2019 Buick Enclave
Ratings & Reliability
The large, three-row Buick Enclave is a quiet, comfortable, and responsive three-row SUV. Power comes from a lively 3.6-liter V6 teamed with a smooth nine-speed automatic. We got 18 mpg overall in our tests. Towing capacity is 5,000 pounds. The roomy cabin is very quiet, and the ride is comfortable, befitting a Buick flagship. The third-row seat is relatively roomy for the class. The infotainment system is easy to use, and connectivity features abound. But the unintuitive gear selector is fussy and a nuisance to use in parking maneuvers. The manual sunshade for the sunroof and two-way-only lumbar adjustment for the seat are out of place, given the Buick's price. City-speed automatic emergency braking and forward collision warning are standard, though only on top versions costing more than $50,000.
