The Buick Enclave is a large three-row crossover SUV with seating up to eight passengers. The Enclave is larger than most luxury-brand competitors. As an upscale family hauler, the Enclave is quiet, refined, and spacious.
Well-engineered upon arrival in 2007, the Buick Enclave remains competitive despite a lack of major changes to the model. Unfortunately, its age is beginning to show - without an updated engine, its fuel economy and acceleration have started to lag behind newer competitors.
The Buick Enclave's performance is standard for a large crossover SUV - acceleration could be improved and most of the engine's power goes into shifting the Enclave's weight. The ride has been skillfully tuned over the years, enabling a driving experience to be almost completely without impact. At the same time, the large vehicle is still responsive enough to react capably and predictably throughout corners.
The Buick Enclave faces many luxury vehicle brands, and all offer more extensive lists of available equipment. Despite being on the market for over six years, Buick Enclave has yet to have a major redesign for the vehicle. The Buick remains a roomy package and its ride, handling, and quiet drive can attest to that.
The Buick Enclave comes with a 3.6L V6 engine under the hood and with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. Despite its age, newer Enclaves have began to include a lot of the features modern car buyers have come to expect. Bluetooth connectivity, navigation, and a host of other optional upgrades are a welcome addition to the Enclave's luxurious cabin.
