Buick has officially unveiled their new Avenir concept.

Set to debut at the North American International Auto Show, the Avenir is a flagship sedan with a prominent waterfall grille that is flanked by LED headlights.  Moving further back, we can see ventilated front fenders, curvaceous body work and a "boattail" rear end.  The concept also has muscular rear fenders and 21-inch alloy wheels. 

The knock-out styling continues in the cabin as drivers will find themselves surrounded by high quality materials including premium leather upholstery, silk and bamboo wood trim.   The car also has ambient lighting, an ionic air filtration system, a wireless smartphone charger and an IntelliLink infotainment system with a 12-inch display.

Speaking of the latter, there's a driver recognition system which recognizes the driver and automatically loads their music preferences, calendar schedule and recently visited destinations.

Since the Avenir was designed to be a flagship, it comes loaded with high-end features including individual rear seats which are separated by a full-length center console.  Rear seat passengers are also treated to a dual screen entertainment system which promises to let them relax and enjoy the journey.

Buick was coy on technical specifications but confirmed the model is powered by a "next-generation" V6 engine that has direct-injection, a start/stop system and cylinder deactivation technology.  It is connected to a nine-speed automatic transmission and a twin-clutch all-wheel drive system.
