Buick is going to base their exterior design on the current model of the Buick Regal car. The Buick Grand National is going to be a fabulous look and what better one to choose then to borrow it from the Regal vehicle. The car has been redesigned for the upcoming model year so the car will be released with some modern and updated characteristics. So the car is going to have a menacing new look which is enhanced thanks to the front fascia. The arching roofline and the rounded features of the car will be carried over completely from the Regal as it is something that will catch the eye of the audiences the most.

The sporty lines are a must for this car and it is going to be a nice blend of sportiness and luxury at the same time. The sporty features are going to be enhanced with some additional chrome added and also a GN plate. There is also an announcement that says that the Grand National comes with an all-black exterior color which will perhaps be the only style color that is going to be released, adding to the mystery and enhancing the menacing look of the car in a much greater way.

The base of the inside is going to follow the current Regal styling as well, but the car is going to have many new additions and features that will make the 2016 Buick Grand National have a stand-alone look for itself. The combination of luxury and sportiness continues on the inside as well and begins with the inclusion of some sporty seats upfront. There is also going to be some carbon fiber parts that are going to be added on the inside and they really going to go well with the piano-black and wood grain accents that the car is going to have and which will enhance its luxury side more. A car like this one will certainly have some upgraded technical abilities and it will be equipped with the finest offer of gadgets that can be found.

We are not sure if navigation is going to be provided but it may be offered as an optional choice. Some assumptions of the inclusions on the inside include a 8-inch LCD touch screen, as this is something that is included across the whole lineup of Buick vehicles, and a choice between the Premium 7-speaker sound system or Bose 9-speaker surround sound system. To keep up with the safety standards, there are some new equipment that will help bolster the safety for the vehicle. So added equipment should include  front and rear parking sensors,  a rearview camera, blind-spot monitors, adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning system and a forward-collision warning systems.

You can choose among the turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder that makes 272 horsepower or  3.6L V6 engine with the ability to produce 321 horsepower. The manual shifter is going to be available for the vehicle this year as well but the greatest news about this is the newly announced 8-speed Hydra-Matics which is going to be used for the first time inside a Buick car. The announced fuel economy ratings are set to be somewhere around 20/31 mpg or 21/30 mpg.
