Aside from flashing a singular photo of it, Buick has been mum on the 2021 Buick Envision. While details of the redesigned crossover are limited, its fuel economy has leaked courtesy of the EPA.
According to AutoBlog the EPA is now listing a singular powertrain option for the 2021 Buick Envision. The offering specifies a turbocharged engine with all-wheel drive. While the EPA’s documents do not disclose details, GM’s own order guide for the redesigned Envision has already been published with said details. The Envision will be powered by the same 2.0-liter turbo found under the hood of the Cadillac XT4. Like the XT4, it will generate 230 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque.
The EPA ratings for the Envision with all-wheel drive will come in at 22 mpg city and 29 mpg highway, for 25 mpg combined.
It is expected the Envision will also offer front-wheel drive, but for whatever reason that variant has been tested by the EPA just yet. Expect a modest increase in fuel economy on that version.
There’s still a lot of open questions about the new Envision. One of the largest outstanding tidbits is where it will be produced. Shanghai GM will be producing it in China for the Chinese market, but GM hasn’t uttered a word has to where the North American model will be produced. The current Envision has been imported from China, but new U.S. tariffs have driven up the costs to import the Envision.
Another unanswered question about the new Envision is when it will hit the market.
