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.

  • Wolfwagen If there is no Rust or rot this would be a good buy when MB craftsmanship and engineering meant something. While I prefer the 500 or 560 for the larger engine, this is good
  • Wolfwagen Tim, Now you should ask the B&B who we want to succeed and why. You could limit it to EV or non- North American MFGs.
  • TCowner I consider it mandatory for the navigation purpose - using a phone in a Weathertech cupholder in my old Town Car just doesn't compare. However, I don't use it for anything else (i.e. music, etc) and don't find that important.
