As it turns out, Buick’s Avista Concept – which showed up on Detroit stages at the North American International Auto Show last year – is a tough act to follow. The brand didn’t even bother, keeping relatively quiet throughout the fanfare of the Detroit auto show’s usual exciting reveals and previews. However, Buick representatives did tide fans of the brand over with some news; the Buick Enclave reveal is coming soon, so sit tight.
According to the Buick reps who made an appearance in Detroit, the new Enclave will be showing up in dealer showrooms across the country before the end of 2017. This next-generation model will be built in General Motors’ Lansing, Michigan plant alongside the Chevy Traverse and an all-new full-size crossover from Cadillac. Though info on the Buick Enclave is scarce at the moment, experts are looking to the 2018 Traverse for what to expect – including features like Apple CarPlay, a more spacious interior, and more trim levels.
Other features expected to be unveiled in the Buick Enclave reveal are a variety of brand new engine options, a nine-speed automatic transmission, and the ability for consumers to opt for either front- or all-wheel drive. There will likely also be more available technology features for drivers to choose from for their entertainment and convenience.
