2018 Enclave

From the information I have seen, today is the day the 2018 Enclave will be revealed at the New York Auto Show. Has anyone seen anything?

The reveal is around 7:30PM EST from Pier59 photography studio in New York. The reveal will be the Enclave Avenir (their new "more upscale" trim level). On the Buick Facebook page they mentioned that it might be streamed live but they didn't say where.

Also I posted a teaser picture here a few weeks ago:

Re: 2018 Enclave

The 2018 Enclave mini-site actually went live before the reveal:

http://www.buick.com/enclave-mid-siz...ex.html#/index

So far I am not impressed with the outside. The front end carries the new Buick design but from the A-pillar back it looks like the 2009-2017 Traverse
Maybe it will grow on me ...

More notes from the reveal:
- they moved the porti-vents back to the side panels instead of on top of the hood
- foot activated power liftgate
- powered third row fold
- available cabin air ionizer
- tighter turning radius
- more interior space
- the Cadillac rearview mirror camera (lets you switch the interior rearview mirror from standard mirror to wide-angle that eliminates the headrests/etc.)
- Avenir is definitely the top trim and comes fully loaded with everything. Can't wait to see the sticker price on that

Trying to type as they reveal so I'm sure I missed a lot. Check out the mini-site above for more info.

I honestly think it looks gorgeous. I'm really happy that it has more hp than the current one

Re: 2018 Enclave

My comments: don't like the absense of waterfall grill. Also, don't like the dash at all. Sad to say, like the 2018 Traverse better.

Re: 2018 Enclave

I do like the new technology they've added but I don't care much for the looks. IMO the grill looks like it went back in time and they retroed the rendezvous.

IMO the current refreshed 2013-2017 Enclave looks much better. But I understand it is time for a remodel. I think they could have done a little better with the design though.


Did they remove the interior ambient lighting?
