The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has released fuel economy figures for the 2021 Buick Envision with all-wheel-drive.
When equipped with a turbocharged GM 2.0L LSY four-cylinder engine, GM nine-speed automatic transmission and optional AWD, the 2021 Buick Envision has an EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings of 22 mpg city, 29 mpg highway and 25 mpg combined. The EPA also estimates 2021 Buick Envision owners will spend around $1,350 a year on fuel.
The EPA has yet to release estimated fuel economy figures for the front-wheel-drive 2021 Buick Envision, but it’s likely the FWD version of the crossover will be a bit more efficient than the AWD model. Only base-level 1SV trims will not be available with AWD, as the Preferred, Essence, and Avenir trim levels will all offer it for a price premium. The range-topping Avenir model will also get an exclusive twin-clutch AWD system.
The standard 2.0L LSY engine in the Envision is rated at 230 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. The redesigned crossover rides on the GM E2 platform, which is shared with the Cadillac XT4, and will be assembled at the GM Jinqiao plant in Shanghai, China. The vehicle is expected to arrive at U.S. and Canadian Buick dealers in early 2021 after order books for the crossover opened back in April.
General Motors has yet to confirm pricing for the 2021 Buick Envision, however they are expected to start at around $34,000 in the U.S. GM Authority previously uncovered the prices for certain configurations for the crossover, which indicated it will start at just over $34,000 for a Preferred trim level with the Comfort and Convenience Package and extend to at least $44,810 for an Avenir with the Technology Package 2 and a moonroof.
