buick envision spied on the eve of its debut

Right before its debut at the Chengdu Auto Show, the Buick Envision was spied outside an exhibit hall as it prepares to make its debut in China, a crucial market that is hungry for both crossovers and Buick brand vehicles.

Although the Envision is almost certain to make its way to North America, GM has made no formal announcement of its arrival. Reports indicate that a Q2 2015 launch is likely, with the GM 2.5L 4-cylinder joining alongside the corporate 2.0T engine powering the Chinese version.

    "Although the Envision is almost certain to make its way to North America..." Do we really need another friggin' CUV? Sheeesh!

    Aside from the taillights and the rear chrome strip, looks good (tho probably would look even better with the Opel grill). Should be a big hit for Buick. The FWD-based compact luxury segment is quickly filling up. Previously just the RDX and Q5, but now have the MKC, NX and soon this. Buick in the near future will be better off than Cadillac since they will 3 CUVs to 1 for Cadillac.

  • Statikboy Those tires are the Wrong Size.
  • Mustangfast I had an 06 V6 and loved that car. 230k trouble free miles until I sold it. I remember they were criticized for being too small vs competitors but as a single guy it was the right size for me. I recall the 2.3 didn’t have a reputation for reliability, unlike the V6 and I4. I think it likely didn’t take off due to the manual-only spec, price tag, and power vs the V6 engine and the way it delivered that power. It was always fun to see the difference between these and normal ones, since these were made in Japan whereas all others were flat rock
