General Motors recently released the first official images of the refreshed 2024 Buick Envision, providing a look at the revised exterior and new interior, as well as information on the compact crossover’s latest tech features. To that latter point, the refreshed 2024 Buick Envision will offer the GM Super Cruise system, an important update for the nameplate, and the Buick brand in general. In fact, the refreshed 2024 Buick Envision will be the first Buick model in North America to offer Super Cruise.
For those readers who may be unaware, the GM Super Cruise system is the automaker’s proprietary semi-autonomous driver assist tech, enabling the driver to remove their hands from the steering wheel during extended periods of driving. The NHTSA rates the GM Super Cruise system as a Level 2 autonomous technology, qualifying it as a driver assist, as opposed to a fully autonomous system.
Super Cruise was first offered in 2017 with the 2018 Cadillac CT6 luxury sedan, but has since expanded to a variety of different GM models, including the Cadillac CT5, Cadillac CT4, Cadillac Escalade, GMC Hummer EV, Chevy Bolt EUV, Chevy Silverado 1500, Chevy Tahoe, and others. GM states it will offer Super Cruise on a total of 22 GM models by the end of the 2023 calendar year.
That includes the refreshed 2024 Buick Envision crossover. Critically, customers will be able to activate the system on more than 400,000 miles of road throughout the U.S. and Canada, with the 2024 Buick Envision offering the system’s full range of availability. Other GM models, like the Cadillac XT6 and Chevy Bolt EUV, won’t offer the full 400,000-mile Super Cruise update, per previous GM Authority coverage.
Additional details on the refreshed 2024 Buick Envision are set to be released later in the year. Production begins in October, per an exclusive GM Authority report.
