Buick deftly blends refinement with pleasure and practicality in the 2018 Envision. An upscale crossover that sports a sculpted body and delivers a smooth driving experience, the Buick Envision is a wise choice for parents who want a classy family vehicle.
The right heart under the hood
The standard engine on the 2018 Envision is a well-rounded 2.5-liter DOHC four-cylinder with VVT. While its horsepower capability is 197 and its torque is 192 lb-ft, it averages an EPA-estimated 22 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway.*
The turbo engine on the Envision is definitely worth the upgrade. While only taking a minor dip in fuel efficiency, the 2.0-liter Turbo DOHC four-cylinder SIDI engine boosts horsepower up to 252 and torque to 260 lb-ft. You can find this powertrain on the Premium and Premium II trims.
The entry-level version of the Envision comes standard with front-wheel drive, but all of the trim levels have the option of all-wheel drive.
Innovation at your fingertips
Offering roomy seating for five people, the Envision’s cabin is replete with upscale touches like leather accents, heated seats, automatic climate control and noise cancellation technology.
What really makes the 2018 Envision a joy to ride in, though, is its dazzling array of standard technology features. Even the entry-level Envision comes an array of desirable features: the Buick Infotainment System, an 8-inch diagonal color touchscreen, USB chargers, a six-speaker audio system and SiriusXM® Satellite Radio. You can upgrade to a Bose® premium seven-speaker audio system, but otherwise you already have all your essentials.
At higher trim levels you can add a selection of high-tech safety features. Enhance your driving experience with the assistance of Lane Change Alert, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Alert and many other available tools.
Considering its price, you’ll be impressed by this model’s engine options and number of standard features. Take the new Envision for a spin and see why so many people are choosing Buick.
