According to the spy photographer, this machine may be a little bit smaller on the outside than the current <a href="http://autoblog.com/chevrolet/equinox/">Chevrolet Equinox</a> and <a href="http://autoblog.com/gmc/terrain/">GMC Terrain</a> 'utes, which makes sense since recent rumors suggest GM's small crossovers will migrate to a new platform that will mark a convergence between the automaker's Delta (<a href="http://autoblog.com/chevrolet/cruze/">Chevy Cruze</a>, <a href="http://autoblog.com/buick/verano/">Buick Verano</a>) and Theta (Equinox, Terrain) platforms. This Buick would likely use this new D2UX platform.<br /><br />We've been expecting Buick to unleash a crossover to slot between the very small Encore and the very large Enclave, and various rumors have indicated that the model may be known as either the Anthem or Envision. It's worth mentioning that <a /2009/08/06/buick-teases-baby-enclave-promises-2011-plug-in-hybrid-version/'>href="http://www.autoblog.com/2009/08/06/buick-teases-baby-enclave-promises-2011-plug-in-hybrid-version/">Buick had planned</a>, back in 2009, to release a vehicle in the compact CUV market, but <a /2009/08/19/breaking-gm-cancels-buick-crossover-will-add-phev-drivetrain-t/'>href="http://www.autoblog.com/2009/08/19/breaking-gm-cancels-buick-crossover-will-add-phev-drivetrain-t/">abandoned those plans</a> after a particularly poor reception.<br /><br />And now for something completely different... Take another look at the spy shots above, and pay special attention to the cylindrical device mounted to the vehicle's roof. We can't say for sure what it is, but our spy photographer opines that it looks quite a bit like the 360-degree Lidar camera equipment used by Google for its autonomous cars. Is General Motors <a /2012/05/01/google-approaching-automakers-to-help-build-self-driving-cars/'>href="http://www.autoblog.com/2012/05/01/google-approaching-automakers-to-help-build-self-driving-cars/">working with Google</a> on autonomous car technology? We don't know, but you can definitely consider us intrigued.<p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;"><a /2013/06/12/buick-version-of-equinox-terrain-cuv-spied-testing-with-auton/'>href="http://www.autoblog.com/2013/06/12/buick-version-of-equinox-terrain-cuv-spied-testing-with-auton/">Buick version of Equinox/Terrain CUV spied testing... with autonomous gear?</a> originally appeared on <a href="http://www.autoblog.com">Autoblog</a> on Wed, 12 Jun 2013 19:59:00 EST.

Most definitely. Probably saying nasty things about the photographers parents not being married or something like that too.
