The highly-anticipated compact crossover from Buick, the Enspire, will be powered by a turbo-charged engine rated at 237 horsepower. The 2.0-liter I-4 LSY engine will be mated to a GM nine-speed automatic transmission. The powertrain, which offers standard front wheel-drive and available all-wheel-drive, also boasts a rating of 258 lb-ft of torque.

The prospective powertrain in the Buick Enspire, which is the same offered in the Cadillac XT4, will have some serious get-up-and-go. According to GM Authority writer Alex Luft, it needs merely 7.7 seconds to reach 60 miles per hour.

Enspire exterior details

Luft reports, “The all-new Buick Enspire will measure in at 182.3 inches in length, 74.1 inches in width, and 63.9 inches in height. The wheelbase is 109.4 inches long — identical to its corporate platform mate — the Cadillac XT4.”

The Buick Enspire is positioned between the Buick Envision and the Buick Enclave in the Buick lineup.

“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,” according to Luft.

Enspire interior details

The interior of the Buick Enspire promises some large tech — a 10.2-inch diagonal center infotainment screen, reports Luft. A completely digital gauge cluster will be available on the crossover, a history-making feature.

“This means that the Buick Enspire will become the first Buick model to offer a fully-digital gauge cluster,” Luft reports. “In addition, the Enspire will also have the largest center screen of all Buick models.”
