Buick reveals 2015 Envision midsize crossover for China

Buick was rumored to be preparing an all-new midsize crossover for China, their most proficient market and recently, the new Envision was revealed.

Due to go on sale in China later this year, the new Envision will sit in between the Encore and the Enclave. Additionally, the styling heavily mimics that of the current Enclave and Encore, including a prominent chrome grille, a curvaceous presence, and HID headlights with LED daytime running lights. Lots of chrome, such as around the windscreen frame, roof-rails, and on the 19-inch aluminum wheels complement the look.

There’s no word of a US-bound version yet, though power is said to be supplied by a 2.0L turbocharged four-banger good for 256bhp and 260 lb-ft of twist mated to a six-speed auto and all-wheel drive.

Shanghai GM Offers Preview of New Envision

High-end midsize SUV goes on sale across China later this year

SHANGHAI – Shanghai GM yesterday offered a preview of the all-new Envision, announcing its Chinese name as “Ang Ke Wei” (???), showing its specifications and the first official photos. The new high-end midsize SUV will go on sale across China later this year.

The Envision is a completely new model that represents a convergence of Buick’s latest global design philosophy and cutting-edge technologies. It will set a new benchmark in its segment in China for styling, space, safety, performance and technology.

Elegant and Dynamic Exterior

The model carries forward the design essence of the Buick Envision concept vehicle, which made its global debut at Auto Shanghai 2011.

The exterior blends artistic elegance with dynamic lines. Its front end is highlighted by Buick’s signature waterfall grille along with wing-style intelligent xenon headlamps, boomerang-shaped LED daytime running lights and sleek outside rearview mirrors. The windshield with a one-piece chrome-plated frame gives the Envision an aggressive stance. Class-leading 19-inch aluminum alloy wheels and a luggage rack echo the stylish design.

The Envision measures 4,667 mm in length, 1,839 mm in width and 1,696 mm in height. It has a wheelbase of 2,750 mm, which contributes to its spacious interior.

Powerful Turbocharged Engine

Another highlight of the Envision is its 2.0T direct injection turbocharged engine, which was named one of Ward’s 10 Best Engines in 2013. The engine generates maximum output power of 191 kW and peak torque of 353 Nm. It includes stop/start technology, for better fuel economy.

A new-generation six-speed transmission offers smooth gear shifting while significantly reducing fuel consumption in city driving. Its all-wheel-drive technology ensures solid handling on all surfaces.

The Envision will complement the Encore and new Enclave in Buick’s domestic SUV portfolio, providing a range of choices for SUV buyers across China.
