Buick For 2000
By Carey Russ
Buick got the new year off to an early start with the introduction if the 2000 LeSabre in early 1999. A special edition of the Century makes its debut for the new century. Park Avenue and Regal models have a variety of enhancements. The "OnStar" driver assistance system is now available on all Buicks.
With a name like Century, and a new century starting, it was irresistible. So enter the model year 2000 Century 2000 special edition. It can be told from other Centurys by special trim and badging. Also offered are Limited and Custom models. All have a revised 3100 V6, with 175 horsepower, 15 more than last year. Comfort features optional on many competitors, including dual-zone climate control, power accessories, and remote keyless entry, are standard on all Century models.
The newest version of LeSabre, the near-perennial best-seller in the full-sized sedan class, made its debut last Spring. Only the 3800 Series II V6 drivetrain and the name remain unchanged, as the 2000 LeSabre is built on the same platform as the Park Avenue for increased space, greater comfort, and improved ride and handling abilities.
Park Avenue and Park Avenue Ultra
Buick's full-sized flagship Park Avenue models have a number of refinements increasing safety, stability, and comfort.
The mid-size Regal has interior enhancements and minor cosmetic changes this year.
