The new Buick SUV will be launched on the Chinese car market just before the end of the year. Price will start around 160.000 yuan and end around 220.000 yuan ($26.000 – 35.500).

The Envision is manufactured in China by the Shanghai-GM joint venture, it based on GM’s Delta global-compact platform. The Buick Envision will be positioned above the China-made Buick Encore SUV and below the Buick Enclave SUV that is currently imported into China.

There will be two petrol engines available, both based on GM’s 2.0 four-cylinder turbocharged petrol. The low-spec variant delivers 200hp and 280nm and the top-spec variant delivers 260hp and 363nm. Transmission is a six-speed automatic.

But that is not all. GM is apparently also working on a 1.5 turbo with about 170hp and on a hybrid variant based around this 1.5 turbo. It is yet unknown when these variants will hit the market.

Size: 4667/1839/1663mm, wheelbase is 2750.
