    This car is going to get even better when GM drops that new 2.5L engine into it.Then some day GM might come up with 2.0L Turbo and we'll all begin to think they're catching up to Ford on their engines. And wouldn't that be something if they have that diesel for the Verano that's on stream to go into the Cruz.

    From the company that brought us the Cadillac Cimarron, the Aztrek, the Korean-made Le Mans, the Holden made GTO, the Volt and a ton of red ink now brings forth that molehill out of a mountain. The entry level luxury car from Buick called the Verano. It's got "...warm leatherette" and looks like a Plymouth Neon.

    @Pat, I'm guessing you won't cross shop this against the Camry, then?

    I applaud Buick for making a modern and relevant car !
    It must have been a struggle with GM's awful management

    Looks sharp. And it's priced right--a lot cheaper than an Acura or Lexus! I'm not much of a Buick fan but I think their last few products have been winners.

    @Rich, the challenge that Buick faces is building a car to attract younger buyers while not alienating their existing client base. The Verano has to be sporty enough to compete with the TSX and IS 250, yet quiet and soft enough to still be a Buick. Missing the mark, even by a little bit, can have a huge potential impact on sales.
