Proof Is In The Pictures! AutoWeek's Phil Floraday Breaks Embargo On…

At car industry events, Phil Floraday normally can be found arm-in-arm with his fellow AutoWeek mag o' war man, Bob Gritzinger. Somehow we're unsure if we'll be seeing either of them invited to another event of the General's. If you'll remember, Gritzinger was the motor-man who broke open the seal on the new-for-2007… » 4/24/07 12:15pm 4/24/07 12:15pm

Pricing! Buick Enclave Breaks Out Of The Woods, Starts At $32,790

Lost amid important things like t-shirt slogans and a certain car exec's hairdo, we kind of missed the completion of the General's Lambda-platform trilogy. Rick Wagoner's blue-haired Buick brand has now allowed pricing on the Outlook Acadia Enclave to run free out of the Woods. The CX, the base-level… » 1/20/07 5:18pm 1/20/07 5:18pm

Iron Chef, Detroit Auto Show Edition: Battle of the Cutaway Displays

Use to be, carmakers would run an early prototype through the largest bandsaw they could find, file down the sharp edges and call it a cutaway. But like anything else, competition for consumers' eyes has forced display creators to be ever more clever, escalating the state of the art. I'm not afraid to say the trend… » 1/15/07 10:30am 1/15/07 10:30am

Broken: Buick Just Sold More Cars in China than in the United States of…

The old man used to go on and on about the glory of Grandpa Loverman's 1953 Buick Roadmaster. It was beautifully styled, possessed a powerful straight-eight, had advanced features like... wait for it... power door-locks! Best of all, it was called the frickin' Roadmaster! Car names don't get better than that. Neither,… » 12/20/06 5:45pm 12/20/06 5:45pm

Breaking? GM Has Enough Problems, Will Not Save Ford...Did We Mention…

A non-Jalopnik member of the press asked Rabid Rick if instead of merging with Carlos "Hot Daughter" Ghosn's lineup, why doesn't GM simply merge with — and save — FoMoCo? Mr. Wagoner literally answered, "We have enough problems. We will not be saving Ford." The General does sound like it's intent on saving Buick.… » 11/29/06 8:30am 11/29/06 8:30am

LA Auto Show Preview: Tiger Woods...Err...The Buick Enclave Is Finally…

Not Out Of The Woods: Buick Continues The Lame-Ass Viral Marketing

Thank the lord of motor parts that we've got tipsters like Galvin Wong, a name at an empty and hastily created hotmail e-mail account. Without him, and folks like him, we'd have no way of getting amazing pictures of the tip of the headlight of the new Buick Enclave. That's right, despite finally getting "outed" by the… » 11/13/06 8:31am 11/13/06 8:31am

GM And Tiger Woods Engage In Viral Marketing Of The Lame-Ass Kind

The General's engaged in some lame viral marketing in the past — like when they tried to pretend cars and trucks were flying because of some silly warranty or something. Everyone knows that the cars were flying because of the secret alien-derived technology they and the feds have jointly developed out in the… » 11/09/06 9:50pm 11/09/06 9:50pm

That's A Saturn? 2007 Outlook To Start At $27,990, AWD Pricing In At…

Well, number two in the threesome of Lambda-platform CUV's — the General's answer to the Ford Edge / Lincoln MKX — has finally finished getting its makeup ready and is ready for the public. The Saturn Outlook joins its non-identical twin brother, the Acadia, in the ranks of "vehicles with price tags." Yes, we know —… » 10/26/06 2:22pm 10/26/06 2:22pm

Caption Contest: Tiger Woods And Buick Enclave, So Captioned Together


Although every entry fought hard for the chance to be Jalopnik's next top caption (soon to be a new Fox reality show), unfortunately, as in Highlander, there can be only one — at least until the sequel. It's therefore now our solemn duty to inform the world, and Buick PR man Dave Darovitz, that he should have used… » 9/20/06 11:08am 9/20/06 11:08am

Jalopnik Caption Contest: Buick's Got An Enclave In The Woods For…


Yesterday we asked you to help Buick PR man Dave Darovitz come up with a better caption for the above photo of everyone's favorite "calibanasian" (look it up) and Buick's newest CUV, which y'all seemed to think is trying to be "calibanasian." Although we think you're all winners in our book, we recognize there's a… » 9/19/06 10:45am 9/19/06 10:45am
