Buick Envision Coming to Oklahoma in 2016

Adele's new hit song, "Hello" has garnered popularity across the states; claiming the #1 spot on numerous American music charts. As the pop song continues to climb the charts, Americans are also saying hello to CUVs - crossover utility vehicles. Sales for subcompact crossovers are increasing across the board. Buick, American's oldest active automobile maker, is attracting many of these new CUV customers with their lineup of beautiful sculpted, luxurious crossovers. 

Buick's current crossover lineup - the Buick Enclave and Buick Encore - represent 60% of Buick sales in North America. The CUV craze hasn't skipped over Oklahoma. Here at our Tulsa Metro dealership, our new Buick crossover sales represented over 70% of our new Buick sales in 2015. Buick looks to reinforce their dominance in the SUV and CUV market with the introduction of the Buick Envision.

Although the Buick Envision will be a new CUV offered in America, it's not a brand new model for Buick. The Buick Envision has been in sell in China since 2014. It was awarded Motor Trend SUV of the Year in China and has accumulated nearly 130,000 sales so far this year. Thankfully, Buick will soon be bringing the Buick Envision to American soil. 

With an overall length of 183.7 inches and an overall height of 66.8 inches, the Buick Envision is perfectly slatted between the Buick Enclave and Buick Encore. Buick has already begun preparations for its release in the United States. The Buick Envision was designed, engineered and tested in Michigan as a world-class luxury crossover. 

Both the Buick Encore and Buick Enclave are award winning crossovers. They both won Kelley Blue Book's '5-Year Cost to Own Award' - the Encore in the Luxury Compact SUV/Crossover category and the Enclave in the luxury Full-Size SUV/Crossover category. And, the vehicles are winning the hearts of our Tulsa area shoppers. One recent Ferguson Buick GMC customer, Deborah had the following to say about her new Buick Encore, "I bought a 2015 Buick Encore and love it!" Another Ferguson Buick GMC customer, Terry, recently purchased a new Buick Enclave and exclaimed, "I Absolutely love my new 2015 Buick Enclave. Ferguson delivered! They stepped up on pricing and service. Ferguson Buick GMC is worthy of repeat business." 

With the success we've seen of the Encore and Enclave, we expect the new Buick Envision to quickly become a hot seller here in Oklahoma. We're excited to bring the new Buick Envision to Oklahoma! The Buick Envision is expected to arrive at our Broken Arrow dealership next summer - summer 2016.
