    Spying: 2018 Buick Enclave Sweats It Out

      Caught! Next Buick Enclave enjoying the heat.

    The Buick Enclave and Chevrolet Traverse are well past their sell-by-date. GM knows this and will be introducing new versions of both within the next year. We haven't seen any spy shots of either model, til today.

    Autoblog published some spy shots of the next-generation Buick Enclave undergoing some hot-weather testing in Death Valley. From the shots, it looks like Buick will be retaining the shape of the current model. Although, it looks like the roofline has changed somewhat towards the back. We can pick out the new grille that we first saw on the new LaCrosse along with a set of LED running lights.

    The Enclave is expected to use a stretched version of the Chi platform that currently underpins the new GMC Acadia.

    Interesting, that is weighted down with what ever is in the trailer. 

    So is the Chi platform part of the Cha Cha Cha Chia family? ;)

    Cool, to see, I hope we see this in the next 6 months at an autoshow, Hopefully Detroit.

    9-speed transmission?  I know GM has the 8, and they're coming out with a 10... didn't know they were doing a 9...

    The 9-speed auto is the FWD transmission that GM and Ford are going to share.  Ford did the work on the RWD 10-speed, GM did the work on the FWD 9-speed, and they're sharing the tech of both with each other.  Seems like a pretty fair swap.  Ford has used GM FWD 6-speeds for a number of years.
