Get ready for the all-new 2021 Buick Envision compact crossover. This model will introduce numerous upgrades later this year and we can’t wait to see it on the roads. The Envision crossover slots between Enclave and Encore models. However, its arrival on American soil is still not confirmed. Moreover, new Envision could arrive as the next-gen model.
Various changes such as interior overhaul or new exterior paints are clearly suggesting a new-generation Envision. Further speculations are predicting the all-electric variant which is unlikely at this moment. Interestingly, more reliable reports are even mentioning a new name for the Envision crossover. Overall, some radical changes are about to happen and here’s what we know so far.
2021 Envision Exterior Colors, Facelift
New 2021 Buick Envision will host a couple of upgrades. If the next-gen model really arrives, then we should expect more drastic changes. Until its official, new Envision is most likely set for another mid-cycle refreshment. The compact crossover will arrive with the modified front fascia. That includes slightly wider grille and reshaped headlights.
The side profile should gain a more sharper character line and the rear end will also gain a modified bumper. Envision will also get new exterior paints. So far, the Envision offers five different exterior colors and the manufacturer will now provide three new paints. Overall, this crossover looks upright but it is still far from the luxury segment.
Thanks to the numerous trim levels, the new 2021 Buick Envision will remain as versatile as before. The base model offers basic stuff such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. We’d recommend you to skip this entry-level model and move to the next one. Upper trim levels are offering premium Bose sound system, larger displays and a longer list of standard features.
However, it is the range-topping Envision Premium II that offers real luxury. If you want the best possible safety ratings, leather upholstery and much more, this is the trim level for you. The latest reports are saying that this trim level could be renamed into “Avenir.”
The most significant upgrade will happen under the bonnet. The upcoming 2021 Buick Envision will get a new 2.0-liter turbo engine. However, a new model will deliver more power than the current Envision. This turbo variant has been presented in the Enspire concept and Envision will most likely get the very same output.
New powertrain will surely produce around 235 horsepower. What is certain is that the base model will use the same 2.5-liter gasoline engine with 197 horsepower and 190 lb-ft of torque. All Envision models will use the same 9-speed automatic transmission.
2021 Buick Envision Price and Release Date
The all-new crossover will now cost $33,000. The 2021 Buick Envision is available in numerous trim levels and the range-topping model costs around $50,000. New Envision should go on sale later this year. If the Coronavirus outbreak ends in the next month or two, then Envision will be sold this fall. If not, Buick will put its new model on the dealerships in 2021.
