General Motors is looking to expand the Buick lineup to between 6 or 7 vehicles from its current 4. Buick is looking to add product as it attempts to lure buyers away from import luxury brands and attract a much younger audience as it shed its image as a car for retirees.

Among the products Buick is looking to introduce are the Chevrolet Cruze-based Verano compact, a hybrid version of the Lacrosse and a small crossover below the Enclave. Buick is also reportedly looking at introducing a full-size rear-drive sedan that may revive the Park Avenue nameplate.

The decision to jettison the Pontiac nameplate over Buick, which was perceived as a brand thats customer base was literally dying off, but Buick's incredibly strong image in China, as well as their infusion of new product has led many to feel that the General made a smart choice.

At first I was really doubtful of Buick making a successful comeback. But with their marketing strategy and having a car that can actually attract younger buyers. It looks like they will be able to shed their "senior citizen" image.

I sure hope so. I really want GM to succeed with this last chance they have to make it. I bought a Regal and I am a young guy so hopefully others follow suit. I would hate to look like I am driving a grandpa mobile!

Once the 2011 Buick Regal turbo with manual transmission comes out I'm sure a lot of young car buyers will go grab that one. So I wouldn't worry about it if I were you.
