Maybe Skylark? I think it's been long enough that a younger generation won't associate that w/ the piece of crap from the 1990s....

If Mach 1 can be a future crossover...

Besides, the Riviera has been dead long enough to have very little legacy.

I'd have used Skylark instead of Encore in a heartbeat.

So obviously that would be an EV crossover genius move.

TBH Buick may yet expire in the states but its hot stuff out in Asia.

And that new Regal Sportback seems to look good for a romp.

In the USA, killing Buick and letting Cadillac take over the upper end of Buick and Chevrolet the lower end would make loads of sense.

Here, GM should be a three brand company with Chevrolet, Corvette (Porsche), and Cadillac (Lexus, BMW, MB).

More importantly GM has major problems with styling being compelling. Branding is terrible. Cadillac--the legacy American luxury premium brand--has no legacy names. Buick has "E"-named crossovers just like Ford. I have to wonder if bringing out new styling using legacy names would be a better strategy.

Since we are playing computer chair executive here.... Chevrolet should retain only the corvette and allow buick to have all of the passenger cars and only a few SUVS. Lets face the fact that below Caddilac, Buick has the best styling in the rest of the GM family.
