Background on Buick
David Dunbar Buick, a Scottish-born American inventor and industrialist, founded Buick Motor Company on May 19, 1903 in Detroit, Michigan. According to a General Motors historian, Buick spurred the creation of General Motors as an automobile conglomerate. William C. Durant was a Buick general manager and controlling investor before he founded General Motors in 1908 which became a holding company for Buick.
Today, Buick is one of the oldest brands in the world and the oldest active car brand in the United States. Known for its rich tradition of innovation, the brand that was once associated with full-size sedans for the older aged market now offers sports sedans and SUVs for younger consumers.
Buick’s reputation as an upscale brand dates back to the 1910s when it was nicknamed the “doctor’s car” because of its popularity among professionals. In North America, General Motors positions Buick luxury vehicles above its mainstream brands but below the flagship luxury Cadillac brand.
