In South Korea Buick LaCrosse becomes Daewoo Alpheon

General Motors presently must be shying from resorting to badge engineering in the US but that certainly does not prevent it from applying the old ways when manufacturing automobiles in other nations across the world. At the Busan International Motor Show held in South Korea Daewoo unveiled recently a new Alpheon Sedan and the car is a true copy of the 2010 Buick LaCrosse that we used to admire. The Korean car makers agreed that the luxury car is based on the same platform on which the mid-size Buick was built but one glance at the car would reveal that it is a Xerox copy of the Buick.


When you open the bonnet you are most likely to see the same 3.0 Litre mid-size petrol V-6 that American consumers love very much. The only notable change which has taken place in the car is the Daewoo badge replacing the Tri-Crest badge of the Buick. At least the car maker did this much effort to make the car look different. On the Busan stage the Alpheon/LaCrosse joined the debuting Orlando MPV and according to the Korean auto maker the new sedan is likely to hit the dealerships somewhere in the middle of the current year. More information can be read from the press release issued to the website.
