BUICK gL6

 

The GL6 to be sold below the successful GL8, is not related to the Opel Zafira, as sometimes suggested, but based on the PATAC K platform, this time with independent four-link rear suspension.  Over 36,000 were sold in its first full year, and 26,000 in 2019.

The GL6 is a three-row 6-seater; a 5-seater was added in October 2018 but withdrawn in mid-2020.  It is expected that an updated model will launch 7-seat models, while the engine will be the direct injection 1341cc turbo engine, mated to a CVT transmission.
