2018 Buick Envision Spied With A Freshened Face5
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.

It looks like it is coming into line with the other Buick faces like the new La Crosse.
And that is to be expected and makes sense, actually – all the vehicles of a certain make are supposed to have similar stylistic appearance.
too bad it is assembled in CHINA or one would be in our garage
US or Canada built yes. I’d never buy one out of China. Lets hope Trump brings in a large import tax so GM etc have to bring production back to North America.
What people don’t understand is GM is only importing them because it would not make money sense to manufacture a car of a specific platform that they will only make in small quantities. Now that the high volume Equinox and Terrain have been put into production the Envision that is build on the same platform should make its way to U.S manufacturing. That should make some people happy. Will be good press for GM and maybe Trump, Lol.
