The forthcoming 2019 Buick Enclave is perhaps the company’s most popular model. This 3-row crossover SUV is also a big hit in China and after a decade, the second-generation Enclave is coming to the markets. This SUV rides on a new 1XX platform and is powered by a V6 drivetrain. Furthermore, the interior offers plenty of premium materials and safety features are astonishing.
Great performances, roomy interior, and superb driving manners are available at an affordable price. If you want more luxury and better performance, the range-topping Avenir model is the right choice. The 2019 model will suffer a total redesign and the final results are stunning.
2019 Buick Enclave changes
The new generation of 2019 Buick Enclave looks gorgeous. This full-size crossover SUV takes the inspiration from the company’s latest concept and the result is a very modern model. The styling looks sleek and fresh. Moreover, the appearance is premium and sporty. The front end hosts a wider front grille and headlights. The bumper comes with horizontal fog lamps and vents and the front fascia is almost the same as on the Avista concept. To the sides, Enclave comes with a swoopy beltline that is providing more muscular appearance.
The character line that runs across above the side skirts is another piece-of-art and more chrome trims are present. Side mirrors and generally the whole body looks more aerodynamic and the roof sits lower than ever before. The rear part offers a dynamic design with slim taillights and the huge massive strip between those taillights.
2019 Buick Enclave interior
We can’t say that the previous model came with the poor interior, but it wasn’t premium for sure. Now, the 2019 Buick Enclave is exactly that. The latest redesign brought so much to the Enclave model. The dash is all-new, it looks aerodynamical and the center stack looks simple with far fewer buttons. Most of the controls can be found in the 8-inch infotainment display. The infotainment system now supports basically all of the latest systems, among them Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. We personally like the Rear Seat Reminder option. It is a feature that reminds the drivers to check the rear seats before exiting the vehicle.
The instrument cluster of the 2019 Buick Enclave is also upgraded and it looks modern. The steering wheel is done in a three-dimensional layout and it holds more controls than before. The seats are new, just like the door panels. The comfort is great and the interior adds plenty of luxurious materials. That includes leather upholstery and additional wood accents around the dash and door panels. The base model offers a standard push-button start and keyless entry. Moreover, the power liftgate is in the offer, along with the tri-zone climate control and up to six USB ports.
The safety rating is among the best in the segment, and Buick now offers a safety package. The package offers seven airbags, rearview camera, rear park assist, forward collision alert and rear cross traffic alert. Moreover, lane keep assist, front park assist and lane departure warning are all in the offer.
2019 Buick Enclave Avenir
The front of the 2019 Buick Enclave Avenir model looks more attractive with the better-looking black Ice finish and three-dimensional chrome wings. Also, the exclusive grille brings luxury to the newest 2019 Enclave Avenir. Furthermore, the rear bumper looks bold and chrome trim around the tailgate spoiler brings another level of uniqueness. Intelli Beam headlamps taillights are standard, the same stands for the headlights that are providing better visibility.
The cabin with this trim will get Ebony-themed interior and beautifully crafted leather for second and rear row seating. The new 2019 Buick Avenir also offers a better navigation system and modern amenities like a standard wireless charging† pad.
2019 Buick Enclave engine and transmission
Just like the previous model, even the new generation of 2019 Buick Enclave will ride on a 3.6-liter V6. However, this engine is slightly re-tuned and it can be found under the hood of a new GMC Acadia and Chevy Camaro. This drivetrain is capable of producing 310 HP and 266 lb-ft of torque. Interestingly, Chevrolet Camaro comes with the 335 horses. On the other hand, the new Enclave will deliver much more power than its predecessor which is a great boost.
The V6 unit is available with the 9-speed automatic transmission. Thanks to all these specs, the 2019 Enclave sprints from 0 to 60 mph in 7.2 seconds.
Towing capacity and fuel economy
Buick’s newest full-size crossover SUV can tow up to 5,000 pounds. Furthermore, the chassis suffers a redesign and new front suspension is in the offer. Thanks to all these changes and upgrades, the 2019 model is the best one yet. The all-wheel-drive system is optional and the fuel economy is rated at 17 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.
2019 Buick Enclave price and release date
This crossover 2019 Buick Enclave will cost slightly over $40,000. It is a slight price increase for the base model, as the 2019 Buick Enclave entered its new generation with a redesign. The trim levels are Essence, Premium, and Avenir. This model will go on sale later in 2018. The main competitors are the Acura MDX and Lincoln MKX that are available for about the same money. Generally, the price is affordable as the new Enclave is twice better than its predecessor.
