The 2018 Buick Enclave will arrive completely redesigned later this year. Part of its new design will be the debut of the Avenir luxury sub-brand. The Enclave Avenir will represent the highest level of Buick luxury with premium materials, more versatility, and intuitive technology.
“The Enclave has been a successful formula for the Buick brand, with sales results that have defied traditional product cycles, and 90 percent of customers purchasing in the top two trim levels,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of Global Buick and GMC. “It’s a beacon for the modern, attainable luxury Buick stands for and is a natural place to launch Avenir.”
The Buick Enclave Avenir will come standard with advanced safety features, a Buick-first Rear Camera Mirror, a hands-free power-programmable liftgate, and more connectivity. In addition, it will feature distinctive styling elements like a three-dimensionsional mesh grille, pearl nickel 20-inch aluminum wheels, and Evonik Acrylite lighting.
Inside the Enclave Avenir, there will be spacious seating for up to seven passengers. In addition, it will provide more total cargo volume behind the first row than other luxury brand competitors.
The redesigned 2018 Buick Enclave, including the Avenir model, will be coming to DeVoe Buick GMC this fall.

The crossover segment is currently one of the most rapidly growing segments in the car industry, making it no surprise that many carmakers are increasing the production rate of their crossover vehicles. General Motors is no exception to this and has recently invested $63 million in a Lansing Lambda CUV plant expansion. This plant builds some of GM’s most popular crossovers, such as the Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia, and Buick Enclave.
“UAW members have a proud history of building quality vehicles in the Lansing Delta Township plant and they look forward to the changes and upgrades made possible by what workers and management are able to achieve by working together,” said UAW Vice President Cindy Estrada, who directs the union’s national GM Department. “The investment in the plant and in UAW Local 602 members means workers will have an updated environment in which they can continue delivering quality workmanship for years to come.”
2015 Buick Enclave
This new expansion will increase the plant’s floor space by roughly 263,000 square feet. Of that space, 181,000 will be dedicated for an updated body shop with cutting-edge robots. The rest of the space will be delegated to a paint show and an area for general assembly.
With this new space, it’s possible that GM might introduce a new crossover to its lineup. Make sure you check back to DeVoe Buick GMC later to see if there has been a new addition!
2014 Buick Encore – Available now at DeVoe Buick GMC!
Drivers everywhere are choosing Buick for its affordable luxury. One of the most popular models is the 2014 Encore compact crossover. The Encore is perfect for those who like to sit high like in an SUV while maintaining great efficiency and enjoying the convenience of a smaller car. Motor Authority recently released an article stating that Buick may be introducing a new crossover!
The Buick Envision Crossover is set to be available sometime in 2015, but will start out in the Chinese market. Speculators show that the Envision Crossover will fit just between the Encore and Enclave. It is slightly bigger than the Encore, but not quite as big as the Enclave. Interior features include a leather-wrapped and heated steering wheel, steering wheel-mounted audio controls, cruise control, panoramic sunroof, noise canceling system, and leather accentuated accents.
Buick suspected new crossover is powered by a 2.0-liter four cylinder engine and a six-speed automatic transmission. The Envision will have Buick’s FlexRide suspension system which will give drivers the ability to switch between four distinct driving modes.
Here at DeVoe we hope that the Envision will be available here in the U.S. soon, until then we will wait for its official unveiling on August 28th! Stay tuned…
Last month Consumer Reports came out with a list of the highest-scoring American vehicles, and we are happy to announce that Buick made, not one, but two appearances on that list! Essentially, this list consisted of 14 vehicular categories, ranging from wagon to minivan, and an American-made vehicle was named as the best for each category. So which ones did Buick win? Great question!
The Buick Regal CXL (turbo) came out on top in the “upscale sedan” category, while the Buick Enclave took the top spot in the “luxury SUV” category. So the bottom line is, if you’re looking for a luxury vehicle that was built in America, you need a Buick. Stop by DeVoe Buick GMC in Naples and let us help you find the car or SUV that suits you best!
You may not have realized it, but President’s day is right around the corner!
