Buick is stepping into the limelight with a wealth of new models, including several crossovers and plans to launch its first all-electric model next year. Buick also says it’s going full EV by 2030. Naturally, all these new vehicles will need fresh design ideas, and now, we’re taking a look at exactly that with the following rugged Buick crossover sketch.
Coming to us from the official GM Design Instagram feed (@generalmotorsdesign), this Buick crossover sketch was created by GM designer Geoffrey Richmond, and includes a number of interesting details worth examining. From the off, this concept appears to take inspiration from the Buick Wildcat EV Concept that debuted last year, with a curving front fascia highlighted by slim styling elements. A pair of sharp upper styling elements punctuate the hoodline, visually connecting to some lower light elements that bookend either end of the fascia. The grille is rectangular in shape, and appears to incorporate a geometric pattern for the insert, plus a chrome styling element along the upper edge.
The profile of this Buick concept reveals a tall, upright stance that underlines the concept’s utilitarian focus. The wheels are the traditional oversized alloys expected of a concept vehicle, although the rubber looks to be somewhat chunky, possibly even lending the concept a more rugged design.
The top of the vehicle is finished in black, while the lower body panels are finished in dark fuchsia, creating a two-tone appearance that enhances the Buick’s tall stance even further. The sideview mirrors are ultra-thin and finished in white.

While there’s no indication what this vehicle is supposed to be, perhaps we’ll see elements of the design in the 2025 Buick Enclave, set to introduce an all-new third-generation for the crossover nameplate. When it debuts, the 2025 Buick Enclave will present a full-size, five-door crossover design, as GM Authority covered previously. Under the body panels, the 2025 Buick Enclave is expected to ride on the long-wheelbase variant of the GM C1 platform.
