The Buick Enclave will once again grace our dealerships sometime in mid-2017 probably as 2018 Buick Enclave. This information is however regarded a secret by Buick for now. What we do know is the new Enclave will feature several redesigns regardless of whether it will be offered as a 2017 or 2018 year model. Highlights to expect from the expected model include a smooth and quiet ride quality, top safety scores, an eight-passenger seating capacity, a generous cargo capacity, and a luxurious cabin. As mentioned above, its release date should be expected probably in mid-2017.
The Buick Enclave 2017 is a large SUV that offers a seating capacity for up to eight occupants. Besides the copious accommodation, it also comes with a generous cargo space, and numerous standard features for the money. And guess what, you get all of that without forking out a premium price.
Families looking for factors such as fuel economy, top safety scores, versatility, and technologies have tons of SUVs to comb through. However, finding a crossover SUV that offers all of the above for a bargain price is a rarity. The 2017 Buick Enclave is perhaps one among a handful of such vehicles that can offer everything you’d want in a large three-row crossover without making you break the bank or dip into your children’s college fund.
The Buick Enclave 2017, although mechanically similar to Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia 2017, is its own man when it comes to ride serenity, and dignified styling. It pours itself to the road effortlessly soaking up bumps and mundane road conditions to offer an impressive ride quality akin to that of a proper land yacht.
In stark contrast to most third-row benches that are more often than not cramped, the Enclave takes pride in its spacious third-row bench. Even so, the cargo volume isn’t compromised and offers a reasonable 23.3 cu. ft. of space. Some few idiosyncrasies do exist however despite a seemingly illustrious review. Maneuvering in tight spaces is a hustle considering its massive size. The climate and infotainment controls are rather dated by conventional methods, and the interior quality leaves more to be desired.
Alternatives you can consider include the “A” rated 2017 Toyota Highlander, Acura MDX, Ford Explorer 2017, and the 2017 Dodge Durango. The Toyota Highlander 2017 price starts from around $30,000. Value is offered in terms of interior refinement, a functional cabin design, a smooth and strong V6 engine, whisper-quiet ride quality, and a seating capacity for up to eight people. The 2017 Toyota Highlander release date should be expected sometime before this fall, at least according to recent media reports.
Another solid pick is the 2017 Acura MDX. Specs include a starting price of $43,000, generous standard features, excellent crash-test scores, confident acceleration, adept handling, quiet cabin, and impressive fuel economy. The Acura MDX 2017 release date should be expected this fall.
