The 2017 Buick Enclave is a three-row crossover that strikes a balance between the high-volume mainstream choices and those from the most premium brands. That, along with its curvy exterior and confident road manners, makes the Enclave perfect for families that need both a little extra room and a little extra luxury.
The 2017 Enclave carries over basically unchanged from the 2016 model year, and is offered in Convenience, Leather and Premium trims. Buick did put together a new Sport Touring Edition package for the vehicle. It provides Satin Black Ice accents for the grille and 20-inch chrome-clad wheels, and can be matched with one of three premium exterior finishes: Crimson Red Metallic, Ebony Twilight Metallic or White Frost Tricoat.
A Tuscan Edition package that was introduced on the 2016 model also returns for 2017. All Enclave models come with a V6 engine. Front-wheel drive is standard as well, with all-wheel drive available in the upper two grades.
While many larger crossovers and SUVs have angular shapes and upright grilles, the 2017 Enclave looks surprisingly slippery. On the side, character lines up above the wheels reinforce the curves of the wheel wells, and Buick’s hallmark “waterfall” grille design seems to flow right off the broad hood. The brand also provides a distinct front light signature with standard LED accent lights for the Enclave’s high-intensity discharge xenon projector headlamps.
Standard for the Enclave Premium are articulating headlights, which swivel in sync with the steering wheel for improved illumination in turns. Top options include a dual-pane moonroof with a power-opening front pane, along with power-folding capability for the standard power-adjustable and heated exterior mirrors. The base model comes with 19-inch wheels, while three 20-inch designs are available.
A key reason for buying a three-row vehicle is that final set of seats, and the Enclave emphasizes this with relatively generous accommodations throughout the cabin. As a comparison, it has an extra 1.3 inches of third-row headroom and 2.4 more inches of third-row legroom than an Infiniti QX60. The standard cabin layout seats seven with second-row bucket seats, and a middle-row bench is optional on upper trims for eight-passenger seating.
The driver enjoys a seat with standard eight-way power adjustability, with first-row heating and cooling functions available. Also available is an especially stylish Ebony and Dark Plum cabin theme with perforated-leather seating surfaces. Or owners can fold down the second and third rows for 115.2 cubic feet of cargo space. Buick’s significant efforts to reduce unwanted road noise pay off in any configuration.
Though the Enclave is a big vehicle, ride and handling are impressive for the segment, helped in part by dual-flow suspension dampers. Motivation comes from a 3.6-liter V6 engine that makes 288 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque, and that’s enough output so that owners can tow up to 4,500 pounds when the Enclave is properly equipped. A six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive are standard for the Enclave lineup, and enable EPA ratings of 15/22 mpg city/highway. All-wheel drive Enclave models are also rated at 15/22 mpg.
The Enclave has a strong tech advantage in its standard mobile Wi-Fi hot spot with 4G LTE connectivity. A three-month/three-gigabyte data trial is complimentary for that system, which accompanies an also-standard Buick IntelliLink infotainment system. Here, a 6.5-inch touch screen, Bluetooth and voice recognition are notable features.
Adding the navigation-enabled system (standard on the Premium grade) also brings in a 10-speaker Bose audio system, while a rear-seat entertainment package, with a flip-down ceiling-mounted screen, is optional for Leather and Premium trims. Safety technology highlights include a standard rearview camera and available features that include forward collision alert, lane departure warning, rear parking sensors and blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.
