All-New Buick Verano Revealed in China

The Buick Verano may no longer reside on the North American market, but it is still an important product for Buick in China. Buick China has revealed an all-new Verano, which is powered by three-cylinder engines.

Buick launched the Verano in China back in June 2015. Since launch, the brand has sold over 650,000 Veranos in China, meaning it is a high-volume product for the brand. This marks the first all-new Verano since launch, which sports an exterior design that is similar to that of the Encore GX and other recent Buick models.

Along with the new design, the Verano is now powered by a pair of turbocharged three-cylinder engines. The base engine will be a 1.0-liter that’s mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, while an optional 1.3-liter will be paired with a CVT automatic transmission.

Buick says the new Verano will be packed with all of the latest technology features, including Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Lane Keep Assist (LKA), pedestrian detection (PD), Following Distance Indicator (FDI), Forward Collision Alert (FCA), Collision Mitigation Braking (CMB) and Automatic Park Assist (APA).

It likely goes without saying that Buick has no plans to revive the Verano nameplate in North America, meaning this will remain a China-exclusive model. The new Verano is part of a broader plan for Buick to launch 20 new or redesigned models in China between 2019 and 2023.

    I understand sedans aren’t sell as much like suv/cross overs, but GM should not abandon the sedan segment . This Buick would be good sell.
