2022 Buick Enclave review: Our expert's take

By Brian Normile

Looks like: The new Envision, but bigger

Competes with: Acura MDX, Hyundai Palisade, Infiniti QX60, Kia Telluride, Lexus RX 350L 

Powertrain: 310-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6; nine-speed automatic transmission; front- or all-wheel drive

Hits dealerships: Third quarter of 2021

While not as comprehensive as the updates to the 2021 Buick Envision, the Enclave is getting a revised look along with new features for 2022 that should help it better compete in the crowded premium and near-premium three-row SUV class.

New Looks Up Front

Exterior design changes are mostly limited to the Enclave’s face, which now wears a restyled grille, headlights and bumper. In profile, the Enclave still has pretty much the same rounded, large SUV lines.

Buick also changed up the rear styling slightly and says the Enclave gets an updated wheel portfolio. That means more wheel choices for shoppers but, sadly, not a book large enough to hold multiple 20-inch wheels.

The luxurious Enclave Avenir gets its own unique front and rear styling, including unique taillights as well as trim-specific wheels. The Enclave Sport Touring also gets a trim-specific grille and set of 20-inch wheels.

Interior Updates

Inside, the Enclave gets a new center console design with a new push-button gear selector, as well as available heated, cooled and massaging front seats. On the tech front, the Enclave will now come standard with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Enclave Avenir models will get unique interiors with different seat stitching and more premium materials.

Under the Hood

The 310-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 and nine-speed automatic transmission carry over from the 2021 model, and the 2022 will still be available in either front- or all-wheel drive. Avenir models will offer an available continuously damping suspension in a bid for a more luxurious ride.

Standard Safety Tech

We’ve lamented that advanced safety features were only available on higher trim levels of the Enclave, but for 2022, Buick will make its Driver Confidence Plus Package standard equipment. The package includes forward collision alert with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection, lane departure warning with lane keep assist, blind spot warning with lane change assist and rear cross-traffic alert, a follow distance alert and automatic high beams.

Pricing and Release Date

Not Your Grandpa's Buick!

Shopping for a new vehicle ranks right up at the top of my list of things I dread doing. So when we decided to replace my 11 year old car, we took the time to do research and read reviews of the newer models. Being very tall and having several vehicle requirements, we narrowed the search. Five dealerships later, those did not pan out! Out of frustration, we decided to just go to the auto mall at Southpoint. As we wandered the lots, a salesman, Tarik Adas approached us from the Hendricks Buick/GMC dealership. Such a delightful and well informed salesman! No high pressure sale; he just listened to what we were looking for. He made several suggestions to try out for size and then showed us a vehicle that checked all the boxes and then some! Dealing with Abdul Aldanab in the Finance Department was very easy and he was able to offer us some options and extras that will help protect our new vehicle for years to come. We certainly did not go with the intention of purchasing a Buick, but we are loving the new ride! And like the commercial says . . . “It’s not your grandpa’s Buick!

Best vehicle I've ever purchased

I did a lot of research before I purchased my 2022 Buick Enclave and I'm not disappointed. The SUV is beautiful inside and out. Well made, and very comfortable. I'm really loving mine.

Buick Aviner

I thought I was downsizing from my Escalade, yes in bulk but not in room and comfort. I absolutely love the Aviner. I was skeptical about the change but I am glad I did it.
