Buick Prices Envision from $37,295

After showcasing the model’s new clothes almost one year ago, Buick has set pricing for its Envision crossover, one of four similarly-named – and similarly styled – vehicles in its lineup.

Alert readers will recognize Buick now hucks the Envista, Encore GX, Envision, and Enclave as its wares in America. Nary an Electra or Skylark in sight, to say nothing of a Roadmaster or Park Avenue. And the world turns.


Three trims are on tap, starting with the $37,295 Preferred and walking up the ladder to a $39,795 Sport Touring (new for ’24) before resting at an ambitious $48,395 Avenir. Today’s trims start at a lower price point, with the entry-level model stickering at $34,795. However, it should be noted that all Envision crossovers are now equipped with all-wheel drive as standard kit, so the price gulf is virtually non-existent compared to last year’s vehicle.


Which makes some of the cabin changes all the more remarkable. All trims will have a 30-inch touchscreen whose display will permit a measure of freeform, which is to say certain features like the brand’s navigation map should extend into the corners of the screen instead of appearing as a square peg in a trapezoidal hole, thus creating large black bezel space. We sampled a similar approach to such a display in the equally new Cadillac XT4, finding it an attractive and expensive-looking solution.


Powertrain selection remains the same as last year, meaning there is a 2.0L turbocharged mill on tap making 228 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque, though front-wheel drive has been binned as mentioned earlier in this post. Buick spox are hoping to raid the corporate toy chest for access to Super Cruise at a later date, apparently. It is our understanding this model will be assembled in China.


Through the first quarter of this year, Buick sold a total of 44,385 vehicles in America, about nine thousand more than Cadillac or roughly 13.4 percent of GM’s total volume for the same time frame. For the whole of 2023, Buick shifted 167,030 units which counted for about 6.5 percent of the 2.6 million rigs sold by The General last year.

    GM makes most of their vehicles in China sells them at American made prices and pockets the difference. Not to me ever but some people just don't care.

    So it's down to American Communist Union labor or Chinese Communist labor. I'll choose NEITHER.

  • 6-speed Pomodoro I had summer and winter tires for a car years ago. What a pain in the butt. You've permanently got a stack of tires hogging space in the garage and you've got to swap them yourself twice a year, because you can't fit a spare set of tires in a sportscar to pay someone else to swap 'em.I'd rather just put DWS06's on everything. But I haven't had a sportscar in 8 years, so maybe that's a terrible idea.
  • ShitHead It kicked on one time for me when a car abruptly turned into my lane. Worked as advertised. I was already about to lean into the brake as I was into the horn.
  • Theflyersfan I look at that front and I have to believe that BMW and Genesis designers look at that and go "wow...that's a little much." Rest of the car looks really good - they nailed the evolution of the previous design quite well. They didn't have to reinvent the wheel - when people want a Mustang, I don't think they are going to cross-shop because they know what they want.
  • Theflyersfan Winters go on around Halloween and Summers go on in late March or early April. However, there were some very cold mornings right after the summers went on that had me skidding a bit due to no grip! I do enough (ahem) spirited driving on empty hilly/mountain roads to justify a set of sticky rubber, and winters are a must as while there isn't much snow where I am (three dustings of snow this entire winter), I head to areas that get a bit more snow and winter tires turns that light, RWD car into a snow beast!
  • SCE to AUX My B5.5 was terrible, but maybe the bugs have been worked out of this one.
