General Motors is now officially launching the all-new second-generation 2021 Buick Envision, offering new styling, new cabin features and technology, and for the first time for the Envision nameplate, a new range-topping Avenir trim level.
Buick announced the launch of the new 2021 Envision in a press release published earlier today. As GM Authority was the first to report, the first units of the 2021 Buick Envision began arriving at ports in December, with units now arriving at dealers. Production takes place at the GM China (SAIC) Jinqiao plant in Shanghai, China.
The 2021 Buick Envision continues to be offered as a compact four-door crossover utility vehicle (CUV), and features new styling with a wider, lower stance influenced by the 2018 Buick Enspire concept vehicle. Highlights include a sleeker front fascia with narrow headlamps and a taught, horizontal grille. The new proportions lend the crossover a more elegant aesthetic, and each of the three trim levels (Preferred, Essence, and Avenir) incorporate their own unique styling touches. LED lighting can be found front to back.
Inside, the 2021 Buick Envision features a new cabin design with Buick’s first available 10.2-inch diagonal infotainment screen. There’s also support for Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa, plus a raft of modern safety features, including Automatic Emergency Braking, Front Pedestrian Braking, Lane Keep Assist, and Forward Collision Alert.
In terms of the mechanical specs, the 2021 Buick Envision employs the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gas engine. Output is rated at 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, with a nine-speed automatic transmission in place for cog swaps. The Envision offers FWD as standard, as well as AWD with electronically controlled twin-clutch operation as an available option. Under the skin, the 2021 Buick Envision rides on the GM E2 platform.
The all-new 2021 Buick Envision is on sale now. Pricing starts at $32,995, including destination.
