The 2017 Buick Envision Essence has some upgraded features such as the widened lineup offers and the possible second engine addition. Regarding relative crossovers, the company is looking for ways to cover all the possible bases. This is a practically smart move considering that the vehicle market is flourishing in all aspects which may prove to be highly potential for such vehicles.
2017 Buick Envision Essence – Design and Features:
Both the previous designs such as the compact Encore and the three-row Enclave are strong and prominent sellers of the company. On the other hand, the brand new Chinese-built Envision crossover is on its way to the USA market and fits quite easily into the marginalized space in between the two models.
However, the first batch of the 2016 Envision which were sold there did not offer a wide range of variety. The design was pinned as 2016 design and allowed for only Premium and Premium II trim levels in the United States of America. Both of these come with a standard 252-hp turbocharged four-cylinder and all-wheel drive.
This is where the wider, strategically designed 2017 Buick Envision Essence series enters the scene. This model reports to potentially add three trim levels below the former Premium to greater the completion chances of similarities with other models such as the Acura RDX and the Lincoln MKC.
2017 Buick Envision Essence – Engine Specs:
In place of the Premium designs of the turbo engine series, the new three variations in designs come with a naturally standard design with a conveniently aspirated 2.5-liter four-cylinder making 197 hp and 192 lb-ft of blazing torque. One can also add that the 55-hp power reduction in the newest design and the 2.5-liter models also has an assortment of 18-inch wheels instead of the 2.0T or the 19 inches as they are also called. The only available transmission choice to the customers is the six-speed automatic. Other than that an all-wheel drive is an option that is offered on the front drive design of the former Premium vehicle. The same goes for the other marketed models such as the Essence as well.
However, the customer must take note that though the models maintain 2.5-liter engines the use of such designs drops down to the menial and less sophisticated AWD mechanical systems than the one that the 2.0T models share.
2017 Buick Envision Essence – Release Date and Price:
The Envision model is reported to potentially leap over the $40,000 bar range of starting price. This will, in turn, cover a conveniently narrow range of the premium series crossover lineup. Nevertheless, the Envision models’ prices drop on point with the standard base model starting at the lowest cost of $34,990. Other designs ranging as the following: the Preferred at $36,795 and the Essence at $38,645.
These are highly significant discounts if one compares to the previous models each of which is $250 higher than the actual equivalent of the 2016 models of the year. The company to go smoothly along with the cuts in the prices released the designs so that the lower trim level Envision model gives an enormous and spectacular amount of performance.
