2012 Buick Verano Gets Quiet Tuning
“By positioning the Verano against the very best, our noise and vibration team went above and beyond to deliver the quiet driving experience for which Buicks have become known,” said Chuck Russell, Verano vehicle line director. “Quiet-tuning components and systems are built into every facet of the Verano’s architecture.”
In fact, the Buick noise and vibration engineers have replicated the interior of the LaCrosse model, using a dozen noise-reducing and noise-cancelling technologies throughout Verano’s body structure for increased cabin isolation and quietness – all without adding net weight to the car.
The Verano has undergone extensive testing, both virtual and physical, on its body structure, tires, chassis, interior and powertrain, under a variety of conditions to eliminate or reduce noise, vibration and harshness. Road noise was measured on a variety of surfaces and in a wind tunnel, as well as in thermal and cold chambers. A four-post shaker rig was used to evaluate squeaks and rattles.
“Verano was held to the highest standards, as accomplished on Buick Enclave, LaCrosse and Regal, and it achieves a new standard for interior quietness,” said Tony DiSalle, U.S. vice president of Buick Marketing. “We’re confident that luxury car shoppers will be hard pressed to find a quieter car at any price point on the market today.”
