Who Owns Buick?

Troy drivers who are eyeing an Envision or an Encore want to know all they can about their next vehicle. People often ask, “Who owns Buick,” “Who makes Buick,” or “Is Buick a luxury car?” The short answer to the question of ownership is “General Motors,” but the history of Buick is more interesting than that. Find more about who makes Buick below with Dave Arbogast!

Who Owns Buick? A Timeline 

General Motors, which also owns Cadillac, Chevrolet, and GMC, has a long and intertwined history with Buick. A Buick investor named William C. Durant founded GM in 1908, but Buicks were in production before that. 

  • 1903: In this great car manufacturing boom, the answer to the question, “Where are Buicks made,” changes quickly. The company Buick starts, quickly incorporates, and relocates from Detroit to Flint, Michigan within this year. Here the first Buick, the Buick Model B, is produced. 
  • 1908: The aforementioned William C. Durant founds GM to acquire many car manufacturers, including Buick. 
  • 1923: By the time of Buick’s 20th Anniversary, the company has already produced one million vehicles! 

Where are Buicks Made Today? Is Buick a Luxury Car?

Today, Dayton drivers can still purchase vehicles like the crossover standout Encore GX that are made by the same American company founded in the early 20th century, with some Buick models still being assembled near where it all began in Michigan. 

And is Buick a luxury car? The modern Buick is a standout in Vandalia for its high-end technology and amenities, like the IntelliLink Infotainment system, leather seating, QuietTuning with Active Noise Cancellation, and safety features like Lane Change Alert, to name a few! With regular updates to their design standards, it’s no wonder the brand has lasted this long!
