Details are expected to be released shortly but the 2019 Envision will be virtually identical to the one that is sold in China. As a result, the model will have an all-new front fascia with a revised grille that echoes newer models such as the Enclave and Lacrosse. The crossover will also have additional chrome trim and newly available LED headlights.
Most of the styling changes occur at the rear of the crossover as the Envision has been equipped with a new bumper and a revised liftgate. The Envision also boasts restyled taillights and a modified exhaust system.
The Chinese-spec model comes equipped with an updated infotainment but the report suggests the US model will carryover largely untouched. However, there will reportedly be a new button to deactivate the engine start/stop system.
In China, the model is offered with two turbocharged engines. The entry-level 1.5-liter unit produces 166 hp (124 kW) and 184 lb-ft (250 Nm) of torque, while the 2.0-liter develops 256 hp (191 kW) and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque.
There’s no word on what will power the US-spec model but the Envision is currently offered with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder producing 197 hp (146 kW) and 192 lb-ft (260 Nm) of torque. Higher end variants have a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder with 252 hp (187 kW) and 260 lb-ft (352 Nm) of torque.
