Visit Buick for more information on the Buick Park Avenue.

The Buick Park Avenue has long been a leader when it comes to blending style, luxury and performance in a sedan. For 2003, the manufacturers of the Park Avenue pay homage to this tradition, offering a new Ultra model that reaches into the past for its design inspiration. With features reminiscent of the original, unveiled all the way back in 1949, the new Ultra is given a classic look with a modern car's attention to power and comfort.

Available Models
The 2003 Buick Park Avenue is available in the aforementioned Park Avenue Ultra model and a base model as well.

Interior Features
The 2003 Buick Park Avenue is laid out with roominess as a top priority. Up to six passengers will find enough space in all seating positions to stretch out and enjoy the ride. And the ride is certainly made comfortable with the number of standard features provided. The base Park Avenue comes filled with amenities, including power steering, tilt leather-wrapped steering wheel with radio controls, air conditioning with dual-zone automatic climate control, cruise control, leather upholstery, 10-way power front seats with driver-seat lumbar adjustment and remote keyless entry.

The new Ultra model has a distinct interior style to match its vintage outer look. Burled Walnut Woodgrain can be found on the steering wheel, instrument panel trim and door trim, while the instrument panel is also given a premium feel with new contemporary gauge-cluster graphics.

Exterior Features
The Ultra's exterior style hearkens back to the days of jazz and the beat generation. The special retro design features such things as a "waterfall" grille, tri-shield Buick insignia and chrome-plated exhaust tips. Also prominent are classic front fender "VentiPorts" portholes, whose functional application is to allow increase airflow to the engine compartment.

The base model and the Ultra are given two separate engines that both provide plenty of power. The former is equipped with a 3.8-liter V6 with 205 horsepower at 5200 rpm and 230 lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm, which gets 20/29 mpg (city/hwy). The Ultra has a juicy 3.8-liter supercharged V6 with 240 horsepower at 5200 rpm and 280 lb-ft of torque at 3600 rpm, translating into a fuel economy of 18/28 mpg (city/hwy). 4-speed automatic transmission is standard on both models.

The Ultra provides maximum performance features in its standard package. Along with an antiskid system, a Gran Touring Suspension package is also standard, offering firmer suspension, aggressive tires and turn-signal lights in the mirrors.

Safety and Security
There is no ignoring safety and security with the Park Avenue. Both models have dual front airbags and 4-wheel antilock disc brakes.
