The E-body coupes were converted to unibody construction and further
downsized for 1986, to a 108 in (2,700 mm) wheelbase shared with the Buick
Regal. The V6 was now the only engine, rated initially at 142 hp (106 kW)
SAE and 200 lb·ft (270 N·m) of torque. It used the turbo-Hydramatic 440-T4 automatic with a 2.84:1
final drive ratio. This generation was noted for advanced electronic
instrumentation, including the first automotive touchscreen controls, which
were on a dash-mounted 9-inch (230 mm) CRT display. Four-wheel disc brakes
were standard. With a choice of three suspension packages available, up to
the performance oriented FE3 setting, handling was notably improved. The
Riviera placed fourth for Motor Trend's 1986 Car of the Year contest.
Fuel economy was notably improved for the 1986 Riviera, but the substantial
investment in the downsized, transverse engine front wheel drive platform
resulted in a substantial price increase, to $19,831 to the base model and
$21,577 for the new T-Type. Downsizing also resulted in a dimensional
similarity to smaller, less expensive offerings from GM, with shared
styling cues reinforcing the unfortunate resemblance.
1989-1993 Buick Riviera
The smaller dimensions, generic styling, and lack of V8 power soured
buyers, and sales plummeted to 22,138 for 1986, only 15,223 for 1987, and a
dismal 8,625 for 1988. A restyle for 1989 that added 11 inches (280 mm) to
the overall length (on an unchanged wheelbase) helped, but only
incrementally, Boosting sales to
21,189 for 1989, but dropping to a low of 4,555 for 1993, the shortened
final year of that model. The last 1993 Riviera rolled off the
Detroit/Hamtramck Assembly plant line on December 10, 1992.
Sales in the personal luxury coupe segment were in decline from 1986
onward, although it is unclear whether the general market trend was
initiated by the poor public reception of GM's newly downsized offerings or
an inevitable shift in the tastes of the buying public.
I created this video with the YouTube Video Editor
1980 Buick Riviera Dealer Demonstration
This is form a 1979 promotional LaserDisc that I found it is for 1980 model
In 1978 GM contracted with Pioneer and MCA/DiscoVision to put the Pioneer
PR-7800 LaserDisc player into its dealerships, the discs where to be used
for demonstrations as in this disc or for training purposes.
Now in the early days of laserDisc manufacture there was a very high
failure rate, sometimes as high as 85% during the mastering/pressing
process, so that left a lot of sides of discs that where unusable. Well
these where used to fill the blank side of a disc, the "dead" side was then
coated with a special plastic that was clear to the human eye, but it would
not reflect the laser beam, thus the side would not play. Well the coating
can be removed with rubbing alcohol, which is what I did.
These reject discs will ONLY play on the older style of laserDisc player
that uses a laser tube.
Under Hood 3800 Supercharged V6 in '98 Buick Riviera
Captured this video under the hood while driving my Riviera. Always
wondered how the belts and tensioners were acting at high RPM. Before
anyone asks - no, the car isn't in need of new engine mounts. Front and
rear mounts have been replaced recently with resin-filled versions. What
you're seeing is the result of 370 lb-ft of torque being multiplied and
sent to the wheels in 1st gear. Inside the car if feels like the engine is
hard-mounted to the chassis! Not quite, but firm enough for a daily driver.

1995 Buick Riviera Transmission swap pt. 1
Swapping the tranny in the Riv I just bought. The subframe is a 1 piece
deal so I am going to pull the engine out of the top, instead of dropping
it like I normally would. I also have to change a few things, water
pump, and put a new rattler coupler in the blower.
1997 Buick Riviera Supercharged
I have had my Riviera now for 6 years, by far one of the best cars that I
have owned. Stylish, comfort, and has the sleek looks...along with the 3800
engine and Supercharger.
Buick Riviera Two tons of steel
Official 1973 Buick Riviera promotion movie, mixed with images and movie
clips of Dutch Buick Rivieras. Title of the song is "Two tons of steel",

a digital version, and edited by Rob with the music and other footage.
1952 Buick Riviera Super 8 Detailed Interior/Exterior Tour w/ Engine Details
In this video I give a full in depth tour of a 1952 Buick Riviera Super 8.
I take viewers on a close look through the interior and exterior of this
car while showing details, over viewing of features, and noting unique
styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine and the details
of it, This car was in it's original found condition and was such a treat
to be able to check out. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to
give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
1991 Buick Riviera 3.8 liter V6
I purchased this car from a couple who wanted to downsize so they could
travel in their RV. At the time of purchase the grille was busted from a
run-a-way shopping cart & after a lenghty search for the correct grille, I
replaced it. The only issue the car has is a power antenna that doesn't
stop running so until I replace it I've simply pulled the fuse.
1984 Buick Riviera Convertible
For you Buick Riviera fans....I'm sure you wanted to see a convertible
version..offered from 1982 through 1985 by American Sunroof Corporation.
My guess is they were shipped there for final assembly, typical of how
convertible Mustangs were
produced prior to 2005. A nice example!
