The Riviera S came with a standard Turbocharged engine. Introduced in 1979, the S-Type would remain mostly unchanged. It was named Motor Trend car of the year in 1979 as the Riviera was downsized. This would also be the final year for the S-Type badge. A sporty T-Type would be introduced across the Buick lineup as the sporty image trim level.
