Exclusively photographed on North American roads for the first time by GM Authority a few days ago, the Tri-Shield brand’s new model arrives in North America from GM China (SAIC)’s Jinqiao plant in Shanghai. The all-new Envision was launched in China in July as the Envision S, since the Envision name continues be used for the first-generation Envision, which is still on sale there.
Based on the GM E2 platform, the 2021 Buick Envision is closely related to the sixth-generation Buick Regal (still sold in China in sedan form), the ninth-generation Chevrolet Malibu, the Holden Commodore NG and the second-generation Opel Insignia, which is marketed in the U.K. as the Vauxhall Insignia. The Envision is also a cousin of the third-generation Buick LaCrosse, which rides on the long-wheelbase version of the E2 platform.
The 2021 Buick Envision is available in four trim levels – Envision, Preferred, Essence and the range-topping Avenir. The only engine offered is the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline unit which produces 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. It is mated exclusively to GM’s nine-speed automatic transmission. All versions are available with FWD, and AWD is offered as an option on all but the base model.
