Models coated in Emperor Blue Metallic also feature a Pitch Dark Night lower exterior accent color. The same is the case for Sage Metallic, Quicksilver Metallic, and Cherry Red Tintcoat.

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.
