The 2018 Buick Riviera is a passenger car manufactured by Buick in the years 1963-1999. The model variant Buick Riviera GS, manufactured between 1965 and 1975, is counted on the classic muscle cars. The Buick Riviera appeared in the catalog of the American brand Buick in 1949. The designation designates the “hardtop” model of the Roadmaster. In 1950, the use of this name extended to other Buick models with no central uprights and some Sedan Super and Roadmaster 4-door models.
In 1974, the bodywork was redesigned to not displease some buyers who found the previous model a little too eccentric but sales did not increase for that. For the first time since 1954, the name Riviera was on a car that had central uprights because all the Riviera now had fixed rear windows. The Buick GS version (Gran Sport) was abolished after 1975 and replaced by an S / R version that lasted only one year.

2018 Buick Riviera Engine
The 1977 model shrank and the 455 Buick engine that was standard the previous year was no longer available. Instead, the standard engine was the 350 Buick (5.7 liters) and the original 403 (6.6L) Oldsmobile was offered as an option. And in 1979, the Riviera became traction too. A more sporty model was offered again and called S / Type.
For the first time, the Buick Riviera was available with a 3.8-liter V8 Buick turbocharged engine that was standard on the S / Type while the other models received a different Oldsmobile V8 350 from 1978 that was made by Buick. In 1981, this model was renamed T / Type. The 2018 Buick Riviera Convertible version appeared for the first time on this model.
