Lower gas prices and the benefits of more cargo and passenger capacity are but a couple of the reasons why the midsize SUV market is red hot with no signs of cooling off anytime soon.
One of the more popular SUVs in this crowded field is the new 2017 Buick Enclave. The Enclave blends practicality, luxury, performance, and advanced safety features in a refined and elegant package. The 2017 version adds a new Sport Touring Edition that’s distinguished by a new Satin Black ice-toned “waterfall” grille, a new “ice blue” interior, three new color choices, and bespoke 20″ chrome cast aluminum sport wheels with Satin Black accents. Otherwise, the 2017 Enclave remains largely unchanged from the 2016 model. After all, why mess with success?
We’ve seen Buick’s design philosophy evolve during the past few years. The new Enclave exemplifies the marque’s design cues with its signature grille, large, available LED-accented Xenon HID headlights, a long, sloping hood, curvaceous silhouette, and rounded edges. Unlike other boxier midsize SUVs on the market, the overall effect is pleasingly elegant and understated. The Enclave’s smooth, artfully sculpted lines also improve aerodynamic efficiency. Chrome accents add just the right amount of bling while not being overdone.
The Enclave features some innovative touches, including available articulating headlights that swivel in the direction of travel as you steer. Available power-folding outside mirrors are also heated and auto-dimming for improved nighttime visibility. A handy power rear liftgate that opens with the touch of a button comes standard.
As one of the larger SUVS in the GM stable (the Enclave shares much of the same underpinnings and dimensions as the GMC Acadia and Chevy Traverse), the Enclave offers a roomy and exceptionally quiet interior with seating for up to eight people (when equipped with a 2nd-row bench seat). Comfortable 2nd-row Captain’s Chairs are standard. Head and legroom for both front and rear passengers is generous. And 3rd-row passengers will find it easy to slide into their seats thanks to the Enclave’s exclusive Smardslide™ seating that tilts the 2nd-row seats up and forward with just one hand.
The Enclave’s surrounds you in luxury with superbly crafted interior appointments. Luxuriate in soft, supple leather seats. Eight-way power heated and cooled front seats (an available passenger-seat option) with driver memory function are a popular option, along with a dual panoramic moonroof (power sliding in the front, fixed in the back). Rich wood-toned and satin chrome accents, a retro-looking, dash-mounted clock, premium soft-touch materials, and meticulous attention to detail rivals that of ultra-luxury vehicles costing thousands more.
Go ahead and pack all that you need for that long family road trip. Even with the 60/40 split folding 3rd-row seats in place, you’ll find room to spare – 23 cubic feet of it, to be exact. Fold down both the 3rd and 2nd-row seats and expand your cargo capacity to a liberal 115 cubic feet.
Today’s modern, on-the-go families desire the latest technology so that everyone can find their high-tech sweet spot. Accordingly, the 2017 Buick Enclave satisfies even the most demanding technophiles with a host of forward-thinking infotainment features. Buick’s IntelliLink connectivity suite lets you use voice commands and Bluetooth® wireless capabilities to play your favorite music, make calls, and more.
A large, crisp color touchscreen display with customizable home screen gives you instant access to a variety of functions. Add optional navigation for real-time traffic and voice-activated turn-by-turn navigation. The Enclave now offers convenient 4G LTE Wi-Fi, allow you to connect multiple devices for unparalleled access to your music, favorite Internet sites, email, games, and apps. The Enclave’s available rear-seat entertainment system comes with an 8-inch LCD flat screen, DVD player with remote, two sets of wireless headphones, and premium Bose® audio.
The Enclave also distinguishes itself when it comes to performance and handling. The Enclave’s proven and reliable Direct Injection, 3.6-liter V6 engine with Variable Valve Timing (VVT) generates up to 288 horsepower and 270 lb. ft. of torque for power when you need it. It’s mated to a smooth-shifting electronic 6-speed automatic transmission. The Enclave is rated to tow up to 4,500 pounds. Stabilitrak® with Traction Control, dual-flow suspension dampers, and a comfort-tuned suspension make for confident and compliant handling that helps to soak up the bumps. The available Active Intelligent All-Wheel Drive constantly monitors changing road conditions and adjusts vehicle traction accordingly.
An industry-first front center airbag provides added protection for front passengers in the event of a side-impact collision. It’s an example of the many innovations engineered to provide a higher standard of safety. Some of the many other safety technologies designed to enhance your peace of mind include:
Based on the 2016 model, the Enclave receives top safety scores from both the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) and the NHTSA (National Highway Transportation Safety Administration). You’ll also have the peace of mind that comes with a 4-year, 50,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty, a 6-year/70,000-mile limited powertrain warranty, and 6 years or 70,000 miles of 24/7 roadside assistance and courtesy transportation.
