Buick Cars are what we wish to discuss with you here, on behalf of your Thunder Bay Buick Car Sales department. More specifically, we want to talk about the Buick Verano and its potential exit from the new car scene. “The Buick Verano’s days are allegedly numbered. Citing unnamed sources, Automotive News is reporting that Buick will kill its Delta-platform-based sedan.” Buick is offering no comment as to the validity of this claim.
According to Automotive News, Buick is expecting 70 percent of its sales to come from other cars in their lineup at your Thunder Bay Buick Car Dealership in Ontario. The Encore, Enclave and eventual Envision will be left to pick up the slack of the loss in sales as a result of the Verano being gone. Interestingly, the Buick Cars in the Verano lineup are pretty high on the demand list, with sales at a high in Canada and the US. “Struggling sales might be the reason to kill a car, but the Verano is – and has consistently been – Buick’s second best-selling sedan. It’s beaten the slightly larger, more expensive Regal by at least 12,000 units in each of the last four years. Hell, in 2013, Buick sold 45,000 Veranos to fewer than 19,000 Regals. So why not kill the Regal?”
Apparently, experts say, it is more of a timing thing. “Buick launched its smallest sedan at a time when premium compact four-doors weren’t a thing and gas prices were high enough that consumers were still hesitant to tie themselves to a CUV’s fuel bill.” Now, as fuel prices drop and consumers run to crossovers, all bets are off.
