Buick and GMC have recently announced their plans to unveil nine new models, out of which six will be completely redesigned, over the next 12 months.
According to the North American based automaker General Motors, Buick and GMC, two of its brands, will unveil the new version of the Buick Regal, the new Buick LaCross, the new GMC Yukon, the new GMC Sierra HD, the new GMC Sierra and the GMC Yukon XL over the next 12 month, and this is part of a larger plan which includes nine new models, along with the new Buick Encore, the new GMC Acadia and the Buick Verano.
“While we continue to make strong progress in fuel economy gains on our full-size trucks, we know that there is a group of customers who want the functionality of a truck but may not need full-size pickup. We believe that introducing a new, agile and efficient mid-size Canyon will meet the needs of many pickup buyers”, said the Buick and GMC Marketing vice president, Tony DiSalle.
The Regal and LaCross will get facelifted versions from Buick and while no details are known about the latter, the Regal will get the same styling tweaks as the 2013 Opel / Vauxhall Insignia. Besides these, GMC will redesign the Sierra and Sierra HD, along with the Yukon and Yukon XL. GMC will also introduce a new Canyon pickup truck which will be based on the Chevy Colorado. The model will be produced in Wentzville, Missouri. Additional details on these models are limited for the moment.
