  New for 2011-Buick
Buick introduces an all-new Regal sedanAll other models in the automaker's lineup receive minor updatesHistoryBuick is an American automaker that traces its roots back to 1899. In 1903, founder David Dunbar Buick incorporated his growing shop into the Buick Motor Company. The company released the Model B in 1904. That first car was a vehicle that would carry the automaker through the end of its first decade. By 1915, Buick had changed direction, and successfully moved upscale as a luxury brand. As market demands called for a different type of product near end of the century, the automaker introduced its first sport utility crossover, called the Rendezvous, in 2001. Today's lineup includes the Lacrosse, the all-new European-based Regal, and the 8-passenger Enclave sport utility.
