2017 Buick Enclave OVERVIEW

The quintessential Buick of large crossovers, the Enclave manages to be prestigious without going overboard. It's spacious, whisper-quiet, and luxurious to a point. When you consider everything included in its base price, the Enclave also becomes a relative bargain.

What's New for 2017

Buyers can now choose a Sport Touring Edition of the Enclave with unique exterior styling.

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 the same three trim levels as other Buicks:


Comes fully equipped with second-row captain's chairs, power front seats, a power liftgate, tri-zone climate control, remote start, a rearview camera, rear parking sensors, and a six-speaker sound system with satellite radio and integrated smartphone apps. Also included in the $39,990 price are 18-inch wheels and xenon headlamps. The Convenience comes with front-wheel drive only.


For $44,690, adds a leather interior with heated front seats and additional passenger adjustments. You also get a power adjustable steering wheel, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and 19-inch wheels. A second-row bench becomes available at this level for eight-passenger capacity.


Tops off the Enclave with ventilated front seats, a 10-speaker Bose sound system, power-folding and auto-dimming side mirrors, forward collision alert, and lane departure warning. The Premium stickers at $48,550.

In addition to all-wheel drive, the Leather and Premium are eligible for individual options such as a panoramic sunroof, a rear entertainment system, navigation, and an upgraded Bose surround-sound system. Both models can also be outfitted in Tuscan Edition or Sport Touring Edition trim. The Tuscan comes with a bronze accents on the grille and wheels, while the Sport Touring get satin black trim in the same places. Both editions feature 20-inch chrome wheels.

CarsDirect Tip

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 desire when shopping in this league. The Tuscan and Sport Touring packages are worthy additions at just $995 each.
