2025 Buick Enclave Debuts As All-New Ford Explorer Rival

The refreshed 2025 Ford Explorer just debuted in early February following a bit of an elongated wait, bringing forth some welcome updates in terms of exterior and interior styling, along with the addition of some new tech features and the all-new Ford Digital Experience software. Production of the popular crossover is currently scheduled to begin in May, but as has long been the case, it will face plenty of rivals in that hotly contested space. One of those competitors will be the just-revealed 2025 Buick Enclave – which has been unveiled roughly a year after the refreshed 2024 Envision.

Like the Explorer, the 2025 Buick Enclave is a full-size crossover, in this case marking the dawn of that model’s third-generation. As one would expect from a full redesign, the new Envision touts a bevy of updates inside and out, starting on the exterior with styling inspired by the Wildcat EV concept. Additionally, the revamped model is longer, wider, and taller than its predecessor, and is available in three trim levels – Preferred, Sport Touring (ST), and Avenir.

Inside the cabin, the 2025 Buick Enclave boasts a massive, standard 30-inch infotainment screen, a wireless charger, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a bevy of standard safety tech, and available Super Cruise across the entire lineup. As is typically the case, each trim level touts its own unique features and styling elements inside and out.

Power for the 2025 Buick Enclave comes from GM’s turbocharged 2.5L I-4 LK0 engine, which is rated to send 328 horsepower and 326 pound-feet of torque to either the front or all four wheels via the automaker’s eight-speed automatic transmission. Orders for the all-new Enclave are expected to open later this summer, though pricing has yet to be announced.

    Let’s face it, wouldn’t you rather drive a Buick ?

    With Ford quality control problems and not willing to fix it along with 2025 Explorer prices raising substantially the Enclave will take sales.
