    2016 Buick Envision to Start In the Low $40,000s


    • How much for a 2016 Envision?

    When the Buick Envision hits dealers in June, you'll only be able to get it in the two highest trims, along with a turbo engine and all-wheel drive. We first learned about this back at the Detroit Auto Show when speaking with a Buick representative and now we have more details.

     

    According to Automotive News, the 2016 Envision will start at $42,995 for the Premium I trim and $45,635 for the Premium II trim. Both prices include destination. These models will feature a 2.0 turbocharged four-cylinder with 252 horsepower and all-wheel drive.

     

    Now if those prices scare you, don't fret. The 2016 Envision will only be sold between June and October. After that, the 2017 Envision will arrive at dealers with an expanded lineup with three other trims. Prices for the 2017 model will begin at $34,990 for the base model. The base and other two trims - Preferred and Essence - will get a 2.5L four-cylinder with 197 horsepower. Expect a choice of front or all-wheel drive for these models.

     

    We'll have more details when Buick officially announces Envision pricing hopefully in the near future.

    EXCITEMENT! :P Wish they would tell us what specifically is in Premium 1 trim versus Premium 2 trim.

     

    I am excited for this to hit the dealers lots. I expect it to do well for Buick.

     

    Update: Buick now has all the details on their web site.

    Based on comparing the two trims, I would have to have the Premium 2 Package. I have to have my cooled seats, something that is not available in the Premium 1 package.

     

    Even after looking at the 2017 trims that are also posted for the 3 lower trim levels, I would still only consider the Premium 2 package on this auto.

    After pricing out a new Jaguar F Pace on line for like 45k, I scratch my head to figure who is gonna pony up for this, especially with its already past due styling, and Chinese build.

    I have been showing this to coworkers who have come to me asking about AWD CUVs and I have to say this is being received very warmly. There is plenty of interest in these auto's and being built in China is not an issue it would seem.

    Not the mention the people who don't want Jaguar maintenance after the warranty runs out.

    So true as the reliability of Jags is terrible. I would hate to have to pay for the repairs of these poor quality so called Luxury autos.

    That was number 2 on the reasons I wouldn't want a Jag but if I was buying brand new I wouldn't be overly concerned about that part. That's more what I, personally, would worry about as I'm more of a 2nd hand car purchaser where I probably won't have much, if any, warranty remaining.

    A Lexus NX or Lincoln MKC is cheaper and a much better deal than the Envision.  And the Lexus NX is a Lexus, it has a real luxury badge on it.  And if people are shopping reliability, sadly Lexus is the best in that regard.   $45k for an Envision Premium 2?  You can get a Lexus RX for that money, and have a larger, roomier vehicle, with a V6, etc.

    . There you go again. Let me tell you something about the Lexus NX. It is a Fancy Toyota RAV4. Funny how you don't say anything about that but when it involves Cadillac, it is somehow a different story.

    We are talking about a Chinese built Buick SUV that has already been on market a few years and looks dated at launch, and they want Lexus money for it.  Yes the Lexus NX is a Rav4 underneath, but it is still a Lexus, which is better than any Buick, and a much more respected badge.  

     

    I was comparing the Envision to NX and MKC because they are based on the Rav4 and Escape, and turbo 4, front drive crossovers.  Both the Lincoln and Lexus are nicer and I think look better and have a better brand image.  Would be unfair to compare those 2nd tier crossovers to the rear drive Germans.

    Normally I'd agree, but the Lexus NX beat the venerable BMW X3 in MT's recent comparison.

     

    It may be a fancy RAV4 but it has the substance, and the Buick being a Chinese car - I'm okay with it, but no way hell would I consider it.

    Bah, again, the Lexus NX beat the RWD X3 in a luxo crossover comparison. The Mercedes GLC is probably best in class, but it has yet to be compared against.

    For $33k base in the Lincoln MKC you get a turbo 4 making 240 hp and 270 lb-ft.  For $35k in the Lexus NX you get a 235 hp, 258 lb-ft turbo 4.  For that price in the Buick you get the 2.5 liter 4 making 197 hp and 192 lb-ft.

    Yeah. The Buick is not really that good of a proposition anymore. I mean, there are options already that do quiet and soft. It is somewhat large for its segment.

     

    And only in the top model you get the option of the better AWD system.

     

    I think the Buick will do well regardless. 

     

    I would go odd ball here and get a Mazda CX-5 and call it a day.

