Buick Enclave
Buick Enclave 2018 4-door SUV Trim Shown: 2018 Premium 4-door SUV AWD Automatic

The large, three-row Buick Enclave crossover is being treated to its first redesign in about a decade. The 2018 model promises improved fuel economy, increased interior space, and a technology smorgasbord. A 3.6-liter V6 teamed with a nine-speed automatic transmission sees output increase 14 hp to 302. Combined with a start/stop system, this powertrain should bolster efficiency over the 15 mpg we recorded with the outgoing model. This setup has a towing capacity of 5,000 pounds and is available in front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. Buick says significant attention has been paid to quieting the cabin, and second- and third-row seats fold flat for loading cargo. Advanced safety features such as automatic emergency braking and forward-collision warning are available, though not on all of the trim levels. Full-speed AEB is available only on the top-level Avenir.

Buick Enclave 2017 4-door SUV Trim Shown: 2017 Leather 4-door SUV AWD Automatic

After almost a decade on the market, the large Enclave is set to be replaced by an all-new version. The outgoing model has a firm, comfortable ride and secure handling. The cabin is quiet, the interior is nicely finished, and the seats are comfortable. But the Enclave shows its age through some of the outdated controls and limited feature content. The 3.6-liter V6 engine and six-speed automatic transmission are smooth and unobtrusive, but the engine feels taxed and at times the powertrain has to work hard to move this large SUV. In our tests the Enclave returned a paltry 15 mpg overall. Adults can fit in the roomy third row, a plus. Forward-collision warning and lane-departure warning systems are available.

2008 Redesign Year
Buick Enclave 2016 Trim Shown: 2016 Others

The Buick Enclave is a large, car-based SUV with three rows of seats. It shares a platform with the Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia, and Saturn Outlook. All use GM's contemporary 3.6-liter V6 engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission that is a bit hesitant to downshift. We found the ride comfortable and quiet, and the powertrain smooth. Handling is secure and pretty agile for such a big vehicle. The third-row seat is roomy enough for adults. Fit and finish are excellent. Fuel economy was slightly worse in the heavier Enclave than in our tested Traverse. A revised version with an improved infotainment system and the industry's first center airbag between the front seats debuted for 2013.
