Stay tuned as these exciting new models will be arriving soon!
