The Buick Envision was a bit of a rush job to fill out Buick’s crossover portfolio—a portfolio the brand credits as one of the major factors behind its resurgence in North America. However, it has left the mid-size crossover a little off looking compared to the 2018 Buick Enclave and 2018 Buick Encore.
That will soon change, evidenced by new spy shots that show a refreshed Buick Envision. Notably, its design updates include new head and taillights to bring the crossover closer to Buick’s current design trends. The headlights are slightly more angular and feature familiar daytime-running LEDs, while the rear lights look akin to the LaCrosse’s boomerang units.
The front grille also sports Buick’s typical winged element, and we bet the badge under the camouflage is now colored, not silver-chrome, like the current Envision. It also seems the front and rear bumpers have been redesigned and look more flush than the current Envision.
Since these updates are minor at best, we likely won’t see any major powertrain changes. It’s also unclear if Buick will update the interior, which is also a tad different than other Buicks. However, we’ll likely see the crossover sooner rather than later, most likely sometime next year. We also expect to see Buick’s Avenir sub-brand to grace the Chinese-built crossover in the near future, too.
