General Motors is gearing up to release an all-new third generation for the Buick Enclave crossover in conjunction with the 2025 model year, with a variety of updates and changes expected in the debut. GM Authority has already covered what we know and expect from the upcoming 2025 Buick Enclave thus far, but now, we’re getting an early look at what’s in store thanks to the following GM Authority spy photos. As it turns out, these photos represent the very first time we’ve seen the 2025 Buick Enclave out in the real world.
As expected, this 2025 Buick Enclave prototype is wrapped up in body-hugging black-and-white camouflage, which appears to hide the new styling underneath. Nevertheless, there are a few items we can pick out from the camo.
The front end for example, is reworked with new cues taken from the Buick Wildcat EV concept that was unveiled last year. Although the Wildcat EV shows the Tri-Shield brand’s latest all-electric model styling, the concept will also provide design inspiration for ICE-powered models like the 2025 Buick Enclave.
To that end, we spot slim lighting elements in the corners of the front fascia, while the grille utilizes horizontal styling lines and a layered approach. Vertical lighting elements can be seen along the periphery of the fascia on either side of the grille.
As is the case for the current generation, the next-gen 2025 Buick Enclave will once again slot into the full-size, five-door crossover utility vehicle (CUV) segment. The profile also appears to be more square than that of the current model, and will likely present a slightly more truck-like attitude.
In back, there’s a subtle roof spoiler attached to the top of the hatch, while two exhaust outlets can be seen in the lower bumper.
As for the bits we can’t see, the 2025 Buick Enclave will cradle the turbocharged 2.5L I4 LK0 gasoline engine, which will likely produce roughly 315 horsepower and 317 pound-feet of torque. Output will reach the front wheels as standard, with AWD offered as optional.
Look for the 2025 Buick Enclave to make its formal introduction next year.
