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.

  • El scotto I look forward to watching MTG and Tommy Tuberville when the UAW comes to their states.
  • El scotto Vehicle company white collar (non-union) engineers design the parts and assembly procedures. The UAW members are instructed on how to install the parts. Engineers are also in charge of quality control. The executives are ulimately responible for the quality of their products.
  • Chris P Bacon I don't care either way, the employees have the right to organize, and I'm never going to buy a VW. But.... It would be interesting if the media (HINT HINT) would be able to provide a detailed look at what (if anything) the VW workers gain by unionizing. There will be dues to pay. How much? I bet the current policies, pay and benefits mirror other auto companies. When all is said and done an the first contract signed, my money is on the UAW to be he only ones who really come out ahead. That leads into my next comment. Once a union is voted onto the property, it is almost impossible to get rid of them. Even if the membership feels the union doesn't have their best interests in mind, the hurdles to get rid of them are too high. There were a lot of promises made by the UAW, even if they don't deliver, they'll be in Chattanooga even if the membership decides they made a mistake.
  • 1995 SC How bout those steel tariffs. Wonder if everyone falls into the same camp with respect to supporting/opposing them as they did on the auto tariffs a few weeks ago. Doubt it. Wonder Why that would be?
  • Lorenzo Nice going! They eliminated the "5" numbers on the speedometer so they could get it to read up to 180 mph. The speed limit is 65? You have to guess one quarter of the needle distance between 60 and 80. Virtually every state has 55, 65, and 75 mph speed limits, not to mention urban areas where 25, 35, and 45 mph limits are common. All that guesswork to display a maximum speed the driver will never reach.
