Buick Enclave – An Awesome Choice for Families

First Look:

It’s been four years of stay in market without a change for Buick’s full-size 3-row crossover Enclave, and despite this the crossover still remains a superb alternative in this really competitive segment. The 2011 Buick Enclave that we are seeing here is pretty much the same vehicle that we saw last year, and we are pretty much happy with it, considering the fact that Buick has not tried to incorporate something, that will ruin the appeal of the vehicle. The Buick Enclave might be sharing its “Lambda” platform with two other GM siblings in the form of GMC Acadia and Chevrolet Traverse, but the crossover still has its own identity. That is to say, the vehicle is known for offering a luxurious, stylish and fashionable take on the family-centered crossover.

Some of the strengths for Buick Enclave include the powerful V6 engine, huge cargo capacity, impressive crash-test scores and a quiet and comfortable ride. Customers have an option to pick between a 7- or 8-passenger models having impressively appointed cabin. The 7 passenger variant comes with a couple of captain’s chairs in its second row while the 8 passenger variant comes with a 3 passenger bench. All these luxuries and features are nicely equipped within the striking, curvy sheet metal of 2011 Buick Enclave.
