In line with General Motors' plans for Buick to be an important marque, its model range will be expanded in an effort to widen its market share.

Buick's current model range includes four models but there are plans to offer six or seven models more, according to Automotive News. John Schwegman, Head of Marketing at Buick, revealed this preview of the lineup changes. He explained that the transformation plans will be realized within the next three years.

For the 2012 model year, the Buick Verano, its version of the European Opel Astra, or the Buick Excellence GT in China, will be included.

The vehicle shares its front-wheel drive Delta platform with the Chevrolet Cruze. In about the same period, a performance version of the Regal, the GS, will be introduced. This vehicle will have the features of the Opel Insignia OPC.

It will have an output of over 255 hp & 295 lb-ft of toque and an adaptive all-wheel drive system. In addition, GM is working on a wagon version of the Opel Insignia, which could enter the market as a Buick.

The LaCrosse sedan will get a hybrid version for the same model year and will soon have a facelift. The 2016 model year will bring in a new generation. However, the Lucerne model will be terminated after the 2011 model year.
