2012 Buick Enclave-Classy, Luxurious and Inviting

The 2012 Buick Enclave

The Buick Enclave is a vehicle that doesn’t allow itself to be easily defined. Its body style is like nothing else on the road, but not so different that it puts people off. It looks like and calls itself a SUV, but it also has features like third row seating, a large cargo area and car like driving dynamics that you find in a minivan. Most of all however, the Enclave has a classiness about it that some might see as arrogance.  Say what you may, the Buick Enclave is not just about looks, it is a great vehicle to move around town or the countryside in. First off, the interior of the Enclave is luxurious and inviting with three rows of seats that will allow you to transport the whole basketball team and coaches. The Enclave is powerful with a 3.6-liter V6 engine that pumps out 288 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque, plenty of power for hauling cargo or people or a combination of both.  The 2012 Buick Enclave is a crossover SUV that comes in four different trim levels. All have a standard seven-passenger seating configuration via second-row captain’s chairs and a third-row bench seat. An optional second-row bench seat, available at no extra charge, increases capacity to eight.  The base model of the Enclave is nicely equipped with 19-inch alloy wheels, bi-xenon headlights, fog lamps, a power liftgate, heated outside mirrors, tri-zone automatic climate control and cloth upholstery. Other standard features include partial power front seats, a tilt-and-telescoping leather/wood steering wheel, keyless entry, cruise control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, Bluetooth, OnStar and a six-speaker CD/MP3 audio system with an auxiliary audio jack and satellite radio.  Stepping up to the Convenience Group trim level adds remote starting, rear parking assist and a rearview camera. The Leather Group tacks on leather upholstery, heated power front seats (eight-way driver, four-way passenger) and driver memory settings.  The top-of-the-line Premium Group has the above equipment plus 19-inch chrome wheels, adaptive xenon headlights, heated power-folding outside mirrors with built-in turn signal repeaters, heated and ventilated front seats, a power-adjustable steering column, a 115-volt household-style power outlet and a 10-speaker Bose premium audio system with USB/auxiliary audio input jacks and a pair of rear seat headphone jacks.  Individual options can be selected by trim level and include 20-inch chrome alloy wheels, a dual-pane sunroof, the second-row bench seat and a second-row center console. Electronics upgrades include the 10-speaker Bose surround-sound audio system, a rear-seat entertainment system and a navigation system.  The Premium Edition with all-wheel-drive and carries a base price of $45,080.  Optional Equipment on my tester included: Audio System with Navigation & DVD with Touchscreen Navigation, DVD Rear Seat Entertainment, XM Navigation & Traffic ($3,185). Power Sunroof with 2nd Row Skylight ($1,400). 20″ Chrome Clad Aluminum Wheels ($300). Carbon Black Metallic Trim ($195). Destination Charges $810. Total as tested price of my 2012 Buick Enclave Premium Edition with all-wheel-drive and options $50,970.    Fuel numbers are 16 miles-per-gallon city and 22 miles-per-gallon highway.
