One of the cars that we were expecting to see at the Beijing Motor Show last month was the Buick Excelle GT sedan. Unfortunately, General Motors opted not to show the car there, perhaps fearing it would get lost in the shuffle. The Excelle GT is still going on sale in China this summer and it has now been spotted out in the wild completely free of all the camouflage that has been covering it until now.
This car will be coming to Buick stores here in the United States as well, although the exact timing is still unknown. The one thing we do know is that it will not retain the Excelle nameplate. Let's just hope that Buick doesn't bring back its Skylark or Century monikers. Either way, we're expecting the U.S. version to retain the 1.6-liter turbo inline-four that will power the Chinese model.
