A Look Inside Buick Interiors with Liz Jewel


For the last 30 years, Liz Wetzel has continuously brought her talents to the General Motors Company, and after the debut of the Buick Avenir and Buick Cascade, we know why. With cutting edge technology and drop dead gorgeous details, the Avenir and the Cascada are the future that Buick has been talking so much about.

Wetzel has worn many hats during her time with General Motors. After joining the engineering group in 1986, Wetzel spent time working on the Cadillac Seville STS, Cadillac Eldorado, Cadillac Aurora, and eventually the Buick Rendezvous. From a stint working in General Motor’s European design studio in Rüsselsheim, Germany, as a director of interior design for Opel to becoming the first female vehicle chief designer at GM, Wetzel has continued to excel.

After three decades in the business, Wetzel credits her love of cars to the three previous generations of men in her family. Wetzel’s great grandfather was a tool-and-die maker for the Hudson motor car company, her grandfather worked for Chrysler, and then her father for General Motors. Wetzel recalls family weekends being filled with car rallies and race tracks, but it was eventually a tour of General Motor’s design center that really sealed the deal that automotive design was what she wanted to do.

Here at Arnie Bauer, we know our customers want the best quality vehicles, and the new Buick Avenir fills the gap perfectly. Wetzel describes the new Buick concept simply as “the ultimate Buick flagship, a higher level of passenger well-being with beautiful lines, spaciousness, and a renewed and modern palette.” She describes the new Cascada which will be presented at the 2015 Geneva International Motor Show as a “fresh and free spirited vehicle”, and an invitation to get out and discover. The Cascada is built for adventure and convenience, two features that today’s consumers not only want, but need.
