The upcoming 2021 Buick Enclave is a three-row SUV with a room for seven passengers. It is the brand’s largest vehicle at this moment and is known for its very comfortable and quiet cabin. Moreover, the price is reasonable for such a premium SUV, such as Enclave. This model can easily rival luxury competitors such as BMW X5 or Cadillac XT6. For 2021, we don’t expect such major changes. Still, the model looks refreshed without significant upgrades.
The Enclave SUV comes with beautiful styling, and it offers a lot of standard equipment. Its V6 provides more than enough power, and the towing capacity is great as well. We expect from Buick to deliver important technology upgrades and the newest driver-assistance features. The price should remain intact, and the sales will start before the end of the year.
2021 Enclave Facelift
The 2021 Buick Enclave won’t receive major visual changes. This SUV is 204.0 inches long and is larger than competitors like the Acura MDX. We think Enclave SUV looks very handsome and eye-catching. This model comes with beautiful rounded lines, while some other parts are subtle and even sporty. It is a perfect combination provided by Buick.
The front fascia comes with a relatively new grille, and even the Buick logo looks very nice. The Avenir variant will offer grille with a honeycomb-like pattern, and it will also add unique 20-inch rims. Overall, this is one of the finest SUVs you can get at the moment.
The interior of the 2021 Buick Enclave will offer a room for seven persons. The same seating layout is offered by competitors such as Acura MDX and Lincoln Aviator. If you want an eight-seat SUV, Chevy Traverse or Toyota Highlander would be the right choice. As for the Enclave, it is a very modern cabin with a high level of comfort. The second-row seats are two captain’s seats.
Unlike some other three-row crossovers, Enclave offers decent legroom in the back, definitely more than some rivals. Buick offers an eight-inch touchscreen as standard and cloth upholstery in the base trim level. On the other hand, Avenir trim level is equipped with perforated leather, more wood accents, ebony interior color, and unique contrast stitching.
Under the bonnet, the new 2021 Buick Enclave comes with a powerful 3.6-liter V6 engine. This unit is capable of producing 310 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque. It comes with a 9-speed automatic transmission, and both FWD and AWD systems are available. The stop/start system will save a little fuel at idle, and the ride quality is quite exceptional.
Buick says the V6 engine delivers 18 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway. The all-wheel-drive setup will slightly lower those figures. As for the towing capacity, the base model can tow 1,500 pounds, and maximum capacity is rated at 5,000 pounds.
2021 Buick Enclave Price and Release Date
The forthcoming 2021 Buick Enclave will start at $40,000. On the other hand, the range-topping Avenir trim is available for around $56,000. The sales will begin in the coming months, most likely by the end of 2020.
