The 2021 Buick Envision is coming completely new and as we are getting closer to its launch, we are also getting more information about it. With the latest info update, the new model looks quite promising. We are about to see a completely new crossover, which should finally be able to compete with premium models in this class. Of course, we are talking about the compact luxury crossover, where you can find models like Acura RDX, Lincoln Corsair, Infiniti QX50 etc.
From what we know so far about the new model, it looks it will be way more luxurious than before. We are not talking only about materials and cabin quality, but also about things like ride quality, comfort, sound insulation and similar things. At this point, it will be offered with just one engine, though we could see some expansion in the future. We expect to see the 2021 Buick Envision on the market really soon.
2021 Buick Envision Redesign
This redesign brings a whole plethora of novelties. One of the first things that we should mention is the platform. The new model rides on an E2 architecture and shares a lot of mechanics with the Cadillac XT4. The new model features around 109.4 inches in wheelbase, which is 1.1 inches more compared to the previous generation. Of course, this will have a positive effect on the amount of interior space, and we can say that these are quite typical dimensions for the segment.
This is where the 2021 Buick Envision comes with the most significant changes, in our humble opinion. In terms of aesthetics, the previous generation was stuck in some other era of the automotive industry, while the new styling brings this crossover back to the present day. The new model combines sleek lines with a slight dose of sharpness, which gives that modern flair. The overall shape is typical for an SUV, while it looks the new model still sits slightly closer to the ground compared to the previous generation.
On the inside, you can instantly notice a significant improvement over the previous generation. First of all, everything looks way more upscale. This starts with aesthetics and also includes much finer materials than before. We can clearly say that the new 2021 Buick Envision can compete in this aspect with almost every model in the segment.
Besides nice materials, the new model also features pretty impressive sound insulation, which keeps everything quiet even at highway speeds. Seats are also quite comfortable.
Of course, the new model will also come with loads of standard equipment. Base models will be equipped with an 8-inch touchscreen, while a bigger 10-inch unit will be in the offer as well. Also, you may count on wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, as well as on a full load of advanced safety systems.
2021 Buick Envision Engines
At this point, we are sure about one engine and that would be a new version of a familiar 2.0-liter turbo-four. This new version is good for about 232 horsepower, which is less compared to the previous variant. However, the company claims that the fuel economy has been notably improved. That would really be great, considering that the previous version wasn’t particularly efficient.
The previously base engine, a 2.5-liter naturally-aspirated unit, won’t be in the offer anymore, reports say. However, that doesn’t mean that the 2021 Buick Envision will remain on just one unit in the offer. It looks like we could easily see some more potent versions in the offer, which would confirm the company’s aspiration to be considered as a genuine premium brand. More details should come soon.
2021 Buick Envision Release Date and Price
We expect that the 2021 Buick Envision will arrive soon, though the company is still quiet about a more precise date. From what we know so far, the new model will hit the Chinese market first, while North American drivers could count on the first half of next year. When it comes to the price, base models will probably go around 33.000 dollars. On the other side, range-topping models will probably go over 42.000 dollars.
