Chevy had to postpone the start of production for the all-new third-generation 2024 Traverse, resulting in the second-generation 2023 model carrying over as the Traverse Limited for a limited time until the all-new SUV hits the market in volume. According to GM Authority, Buick is in a similar situation to the 2024 Envision.
Just one month after the online reveal in June, GMA announced that the original October start date for production had been pushed back to December 11. Dealers began placing orders in September in anticipation of October production. After the October deadline, a November update stated that the show would start in the first quarter of 2024.
The refreshed Envision will have a new front end with a more prominent grille positioned lower on the front fascia, bright trim, and the new Buick emblem on the hood. The headlights are now integrated into the bumper and LED daytime running lights replace the headlights of the previous Envision. The updated design aligns the Envision with other recent Buick additions, such as the Encore.
The plan shift may result in a reworked trim lineup for the holdover. According to Autodata, the 2024 Envision will only be available in three all-wheel-drive trims: Preferred, Sport Touring, and Avenir. According to MSRP data, the 2024 Envision pricing will drop by about $2,000 on all edges except the Avenir.
