Enclave was introduced as a game-changer for the Buick brand and has since become one of our most successful and important vehicles. It set the tone for a more progressive Buick, helping change perception for us and serving as the standard-bearer of what our products stand for: smart, stylish luxury.

The 2018 Buick Enclave
Now is an exciting time for Buick. The heavy lifting of their lineup overhaul is complete, and they can now focus on refining their vehicles. And the 2018 Enclave is perhaps the first Buick to reap the full benefit of this overhaul. Drivers will immediately notice the new 2018 Buick Enclave’s styling. Buick has completely reimagined the interior. A sharp, narrow new grille punctuates the athletic posture. You’ll also find Evonik Acrylite lighting technology and LED lighting to complete the aggressive new design.
Under the hood, the 2018 Buick Enclave will have a standard 3.6L V6 generates 302 horsepower and 260 lb-ft. of torque. Buick is pairing it with a nine-speed automatic transmission and auto stop/start technology for better fuel efficiency – and efficiency in general. Put that power to good use by upgrading to the available intelligent AWD. It is Buick’s first switchable AWD system. From the outside, the combination of force and ingenuity promises a highly enjoyable drive.
The Driver’s Enclave
Inside the 2018 Buick Enclave, you’ll find a standard 8” infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple Car Play. That also includes OnStar 4G LTE WiFi. Those features, along with available 10-speaker Bose sound system, can be fully enjoyed in the Enclave’s remarkably quiet cabin. Both QuietTuning and active noise cancellation have been improved even further. The combination of those technologies creates a silent cabin, even when driving over rough stretches of highway. You can carry out conversation from the third row to the first with little strain.
Frankly, the amount of standard features in the 2018 Buick Enclave is staggering. In addition to everything mentioned above, standard equipment in the 2018 Enclave includes:
- Keyless Entry & Push-Button Start

- Forward Collision Alert
- Rear Cross Traffic Alert
- Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning
- Safety Alert Seat
- Following Distance Indicator
