- the order guide for the redesigned 2021 buick envision crossover is out.
- we now know it will come standard with a 230-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four engine and offer base, preferred, essence, and avenir trim levels.
- the 2021 envision is scheduled to arrive at dealerships early next year.
we already knew that the 2021 buick envision looks far better than its predecessor, and now the new model's official order guide has divulged lots more details. trim levels, standard and optional equipment, and powertrain specs are all included. now the only thing we're waiting to hear about is the price, which will likely be released closer to the envision's on-sale date early next year.
the standard engine across the board is a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four with 230 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. a nine-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive are standard, with all-wheel drive available as an option on all but the base model. this means the new envision is less powerful than its predecessor, which offered an optional turbo 2.0-liter four that made 252 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. the previous model's base 193-hp naturally aspirated 2.5-liter inline-four has been dropped.
base, preferred, essence, and avenir trim levels make up the 2021 envision lineup. wireless apple carplay and android auto are standard on all models, while the avenir offers niceties such as 20-inch wheels, heated and cooled front seats, and a head-up display. we expect the envision to start in the mid-$30,000 range and go up to around $50,000 when fully loaded.
buick says the 2021 envision will begin reaching u.s. dealerships early next year, so keep a look out for more information to come.
