Buick recently released a teaser for a crossover destined for their most crucial market in the world: China.
The new crossover is expected to be a midsize model that will sit in between the Encore and the full-size Enclave. It’s set to be revealed later this year and will sport the name, Envision.
Not much is known, but there is speculation that the new Envision crossover should find its way onto our shores not too long afterwards, especially since Buick only offers the compact Encore and larger Enclave with no compromise in between.
