General Motors is actively developing a series of all-new mid-sized crossovers, GM Authority has learned from sources familiar with the project.
While we were unable to pin down the actual platform that these vehicles will utilize at the time of this writing, we do know that they will be available in 2-wheel-drive and 4WD/AWD configurations. However, the platform will provide for “superb ride and handling” characteristics and the vehicles will “stun the industry” in terms of exterior styling.
Moreover, exterior design for the new crossovers, which will be available in Buick, Chevy, and GMC flavors, has been completed and approved and is said to be “unmatched”. Those set against badge engineering (as they rightfully should be) shouldn’t fret, however, as the vehicles will display “huge amounts of differentiation” and will be “how platform sharing success is measured in the industry” going forward. The vehicles are said to be available on a global scale.
The Buick variant of the crossovers will be shown first at a major auto show in the “near future” and will most likely wear the Envision nameplate. Considering that a refreshed Enclave is going to be revealed in New York in a few short weeks, we’re expecting it to be unveiled during the next auto show season this fall. Stay tuned to GM Authority for the latest GM News and as we learn more.
