Buick LeSabre

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"The Buick LeSabre is a full-size car made by General Motors from 1959-2005.
Prior to 1959, this position had been retained by the full-size Buick Special model (1936–58); in 1959 the LeSabre replaced the Special, a nameplate that was reintroduced in 1961 for Buick’s line of compact cars.
The name originated with the 1951 GM Le Sabre show car designed by Harley Earl; that car is often mistakenly attributed to the Buick division, but in fact it was presented as a GM vehicle without reference to a specific GM division.
Buick closely related their 1956-1957 models to the GM LeSabre by replicating the top section of the rear wing into their design.
The word LeSabre is French for sabre."
(…)

Sixth generation (1986–1991)

"The 1986 LeSabre was introduced on the new front wheel drive H platform, after departing from rear wheel drive on the GM B platform.
Joining the LeSabre on the H-body included the Oldsmobile Delta 88 and the 1987 Pontiac Bonneville, which returned to full-size after a short-lived run as a mid-size on the G platform. One of the most striking features of the LeSabre version of the H-body was the hood was hinged towards the front instead of towards the back near the cowl and windshield in the same fashion as that of the Buick Electra and Chevrolet Corvette of that era.

The all new styling and implementation of front wheel drive ushered in a new era for the LeSabre, being of a flush aerodynamic design. Most radical may have been the removal of Buick’s long standing Ventiports from the front fenders.

Most Buick LeSabre models from 1986 until 2005 were powered by Buick’s 3.8 liter (231 cubic-inch) V6 engine.
It started out with 150 hp (112 kW).
It added balance shafts to become the famous "3800" V6 for 1988, with 165 hp (123 kW).
This engine increased to 170 hp (127 kW) in 1991 with the addition of Tuned Port Injection.

The 1986 model, however, featured the 3.0 liter (181 cubic-inch) V6 as standard. Each year yielded slightly different design changes.
1986 is notable for its sealed-beam headlights,
1987 for the substition of more modern headlights with exchangeable bulbs as well as the introduction of door-mounted seat-belts.
In 1988 the 3.8 engine was changed over to the 3800 (vin code C) motor, while 1989 saw slight changes in the layout of the engine bay accessories (notably the position of the battery, washer fluid tank, and coolant overflow tank).
For 1990 there was a change in the design of the front bumper/grille assembly and different tail light design, while the 1991s were more or less identical to the 1990 model cars aside from a small power increase.

In 1986, there was a LeSabre Grand National model built to qualify the coupe body-style for NASCAR competition. The LeSabre Grand National is among the rarest of all Buicks ever made, with production numbers varying between 112 and 117 units. It was only available in black with gray interior.

After the end of production of the Grand National, a new sporting LeSabre appeared in form of the LeSabre T-Type, which was offered from 1987 until 1989.
The LeSabre T-Type had many unique options that were styled after the Regal Grand National and Regal T-Type models. Some of those options included blacked-out trim, gray-on-black seats (1987 only), gray-on-black door panels, gray dash and trim, and T-Type specific front and rear spoilers.

For 1990, the T-Type trim package was dropped due to slow sales and Buick’s repositioning within the GM hierarchy as a maker of "Premium American Motorcars" rather than sporty/performance models, a role instead falling to Pontiac.

Beginning in 1989 and continuing for several years, the Buick LeSabre received accolades from J.D. Power and Associates as one of the highest rated automobiles as far as customer satisfaction was concerned based on factors such as quality and reliability.·
