Previewed by the Envision concept, the production model has a familiar front fascia with a large waterfall grille that is flanked by LED-infused headlights.

The model will slot between the Encore and Enclave and it promises to "set a new benchmark in terms of space, safety, performance and specifications."

The company declined to go into specifics but they confirmed the crossover will use a "new-generation powertrain" with start/stop technology. Buick also hinted a new all-wheel-drive technology but declined to elaborate.
