Looks like we were wrong – sort of. We incorrectly announced that the Buick Verano 6-speed manual was slated to die for the 2015 model year, but luckily, we were wrong.
It turns out that contrary to reports from Buick, their own communications team erroneously announced the Verano MT’s death. It will, in fact, be sticking around for 2015, despite the low take rate. After driving Daveincalgary’s example, I am certainly glad that Buick is sticking with the Verano 6MT – I think I like it better than the ILX 2.4. Now if only we can raise funds for a Trifecta Tune. Kickstarter, anyone?
