The 2023 Buick Enclave recently entered production, as the crossover began rolling off the production line on June 11th, 2022. In anticipation of this impending arrival in dealerships, GM has gone live with its online configurator tool for the 2023 Buick Enclave, which allows prospective buyers to equip the vehicle with different features and options and view a complete pricing summary of their preferred specification.
GM will introduce minimal changes to the Buick Enclave for the 2023 model year. The paint options list will no longer include the Quicksilver Metallic color, as GM Authority was the first to report, which will be replaced by a new hue called Moonstone Gray Metallic. This new exterior color option is visible on the 2023 Buick Enclave pictured below.
The crossover will continue with just one powerplant option: GM’s naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LFY gasoline, which is rated at 310 horsepower at 6,600 rpm and 266 pound-feet of torque at 2,800 rpm. The GM nine-speed automatic transmission pairs with standard front-wheel drive or optional all-wheel drive.
The 2023 Buick Enclave arrives on the heels of the refreshed 2022 Buick Enclave, which introduced revised front and rear fasciae to the nameplate, along with a restyled center console, additional interior premium soft-touch points, and a push-button Electronic Transmission Range Select for the transmission. The Buick Enclave nameplate was originally slated to receive an update for the 2021 model year, but the refresh was later delayed to the 2022 model year as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Production of the 2023 Buick Enclave will take place at the GM Lansing Delta Township plant in Michigan. The Lansing plant also produces the closely related Chevy Traverse three-row crossover, whose production also began on June 11th after GM delayed the scheduled start date by a week.
