The North American International Auto Show is less than two weeks away and a new report is indicating Buick will use the event to introduce something new.

Little is known about the mysterious model but The Detroit Free Press is reporting it will be unveiled on January 10th.  The paper goes on to say "don't be shocked to see a production version" of the Avenir concept but that sounds like pure speculation at this point. 

A safer bet would likely be the all-new Enclave or a concept that previews the upcoming model.  Buick has been tight-lipped about the next-generation crossover but we've already seen the 2017 GMC Acadia which is the Enclave's corporate cousin.  The model is expected to ride on an extended version of the Cadillac XT5's platform and feature a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine as well as a 3.6-liter V6.

The mystery model will be shown alongside the 2017 Envision which will go on sale in the United States next summer with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces an estimated 252 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque.  It will be connected to a six-speed automatic transmission and a standard all-wheel drive system.
