    I was having a discussion with my girlfriend tonight about Buicks and whether or not they were better than Cadillacs. My thoughts are they are the same "level", ie Cadillacs : Chevy :: Buick : GM

    So we have:
    Toyota -> Lexus
    Nissan -> Infinity
    Ford -> Lincoln
    Chevrolet -> Cadillac/Oldmobile?
    GMC -> Buick

    Anything else?

    Just curious, where did you come up with Cadillac being the higher end of Chevy & Buick being an upscale GMC? Cadillac, Chevrolet, Buick, and GMC are all individual parts of the parent company GM, AFAIK. Someone chime in if I'm wrong...

    yes they are all part of GM, but cadillac is the upscale brand version to Chevrolet/GMC. (ie the cadillac escalade is the luxury version of the tahoe etc). Not all cadillac vehicles are a upgraded chevy but that is the best way to descibe it. similar to the infiniti being more luxury than nissan but same cars and owned by nissan. but i think i see where you are going with the question as GM is the parent company and not Chevy. but thats the design setups

    Yeah, all I'm asking is how is Cadillac an upscale Chevy, not an upscale GM automobile line. What makes the Buick the high-end GMC? How did he differentiate the two? By that reasoning, Buick could be the fancier Chevy and Cadillac could be the luxury GMC. It doesn't seem to correlate directly with GM's. BTW, I've never seen a GMC car.:na:

    Maybe I'm being a little picky...sorry about that. Guess I'm just having a rough day.
