The Enclave is exactly the crossover you would expect Buick to build. It's spacious, whisper-quiet, and luxurious to a point. Add to that its high content for the money, and you can see why Enclave sales continue to climb.

Choosing Your Buick Enclave
The Enclave has always impressed us with its sheer interior volume. Up to eight adults fit comfortably in the upscale cabin, and cargo space tops out at 115 cubic feet, more than any other premium-branded crossover.
As in previous years, the Enclave carries a 3.6-liter V6 that delivers 288 horsepower to the front wheels and a six-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive is available on all but the base model for $2,000 extra. It's worth noting that the Enclave can tow up to 4,500 pounds, enough for most pleasure crafts and pop-up campers.
The Enclave is available in three trim levels:
In addition to all-wheel drive, the Leather and Premium are eligible for options such as a panoramic sunroof, a rear entertainment system, navigation, and an upgraded Bose surround-sound system.
Although every Enclave is well equipped, buyers tend to shy away from the Convenience model and very few are actually kept in stock. The Leather and Premium offer the appointments and features most folks expect when shopping in this league.
