2021 Buick Envision Preview

Buick Envision fans will be happily surprised when they discover the 2021 Buick Envision at dealerships like the Rexburg Buick dealer. The 2021 Envision is updated with sporty styling that's even more attractive than last year's model. The Envision gets a bolder stance, with proportions that are lower and wider. The final specifications for this luxury compact SUV aren't available as of this writing, but we'll go over what we know in this preview.

According to the Rexburg Buick dealership, the 2021 Buick Envision will come in five trim levels, listed as Select, Preferred, Essence, Premium and the new top-of-the-line Avenir. The 2021 Envision is equipped with a turocharged2.0-liter four-cylinder engine mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission. We're unsure whether this will be the same unit found under the hood of last year's Envision. That block was good for 252 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque.

It's still too early for EPA-estimated fuel economy figures. In the 2020 Envision, the 2.0-liter turbo-four engine was rated at 22 mpg city/29 mpg highway with front-wheel drive, while AWD models checked in with 21 mpg city/27 mpg highway.* The ratings for the 2021 Buick Envision should at least equal these numbers.

If he'd been a car guy instead of a football coach, he might have said that while exterior styling sells cars, it's ultimately the interior design that matters more. And he probably would have liked what Buick has done with the new Envision."
