We’re still a few months away from the launch of the 2021 Buick Envision but we’re already beginning to learn a lot of about this all-new premium compact crossover. GM Authority was the first to tell you all about the new Envision’s suspension and all wheel drive system, and we’re now back to outline the 2021 Buick Envision trim level structure.
A total of four trim levels will be on offer for the 2021 Buick Envision, including Envision (base), followed by Preferred, Essence and range-topping Avenir. In fact, it will be the very first time that the Avenir trim level will be available on a Buick Envision.

All trims come standard in front-wheel-drive, and all but the base trim offer all-wheel-drive as an option.

Sources tell us that initial ordering and launch will be focused around the top-most three trims.
Pricing for any of the 2021 Buick Envision trim levels is currently not available, but sources have told us to expect a starting price of $34,000 for the base model. Exact pricing figures will be announced closer to launch.
The all-new, 2021 Buick Envision rides on the GM E2 platform shared most directly with the first-generation Cadillac XT4. Power will come from the turbocharged 2.0L I-4 LSY engine making 230 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque.
The GM nine-speed automatic transmission will do shifting duty. GM has confirmed that the vehicle will be assembled at the Jinqiao plant in Shanghai, China for the Chinese domestic market, as well as for export to North America. The model is set to begin arriving on dealer lots some time in the beginning of the 2021 calendar year.
