Buick History

Did you know that Buick’s roots date back to 1903? The owner of Buick, William C. Durant, started the company in Michigan — a major hub for automotive innovation. Several years later in 1908, he started the GM brand. While GM was meant for broad appeal, Buick was designed as the more upscale and refined option. 

So, is Buick a luxury car brand? Yes, sophisticated models like the Buick Encore, Buick Enclave, and the Buick Envision showcase high-end engineering and style on the Crosby roads to this day. On its 20th anniversary, the brand made its one-millionth vehicle and since then, over 35 million vehicles have been produced.