    Buick Verano

    Buick Encore

     

    and now the Buick Envision....

     

     Based on the last two made for Chinese market and sold here in North America a year later were actually big hits for Buick.

    Yeah that's right!

    The Verano in China called the Excelle was engineered for China....and so was the Opel Mokka/Buick Encore. (the Encore was also made for Europe in mind....but it is built in 2 Asian countries and in 1 European one...)

     

    I think this latest Buick product will follow in the footsteps of the cars I just mentioned...which is sales success.

    Ive got past history on my side....and that is what Im basing my opinion on...

    That really isn't saying much to me as the X3 has always been unremarkable.

     

    You also missed the bigger point of why I said it in the first place.

    You keep telling yourself that. You'd be wrong but keep telling yourself that, especially when stating things like Lincoln having a better brand image here when you have completely dogged them out in every other way on every other thread about Lincoln. BTW, Buick has beaten Lexus in several comparos (see LaCrosse vs. ES350 for one example) so your "Lexus better than any Buick" remark is, as usual, pure hot air.

    right now i think you get a 6 yr warranty on Jags.  I'll check that.

     

    I'd choose a Jag before a Chinese vehicle at 45-50k.  I'd have a lot more trust in that.

     

    45k for 340 +/- hp supercharged v6, big ass moonroof, etc.  sure it may not be real leather at that price? but often GM's leather feels more like vinyl anyways.  This is a serious machine, not a next gen downsized Equinox

    Yeah I just built a Jag F-Pace for $50,520 and the only thing I didn't add because it was 2k was the bi-xenon headlights but it came with parking sensors and crap I didn't really want and I didn't think 2k was worth it.  

     

    6 years but how many miles? 

     

    FYI This is how mine turned out. http://rules.config.jaguar.com/jdx/en_us_seatoff/f-pace_k17/3c3m9/a-30p-340aawd_a-crossover_jt1/b16d-f45c_c55r_f96j_h01ejet_hgy_jt1b-1_z93l1/jaguar.pdf

    If I'm buying brand new and I have warranty and if both dealers were within a reasonable distance(which they are not in my case..at all. The closest Jag dealer is probably an hour to an hour-15 away and a Chevy/Buick/GMC dealer is about 4 miles away.) I would take the sportier and much better looking(in my opinion) Jag. Which is also a lot more optionable as well. There are just more ways to order your F-Pace than there are an Envision. Aren't there only 2 trims to choose from and 1 engine and only AWD? I know the F-Pace is only had in AWD as well but they offer 3 engines and 5 trim packages.

     

    I guess the biggest thing to me is the looks and the 340hp engine(middle engine) for 45k and one step up in package. It actually seems like a better deal to the enthusiast. Of course this is all dependent on their warranty because if for some reason there were no warranty or only like 5 years but 30,000 miles for some reason then it's a deal breaker because I would never trust a Jag outside of the warranty period.

    That's the thing. Jaguar has a very sparse dealer and parts network compared to Buick. Listen. I have always loved the look of most Jaguars but they are nightmares after the warranty runs out (and sometimes before it runs out), which is still a big deal for most folks. They are just piles of dung to me and I have seen nothing from them over the years that will change my opinion of them.

      It has been a long time coming. But we knew sooner or later, we would get our first glimpse at the upcoming Opel/Vauxhall Insignia (also Buick Regal and Holden Commodore) minus the camo. That day has finally arrived as the Insignia sedan and Sport Tourer have been caught uncovered. 
      The front end reminds us a lot of the current Mazda6 - a flat nose with a pentagonal grille and slim headlights. Along the side, there has been some sculpting along the lower part of the doors that add some sharpness. The back end features similar styling to the Buick LaCrosse with a similarly shaped trunklid and taillights that extend into the rear fenders. The Sport Tourer features a more distinctive character line and a steeply raked rear tailgate.
      Both models are the top-line OPC trim which means a number of sporty touches to the exterior, 20-inch wheels, large Brembo brakes, small spoiler, and dual exhaust tips.
      The second-generation Insignia is 2.1 inches longer and rides on a wheelbase that has been stretched 3.6 inches. This should help one of the key issues of the current Insignia and its brethren, a tight back seat. The new Insignia has also been lowered by 1.1 inches to give it a sportier stance.
      Motor1 reports that Opel and Vauxhall will reveal the next-generation Insignia later this month online, followed by a debut at the Geneva Motor Show in March. The Sports Tourer expected a few months later.
