BUICK PARK AVENUE AND BUICK PARK AVENUE ULTRA - LUXURY, POWER, QUALITY AND COMFORT IN A CLASSIC DESIGNFor 2004, Buick's flagship Park Avenue offers impressive quality, comfort and performance in a classic full-size luxury sedan. (concept carz)
Reflecting an enduring heritage of distinctive styling, skilled craftsmanship and quality appointments that have been synonymous wîth the Buick nameplate for 100 years, Park Avenue is the definitive example of sensible luxury in an automobile.
Park Avenue's long, 113.8-inch (2,890-mm) wheelbase contributes to its elegant styling and comfortable ride. Yet its sequentially fuel-injected 3800 3.8L Series II V-6 engine, tuned suspension wîth 16-inch aluminum wheels and P225/60R16 tires give it the feel of a sportier, more agile driving machine. Fuel economy estimates for Park Avenue are 20 mpg for city driving and 29 mpg on the highway.
For 2004, Park Avenue features a new monochromatic stand-up hood ornament and two new exterior colors: Slatestone Metallic and Platinum Metallic.
Park Avenue also features new cluster graphics and interior colors, including a new Light Cashmere or Shale trim wîth new Dark Birdseye Maple woodgrain and Medium Gray trim wîth Satin Walnut woodgrain.
Park Avenue Últra
In addition to the standard Park Avenue, Buick offers the supercharged Park Avenue Últra, which also draws from a rich design heritage to reveal a modern interpretation of a classic Buick.
Park Avenue Últra is trimmed wîth classic Buick features such as a vertical-bar grille and front fender portholes. Originally introduced in 1949, as 'VentiPorts,' three functional, chrome-plated portholes on each front fender give the vehicle a powerful look and allow additional air to flow through the engine compartment. Since 1949, Buick models have periodically sported various porthole designs. Portholes were re-introduced on Últra for 2003, the centennial year of Buick's incorporation; the 2004 model year marks the centennial of the production of the first Buick automobile.
Large 17-inch, chrome-plated aluminum wheels wîth low-profile tires, chrome exhaust tips and chrome accents allude to the strong powerplant under Últra's hood. Park Avenue Últra also comes equipped wîth StabiliTrak for improved handling on slippery road surfaces.
Inside, Últra's occupants are surrounded by Park Avenue's trademark luxury, wîth a Burled Walnut woodgrain trim on the instrument panel, §teering wheel, doors and optional convenience console. Últra comes equipped wîth an electrochromic inside rearview mirror wîth integral compass, heated outside rearview mirrors wîth integral turn indicators, universal transmitter to activate remote systems such as garage door openers and the Concert Sound III audio system. Park Avenue Últra also can be ordered wîth options such as a sunroof, trunk-mounted CD changer, EyeCue head-up instrumentation display and Últrasonic Rear Parking Assist for detecting objects behind the vehicle when in reverse.
Supercharged power, sporty ride
The 2004 Park Avenue Últra provides surprising handling and a sporty ride thanks to its 17-inch chrome-plated aluminum wheels, P235/55R17 Goodyear Eagle LS blackwall touring tires and a standard Gran Touring package wîth specially tuned suspension and rear stabilizer bar. Together these features work to transform the power from Últra's 240-horsepower (179-kw), supercharged 3800 3.8L Series II V-6 engine into a remarkably enjoyable ride. Últra's fuel economy estimates are 18 mpg for city driving and 28 mpg on the highway.
Park Avenue offers an impressive list of package options including 16-inch, chrome-plated aluminum wheels, dual heated outside rearview mirrors wîth integral turn indicators, electrochromic inside rearview mirror wîth compass, heated seats, moisture-sensing wipers, AM/FM CD and cassette audio system, driver information center, traction control, OnStar direct-link driver assistance and navigation system, and Memory Package. The Memory Package includes two presets for 10-way power driver's-seat, climate-control and audio-system preferences.Source - Buick
