The 2019 Buick Enclave stands in a unique position among three-row SUVs in its class. This is more luxurious than competitors such as the Ford Explorer and Honda Pilot, but neither the price nor the status of approaching the luxury models like the Infiniti QX60 or Audi Q7. With Enclave, buyers will find a smooth ride, spacious cabin, feature-rich interior and powerful engine combined with good handling, and the latest in high-tech and driver-assist systems. So, if you are looking for a three-row SUV that offers stylish tastes, luxurious and modern interiors with driving and handling of midsize sedans, the 2019 Buick Enclave checks all the boxes.
The 2019 Buick Enclave available in four trim levels: Preferred, Essence, Premium and Avenir. Notable standard equipment includes a rearview camera, hands-free power-programmable rear liftgate, keyless entry and push-button start, universal home remote, tri-zone automatic climate control, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot and six USB ports. Standard safety equipment includes seven airbags, rear-park assist, Teen Driver tracking and rear-seat reminder. The top of line up Avenir will get you 20-inch wheels, 360-surround-view camera, heated steering wheel, heated/ventilated front seats, leather upholstery, heated 2nd-row seats, a dual moonroof and a rearview mirror used as a conventional unit or a camera.
Under the hood, the 2019 Buick Enclave comes standard with a direct-injection 3.6-liter V6 engine good for 310 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque. It paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. To improve fuel economy, the Enclave is equipped with seamless stop/start technology that cuts engine power at idle. Towing capacity up to 1,500 pounds, but the optional trailer-towing package that includes additional cooling and other tweaks increase tow rating up to 5,000 pounds.
