The all-new 2021 Envision strengthens Buick’s premium SUV-only lineup, with more of the design, connectivity and safety features that resonate with today’s highly-discerning customers.
Along with the recent launch of the Encore GX, the new Envision will help to expand Buick’s reach in the fast-growing compact SUV segment.
“The all-new 2021 Envision is a tremendous opportunity for the brand,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president, Global Buick and GMC. “With strong, differentiated designs, and a combination of advanced technologies and premium appointments, it will stand apart in one of the industry’s most competitive segments.”
Building on the success of the previous generation, the new Envision is lower and wider, with proportions and styling that combine the expressiveness of a car with the practicality of an SUV. And, for the first time, the new Envision offers customers unique and distinct personas, including Sport Touring and Avenir.
Additional highlights include:
The 2021 Envision displays contemporary styling that is the most expressive of Buick’s sculptural design language.
“The new Envision has a more athletic presence that is full of character,” said Helen Emsley, executive director, Global Buick and GMC Design.
The three trims – Preferred, Essence and Avenir – each incorporate specific design features. The Preferred and Essence trims have an available Sport Touring package that embodies a more agile appearance with darkened exterior touches and 20-inch wheels with a darkened finish.
All models feature LED headlamps and taillamps and daytime running light signatures, as well as a welcome/walkaway lighting animation, which activates when using the key fob.
Envision designers had one overriding objective with the new SUV’s interior: Provide customers with a sense of reward in their everyday driving.
“The new Envision’s cabin is welcoming, with a comfortable and premium environment intended to make the driver and passengers feel like every excursion is an occasion,” said Rob Cameron, design manager, Global Buick and GMC. “All of the elements are designed to celebrate what customers use the most on their drives today.”
At the heart of the Envision’s new interior is its driver-centric instrument panel, which is tilted toward the driver for a better, clearer view. The panel blends technology and convenience, including Buick’s first available 10.2-inch-diagonal infotainment touchscreen.
The interior also features an all-new, versatile center console that incorporates:
A range of seating appointments, in light and dark color themes, are available, including perforated leather on Essence. Heated front seats are standard on Essence and available on Preferred.
Additional interior features include:
The 2021 Envision will also offer Buick’s first available 10.2-inch-diagonal touchscreen infotainment system, and includes in-vehicle apps, such as available Alexa Built-in, as well as Buick-exclusive apps – Reese’s Book Club (curated by Reese Witherspoon) and NCAA March Madness. Wireless charging, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are also offered.
The new Envision is purposefully contented with standard and available active safety and driver assistance technologies designed to help monitor the vehicle’s surroundings and alert the driver to potential hazards — and, in some cases, take action to help avoid a threat.
The Buick Driver Confidence Plus package offers nine standard active safety features, including:
Additional available driver assistance technologies include HD Surround Vision, Enhanced Automatic Parking Assist, Adaptive Cruise Control, Head-up Display and more.
The Avenir is Buick’s ultimate expression of refinement and is now being offered on the Envision for the first time.
The Envision Avenir is distinguished by an exclusive mesh grille design, with tinted chrome trim and unique 20-inch wheels with a Pearl Nickel finish.
