Buick is on the cutting-edge of luxury and technology, but it also leads the charge in the industry toward innovative design. To keep ahead of the competition, Buick plans to add three new colors for the 2018 Cascada this year, influenced by customer preferences in other industries, such as fashion and interior design.
What are these three new color options for the Buick Cascada? Carrageen Metallic, Dark Moon Blue Metallic, and Rioja Red Metallic, each more enticing than the last in the eyes of fashion designers and interior decorators.
In addition to the new colors for the 2018 Cascada, Buick will also be adding two new convertible tops for 2018 (Sweet Mocha and Malbec) and two additional exterior colors for the Sport Touring Dark Effects Package.
“Color is back,” explained Catherine Black, lead designer of Buick’s Color and Trim Studio. “While 80 percent of the exterior colors purchased globally are neutrals — black, silver, or grey — many customers are starting to move away from these neutral tones and have an appetite for entirely different colors like dark navy and maroon.”
Existing color options for the Buick Cascada include Sport Red, Flip Chip Silver Metallic, Summit White, Ebony Twilight Metallic, and Smoked Pearl Metallic.

In honor of a century of Chevrolet pickup trucks, Red Wing Chevy and the Chevrolet brand have decided to reflect on a little bit of Chevy trucks torque history.
Chevy’s very first truck—the 1918 One-Ton model—was powered by a 2.8-liter four-cylinder engine that produced just 45 lb-ft of torque. The closest engine in similarity that Chevy offers today is the 2.5-liter four-cylinder that powers the Colorado, except the Colorado’s engine creates 191 lb-ft of torque. On the other end of the spectrum, Chevy also currently offers the Silverado 3500HD with the Duramax 6.6-liter turbo-diesel V8, which is good for 910 lb-ft.
So how did Chevy grow from 45 lb-ft to 910? Here are a few of the brand’s torque highlights:
- 1929: Chevrolet introduced the first “stovebolt” six engine, good for 120 lb-ft of torque.
- 1955: Another first for Chevy occurred in the 50s, when Chevy unveiled its first small block V8 engine, which nearly doubled the torque output of the stovebolt six engine, making a whopping 238 lb-ft of torque.
- 1987: It wasn’t until the 80s that Chevy crested the 300 lb-ft mark for torque.
- 2001: Chevy dubs 2001 as the beginning of the “modern diesel era,” when its Duramax engine offered up 520 lb-ft of torque. Since then, the output has just kept on growing.
