The online configurator tool for the 2021 Buick Envision officially launched on the automaker’s website this week, allowing users to customize their own version of the new compact crossover.
As GM Authority reported previously, pricing for the second-generation Buick Envision starts at $32,995 for the entry-level Preferred trim level including destination. Moving to the next trim level, the mid-range Essence, sees the price swell to $36,995. The range-topping Avenir model, meanwhile, starts at $41,200 with destination.
All 2021 Buick Envision models come standard with front-wheel-drive, though a twin-clutch all-wheel-drive system is available across the board for a $1,800 price premium.
The only available engine in the 2021 Buick Envision is a turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gas engine, which produces 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Power is routed through a standard GM nine-speed automatic transmission.
We went ahead and configured our own 2021 Buick Envision using the newly launched configurator tool to get a feel for the available trim levels, exterior and interior colors and optional equipment. Our example vehicle is an Avenir trim level finished in the Cinnabar Metallic exterior color (a $495 option) with Whisper Beige interior upholstery. It also features twin-clutch all-wheel-drive and the available Technology Package II, which adds a Rear Camera Mirror Washer, LED headlamps, a Rear Camera Mirror, Adaptive Cruise Control, Continuous Damping Control (CDC), Enhanced Automatic Parking Assist, Enhanced Automatic Emergency Braking, and a Welcome/Walkaway animation at an added cost of $1,965. The price tag for our example Envision came to $43,690.
The first examples of the 2021 Buick Envision began arriving at ports in early December 2020. The compact crossover rides on the GM E2 platform and is built at the GM Jinqiao plant in Shanghai, China for export to North America and for local consumption in China.
