First Drive: 2012 Buick Regal GS
On paper, Buick seems to have applied the rice-rocket treatment to its popular Regal to create this new GS model. It's taken a tiny, 2.0-liter four-cylinder and turbocharged and intercooled the bejeebers out of it to produce 270 horsepower and an even hairier 295 lb-ft of twist; bolted on paving-stone-sized front brake rotors (14.0 inches in diameter, 1.2 inches thick) clamped by impressive-looking Brembo four-piston calipers; starched up the suspension with stiffer springs, anti-roll bars, and (adjustable) Sachs shocks; and dolled up the exterior with more aggressive fascias, rocker panel extensions, and a spoiler. That looks like a recipe for a raucous, rambunctious, torque-steering screaming...

First Test: 2011 Buick Enclave CXL AWD
First introduced in the 2008 model year, the Buick Enclave eight-passenger quasi-luxury crossover has most of the bases covered, but there haven't been any significant updates to the model since it first arrived in showrooms. Back then, we said the Enclave re-justified the brand's existence. Thing is, we also said the big crossover still needed work.

So the discerning public has responded . . . by sending sales through the roof? Thanks in part to a lack of competitors in the seven- to eight-passenger large luxury crossover class -- priced in the low $40,000 range - the Enclave has excelled in the market. The SUV was Buick's top-selling vehicle in 2009 and the second-best seller in 2008 and...

Verdict: 2010 Buick LaCrosse CXS
Buick must have been tired of watching Lexus build its reputation on cars that dominate the comfortable luxury sedan segment the American brand once ruled. The ES sedan was Lexus' top-selling vehicle for seven of the first 10 years the brand existed. After more than 20,000 miles with a 2010 LaCrosse, it's clear to us that Buick has crafted a car capable of challenging the popular ES 350.

As a bonus, the LaCrosse looks damn good-and not just for a Buick.

"Stop the presses!" said senior editor Jonny Lieberman. "We parked [the LaCrosse] at a lot on the corner of Hollywood and Vine, catty-corner from the Capital Records building. As I handed the car over to the valet-a guy who, night after night,...

Long Term Update 6: 2010 Buick LaCrosse CXS
He was happy with his choice. "Six hours of freeway cruising will make anyone appreciate a soft, smooth ride and a quiet interior. The seats offer virtually no lateral support, but I found them comfortable for kicking back with the cruise control on. The steering is not performance-oriented, but being light and quick made it incredibly easy to drive in parking lots and on the interstate. My brother, his girlfriend, and his roommate were bewildered by the amount of space inside the car and, despite initial reservations, came to appreciate the Buick as a long hauler."

Scott also echoed the opinions of others that there is room for improvement. "The huge rear doors make it hard to exit in tight...

First Drive: 2012 Buick LaCrosse with eAssist
The name eAssist sounds like a good moniker for one of those "I've fallen and I can't get up" emergency pendants that are popular with Buick's loyal repeat-customer base, but it's actually intended to attract heartier buyers concerned about the long-range forecast for fuel prices. The "e" is for the electricity used to help a 2.4-liter engine accelerate a 3850-pound luxury sedan at a pace folks might be willing to pay $29,500 for.

Think of it as the wildest mild hybrid on the road. Like the mild hybrid system in the 2009 Chevy Malibu, it employs belt/alternator/starter (BAS) technology and a small battery pack to recover and store some of the energy lost when braking or coasting, then give...

Long Term Update 5: 2010 Buick LaCrosse
At a club in Los Angeles with his wife, senior editor Jonny Lieberman had a shocking experience. "We parked at a lot on the corner of Hollywood and Vine, catty-corner from the Capital Records building. As I handed the car over to the valet -- a guy who, night after night, week after week, parks Benzes and Porsches and Astons and Italian cars -- says to me, 'Nice car.' And he meant it.

This guy thought the Buick LaCrosse is a car worth mentioning. Then, while we were leaving the club, the valet pulled the LaCrosse up and a very smartly dressed woman saw it and said, 'Whoa -- beautiful.' Buick has come a long way from being bland and forgettable." Senior editor Matt Stone logs: "Nice freeway...

First Drive: 2011 GMC Acadia Denali
"Denali" is actually an Athabascan (Eskimo) word for "the High One," and the original name of Mt. McKinley, the tallest mountain in North America. It's also the "tallest" price point for GMC models like the 2011 GMC Acadia Denali.

Never mind that Mt. McKinley is in Alaska, and "Acadia" was the French name for what is now New England and Canada's Maritime Provinces. Denali means "trim package" now, and an expensive one at that. Such is the case of the new 2011 GMC Acadia Denali that recently rolled into Motor Trend HQ with a $50,125 price tag, a pricey sum considering the Acadia starts at $32,615, and there were still options boxes left unchecked. Sure, ours was good and optioned-up, but the...

First Test: 2011 Chrysler 300 Limited
Go ahead. Swoon over the deep burble and ample torque emanating from the 300C's big V-8. We can wait. When you're done, reality is waiting with the V-6-powered 300. Don't fret. While the base car may lack the degree of silliness that comes with a 363-horsepower family sedan, it makes up with a commonly overlooked but crucial element: value.

First, what you lose, along with the "C" moniker: Jettisoning the V-8 drops 246 pounds from the curb weight and $11,000 from the window sticker. Indeed, engine output suffers, but only by 71 horsepower. Acceleration remains respectable; reaching 60 mph in 7.2 seconds means the portly 300 will show its taillights to V-6 Dodge Chargers and turbo Buick Regals.

First Look: 2012 Buick Verano
Will Buick repeat its Enclave magic with the Verano? The Enclave shares its platform with the Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia. It also shares Buick-GMC dealership floors with the Acadia Denali, a premium crossover that comes with similar sticker prices. Yet GM says there's virtually no cross-shopping between the Enclave and Acadia Denali. Different customers, the company says, so Enclave sales continue to increase, four years into the product cycle.

The Cruze was supposed to be a new-age Chevrolet compact, with premium attributes at a Chevy price. Well-equipped models have pretty nice interiors and a long roster of features. Where is there room for a Buick version? North American market Chevy...

First Test: 2011 Nissan Quest
Six short years ago, the minivan segment was thriving. Sales were a million strong and nameplates were as diverse as the sweet selections in a box of See's chocolates. From Japan (Honda Odyssey, Mazda MPV, Nissan Quest, Toyota Sienna) and Korea (Kia Sedona) to the good ol' US of A (Buick Terraza, Chevy Uplander, Chrysler Town & Country, Dodge Caravan, Ford Freestar, Mercury Monterey, Pontiac Montana, Oldsmobile Silhouette, Saturn Relay), the minivan menu offered savory -- and, let's face it, some unsavory -- choices for every mom and dad.

And then something happened. A seed called the three-row crossover was planted, and it sprouted like bamboo on a Miracle-Gro drip. Suddenly, automakers were...
