2001 Buick Century 4.3 12
$ 978-5,410
April 20, 2001
Vehicle Overview
OnStar, General Motors satellite-based communication system, is a new standard feature on the Century Limited, the top-shelf version of this midsize sedan. OnStar is now a factory-installed option for the base Custom model.

The Century vies with the full-size LeSabre in a race to be Buick’s most popular model. It is based on the same design as the Regal, also a midsize sedan, but caters to an older crowd with more conservative styling and a front bench seat that gives it six-passenger capacity.

Though the Century’s styling is similar to the Regal’s, a different grille, rear features, trim and wheels give it a unique appearance at first glance. Both ride a 109-inch wheelbase and come in four-door body styles.

Only the bench seats separate the six-passenger Century’s design from that of the sportier Regal, which is available with front buckets. All models come with a three-place front bench seat with a folding center storage armrest.

Under the Hood
A 175-horsepower 3.1-liter V-6 engine and a four-speed automatic transmission comprise the only powertrain for the Century. The similar Regal comes with a 3.8-liter V-6.

In addition to the federally required dual front airbags, the Century also comes with standard antilock brakes and traction control. A side-impact airbag for the driver’s seat is included with leather upholstery, which is standard on the Limited and optional on the special edition version of the Custom.
