Although it won’t distinguish much from the 2018 model year, the upcoming 2019 Buick Envision will bring a host of minor upgrades which will include more power, lower price, improved technology and better transmission. This model is a well-known five-seat crossover SUV which is a very good choice for families looking for a roomy and comfortable vehicle which provides a smooth ride, excellent safety equipment and has a reasonable price. As well, it represents one of the quietest vehicles in its class because of the active noise-cancellation. Under the hood, it offers two strong engines and the choice depends on a trim level.
The 2019 model year won’t differ much from the current model but it will arrive with some important upgrades. First, the exterior look will be slightly refreshed.

Furthermore, this version has gotten more gears as well. In the tech department, the new Buick now features several upgrades. It will be offered in five trim levels as before which include the base, Preferred, Essence, Premium, and Premium II.
