The all-rumored Buick Envision in the United States have been confirmed to arrive on the local market, starting next summer.
The news was confirmed by Buick GMC US Vice President Duncan Aldred, which also stated that the model would also arrive on the Chinese market.
Aldred also told Automotive News that the Envision crossover will be the “class-leading vehicle in the heart of the US auto industry”, the CEO also praising the model as being the direct rival of the new Audi Q5.
In the US, the Buick Envision will come with a 2.0-liter turbocharged flat-four engine, with 252 horsepower, hooked to a six-speed automatic, which sends the power to all four corners.
In China, the new Envision will pack a 1.5-liter engine, with 166 horsepower and 250 Nm of torque, sending the power to the front wheels.
The details list is rather scarce at the moment, the CEO revealing just a bunch of features that the Buick Envision will be coming with, such as automatic park assist, heated rear seats or a 360 degree panoramic camera.
In terms of pricing, the Buick Envision is rumored to come from around $30,000-$35,000, making it close to its direct competitor from the local market, the Acura RDX.
