All-New Buick Envista To Make World Debut This Month33
GM Authority reported in June that the upcoming Buick Envista was leaked in China, where authorities first revealed the name and design of this future Buick crossover. Now, we know that the all-new Envista will make its world debut later this month in the Asian country.
SAIC-GM, General Motors’ main joint venture in China, has just announced that it will reveal an all-new Buick crossover at the 2022 Chengdu Motor Show – which will open from August 26th to September 4th in the Chinese city. Though the automaker didn’t mention it directly, sources familiar with the matter say that model will be the Buick Envista.
As such, the all-new Buick Envista will be the second next-generation product of the 12 new vehicles Buick will introduce in China by 2025, following the new Buick GL8 Century MPV that the brand revealed in early June. The Envista is a new compact model that will expand Buick’s crossover portfolio in the Chinese market by positioning itself between the Buick Encore GX and Buick Envision S.
As the leaked images revealed, and as we directly confirmed by capturing a prototype of the model in Detroit last month, the all-new Buick Envista will introduce a coupe-style crossover format with a low roofline and prominent tailgate unheard of in Buick’s current utility vehicle portfolio. Additionally, the Envista will notably be the first production crossover to adopt Buick’s new brand identity.
Based on the same variant of GM’s VSS-F platform pioneered by the upcoming Chevy Seeker, the Buick Envista will feature the latest evolution of Buick’s design language with new front styling, featuring a large lower grille as well as the shark nose that supports the new logo and forms the split headlamps. Its body measures 182.6 inches in length and rides on a 106.3-inch wheelbase.
The all-new Buick Envista crossover will make its world debut at the end of next week during the 2022 Chengdu Motor Show, where the next-generation crossover will be shown for the first time to the press and general public in China – which would be its main market. However, it is worth noting that GM filed a trademark application for the Buick Envista name with the United States Patent and Trademark Office in 2019.

It’s almost a sedan.
Kind of like that BMW model (not sure which one) and I think MB has one too. Sort of a jacked up hatch.
seems to be another boring vehicle
looks to much like a Volvo
I’m thinking it looks more like an off-road Saab … cringe worthy IMO.
So GM Authority has reported that, once the Buick Encore is dropped, Buick’s lineup would stay at four vehicles with the addition of the Buick Envision GX. Is that still the case or will the Envista be added instead?
If they do add this it is ready the 3 usb’s on the tailgate is there already.
That’s the least of the design problems with this thing.
That interior looks DOA already…..Lets Hope GM has a better and way more Modern interior than that.
Those Rotary Knobs have to be from like the 90’s
I prefer rotary knobs, don’t have to look to make an adjustment, they are safer than touch screen.
They can do rotary Knobs which is completely outdated but just as long as it is not the ones pictured….those legit look like they’re from a 90’s Impala. Lol
Somehow you didn’t get the memo that everyone wants knobs.
Somehow you didn’t read what I wrote….Knobs are fine I guess just as long as it isn’t the ones pictured. Those look like they came out of a 90’s GM Parts Bin.
But if you actually looks at most modern vehicles they utilize Toggles and smaller Dials. Those HVAC Controls are simply awful.
yep, a wheel is round and works fine, if would be square do no know
I don’t think this is the North American Envista. I could be (hope) wrong. This just doesn’t look like it’s styled for a US market.
All buicks are chinese
Lost my loyalty to those making US cars.
BMW, Honda, subaru made in Indiana, NC.
GM doesnt have a product plan for cars.
Don, if divert your eyes to the top of the page you will see PRODUTION STATUS if you click on that link, it will show you all of the GM plants. Not all Buicks are made in China. Yes BMW, Honda, Subaru, Toyota Nissan, Mitsubishi, Mercedes, Volkswagen build cars in the US, but not all of the foreign manufacturers make what they sell here. A Toyota Prius is sold here but is made in Japan, just one example.
When did S Korea become part of China?
Good looking car but lacks something.
Needs some ventiports or something.
It’s important to note that Buick will reveal 2 new ICE models in the U.S. by the end of this year, per Duncan Aldred, VP of Global Buick. It’s not clear if the Envista will be one of them…
American company does Chinese imitation of Japanese car design…calls it a Buick. My head hurts.
This car looks outstanding. Huge upgrade to the buick lineup if it comes to north America. Buick already has a lot of value for its price point. Id trade in my x1 for this… The better maintenance cost is worth it alone.
Should have kept the Cruze
And the Volt.
Poor Buick Division it is now a foreign vehicle …Thanks ( mary ) for not putting AMERICAN workers too work
Buick=gm’s GEO Division of the 2000s
Hey, Buick: Make your US-market cars & crossovers in the USA, not China. Otherwise, I will stick with my LaCrosse.
Don’t forget to look at the label on your shoes, your clothes, your cellphone, your computer, your small appliances, your tools, your TV, etc? Have I left anything out?
Big difference between a $20 pair of shoes or a $200 phone and a $40000 vehicle that could be profitably built in the United States.
BTW, in case you did not know, China is the USA ‘s biggest enemy.
I like it.
