More power and more luxury adds up to a more comfortable and confident ride, which is what the 2000 Buick Park Avenue Ultra promises over the base model. The full-size high-end sedan is powered by a supercharged 3.8-liter V6 that hits 240-hp with a 4-speed automatic. In addition to standard ABS brakes, dual front-side airbags, traction control, rain-sensing wipers, and a tire monitor, the 2000 Park Avenue Ultra gets StabiliTrak standard this year.
For luxury, look no further than the standard leather seats, power front seats with driver's memory, dual-zone climate control, a trip computer, security system, wheel-mounted audio controls for the CD player, remote entry, heated seats and mirrors, and auto-dimming mirrors. A Gran Touring package adds a stiffer suspension and rear stabilizer bar. Other options include a sunroof, CD changer, a head-up display, and OnStar, which is new this year for the 2000 Park Avenue Ultra. Drivers like the power of the Ultra, which complements its effortless handling, and they like its great highway mileage, though city mileage does suffer somewhat due to the car's size. The interior is spacious and the 19 cubic foot trunk large, and comfort is ideal for long trips.
