The 2017 Buick Envision may be made in China but that does not change the fact that it is still an American vehicle. This means that the 2017 Buick Envision still very much delivers when it comes to quality and capability. In fact, the 2017 Buick Envision is more capable than what most people would give it credit for.

2017 Buick Envision: A Couple Of Good Powertrains

The 2017 Buick Envision gives you two options for its powertrain. The lower trims are equipped with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine delivers 197 horsepower. You can choose between a front wheel drive (FWD) or an all-wheel drive configuration for its drivetrain. If you are not satisfied with the power, you can always move up to the top trims and get the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that cranks out 252 horsepower.

This powertrain however, will only come with the AWD setting, which is actually not a bad deal at all. According to The Car Connection, all models of the 2017 Buick Envision will be matted with a six-speed manual transmission. There's more than enough power there to give you a fun driving experience.

2017 Buick Envision: Great Ride Quality

Remember what they say about not judging the book by its cover? In this case, don't judge the Buick from where it was made from. The 2017 Buick Envision actually boasts a great ride quality. According to CNET, the 2017 Buick Envision has a suspension system that basically absorbs all the road bumps and your passengers will barely feel any vibrations. If you want a quiet ride, the 2017 Buick Envision also provides a great option because its noise cancellation is no less than top of the line.

However, go through about 70 to 80 miles per hour and you would hear a little bit complain from the A-pillars. As far as how the engine performs, well, you will just have to get behind the wheel and feel it for yourself because there really is no substitute to driving the vehicle yourself.

You will always have one or two things that will ruin your perfect vision of a ride for you and the 2017 Buick Envision is no exception. In 2017 Buick Envision's case, the most annoying thing you will probably find is the fact that its turn signals are too loud and too bright. If you are from the millennial market, this would most likely become a turn-off for you. However, this would probably be good news also if you are from the older market.
