GM Canada has added two new models to its 2008 Buick product line: The Allure Super and Lucerne Super.
“Lucerne and Allure Super models epitomize Buick’s new level of refinement that is drawing new customers to Buick,” said Marc Comeau, vice president of sales, service and marketing for GM of Canada. “Additionally, the Buick Allure is built right here in Oshawa (Ont.) at our quality award winning car assembly plant.”
Allure Super includes such design elements as a new waterfall grille, a new hood and a new front fascia that incorporates a lower grille opening with chrome trim and chrome fog lamp bezels. It also includes new portholes — four per side — rocker moldings, rear fascia with integrated park assist sensors, 3.5-inch-diameter dual chrome exhaust tips, rear decklid spoiler and a Super badge.
Under the Allure Super’s hood lies a robust 5.3-litre V8 rated at 300 horsepower, helping it go from 0-100 km/h in 5.9 seconds. The engine uses GM’s Active Fuel Management (AFM), an engine technology that seamlessly switches between four- and eight-cylinder power to save fuel.
Lucerne Super is powered by the 4.6-litre Northstar V8 that delivers 292 hp. Further augmenting its driving character, the Lucerne Super also features improved steering, revised suspension elements, and 18-inch aluminum wheels shod with 245/50R18 all-season radials.
External enhancements include a new grille and front fascia, new rocker panels, new rear fascia, new exhaust tips and a Super badge on the decklid.
