The 2017 Buick Envision is the beginning of a new era for Buick’s lineup. In 2016, the all-new small SUV – which was developed to fit between the subcompact Encore and the three-row Enclave – saw a limited release of only two, higher-end trim levels to give consumers a taste of what was to come. For 2017, however, more Buick Envision details are being released attesting to the expansion of the nameplate’s model lineup.
The 2017 Envision adds three less expensive trim levels to its lineup with a standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 197 horsepower. The Essence and Preferred trims also offer the option of all-wheel drive. Unlike the 2016 model, where the lowest trim level cost about $42,995, the base model of the 2017 version will see the price drop to $34,990. Even though the base models see a reduction in performance due to not having the turbo engine on the Premium and Premium II trims, the base model comes with a long list of standard features, such as heated seats, automatic climate control, and remote keyless start.
The 2017 Buick Envision is coming to dealerships soon with these expanded options, making it more affordable for customers to get their hands on the grace, leisurely comforts, and great performance of Buick’s latest installment to the SUV class.
