Introduced in 1981, the fifth-generation Buick Century became a front-wheel-drive vehicle. The car was offered with sedan and coupe bodies, and in 1984 a station wagon appeared. There were also innovations under the hood: the Century was equipped with 2.2 and 2.5 gasoline four-cylinder engines, as well as a 4.3-liter V6 diesel engine. But the greatest demand, as before, were the versions with petrol “sixes” 2.8, 3.0, 3.1 and 3.8 with a capacity of 110 to 160 forces. All cars were equipped with automatic transmissions.
