When it is about popularity, Buick is of the fastest growing divisions of General Motors. In past few years, this brand became very popular in some foreign countries such as China. Company now has plans to make this brand popular once again in North America. In that order, we will see some new models. One of those will be new crossover, which will stand between Encore and Enclave models. This model is expected to come by the end of year and it will come as 2016 Buick Anthem.
2016 Buick Anthem redesign
The 2016 Buick Anthem will be an all-new model. When it is about design, this new crossover will be very similar as model that is exclusively offered for the Chinese market, called Envision. This model came in 2014 and company now has plans to offer similar model for the markets like United States, Canada or Mexico. New model will share most of the characteristics with Envision. Expect to see same platform, very similar look, both inside and outside etc. However, we also expect to see some modification, which will make 2016 Anthem more appropriate to the North American drivers. In that order, we expect to see some modifications such as more rugged design, bigger wheels, sharper lines etc.
However, most of the changes are expected inside. We expect that this model will be more luxurious compared to Envision. The 2016 Buick Anthem will come with better features, both in terms of entertainment and drive-assist system. We also expect to see better-quality materials like leather upholstery, soft-touch materials etc.
2016 Buick Anthem engine
Although exact engines for 2016 Buick Anthem are still unknown, we expect that company will rely on GM’s proven variants. We expect to see similar palette of engines as for Chevrolet Equinox for example. The engines that will most likely power new crossover are 2.5 liter and 2.0 liter EcoTec four cylinder units. Both engines will be paired with 6-speed automatic transmission. Beside these engines, 2016 will probably come in some V6 variant too, which will be reserved for those powerful variants.

According to the rumors, 2016 Buick Anthem will come by the end of year. When it is about price, there is still no reliable information on the internet. However, most of the reports says that new model will go around 40.000 dollars.
