2019 Buick Envision: Preview, Pricing, Release Date & Photos

, Automotive Editor - February 22, 2018

Model Preview

Still relatively new, the Buick Envision is expected to remain unchanged stylistically for 2019. However, order guides indicate that standard features will get shuffled around for the new model year.

As a carryover, we expect the appearance of the 2019 Envision to be nearly identical to the current version, save for its new color option: Satin Steel Grey Metallic. In terms of features, though, there will be a few mild changes.

The most widespread change will be the inclusion of standard LED taillights on all Envisions. The 1SV, Preferred, and Essence will gain standard turned-down, hidden exhaust exits. Moving into the Premium I and Premium II trims will net buyers one new feature: Bi-LED headlights.

Inside, expect the 2019 Envision to look much like the current model. We will, however, see one small change to the features inside the Premium II trim, as wireless cellphone charging will now be included.

Under the hood, most key specs will remain unchanged. Its base engine will remain a 2.5-liter four-cylinder with 197 horsepower and 192 pound-feet of torque. In the Premium I and Premium II trims, buyers get the 2.0-liter turbo with 252 hp and 260 lb-ft.

The 2.5-liter will continue to pair with a six-speed automatic transmission, but the Premium I and Premium II will gain an all-new nine-speed automatic that could translate to improved fuel economy.

The current Envision missed being an IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus because it received just an “Acceptable” rating in the headlight test. If the new optional Bi-LED headlights can push that to a “Good” rating, it will earn that sought-after “Plus” at the end of the current model’s “Top Safety Pick” rating.

Pricing & Release Date

We expect to see the 2019 Envision in showrooms shortly after it kicks off production in March.

Pricing is not available just yet, but we only expect to see mild price increases relative to the current vehicle's MSRP range of $38,715 to $45,955 (destination fees included).

Competition will include the Acura RDX, Cadillac XT5, and Lexus NX 300.
