The Buick Envision is getting a full redesign for the 2021 model year, and it couldn’t look more different from the outgoing model.
Where the current Envision compact SUV is rounder, with a short nose and stockier proportions, the 2021 Envision is sleek, angular, and exudes style. The new version of this five-passenger compact SUV sits lower to the ground and has a wider stance, giving it a distinctly athletic appearance.
Buick hasn’t said much about the 2021 Envision besides the photos of its striking new design, but we do know that it will come with a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four engine paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission.
The automaker also revealed that the new Envision will offer an available advanced Head-Up Display, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ compatibility, and a standard Buick Driver Confidence package with a range of safety and driver assist technologies.
The 2020 Envision delivers a stunning interior with tons of technology, so the 2021 model will likely just build on it further. The crystal-clear touchscreen with multiple camera views, Buick QuietTuning® technology with Active Noise Cancellation, available wireless charging, and other comfort and convenience amenities will likely carry over to the 2021 Envision.
All of us here at Temecula Valley Buick GMC can’t wait to see what the redesigned Envision looks like on the inside, and get our hands on it for real when it launches early next year.
Cars are built to be driven, which means that even when yours is sitting idle in Temecula Valley, there are some important maintenance tips to keep in mind. From regular service and cleaning to adding special chemicals to the fuel, there are a number of things you can do to keep your car in prime condition – even when it’s not in use.
Try to stay in motion
Start your car and move it every other week. You don’t have to go far, but let the vehicle idle to temperature, let the fluids circulate, and move the wheels. If it sits for weeks on end, you might get water in the system, warped tires, rusted rotors, and degraded gaskets and rubber parts.
Don’t forget the basics
Southern California service requirements are a bit different than elsewhere, but while your car sits idle, you should do what you normally would. For example, change the oil every three to five months, even when you’re not driving, as oil breaks down over time. Change the engine air filter and cabin air filter, top off fluids, and check tire pressure.
Be proactive to prevent damage
Finally, add a fuel stabilizer and a trickle charger. A fuel stabilizer is a chemical that prevents the gasoline from going bad, and without it, you may need to have the tank, pump, lines, and injectors cleaned or replaced. A trickle charger keeps the battery fully juiced even when the car is off, and most trickle chargers don’t need to be plugged in, either.
