New 2021 Buick Envision Is Strikingly Attractive

Real styling, loads of technology – the 2021 Buick Envision is promising.


  • New Envision will share the Cadillac XT4’s underpinnings.

  • Included will be a battery of safety features.

  • It will be the first Buick to offer a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system.


We’ll be brutally honest and say that the current Buick Envision, introduced in 2016, is one of the least interesting or appealing “luxury” SUVs available on the market today. Its styling, if we call it that, is as exciting as watching paint dry and the driving experience, even with the optional turbocharged 2.0-litre turbo engine is anything but energizing. This new 2021 Buick Envision reads as though it will be the exact opposite.

There was a time perhaps, in Buick’s history, when this was the way. Recently, however, Buick’s demonstrated that they can build a vehicle that is fun to drive. Sadly, when they got it right, the Regal that is, it died… Even so, we must proclaim: Long live the new 2021 Buick Envision.

Our excitement comes from the fact that the new Buick SUV will be based in the Cadillac XT4, rely on its platform and powertrain including AWD, 2.0-litre turbo and 9-speed automatic transmission. Furthering our enthusiasm is that the new 2021 Envision is the most attractive Buick since the Regal, or more precisely, the TourX wagon. The new Envision sports a bold new front fascia and wonderful proportions. We assume the Envision in the images is the Avenir trim but even so, we like the new look.

It will also feature a host of new tech including a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system with in-vehicle apps, such as Amazon Alexa, Spotify, Pandora, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. As well, the Envision will offer available safety and driver assistance technologies including automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist, rear park assist, and much more.

More information, including pricing, will be shared later this year.
