Buick's Enclave melds elegant interior and exterior design with a confident ride - all experienced in a quiet, well-crafted cabin capable of carrying up to eight occupants.

Offered in CX and CXL models, this crossover is designed to impress. If there is a "tipping point" at Buick, the all-new Enclave will be leading the way in the nameplate's renewed popularity. Built on an all-new crossover architecture in a brand-new manufacturing facility, the Buick Enclave is powered by a sophisticated 3.6L V-6 engine with variable valve timing (VVT). Available in front- and all-wheel drive variants, the engine is bolted to the advanced Hydra-Matic 6T75 electronic six-speed automatic transmission.

At speed, the Enclave is comfortable, luxurious, impressively nimble, responsive and whisper quiet. Billed by the automaker as the quietest crossover in its segment, the Enclave employs unique QuietTuning technology, which reduces unwanted noise from entering Enclave's cabin.

Like its exterior design, the Enclave interior exudes style and refinement. Complementing curves and warm, inviting colors are integrated with premium, soft-touch, low-gloss materials. The instrument panel and other interior elements have received precise attention to fit, finish and flushness throughout.

Enclave can be configured for seven or eight passengers, including two front bucket seats, a 60/40 split second-row bench (three passengers) or two second-row captain's chairs (two passengers) and a 60/40 split third row bench seat (three passengers).

Safety features abound in the Enclave: Dual front airbags, head curtain airbags, four-wheel disc brakes with anti-lock, traction control, StabiliTrak vehicle stability control, OnStar communications service, automatic power door locks, engine immobilizer, remote keyless entry, full-size spare tire and tire pressure monitor.

Optional safety features include adaptive headlamps, navigation system, remote engine start, rear parking sensors and rearview monitor.
