Early next year, GM’s Buick brand will launch the all-new 2021 Envision premium compact crossover. GM Authority was the first to tell you about the new Envision’s suspension system, optional dual-clutch all-wheel drive system, trim level structure and starting price, and dimensions. And now, we’re back with another exclusive, this time to outline 2021 Buick Envision wheel choices for the all-new crossover.
A total of five wheels will be offered on the 2021 Buick Envision in the U.S. market. Two of the five wheels measure 18 inches in diameter, while three are 20-inch units. All five wheel choices are made of aluminum.
Availability varies by trim level. For instance, the 18-inch Bright Silver wheel (RPO Code RER) is standard on the Envision (base) and Preferred models, while the 18-inch Machined Aluminum wheels with Charcoal Metallic finish (REP) is standard on the Essence. Additionally, the 20-inch Q7H wheel is available on Essence with the Technology Package 1 and the 20-inch dark-finish wheel (PYS) are included only with the Sport Touring Package (available only on Preferred and Essence models). Finally, the RTJ wheel is standard on the range-topping Envision Avenir.

Front-wheel drive will be standard on all models, while all-wheel drive will be available on all except for the base trim.

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 be responsible for swapping the cogs.
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.
