2020 Buick Enclave Gets Tech Upgrades And A New Sport Touring Trim

The second-generation Buick Enclave will get tech upgrades and a new Sport Touring trim in 2020. The seven-seat SUV, the largest offered by Buick, features the same platform as the GMC Acadia and Chevy Traverse.

The new model will offer a new Sport Touring package as well as the current Touring and Sport Appearance packages. The Sport Touring package will include 20-inch aluminum wheels, as well as a distinctive Sport grille with body-color surround, which will replace the current chrome band.

The Avenir trim displays a modified lower panel that matches the rest of the body and a new Rich Garnet Metallic exterior color, giving the SUV a shiny burgundy finish. Champagne Gold Metallic and Dark Moon Blue Metallic are also available for all trims.

Inside, the 2020 Enclave features faux-wood and metal trimmings across the dashboard. Though not quite as upscale as similar SUVs like the Infiniti QX60, Acura MDX, or upcoming Lincoln Aviator, the Enclave still affords quite a bit of bang for the buck.

All trim levels include as standard a frameless 8-inch diagonal touch screen as well as Buick’s next-generation infotainment system. The 2020 Enclave also features connected navigation and Sirius XM with 360L2, thereby expanding streaming and content options. In addition, the Enclave includes a rearview mirror which is also a camera that shows what’s behind you in case your vision is blocked by cargo or passengers.

The SUV’s cargo space will remain at 23.6 cubic feet behind the third row, 58 cubic feet with the third row folded, and 97.6 feet with both second- and third-row seats folded. Also, a hands-free power liftgate with an LED logo projector is standard on all trims.

The new Enclave’s engine will also remain unchanged with a 310-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 engine with a nine-speed automatic transmission. Meanwhile, the 266 pound-feet of torque can tow up to 5,000 pounds. The standard stop-start system affords 18 mpg in the city, 26 mpg on the highway, and 21 mpg combined. Safety features include a standard rearview mirror camera and rear park assist.
