2024 Buick Envista Revealed With No Direct Lincoln Rival

Buick has been on a roll churning out new products as of late as it moves closer to an all-electric future, including, most recently, the 2024 Encore GX, a small, luxurious crossover. In the meantime, the Lincoln Corsair represents the least expensive model in that luxury brand’s lineup, though the cheapest version of that model is the Standard trim, which starts out at $38,690 following the model’s recent refresh. Now, the 2024 Buick Envista has been revealed, and it too is far less expensive than any Lincoln, with a starting MSRP of $23,495.


The 2024 Buick Envista is positioned as a small, premium crossover at an affordable price point, and will now be sold in the U.S. following its debut at the 2022 Chengdu Motor Show in China last August. In terms of styling, it draws inspiration from the Buick Wildcat EV concept, sporting coupe-like lines and modern, slim lighting elements.

The 2024 Envista will be available in a total of three different trim levels – Preferred, Sport Touring (ST), and Avenir. Wheel options vary per trim, with the ST getting standard black 18-inch units or optional 19-inch wheels, while the range-topping Avenir trim comes equipped with Pearl Nickel 19-inch wheels as standard equipment.


Inside the cabin, the Envista touts multiple screens that span 19 inches diagonally, including an 11-inch infotainment screen. Cargo space comes in at 20.7 cubic-feet behind the rear seat and 42 cubic-feet with the rear seats folded down, while the Buick driver confidence package adds a host of standard advanced driver assist features.


The 2024 Buick Envista is available with one powerplant – GM’s turbocharged 1.2L I-3 LIH engine, which produces 136 horsepower and 162 pound feet of torque in this guise. The brand new, premium crossover will be available to order this summer, with deliveries commencing some time after that.

    Good grief. Ford can’t produce a credible subcompact crossover for $25K, let alone the price premium associated with a Lincoln badge.

    Even if Envista is more flash than substance, it should provoke everyone to be asking of Dearborn why nothing even remotely resembling its value proposition has been forthcoming.

    Brand loyalty enables one to overlook only so much.

      Awe, poor Ford, they can’t even produce a terrible 130 HP Korean-built Chevy Aveo and pretend it’s a Buick.

      What a “value proposition”, it’s a cheap Korean subcompact with pathetic HP and FWD only. If anything, it’ll provoke laughs in Dearborn, laughing at how desperately GM is throwing anything against the wall for Buick and hoping it’ll stick, just like the last 15-25 years.

    Import the Puma from Europe (not China!) as a rebadged Lincoln; in Hybrid and the upcoming Puma EV…create some much needed vision for the Lincoln Brand! This giving you an “opening price point” to the premium small SUV market, plus attracting a younger demographic both male and more importantly female!

    They have ford escape as it’s rival ? Literally same body structure

    Lincoln can’t even produce a 2023 Corsair these days. Production is non-existant. I don’t care about re-badged, cheap imports. I’m still waiting for my 2023 Cosair hybrid from Kentucky!

  5. Mick1

    Bring back the Ford C Max as a rebadged Lincoln. That’s real competition.

  6. Mf

    Imagine how cheap and crappy this thing will be to hit that price point. Buick really only exists as a Chinese market brand these days. They should close it in the US.
