Redesigned 2025 Buick Enclave Drops V6, Gets Super Cruise

Published on April 9, 2024 in News by Dominic Boucher

The next-generation Buick Enclave marks a complete change from its seven-year-old predecessor with the brand’s latest design language and more cutting-edge technology.  

Aesthetically, the new 2025 model looks boxier and more imposing. As a matter of fact, it’s longer, wider and taller than before. The front fascia incorporates Buick’s signature winged lighting, checkmark-style LED headlights and full-width LED taillights that extend into the fenders.

The entry-level Preferred model rides on 20-inch wheels, while the Sport Touring (ST) stands out with black wheels and exterior accents plus a flat-bottom steering wheel. Meanwhile, the top-line Enclave Avenir features unique 22-inch alloys and a luxurious interior complete with a panoramic sunroof, head-up display, 16-speaker Bose Performance Series audio and more.

All Enclave models get a 30-inch digital interface with Google Built-in—the largest in the segment, Buick points out—as well as multi-colour ambient lighting and a motion-sensing power liftgate (just sweep your foot under the rear bumper to open it).

Available Super Cruise

The 2025 Enclave is the first Buick to offer Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving capability, first introduced on Cadillac vehicles. General Motors is currently working to expand its compatible road network to about 1.2 million kilometres (U.S. and Canada combined) through 2025. 

Similar to many competitors, Buick’s three-row SUV is offering a plethora of advanced safety and driver assistance features. Blind Zone Steering Assist, Intersection Automatic Emergency Braking, Traffic Sign Recognition and Lane Keep Assist with Departure Warning are new additions for 2025, all of them standard.

Under the hood, the 3.6-litre V6 is not returning, as was the case with the 2024 Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia. Instead, you’ll find a turbocharged 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine producing 328 horsepower and 326 lb-ft of torque. An eight-speed automatic transmission and standard AWD system handle power delivery. Max towing capacity is rated at 5,000 lbs.

The 2025 Buick Enclave will arrive in dealerships this summer from the Lansing Delta Township assembly plant in Michigan. Expect prices to go up slightly.
