The 2017 Buick Envision launched in a hurry to ensure the brand entered the highly contested (and highly profitable) midsize crossover segment. This meant minor differences from its Chinese counterpart and only one powertrain combination, a 2.0-liter LTG turbo four-cylinder engine, at launch.
For 2017, Buick launched a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with front wheel drive to the lineup as an entry-level stepping stone for customers, but 2018 will bring a freshened look altogether. Spy shots show the 2018 Buick Envision with a refreshed face and rear is inbound sooner rather than later.
From what we can see under the camouflage, a slimmer grille is present and probably some revised headlamps, too. At the rear, a new bumper seems to house the tailpipes in a more tidy fashion. You can count on seeing the red, white and blue tri-shield badge also making its way for 2018 as well.
The Buick Envision is the first GM vehicle to be built in China and imported to the United States. Despite this criticism, reception has been positive. You can read more about our impressions on the Envision at the link here.
