General Motors introduced the U.S.-spec 2024 Buick Envista in April, revealing the Tri-Shield brand’s newest small crossover following a world debut at the 2022 Chengdu Motor Show last August. Now, according to Buick, the 2024 Envista has the highest residual value of any Buick model in recent history.
As an example, a 2024 Buick Envista leased for 36 months with a 12,000-mile allocation has a residual value of 60 percent.
For the sake of comparison, Buick’s highest residual value was typically in the 40-percent range, at least historically speaking. That figure, however, has been improving as of late. For example, the residual value for a refreshed 2024 Buick Encore GX with a 36-month lease and 12,000-mile allocation is in the low-50-percent range. Now, however, the 2024 Buick Envista is offering even higher residual values than that.
Per previous GM Authority coverage, the 2024 Chevy Trax is also offering impressively high residual values. For example, the residual value for a 2024 Chevy Trax with a 36-month lease and 12,000-mile allocation is 63 percent.
For those readers who may have missed it, GM Authority was the first to report that the Envista was under consideration for the North American market, with GM President Mark Reuss confirming its sale in the U.S. last year.
In terms of styling, the 2024 Buick Envista incorporates design language inspired by the Buick Wildcat EV concept, and incorporates a coupe-like roofline, sleek profile, LED checkmark lighting signatures, and standard wheel sizing up to 19 inches. The trim level lineup includes the base-level Preferred, Sport Touring (ST), and at the top of the range, the new Avenir.
Inside the cabin, the 2024 Buick Envista offers upwards of 19 inches of screen real estate, while a range of active and passive safety features are included as standard. Motivation is sourced from the turbocharged 1.2L I3 LIH gasoline engine, which is rated at 136 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque, while the GM VSS-F platform provides the underpinnings. Production takes place at the GM Changwon plant in South Korea.
Pricing starts at $23,495.
