2014 Buick Verano

New for 2014

The 2014 Buick Verano now gets the latest version of IntelliLink, heated front seats standard on the Leather and Turbo models, and a universal home remote with three-channel garage door opener on some models, as well as two new available safety features: active forward collision alert and a lane departure warning. Also added is Smoky Gray Metallic as an exterior color.

Vehicle Overview

The Buick Verano is the automaker’s entry into the premium compact sedan segment, and fits at the below the sporting Regal and upscale LaCrosse.

Summary

The 2014 Buick Verano comes standard with a 2.4-liter I-4 that makes 180 hp and 171 lb-ft of torque connected to a six-speed automatic, with an EPA-estimated 21/32 mpg city/highway. The optional 250-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter I-4 produces 260 lb-ft of torque and can be had with an automatic or six-speed manual. Fuel economy is EPA-rated at 20-21 mpg city and 30-31 mpg highway, depending how you elect to change gears.
The 2014 Buick Verano received a five-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA (out of a possible five stars), and in IIHS testing earned a rating of good for the four categories in which it has been tested (the highest-available rating is good). The Verano now has available forward collision alert and lane departure warning systems.

What We Think

If the 2014 Buick Verano can be called anything, it’s quiet. In a Driven review of a 2013 Verano Turbo we couldn’t help but notice that, even with the manual transmission, it was quiet and rather uninvolving. During the 2012 Automobile of the Year we commented, “Lamentably, it's not the kind of car that enthusiasts will want, but that's not Buick's problem. The interior is tasteful, the seats are among the best I've experienced this week, and the brakes have remarkable feel . . . It is well screwed together, quiet, and peppy enough (just), and it corners respectably, with a good, solid ride and well-controlled body motions. I hate to admit it, but I kind of like it.”

2014 Buick Verano Turbo In Motion Three Quarters
Officials from Buick confirm the 2015 Buick Verano Turbo will in fact retain its available six-speed manual transmission, after internal confusion late last week led to a report that it would be discontinued. Buick initially said that the 2015 Buick Verano Turbo, the only Verano model that offers a manual transmission, would soldier on with only a six-speed automatic.

You win some, you lose some. Though the 2015 Buick Verano adds a new appearance package and a new paint color, it is no longer available with a six-speed manual transmission. The shift-yourself option was reportedly dropped because very few Buick Verano customers chose it.

Summary
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2014 Buick Regal, LaCrosse, Verano, and Enclave, and Chevrolet Impala, Malibu, Cruze, and Traverse, and GMC Acadia vehicles equipped with automatic transmissions. In the affected vehicles, the transmission shift cable adjuster may disengage from the transmission shift lever. As such, these vehicles do not conform to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 102, "Transmission Shift Lever Sequence, Starter Interlock, and Transmission Braking Effect." They also fail to conform to FMVSS number 114, "Theft Protection and Rollaway Prevention."
Consequences
If a vehicle's shift cable disengages from the transmission shift lever, a driver may be unable to shift gear positions and the indicated shift position may not represent the gear position the vehicle is in. Should a disengagement occur while the vehicle is being driven, when the driver goes to stop and park the vehicle, the driver may be able to shift the lever to the "PARK" position, but the vehicle transmission may not be in the "PARK" gear position. If the vehicle is not in the "PARK" position there is a risk the vehicle will roll away as the driver and other occupants exit the vehicle or anytime thereafter. A vehicle rollaway increases the risk of injury to exiting occupants and bystanders.
Remedy
General Motors will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and replace any affected transmission shift cable adjusters, free of charge. The recall began on April 10, 2014. Chevrolet owners may contact General Motors at 1-800-222-1020, Buick owners at 1-800-521-7300, and GMC owners at 1-800-462-8782. General Motors' number associated with this recall is 14048.
