2000 Park Avenue New Car Test Drive
Buick Park Avenue offers refinement and elegance, but it's a practical car. Quiet and luxurious, the Park Avenue provides a roomy cabin and a big trunk. Excellent road manners with surprisingly good dynamic capabilities make for an enjoyable driving experience.
StabiliTrak is now available on the Park Avenue. StabiliTrak is designed to help the driver maintain control when the car is in danger of sliding or skidding, and it comes standard on the 2000 Park Avenue Ultra. Further improving safety are side air bags, which come standard on Park Avenues, along with new rear child seat tether anchors.
Two models are available: Park Avenue and Park Avenue Ultra.
Park Avenue ($31,800) comes with a 205-horsepower 3.8-liter V6 engine. It comes trimmed in cloth with power windows, power mirrors, climate control, cruise control, automatic headlights and other convenience features. Anti-lock brakes and side air bags are standard.
Park Avenue Ultra ($36,800) gets a 240-horsepower supercharged version of the same V6. Trimmed in leather and wood, the Ultra adds heated front seats, mirrors with parallel park assist, a compass, moisture-sensing wipers and other features. In addition to its more powerful engine, the Ultra comes with StabiliTrak, traction control, a heavy-duty transmission and magnetic speed-sensitive power steering.
