Buick History & GM Connection: Who Founded Buick?

Now that you know who owns Buick, let’s dive into the company’s history. Buick began making vehicles in 1903, which was a time of great automotive innovation. That same year, Buick incorporated and moved its plant from Detroit to Flint, Michigan, where it made the Buick Model B, its iconic first vehicle. Twenty years later, Buick manufactured its one-millionth vehicle just in time to celebrate its 20th anniversary.

William C. Durant, the founder and owner of Buick, is credited with making the company the best-selling automobile brand in the United States. He also founded GM, its parent company, in 1908. GM was born out of a yearning to acquire other automotive brands that would attract all economic groups in the U.S., with Buick being a top-of-the-line brand. So, if you’re wondering, “Is Buick a luxury brand?” the answer is yes, although we’ll get into that further below.

Over the years, Buick has made many legendary cars, such as:

  • Buick Super
  • Buick Roadmaster
  • Buick Special
  • Buick Riviera
  • Buick LeSabre
  • Buick Regal
