Earlier this month, GM Authority brought you the very first interior photos of the upcoming Buick Enspire. The standout feature in those disguised shots was a rather large multimedia screen that was angled toward the driver. Since then, GMA has dug deeper to find out more details about with the cabin, enabling us to find specific details about the cabin.
Sources familiar with the Buick Enspire product program told GMA that the upcoming Buick Enspire will feature a center infotainment screen measuring 10.2 inches diagonally. In addition, the future Buick crossover will feature an analog speedometer and tachometer flanking a digital center screen as standard equipment.
This analog speedo and tach configuration is what we saw in the aforementioned spy shots earlier this month. However, Buick will also offer a fully-digital instrument panel / gauge cluster as an option on the Enspire.
This means that the Buick Enspire will become the first Buick model to offer a fully-digital gauge cluster. In addition, the Enspire will also have the largest center screen of all Buick models. In fact, the Enspire will have a larger center display than its E2 platform mate – the Cadillac XT4, which utilizes an 8-inch diagonal center screen. Only the Chevrolet Bolt EV and Cadillac CT5 will tie the Buick Enspire when it comes to the size of the center display, with all three models featuring a 10.2-inch screen.
|Buick Enspire||Chevrolet Bolt EV||Cadillac XT4||Cadillac CT5|
|Base gauge cluster:||Analog speedo & tach with 8” display||Fully digital 8”||Analog speedo & tach with 4.2” display||Analog speedo & tach with 4.2” display|
|Optional gauge cluster:||Fully digital||Same as base||Analog speedo & tach with 8” display||Analog speedo & tach with 8” display|
The Buick Enspire will be positioned between the Buick Envision and upcoming baby Buick Enclave (in China) and Buick Enclave (in North America). It will be similar in size to its platform mate, the Cadillac XT4. It’s worth noting that the Enspire will be a more premium offering than the Envision, despite the two models having similar dimensions.
We expect the Buick Enspire to be revealed some time in 2020 and go on sale in the second half of the year as a 2021 model year vehicle. The model is expected to be sold in both North America and China.
