An anonymous informant, but described as “reliable” has confirmed to Edmunds that three nameplates that rhyme with the glory years of Buick are on their way back, giving a little more weight to the information that was going in the same direction back in June. The informant also shared information giving us a fairly good indication of what to expect.

That Grand National, GNX, ams T-Type would use the same platform as the Cadillac ATS. Also note that the T-Type and Grand National would be sharing share engines and suspensions, just like it was the case in the ’80s.

Speaking of engines, it is difficult to determine what will be found under the hood the three new Buicks. Rumor send a 3.6-litre, twin-turbo V6 producing between 350 and 400 horsepower to power the T-Type and Grand National, while the 2014 Corvette’s LT1 V8 could power the GNX. Obviously, it is only speculation at the moment, meaning that the future might hold some surprises for us.

A six-speed manualor automatic transmission would be in charge to sens the fury to the rear wheels in all three cases.

If all goes as planned, we should expect an unveiling of the Grand National GNX and T-Type at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show. Stay tuned!
