Detroit automaker General Motors Co. has debuted the 2018 Buick Enclave Avenir, which includes an extensive set of standard features and premium materials throughout the vehicle.
“The Enclave has been a successful formula for the Buick brand, with sales results that have defied traditional product cycles, and 90 percent of customers purchasing in the top two trim levels,” says Duncan Aldred, vice president of Global Buick and GMC. “It’s a beacon for the modern, attainable luxury Buick stands for and is a natural place to launch Avenir.”
All Avenir models will feature a 3-dimensional mesh grille paired with chrome wings inspired by Buick concept cars. Additional features include 20-inch, six-spoke wheels with a pearl nickel finish, chestnut and ebony interior with piping on the seats and contrasting stitching, embroidered first-row headrests, and Avenir-scripted sill plates on all four doors.
The Avenir also features an 8-inch diagonal reconfigurable cluster display, a 360-degree surround vision camera system for parking, and a rear camera mirror that can function as a traditional mirror or as a camera.
Available adaptive cruise control and full speed forward automatic braking offer safety options and a premium suspension with continuously variable real-time damping (CDC) provides a comfortable ride, with enhanced body control and handling in Sport mode.
The model will continue to be manufactured in Lansing, and goes on sale in the fall of 2017. The Avenir is the seventh new Buick model introduced in less than two years. Pricing will be announced in the coming weeks.
