After 50 years on the shelf, Buick is dusting off the 'Super' name for upcoming variants of the Lucerne and Lacrosse. Due to be unveiled in New York next week, the two vehicles will receive more power and an upgraded chassis, in addition to exclusive content and upgraded trim. A Buick spokesman did reveal that the Lacrosse Super will have portholes on the front fenders while the base Lacrosse will not. The Enclave may be the next Buick in the lineup to get the 'Super' treatment, but GM brass has yet to make a final determination.

We like the fact that Buick's making the effort to spice up the brand, and it's nice to know that your grandfather will soon be able to hit 60 in the high fives if the need presents itself.
