BÚICK PARK AVENÚE AND BÚICK PARK AVENÚE ÚLTRA – SMOOTH POWER, ELEGANT DESIGN, QÚIET COMFORT IN A LÚXÚRY FLAGSHIP SEDAN
Buick offers a Special Edition of its Park Avenue and Park Avenue Últra for the 2005 model year, as it commemorates the final model year for these flagship sedans.

At the end of the abbreviated model run will be 3,000 Special Editions of Park Avenue and the supercharged Park Avenue Últra sedan, featuring special badging, standard chrome wheels, and an optional, exclusive chrome wheel on the Últra. The wheels are 16-inch on the Park Avenue and 17-inch on the Últra. The badge on the C-pillar features the words 'Special Edition' under an illustration of the New York City skyline. Several hundred of these Special Edition models will be offered in an optional black and platinum two-tone exterior finish.

Besides the Special Edition, other changes to Park Avenue for 2005 include an all-new grille design, and select features previously reserved for Park Avenue Últra. One such feature is the addition of front fender portholes, one of Buick's most recognizable design cues throughout the latter half of the brand's 100-year history.

Appearing in various forms since first being introduced for 1949, the latest rendition of these originally named Buick 'VentiPorts' includes three fully functional, chrome-plated portholes on each front fender, which enable additional air to circulate throughout the engine compartment. This porthole design was re-introduced on the Park Avenue Últra for 2003, the centennial year of Buick's incorporation.

Other changes to Park Avenue and Park Avenue Últra for 2005 include a revised taillamp design using clear lens graphics; a revised deck lid appliqué; and name badges repositioned from the rear quarter panels to the license plate header. Inside, plush carpeted front floor mats embroidered with the Buick name are new on the Park Avenue.

2005 Buick Park AvenuePark Avenue and Park Avenue Últra also feature a new exterior color for 2005: Cashmere Metallic.

As the flagship of the Buick car line for 2005, Park Avenue embodies the brand's core attributes: smooth power, elegant design, expertly crafted interiors, and a driving experience that is quiet, comfortable and agile. Park Avenue and the supercharged Últra offer a blend of distinctive and classic design, expert craftsmanship, and quality appointments that have been synonymous with Buick for more than 100 years.

Park Avenue Últra
The 2005 Park Avenue Últra is powered by a 240-horsepower (179 kw) supercharged 3800 3.8L Series II V-6 engine. Últra's fuel economy estimates are 18 mpg for city driving and 28 mpg on the highway. Complementing this smooth and powerful engine is a specifically tuned Gran Touring suspension package that works in concert with low-profile P235/55R17 Goodyear Eagle LS blackwall touring tires and 17-inch, chrome-plated aluminum wheels for an agile yet comfortable ride. Park Avenue Últra also comes equipped with StabiliTrak for enhanced handling and control throughout a wide range of driving conditions.

Inside, Park Avenue Últra surrounds its occupants with an expertly crafted environment, with details such as burled walnut woodgrain trim on the instrument panel, steering wheel, doors and optional convenience console. Additional standard features include an electrochromic inside rearview mirror with integral compass, heated outside rearview mirrors with integral turn indicators, moisture-sensing automatic windshield wipers, a universal transmitter to activate remote systems including garage door openers, and a nine-speaker, 154-watt Concert Sound III audio system.

Optional equipment includes a power sunroof, trunk-mounted 12-disc CD changer, EyeCue head-up instrumentation display and Últrasonic Rear Parking Assist, for detecting objects behind the vehicle when in reverse.

Park Avenue
Park Avenue's long, 113.8-inch (2,890-mm) wheelbase contributes to its elegant styling and comfortable ride. Providing ample reserves of acceleration is a 205 horsepower (153 kw) 3800 3.8L Series II V-6 engine. Fuel economy estimates are 20 mpg for city driving and 29 mpg on the highway.

In addition to a long list of convenience and safety features, available equipment includes 16-inch, chrome-plated aluminum wheels, dual heated outside rearview mirrors with integral turn indicators, electrochromic inside rearview mirror with 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. An optional Memory Package provides two pre-set adjustments for the 10-way power driver's-seat, climate-control and audio-system preferences.

A long, proud tradition

Buick introduced the Park Avenue name for the 1978 model year, as a series designation for the rear-drive Electra flagship model. The Park Avenue was switched over to front-wheel drive, along with the Electra, for 1985. For 1989, the Park Avenue Últra sedan was introduced as part of the Electra series. The Electra name was dropped for the 1991 model year. Late in the 1991 model year, the first supercharged Buick was the Park Avenue Últra.
