Equipment and powertrain specs and trim levels of the 2021 Buick Envision have been revealed in the model’s order guide. Pricing will follow.
General Motors redesigned the Buick Envision crossover for the next model year.
The standard vehicle comes with a 2.0-liter inline turbo-four engine that delivers 230 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque via a 9-speed automatic gearbox and front-wheel drive. All-wheel drive is optional. Wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are standard for the whole range.
There are four trim levels for the 2021 model: Base, Preferred, Essence, Avenir. The range-topping Envision offers a head-up display, 20-inch wheels, front seats with heating and cooling.
The first vehicles will be available at U.S. dealers in early 2021.
The current 2020 Buick Envision is priced between $33,500-43,600. It fits somewhere between the affordable and luxury categories. The crossover offers lots of standard features and costs less than its competitors.
The vehicle has a base 2.5-liter 193-hp naturally aspirated inline-four engine (dropped for 2021), and a 2.0-liter turbocharged 252-hp/295 lb-ft four-cylinder mill as an option.
Good fuel economy estimates, a potent engine option, an intuitive infotainment system are among its pros. But its base engine is dull, the model is less sporty than rivals, and its cabin is not as upscale as that of competitors.
