The Buick Enclave is a mid/full-size three-row crossover SUV introduced in 2007 for the 2008 model year. The GM Lambda platform is shared by the Enclave, the Saturn Outlook, the GMC Acadia, and the Chevrolet Traverse. The Enclave occupies a middle ground between high-end and entry-level luxury. Buick also manufactures exceptional reliability ratings across its lineup, which works to increase consumer confidence when choosing the Buick brand. The Buick Enclave excels in this mid-market by offering standard features typically only found in luxury vehicles while delivering Buick brand value to consumers.
The Enclave includes safety features such as Buick’s patented rear obstacle detection, and Buick’s safety alert seat. The Enclave is an important model for Buick because it helps to attract younger customers into Buick showrooms while increasing sales of the brand among new car buyers.
