2011 Buick GL8 minivan China Edition will be released to the world on November 28, 2010. This business concept has been a strong inspiration for the minivan.

The next-generation Buick GL8 will be produceed by Shanghai GM. The pictures reveal that the 2011 Buick GL8 looks impressive, with a huge grille putting the finishing touches on the dramatic styling. the new van is almost a carbon copy of the Buick Business Concept. There are also bi-xenon headlights and chrome accents adding to the look.

The interior has wood trim that works its way around the iDrive-like controller, large LCD display, and an interesting dash-mounted shifter. It appears to have been stripped of the fancy electroluminescent dashboard and the wild LED headlamps, the majority of the design — including the odd step-down character line borrowed from Opel and Honda.

Buick has said two engine options will be available – a 2.4-liter Ecotec and a 3.0-liter V6. Although no official specifications have been revealed, it can be safely assumed that the four-cylinder will produce 182 hp (136 kW / 185 PS) and 172 lb-ft (233 Nm), while the V6 gives 255 hp (190 kW / 259 PS) and 211 lb-ft (286 Nm) of torque.
