Buick’s Enclave large CUV gets a midcycle refresh for the 2022 model year with styling changes and safety upgrades.
The updated 7-passenger, 3-row Enclave features new front and rear fascia, grille and lighting, including LED taillamps and updated wheels. The CUV’s top-level Avenir trim and Sport Touring appearance package give buyers dynamic options to best fit their lifestyles.
Standard for all ’22 Enclave trims is Buick Driver Confidence Plus, a suite of nine active safety features: automatic emergency braking, front pedestrian braking, lane keep assist with lane departure warning, lane change alert with side blindspot alert, rear park assist, forward collision alert, following distance indicator, rear cross traffic alert and IntelliBeam automatic high beams.
Rear park assist was standard on the previous Enclave, but the other eight features now are standard, Buick says.
Driver assistance, convenience and infotainment features include standard front park assist and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, plus available rear camera mirror, rear pedestrian alert and color head-up display.
Interior features include a restyled center console (pictured below) with push-button Electronic Transmission Range Select, premium soft-touch materials throughout the cabin and available heated, ventilated and massaging front seats.
The ’22 Enclave is powered by a 310-hp 3.6L V-6 linked to a nine-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard but all-wheel drive is available on all but the base Essence trim.
The Avenir trim includes unique front and rear fascia, grille, body-color lowers, taillamps, liftgate emblem and wheels; unique interior trim appliques and seat sew pattern with piping; chrome cargo sill plate; heated, ventilated and massaging front seats; available Continuous Damping Control active suspension technology; adaptive cruise control; and enhanced automatic emergency braking.
