2006 Buick Ratings, Reviews and Awards

Buick continues its dramatic reshaping of the company and its major designs to keep up with changing luxury car trends. Many of its flagship models left the lineup this year, leaving Buick space to bring in new life to the brand. 2006 said goodbye to the Century and the Regal, replacing them with the new entry-level Lacrosse. The midrange Park Avenue and LeSabre disappeared to make way for the all-new Lucerne. Using the Cadillac DTS platform, the Lucerne is one of the first vehicles equipped with a heated windshield washer system, and it drivers have the option a more powerful 275 horsepower V8 engine. It has an optional front bench seat for space for up to six people. The LaCrosse saw little change in aesthetics but got a huge safety boost by adding antilock brakes and side curtain airbags for all models. The Rendezvous carried over much of the previous year model design with the addition of a more powerful engine in the base model while the Ranier now runs with Buick’s fuel-saving Displacement on Demand engine design.
