The 2024 Buick Enclave represents the seventh model year of the second-gen three-row crossover SUV, for which it doesn’t receive any changes, updates or new features, since the all-new, next-generation Enclave is just around the corner.
As a reminder, the 2024 Buick Enclave continues to be offered as a full-size, three-row crossover utility vehicle (CUV) with five doors (four doors plus a liftgate). It’s offered in three trim levels – Essence (base), Premium (mid-level) and Avenir (range-topping).
The 2024 Buick Enclave is offered exclusively in a seven-passenger, 2-2-3 seating configuration, comprised of two captain’s chairs in the front row, 40-40 split captain’s chairs in the second row, and a 60-40 split bench for the third row. Of the two captain’s chairs in the second row, the left one features fore/aft adjustment only, while the right one is capable of a pitch slide function for access to the third row. The only seat trim material offered is perforated leather across all trims.
The same naturally-aspirated 3.6L V6 LFY gasoline engine used in the 2018 thru 2023 models continues to power the 2024 Buick Enclave. Rated at 310 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque, the atmospheric six mates to GM’s nine-speed automatic transmission. Each trim is available with either front-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive.
The model rides on the long wheelbase version of the GM C1 platform (or “Chi”) shared most directly with the second-gen Chevy Traverse. Production of the 2024 Buick Enclave started on June 5th, 2023 at the GM Lansing Delta Township plant in Michigan. Production of the 2024 model is expected to end in December 2023 or January 2024 to make room for the next-gen Enclave, which is expected to launch for the 2025 model year.
As for the 2025 Enclave, it’s expected to carry over the general platform and chassis of the current model, while receiving overhauls to the exterior, interior, powertrain and electrical system. We’ve already captured a few prototypes undergoing testing, showing an evolution of Buick’s current design language.
