My thoughts are #1, the price, #2 the stigma that Buick can't get away from in that Buick's are for my Grand Parents not me and #3 with regards to the Enclave it is freaking way too old!  The new model can't come quick enough, 10 years between significant changes is pathetic and is costing Buick.  For myself, I look at the price on most of the Buick models and realize and get better value with a Chevrolet, plus Chevy's car lines are more flexible from tiny cruze to the full size Impala.  If it weren't for the fact that China love's their Buick's they would have gone the way of Olds, Pontiac, and Saturn a long time ago.

With the 2018 Enclave expected to be shown at the New York auto show in a couple months, maybe a lot of would be buyers are waiting to see what the newer model looks like and offers.

I know, I would  Grin

That doesn't explain Buick's overall sales drop.  One model isn't going to carry them, oh wait the Encore already is. My bad......

Although, unfortunately made overseas, the Envision is a nice vehicle, though grossly overpriced.

The local Buick dealer has one on the lot for only a few thousand less then a loaded 2017 Enclave Huh?

The pricing part has me baffled.

I agree.  I saw an Envision on the showroom floor last week after I test drove a 2017 Acadia.  The Buick had a much nicer interior with higher quality materials than the Acadia.  I really liked the car and the fact that it only has two rows of seats would work well for us.

There is no way however that I will buy or lease a vehicle made in China!

I agree with this.

At one time I thought the same thing but what I have come to realize is the John Q public doesn't really know much about upcoming products. There is way more info out there now about upcoming changes etc.. but most people aren't following the forums or online reading up on the latest info like we are.

My take on the slow month is the price of the Enclave is in the near lux to Lux price range. I'm not sure about what incentives Buick was running in Jan but I would guess that they weren't like December. Maybe people that didn't buy in Dec looking for better discounts didn't see any good incentives in Jan are waiting for a better deal to pop up.  Also the aging product line compared to others that were updated recently (QX60, MDX, Pathfinder, Pilot, etc...)

Which prob means that the new Enclave is going to be even more expensive at the top trim levels.
