Buick's U.S. portfolio will remain mostly gasoline-powered through 2025, even as General Motors transitions to electric vehicles. The brand will ride on the strength of its crossovers after dropping its last sedan at the end of the 2020 model year.
"Their success in the crossover area keeps them a strong player as long as people buy internal-combustion vehicles, and [those are] going to be around for a while," said Sam Fiorani, vice president of global vehicle forecasting at AutoForecast Solutions.
The next update to Buick's roster will be this year's freshening of the Enclave, which was delayed by the coronavirus pandemic. More portfolio changes are expected in 2023, when Buick will shift volume away from its smallest crossover, the Encore, to the slightly larger Encore GX.
