Hours ago, we arrived in Detroit for the 2014 North American International Auto Show. Today’s ten-hour road trip covered over 600 miles and crossed four states. Buick was kind enough to provide a 2014 Verano Turbo for the trek. As we found out, the Verano turned out to be the perfect car for the job. First through the fog of Western New York, then through the rains of Erie Pennsylvania, and finally into the sunlight of Ohio, the Luxo Blue Metallic Buick kept us warm and dry. As the sun set, we turned North had made our way into Michigan.
The comfortable suspension and supportive seats kept us from being cramped and sore as the hours wore on. The Buick’s quiet ride and excellent sound system combined to provide uninterrupted entrainment. Highway miles flew by with the Turbo’s 2.0L engine urging the sedan along. It produces a quiet but powerful 250hp and 260 lb-ft torque. We’ve found that the Verano Turbo isn’t necessarily set up to be a sport sedan, but the balance it strikes between power and comfort made it our best friend. Expect more about the Buick when things return back to normal after the NAIAS.
We’ll be covering all the new releases live from the show floor. Follow us on Facebook or Twitter for the latest information. Look for our usual post for summaries and opinions once all the press conferences have wrapped. Catch up with the full review of the Buick Verano Turbo here.
