Great designs and engineering has kept the Buick tradition alive. Each and every decade has shown the continuous change Buick has done to keep up with the changing times. This is apparent in their bumpers as well. Buick bumpers have changed a lot from before. They contribute to the whole image of the car and are an integral part of the Buick vehicle. Before, Buick vehicles were made out of big shiny metal, when two Buick Bumpers collide, you'll know that a loud bang will be heard. You can drive a vehicle then without a bumper because the are not integrated to the car itself. It doesn't disrupt the flows of the lines but is a whole lot better if you have them. Today, Buick bumpers are essential, they are incorporated in the whole design and the over all aesthetics of the vehicle.
Buick bumpers are installed on the front and rear of the car. Buick bumpers are produced into specific shapes to follow the lines of the fascia and are placed there in order to absorb force produced in case of a collision. In the event of an impact, the bumper absorbs some of the blow, which decreases the potential damage to the vehicle and its occupants. The bumper is attached to the car's chassis with a particular impact absorber. These shock absorbers are most frequently spring loaded. In slow speed collisions, this allows the bumper to condense, and then expand back to its original position, lessening apparent damage.
