Certain 2023 Buick Envision configurations have received mildly revised fuel economy numbers, GM Authority has learned.
Going forward, the 2023 Buick Envision with the only available turbocharged 2.0L LSY gasoline engine and front-wheel-drive will have a fuel economy rating of 23 mpg city, 31 mpg highway and 26 mpg combined. This is down from the 2022 Envision’s rating of 24 mpg city, 31 mpg highway and 26 mpg combined.
|2023 city/highway/combined||2022 city/highway/combined||+/- 2023|
|2.0L I4 FWD||23/31/26||24/31/26||-1/0/0|
|2.0L I4 AWD||22/29/25||22/29/25||0/0/0|
To be clear, the 2023 model year Buick Envision is not less efficient than the 2022 model year Envision, but has simply received a revised fuel economy rating from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. It’s not clear why the EPA has applied a lower city MPG rating here, although the agency will sometimes adjust or alter its test procedures or the way it rates vehicles.
Production of the Buick Envision takes place at the GM Jinqiao plant in Beijing, China. This facility shifted to production of the 2023 model-year Envision on April 4th, 2022. It’s unclear when 2023 Envision units will begin arriving at dealerships in the United States.
The 2023 Buick Envision represents the third model year of the crossover’s second generation. GM has decided to drop the Satin Steel Metallic (paint code GIR) and Burnished Bronze Metallic (paint code GR8) exterior colors from the Envision order books for the 2023MY, both of which will likely be indirectly replaced by two new colors.
GM’s turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine, which is rated at 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, comes standard in the 2023 Buick Envision. The four-cylinder is paired with the GM nine-speed automatic transmission, with front-wheel drive standard and all-wheel drive available for a price premium.
Pricing for the 2022 Buick Envision started at $32,695 for the entry-level Preferred trim level with FWD. Pricing for the 2023 Envision is not yet available.
