Innovative Upgrades in the 2019 Buick Envision
Buick released the Envision to the US market in 2016. With the 2019 model, there are some slight changes to the exterior, but most of the upgrades are under the hood. The new turbo models have upgraded LED headlights and models with naturally aspirated engines have HID lamps. You may notice that the taillights are slightly smaller and have a more modern design.
Changes that you won’t see but will notice in the improved performance of the vehicle include the new nine-speed automatic transmission. This cutting-edge transmission was co-designed with General Motors and Ford. The new model includes a stronger gearbox so the acceleration on the turbocharged 2.0-liter engine is enhanced and there are 35 lb.-ft of torque gains.
You’ll love the changes that enhance your experience in the interior of the vehicle. The HVAC system now has an air ionizer to purify the air inside the vehicle effectively. Buick made changes to augment the seat heaters. There is now a shutoff switch for the auto stop/start system, which has not been included in many of those similarly equipped GM vehicles.
This model now offers simplified switching from adaptive cruise control to regular cruise control. If you use this function when driving in inclement weather, you’ll love this feature since sensors can often get covered with snow, ice, and salt.
Charging your phone with easy access to it is possible with the new wireless charging slot that is located in the center console. Fitting your phone in the slot for a secured fit is simple and makes your life easier with simple charging.
The best part of this new 2019 Buick Envision is that it costs less than the previous model, even with all these great upgrades! How great is that! You have various trim models to choose from, and you can save anywhere from $1400 to $2400 compared to earlier models.
