2005 Buick Century - Price Quote

Visit Buick for more information on the Buick Century.

Buick's lowest priced car is back for the last go round. Buick is retiring several models, the Century, Park Avenue and Regal, in order to make way for a new consumer orientation to SUVs and the new Sport Touring Vehicle class (the SUV-Car crossover). However, they are going out with a flourish.

Available Models
The 2005 Buick Century comes with three trim levels, last year's upscale Custom and Limited models and one-of-a-kind Special Edition, produced for this last year.

Interior Features
The 2005 Buick Century is a roomy full-size four-door sedan, capable of seating up to six passengers. It has good head and legroom in all seating positions, meaning even full-size adults won't be squashed on the inside.

This year's basic model has the same features as last year's Custom version, formerly an up-level trim. The result is a generous package of standards that includes remote keyless entry, a six-way power driver seat, cruise control, power programmable door locks with enhanced safety and lockout protection, a CD player, an air filtration system and power windows. Up one level, the Limited Package adds leather upholstery, steering-wheel mounted audio controls and rear assist grips with switchable reading lamps. Chrome wheel covers, color-keyed floormats and a trunk cargo net add to the offering.

The Special Edition package has all that and some comfort and style enhancements that include dual zone climate control.

Exterior Features
The Limited Package includes 15-inch chrome plated wheel covers while the Special Edition has actual chrome wheels topped off by a chrome grille and 225/60R16 tires.

Powering the 2005 Buick Century is a 3.1-liter V6 engine with the following specs: 175 horsepower at 5200 rpm and 195 lb-ft of torque at 4000 rpm. It is mated to a proven 4-speed automatic transmission, resulting in fuel ratings of 20 mpg in city driving and 30 mpg on the highway.

Buick's Convenience Plus package of features returns, giving the Century a number of handy items. These include delayed entry and exit lighting, theater dimming, flash-to-pass control, battery rundown protection, lockout protection, delayed locking, an auxiliary power outlet and daytime running lamps.

Safety and Security
Front airbags comes standard as do 4-wheel disc brakes which can, however, be replaced by optional 4-wheel antilock disc brakes, traction control and a tire-pressure monitor on the Special Edition. In addition to a sturdy, solid construction, the Century has the LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) system for young passengers. LATCH uses six metal hooks to help adults easily and safely attach child safety seats. Dual front airbags are also standard, and a driver's side-impact airbag is available with leather-appointed seating surfaces
