The revamped 2021 Buick Envision Avenir is coming. According to a reliable source, the new model will be released early next year in U.S. We’re finally getting a glimpse of how U.S. version model will look like thanks to Chinese-market version.
The exterior design looks modern and range-topping luxurious Avenir trim offers more standard safety features than any other trim level from this manufacturer. It also uses the same powertrain as the regular one with some mild mechanic improvements.
2021 Buick Envision Avenir Exterior Treatment
Like the Chinese-spec Envision Avenir SUV, the U.S model will use the same design language with mild modifications. However, the new Avenir is looking attractive and is wearing an exclusive grille with a shiny mesh design. It also gets new 18 alloy wheels with Pearl Nickel finish to accentuate the dynamic curves and body lines of the Avenir.
We like the original styling, especially body-color wheel arches that give a sportier look. The overall treatment is pretty much better and surfaces of the exclusive Avenir model leave more impression that the standard one.
Inside, some radical changes are happening. Overall, the new 2021 Buick Envision Avenir will be more tech-happy than its relatively plain predecessor. Interestingly, the same layout is present and the manufacturer added more comfort on the Avenir trim this time.
Generally, stepping into this SUV, one can notice more upscale Avenir signature materials and plenty of techs. Among the upgrades is a new 10-inch touchscreen compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The old model if you can remember, is offered exclusively with an 8.0-inch unit. Powerful moonroof with the push of a button, reward you and your passengers with breathtaking views of the sky. On the other hand, as we mentioned, the new Avenir provides a great package of safety. Basically, this model includes standardly automated emergency braking and lane-keep assist.
2021 Buick Envision Avenir Powertrain
The recently introduced 2021 Buick Envision Avenir is the SUV that will be powered by the same engine as the regular one. As we mentioned, this model sits on the platform that can be found under Cadillac XT4. Thanks to this platform, this model will use a turbocharged 2.0L I-4 LSY engine coracle producing 237 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque.
As you can see, this powertrain is potent for such a compact SUV. From what we heard, the manufacturer will mate this engine to the latest GM nine-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel-drive system comes standard, while, as on many nowadays models, all-wheel-drive can be owned optionally.
Release Date and Cost
