New nose and tail for 2022 Enclave
Driver assistance package standard along with wireless smart phone projection
Buick has given the Enclave a facelift for 2022. It brings an updated and massive grille, slimline headlights, and adds more driver assistance features to the list of standard gear.
The 2022 Buick Enclave was previewed earlier in the year, but this is the first time for us to see it inside and out. And it’s quite the outside now, thanks to those ultra-slim headlights that sit above a reworked front bumper. The grille is much more pronounced than before, especially in the Avenir trim pictured with its mesh insert.
At the back, the changes are smaller, with a new rear fascia and clear taillights. The wheels are changed, and that’s the extent of the cosmetics.
Inside, the 2022 Enclave adds a new center console that ditches a large gear selector for Buick’s push-button selector as found on some of its other models. More soft-touch materials have been added and there is a new steering wheel.
Standard safety features expand with the addition of Buick Driver Confidence Plus on all models. It includes automatic emergency braking, front pedestrian braking, lane keep assist, blind spot alert, rear park assist, rear cross traffic alert, and automatic high beams. Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are added to the infotainment system for 2022.
Carrying over are the 310 hp 3.6L V6 and nine-speed automatic as well as available all-wheel drive. Pricing was not part of the information Buick presented, so expect that later in the year when the 2022 Buick Enclave goes on sale.
