  • The 2024 Buick Envision adds a 30-inch digital screen in the dashboard to handle the task of controlling your media, navigation, and driver instrumentation.

  • For 2024, Buick has turned its Sport Touring package into its own standalone variant, which takes the place of the outgoing Essence trim.

  • The 2024 Buick Envision starts at $37,295 for the entry-level Preferred variant and will go on sale this summer.


Buick continues pushing to update its portfolio with a refreshed 2024 Envision. Launching the second-generation Envision only a handful of years ago, the company is giving the crossover a series of important updates.

The biggest draw for prospective ‘24 Envision buyers is a new, 30-inch standard display, surrounded by revised interior and exterior styling. Buick is also shaking up the available trim options this year. In 2023, Buick sold 44,281 Envisions in the US (up a surprising 71% from 2022), but this upscale midsize crossover lags far behind mainstream rivals such as the Chevy Equinox, Honda CR-V, Hyundai Santa Fe, Mazda CX-5, Nissan Rogue, and Toyota RAV4.

As for the powertrain, Buick left it alone. Buick is carrying over the 2.0-liter turbocharged I4 that sends 228 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque through a nine-speed automatic transmission. While the numbers are exactly the same as the outgoing model, there is one noteworthy change: standard all-wheel drive. Front-wheel-drive models won’t see 2024, and every Envision will now send torque to all four wheels all the time.

The 30-inch, customizable touchscreen is the centerpiece of this new interior, and the interface handles media, navigation, and driver needs. The screen can relay nav functions directly ahead of the driver if you want. The one downside is that Buick did move the headlight controls into the screen, like the GMC Canyon. Other than that, this screen is enabled for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and it looks impressive in person.
