2018 Buick Enclave Price, Review, Ratings and Pictures

After about a decade, the 2018 Buick Enclave finally gets a complete overhaul this year. It continues to offer a premium experience to its buyers, but the prices keep it out of range for most practical American buyers. The cabin now feels even more premium and gets plenty of new creature comforts and driver aids and therefore sees a price hike of $1,000 over the previous model year. The 2018 Buick Enclave price starts at $40,990 including the $995 destination fee. 

Featuring a 4-trim lineup of the Enclave, the 2018 Buick Enclave MSRP can be an expense of $40,990-$56,795 this season. Having said that, it simply translates to the fact that the range-leader 2018 Buick Enclave Avenir will cost you $15,805 more than the base Enclave for enhanced specs and assets.

We Recommend

Since the prices of the higher trims tend to get very high for most buyers, we recommend sticking to the 2018 Buick Enclave Essence trim which already features plenty of creature comforts. 


The three-row 2018 Enclave SUV gets its power from a 3.6L V6 under its hood that churns out a healthy 310 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque, borrowed from the Chevrolet Acadia. The 2018 Buick Enclave interior continues to offer a spacious cabin for both the passengers and their cargo. The competition is pretty tough for the Enclave as rivals offer great value too. The Acura MDX offers great reliability and efficiency, while the INFINITI QX60 gets a whole load of creature comforts as standard. The Honda Pilot on the other hand is a practical offering at an affordable price tag.
