Buick's New Convertible: The 2016 Buick Cascada

According to statistics from the Tulsa International Airport [1], Tulsa has a yearly average temperature of 60.8 °F. If that’s not perfect weather a convertible, we don’t know what is. We’ve been waiting for GM to bring a convertible back into the Buick or GMC line-up for some time now. It looks like Buick has answered our calls! Are you ready Oklahoma? Get ready to enjoy summer like never before, get ready for the all-new 2016 Buick Cascada

For the first time in 25 years, Buick adds a convertible to the new Buick line-up. 

 “The new, 2016 Buick Cascada is a beautiful, engaging convertible that represents the very best of the brand’s global development practices,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of Buick. “It’s a car that will delight customers with its fun spirit and help drive the momentum that’s fueling Buick’s success.”

One look at the Cascada, and you’ll know you’re about to experience the pure fun of driving. The 2016 Buick Cascada is a dynamic, stylish convertible that uses innovative powertrain and chassis technologies to complement the driving experience. Attention to detail and purposeful technologies elevate your expectations of just how satisfying a convertible can be. Balanced proportions and an elongated silhouette create a beautiful and luxurious profile. 

Cascada means waterfall in Spanish. But if you’re worried about an unexpected waterfall to come down from sky and ruin your nice drive, no need. When it comes to dropping the top on a whim, it lowers in only 17 seconds at speeds up to 31 mph, keeping you dry and comfortable. When it’s up, superior thermal and acoustic insulation contribute to driving comfort. The soft-top lets you enjoy a surprisingly quiet interior. As soon as the rain dissipates, drop the top with a flick of a switch and continue enjoying the great outdoors. When lowered, the top folds neatly and completely beneath a hard tonneau behind the rear seats, giving the car a pure open-air aesthetic. 

The 2016 Buick Cascada features Buick’s innovative OnStar 4G LTE with Wi-Fi hotspot, which can also be found on 2015 Buick models, including the 2015 Buick LaCrosse and 2015 Buick Encore

4G LTE is the most current and fastest mobile data network - 10 times faster than 3G and 100 times faster than the previous generation of OnStar hardware. And with OnStar, it also offers stronger, broader coverage than smartphones on the same network and it's easy to use: If the vehicle is on, the connection is on. It provides a mobile hub for drivers and passengers to stay connected. The hotspot is on whenever the vehicle is on and comes with a three-month/three-gigabyte data trial, after which customers can purchase additional data.  

The new 2016 Buick Cascada will be powered by a 1.6L turbocharged engine rated at 200 horsepower (149 kW). With more than 100 horsepower per liter, it’s one of the most power-dense engines in the segment. Direct injection and variable valve timing complement the turbo engine’s performance with efficiency. It is backed by a six-speed automatic transmission. Power from the turbocharged engine is translated into driving enjoyment via the innovative suspension system, which employs the sophisticated HiPer Strut front suspension pioneered on the Buick LaCrosse and Buick Regal. 

The Cascada’s 2+2 configuration offers comfortable room for four adults. 

“The Cascada’s design blends the suggestion of speed with sophisticated and uncompromising details,” said Holt Ware, Buick exterior design director. “Most convertibles are designed from existing coupes or sedans, meaning stowage of the top is an afterthought, but not this Buick. It looks handsome and has a premium appearance when the top is lowered – and a perfect, seamless profile when it’s up.”

Live life wide-open with the all-new Cascada convertible. Buick has planned production of the new Cascada for early 2016. Be the first to drive the 2016 Buick Cascada in Broken Arrow and Oklahoma.
