Last May, Buick lifted the veil on the 2021 Envision. At the time, General Motors had revealed very few details.
While the new generation of the model arrives at dealerships right now, the American manufacturer revealed a series of details about it during a presentation to which The Car Guide has been invited. Remember that within the range of Buick, the Envision is positioned between the Encore GX and Enclave.
The 2021 Buick Envision will be powered by a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine developing 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet. This mechanism was offered as an option under the hood of the older model generation, but Buick now offers it with all versions.
A nine-speed automatic transmission will direct power to the front wheels or all four wheels depending on the trim chosen. Moreover, note that Buick announces a consumption of 10.0 L / 100 km in the city and 7.6 L / 100 km on the highway for a front-wheel drive version. The ratings are respectively 10.5 and 8.2 L / 100 km for a version equipped with the four-wheel drive system.
During the virtual presentation, Buick also announced that the new version of the Envision could be delivered with an infotainment system paired with a 10-inch touchscreen. In addition to compatibility with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Buick even announces a feature related to Amazon Alexa.
In terms of safety, this utility vehicle can be equipped with a package including automatic braking, frontal collision warning, automatic high beams and rear cross traffic warning.
