The 2015 Buick Anthem is the obvious name for Buick’s next SUV. It has actually been snooped many times, but just recent reports have actually fixed it with a name. It is rumored to provide a turbocharged four-cylinder engine and it will only be available in the U.S. and China.
Buick is dealing with a brand-new crossover developed to squeeze in between its compact Encore and larger Enclave. The car is suggestioned to be called the Anthem and was previewed in 2011 by the Buick Envision concept.
Today we have our very first spy tries of a prototype for the brand-new crossover, which we expect to be released on the market in the second fifty percent of next year, as a 2015 version. It will certainly compete versus various other little crossovers in the premium section such as the Acura RDX, Infiniti Ex Lover and upcoming Lexus NX.
We understand this prototype is for a Buick by the trademark falls grille that could be seen through the camouflage equipment. As for the rest of the design, Buick’s Envision concept provides an extremely stylized sneak peek. Some styling hints will also likely be obtained from Buick’s extremely successful Enclave.

Underpinning the car will certainly be a revamped version of General Motors’ Delta II platform, perhaps dubbed D2XX. This new system will change both the Delta II vehicle and Theta crossover systems in the General Motors Company [NYSE: GM] portfolio.
D2XX will certainly give rise to everything from hatchbacks to crossovers and will showcase in next-generation versions of the Chevrolet Volt and Cadillac ELR extended-range electric autos, along with in the following Buick Verano, Chevrolet Cruze, Chevrolet Equinox, GMC Terrain and Opel Astra. And we can now add this Buick crossover to that list.
When it comes to engines, anticipate similar providings to that located in the Verano. That suggests a base 2.4-liter unit and a more potent 2.0-liter turbo. An electrified version, possibly with plug-in hybrid innovation, may also be offered.
Note, Buick’s new crossover isn’t expected to be a North American special; it should also be marketed in China, Buick’s most significant market, and an Opel-badged variation is most likely to be introduced in Europe.
2015 Buick Anthem System
The Anthem will certainly ride atop a new GM international system that will certainly underpin the next-generation Equinox as well as the GMC Terrain. The upgraded Equinox/Terrain are expected to diminish a little, so anticipate the Anthem to share the slimmer proportions compared to GM’s existing midsize SUVs.
Power will likely originate from a 2.5-liter four-cylinder or a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, the last making 259 horse power and 295 pound-feet of torque, both delivered via a six-speed automatic transmission. A 3.6-liter V6 is expected to be supplied as well, together with optional four-wheel drive. There is also broach a plug-in hybrid model, a not-fantastical concept thinking about that the next Chevy Volt is expected to be developed off the same new system.
