Hi, best of luck. We traded a '14 Equinox LTZ 3.6L v6 for our 2018 Buick Envision Premium (purchased new) and now have 32K miles. We are very happy with the Buick as it approaches it's 3rd anniversary in May and in fact consider it the best car we have ever owned. In our opinion it does everything well, ride, handling, power, braking, comfort and we feel very safe in driving it. Actually, the dealer recently gave me an Essence loaner during an oil change visit due to need. I thought the Essence road much smoother on the 18" Michelins versus the Premium that has 19" Hankook tires and I did not notice any major difference between the 2.5L versus the 2.0L T in our car either. It was only for 100 miles city/highway but noticeable to me none the less. Anyways best of luck to you and yours in your new car!
