2018 Buick Riviera

Tuesday, November 29th 2016. | Buick

Buick had to discontinue the Riviera in 1999 where at that time the car didn’t meet their expectation. It didn’t sell as good as what they hoped although its arrival was always a two-door car with luxurious design with nice price to attract buyers. After about two decades, it seems that they have a plan to send it back as 2018 Buick Riviera. It will be more interesting two-door coupe that is a bit different from the original model. The concept has been showcased for the first time in China few years ago. In the name of luxury car market, its concept is different with a new look as a four-door sedan.

Exterior

Few years ago, Buick got a big issue that they didn’t have any suitable platform to support its look and now it seems that they will use the same Alpha platform as the new Cadillac CT6. As far as we know, the Cadillac is designed for US market but, for this new 2018 Riviera, it will cover the demand in China and few other markets such as Australia and Europe. On those markets, Buick has great dominance. The previous model was launched in 2013 and we can learn some things to know more about the future model. We believe that the new look will be similar to the concept. It will get the coupe-like shape design.

Interior

We can say that it has stunning cabin. It has various fine materials to support the luxury touch such as skin of animal, metal joints and ebony. Some additional technology features might be added to give you ultimate comfort and protection. 2018 Buick Riviera is possible to receive Wi-Fi, high-speed 4G LTE and others.

Engine

2018 Buick Riviera should be competitive just like all European super sedans. Therefore, an interesting engine is needed. It is possible to use turbocharged inline-four and 2.0 liter to create even more than 250 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque power. There is also 3.0 liter twin-turbocharged engine V6 that is used by the higher range to provide even about 400 hp. Likely, they will use both rear and all-wheel drive with the presence of new 10-speed auto gearbox to make it as the fastest on its markets. It is also speculated to go with all new 4.8 liter twin-turbocharged V8 that can create 500 hp to make it as the true super-sedan.

Release Date and Price

2018 Buick Riviera with the new platform, we think that the cost can be about more than $50,000.
