Buick, which has reinvented itself over recent years—introducing the rebadged Opel Cascada and its first convertible in decades—is stretching its vision for its lineup even further. Squeezing in a new sedan between the Encore and Enclave, the Chinese-made Buick Envision SUV will be arriving on American soil next summer.
While the automaker predicts most of the model will be purchased by Chinese drivers in the Eastern market, some units will be available for purchase in the United States. The Envision will be part of a joint GM-China venture and will be constructed in Yantai.
If you’re concerned that “made in China” means cheap, bare-minimum production standards, there’s no need to fret. Buick affirms that the Envision will meet all its high safety standards that make the brand as respected as it is.
Plus, the Envision was designed in Michigan, so it’s certain to appeal to American car buyers. The only reason it’s being constructed overseas and imported is purely logistics. When it arrives, be sure to check back with Varney Buick GMC for more information.
