If you’ve paid close attention to the features and equipment gracing the North American 2016 Buick Envision, you’ll note one glaring omission.
The Chinese-spec 2016 Envision features a FlexRide system, which can tailor the driving experience to the driver’s preferences with Normal, Tour, Sport and Off-Road modes. Buick has confirmed North America will not be receiving said system.
Buick told us the system was less than desired following market research and customer surveys. Instead, Buick invested in other areas of the 2016 Envision for North American adaptation. That includes the HiPer Strut system among other amenities.
Buick will introduce the 2016 Envision through a very short model year, and will likely add additional options and equipment for a proper, full 2017 model year for the Buick Envision.
