What’s New for 2022: Buick

Buick leans into crossover SUVs for 2022, with its entire lineup devoted to road-friendly comfy cruisers. GM's premium brand counts only four models for 2022, but the Encore GX should nudge its namesake Encore into oblivion any time soon. 

With all the crossovers to choose from, Buick relies on its cosmopolitan Avenir trim to etch out any distinction from GM's other crossover vehicles.

The pared down lineup, free of legacy sedans and under-appreciated wagons, rises and falls on its Enclave three-row SUV.  The refreshed flagship noses to the front of GM's many mid-size crossover SUVs, and proves that Buick still matters in markets other than China. 

Here's what's new and what remains for 2022 Buick models.
