I was hoping somebody would read about the glorious Buick GL8 premium minivan today and mention that the world needs more luxurious family movers, and hey, somebody did! This is the hashtag van life I can get behind.


I’ve been thinking that a luxury minivan segment would be cool for years. And no, the Mercedes R-Class does not count. We’ve seen Lexus’ fancification of the Toyota Alphard, we know Mercedes could make the Metris a lot softer inside, and all of these would probably be more comfortable for passengers than any crossover SUV. They’d probably be more practical for hauling stuff, too.


Glad I’m not the only one who’s into highbrow minivans. Now go have fun this weekend, Jalopnerds.
