    Spying: Buick Enclave Shows Off Its New Face


    • Say hello to the next Buick Enclave

    We have been wondering what the next-generation Buick Enclave would look like and now we have a general idea. Automotive News got their hands on some new spy shots showing an Enclave test mule sitting at a gas station. It appears Buick has made the Enclave less bulbous than the current model. The front end features Buick's new waterfall grille that debuted on the LaCrosse and a set of slim headlights. For the back, there's a new set of taillights and dual-exhaust system.

    If the Chevrolet Traverse is anything to go by, the Enclave will get the current 3.6L V6 producing 305 horsepower hooked up to a nine-speed automatic. There is the possibility of a 2.0L turbo-four with 255 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque.

    The next-generation Buick Enclave is expected to debut at the New York Auto Show.

    Since I do not have a subscription, Bing is my friend, so is this it? If so much less curvy and more SUV style which I like.

    Actually, I would rather have Buick keep the curvy look.  It makes the Enclave look less like the Traverse and Acadia.  The Enclave also need to have more features and amenities to distinguish from Chevy and GMC, and possibly build a basis for a Cadillac XT7.

    Agreed that the curvy look keeps it different from the Chevy and GMC and we know there will be a Cadillac version too.  For sure there will be a 2.0t for China because of the displacement tax, so maybe it will be sold here too.

    The Enclave is easily among the nicest, most upscale-styled larger SUV out there.

    I would like to see the domestics move to the European model of car styling, and basically run with the same language for 20-30 years, since that seems to work on that end. There is a glaring dicotomy where U.S. brands are expected to radically restyle on a regular & frequent basis yet that expectation doesn't seem to apply to foreign brands. I've always assumed that was from a lack of talent, but who knows. To wit: the minor whining over the current Camaro styling vs. the prior generation. My response to those whiners: suck it; go buy a Genesis if you value stylistic indivi— never mind; bad example.

    QFT Balthazar. Especially about the Camaro.

    My only gripe with the Camaro is the taillights.. as I swear they should have never went away from the quad taillights the C5 debuted with. Other than that.. in the trim I would take it.. SS and above..  its gorgeous in my opinion
