I think there is a typo above the 2.5 was a carryover power plant and the 2.0 Turbo was upped in torque as well as 6 to 9 speed. We also purchased a 2018 Premium, all the stars aligned with the pricing, trade, options and dealer so we saw no reason to wait. There are subtle styling differences and of course the bump in torque and 3 additional speeds. However, we did not believe that the cost differential would be worth the wait. We too are very impressed with the fit and finish. Obviously the individuals who assembled the car took pride in their work and I believe GM invested the necessary dollars in the manufacture and workforce training. Clearly they are intending to keep Buick as a top brand as they rebuild it here.
