All-New Three-Row 2022 Buick Envision Plus Unveiled24
In an unexpected move, the Chinese-market 2022 Buick Envision Plus debuted last month with a standard two-row, five-passenger seating configuration – a surprising move considering the existence of the “regular” second-generation Envision. Now, three weeks later, General Motors has just presented the three-row variant of the Envision Plus.
Although we saw the cabin of the Tri-Shield brand’s new crossover last week, in base trim, the automaker released the first official interior images of the all-new 2022 Buick Envision Plus, showing off three rows of seats with room for seven. In fact, GM confirmed this configuration will be the most representative of the model against its direct rivals, and will be available from the base trim level upwards.
The 2022 Buick Envision Plus adopts a practical 2+3+2 seating arrangement, designed to meet the needs of families with class-leading comfort. Thanks to high optimization and packaging efficiency, the Envision Plus is able to offer plenty of versatility for users and their luggage.
GM claims the Buick Envision Plus’s second row bench features adjustable seatbacks, while both sides of the seat are equipped with an easy-entry feature. The second-row seat can slide fore and aft with 9.8-inch floor tracks, facilitating entry and exit to the third-row seat. In addition, the new crossover promises ample head and knee room in the rearmost row of seats.
The seven-seat variant of the Buick Envision Plus also features an abundance of storage points, with map pockets in the front and rear door panels, recessed drink holders and lots of space in the center console up front. Meanwhile, maximum cargo volume reaches 58 cubic feet (1,642 liters) for hauling larger objects.
The all-new 2022 Buick Envision Plus will be officially launched in the Chinese market in the coming months, both in the standard five-seat and optional seven-seat configurations. The range-topping Avenir trim is expected to only be available with the three-row seating layout. The crossover is expected to be unveiled in North America sometime this year, possibly as the Envision GX.

Buick NA could definitely use this vehicle. They need a bridge between the Envision and the Enclave
If GM decides to build this model here then, sure. Keep this communist chinese crap over there.
Make sure you throw out your communist built phone, tv, appliances, and clothing too.
When I have a choice, I don’t buy Chinese. That includes my cars, my mobile, my clothes, and my television.
When they start making these products in the US again I will.
Just picked up an Envision Avenir, best GM I’ve ever owned in initial quality. The china thing was a sticking point, but well, glad I put that aside. Thrilled with what I’ve got.
Give me a break all you China haters. If you have any electronics its built in China. PERIOD.
Get off your Chinese Rag. GM builds these there because China is the largest Consumer of Buick vehicles.
Stop the Bullshit about Lead Paint. That went out Decades Ago world wide and these are not painted with early 1900 technology.
Are you so damn paranoid that you think everybody is recording you? Sounds like some QANON conspiracy theory.
Made in China
No thanks. The car is probably laced with lead paint, built with inferior metal, is missing airbags, and records the conversations of its occupants.
My family rides around in our cars. I’m not buying one that is made in a country with such a strong culture of deception and a history of inferior (and fraudulent) manufacturing. I don’t want Chinese drywall and I don’t want Chinese cars.
Nah, you’re thinking Japanese. They’re the ones who cover failures up to save face.
You mention inferior metal: Toyota, Honda and Mazda all used sub-standard steel and aluminum with falsified testing data from Kobe Steel for decades. The US outright banned most imports of graded bolts from Japan a number of years ago because a large number of them didn’t meet standards.
Nissan and Subaru shipped cars skipping legally required inspections for a decade. Mitsubishi hid a problem about wheels coming off until multiple bystanders were killed, then they went bankrupt and had to be bailed out for faking fuel economy numbers.
Don’t forget Toyota’s acceleration problems and denial ($1.2 billion fine), and the whole thing with exploding airbags ($1 billion fine for Takata, $200 million fine for Honda).
@Sam: Amen, amen, AMEN!!! Well said and after I worked at a dealer that sold Buick and Cadillac and GMC next to Honda’s for 12 long years, I can attest to what you say. There will never be a Japanese brand vehicle in my driveway, ever.
I know mechanics at each of those aforementioned Japanese car companies and they tell horror stories. Fixing issues during regular oil changes and not making TABs or not documenting so they don’t get recalled, they call it prevention…but don’t share the information
The metal is thinner than US made.
But, China is no better. Example, the top retail store sells US brand mechcanical tools such as hand drills and stuff made in China with inferior parts to sell for less while the hadware stores the same brand mechanical hand drill made in the USA and cost a little more.
They also copy US products made in China and sell for less…
Can’t imagine the Envision parts…no thanks.
@Race57: As I’ve said before on here, I worked with Honda’s for 12 very long years. I too have stories and the techs at the dealership could tell many as well. Same with a buddy of mine who has been at a Toyota store for over 30 years now. He loves it because he makes good money and doesn’t care, but he’s told me many a stories as well.
But the point I wanted to touch on is the “methods” the Japanese use to avoid the recalls, etc just like you said. One of the things I found out about Toyota is that they will have an issue and instead of issuing a bulletin or recall, they send the owners a coupon for a free oil change and car wash. Get them in and fix the issues secretly and the customer never knows. Of course, they are happy because Toyota gave them another free LOF and wash! Sheep. Total sheep! And it just shows how slimy the Japanese ways are. As the old saying in Japan goes: “If it stinks, put a lid on it”.
when will it be announced that its coming to North America?
Check the Chinese calendar, I believe it’s the month of the rat!
get a life.
I’m so disappointed in those that are sharing their racist views. Shame on you. Asia has reliable vehicles. Sooo disappointing that I’m living amongst ignorance and hate. 🙁
Ok Eileen… 🙁
Love our problem-free 2019 Envision! Traded off our noisy Chevy Equinox. I had to replace the timing chain ($1600😒) on our Equinox at 60k, so this was a easy choice to a up step to a Buick!
[ now the rest of the story – Paul Harvey voice] I’ve consistently purchased Jeep, Chrysler, Dodge and other GM vehicles my entire life!
Imagine my shock three days after purchase while at dinner with friends, he says:”you know that is made in China?” I about puked my pizza!🤢 Who would have thought?
See, my parents, my brother, AND as well as (yes) ME worked for GM and the UAW!
I know, my mistake of not researching country of origin on the VIN….but is a dang GM! Lesson learned. I understand some small little boxy car…but a luxury Buick?!
So, thought I’d trade it for a Jeep first chance I get, but we have grown to like it, the quality is outstanding! Lots f room and good gas mileage.
I feel like a hypocrite….but I look at my TVs, phones, appliances….what can I trade these in for?
Quite the predicament, I own 3 other Dodge and Chryslers.
Mac: Thanks for the honest thoughts. I too find myself with those feeling many times with any purchases. One of the things I’ve done in the past was to research where the profits go from a sale. I’ve also taken into account the world-wide industry this has become. So for me, my priority list is: 1. But an American brand assembled in the USA if I can. 2. Buy an American brand assembled to the north or south of us. 3. Buy an American brand assembled overseas. 4. If buying a car and none of the above are options, look at a used American brand car.
I have a 2021 Buick Envision on order…the salesman at the dealership said it is
being made in S Korea…not thrilled it is not US but, at least it is not China…
Can we use any other engine besides the 3.6 GM has in EVERYTHING? Other than that, looks like a nice (much needed) addition to the Buick family.
When will the Envision be available with Super Cruise?
