Avenir in French means “future,” and that’s exactly what Buick hopes drivers will experience while driving this innovative new luxury mid-size 2024 Buick Enclave Avenir. 

Every line, panel, curve, stitch, and dial offers a distinctive character, starting with the intricately designed Enclave Avenir grille.

The premium and sleek futuristic looking LED headlamps light up the road. When the vehicle is at a speed of 25 mph or more, IntelliBeam technology automatically turns the vehicle’s high beams on or off depending on traffic conditions.

Driving the eye-catching Emperor Blue Metallic 2024 Buick Enclave to Beverly Hills, I appreciated the power of the 3.6L, V6 engine working in tandem with a 9-speed automatic electronically controlled transmission. With overdrive and Driver Shift Control, it can deliver 310 horsepower, and efficient performance and effortless automatic shifting.

Its premium five-link rear suspension offers a smooth and quiet ride on the stylish 20′ aluminum wheels featuring a stylish Pearl Nickel finish.

Safety features include the modern Head-Up Display on the windshield for easy viewing of speed, and speed limit zones. Adaptive Cruise Control on the heated steering wheel offers a following distance indicator to keep the car at a safe distance from the car in front. The vehicle self-accelerates and self-brakes to maintain the designated distance. There is enhanced Automatic Emergency Braking that comes in handy when the cars in front slam on their brakes.

With HD Surround Vision there are no blind spots to worry about while maneuvering into a parking spot. There is also Rear Park Assist, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Front Park Alert and Forward Collision Alert to make parallel parking a breeze and less stressful.

One can slide or tilt the panoramic moonroof to allow sunshine, moonlight and fresh air in with a touch of a button. The fixed rear skylight has a power sunshade to open or close if it gets too bright and warm in the rear seats.

This mid-size SUV is the ultimate family car offering 3-rows for up to 7 passengers. The perforated Whisper Beige leather seats and Ebony interior accents exude luxury. What I liked most about the two front bucket seats is the massage capabilities. It’s sculpted to deliver the optimum amount of support and comfort while driving. I also appreciated how the ventilated front seats keep cool and comfortable when the summer temperature soars. 

The second-row also offers two comfortable bucket seats and Enclave’s Smart Slide. With the pull of a handle, the second-row seating makes access to the third row easier. Smart Slide also allows the passenger-side seat to pitch as it slides for even easier access. Even with an empty forward-facing child seat installed one can use the LATCH system.

The third-row has a 60/40 split bench that is ideal for transporting extra kids to team practices and carpooling to school.

Other features at the rear end of the vehicle include advanced hands-free power programmable liftgate. The cargo area can open and close with the push of a button or sweep of one’s foot.

Most of all I appreciated the LED Buick Logo projection below the back bumper of the car. Not only is this activation a nice welcome sign, but also helps direct one to their car parked in a dark garage and under a midnight black sky.

Standard SUV’s range from 13 to 102 miles a gallon. The 2024 Buick Enclave Avenir gets 17 City 25 Highway. The base rate begins at $57,500.
