The 2021 Buick Envision introduces a brand-new second generation for the compact four-door crossover utility vehicle (CUV). Offering sleeker styling and sporting a lower, wider stance than the preceding model, the new Envision looks good, and now, we’re bringing it into focus in the following GM Authority Live Photo Gallery.
The 2021 Buick Envision continues to slot between the Enclave and Encore/Encore GX in the brand’s crossover lineup, and is now available in the popular premium Avenir trim level. As GM Authority covered previously, the new Envision is arriving now, but inventory is low, with less than one unit per dealer currently available.
As for this particular 2021 Buick Envision, it’s equipped with the ST (Sport Touring) package, which is complemented by Summit White paint. The all-new exterior design features premium proportions, plus smooth, curvaceous lines.
The front end rocks a set of horizontal headlamps that are drawn back towards the front fenders and underlined by checkmark-style LED lighting signatures. The grille insert is bisected by a horizontal stying line and Tri-Shield Buick badge, while parallelogram-shaped side intakes complete the bumper. We also spot a unique grille surround and mesh insert included with the ST package.
Further ST package upgrades are seen from the side view, including the 20-inch wheels with a Dark finish. There’s also a set of black roof rails and body-color door handles, all of which is included in the ST package.
Further package details includes a Dark Gloss finish for the lower trim bits, wheel arch moldings, window surrounds, mirror caps, and exhaust bezels.
In back, we spot tail lamps that mimic the shape of the headlamps up front, plus unique ST badging. The lower bumper is equipped with a fake exhaust treatment, a styling cue echoed by the 2022 Buick Enclave and Buick Encore GX.
To note, the Sport Touring package offered with the 2021 Buick Envision is priced at $1,325, and is available as a stand-alone upgrade for the Preferred and Essence trim levels, but not the Avenir. The package requires one of the following exterior colors:
- Ebony Twilight Metallic
- Summit White
- Satin Steel Metallic
- Cinnabar Metallic
Inside, the 2021 Buick Envision features a brand-new cabin design, as well as an available 10-inch diagonal touchscreen, with support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto included.
Engine options are limited to the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gas unit, which produces 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. Output is routed through a nine-speed automatic transmission. Under the skin is GM’s E2 platform. production takes place at the GM China (SAIC) Jinqiao plant in Shanghai, China.
