The refreshed Buick Envision was initially released in January of 2021 to build upon Buick’s luxurious, yet affordable, compact SUV lineup. The changes from the 2021 to 2022 model year are minimal, as the refresh is only into its second year. These changes primarily come in the form of new interior appointments, exterior colors and an additional appearance package (Sport Touring). The Envision is now lower and wider, with proportions and styling that combine the expressiveness of a car with the practicality of an SUV. It offers customers unique and distinct personas, including Preferred, Essence and Avenir.

Highlights include:

  • Buick Driver Confidence Plus package: A suite of nine standard advanced safety and driver assistance technologies, including Forward Collision Alert, Front Pedestrian Braking and Rear Park Assist
  • Next-generation Buick infotainment system with the brand’s first available 10.2-inch-diagonal color touchscreen
  • Available Amazon Alexa integration, along with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
  • A 2.0L Turbo engine and nine-speed automatic transmission with electronic shift control
  • Available all-wheel drive with electronically controlled twin-clutch operation
  • Available Continuous Damping Control suspension
  • Hands-free programmable power liftgate, standard on Essence and Avenir and available on Preferred


Distinctive Design

Envision designers had one overriding objective with the new SUV’s interior: Provide customers with a sense of reward in their everyday driving. “The new Envision’s cabin is welcoming, with a comfortable and premium environment intended to make the driver and passengers feel like every excursion is an occasion,” said Rob Cameron, design manager, Global Buick and GMC. “All of the elements are designed to celebrate what customers use the most on their drives today.”

At the heart of the Envision’s new interior is its driver-centric instrument panel, which is tilted toward the driver for a better, clearer view. The panel blends technology and convenience, including an 8-inch-diagonal color touch screen in the Preferred and Buick’s first available 10.2-inch-diagonal infotainment touchscreen in Essence and Avenir trims.

Electronic Precision Shift. Rather than a conventional mechanical shift lever, this electronic system uses electric push/pull buttons, which not only amplify the Envision’s technology quotient, but also free up space under the console.

  • Dual-wing center armrest. Popular with owners of the previous model, the split-center armrest returns to allow access to the under-armrest storage compartment without disturbing the resting elbow of the other front-seat passenger.
  • Covered storage compartment below the instrument panel. Its retractable cover allows hidden storage of valuables. In equipped vehicles, it is the home for the available Wireless Charging pad, along with an SD card slot, accessory outlet and USB ports.

Five-passenger seating is standard, with the 60/40-split second row featuring the capability to fold flat with the cargo floor, for a virtually seamless transition with the seatbacks and a minimal gap between them. Slotting in between the smaller Encore and Encore GX and the larger Enclave, the Envision has 52.7 cubic feet of cargo space behind the first-row seats and 25.2 cubic feet behind the second-row seats. A range of seating appointments, in light and dark color themes, are available, including perforated leather on Essence. Heated front seats are standard on Essence and available on Preferred.

Additional interior features include:

  • Heated steering wheel is standard on Essence and Avenir, and available on Preferred
  • QuietTuning is standard on all trims – including active noise cancellation and strategically placed acoustic materials
  • Panoramic power moonroof is available on Essence and Avenir

The three trims – Preferred, Essence and Avenir – each incorporate specific design features. The Preferred and Essence trims have an available Sport Touring package (see images below) that embodies a more agile appearance with darkened exterior touches and 20-inch wheels with a darkened finish. All models feature LED headlamps and taillamps and daytime running light signatures, as well as a welcome/walkaway lighting animation, which activates when using the key fob.

Safety and Driver Assistance Features

The new Envision is purposefully contented with standard and available active safety and driver assistance technologies designed to help monitor the vehicle’s surroundings and alert the driver to potential hazards — and, in some cases, take action to help avoid a threat. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the Envision an overall safety rating of 5 out of 5 stars.

The Buick Driver Confidence Plus package offers 9 standard active safety features, including:

  1. Automatic Emergency Braking
  2. Front Pedestrian Braking
  3. Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning
  4. Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert
  5. Forward Collision Alert
  6. Following Distance Indicator
  7. IntelliBeam, auto high beams
  8. Rear Cross Traffic Alert
  9. Rear Park Assist

Additional available driver assistance technologies include HD Surround Vision, Enhanced Automatic Parking Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, Head-up Display and more.
