A novelty called the Buick Enclave for the Chinese market was first shown on the official image. Moreover, the second generation entered the American market back in 2017. However, both versions are significantly different.

General Motors decided to compete for market share with Toyota and its three-row crossover Higlander. For this, a new version of Buick Enclave was released for the Celestial market. So far, only the first teaser image and photos from the Chinese Patent Office are available to us. Judging by the presented live photos, the novelty has received a stylish design with a two-tiered head optics, a wide massive grille and a single “blade” extending across the entire width of the front of the company logo.

 In fact, General Motors introduces a new version of the second generation of the crossover to the Chinese market. For the Celestial Empire, the crossover received its own head optics, a revised body kit, and a cabin layout for 6 or 7 seats. The platform remains the same – C1XX from GM. Enclave length is 4,981 mm, width – 1,953 mm, height – 1,732 mm, with a wheelbase of 2,863 mm.

 For the local market will be offered a non-alternative 2.0-liter LSY turbo engine with a two-cylinder shut-off system at low loads. The maximum power will be 230 horsepower. Paired with him will be an automatic transmission in nine stages. The drive is only full.

On sale Buick Enclave will appear before the end of this fall. The cost will be revealed later.

Meanwhile, Buick decided to complete the production of the Cascada convertible. The same car was sold under the Holden brand in Australia and Vauxhall in the United Kingdom. I must say that the mid-size convertible Cascada has never been very popular.
