2020 Buick Enclave
The Buick Enclave receives a mid-cycle refresh for the 2020 model year, consisting of updates to its exterior and powertrain. To note, a mid-cycle refresh can otherwise be referred to as a facelift or a mid-cycle enhancement (MCE) in GM speak.
Buick’s flagship seven-passenger SUV enters the 2020 model year with style and tech updates highlighted by a new Sport Touring package, a bold, monochromatic take on Enclave style that radiates confidence. The ST package features a unique Sport grille with body-color surround and 20-inch bright machined aluminum wheels with contrasting Satin Graphite pockets and is available on the Enclave Essence trim level.
“Buyers are choosing the Buick Enclave because it is everything they want in a premium crossover with its distinct styling, quality and driving dynamics,” said Phil Brook, vice president of Buick and GMC marketing. “For the 2020 model year, we’re upping the comfort with available massaging seats, bringing in a new and different look for customers with Sport Touring and enhancing our in-vehicle technology to provide more of what these customers want.”

Exterior Design Highlights
The 2020 Buick Enclave features a host of revisions to its exterior design, from its signature Buick grille to its hands-free power liftgate with LED logo projection, every detail comes together to “create tomorrow’s SUV for today’s family.”
The automaker says that the fluid arc of its sculpted exterior and winged headlamps are exquisite examples of the 2020 Enclave’s exceptional style.
Interior Design Highlights
The Buick Enclave is equipped with many features that help it to provide a smooth, quite, ride. For instance, Buick QuietTuning technology with Active Noise Cancellation helps reduce, block and absorb unwanted noise by utilizing many measures including triple door seals, acoustic laminated glass and a noise-reducing five-link rear suspension. This helps make sure nothing interrupts you and your passengers’ time together and allows conversations to flourish among all three rows.
Warm wood tones, brushed-chrome accents and available heated, ventilated, massaging, and leather-appointed first-and second-row seating come together to delight your senses. Enclave also features a center console with a pass-through compartment underneath. Each compartment offers a spacious area for you to store more of what you need, when you need it.
With the pull of a handle, Enclave’s Smart Slide second-row seating makes it easy to access the third row. In addition, the Smart Slide passenger-side seat pitches as it slides for easy access—even with an empty forward-facing child seat installed using the LATCH system.
The 2020 Enclave features updates for added comfort, as well as convenience technology that includes Buick’s next generation infotainment system. This new 8-inch diagonal touchscreen comes standard on all trim levels and offers features such as available connected navigation1. The system is capable of supporting SiriusXM with 360L2(if equipped), which combines satellite and streaming to deliver more channels and content to Buick drivers and their passengers. Other new tech additions include available new HD Rear Vision Camera and HD Surround Vision systems and a new, four-way power lumbar seat adjuster with a driver and front passenger massage feature that is standard on the Premium and Avenir models.

Like all second-generation units of the Buick Enclave, the 2020 Enclave continues to ride on the long-wheelbase variant of the GM C1 platform (or “Chi”) shared with the following vehicles:
Meanwhile, the short-wheelbase version of the C1 platform is used to underpin the following vehicles:
- 2017 and newer Cadillac XT5 (first generation)
- 2018 and newer GMC Acadia (second generation)
- 2019 Chevy Blazer and newer
We expect the 2020 Buick Enclave to follow the regular GM model year rollover sequence, and launch on or before the third quarter of calendar year 2019.
We expect that the current, second-generation Buick Enclave will remain in production for at least the 2020, and 2021, 2022, 2023 and probably the 2024 model years, and that an all-new, future Buick Enclave will launch in the vicinity of the 2025 model year.
