Along with fresh styling, the Buick Enclave will receive more standard features when the 2013 version arrives this fall. Its suggested retail price of $39,270 is a slight increase from the previous model.
Standard features on the 2013 Buick Enclave include a seven-inch color touch radio plus IntelliLink, parking assist, rear camera, high-density headlamps, remote start, power liftgate, and more. The Enclave will also come with the industry-leading front-center air bag to protect drivers and passengers in far-side impact collisions.
Buick claims that the Enclave is the best-selling luxury SUV with third-row seating. A maximum of eight occupants can be seated in the Enclave for no added costs.
Enclave buyers can choose between different equipment groups for added luxury. The Leather Group swathes the interior in leather upholstery and adds heated front seats and power and memory seat functions. For added safety, sensors monitor the road and alert the driver when a car is in the blind spot or if it is unsafe to reverse out of a parking space. The Enclave with this package is available for $43,285. The Premium Group ($46,450) features all the amenities of the Leather Group plus add-ons such as a Bose premium sound system, cooled front seats, 19-inch chrome wheels, and a power tilting/telescoping column.
The Enclave will likely face intense competition from other large luxury SUVs such as the Infiniti JX35, Lexus RX 350, Acura MDX, and even GM’s own Acadia Denali. However, the Buick Enclave has the advantage of being the most competitively priced model of these five SUVs, and this may allow it to jump ahead in the sales race.
