As #Buick continues to try and reinvent their image here in America, buyers can really find themselves somewhat confused if they visit a Buick showroom. On one of the spectrum, you've got a pretty nice sport sedan in the form of the Regal GS, while at the other end, their best-selling model, the #BuickEnclave is every bit a modern interpretation of what you'd expect from Buick. Its cushy ride, relaxed steering, quiet cabin, and bloated proportions make the 2019 #EnclaveAvenir feel like the modern day Buick Roadmaster driven by a much older generation. It loses ground to new entries from Kia, Volkswagen, and Subaru in the luxury department, and its shocking as tested price near $60,000 will make you question its value when modern driver aids are still optional, even on this pricey #Avenir trim level.

Happy Friday everyone! Just wanted to make a slight correction, the Enclave does in fact have LED rear turn signals, which you can see in the video. As nice as this car is, we struggle to find a reason why you'd choose this over the Telluride, Atlas, or upcoming Hyundai Palisade. Even the Chevy Traverse makes more sense, mostly because of the price tag that Buick is asking for this car. It is about $10,000 more expensive than a fully loaded Telluride, Atlas, Ascent, Pilot, Traverse, etc but to us, it didn't really feel like it. We also disliked how even our top trim Enclave Avenir was missing adaptive cruise control and at $57,000, it should be standard. Still a great choice in the segment if you like the design and want something bigger, but we question the value here with so many options to choose from now! Thanks for watching everyone and enjoy your weekend!

Would you do the Toyota highland der 2020, vs the buick 2020 avenier. These I think the two best looking 7 passengers cars. The 2020 avenier is different from other aveniers. It looks like the cockpit of a plane, it is high bucketed.....very cool. I own a 2014 enclave and the 2020 I am looking at for its been a really great car. DrW

@Jamie So true. Enclave is really in a different class (Near Luxury). The smooth ride and quiet cabin define luxury. Unfortunately many people especially many in younger generation have never experienced the way cars drove in the 70's & 80's. All they know is what the so called "Professional Reviewers" have told them . Over the last two decades these so called pro reviewers have pushed high dollar European cars the can handle a corner at 70 - 80 mph. That's great if you drive on the autobahn but I don't. Those European cars can handle the corners but can't handle a tiny pothole very well without jarring your bones. The fact is most reviewers don't understand the difference between "Sport" & "Luxury" categories. Fortunately, Redline and Alex and a few others are starting to get the message out. Buick has always been a leader in defining luxury.

I just bought my 2020 Avenir and it has adaptive cruise control , massage seats and I got for only 47,000 with rebates way better than palisade and telluride
CheAmoGuidare Hace 4 meses
Sofyan gave his usual good review but I didn't watch this past the nine-minute mark. Why? 1. No massaging seats in what Buick touts as their finest trim, though the much-cheaper Regal GS has it. 2. No standard adaptive cruise control in (again) supposedly Buick's very-best trim. Are you serious? This thing is nearly $60K! 3. Bland generic cheap-looking instrumentation shared with other GM vehicles. 4. It takes a special kind of incompetence to design an ugly steering wheel. 5. And last but not least, "We're putting our good infotainment graphics only in Cadillacs." GM, this is why you are now a joke in the car industry.

These will be a great deal on the used market as GM's lose about 50% in 3-4 years. This SUV is large, comfortable, quiet, and takes regular gas,( something that no reviewer ever mentions). I'll be buying a 2019 in 3 years.

Dear Friends!!!!! This is a very important message. Anyone who buys a new car from GENERAL Motors the chance you threw your money into the trash is very large. In this company there is no customer service, the company's management does not care at all, if you have a problem or a malfunction, you can only pray to God there is a chance that the help will come faster. GM is a very dangerous company, be careful and keep your money safe.!!!👎👎👎👎👎😬👎😬👎👎

Norm T: You rely on the WP for info, 🤣😂🤣😂 the bailout out was BAD for this country...Period! How many smaller businesses were left to die, while the Unions (DemocRATS) with GM & Chrysler were supported by the TAXPAYER! You and yours bail out bd business practices next time, but that’s NOT what a “Free Market” dictates. A business makes bad decisions, they go out of business. Simple as that! “However, debate over the necessity of the bailout, the precedent it set, and its economic consequences because the counterfactual is difficult to assess. Policy experts and economists have not reached any sort of consensus regarding what would have happened to Chrysler, GM, or the auto industry in the absence of the bailout.” publicpolicy.wharton.upenn.edu/live/news/1779-a-reflection-on-the-2009-american-auto-bailout

@John T "...Before the big balance-sheet expansion, the Fed had been turning over about $30 billion of profit a year to Treasury. But in the past six years, it has turned over a total of about $474 billion, according to Stone & McCarthy Research, a well-regarded Fed-watching firm based in Princeton, N.J. The difference between that total and the $30 billion-a-year regular number is $294 billion. Throw that into the mix and you are up to $347.5 billion. Which is close enough to $350 billion for me - especially since the Fed, Fannie and Freddie are still sending profits to Treasury. I’m leaving out some relatively minor bailout items - such as guarantee fees that Treasury and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. got for backstopping various investments, and the cost of providing special income-tax deals to companies such as General Motors that became majority-owned by the government as part of the bailout. Those items more or less net out against each other. Please understand that I’m not saying the bailout was wonderful or perfect, or that I like the fact that prudent savers are still earning essentially nothing on their money, thanks to the Fed’s near-zero interest-rate policies. What I’m trying to do is to give you real numbers about how the U.S. taxpayers have done, as opposed to the numbers that you probably have seen or probably believe..." www.washingtonpost.com/business/economy/bailout-highly-profitable-for-taxpayers-when-you-look-at-the-right-numbers/2015/01/01/dc2a05a6-8fa5-11e4-a412-4b735edc7175_story.html?noredirect=on

Norm T
Norm T Hace 10 meses
@John T The actual taxpayer profit on the bailout is about $350 billion, by my math. That’s right, $350 billion. All in cash, most of which has held down the federal budget deficit over the past six years. That’s serious money, even by today’s standards. Washington Post Look at quarterly surveying by Truedelta and you'll see 2018 Equinox at a very low repair rate of 12 repairs per 100 while the RAV4 has 14/100 and Honda CR-V at whopping 33/100. So it has been very relibale and far from junk as it was near the top in sales last year.

@kao the numberblocks fan 2019 the Envlave offers GM's Twin Clutch AWD with torque vectoring. It is actually better than SH-AWD in that it can send 100% to a single wheel while the other three slip and it is more efficient. See the MDX that had to be pushed off the rollers in a one wheel on the ground test. www.extremetech.com/extreme/244191-buick-joins-torque-vectoring-goes-snow-wheel-drive-show

@Norm T I agreed that the MDX needs a new design(which is coming) but I disagree that the Buick is a better SUV. The active SH system alone beats out Buicks sluggish handling.

Tested out an Ascent, Pilot, Telluride, Atlas and Acadia before settling on the Enclave. To us the interior felt bigger than the Atlas without the lumbering feel the Atlas had. We ended up with an Avenir with the tech package and towing package for just under 49k. The price discussion is severely misleading as I tracked these for 4 months while never seeing one top out at over 51k. The point being, a fully loaded Telluride was within 3000 of this car, and it provided significantly less cargo space. The Atlas has questionable fuel economy, with some test putting its average between 17-18. The Pilot simply felt bland, the Subaru was nice, but it didn’t feel spectacular in any way. Bottom line is all of these vehicles sit in the mid to high 40s for the very top trim. And Buick is no different if you actually research the prices within the segment.
