futureBuick cars are a thing of the past, right?  Wrong!  An all-new Buick Regal will debut at Manhattan’s Javits Center, home of the New York Auto Show and according to research we have been doing on behalf of your Buick Car Dealer in Thunder Bay, the ones who follow these auto shows with diligence, already have had a preview of Buick Cars to come.  “However, dedicated show-followers have already had a preview, when Opel unveiled its new Insignia sedan and wagon last month in Geneva.”  We set out to find what Opel has to do with Buick, on behalf of your Thunder Bay Buick Car Sales and Service in ON.

According to our research, the following is true, “It’s no secret that the German company has long been a European engineering resource for General Motors, a history that dates to GM’s acquisition of Opel in 1929.”  However, that history is sort of spacing out and winding down, with more time separating the reality of it all.   Geneva served as a showplace for the Insignia, and also as the forum for GM’s announcement that the much anticipated sale of its German subsidiary along with its U.K. Vauxhall brand, was confirmed, and that the new owner is PSA.

With that in mind, your Buick Car Dealer in Thunder Bay, along with others industry-wide, began to wonder about GM’s plan to adapt the Insignia for U.S. duty as the Buick Regal. Would it be business as usual with Russelsheim, where Opel assembles the Insignia? And would the Opel Cascada convertible continue to be a Buick?  These are all questions that many have posed both in articles and forums online in the Buick Car world.  The answer for the time being and into the near future is, yes.
