2015 Buick Verano news, pictures, specifications, and information


Buick Verano is distinguished by thoughtful design, meticulous attention to detail, sculpted Buick brand cues and advanced interior acoustics, including Buick's trademark QuietTuning – a combination that is winning over a new generation of customers.

It delivers a premium level of equipment for the §egmènt, such as a standard rearview camera, available heated §teering wheel and soft-touch interior surfaces wîth world-class fit and finish. Those attributes have been recognized through awards and accolades such as Kelley Blue Book's 2014 5-Year Cost to Own Award (entry-level luxury car §egmènt), and it was named a Consumer Guide Best Buy for 2014.

For 2015, OnStar wîth 4G LTE and standard built-in Wi-Fi hotspot enhances Verano's connectivity, providing a mobile hub for drivers and passengers to stay connected. The hotspot is on whenever the car is on and comes wîth a three-month/three-gigabyte data trial.

The 2015 Verano is available in four models: the generously equipped Verano (1SD) and Convenience (1SG), along wîth Leather (1SL) and Verano Turbo (1ST). Starting wîth the Convenience group, side blind zone alert and rear cross-traffic alert crash-avoidance technologies are standard safety features, wîth forward collision alert and lane departure warning, enhancing the roster of crash-avoidance technologies.

A new exterior color is offered for 2015: Dark Sapphire Blue Metallic; and a new appearance package is available for all models except the Turbo. It includes a rear spoiler and a silver/bright chrome grille.

It complements Buick's four-year/50,000-mile bumper-to-bumper limited warranty and six-year/70,000-mile powertrain limited warranty.

Design and exterior features
Verano sports the Buick design cues pioneered on the Enclave and carried through on Buick's other sedans. An arching roofline connects a steeply raked windshield and fast-sloping rear pillars to give the car a sporty and elegant profile.

Strokes of chrome accent the car, along wîth signature features such as a black chrome waterfall grille and portholes. Blue translucent rings around the projector beam headlamp and chrome exhaust tip (dual exhaust outlets on 1ST) add to the sophistication and attention to detail. Heated outside mirrors are standard on 1SG, 1SL and 1ST and activate automatically wîth the remote starting feature at temperatures below 45 degrees F (7 C).

Exterior colors include Summit White, Quicksilver Metallic, Mocha Bronze Metallic, Smoky Gray Metallic and Dark Sapphire Blue Metallic, along wîth premium colors Crystal Red Tintcoat, White Diamond Tricoat and Carbon Black Metallic (each available for an additional charge).

Interior style, comfort and refinement
Verano's interior is marked by exceptional seat comfort and support, as well as premium, soft-touch materials. Metallic and wood trim accents and warm ambient lighting make the cabin an inviting environment.

Cashmere and medium titanium colors are offered on interiors wîth leatherette/fabric seating surfaces, while Ebony and Cashmere colors are offered on the available leather interiors.

Additional interior standard and available features include:
◾Push-button engine start
◾Dual-zone automatic climate control is standard
◾Heated, leather-wrapped §teering wheel
◾Six-way power driver's seat
◾Heated and leather-appointed seating – including heated cloth seats standard on 1SG
◾Available comfort package for 1SD includes power driver's seat and heated front seats
◾Electronic parking brake
◾Console armrest that slides and locks
◾Power windows wîth driver's express up/down and express down in the rear (1SL and 1ST models are equipped wîth a front passenger express-up feature)
◾Steering wheel radio controls
◾Heated outside rearview mirrors and self-dimming inside rearview mirrors
◾Úplevel front and rear reading lamps.

Buick's exclusive QuietTuning is designed to block or absorb sound and dampen or eliminate vibrations. It is included in every facet of the Verano's architecture to make it the quietest compact sedan on the road and quieter than many midsize and full-size cars.

Verano's quiet cabin is supported wîth numerous features including acoustical laminated glass, triple door seals and refined chassis dynamics.

IntelliLink and OnStar wîth 4G LTE
Verano's IntelliLink system is standard on all models and gives customers the best of both worlds when it comes to infotainment. It provides easy, intuitive operation of basic functions, yet it is also highly customizable and capable of linking up to 10 Bluetooth-connected devices such as smartphones and MP3 players, as well as ÚSB drives, giving users more ways of staying connected.

Enhanced connectivity and convenience include a new Text Messaging Alerts feature for smartphone users wîth Bluetooth profile (M.A.P.), which reads incoming texts through the vehicle's speakers, and Siri Eyes Free for iPhone iOS 6 and iOS 7 users to enhance connectivity and convenience. Each enables voice-controlled connectivity, to help keep phones safely stowed and hands on the wheel.

In addition to icons covering everything from navigation to phone to music apps such as Pandora, IntelliLink is designed to accommodate new features and enhancements and be highly customizable. Its seven-inch-diagonal screen also serves as the display for the standard rearview camera system and available navigation system, as well as the controller for Verano's audio system.

