What to Expect from the 2018 Buick Enclave


Pictured: 2017 Buick Enclave

At long last a new Buick Enclave is coming. It’s been almost a decade since the original Buick Enclave entered the market, so an update was long overdue. The 2018 Buick Enclave will be revealed on April 11, 2017, a day before the press hits the floor at the 2017 New York International Auto Show.

What we do know is that the 2018 Enclave will ride on the same architecture seen with the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse, meaning it will keep its full-size, third-row setup. Judging by what we saw with the 2018 Traverse, a 3.6-liter LGX V6 is quite likely, as is as 2.0-liter LTG turbocharged four-cylinder option to emphasize fuel efficiency.

Where the two large CUVs will differ is in design. Where the 2018 Traverse does its best Tahoe impression, the 2018 Buick Enclave will adopt signature Buick design traits we’ve seen from the LaCrosse and Encore.

And, of course, expect plenty of premium touches with the 2018 Enclave. That’s a given from a luxury brand, but, as we suspected, the 2018 Enclave will also be the first Buick to get the Avenir treatment in North America. Buick announced its Avenir sub-brand last year, which will add unique design traits such as wheels and grilles, and provide an even more luxurious cabin with high-quality materials. Each touch is said to be inspired by the Avenir concept vehicle itself.

Buick confirmed the 2018 Enclave will be built in Lansing, Michigan, and will go on sale by the end of 2017. Stay tuned as we learn more leading up to the CUV’s reveal in just under a month.
