“The all-new 2021 Envision is a tremendous opportunity for the brand,” said Duncan Aldred, the vice president for 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.”
The Envision’s Buick Infotainment System comes with a standard 8-inch touch screen. It’s also the first Buick to offer the brand’s new 10.2-inch screen as an available feature. With both options, the new interior design tilts the screen and instrument panel so they’re easier to see. Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard, and Alexa Built-In is available.
All Envision trims now come equipped with Buick Driver Confidence Plus. This package of nine standard safety technologies includes Following Distance Indicator, Forward Collision Alert, Automatic Emergency Braking and Front Pedestrian Braking, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, Rear Park Assist, and IntelliBeam automatic high beams.
New design and features
On the exterior, the 2021 Envision shows off lower, wider, and more dynamic proportions. Five 18-inch and 20-inch wheel designs are available. All three trims come standard with LED headlamps, taillamps, and daytime running lights. There’s also a new animated lighting sequence to greet drivers when they approach.
New interior touches include a dual-wing center armrest, a storage compartment below the instrument panel, and an available panoramic moonroof. The Envision also offers a variety of light-themed and dark-themed interior color schemes to choose from. A new available air ionizer with air quality indicator ensures that the atmosphere stays healthy and breathable.
