2013 Buick Enclave Luxury Crossover SUV Test Drive & Walkaround Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/buick/enclave/2013/ Autobytel recently met with
Nick Richards Product Communications Manager for Buick. Nick gave us a
wonderful walkaround review of the new 2013 Buick Enclave luxury crossover
SUV. This vehicle has been dramatically redesigned for the 2013 model year
starting from the front end and working all to the way to the back as well
as both inside and out. What's even better is that the 2013 Buick Enclave
starts out with an affordable base price of $38,445.
The front end design is now much more dramatic and pronounced look that
makes the 2013 Buick Enclave look aggressive. The new grille and LED
headlights are the first thing people notice when driving down the road.
The standard wheels are 18-inch aluminum pieces but you can upgrade to
larger 20-inch chrome rims. Along the sides are chrome accents to give the
Enclave a sleeker presence. The rear has been totally redesigned featuring
a dual Exhaust that has been
integrated into the lower bumper diffuser. The LED taillights give this
vehicle a dramatic look at night.
The engine is a 3.6 liter direct injection V-6 that makes 288 horsepower and 270 lb-ft. of
torque. The transmission is a 6-speed automatic which helps the 2013 Buick
Enclave manage 17 MPG in the city and 24 MPG on the highway.
Buick basically redesigned the entire driver's cockpit on the inside of the
Enclave for 2013. The premium materials feature live stitching, contrasting
materials, high end wood accents, a new center stack with capacitive touch
controls, and accent lighting. One great thing about the Buick Enclave is
that it is designed to carry people and families. This large crossover SUV
can seat up to 8 passengers but you can also opt for Captain's Chairs in
the second row.
The 2013 Buick Enclave is a great buy compared to other large crossover
SUVs for a couple of reasons. First, the Enclave price point is lower than
most the competition. Second, the Enclave is a great looking car with many
new enhancements for the 2013 model year. Third, the interior is segment
leading thanks to the nice choice of materials. The Enclave has proven to
be a good vehicle for the past 5 years and now with this new refresh ups
the ante even more.

What I have to say about the 2013 Enclave: : The Enclave has been heavily
refreshed for 2013 and by the looks of it, it looks pretty good. One
features that's notable is the airbag that's right next to the center
console which is a first for cars. Build and material quality is also up
for 2013, with nice soft touch materials and stitching, The Enclave is now
more muscular also in the front and rear. All in all great car from Buick

2013 Buick Enclave
If you covet both the family friendliness of a minivan and the luxury of an
SUV, Cars.com reviewer Joe Bruzek says the closest you'll come in a
crossover may be the 2013 Buick Enclave. Redesigned for the first time
since its brand-jump-starting intro in 2007, the new Enclave boasts updated
front-end styling and upgraded interior materials, as well as improved ride
and acceleration thanks to suspension and transmission tweaks. Still, stiff
brakes make quick stops a chore and a cocoa-colored interior undermines the
luxury feel of the classy stitching and ambient blue lighting.
