The standard 2018 Buick Enclave will now start from $40,970 including destination, about $1,000 more than the previous model.

The price difference not only gets you a more attractive crossover, but the new model is 400-pounds lighter than its predecessor while increasing cargo space and fuel economy. But for those wanting to see what Buick's new Avenir luxury sub-brand is all about, there's a price to pay.

The 2018 Buick Enclave Avenir is priced from $54,390 for the front-wheel-drive model, while the all-wheel-drive variant is $56,690.

The Avenir model adds more luxurious upgrades, including a three-dimensional grille flanked by chrome wings, 20-inch wheels, a Chestnut or Ebony interior with accent piping and contrast stitching, embroidered front headrests, wood-trimmed steering wheel, in-vehicle ionizer, and Avenir-branded door sills.

Other trim versions available include the 2018 Buick Enclave Essence, starting from $45,190, with all-wheel drive costing $2,000 extra. The Premium trim package is priced at $48,990 with all-wheel drive demanding a $2,300 premium.
