Expect Buick Envision in America in 2016

Buick is going to take its Envision midsize crossover to America. The sales are planned to begin in the second part of the next year.

The model will take its place in the range right between the Enclave and Buick Encore. It is possible to say that the external dimensions of the vehicle are the same as of the Chevy Equinox. It will become a rival to other high-end midsize crossovers.

The Envision rides with a 2.0-litre turbocharged V4 engine in China. It is able to generate 256 hp and torque of 260 lb-ft.

Speaking about other crossovers of the automaker, it must be mentioned that the small Encore compact crossover waits to be restyled in four years. It also can change its engine into the 2.0-litre turbo unit. As to the large Enclave, it will be completely new in two years. This car will adopt a new platform which is significantly lighter. The Chevy Traverse is said to ride on the identical platform.

Buick will also present the Cascada convertible. Expect it at the North American market in the first quarter of 2016.

Moreover, the Regal is going to be restyled by the middle of 2017. The producer wants to distinguish it from the smaller Verano more. This model is set to be equipped with a small 1.5-litre turbo engine for its base option.

The 2017th will also please us with a new LaCrosse. It will have the same platform which was used for the new Chevy Impala.
