You can't go wrong with an American-made vehicle, and that's exactly what Buick is known for. Buick is currently the oldest active American make, making them one of the best pioneers in the history of auto making. The company can trace its roots back as the Buick Auto-Vim and Power Company in 1899 by founder David Dunbar Buick, which is now under General Motors group of companies. Over the years, Buick vehicle have held some rather unique features that they have clearly made their own. Let's take a look at what has made this particular brand last for such a very long time.
David Buick's Trishield
Rooted in founder David Buick's ancestral coat of arms, the Trishield logo is unique to the brand. The old logo was comprised of a trio of shields in red, white and blue, denoting the LeSabre, Invicta, and Electra, which was the Buick lineup back then. These patriotic colors have since been simplified into today's elegant monochrome form, but you can still see people replacing their vehicle's emblem with the more classic red, white, and blue.
The most dependable brand in the US
In a J.D. Power and Associates Vehicle Dependability Study, Buick tied with Jaguar as the most dependable automotive brand in the United States. What else can you expect from the oldest automaker in the US? Today, Buick continues to grow and is currently ranked as the fastest growing vehicle brand in North America and has also attracted a younger customer demographic. It just shows that even today, Americans young or old, continue to place Buick in high regard when it comes to vehicle performance and safety.
An American tradition
With a rich history of innovation that goes back to the turn of the century, Buick is here to stay. Today's vehicles are designed to better appeal to the younger generation, just like their classic lineup appealed to their fathers and grandfathers back then. Sedans and crossover SUVs dominate Buick's current lineup, and they are loaded with advanced features such as fuel efficient technology, top-of-the-line safety devices, and most of all, the unique look and design that only Buick can offer.
