The Buick Enclave was introduced as the brand’s renaissance vehicle, marking a new chapter for the brand in North America. Since then, the Enclave seems to have accomplished its mission, as the brand certainly has made headway in both reliability and positive perceptions.
However, saying the Enclave is a tad long in the tooth is an understatement, knowing the current model has been relatively unchanged since 2008. Buick has let is slip that an all-new, second-generation 2018 Buick Enclave is coming, though. And it’s coming very soon.
Buick pegs the 2017 New York Auto Show as the place we will see the completely redesigned 2018 Enclave, which will share the same platform as the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse. The new Traverse, revealed this week at the 2017 North American International Auto Show, offers a few clues as to what we may see from a new Enclave as well.
We’d also expect the 2018 Enclave will also usher in Buick’s Avenir sub-brand, since crossovers are the hot thing at the moment. Avenir promises exclusive interior and exterior cues and even greater luxury.