Complementing IntelliLink to enhance Verano's connectivity is new OnStar wîth 4G LTE and standard built-in Wi-Fi hotspot. It provides a mobile hub for drivers and passengers to stay connected – up to seven devices at once. The hotspot is on whenever the vehicle is on and comes wîth a three-month/three-gigabyte data trial, after which the customer can purchase additional data.

4G LTE is the most current and fastest mobile data network – 10 times faster than 3G and 100 times faster than the previous generation of OnStar hardware. And wîth OnStar, it also offers stronger, broader coverage than smartphones on the same network and it's easy to use: If the vehicle is on, the connection is on.

At the time of purchase, six months OnStar Directions and Connections includes all of OnStar's advisor-based safety and security features, including Automatic Crash Response and Stolen Vehicle Assistance, as well as Turn-by-Turn navigation. (posted on

Five years of OnStar Basic Plan includes RemoteLink Key Fob Services, allowing owners to remotely start and lock/unlock a car, and activate the horn and lights from anywhere wîth a data connection. It also includes OnStar Vehicle Diagnostics which runs monthly checks of a vehicle's engine, transmission, anti-lock brakes and more, and Dealer Maintenance Notification, which sends a diagnostic report directly to a preferred dealer to simplify service scheduling.

Powertrains and performance
Verano is equipped wîth a choice of two four-cylinder engines: a standard Ecotec 2.4L and an available Ecotec 2.0L turbo.

The Ecotec 2.0L turbo delivers 250 horsepower (187 kW) and 260 lb-ft of torque (353 Nm), providing on-demand power comparable to a V-6, but wîth the efficiency of a four-cylinder – and tuned to deliver unique performance, efficiency and quietness. Its development applied the best practices of technical centers in Europe and North America.

The Verano Turbo's performance is matched wîth efficiency. It achieves EPA-estimated fuel economy of 21 city and 30 highway.

Verano's standard Ecotec 2.4L wîth direct-injection, dual-overhead camshafts and variable valve timing delivers responsive performance. Rated at 180 horsepower (134 kW) and 171 lb-ft of torque (232 Nm), it helps provide EPA-estimated highway fuel economy of 32 mpg.

The Ecotec 2.4L is designed wîth features that reduce noise and improve its durability. Each piston has its own directed jet that sprays oil toward its skirt, coating its underside and the cylinder wall wîth an additional layer of lubricant. The extra lubrication cools the pistons, reducing friction and operational noise.

A fuel-saving, six-speed automatic transmission wîth Driver Shift Control is matched wîth each engine. A six-speed manual transmission is available wîth the turbo.

Chassis and suspension
Verano's refined, responsive suspension system includes decoupled MacPherson struts in the front that provide greater separation of extreme road conditions – large potholes, for example – from everyday driving conditions.

A technically advanced Watts Z-link design helps center the rear axle during cornering, which helps keep the Verano's handling responses symmetrical on both left-hand and right-hand turns. The linkage's capability to center the axle during cornering delivers a more-balanced driving experience because the rear suspension better follows the lead of the front suspension.

The Z-link design is also lighter and requires less space than a typical fully independent rear suspension. The lower weight contributes to Verano's fuel economy, while the compact design enables more trunk space.

Steering inputs are executed by a fuel-saving electric power §teering system, featuring a dual-pinion rack, while stopping power is handled by standard four-wheel disc brakes wîth anti-lock and Panic Brake Assist, develops additional brake pressure when an emergency braking situation is detected.

Verano also is equipped wîth GM's enhanced smart pedal brake override technology, which helps prevent unintended acceleration by reducing engine power when the brake and accelerator are depressed at the same time.

Safety and security
Verano employs radar- and camera-based safety features wîth carefully developed directional alerts that help drivers quickly identify potential crash situations so they can react.

Side blind zone alert and rear cross-traffic alert (standard on 1SG, 1SL and 1ST) helps avoid collisions by using radar to monitor areas the driver may not be able to see and provide alerts. Forward collision alert and lane departure warning use cameras to detect possible crash situations and alert the driver.

A rearview camera system is standard, wîth the display in the IntelliLink seven-inch color screen. Verano's other primary safety, crash-avoidance and post-crash features include:
◾Ten standard air bags, including frontal, head curtain side air bags, front and outboard rear-seat side-impact air bags and knee air bags
◾Pretensioners minimize forward movement during a collision, and are standard on the front safety belts. Load-limiting retractors cinch the belt more tightly
◾StabiliTrak electronic stability control system helps reduce the risk of rollover crashes by keeping the vehicle in the driver's intended path by applying throttle, braking or a combination of both
◾Collapsible pedal system, which allows the pedals to detach during a crash to reduce the risk of leg or ankle injuries
◾Four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes wîth panic brake assist
◾GM's enhanced smart pedal brake override feature reduces engine power when the brake and accelerator are depressed at the same time, to help reduce unintended acceleration
◾Available rear park assist.

Verano also features a strong, unitized body structure incorporating 60-percent high-strength steel in key areas to enhance strength and crash protection by helping to prevent intrusion into the passenger compartment.
