The Park Avenue ’s GPS navigation
system contains road information for more than 300 cities in
China . The Bluetooth mobile phone system is also available.
Like all Buick products, the Park
Avenue offers a high level of safety and peace of mind. It is
equipped with the GM Local Area Network (GM-LAN) high-speed
communication system, which is based on the top-of-the-line
32-bit 500 kb/second engine control system. With a signal
transmission speed approaching real-time, information flow from
various sensors is instantaneous, enhancing efficiency and
safety. Further enhancing safety are six intelligent air bags
for the driver and passengers.
The Park Avenue is powered by GM’s
smooth yet powerful AlloyTec V-6 engine, which accelerates from
0 to 100 km/h in 7.8 seconds. The engine control unit features
the latest Bosch E77 32-bit ECM processor. With the Remote
Engine Start (RES) function, the driver can start the engine up
to 20 minutes in advance within 60 meters distance. The RES
function also can adjust the temperature inside the car.
Customers have a choice of two engine
displacements. The Park Avenue ’s 3.6-liter engine generates
