5 reasons to buy the 2021 Buick Enclave

1. Standard third row seating

Looking for a large SUV with three rows of seating? The 2021 Enclave has you covered with space for up to seven passengers with a third-row bench seat and second-row captain's chairs. Great for large families!

2. Zesty V6 power

Every 2021 Buick Enclave is equipped with a powerful 3.6L V6 engine at 310 hp. This motivated engine is paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission to deliver a smooth ride, zippy acceleration, and capable performance.

3. Available all-wheel drive

The 2021 Enclave comes standard with front-wheel drive, although all-wheel drive is optional on all but the base Preferred trim. Buick's Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system automatically activates when you need it most to deliver power and traction in adverse road conditions, giving you some extra confidence behind the wheel.

4. Ample cabin and cargo space

With so many ways to configure the 2021 Enclave's cabin and cargo area, you can make this large SUV work with your storage and seating needs. Even with all seats intact, the 2021 Enclave offers 23.6 cu-ft. of dedicated cargo space. Need a little more room? The third-row seats easily fold down to extend storage up to 58 cu-ft. When cargo storage is your top priority, the second-row seats can also be folded down to create more than 97 cu-ft of space for luggage, sports equipment, furniture, and more. Meanwhile, this large SUV boasts an underfloor storage area that's 10" deep for additional small-item stowing.

5. Plenty of tech features

The 2021 Buick Enclave is generously appointed inside and out, but it really shines in its availability of tech features. Even on the base Preferred trim, you'll enjoy an eight-inch touchscreen display, smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto, satellite radio, and an available Wi-Fi hotspot.

Looking for even more tech equipment? The Avenir trim offers a robust 10-speaker sound system, a built-in navigation system, and wireless device charging. An innovative digital rearview mirror allows you to see clearly out the back of the vehicle even when the cargo area is fully loaded with all your stuff.
