Buick Avenir Concept Edmonton AB
One of the most exciting things coming out of the General Motors camp so far this year was the unveiling of a brand new concept vehicle, the Buick Avenir Concept in Edmonton AB. The vehicle was originally unveiled at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, having been announced just shortly before the event. They didnt have a press conference, but its presentation at the show did just enough to amp up the excitement surrounding the concept.
Intended to be the flagship sedan of the lineup if it were to receive a production model, the Buick Avenir represents what General Motors sees as the future of the Buick brand. Thats where the cleverness of the name shines through, as Avenir is French for future. A team of GM designers from around the world worked in collaboration to create the Buick Avenir, using certain aspects from current vehicles as well as pulling inspiration from old concept models to create what might be the future design cues found in Buick models.
