2021 Buick GL6: a few changes...


The small GL6 minivan came out in 2017 and is a model specific to the Chinese market. Where Buick is a very popular brand.

For the 2021 model year, it is getting a few small changes. The main ones being inside.
With an all-new dashboard (bottom pic is the current model)
You can tell Buick is moving away from their "Opel influenced" interiors.
The 2021 redesign adopts an all-new dashboard design language for Buick. Something we have seen before in the larger GL8 (also for China)

In the US, the next Buick scheduled for a refresh is the 2022 Enclave. (pushed back from 2021)
It will be interesting to see if the revised Enclave gets a new dashboard, similar to the ones Chinese Buicks have been getting.
Or if they will just leave it alone like they did with the refreshed Chevrolet Traverse.

It'd be kind of nice niche to have the upscale GL6 and GL8 from Buick in the US as people movers; especially if they add some dark plastic cladding to appeal to crossover buyers. But I guess they'd compete with the Enclave.

I'd totally consider one to replace my Mazda5...
