2019 Buick Enclave OVERVIEW

The 2019 Buick Enclave continues as a leader in the mid-size crossover SUV segment. After receiving a much-needed makeover last year, the new Enclave arrives at dealerships with four trim levels and a single powertrain combination. Starting at $40,995 (all prices include the $995 destination charge), the 2019 Enclave offers multiple convenience and safety features, drives surprisingly well, and is a great option for those looking for a reliable daily-driver.

What's New for 2019

The Buick Enclave was completely redesigned in 2018 and arrives at dealerships mainly unchanged for the 2019 model year.

Choosing Your Buick Enclave

The 2019 Buick Enclave is a well-appointed crossover that's offered in four easy-to-configure trim levels: the base Preferred, Essence, Premium, and Avenir. Each Enclave comes standard with front-wheel drive, and all but the base can be had with all-wheel drive ($2,000 more on the Essence trim, $2,300 more on Premium and Avenir models).

All Enclaves are powered by the same 3.6-liter V6 engine that produces 310 horsepower and 268 pound-feet of torque. This engine is mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission. In FWD configuration, the Enclave returns an EPA-estimated 18 miles per gallon city, 26 mpg highway, and 21 combined. AWD variants achieve 17 mpg city, 25 highway, and 20 combined.

One of the biggest improvements in 2018 was updated suspension technology which really enhances corner and rough road driving. In fact, the Buick Enclave’s noise reduction and sound deadening features rank well against others in the same segment. The inside of the 2019 Buick Enclave is roomy and comfortable, and first- and second-row passengers enjoy rather easy access. The third-row seating is well balanced and can fit two adults.


The base 2019 Buick Enclave is the Preferred, which starts at $40,995. The Preferred is well equipped with standard features and tech that includes keyless open and push-button start, tri-zone climate control, rear park assist, a hands-free power liftgate, and smartphone connectivity. An eight-inch infotainment touchscreen permits Bluetooth connectivity and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration, and there's a total of six USB ports located throughout the cabin. The Preferred also offers a built-in WiFi 4G hotspot, however, consumers have to sign up for Onstar® to continue data streaming.

The Preferred can be enhanced with a few GM convenience packages. The Luxury Package ($1,395) adds a chrome grille with a black mesh insert, and molded assist steps offered in a slew of colors. The Hit the Road Package ($1,175) brings roof rack cross rails and molded assist steps.


The Essence is the first trim to offer all-wheel drive, adds a few safety enhancements, and starts at $42,995. This trim provides consumers with leather-appointed first- and second-row seats, lane change alert with blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and an in-vehicle air ionizer. A three-month trial subscription to SiriusXM Radio has also been added to the Essence. This trim can also be upgraded with the Luxury and Hit The Road Packages, or a Trailering Package ($650) that includes a trailer hitch, increased towing capacity (5,000-pound capacity), and an engine cooling system.


The Premium kicks things up a few notches and starts at $49,095. The Premium features forward collision warning, lane keeping assist, lane departure warning, low speed forward automatic emergency braking, and front pedestrian braking safety systems. It also offers automatic heated front seats and steering wheel, ventilated front seats, and second-row heated seats. A Bose 10-speaker audio system rounds out the standard upgrades offered on this trim.

The impressive enhancement offered with the Premium is the Experience Buick Package ($3,250). This adds a power moonroof, 20-inch alloy wheels, a heavy-duty cooling system, and the rest of the contents of the Trailering Package. The Luxury, Hit The Road, and Trailering Package all return.


The Enclave range-topper is the Avenir trim which starts at $54,495. This trim builds on the Premium and adds a power dual moonroof, a wireless device charging system, a surround-view camera system, and a unique grille and interior styling. Second row 40/40 captains chairs and third-row 60/40-split row seating are standard with the Avenir, as is an eight-way power driver seat. The Avenir can be spiced up even further by adding the Avenir Technology Package ($2,095), which brings a premium suspension kit, adaptive cruise control, forward automatic emergency braking, and upper active aero shutters.

CarsDirect Tip

The 2019 Buick Enclave is an impressive mid-size crossover SUV and offers consumers a good bang for the buck. Among the four trims, the Premium offers consumers the best value. Those living in cold-weather climates would benefit by adding the all-wheel-drive system for added traction during poor road conditions.
