New Version of Buick Enclave Coming to China
Buick recently made it official: an Enclave crossover model will soon be making its way to China.
This all-new “midsize-plus” Buick Enclave was designed specifically for the Chinese market, and it will be the first seven-seat crossover produced in the country.
“The arrival of the all-new Enclave will further enhance Buick’s SUV portfolio in China,” said Molly Peck, executive director of Buick for SAIC-GM. “It will join the Encore, Encore GX, and Envision, giving Buick a strong presence in the small, compact, midsize, and large SUV segments.”

On the exterior, the Chinese Enclave features a redesigned grille with a new shield layout and wing-shaped daytime running lights. The rear includes an integrated tailgate spoiler and taillights united by a long chrome strip.
In the cabin, an asymmetrical two-tone dash frames a central touch screen. A new space-saving Electronic Precision Shift system is located on the console. The seats are configured in a two-three-two setup, with electric folding capabilities for the two rear rows. A three-zone climate control system, Buick’s QuietTuning technology, and more than 40 storage areas add extra utility and comfort.
Expect the Chinese Enclave to carry a new 233-horsepower 2.0-liter turbo engine paired with a nine speed automatic transmission.
This midsize-plus Buick Enclave isn’t likely to be sold in the U.S. However, its design foreshadows some of what we can expect from the all-new regular full-size Enclave, which will be unveiled in America for the 2021 model year.
