The 2021 Buick Envision ushers in an all-new second generation for the nameplate, bringing with it new trims, new styling, more tech features, a new engine, and a new underlying platform. Now, GM Authority has learned from sources familiar with GM’s go-to-market strategy that order banks for the all-new 2021 Buick Envision will open Thursday, August 13th, 2020, for all U.S. Buick dealers.
The model is expected to begin arriving at dealers at the outset of the 2021 calendar year, if not slightly before, barring any upcoming delays from the COVID-19 pandemic.
So far, pricing information has not yet been announced. However, sources have told us to expect a starting price around $34,000. To note, the current 2020 Buick Envision starts at $34,695, including destination.
We’ve also covered the 2021 Buick Envision trim level cadence, which will incorporate four trims total, starting with the base-level Envision, and followed by the Preferred, the Essence, and the Avenir, with the Avenir trim offered as the range-topper of the group. The latest 2021 model year will be the first instance in which the Buick Envision will be offered in an Avenir trim.
Each trim comes standard with FWD, while the Preferred, Essence, and Avenir trims also offer AWD as an available option.
According to GM Authority sources, the initial ordering and launch will focus primarily on the top three trim levels.
As a reminder, the 2021 Buick Envision rides on the GM E2 platform, with production taking place at the Jinqiao plant in Shanghai China, both for the Chinese domestic market, and for export to North America. Providing motivation is the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY engine, which produces 230 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque.
