The well-known company Buick and its model Excelle seem to follow the tradition and the long history they have had in the Chinese market. This luxury sedan is going to hit the market as a 2018 model known as Buick Excelle GT. It has been present in the market since 2003. and it is now coming as a completely redesigned version under GM’s Buick brand.
As we have already mentioned, the new 2018 Buick Excelle GT is going to appear as a completely redesigned version of this model. The spy photos could catch the camouflaged vehicle only, so it is a bit hard to say what you can expect when it comes to exterior. However, it has been said that the new Excelle GT is going to share its Delta II platform with the Buick Verano. The year 2015 revealed us the previous version of this model, but now the Buick has been preparing some minor exterior upgrades and changes. For instance, it appears wider than the previous model due to its sporty and aggressive front bumper. It also seems longer and it has a longer wheelbase. It will also get a refreshed grille and redesigned headlights with the LED daytime running lamps. The new Excelle GT will also be available in several new exterior paint colors.
According to the spy photos we have seen, the interior of the new 2018 Buick Excelle GT has still been a mystery. You can probably hope for the premium-quality materials inside the redesigned cabin. Also, since this vehicle will have larger proportions and longer wheelbase, we can probably expect lots of space and more comfort for the passengers. It will probably get a reworked and modern dashboard with a center console and a large LCD screen in the middle. Being a 2018 model, the new Buick Excelle GT will certainly offer a touch screen with the latest infotainment system as well and the hi-tech and connectivity options we have all been waiting for.
Under the hood of the new 2018 Excelle GT, you should probably expect more than one option. For example, it has been said that the base version will come with a 1.5-liter engine and 113 horsepower. The other version is said to offer a 1.4-liter turbo with seven-speed dual-clutch transmission only. Another possible and rumored option includes the improved 2.0-liter turbo engine that will be able to deliver 259 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. Such a version will come with an all-wheel-drive system and a six-speed automatic transmission.
