After a decade on the market, the 2018 Buick Enclave has arrived with fresh looks, premium amenities and more. Now, it also has a price.
The 2018 Buick Enclave will start at $40,970, including destination fees, when it goes on sale in late fall of this year. Doing some quick math reveals a near $1,000 jump in the Enclave’s starting price. Buick added that popular trim levels fall within $750 of the outgoing model, while additional equipment is packed in to retain Buick’s attainable luxury motif.
The Enclave Essence starts at $45,190 with front-wheel drive and $47,190 for all-wheel drive. The Premium trim jumps to $48,990, or $51,290 for all-wheel drive. Finally, Buick’s first Avenir model, the 2018 Buick Enclave Avenir, starts at $54,390 for front-wheel drive or $56,690 for all-wheel drive.
Buick hopes strong crossover demand will help push transaction prices higher with more content and available luxury, especially from the Avenir trim.
“The Enclave has been a successful formula for the Buick brand, with sales results that have defied traditional product cycles,” Duncan Aldred, vice president of Global Buick and GMC, said in a statement.
Is the price right? The market will answer this fall.
