The company is about to introduce some intriguing novelties for the 2020 Buick Enclave. Of course, it won’t be a mid-cycle refresh. It definitely seems too early for these significant upgrades. On the other side, the Enclave will enlarge its already long list of standard equipment much more. More importantly, it should offer something entirely new. It looks like the GM’s new Super Cruise self-driving system will debut at a Buick sooner that many of us would expect. Other than that, the 2020 Buick Enclave could get few minor cosmetic upgrades, but the center will certainly remain the same.
2020 Buick Enclave Overview
As we already mentioned, a new Super Cruise system will surely be the largest novelty for the 2020 Buick Enclave, if we can trust the hottest reports. At the moment, this system is reserved for upscale Cadillac models only. It should find its place in a few Chevy models in the future as well. Obviously, Buick is next in the line, and Enclave as the brand’s flagship model. GM engineers call this feature the world’s first hands-free system for the freeway. It works on the pretty much same principle as Tesla’s Autopilot.
In practice, this means you’ll be able to enjoy a more handsfree ride on the highway. The system will prevent you in the street, and also safe from the vehicles which are in front or behind you. When it comes to overall design characteristics, there is absolutely no location for larger changes at the present time. The new generation came just a year ago and there is not any need for larger updates within the next few years.
The new creation rides on a C1XX platform, making the Enclave lighter than before, which has a positive impact not only on performance but on driving dynamics as well. Additionally, there is a brand-new design language, with which Buick is finally done with funny-looking, outdated lines of the prior generation. Another benefit in the platform is an entirely new suspension. In a combination with better sound isolation, it makes the driving experience much better.
Interior Design and Feature
The 2020 Buick Enclave should not feature bigger changes on the interior. We have already indicated a chance of new color schemes which should be the only notable change, along with additional standard features for each trim level. On the other side, the overall cabin layout will stay the same. This crossover offers a well-designed cabin, though some opponents still offer a small bit better interior quality. In terms of distance, this SUV is among class-leader. Interestingly, even the base model comes with second-row captain’s chairs, so the first two rows offer lots of legroom and conveniences.
The third row also offers a lot of space and features a bench that can easily accommodate three average-sized passengers. In the end, there is an impressive list of contemporary technology features. Even though a touchscreen and Bluetooth are typical features for the section, matters like smartphone integration, Wi-Fi hotspot, satellite radio, and six USB ports are unquestionably pleasant additions.
2020 Buick Enclave Engine
The powertrain is another aspect where we do not anticipate bigger surprises for the 2020 Buick Enclave. Transmission is a new 9-speed automatic, which transmits power to front wheels. All-wheel drive is optional. This type of combo of power and new-generation transmission supplies not only strong acceleration amounts but a butter smooth ride as well. When it comes to fuel economy, you can count on class-average evaluations.
This implies approximately 18 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway. If you choose an AWD model, the economy drops for approximately 1 mpg. Apart from a recognizable V6 unit, several reports suggest that the company can present a new turbo inline-four unit as an option. However, we haven’t heard anything in the officials, so take this with a dose of some reserve.
Release Date and Price
Expect to see 2020 Buick Enclave overdue within the next year. Regardless of the new Super Cruise system, the price should not be changed too much. So, expect a familiar range that goes between 40.000 and 56.000 bucks
