The Buick Envision May See a Larger Variant Called the GX

May 6th, 2022 by


There may be a new variant in the works for the 2022 Buick Envision. The crossover SUV recently received some updates, but this new trim could see an increase in the Envision’s overall size. As of late, Buick has been focusing on producing its own electric vehicle in a bid to compete with other automakers. Although it hasn’t been made clear what kind of EV Buick is aiming for, the automaker has been teasing concepts and dropping hints about the type of EV it may produce. We’ll have to wait for more information about that, but for now, we have news that Buick will be working on a new Buick Envision GX trim. We’ve seen this GX name used with the Buick Encore GX, so this may be a great addition for Envision fans. We’ll take a look at the new trim and see what it will add for consumers.

Possible Buick Envision GX in the Works

Buick may release a new Buick Envision GX trim. This news comes after the fact that there is a Chinese version of the Envision called the Buick Envision Plus. This Envision trim features a larger wheelbase as well as more cargo volume. Buick has released a larger version of the Encore and called it the Encore GX. We’re not sure if the automaker will do something similar, but it is very likely. This GX trim will give consumers more space and it will also offer a slight redesign for the exterior.

The 2022 Buick Envision currently sits atop the General Motors E2 platform. It features a turbocharged 2.0L LSY I4 engine that’s capable of 228 horsepower and 258lb-ft of torque. It gives drivers quite a bit of performance and together with the nine-speed automatic transmission, owners can enjoy a smooth riding experience. The base Envision starts at an MSRP of $31,800 (plus destination fee) while the highest-end trim, the Avenir, starts at $40,400 (plus destination fee). We’re not sure where this new Envision GX trim will fit, but most likely its pricing will start under the Avenir trim.

The Chinese version of the GX, the Buick Envision Plus, has an increased wheelbase of 8-inches. It also offers seven seats and has 58 cubic feet of cargo volume. The second-row seating can be adjusted and there are also 9-inch rails for easy entry into the third row. For its exterior, it features a more aggressive style with a dark red color. We’ll have to wait and see if Buick releases this trim in the US, but it’s likely that we will see it come to the states with the GX namesake. For now, we’ll keep our eyes and ears open.
