2016 Buick Envision Release Date, Interior, Colors, MPG, Specs – Buick has announced that they are releasing a new vehicle that will fill the gap between the Encore and Enclave models. The new car fills the gap that has been left between these two models which was made a while ago. The new car fits in perfectly with the entire fleet of Buick cars that get to be released during the 2016 model year. This one comes to us thanks to the productions of GM China.

Buick has already had a good lineup for the previous years and has produced cars that have been both comfortable and had some pretty good and in some cases spectacular performance specs. But there was something missing as the roster has needed some an essential part to complete its lineup. By missing this crucial detail they have actually lost clients this way as they were not able to offer the fans a vehicle that they certainly desired and needed.

So the new car is being dubbed the Buick Envision and it will be offered for the first time as a 2016 model. The car that breaches the gap between the Encore and Enclave and also offers another option in the midsize SUV level. The car will have a bigger body than the Encore and will feature a completely new design that has been specially designed for this type of a vehicle. It only comes with a single engine offer and the review will help you find out the needed specs and data about the car. The pictures of the Envision also help to get the idea how the car will look.

The inside of the new Envision vehicle has been made to fit the comfort and technological levels that are demanded by the current market. Actually the car envisions the modern look of the inside of the car and includes a lot of upgrades that come fitted inside it. It is actually going to be a class higher than its counterparts and other Buick brethren from the 2016 class. This is due to the Chinese designers who have included the majority of the upgrades that the car now has, but the best thing is the usefulness of the added gadgets.

The interior has some high end inside upgrades. According to the current standards the higher end leather materials to make the comfort levels pretty high. It looks good and it feels even better. With the leather addition the combined interior also has some aluminum, wood and even some carbon fiber accents. This combination is a desirable look for any modern car and the standard Buick setup of the inside makes it even better. This design will help anyone feel comfortable inside during long trips and the infotainment system adds a higher level to the entire atmosphere and level of the car.

Exterior

Speaking about the design of the exterior of the car it is going to have all the needed additions of a luxury midsize SUV. In order to bring all of the needed elements together a combination of the current Buick vehicles was made to fit with the Chinese model that was released previously. The Chinese model is already a luxurious look but the added US highlights conclude the look that the car needs to attract attention.

It is not too flashy nor does it attract too much attention, but that is just it. It does not need to be flashy as it is more of a vehicle that attracts attention with its usefulness and great performance and specs on the road. The grille has been designed similar to the one seen in the Encore car. The headlights have also been taken from this vehicle also so the front part looks like the current Encore car that was also released by Buick for the 2016 model year. At the back there is a single chrome bar fitted on the tailgate. The vehicle’s back also has an updated taillight model which also receives LED technology.

Engine

Despite the fact that a single engine option was announced there have been talks that another option will be added The base option is actually the new 1.5-liter turbocharged inline 4 engine that will be fitted under the hood of the new Buick Envision car. This engine type develops 165 horsepower and 159 lb-ft of torque. This engine option is a mroe fuel efficient type and only comes with a front-wheel drive. The rumors of the second engine type come from the Chinese model which uses the 2.0-liter engine and makes 256 horsepower and 260 lb-ft. This is a much stronger option but has not yet been confirmed if this engine option will make it to the produciton mdoel. We feel that it will be better if the car adds a bit more versatility with the powertrain and offer the fans more choices. It will also enhance the popularity of the car as well. If it comes that this engine becomes usable it is going to come standard with an all-wheel drive and a 6-speed transmission gearbox.

Release date and price

The car is going to be released in the US, Canadian and Chinese markets at the same time. The release date is expected to come at the end of the year or the beginning of the next one the least. Yet the price is going to be fitted for all the markets and the base MSRP somewhere around $30,000  usd, for all of the said markets.
