Buick also sprinkles a host of updates across the entire Enclave lineup.
Buick has announced it’s adding a bit more style next year to the 2020 Enclave, the brand’s flagship crossover, with a new Sport Touring package. The automaker is also updating the Enclave across all trims with several new features, technologies, and upgrades, including the top-tier Enclave Avenir.
The Sport Touring package isn’t wildly different from the Sport Appearance and Touring packages Buick offers for the 2019 Enclave, even sharing what appears to be the same 20-inch bright machined aluminum wheels with contrasting Satin Graphic inserts. However, the new Sport Touring package does differentiate itself with a unique Sport grille and body-color surround.
Buick’s updates to the 2020 Enclave Avenir are surprisingly much tamer than the new Sport Touring Package. Buick is replacing the dark gray plastic cladding on the crossover’s lower exterior with color-matching pieces, giving the top-tier crossover a more “harmonious look,” according to the automaker. Buick is also giving the 2020 Enclave Avenir three new exterior colors: Champagne Gold Metallic, Dark Moon Blue Metallic, and Avenir-exclusive Rich Garnet Metallic.
But that’s not all. Buick is giving all 2020 Enclaves Buick’s next-generation infotainment system and its new 8.0-inch touchscreen. Other new available features include the HD Rear Vision Camera and HD Surround Vision Camera systems. Also available is a four-way power lumbar seat adjuster with massaging front seats, which is standard on the Premium and Avenir trims.
Buick did not disclose the Sport Touring pack’s price. It should fall in line with Buick’s other Sport Appearance and Touring packages, which hover in the low- to mid-$2,000 range. The 2020 Buick Enclave will keep the same starting price of $41,195, which includes the destination charge. For 2019, that charge was $1,195. The 2020 Buick Enclave will begin arriving at dealerships later this summer.
2020 Buick Enclave Adds New Tech, Style and a Back Massage
DETROIT — Buick’s flagship seven-passenger SUV enters the 2020 model year with style and tech updates highlighted by a new Sport Touring package, a bold, monochromatic take on Enclave style that radiates confidence. The ST package features a unique Sport grille with body-color surround and 20-inch bright machined aluminum wheels with contrasting Satin Graphite pockets and is available on the Enclave Essence trim level.
Powered by Buick’s 3.6L V-6 engine delivering an SAE-certified 310 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque, the 2020 Enclave delivers spirited performance fitting of the Sport Touring’s flowing exterior design.
The 2020 Enclave features updates for added comfort, as well as convenience technology that includes Buick’s next generation infotainment system. This new 8-inch diagonal touchscreen comes standard on all trim levels and offers features such as available connected navigation1. The system is capable of supporting SiriusXM with 360L2(if equipped), which combines satellite and streaming to deliver more channels and content to Buick drivers and their passengers. Other new tech additions include available new HD Rear Vision Camera and HD Surround Vision systems and a new, four-way power lumbar seat adjuster with a driver and front passenger massage feature that is standard on the Premium and Avenir models.
“Buyers are choosing the Buick Enclave because it is everything they want in a premium crossover with its distinct styling, quality and driving dynamics,” said Phil Brook, vice president of Buick and GMC marketing. “For the 2020 model year, we’re upping the comfort with available massaging seats, bringing in a new and different look for customers with Sport Touring and enhancing our in-vehicle technology to provide more of what these customers want.”
The upscale Enclave Avenir gets a sleeker appearance for model year 2020 with a lower panel that matches the rest of the exterior, creating a harmonious look. Three new exterior colors round out the updates: Champagne Gold Metallic, Rich Garnet Metallic (Avenir only) and Dark Moon Blue Metallic.
The 2020 Buick Enclave starts at $41,195 (including destination freight charge, excluding tax, title, license and dealer fees) and will arrive in dealerships later this summer.
