    Buick Grand National, GNX to Return on Cadillac ATS Platform



    The Buick brand is about to get a lot more exciting, with the return of rear-drive turbocharged coupes, with legendary names like Grand National and GNX.

    First reported by AutoGuide forum community GMInsideNews this summer, a source inside the company has now reportedly confirmed that a three model lineup of rear-drive Buicks is planned.

    First up will be the T-Type, forming the basis of the brand, while a Grand National (available in black only) will be the performance model. GM’s current 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylidner as found in the ATS is possible, though a twin-turbo V6 is also rumored with power between 350 and 400 hp.

    As for the top-tier GNX model, it will most certainly use a turbocharged V6 or more, with the possibility of the new C7 Corvette’s LT1 V8. GM has already confirmed that the engine will fit in the ATS chassis.

    With a unique interior and exterior to the Cadillac, it’s expected that the new Buick coupes will share everything from the suspension, brakes and steering with the ATS.

    This is great news. the GNX was the last great muscle car ever produced. Even though it came with an automatic transmission is still hauled a**!
    I really hope Buick brings it back as it was back in the days, a vehicle built around true performance, and not some 2 door eco prius.
