A look at the upcoming and current Buick and GMC lineup

GM teases new Buick Regal, LaCrosse, GMC Sierra, Yukon coming within 12 months

General Motors announced last night that the Buick and GMC brands would be receiving nine new models in their lineup over the next 12 months with some of the most popular vehicles in those two brands getting a refresh – including the Buick Regal, the Buick LaCrosse, the GMC Sierra and the GMC Yukon.

While the company has not given any definite indication as to when these new models would arrive, GM has stated that the there will be nine new models among the GMC and Buick brands over the next 12 months beginning with the new Buick Enclave, the new Buick Encore and the new GMC Acadia that we have already seen. However, joining those three models that have already made their auto show debuts will be a new Buick Regal and Buick LaCrosse along with a new GMC Sierra, GMC Sierra HD, GMC Yukon and GMC Yukon XL. There will also be a new GMC Canyon but it may come outside of that 12 month window.

We have known for some time that the General Motors full sized pickup family would be getting a redesign in the near future so news that there will be a new GMC Sierra and Sierra HD comes as no surprise. GM has stated that there will be a new GMC Canyon midsized truck coming but no timing has been announced for the arrival of that new model. With the full size trucks getting a facelift, a new Yukon and Yukon XL also don’t come as a shock as those roomy utes have generally shared a look with the Sierra pickups.

On the other hand, it seems surprising that the fairly young Buick Regal and the popular Buick LaCrosse will also see revamps of their own so soon after being introduced with their current generation.
