US-spec 2019 Buick Envision Facelift Priced From $32,990*

Following the model’s reveal in China, Buick has finally detailed the US-spec version of the 2019 Envision SUV.

Buick has updated the 2019 Envision with new front and rear ends that are now more “sculpted”, giving the SUV a stronger visual character. The revisions also include a new front grille, as well as new 19-inch wheel choices.

The range now gets HID headlights as standard on the 2.5L models while the more powerful 2.0L Turbo ones get LED headlamps. Both versions benefit from Buick’s new LED signature lighting.

Base models continue using a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, paired to a six-speed automatic transmission. Power is unchanged, at 197hp and 192lb-ft of torque. Front- and all-wheel drive versions are on offer.

Buick has added a new nine-speed automatic transmission for the turbocharged 2.0-liter models. The 2.0-liter turbo unit develops 252hp and 295lb-ft of torque, 35lb-ft more than the outgoing model. Buick claims the 2019 Envision 2.0L Turbo is now just under half-a-second quicker during the 0-60mph procedure.

Pricing for the 2019 Buick Envision starts from $32,990 (excluding tax, title, license and dealer fees), with all trim levels adjusted to attract existing Encore owners and buyers who consider a Buick for the first time.

“The Envision brings a tremendous growth opportunity for the Buick brand,” said Sam Russell, Buick marketing director. “The new pricing strategy not only puts the Envision in the heart of the industry’s largest segment, but also better positions it in relation to Encore, our top-selling nameplate.”

Every Envision model comes equipped with an eight-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a 4G-LTE hotspot and a limited trial of the OnStar services.

Sales of the 2019 Buick Envision are set to begin in the spring of 2018, with the range to include the Preferred ($34,495), Essence ($36,795), Premium ($41,695) and Premium II ($44,595).

    looks pretty good. the 2.0t with 9 speed sounds interesting. I hope to see a video review of this 19 model

  • gor134

    Not sure why anyone would buy this over a GLA or a CX5 or Terrain Denali and other competing crossovers

    • GLA is much smaller and cramped…I wouldn’t even call the GLA an SUV…

  • BlackPegasus

    The rear looks frumpy. And why include halogen turn signals if LED headlights are part of the lighting cluster? Cost cutting or just stupidity?

  • SteersUright

    They can only “envision” they’ll ever receive MSRP on a single one of these turds.

      They didn’t have any problem selling thousands of them at $40K last year.

        Which made the working masses back in China, very happy.

        • Status

          For the 0.0001% of the profits they got, you have a happy Chinese worker. The rest of the money went to Detroit. What’s your point?

          • Randy Terpstra

            Because the happy Chinese workers, are the only ones building the Envision. So, selling thousands of them, keeps them happy, while GM idles plants in North America.

    Although the mid-cycle refresh looks good, it will have to take a well trained eye to spot the differences between the outgoing 2018 model in comparison to 2019 model with the modest grille enhancements and a slimmer rear tail lamp and a redesign tailgate and bumper styling. So what does this means for the Cadillac XT5? The Buick Envision comes nicely equipped and when fully optioned, it will make a great alternative to the XT5, unless a six-cylinder is a must have.
