Just as in the U.S., the 2021 Buick Envision will be offered in Preferred, Essence and Avenir trim levels in Canada. Prices will start at $37,598 including destination for the entry-level Preferred trim with front-wheel drive, while the Preferred trim level with all-wheel drive will start at $39,998. The Essence is offered with AWD only in Canada and will start at $41,298, while the range-topping Avenir will also offer AWD as standard and will start at $46,298.
Buyers can also add the Sport Touring Package to the Essence and Avenir trim levels at a cost of $1,295. The Sport Touring Package rounds up items such as dark exterior trim and dark 20-inch alloy wheels.
The 2021 Buick Envision actually undercuts the previous-generation 2020 model, which started at $38,793 including destination and freight charges and a $495 mandatory paint fee. The previous-generation Envision came standard with AWD, however, whereas the next-gen model offers a base FWD variant.
The only engine on offer in the 2021 Buick Envision is the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY rated at 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, paired to a GM nine-speed automatic transmission. Production for the crossover, which rides on the GM E2 platform, takes place at the GM China (SAIC) Jinqiao plant in Shanghai, China.
“The all-new 2021 Envision is an incredible opportunity for Buick Canada,” Buick Canada Brand Director Michael MacPhee said in a prepared statement. “The Envision will be in Canada’s largest segment in the industry and we are confident the SUV’s strong design and advanced technology will make it stand apart from its competitors.”
Standard equipment on the entry-level Preferred trim levels includes QuietTuning technology with Active Noise Cancellation and an eight-inch color touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
