    Buick Envision completely undisguised prior to official reveal

    This needs to come stateside ASAP. Put some really nice rims on this car, change the color to Black or dark grey metallic, it would look better than most of it's intended rivals imo.

    Looks like it should have been here for a few years.

    Amazing how the China Buicks get color badges and we don't!

    GM has a thing for those headlights that stretch up the hood.

    Re: Buick Envision completely undisguised prior to official reveal

    Hmmm I have been considering an Encore... I wonder if this will stay in the price bracket/range shown in article 25K-35K is right in maybe slightly higher than an Encore, if I could get one with the sporty wheels and a few less features and 2.0T and FWD in pearl white for 30K I would be really interested - I would even give up "leather" that I would get in an Encore. Wonder when it will hit the states?

    It looks very nice. Can't wait to see what the Equinox looks like.

    Looks very generic and Hyundai like. No wonder GM is running those commercials where nobody can tell what a Buick looks like. In the ad, everybody is stumped trying to find the Buick in a parking garage, on a street, or in the neighbor's driveway. This car is further explanation of why that is happening.

    A beautiful looking CUV, can someone remind me again why China is getting this vehicle and North America isn't? This would sell very well here, in fact my wife saw it and said she wants one.

    I kinda agree with you actually. While I think it looks 'above average', the Buick design language is becoming a bit old and lost in the shuffle. There doesnt' really seem to be anything distinct about it. Kinda has the look along the lines of a 'nice' Toyota or Hyudai product, not a near luxury vehicle.

    The stick-on portholes are there but no hint of a sweep-spear. Looks very familiar and Hyundai-like. It's attractive enough but in a very "beige" Asian sort of way. Honestly, I love cars and if I was a valet and had to go find this Buick, I'd be hitting the remote to flash the lights too.

    That's not necessarily a bad thing because dull sells. Toyota proves it year after year.

    I think it looks great! Buick has been missing a CUV this size for a long time (since the Rainier).

    Yeah, and if anybody ever notices what they tend to do after a few years. Harsh climates like here in the sun soaked desert southwest tend to rot the plastic out and not long they're all faded and ugly. Which is why I'm not too fond of them either, even if they do look ok.

    They sure have and I hope they don't drag their heels in getting it over here too. The size of this isn't too bad, and I also am one who really likes it.

    I have long been bemused by these tall station wagons and little interested in them. They do sell well and are important to GM's business, so I have lessened my criticism. De gustibus non disputandum.
    I wouldn't just put on different rims. I'd put on the entire wheels.

    I like it too but I was hoping for a bigger vehicle, this thing is more MKC-sized than Rainier-sized unfortunately

    Wheelbase/length/width/height

    Lincoln MKC ... 105.9 / 179.2 / 73.4 / 65.2 (Car and Driver)
    Envision ... 108.26 / 183.7 / 72.4 / 66.77 (GM authority)
    Rainier ... 113.0 / 193.4 / 75.4 / 74.5 (Wikipedia)
