2022 Buick Enclave Gets New Sage Metallic Color: First Look6
The refreshed 2022 Buick Enclave adds three new exterior colors to its palette: Emperor Blue Metallic, Cherry Red Tintcoat, and Sage Metallic. Here’s our first look at the new Sage hue.
Assigned RPO code G6N and touch-up paint code WA-619G, Sage Metallic is the only green-like hue available for the 2022 Enclave, and is one of five metallic hues.
Sage Metallic is also one of eight 2022 Buick Enclave exterior color options:
- White Frost Tricoat
- Sage Metallic
- Emperor Blue Metallic
- Quicksilver Metallic
- Summit White
- Ebony Twilight Metallic
- Rich Garnet Metallic
- Cherry Red Tintcoat
The new Sage color is not included in the base price of the 2022 Enclave and carries an extra charge of $495. It is available on all trim levels and with every interior color combination on Essence and Premium models as well as the range-topping Avenir trim level.
2022 Buick Enclave Trim Levels:
- Essence (1SL)
- Premium (1SN)
- Avenir (1SP)
2022 Buick Enclave Interior Color Combinations:
- Dark Galvanized with Ebony
- Whisper Beige with Ebony
- Ebony with Ebony
Sage Metallic is also accompanied by a Pitch Dark Night lower exterior accent color, as are Emperor Blue Metallic, Quicksilver Metallic, and Cherry Red Tintcoat. Meanwhile, Ebony Twilight Metallic models include a Spectra Gray lower exterior accent color, and Summit White and White Frost Tricoat include a Satin Nickel lower exterior accent color. However, range-topping Avenir models forego the lower exterior accenting in place of body-color panels.
The Buick Enclave received a refresh for the 2022 model year. Noteworthy changes and updates to the refreshed model include a more modern and expressive design thanks to a new front fascia with sleeker headlights as well as a restyled rear end with new tail lights that feature Y-shaped inner graphics, which lead to a prominent center styling line. The update was originally slated to launch for the 2021 model year, but was delayed due to impacts stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic.
As of this writing, production of the 2022 Buick Enclave at the GM Lansing Delta Township factory in Michigan resumed on October 4th, after being idled due to the ongoing microchip shortage. As such, very few units of the refreshed crossover SUV have reached dealer lots.
Availability varies by dealer, so check with yours for complete details.

Wow Buick! I hope the marketplace rewards them for breaking free of the tyranny of silver/black/white. Very refreshing to see something different.
I must’ve not been paying attention but the new front fascia is a nice improvement too. I don’t remember seeing it. I like the move away from that giant headlights Enclave once had to something slimmer and more refined in form. The lights, the interesting grille pattern, and the novel color almost make the Enclave look like a new product.
Hello to the Buick company . I brought a 2011 Buick Enclave about 3 years ago. On thanksgiving morning this year (2021) around 1:30am. My daughter was driving my car and a drunk driver hit her head on. My Buick saved her life!! My car front fender was cut in half. And my daughter came out unharmed. She was shaking up and sore, I want to thank-you. I have photos if you like to see.
Wow, glad that she is OK! Thankfully with all of the safety features in vehicles these days, the outcomes of such accidents is reduced fatality and injury rates. Happy Holidays and hopefully your daughter’s soreness subsides!
Not quite sure this greener shade of gray qualifies as breaking free. It’s consciously PC, trying not to draw undue attention to itself for fear of retribution. So much for diversity.
