Who Owns Buick?

2020 Buick Encore


Buick has been a part of automotive history for decades, but just who owns Buick and where are Buicks made? Buick is currently owned by the automotive titan, General Motors (GM). GM owns other huge manufacturers like GMC, Cadillac, and Chevrolet. But Buick stands out from the competition with over 100 years in the business! Take a step back in history to see who makes Buick and find out how this legendary brand came to be.


Buick History

Buick started back in 1903, a time of major technological innovation within the automotive segment. Buick moved from Detroit to Flint, Michigan and unveiled its debut vehicle, the Buick Model B. William C. Durant, the owner of Buick, turned the brand into the best-selling automaker in the United States. But simultaneously, he founded GM in 1908 as a way to develop other automotive brands alongside the premium Buick line. So, is Buick a luxury brand? Yes, and it has been since the early 1900s!

Since its humble beginnings, Buick’s portfolio continued to expand. They created some of the most popular models on the The Villages roads like the Buick Super, Buick Roadmaster, Buick Special, Buick Riviera, Buick LeSabre, and the Buick Regal. Only 20 years after their debut, the brand produced its one-millionth vehicle! 

Where are Buick Cars Made?

We know that GM is who owns Buick, but where are Buick cars made? You might be surprised to hear that the Buick models in Williston are manufactured all around the world. Not only are Buicks made in the United States, but also in centers in Canada, China, South Korea, and Germany.
