Buick Envision: One of the Automaker's Newest & Brightest Stars

Although it may be one of the newest additions to the Buick lineup at this the time of this writing, the Envision has already established a loyal and devoted fan following. Surprised? You shouldn't be. After all, unless you've been living under a rock, you've seen countless crossovers on the highways and roads in the Charlottesville and Martinsville, VA areas. The sport utility crossover vehicle has become the preferred vehicle of choice among auto shoppers at the present time and it doesn't look like that's going to change anytime soon.

Buick can be considered as either really smart or really lucky (most likely the former) for recently launching brand new and revised crossover vehicles like the Envision into the market. For far too long, the luxury crossover division has tended to be dominated by overpriced and under delivering models. All due respect to the competition, but when you compare their offerings to the Envision - Buick's midsized crossover clearly comes out on top.

The Envision was released into the North American market in 2016 and slots in size between the subcompact Encore and larger Enclave. Just like all Buick models, one of the highlights of the vehicle is how quiet the interior is when driving it on the road. It's all due to the smart engineering and sound deadening technology that the manufacturer implemented in the vehicle. It's also incredibly well-equipped and includes premium options as standard equipment that some other automakers make you pay extra for.

A Brief Review of the 2017 Buick Envision

Debuting just a year earlier as an all-new model, the 2017 Buick Envision was the recipient of two new trims during its second year of existence. As noted earlier, the Envision slots in size between the Encore and Enclave models and is a great choice for those looking for a solid midsized sport utility vehicle. The interior fit and finish of the Envision is second to none and the vehicle can save you significant money versus comparable European and Japanese models.

Some automotive pundits have referred to the 2017 Envision as "near luxury," but we think that is selling this midsized crossover short. It's loaded up with luxury features and amenities in all trim levels. For 2017, there are four distinct trim levels to choose from:

  • Convenience: The base trim comes with remote start, rear parking sensors, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, satellite radio, Bluetooth* phone/streaming audio, leatherette trim, active noise cancellation, dual zone automatic climate control, auto dimming rearview mirror, and more.
  • Leather: This trim adds tri-zone automatic climate control, heated steering wheel, leather upholstery, rear cross traffic alert, and heated seats.
  • Premium I: This trim piles on 19-inch wheels, Bose premium sound system, front parking sensors, safety alert seat, lane keeping assist, forward collision alert, and automatic windshield wipers to the long list of standard equipment.
  • Premium II: The top trim in the lineup includes premium features like xenon headlights, ventilated seats, head-up display, navigation system, and much more.

As far as engine choices are concerned, the 2017 Buick Envision is available with two powertrain options:

  • 2.5L 4-Cylinder (197 horsepower/192 lb-ft torque). This is the standard engine on the Convenience and Leather trims.
  • 2.0L Turbocharged Engine (252 horsepower/260 lb-ft torque). This is the standard powerplant on the Premium I and Premium II trims.

All 2017 Envision models come standard with front wheel drive, but all-wheel drive is available. A six speed automatic transmission system is standard and the vehicle sports a maximum towing capacity of 1,500 pounds.
