The History of the Buick Grand National

The First Turbocharged GN

While there was no Grand National for 1983, it's not because Buick had been slacking off; Buick had been working on a much sexier successor to the '82. The '84 GN came in all black paint, the signature look of the line, and with a turboed 3.8L V6 that produced a respectible 200hp and an awesome 300 ft-lbs of torque. The "little V6" posted quarter-mile times at the drag strip that were just a bit slower than the Corvette and way faster than the V8-powered Camaro.
