Despite the thinking of some people that Buick brand is a brand that often absent from the auto world – the thinking seems to be wrong with the prospective 2017 Buick Grand National GNX series. Estimation price for this car will begin around $35,000 and going up to the $60,000 series. Among of any Buick production, this vehicle is the most loveable and that make a great opportunity for this brand to reveal the 2017 series. Unlike the bad rumors that loudly spread out for the platform type of this car – the new platform apparently will be using the Alpha Platform with rear wheel drivetrain. Consideration for the release date of this car remains unknown due to the one-year gap with the current year we have now.
It seems like the Buick project team for the 2017 variant very careful on the details component where there is going to be the plenty usage of the carbon fiber and aluminum combination for the entire body. Some highlight for the interior section such as there is going to be new features and they are electric seating for the front row with heating and ventilation capability, and many more. The comfort side should not be any issue because there will be the dual-zone climate control features. Meanwhile, if this brand plans to expedite the launching date, then the first rival that Buick will face is the 2016 Pontiac Firebird series. Maybe both car has different class but in auto world – everything can be very competitive. The main differences with the past of the Pontiac breed appear on the LED headlights, front grille design, and the front fascia shape design. In the interior section, the seating will have the 60/40 split system that provide uncompromising of comfort.
Well, seeing all the details above make us wondering will the Pontiac become the rival of the 2017 Buick Grand National GNX series. Likewise of this future series transform on the engine option that there will be two different engine power. The two engines are 2.0 liters with 272 horsepower capability and the 3.6 liters of the V6 engine that deliver 321 horsepower. However, some speculative estimator thinks that the 3.6 liters engine can push the engine to produce 400 horsepower.
