The forthcoming 2020 Buick Envision will arrive with minor upgrades and refreshments. This five-seat four-door still rides on its first generation. Second generation model won’t arrive before 2022. For that reason, new Envision will get a small number of upgrades. Styling and exterior design will suffer small refinements and the interior will be modernized too.
Also, the new 9-speed transmission will be available and it is the most significant upgrade. Buick may introduce a couple of new exterior colors and safety department will get an update as well. Under the hood, things will stay intact.

When it comes to exterior design, the 2020 Buick Envision will look like its predecessor. This elegant mid-size crossover will get small updates that are barely visible. For the start, the front end will get a slightly revised grille and more chrome accents. In the back, Envision offers a somewhat sculpted design with beautiful lines and creases.
The platform will remain and Buick will offer new exterior paints. The first color is Espresso Metallic, and the second one is Dark Moon Blue Metallic. Besides that, this crossover will remain the same. Generally, Envision looks very attractive and elegant. Next year model should also get smaller upgrades before the second-gen Envision kicks in.
2020 Buick Envision Changes Inside
The interior of the all-new 2020 Buick Envision will also get small refreshments. However, the cabin will remain the same in terms of design and seating layout. Use of materials is also unchanged, but Envision is still one very comfortable crossover. Even the trim levels are intact, and the real luxury is available only on the range-topping model.
Dashboard and center console are the same as on the current model. On the other hand, IntelliLink infotainment system is updated and it comes with an 8-inch touchscreen. This unit supports the latest phone integrations such as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. List of standard features is long. That includes amenities such as dual-zone climate control, a Wi-Fi hotspot and power-adjustable front seats. Safety rating will be even better now. Buick will install new safety aids and some optional equipment will be standard now.

The smaller, optional and the more potent 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit is providing great power. This turbocharged engine generates 252 horses and 295 lb-ft of torque. The optional drivetrain will get an all-new 9-speed automatic transmission. This is the most significant upgrade on the 2020 Envision, no doubt about it. The platform is the same so the front-wheel-drive setup remains standard. Fuel economy is rated at 25 mpg combined.
