Goodbye to the Verano in the Buick Car Lineup?

Known for many things, the Thunder Bay Buick Cars in the Buick Verano family have been touted as one of the most affordable sedans in the luxury business. There exist many buyers who wish to feel the soft luxury of all the features that carry the title, but cannot or will not fork over the cash required to earn such a creature.  So, when Buick cars introduced the luxury Verano at a very reasonable cost, buyers all over the globe got on board.

Now, however, those of us in the United States and Canada may no longer have this affordable piece of luxury on wheels available at our local Buick Cars Dealer in Thunder Bay as the experts and certain sources online say that the Buick Verano‘s days might very well be numbered.  “According to an Automotive News report, two sources within General Motors say the Verano won’t be renewed for another generation in the U.S. – despite a second-generation model already having gone on-sale in China.”

If you are wondering why this may be the case, as we were when researching on behalf of your Buick Car Dealer in Thunder Bay, we found the best answer to lie in the other segments of vehicles for sale both in Canada and the US and their overall popularity as well.  “SUVs and crossovers have a lot to do with the Verano’s fate – once the Envision goes on-sale this summer, Buick expects 70 per cent of its sales in the U.S. to be made up by crossovers. Plus, Encore sales are red-hot, in a way replacing the Verano’s position as the gateway model into the Buick lineup. In fact, AutoNews says half of the Encore’s U.S. buyers come from other brands.”
