Buick Enclave Gets New Grille and Curvaceous Headlights

Buick teases 2018 Enclave the first to become an Avenir image

While the preview image shows nothing more the headlights and grille, it's clear the 2018 Enclave will feature a sleeker look than the current model.

Joining the Encore and Envision, the three-row Enclave will not only round out the brand's cadre of crossovers but also mark the North American debut of Buick's new Avenir sub-brand.

The vehicle will be an all-wheel drive crossover.

As far as spy photographers were able to reveal, the brand seems to keep the design rather faithful to the old generation, instead of taking an evolutionary approach with a radiator grille inspired by the current LaCrosse.

Ahead of its big family crossover's formal debut next month at the NY auto show, Buick has given us a little hint of what's to come for the 2018 Enclave.

Furthermore, the new Enclave is also getting some redesign on its headlights.

Motor Authority speculates that the new Enclave will have a turbocharged inline-4 as an option model.

In another report, the 2018 Buick Enclave is expected to carry the 3.6-liter V-6 for the standard model. The publication also suggests that the new crossover will have a 9-speed automatic transmission.

With regard to shape, the 2018 Buick Enclave is expected to have some resemblance with its predecessor.

The Enclave model was first introduced in the year 2007 by Buick.

Even though General Motors kept relatively quiet at the recent Chicago Auto Show, that doesn't mean the automaker plans to do the same next month in NY.
