Although it will not make any difference to the 2018 model year, the upcoming 2019 Buick Envision will bring a series of minor updates that will include more power, lower prices, improved technology and better drivability. This model is a well known five seater crossover SUV, which is a great option for families looking for a spacious and comfortable vehicle that offers smooth driving, excellent safety equipment and a reasonable price. In addition, it represents one of the quietest vehicles due to active noise cancellation. Under the hood, it offers two powerful engines and the choice depends on a level of equipment.
Buick gave the 2019 Buick Envision crossover a respectable update mid-cycle. The outside has some important changes that should help to stand out in an overcrowded segment. At the front, the grille now has the winged Buick emblem visible in the manufacturer’s lineup. The bumper is modified with an acute shape, creating more of a lower serrated grille. The edges of the fog light are now more compact, leaving behind the chrome edge that extended to the lower grid. The lower apron is also smooth, but with a false sliding plate colored in a satin chrome. LED lights are mass produced throughout the finish line in 2019. The LED daytime running lights also give it a distinctive appearance. The two premium levels of equipment, the Premium and Premium II, are equipped with upgraded LED bifunctional headlights as standard. The most important changes occur in the back. Taillights, rear door, side panels and bumpers are more aggressive than before. Strong lines of character cut off the quarterbacks, giving 2019 Buick Envision a sportier look. The taillights have LED strips that give you an identifiable signature at night. Below, the bumper features a new faux satin chrome diffuser that is flanked by two chrome integrated exhaust tips. Finally, the optional 19 inch wheels have a new design that separates the 2019 model from its predecessors.
A quick glance inside the five passengers of the 2019 Buick Envision will not bring a big surprise. Buick did not change the drastic things like the design of the table or the size of the infotainment system screen. On the contrary, the changes are in the details. Users will find that heated seats warm up faster and their phones recharge faster than before. The wireless charging platform uses state of the art technology to charge devices like the iPhone 8 and iPhone X faster. During a phone call, users will enjoy better voice quality thanks to an updated microphone for the handsfree calling system. The resolution of the backup camera is also improved. Higher trim levels can also get the camera system convenient to 360 degrees. Finally, the 2019 Buick Envision now has an air ionizer that purifies the outside air before entering the cabin. Perhaps considered a novelty in North America, customers in China consider it more of a necessity because of air pollution in most metropolitan areas. The 2019 Buick Envision comes standard with an 8.0 inch infotainment display that runs software based on GM’s MyLink, IntelliLink and CUE systems. It offers Wi-Fi 4G LTE, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Unlimited plans cost just $ 20 per month via AT & T for the Wi-Fi hotspot. Buick has also simplified the transition from adaptive cruise control to conventional cruise control.
Buick updates for 2019 Buick Envision are still under the hood. The optional 2.0 liter turbocharged four cylinder now comes with a nine speed automatic that replaces the six speed car. The new gearbox comes with 35 lb-ft of torque, for a total of 295 lb-ft. Power remains at 252. The naturally aspirated 2.5 liter four cylinder standard is transported unchanged at 197 horsepower and 192 pounds of torque. It attaches to a six speed automatic transmission and powers the front wheels. AWD is available. In addition to updates, Buick now includes a disable button for the auto start / stop system, which allows the driver to shut down the system. When activated, the system automatically turns off the engine when the vehicle is stopped. When you release the brake pedal, the engine restarts instantly. Although they are designed to save fuel, some (including us) believe that automatic stop / start systems are troublesome. When it comes to fuel economy, do not expect a change in the standard performance of 2.5 liters. It is estimated that the EPA gets 22 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway in the form of FWD. Updated 2.0 liter turbo and nine speed automatic should provide better fuel economy than before, with 20 mpg in city and 26 mpg in AWD .
The new 2019 Buick Envision is expected to arrive in the spring. Its price will be between 34,000 and 44,600 dollars
