Another excellent vehicle from Buick will soon hit the market. It is a luxury mid-size SUV called the Envision. Buick’s vehicles are highly desirable and there are many good reasons for that. The first generation of this model arrived just recently and the carmaker is now getting ready for a revamp.

Since the previous generation of this model recorded great sales, a revamped version could be even more successful. More precisely, the company sold over a million models worldwide.

Exterior of 2017 Buick Envision
The upcoming generation of the Envision will have muscular hood and profile. Thanks to some design details like waterfall grille, boomerang-shaped daytime running lights, and wing-like xenon headlights, the Envision looks more attractive than ever. Some people say that it represents a shrunken Enclave with all of the aforementioned features. The newcomer will be based on a brand-new platform. It shares the platform with the GMC Terrain and the Chevrolet Equinox. The 2017 Buick Envision will have distinctive fog-lamp housings and lower front apron. The rear end of the car is decorated with refreshed LED taillights with Buick logo residing between the two. Just like before, several exterior colors will be offered.
2017 Buick Envision Interior
If the exterior design of the 2017 Buick Envision didn’t drive you crazy, its interior surely will. It has a great deal of amenities and features. Its cabin is comfortable and spacious. It is generous for your luggage too. As for the convenience features, the carmaker brags about heated and cooled seats, leather-wrapped seats, an eight-inch touch-sensitive display, active noise cancellation technology, etc. The split center armrest and the center console are wrapped in high-quality leather. Most of the leather-wrapped surfaces come in Burgundy which represents a color which adds the cabin brightness and a dash of style. If you want to hear our impression, we are satisfied with everything the 2017 Buick Envision has to offer in its cabin. Let’s check what it offers in terms of performance, speed, and fuel economy.
Engine of 2017 Envision
As for the changes under the hood, there won’t be any and the Envision will be powered by the current 2.0-liter, four-cylinder power-plant. Coupled to a six-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel-drive system, the engine churns 256 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. The carmaker promises fuel economy of 27 mpg combined. What we also expect is that the carmaker will introduce other engine options later. A smaller, turbocharged four-banger engine and a V6 are highly anticipated. With the 2.0 liter engine serving under Envision’s hood, the vehicle will be able to hit 62 mph in 8.4 seconds with top speed of 130 mph.
