Rendered: Buick Enclave Refresh
Although current events have delayed a lot of new vehicles from being released, including the refreshed Buick Enclave, we came up with a rendering to give our readers an idea of what this product may look like when it’s finally released.
Using a heavy dose of design cues from the smaller, Chinese-market Buick Enclave, we believe this rendering is very close to the production vehicle. New design cues include split-level headlights, a design trend that has spread across the marketplace, including in GM’s own stateside portfolio with the Trailblazer, Blazer, and refreshed Traverse.
In general, the front fascia is more sculpted and, dare we say, fairly aggressive for a Buick product. The rear bumper and tail lights will also be updated and the interior should see some minor changes. There are no major changes expected on the mechanical side of things, although GM could potentially see fit to add their 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder from the Cadillac XT4, GMC Acadia, and Chevrolet Blazer to the lineup as an entry-level model. We think that seems like a stretch considering how large of a vehicle the Enclave is.
We don’t expect to see the updated Enclave for quite some time, so if will be in the market for a three-row crossover soon, you may need to look elsewhere.
