Buick had decided to slot the Buick Envision between the Encore and Enclave models but it appears the 2016 model year of the Envision will be more expensive than the latter, which goes from $39,065.
According to the latest report on the model, the 2016 Envision will start at $42,995. The rather expensive model will come packing the Premium I trim level, which at least comes with a pretty big list of features, such as heated steering wheel, heated front / rear seats as well as leather upholstery. The crossover, produced and imported from China, includes a US-specific level of safety, packing systems such as forward-collision alert, lane-keeping assist, and a blind-spot warning system. Go for the $45,635 Envision Premium II and the added goodies will include HID headlights, a head-up display, and an automatic park assist system, as well as ventilated front seats and a GPS navigation system.
Both versions will feature under the hood a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with an estimated power output of 252 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. It will be linked to a six-speed automatic transmission and a standard all-wheel drive system. Buyers can also wait for the 2017 model year version coming this fall which should have a bigger line-up starting from $34,990. The other options will be the $36,795 Envision Preferred and the $38,645 Envision Essence.
