, Automotive Editor -

Buick has done a good job of reinventing itself with more youthful design and technology in recent years. The Enclave offers seating for seven or eight, decent fuel economy, refined road manners and quiet comfort. All of this has made it the industry's best-selling three-row luxury crossover and a cornerstone of the brand’s renaissance, which has reintroduced Buick to a new generation of luxury customers.

What's New for 2014

Changes to the Enclave are minor. GM’s camera-based forward collision alert and lane departure system, which warns drivers of possible crash threats is now available. New standard features include an IntelliLink Color Touch radio with SiriusXM and dual charge-only USB ports at the rear of the center console.

The only engine available is a smooth 3.6-liter V6 packing 288 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. It delivers energetic performance and excellent fuel economy with the help of the modern technologies like variable valve timing, direct fuel injection and an electronic throttle.

Estimated EPA fuel economy comes in at 17 mpg city and 24 mpg highway with standard front-wheel drive, or 16 mpg city with 22 mpg with optional all-wheel drive. A six speed automatic is standard on all Enclaves.

The upscale CUV is available in three trim levels:

The base Convenience includes 18-inch wheels, a power liftgate, power front seats, a rearview camera and park assist, IntelliLink communications and Color Touch audio system with its 7-inch display. The standard airbag array includes three-row side-curtain bags that stay inflated longer in the event of a rollover, and an industry-first "center-side" airbag in the center console that protects driver and front-seat passenger from opposite-side impacts.

As its name suggests, the key upgrade for the mid-range Leather is leather upholstery. Other extras include heated front seats, a power-adjustable passenger seat and 19-inch aluminum wheels. Seven-passenger seating is standard; unlike the Convenience, however, an eight-passenger seating configuration is optional.

At the top of the Enclave lineup, the Premium builds on the already-loaded Leather with amenities like heated and cooled front seats, articulating headlights and a Bose 10-speaker audio upgrade. Standalone options include all-wheel drive, plus a rear-seat DVD entertainment system, eight-passenger seating, Bose audio, navigation and a power sunroof.
