Buick has yet again come up with a new crossover automobile model. A brand new 2016 Buick Anthem is the new addition to Buick’s range of mid-sized SUVs. It has been reported that Buick is trying to design this new 2016 model of Anthem by drawing inspiration from the concept models of its previous generation cars, namely Enclave and the Encore.
However, the design apparatus of this car will be slightly different, and in no way similar to those two cars – it has been designed to be smaller than 3 row seated Buick Enclave and definitely larger than the present generation Buick Encore. This model of 2016 Anthem will offer stiff competition to similar SUV cars like Nissan Murano and Kia Sorento in the automobile market. Now, let’s take a look at the various important specs that make this car so desirable among the masses.
2016 Buick Anthem Engine Specs
Engine options for this new model will be quite good. Even though Buick is not really commenting much about those current engine models that will be included in this version, but credible sources report that multiple engine modules will be available. This new and improved 2016 Buick Anthem will probably be powered by a 2.5 LITER or another 2.0 LITER turbocharged four cylinder engine, giving over 195 HP and 187 lbs. feet of torque. There is a possibility of a new 3.6 LITER V6 cylinder version as well and a future hybrid model, featuring an additional Lithium ion battery and an electric motor. The car has mode selection for off road driving and giving power to all four wheels.
