2017 Buick Envision To Start At $34,99013
The 2017 Buick Envision will have a starting price of $34,990. That’s for the “base” trim simply called Envision. Meanwhile, other trims offer more features and priced higher as a result.
*Prices include destination delivery charge.
To note, the starting price of the 2017 Envision is a full $8,005 lower than the 2016 Buick Envision since the 2017 model introduces three new trim levels (Envision base, Convenience, and Leather) below the range-topping Premium I and Premium II trims, which were the only two trims offered on the 2016 model.
The primary difference is that the three new trims are powered by a GM’s naturally-aspirated 2.5L I-4 LCV engine making 197 horsepower and 192 pound-feet of torque. Meanwhile, the Premium I and Premium II trims are propelled by GM’s more potent 2.0L I-4 LTG turbo-charged engine making 252 horses and 260 pound-feet of torque. In addition, models powered by the 2.5L engine are available with all-wheel-drive, but it’s not the same unique system as in the models with the 2.0L Turbo motor. Outside of the powertrain differences, the new trim levels also feature less features and equipment in a stair-step fashion, which you can see for yourself in the 2017 Buick Envision order guide.
According to Buick, the 2017 Buick Envision will be on dealer lots by the end of calendar year 2016.

Well they will have a base model. This should slot right in over the Terrain.
Now let the drama by some proceed.
GM/Buick needs to beat the Mazda CX-9 on pricing and options.
If the Envision can not be priced slightly below the 2017 CX-9 than GM will have a huge issue.
Do not forget the 2017 VW Tiguan either.
Mark this post……folks at Buick/GM Marketing Dept.
Envision is fantastic and should be priced accordingly as it rivals similar models offered by Lincoln, Lexus and Acura–Mazda, while fantastic, doesn’t fit into this segment.
Envision will outsell current estimates and as a result should be built in either the US or EU. Envision should be at Opel dealers, too, as it more than rivals Tiguan to the point of Audi be ware.
Overlapping price points are not a problem or bad thing. GM is too hung up on “brand lanes” and as such has reduced available options on Chevy products (in a bid to prop Buick) even though direct rivals such as Ford, Chrysler and Kia offer AWD/V6 packages.
Envision can go toe to toe with luxury brands and should be priced as such in N America. The faster Buick moves upmarket (with a heavy focus on non performance soft luxury a la Lexus/Audi) the beer off both Chevrolet and Cadillac will be.
Peter – the Envision (a compact luxury crossover) is not in the same class/segment as the new CX9 (a midsize mainstream crossover). So no, it does not have to “beat” the Mazda on price nor options… that will be the job of the upcoming Chevrolet midsize crossover that will slot between the Traverse and Equinox.
Alex- bottom line:
Envision is overpriced!
I do understand that GM has to make margins, having said that Sergio is making the same mistake at FCA.
2017 CX9 is a runaway hit, the 2017 VW Tiguan will be a formidable competitor.
My suggestion to GM/Buick is to re-group expeditiously and offer the 2017 Envision as follows:
Base- $29,000 usd.
Convenience- $31,000 usd.
Premium I- $34,500 usd.
Premium II- $36,500 usd.
In this case……you will mean business!!!
You/GM will end up selling them at these prices anyway……….
Why not do the right thing from day one?
GM has almost every dollar slot covered and even overlapped so this is not such a dramatic issue as you want it to appear as.
If they price this much lower base price wise it will be well into the Encore range that sells well already and does not need the over lap.
If optioned and appointed right for the segment it will do well. Also hey there is no real pressure as they will only importing a limited number of these.
The real danger is how the GMC stacks up vs this as the GMC Terrain will be the one to do the most damage to sales as it is sitting right on the floor and just slightly cheaper. But with the platform sharing and sales in China no real high volumes are needed. This is more like an add on model for some extra sales.
Terrain it’s my favorite GM SUV and the sort of vehicle that should stay in production just a little bit longer much like Cruze.
GM could always aim at the old Plymouth-life price point with a line up of fantastic, last generation models. This would be great way to keep using old tooling while battling the used car market.
The price and size overlap of the Envision to the next-gen Terrain will be outweighed by the vastly different styling of both crossovers, and the image of both. This (along with the new Acadia) will be the first time that design of two GM crossovers on the same platform will be so different that it will be very difficult to figure out that the two share an architecture.
Taking that to the retail level, the Envision and Terrain will attract very different customer subsets — the latter being feminine while the latter being masculine. So, no problem with the overlap.
Just saying- as soon as I hear someone tell me:
“Do not worry, no problem”………….
This is when I start paying extra attention!!!
Same is advisable for GM/Buick marketing Department……….the folks there are starting to loose their edge.
Feels to me like people attainting meetings and going along with the flow instead of having constructive discussions.
This is the type of thing that did in the “Old GM”………do no do it again pls.
yesssss, please drink the koolaid we have prepared for you. Made in china is gooooood and will save you moneyyyyyyy……..now drink up.
Premium II looks to be priced very competitively against a fully equipped Lincoln MKC, Lexus NX and especially Acura Q5, all in the same size class as the Envision. Mazda’s CX9 is a size larger. And with Cadillac still not all that close to a smaller SRX/XT5 stablemate, Buick can make it pretty luxurious. We’ll see how that goes, but in a year and a half it will be time to trade in our MKC and right now the Envision is, on paper, the leading candidate.
I saw a Envision out in the wild today at a local mall. Really handsome vehicle in the flesh. The exterior fit and finish was really good and the car had a presence to it. I would not say it was stunning but definitely a good looking vehicle.
