The 2025 Buick Enclave's Redesign

The exterior design of the Enclave has been updated for 2025 and includes a revised front fascia with a new grille, checkmark-style LED headlamps, and the latest iteration of the Buick logo mounted to the hood. The Enclave's rear styling is also new for 2025 and features a full-width LED taillight design.

Depending on trim, the 2025 Enclave rolls on either 20- or 22-inch wheels. As of April 2024, exact exterior dimensions have not been announced, but Buick said the 2025 Enclave will be longer, wider, and taller than the model it replaces.

New Features Include a Massive Screen and Available Hands-Free Driving

The 2025 Buick Enclave will be available in three trims: the entry-level Preferred, the sporty Sport Touring, and the luxury-oriented Avenir.

The 2025 Enclave's list of standard technology and features includes Buick's QuietTuning suspension system, an auto-sense power liftgate, 20-inch wheels, customizable interior ambient lighting, a 12-speaker Bose audio system, and heated and power-adjustable front seats.

The Enclave Sport Touring ups the ante with 20-inch machine-finished wheels with gloss-black accents, a trim-specific gloss-black grille, ST badging, a flat-bottom steering wheel, and ST-exclusive interior trim that includes embroidered headrests.

Stepping up to the range-topping Enclave Avenir nets 22-inch wheels, a panoramic moonroof, a unique walk-up exterior lighting animation, a suspension featuring dynamic dampers for a smoother ride, rain-sensing windshield wipers, heated second-row outboard seats, and added ventilation and massaging functions for front-seat occupants.

All Enclave Avenir models feature Buick's Power Package as standard, which tosses in a head-up display, one-touch folding second-row seats, and power-folding third-row seats. The Power Package can be added to either the Preferred or ST models for an additional charge.

Regardless of trim, the Enclave comes standard with a 30.0-inch digital display that encompasses the gauges and infotainment system, the latter of which features integrated Google Assistant and Google Maps. Additional standard niceties consist of wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, wireless phone charging, and seven exterior camera views — that number can go up to nine depending on the selected options.

On the safety front, all 2025 Enclaves boast standard OnStar with Automatic Crash Response, blind-zone steering assist, intersection automatic emergency braking, traffic sign recognition, lane-keep assist, and lane-departure warning.

Optional across all Enclave trims is General Motors' Super Cruise hands-free driving system — a first for a vehicle wearing Buick's tri-shield badge. In addition to unlocking the ability to drive hands-free on 750,000 miles of North American roads by the end of 2025, selecting the Super Cruise option adds tech such as driver-attention assist and enhanced automatic park assist. Avenir models equipped with Super Cruise also receive a rear camera mirror.

The 2025 Enclave's Turbo Power Provides More Potency

Changes to the 2025 Buick Enclave are more than just skin-deep. Under the hood you'll find a new 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder in place of the 3.6-liter V6 that occupied the engine bay of the previous-generation Enclave. The new turbo four is rated at 328 horsepower and 326 pound-feet of torque, representing improvements of 18 horsepower and a healthy 60 lb-ft of torque compared with the outgoing V6.

Further powertrain changes include an eight-speed automatic transmission, down from the nine gears offered in the 2024 Enclave. As before, both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive are on offer.

Fuel economy will be announced at a later date, but Buick said the 2025 Enclave will be capable of towing up to 5,000 pounds. That matches the towing prowess of the previous V6-powered Enclave.
