The latest information about the 2019 Buick Verano say that this luxurious model will remain discontinued in the North America, Canada and Mexico. However, the second-generation of the Verano will receive some minor changes and improvements and appear in the Chinese market. The new third-generation of this model probably should be expected in the market after 2020 and maybe then Buick will return this popular car to the US.
When it comes to exterior of the 2019 Buick Verano, this model is going to make its appearance as a compact four-door sedan and hatchback. According to the information we have got, the new Verano will abandon its previous GM’s D2 platform and start using a new VSS-F (vehicle set strategy). Such a platform will be shared with many next-generation cars and crossovers that get a front-wheel drive system. The 2019 Verano should get a brand-new exterior design. It will remain luxurious, but it will be far more elegant and stylish than its predecessor. This car will be offered in several trim levels. It has been said that this model will stand on standard 17-inch and optional 18-inch aluminum wheels. We expect more information about its improved features and equipment soon.
The cabin of the 2019 Buick Verano will get an all-new interior design. Buick will use the Quiet Tuning system so you can expect that the outside noise and vibrations will be significantly reduced. Such a quieter cabin will provide more pleasure and comfort. It will accommodate five adult passengers. Buick will also use some high-quality materials and it will improve its technology. The driver should expect the voice-activated Intelli Link infotainment system provided on a larger touch-screen display. It will provide the next-generation features such as navigation system, dual-zone climate control, Bluetooth, USB ports, Wi-Fi connectivity and many more. Higher trim levels will offer even more luxurious features such as heated seats and a heated steering wheel. When it comes to safety systems and driver assist features, the new Verano will provide airbags, seatbelts, forward-collision warning, blind-zone alert, anti-lock braking system, electronic traction control, electronic stability control and others.
Two options have been discussed when it comes to engine that the 2019 Buick Verano will offer under its hood. The first one, that comes as standard, will use a 2.4-liter four-cylinder which delivers 180 horsepower and 171 pound-feet of torque. The other option, found in performance-oriented trim levels, will come with a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder that is expected to produce 250 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. Both of these engines will be mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.
