The Buick Envision is all-new for the 2021 model year, ushering in a fresh second generation for the compact crossover utility vehicle (CUV). Now, we are taking a look at pricing details for the new 2021 Envision.
The all-new 2021 Buick Envision lineup kicks off with the Preferred trim level, which starts at $31,800. The mid-range trim is the Essence, which starts at $35,800, while the top trim is the Avenir, which starts at $40,200.
Note that the prices listed here do not include the $1,195 destination freight charge, which, when included, brings the Preferred trim level to $32,995, the Essence trim to $36,995, and the Avenir trim to $41,200.
Standout features for the Preferred trim level include QuietTuning technology with Active Noise Cancellation, as well as wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Meanwhile, the Essence trim comes with 18-inch machined aluminum wheels with a Charcoal Metallic finish, heated front seats, a 10-inch Buick Infotainment system, and a hands-free programmable power liftgate with LED logo projection. The range-topping Avenir features 20-inch aluminum wheels with a Pearl Nickel finish, ventilated front seats and a massage function for the driver’s seat, Front Park Assist, wireless phone charging, and a Bose stereo system.
Outside, the new Envision is lower and wider than the previous model, and rocks a styling treatment that takes cues from the 2018 Buick Enspire concept.
All 2021 Buick Envision trims come standard with front-wheel-drive, while a new twin-clutch all-wheel-drive system will be optional across the range. Pricing info on the new twin-clutch all-wheel-drive system is currently unavailable.
Under the hood, the 2021 Buick Envision features the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gas engine, which produces 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, and connects to a nine-speed automatic transmission. The latest Envision rides on the GM E2 platform, also shared with the first-generation Cadillac XT4. Assembly will take place at the Jinqiao plant in Shanghai, China both for export to North America and for the Chinese domestic market.
