Five trims are available: the base model, Preferred, Essence, Premium, and Premium II.

Like other Buick SUVs in the lineup, the Envision has a sporty, yet bulbous appearance. The front-end features a large grille with curved vertical slats. Sharp body lines run across the sides of the Envision. Chrome accents adorn the exterior, giving it a more premium look. Standard features include automatic headlights, daytime running lamps, body-color power/heated side mirrors with turn signal indicators, a hands-free power liftgate, and 18-inch aluminum wheels. LED signature lighting is also available.

Under the hood, the Envision is powered by a standard 197-hp, 2.7-liter 4-cylinder engine mated to a 6-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and front-wheel drive. All-wheel drive is also available for the Preferred and higher trim levels. The Premium and Premium II trims are equipped with a more powerful 252-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder. Fuel economy for the 2.7-liter models is an EPA-estimated 28/34 mpg city/highway. It lowers to a 23/30 mpg rating for the Turbo 2.0 models.

The center stack features the Buick IntelliLink multimedia system, which includes an 8-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth connectivity for phone and audio, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility, and two USB ports.
