The 2020 Buick Envision is back with an improved, stylish design and premium comfort standards that make for a smooth ride like no other. The Envision includes the latest in enhanced safety features, high-tech connectivity, and world-class performance. Never underestimate what Buick has to offer. If you’re considering an SUV Crossover for the new year, you’ll definitely want to give this one a test drive.

Making Your Life Easier and More Enjoyable with Special Features

If your hands are full with grocery bags or luggage, don’t worry about juggling to reach the trunk handle. Using the handy power liftgate feature, simply tap your foot below the sensor (underneath the rear of the car) and the truck opens up for you automatically. You don’t have to worry about your phone running out of battery either, when on a trip with the Envision. Passengers have easy access to USB ports so you can charge while you drive and never risk going without a phone.

When designing your new Envision, you can choose from four shiny, new wheel options. LED-accented headlamps and taillamps bring an extra brightness to illuminate an evening drive. The interior glows as well, with moonlight-toned ambient lighting available for all passengers. While out for a late-night cruise, don’t forget to take advantage of the Buick’s panoramic moonroof. Your passengers can enjoy a romantic view of the moon and stars above as your ride through the night.

Comfortable Ride That Appeals to All The Senses

The 2020 Envision has a spacious interior that easily seats five people. If you’re interested in stretching out with extra room, slide back the 2nd-row seat and gain up to 7” of legroom. You’ll stay comfortable on long rides with power lumbar support. Breathe fresh air inside your vehicle despite outside air pollution with the Buick’s air ionizer. A heated steering wheel will keep your hands warm in the winter, along with heated front seats. On a hot summer day, the 2020 Buick Envision offers cooling technology, with chilled front seats and HVAC automatic climate control for backseat passengers.

Quieting technology makes for a tranquil ride no matter how much noisy traffic or construction is going on around you. Buick uses Active Noise Cancellation to let you listen to music without interference, or just enjoy a quiet drive. Triple door seals and acoustic laminated glass (in the windshield and front windows) prevent loud, outside noise from disrupting your peace and quiet on the road. Don’t believe us? That’s fine, look for yourself on Buick.com.

Keeping You and Your Family Safe

While there’s no substitute for an attentive and cautious driver, the 2020 Buick Envision does everything possible to make sure you are seated at an advantage against various dangers on the road. Safety starts with having a clear view of your surroundings. With Surround Vision, you get a birds-eye view to help you park and steer clear of obstructions.

The 2020 Envision alerts you of the risk for a crash, with Forward Collision Alert. If you’re following too closely or the vehicle in front of you stops suddenly, this technology warns you to watch out. If you’d rather be reminded by a pulse on your seat instead of a beeping sound, you have the option to choose. When a crash is imminent, Enhanced Automatic Emergency Braking kicks into either brake for you, or to help you brake harder, reducing the severity of a crash or avoiding an accident altogether.

Changing lanes or backing up is safer in the new Buick. If there are obstructions blocking your view when trying to back-up, the Rear Traffic Alert will warn you of cars coming from the left or right. If the Envision veers slightly out of its lane while driving, Lane Keep Assist will provide gentle steering adjustments to keep you safely on course. Using your turn signal lets you change lanes without Lane Keep Assist from being triggered, so this is a good reminder to use your blinker before making a move. Side mirrors are equipped using Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert. These features protect you from accidentally hitting a vehicle in your blindspot while switching lanes.

Unfortunately, sometimes, even the best technology cannot prevent a collision. The Envision protects passengers with ten standard airbags. The Envision gives drivers peace of mind by providing a safe and reliable vehicle for day-to-day and long trip navigation.

Teen Driver Angst

If you’re letting a teenager drive your new Envision, rest assured that the automakers at Buick have got your back. Teen Driver Mode allows car owners to monitor and track driving behavior. This innovative software gives parents the control to set speed alerts and audio volume limits, even when they’re not in the vehicle. Get an in-vehicle report card to make sure your teen is driving safely, and your new Envision is being handled with care.

The Latest In Automobile Technology

The 2020 Envision keeps drivers informed at all times with the Driver Information Center. An 8” diagonal display shows oil life, fuel level, and other diagnostics clearly visible at a glance, letting drivers know what’s going on without having to look away from the road for an extended time.

The Buick “infotainment system” combines entertainment with helpful information. An 8” digital touch-screen provides drivers with easy access to GPS, music, and Bluetooth smartphone connectivity. Instead of looking down to view maps, you can employ Heads Up technology to project critical information on the windshield right in front of you. Using the touch-screen or your voice allows for phone calls and texting to be done completely hands-free. Apple and Android devices are compatible with the Envision’s technology features.

If you’re running low on data, the 2020 Buick Envision includes Built-in 4G LTE Wifi-HotSpot that connects up to seven devices that are within 50 feet. Access the internet, social media, games, and entertainment with no interruptions. Along with available USB charging ports, take advantage of wireless charging by placing a compatible device in a pocket in front of the center console. Spare no loss of your smartphone or tablet usage when out on a long trip with the Envision.

Performance Like No Other

Power options on the 2020 Buick Envision include a standard 2.5-liter engine with 197 horsepower or a 2.0-liter engine with 252 horsepower. Using HiPer Strut technology, the front suspension system offers responsive steering. Along with 9-speed automatic transmission, the Buick Envision creates a smooth ride on a bumpy road. In slippery road conditions, intelligent All-Wheel Drive with active twin-clutch automatically optimizes traction for each individual wheel. This proactively improves driving control and lets you get to your destination safely.

Despite its powerful engine, the 2020 Envision reduces fuel consumption by using Stop/Start Technology. This shuts down the engine at stoplights and restarts when you take your foot off the brake. Stop/Start technology is optional and easily shut on or off based on the driver’s preferences. To reduce the fuel wasted from constant braking and speeding up, the Adaptive Cruise Control Advanced helps you set the right pace using radar technology and sensors to adjust your speed based on the other vehicles on the road.

The 2020 Buick Envision is an example of all the latest innovations brought together in one vehicle. Whether you need the cargo space, passenger seating, extra legroom, or just want to enjoy some creature comforts and fancy features, the Envision is a great option for any driver seeking a new and improved ride.
