The good things we might say about the 2019 Buick Enclave would not fit in a single web article. It's that good. The Enclave is a little pricier than some sport utility vehicles, but the upshot is quality. Everywhere you look, the Enclave is doing something right. In this article, we lay it all out for you: the good, the better, the best.
What do you hope for in a cabin? Spacious and comfortable seating? A quiet ride? Plenty of small-item storage? A great look? The 2019 Enclave has all of that. Many compare the Enclave to luxury brands, and with one look you can see why. The Enclave's design is all flowing lines and beautifully sculpted surfaces. Dark faux wood and faux metal plastic trim is positively eye candy. Plenty of soft-touch surfaces complete the sensory experience.
There's seating for seven on three rows. The second row comes in captain's chairs while the third row is a seat bench. Thanks to a very large cabin, every row of seating, including the third row, offers plenty of legroom. An adult can sit comfortably anywhere in the Enclave.
Storage Space for Days
The Enclave is a hoarder's dream. There's 23.6 cubic feet of cargo space behind the third row, 58 cubic feet with that row down, and a maximum of 97.6 cubes. The standard hands-free power liftgate opens as you approach the vehicle and is a godsend when your hands are full.
Can All This Be Standard?
You'll be surprised what you get standard on the Buick because these features are usually optional and top-tier quality on other SUVs. We're talking heated front seats, tri-zone automatic climate control, active noise cancellation, and the aforementioned hands-free power liftgate. Its infotainment system comes with tons of goodies, like 8-inch touch-screen display, Sirius XM satellite radio, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, six USB ports, and an OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hot spot, rearview camera and rear parking sensors. The only pressing reason to step up through the trims is to get all-wheel drive, which is not available at the base trim level.
Smooth as Silk Ride
There's only one engine option on the 2019 Buick Enclave, but it's a great one. We're referring to the 3.6-liter V6 good for 310 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. With that powering the Enclave, you can expect a powerful yet silky smooth ride. There's a slight preference here for a refined ride over thrills, but the Enclave still offers solid, strong acceleration. You can climb from zero to 60 in just 7 seconds. Where the Enclave absolutely excels is in its responsive steering, decisive brakes, and agile body movements. You'll detect very minimal body roll, an impressive feat for a vehicle this size.
We could go on about why the 2019 Buick Enclave is amazing beyond the plentiful standard features and storage space, better performance, and nicer cabin than its rivals. Consider this just a taste of all the refinement and quality you get riding in an Enclave.
