The 2022 Buick Envision arrives as the second model year of the second-generation nameplate, introducing a variety of changes and updates. Among these is the deletion of the Dark Moon Blue Metallic paint option.
The Dark Moon Blue Metallic paint option is tagged with paint code G59, and was available on all trim levels of the 2021 Buick Envision. The exterior paint option was also available in conjunction with both interior color combos, including Ebony and Whisper Beige with Ebony accents. The Dark Moon Blue Metallic paint option was offered for an extra cost of $495.
Now, with the introduction of the 2022 Buick Envision, Dark Moon Blue Metallic will hit the dustbin, replaced by Sapphire Metallic (paint code GGH).
Further updates for the 2022 model year include new features for the optional Sport Touring Package, including headrests with the Sport Touring logo, red-stitched leather seats, carpeted front floor mats with the Sport Touring logo and rear floor mats, and sport pedals, as GM Authority covered previously.
The exterior of the 2022 Buick Envision will also introduce a new 18-inch wheel design, which replaces the Bright Silver 18-inch wheels offered with the 2021 model year.
Inside, the 2022 Buick Envision will delete the air ionizer feature, while Envision ST models gain all-weather floor liners, all-weather floor mats, and a cargo liner.
As for the mechanical specs, the 2022 Buick Envision will feature the same powerplant as the current 2021 model year, namely the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY, which is rated at 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. The LSY mates to a nine-speed automatic transmission, which motivates either the front wheel as standard, or all four wheels as an available option.
Production of the 2022 Buick Envision will take place at GM China’s (SAIC) Jinqiao plant in Shanghai, China, with production slated to kick off halfway through the 2021 calendar year.
