I'm sure the Buick Envision will do fine as long as it scores very well in the safety tests. I think one of the previous hurdles they failed was the safety test, one model from China scored around a 2 out of 5 in the NCAP.
I'm not convinced that this will be a big deal though. Auto journalists may spend some time discussing it, but the average car buyer doesn't really care where their car comes from, nor do they even care to enquire about where it is produced. Instead, they associate brands with America. "Ford? Must be American."According to The Wall Street Journal, GM officials have said that this decision was made as a way to “fill a gap in the brand’s product line.” While this could be the case, their plan was made public only weeks after the union contract agreement. Whether this move was just bad timing or GM’s response to the new contract, there’s a big chance that this could bring bad PR to the company in the near future.
I wouldn't put anything past the Trump, but unless he decides to bring particular attention to this issue, I just don't think the average car buyer will really take notice.Republican presidential candidate and billionaire Donald Trump threatened Ford Motor Co. with punitive taxes if the Dearborn automaker proceeds with a new $2.5 billion Mexican plant that will “take away thousands” of U.S. jobs.
What about it being imported from China bothers you ??Purchased a 2017 Envision, but being imported from China does bother me somewhat.
Just didn't want to wait until the 2018 redesigned Terrain hit the market.
Envision is a great vehicle hopefully in the future GM starts to make them domestically.
