One Buick Grand National fan is not satisfied with his current collection. While some modern American muscle car fans may be happy with cars such as the Dodge Charger or the Chrysler 300, another Buick Grand national enthusiast has decided to change it. It is not surprising that the Buick Grand National has been included in the modernized versions of classic cars.
2025 Buick Grand National Redesign
This rendering, like the classic Grand National is unconventional in comparison to its competitors. This rendering is a departure from the classic Grand National, which was distinguished by its turbocharged V6 engine in a sea full of V8s. It also differs from the current crop of muscle cars because it sacrifices some of the menacing poise of the oval track for a more mature look that would be perfect for everyday driving.
The rendering is similar to the original with its large wheels and boxy shape. The roof is almost cut straight to the quarter panel in its signature move, which takes the French word coupe literally. The rendering does not forget its racing heritage, however, with retro front lips, side skirts, and rear spats flowing into an aggressive diffuser. The chrome trim around windows and the polished dual exhaust add to these race-inspired features.
The artist has provided details on the parts used to create this rendering. The headlights of a 2020 Buick Regal were used to create the body from a Chevrolet Impala from the late 2000s. The wheels come from the BMW 3 Series and the spoiler comes from a Corvette 2017. The wheels are from a 2017 Corvette, while the spoiler is from a new BMW 3 Series.
Many people think that foreign influences are not appropriate for an American muscle car. But when you get down to the nitty-gritty, what was the source of the inspiration that drove Buick engineers in 1987 to use a V6 turbo? It may not have been from Japan but it is reasonable to assume that it did not come from Detroit. As the artist in this rendering shows, if Buick decides to bring back the Grand National it is fair to assume that it won’t follow the convention route.
It is impossible to predict a true redesign of the new Buick Grand National 2025. We can see that the original design of the Buick Grand National was the perfect symbol for a masculine car. The average American muscle car resembled the Grand National the most. Old-timers in good condition are rare, so they will fetch a high price. Today, we have a design that was created to show what it would look like at some point in the 20th century.
The new model will be based on the Cadillac CT6 platform and body, minus the rear door. The frontal fascia will be redesigned with a more forward look, modern grills, and also front lights. Cadillac’s sleek grilles and headlights would be removed, and replaced with a boxier design that resembles a Buick. Designers and dealers would find this idea challenging since the original Buick is not involved in the redesign.
A Grand National achieved 60 miles per hour from 0 in just 4.9 seconds, according to a test by Car and Driver. The Grand National was a tenth of a second faster than the Countach and Ferrari Testarossa, two of the greatest automobiles ever to appear on a poster. In those days, Grand National was a prestigious title and widely used by the police and public service.
This engine change should not only be more powerful but also reflect the decade. It would be the cherry on top of a modern Buick GNX that had a twin-turbo V6 engine like the original GNX or another legendary vehicle, the GMC Syclone. The motor was the reason why it was one of the most popular muscle cars in the 1980s. If the new edition is a surface model, this type of engine can be expected.

2025 Buick Grand National Release Date & Price
The GM remained silent about this issue so the whole concept is in question. Since the revival of semi-cars is not welcomed yet, it’s best to consider this project as a rumor. We can only assume that the online variants are fake and that we cannot predict what will happen to this model.
Even for older models, the prices are still very high. Some of the vehicles that are still available have a starting price of $45,000. According to the latest predictions, the new Buick Grand National 2025 will cost at least $55,000 with base features. We doubt that GM is going to introduce this model at all.
