Buick's 2019 Enclave is a seven-passenger SUV that aims for those family-hauler shoppers with premium taste looking for the lux life. Completely redesigned inside and out, with new tech and safety features, improved cargo space, the Enclave is powered by a 3.6-liter V6 with a 9-speed automatic transmission. But does all that add up to American luxury? Micah Muzio of Kelley Blue Book will let you know at the end of this video.

Again just like Cadillac,buick needs to distance its self from GM, GM cuts too many corners on their premium and luxury branches which is a shame for such a pretty SUV

With the button on each door handle it is only natural to reach the button first before the handle and by the time you pull on the handle the locks are unlocked without delay.

@Norm T Just disconnecting the sensor is much easier than opening and closing the hood every day.
Norm T
Norm T Hace 7 meses
@D. Porter you could pop the hood before starting eveey morning and once started close the hood and it won't interrupt. A $139 plug in module is available which is just a timed relay. We have two cars with stop/start and don't mind it. But my wife doesn't like it the AC stopping on hot days so she cranks it cold and lowers fan speed and it wasn't stop the engine at stops.

What is wrong with this guy? The new Enclave is beautiful, bigger, lighter, faster, better fuel economy and very nice to drive. Besides everything the price is not bad at all if we compare with the other luxury 7 passengers SUVs

2018-19 enclave’s exterior has no personality, no identity. Just a big failure, ever noticed the new enclave’s sale is very disappointing, worse than the previous model? According to Buick, everything inside is improved dramatically; then it is arguably the new exterior styling which hurts the sale. To make Enclave great again, just simply bring back the old styling. I won’t ever buy 18-19 model, instead I’ll buy older model used, just for its exterior styling.

Well the seats in the 2019 Enclave aren’t any different than the ones in our 2016 Enclave, very uncomfortable, very hard and stiff, no cushion in them, like sitting on boards wrapped in leather…..My Ford F150 has nicer more comfortable seats , more cushion too. Try finding some seats that were in the 2008 Buick Lucerne, then you’ll have nice interior.
Norm T
Norm T Hace 7 meses
Our Encore seats were OK. The Verano was the best of them all and better than my Saab's. Envision was OK for leather seats but small. The cloth seats in our Regal TourX are really good. I didn't like the leather seats in the TourX.

Another overpriced gas hog SUV. Of course there are dumbasses out there who will drop big money on one. But hey, there are enough fools who will spend about $100,000 an an Escalade.
D. Porter
D. Porter Hace un año
Idiotic statement. If you need to transport 6-7 people and their gear, and tow something more than a few hundred pounds, you have to get a vehicle capable of doing so, and that generally means getting an SUV, which, according to the laws of physics, requires the vehicle to be larger, weigh more, cost more, and have a more powerful engine which uses more fuel. A Boeing 767 is much larger and uses way more fuel than a Cessna 172, but everyone understands, except for morons like you, that things are designed differently depending on their intended use.

I have a 2013 Enclave and it still looks and drives like new today. The CVT has plenty of pickup and passing power. Also, the suspension is buttery soft and it had the best seats I’ve ever rode on in an automobile. If the prior generation is any indication, the new Enclave is worth the money.

The point is that it has 3 usable rows of seating and still has the most cargo space behind the 3rd row of any CUV. Unfortunately every other competitor is smaller, has less leg room, and has less cargo space, so for a family the Enclave is the only option since the Traverse doesn't include many of the Enclave's amenities and options.

The 2017 Acadia is much smaller than Traverse and Enclave. We have a 2017 Acadia Limited the last of the big ones and it rises ok but the 2017 Enclave was much quieter and smoother in too trims.
