All Buicks to Get Standard Multimedia System

IntelliLinkLater this year, Buick will begin rolling out its IntelliLink multimedia system as standard across the brand’s entire lineup. Among other features, it will give owners access to Pandora internet radio.

The new 2012 Buick Verano and 2012 Regal will come standard with a 7-inch touch-screen, while the LaCrosse will get an 8-inch screen. The 2013 Buick Enclave will get a touch-screen and IntelliLink standard, too.

Much like Chevrolet’s MyLink system, IntelliLink gives Buick owners access to Pandora and Stitcher internet radio streaming programs and a better voice-recognition system, which allows for simple voice commands. There’s also upgraded USB connectivity, including the ability to play music from a memory stick as well as an MP3 player. Those updates are on top of other recent OnStar enhancements that include hands-free texting and Facebook updates, along with navigation and traffic updates.

When the launch is completed, Buick will be one of the first automotive brands to offer a multimedia system as standard equipment.

Nice bonus for buicks, especially for the price of the verano and regal.

Seriously, multimedia on a Buick?

#1 request on the system from a "typical" Buick owner - where's the AM radio button?

Chevy has a version called Mylink that will be in the Equinox, 2013 Malibu and 2012 Volt. Not sure if Spark will get the same system.
