The recent GM Investor Day gave us an idea of the direction in which the Detroit-based automaker is headed in the near future, as in addition to financial news, information on upcoming vehicles was shared. Among them was the next-generation Buick Enclave, expected to debut during the 2024 calendar year.
Confirmed by GM President Mark Reuss, the upcoming third generation of the full-size crossover is scheduled to be revealed sometime during the 2024 calendar year. No additional information was disclosed, but we do know that the next-gen Enclave will continue to be built at the GM Lansing Delta Township plant in Michigan. Additionally, it will be built along the Chevy Traverse, as well as the next-gen GMC Acadia.
“It’s our three-row made in Lansing, very profitable for us, and Buick’s flagship for now in the family-type luxury SUV segment,” Reuss said. “And again, the new design language for Buick, as well as the new badging as you’ve seen here over the last few months.”
Sharp readers may recognize that this announcement comes not long after a refreshed 2022 Buick Enclave was released. It’s important to understand that the current, second-generation Enclave was released for 2018, with this mid-cycle refresh originally planned for the 2021 model year. However, due to complications caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, GM was forced to postpone the refresh until the 2022 model year.
Several other new products were confirmed at the GM Investor Day presentation. Among these include an all-new, third-generation Chevy Traverse, as well as two new high-performance variants of the C8 Corvette, namely the C8 Corvette ZR1 and C8 Corvette Zora.
For now, the current 2023 Buick Enclave uses the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LFY gasoline engine, which produces 310 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. The V6 is paired with a GM nine-speed automatic transmission, while FWD is standard and AWD is optional.
