The upcoming 2023 Buick Envision is a five-seat compact crossover SUV with so much to offer. This model is not as fancy as some other Buick models. However, it is still a premium model with a comfortable interior and a very modern exterior design. Under the hood, Envision crossover hides an efficient four-cylinder gasoline engine. A nine-speed automatic transmission comes as standard, while you can get an optional AWD system for $2,000.
As this is a relatively new model, Envision will receive minor updates only. If you don’t know, Buick Envision received a major overhaul in 2021. The sales will begin later this year, and here’s everything you need to know about this model.
Buick Envision Facelift
From what we know, the new 2023 Buick Envision will gain only minimal cosmetic upgrades. However, reports are saying that some trim levels could gain one significant upgrade. We don’t know which upgrade could occur, but rumors are suggesting new wheels. Moreover, new exterior colors are always a possibility, but that should be it. New model will lose Burnished Bronze Metallic and Satin Steel Metallic colors. However, Buick will surely deliver new paints as a replacement.
This compact crossover sits on the E2 platform and it shares a lot of styling cues with other Buick vehicles, and also with the Cadillac XT4 model. The Envision model is 109.3 inches long and it comes with a very modern design and stylish 20-inch alloy wheels.
What we like the most about this model is its premium interior design. As we said, the 2023 Buick Envision is not as luxurious model as some other models in the segment. Still, it is a Buick, which means it comes with a very premium interior. The cabin is full of soft touches and modern amenities, including wireless Android Auto/Apple CarPlay. Moreover, this crossover comes with blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and automatic emergency braking.
Those driver-assist aids are a part of the Driver Confidence Package. There will be room for five passengers and Envision model will provide guaranteed comfort. If you want more luxury, Envision Avenir is the best possible option as this is the range-topping trim level.
