    It has a nice stance, even if the front overhang is a bit long. I like the wheels.

    I also don't understand where this slots in?

    Encore
    Encore GX
    Envision
    Enspire
    Enclave

    Do I have that right?

    It has a nice shape. The lines look elegant, even under all the camo.

    I believe it's smaller than Envision, bigger than the Encores.

    The long, horizontal hood makes it look like a station wagon. That won't do.

    Looks odd at the cowl intakes.

    The wheels are from the XT4, They'll probably call it Envasion Gx...

    Looks a bit like the smaller new Encore. How does this fit in with the Regal TourX?

    According to the other GM site—the one that’s an Authority—you’ve got it right. It slots between Envision (which may go away) and Enclave.
    Current ride: 2015 Chevy Sonic 1.8L 5sp manual sedan
    Previous ride: 1998 Subaru Legacy Wagon AWD 2.2L 5sp manual
    Next ride: Maybe a 2020 2.0T CT4, weekend car, keep the Sonic as DD

    Buick has the power to be beautiful and have aspirational automobiles but much to their disadvantage (like Cadillac) GM corporate exists.

    Is there a real reason for this vehicle when they can't even move Envision off lots?

    Re: Buick Enspire spied

    I'm sure it'll sell, but does the world need yet another mid sized crossover?
    1968 Buick Skylark (Buick 350/4)
    1972 Chevrolet Corvette (350 LT-1)
    2001 Chevrolet Tahoe LS (5.3 liter)
    1983 Chevrolet C/10 Silverado (350 Goodwrench)

    Former: 1989 GMC Suburban R1500 (5.7 liter)
    1969 Buick Skylark Custom (Buick 350/2)
    1971 Buick Riviera (Buick 455)
    1971 Buick Electra 225 (Buick 455)

    Without Buick, GM never would have existed.

    I'm with you, I don't get how this slots in. Maybe it's a sign the Envision isn't long for this market, especially with the tariff issues now?

    I think its wheelbase is several inches shorter than Envision's.
