With impressive new three-row SUV entries from Kia with the Telluride and Hyundai with the Palisade, competition is heating up in the class and Buick is answering back with updates to its popular Enclave. The Enclave got redesigned for 2018,and for 2020, the SUV adds a special exterior styling package, an updated multimedia system and some additional driver convenience features.
The 2020 Enclave will again be available in Preferred, Essence, Premium and Avenir trims. New to the lineup this year is the Sport Touring Package, which adds a flashier-looking grille with body-color surround and 20-inch bright machined-aluminum wheels with contrasting Satin Graphite pockets; it’s available on the Enclave Essence trim level.
Inside, the Enclave gets an updated version of Buick’s multimedia system. The 8-inch touchscreen is standard across the lineup; navigation is optional. Other newly available features for 2020 include a high-definition rear camera and surround-vision camera system, as well as a four-way power lumbar seat adjuster with a driver and front-passenger massage feature.
Lastly, the top Avenir trim gets a new lower front panel that Buick says sets it apart from the lineup and gives it a sleeker, more upscale look. Two new exterior colors will be available on all trims: Champagne Gold Metallic and Dark Moon Blue Metallic; new for Avenir models is Rich Garnet Metallic.
What’s still missing, however, are safety features that many competitors — such as the Telluride and Palisade — make standard, such as forward collision warning with automatic braking. Enclave buyers still need to opt for a higher trim level for access to many active safety features.
The 2020 Buick Enclave will go on sale later in the summer starting at $41,195 (including a destination charge), the same as model-year 2019 base prices.
