Default Buick Enspire concept

Only a teaser pic of a concept, but it's more visually interesting than anything Buick has going on now....

Interesting, wonder if some Opel design elements are still present on the concept.

Interesting name.

Was it used intentionally for the meaning "breathing life into" or is it just a terrible misspelling of "inspire"...enquiring minds want to know.

I'd have gone with Enslave or Endive, personally.

Endive would have been my choice too.

Its hard for a high end model of anything to be taken seriously when its name comes across as a misspelling. The Bentayga, silly as it is remains a fabricated word, at least.

This is GM, nothing to be taken seriously here anyway.

Buick Empire would have been pretty cool.

The Evoque has probably done decently....

I would go w/ "Enmeshed." Or "Entombed."

this reminds me of a commercial where the woman says her friend definitely has to use the French pronunciation

I'd say the design of the hatch looks like a natural progression of the currnet Astra (Chinese Buick Excelle GT)'s hatch, but otherwise I think this is now pretty much a stand alone GM vehicle. Given that up until 6 month ago every new Buick was basically an Opel as well, it would be weird to abandon the design language completely, esp. given it was also pretty much inline with most GM designs, I guess if anything Opel will probably be influenced by PSA sooner or later any evolve their language.

It has but reflects more effort than changing the leading letter just to match the rest of Buick's SUVs.

The teaser image reflects something that could be quite nice. The Enclave itselve (see, no misspelled word) has done very well but really resembles a minivan, bloated an inelegant, unlike most other vehicles in this segment, at least it seems to have a ton of interior room in counter.

Enflict
Ensipid

I'd have gone with some legacy names: Invicta and Riviera come to mind.
