2021 Buick Enclave


For the family in the market for a mid-size SUV, the 2021 Buick Enclave makes a great vehicle choice, especially with its top-selling points like third-row seating, performance, and luxurious features. Prospective buyers can choose from four trim options: Preferred, Essence, Premium, and Avenir, with the Avenir as the top-tier trim with plenty of options and features. Buick offers seven-passenger seating in the Enclave, and given the fact the Enclave is the most significant offering in Buick’s SUV lineup, there is plenty of storage and legroom. For the prospective buyer considering the 2021 Buick Enclave, the Enclave starts at $41,195 (plus destination fee) for the base trim and $54,995 (plus destination fee) for the top Avenir trim.

Performance and Specifications

The 2021 Buick Enclave is equipped with a 3.6 L V6 engine capable of 310hp and 266 lb-ft of torque. Paired with a smooth nine-speed automatic transmission, drivers will experience premium performance and enhanced driving dynamics. According to Buick, the Enclave can tow up to 5,000 lbs, making this mid-size SUV very versatile when it comes to hauling cargo. Potential buyers also have the option of either a 2WD or 4WD configuration, with the latter being the one that offers the most capability in off-road environments. Buick also took the extra step in optimizing the Enclave’s handling quality by providing a premium ride suspension that comes as standard on all trim levels that’ll impress drivers.

Exterior Styling

Buick took a no-compromise approach when designing the Enclave with a style that inspires confidence, and that is bold. Boomerang-style LED headlights, coupled with a prominent Buick-signature grille, heated side mirrors, and 18-inch wheels, make the Enclave a worthy choice in the mid-size SUV segment. Bland styling is out of the question for the Buick Enclave due to its refined body contours and sleek body lines that will attract the buyer in the market for an American SUV. On the higher trims like the Avenir, a power moonroof is optional, along with 20-inch aluminum wheels and assist steps.

Inside the Cabin

There is room for the entire family and plenty of comfort features such as heated, power-adjustable seats with perforated leather. Drivers will be rewarded with crucial standard features like tri-zone climate control and high-quality air filtration that filter all air in the cabin for a clean and refreshing experience. We can say goodbye to road noise because Buick’s Active Noise Cancellation and QuietTuning Technology effectively keep the interior cabin serene and tranquil. The Buick Enclave interior space can be increased by folding the second and third rows to make ample room for large cargo and luggage for any trip. Buick reports a total maximum cargo space of 97.6 cubic feet which is very impressive.

Safety and Infotainment

Buick has included an HD rearview camera, rear park assist, electronic stability, and traction control as standard equipment on all trim levels so drivers can be confident their Enclave will provide them with an added sense of safety and awareness of the road. Buyers can expect an 8-inch touch-screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth connectivity, wifi, and GPS navigation. In case the kids get bored on their road trip, there is an optional add-on where prospective buyers can add two different touch screen displays in the second row behind the driver and front passenger seats to listen to music and for the use of other media functions. For drivers who consider safety as a top priority, there are a total of seven airbags on the Buick Enclave, automatic emergency braking, lane change alert, and blind-spot monitoring. 

Fuel Economy

According to the EPA, the 2021 Buick Enclave is rated at 18 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway with a combined 21 mpg of mixed driving. Fuel tank capacity ranges from 19 to 22 gallons depending on the trim level, but drivers can expect a fuel range between 400 to 460 miles which is an ample range for medium to long-range trips between cities or across the country.
