Whether you’re already behind the wheel of a luxury Buick vehicle or you’re still in the research process finding the model that’s perfect for you, at some point you’ve probably wondered, who owns Buick? Buick is owned by General Motors (GM), who also owns GMC, Cadillac, and Chevrolet. Buick is something of a legendary automaker, with a storied history that dates back over 100 years. Explore the history of Buick, where Buick vehicles are made, and more with Dale Earnhardt Jr Buick GMC, your premier Buick dealership serving drivers from Thomasville, GA to Valdosta, GA.

Buick History

You simply can’t discuss the history of Buick without mentioning the early days of GM. Buick began producing vehicles in 1903 during a time of great automotive innovation. In that same year, Buick incorporated and moved from Detroit to Flint, Michigan, where it manufactured the Buick Model B, its first vehicle. 20 years later, Buick made its one-millionth vehicle just in time for its 20th anniversary.

During this short time span, William C. Durant, the owner of Buick, managed to make the company the best-selling automobile brand in the United States. Along the way, he also founded GM in 1908. GM was born out of a desire to acquire other brands that would appeal to all economic groups in the United States, with Buick being a high-end brand. So, the answer to “Is Buick a luxury brand?” is yes.

Over the years, Buick continued to deliver luxury vehicles that were met with praise from American drivers, including the Buick Super, Buick Roadmaster, Buick Special, Buick Riviera, Buick LeSabre, and the Buick Regal – a model that is still in production today!

Where Are Buick Cars Made?

As an American automaker, some drivers are surprised to know that the locations of Buick’s manufacturing centers are quite diverse. Buick models are built at different manufacturing plants across the United States, as well as at centers in Canada, China, South Korea, and Germany.

Is Buick a Luxury Car?

As we briefly noted above, yes, Buick models are luxury vehicles. These days, the brand is a go-to for Crawfordville drivers who desire an affordable high-end car or SUV with plenty of premium amenities, but don’t wish to spring for the often high price tag that comes with the luxury segment. When you step into the cabin of modern Buick vehicles like the Enclave SUV and the well-appointed Encore compact crossover, you’ll find luxe features like:

  • QuietTuning™ technology
  • Beautiful wood tones and brushed chrome accents
  • Available perforated leather-appointed seats
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and Lane Change Alert
  • And more!
