TAMPA, FL, June 16, 2015 /24-7PressRelease/ -- General Motors has launched a new 2016 model-version of its Buick Envision mid-size crossover SUV in China known as the 20T. The vehicle will be available with the brand's intelligent all-wheel drive system and will feature a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. (1)
The introduction of the new Buick Envision-variant to the Chinese market comes only months after the 28T went on sale in October of 2014. The 20T differs from the original model in that it comes equipped with a smaller turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The 1.5T SIDI, rated at 166 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque, is the carmaker's most potent unit in the EcoTec family, according to Carscoops. (2)
In addition, GM Authority says the engine includes direct injection, a "patented quiet inverted-tooth camshaft drive chain," fuel-saving start-stop technology and will be paired to a new seven-speed DSG automatic transmission. (1) Buick's new Envision SUV also offers good fuel economy so as to comply with China's National V emission standard and comes available with both front- and all-wheel drive. (2)
Inside the vehicle, features like a panoramic sunroof, QuietTuning technology and dual-zone climate control. The vehicle also features safety systems, like adaptive cruise control, which automatically adjusts the speed of the SUV so as to maintain a safe distance from the car ahead, are offered. (1)
The automaker's Envision crossover has proven to be a hot seller in China and may arrive in the U.S. sooner than anticipated, as GM Authority caught a glimpse of the model in Michigan not long ago. Details will be available via Ferman Buick GMC in Tampa if and when the vehicle is unveiled in the United States. (1)
