As one of the largest auto manufacturers in the United States, most people are familiar with the distinct look and feel of a Buick. But did you know that the company’s history dates back over 100 years?
Many people are unaware the first Buick was created back in 1899. That makes Buick the oldest automobile manufacturer in the United States, and one of just a few in the world that was around at that time. In its first year in operation, the Buick company only produced one vehicle; the 1904 Model B. The company quickly expanded its production, moving from Flint, Michigan, to a factory operation located in Detroit.
The first car that would qualify as full-size with a four-cylinder engine came about in 1907. From there, more vehicles with more options became available. As time went on, t...

Although the 2020 Buick Encore GX resembles the Encore, it offers a much more provocative design. Buick enthusiasts will notice elements of the Enclave and the Regal factored in.
