Here’s When 2023 Buick Envision Production Will Start22
Production of the 2023 Buick Envision will begin this spring, GM Authority has learned.
The compact crossover, which is expected to remain largely unchanged from the current 2022 model year, will enter production at the GM Jinqiao plant in Beijing, China on April 4th, 2022. The order books for the vehicle initially opened up in December of last year, but production of the nameplate has been severely impacted by the global semiconductor chip shortage, so production is beginning much later than GM initially planned.
The 2023 Buick Envision represents the third model year of the crossover’s second generation. Seeing as the all-new, second-generation Buick Envision was only introduced for the 2021 model year, GM isn’t making any major changes for 2023. As we reported previously, though, the automaker has elected to drop the Satin Steel Metallic (paint code GIR) and Burnished Bronze Metallic (paint code GR8) exterior colors from the order books for 2023, which will likely be indirectly replaced by two new colors. GM has also gotten rid of the In-Vehicle Air Ionizer system, expanded availability for the Continuous Damping Control suspension system and added a new 18-inch wheel option for the 2022 model year.
The crossover will continue to come standard with GM’s turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder LSY gasoline engine, which is rated at 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. The four-cylinder is paired with the GM nine-speed automatic transmission.
Pricing for the 2022 Buick Envision starts at $32,695 for the entry-level Preferred trim level with FWD. 2023 Envision pricing will come to light as its production start date approaches this spring.

To bad the Buick Dealers don’t know about being able to place an order….I was at my local Buick dealer yesterday and he told me can’t order a 2023 until July 2022…..GREAT communication from GM to their dealers
I am just amazed that people just do not care that that thing is built-in CHINA! So sad!
I hope Bidon puts big stiff tariffs on it!!!
No one cares because at the end of the day GM (An AMERICAN company incase you forgot) makes the majority of the profit on the sale of each unit which gets taxed by the US government. The money is coming back to the US. It’s not going to China.
You do realize we send quadruple the amount of money to the Chinese government then what we receive from them.
You do realize this article is about a car…right? I’m not talking about the geopolitics.
You do realize a car made in china by Chinese workers means the Chinese government is profiting. You aren’t that much a douche to think otherwise.
You do realize in my original comment I said the MAJORITY of the profit per sale comes back to the US? If you want to be illiterate at your own expense go for it but don’t drag us down with you.
Who is us? You claimed the money is coming back to the us not china.
Are you bad at reading? Read my original comment where I said “the majority of the profit on the sale of each unit which gets taxed by the US government”. How is that a claim? Are you saying that when a Buick Envision is sold in this country 100% of the profit goes back to China? How delusional are you.
Just Boycott All vehicles Made in China
Who is “Bidon” ? Is he related to that idiot Joe R. Biden 😉 ?
Nice looking vehicle to bad it’s built in China would never buy it for that reason !
Nobody will buy them as they’re made in china,and I certainly do not blame them. But nobody seems to have any problems buying Kia’s and Hyundai’s… they’re not built in North America either.. someone explain that to me… is it a China thing?
They sold 46,450 Envisions last year in the U.S., up from 34,942 the year before, and it’s now second place in sales in its segment.
I bought mine right when they came out, best GM I’ve ever owned. I see more of them than the XT4 as well. They’re actually pretty popular around here. I honestly don’t care where it’s built… almost every single electronic device I own came from there too. It’s ironic too that every American built GM I’ve owned has been complete garbage, but the ones that came from Mexico or China have been the best I own. Wonder why that is. hmmmm….
@sigh You are one the very few that have logical thinking, the sweetspot within GM is a good Buick or GMC and select Cadillacs.
@Mitch people are just pure stupid, if you look anywhere in your house there’s SOMETHING MADE IN CHINA. The argument of “no one will buy it” is furthest from the truth the Envision is literally number 2 in sales in its segment, when will people realize the economy is global not just in your back yard.
Such a shame GM vehicles cannot be assembled inthe USA.
To bad this vehicle is made in Beijing, China and imported back to the US. Stop buying vehicles from Red China.
I think GM missed a huge opportunity here. Why not make a hybrid, or better yet, PHEV variant of this vehicle to compete with the Toyota RAV4 Prime, etc, which have been selling like hotcakes? The vehicle itself is a looker, IMO (I went to a dealership, sat in one, and came close to buying it). However, with GM stating that it’s going “all in” on EV’s, you’d think they’d want to wade into that by offering a hybrid in this segment to compete with other companies.
Seems like a solid vehicle, otherwise, but with gas prices spiking again, a hybrid would have been a great option. Without it, I’ll likely wait.
I came close to trading in my 2011 LaCrosse on an Envision Avenir. Had the dealer came up with $600 more for my trade, it would’ve been a done deal. There were 3 factors that kept me from buying it (other than the $600. Lol): 1. That it was made in China. 2. The interior (dash mainly) was very underwhelming compared to my lacrosse. 3.The only engine option is a 2.0 with only adequate power. A 3.0 like the xt4 or hybrid would’ve been nice.
It’s a beautiful vehicle, but it misses the mark for me.
When will the 2023 Envision Essence be available in the US?
