In a world of SUVs, there are many choices to suit various lifestyles and needs. In their infancy, they catered more toward the outdoorsy person who emphasized the "sport" part of the acronym as they packed up their camping gear or hooked up the boat or trailer. Since then, SUVs have become a sizable segment of the American auto market, and automakers have responded by making them with an equal mix of utility and luxury. This is especially true for Buick SUVs, which provide bold designs, unmatched luxury, and an aura of sophistication unequaled in competing brands.
Offering room for up to seven passengers, Buick SUVs are well known to buyers who are seeking reliability, comfort, and luxury, as well as advanced safety features to keep both you and your passengers out of danger. Built upon a solid design and engineering foundation by the oldest automobile manufacturer in the country, Buick SUVs offer plenty of options for drivers who are looking for utility without the bulk, all the way up to vehicles that can haul a whole family and all of their gear.
Buick has been a trusted brand for generations with a longstanding reputation for quality and reliability. It is one of the oldest automotive brands in the world and the oldest in America. Positioned between the mainstream and more high-end luxury brands, drivers can expect Buick models to be upscale and well-refined without being unaffordable, with exceptional craftsmanship inside and out. This not only applies to its older sedans but to its complete selection of modern SUVs as well.
Founded by David Dunbar Buick in 1899 as the Buick Auto-Vim and Power Company, Buick has been around nearly as long as there have been automobiles on the road. Right from the beginning, the company has been ahead of the pack for innovation in automotive design and technology, having received a patent in 1903 for the world's first production overhead valve engine. By the late 1930s, Buicks became so popular that even King Edward VIII of the British royal family was driving one.
In all the years that Buick has been making automobiles, styles have changed drastically, but Buick vehicles still have some lasting design features from their early days, which still carry over to the modern era. For example, the iconic Buick tri-shield logo is based on original founder David Dunbar Buick's ancestral coat of arms, and the wide taillights have been a design trademark since the 1960s. In addition, a long curved trim line that runs almost the entire length of the vehicle, known as the sweep spear, was first introduced in 1949. No matter how one looks at a Buick, there's no mistaking its unique and sophisticated style.
The 2023 Buick Enclave is a stylish SUV with seating for up to seven. It is available in three trims: Essence, Premium, and Avenir, which are each available with front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. Thanks to a fuel economy of 18 MPG in the city and 26 MPG on the highway, this versatile vehicle can get you around urban areas or across long stretches of highway without having to pull over often for gas.
The driver and front seat passenger can enjoy available massage seats. Backseat passengers will be comfortable, too, thanks to a SmartSlide seat that comes standard in the second row of this vehicle, making it easy for passengers to get to the back row. Additionally, there is an available power-folding third-row seat for times you need to create extra storage space in the back. And when the back seats are folded down, you’ll enjoy a maximum of 97.4 cubic feet of cargo space.
A standard hands-free power-programmable liftgate automatically opens when you approach the vehicle while holding your compatible device, leaving your hands available to unload groceries and handle other tasks. It’s rich with infotainment and connectivity features, including an eight-inch-diagonal color touchscreen, along with a navigation system that comes standard on Premium and Avenir models and is optional on the Essence trim. Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility let you access your smartphone’s apps all on the touch screen, and an available Wi-Fi hotspot makes it easy to stay connected while on the road.
The 2023 Buick Enclave also comes with a suite of driver-assist features to reduce the chances of incidents on the road. These features include a standard front camera, rear camera, and an available HD surround vision, along with rear pedestrian alerts. Each of these features acts as extra eyes and ears when you can’t see everything that’s happening around your car.
The 2023 Buick Encore GX is a luxury subcompact SUV that comes in at an affordable price point. It has seating for up to five passengers and a maximum cargo space of 50.2 cubic feet when the rear seats are folded. With an impressive 29 MPG in the city and 32 MPG on the highway, it’s a great car for road trips and city driving.
It has several available advanced driver assist features like Adaptive Cruise Control to help you keep a safe distance between yourself and the other cars, an High Definition Surround Vision, and Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning. It also has an available Rear Cross Traffic Alert system and Automatic Emergency Braking. Should anything happen on the road, the available OnStar system can ensure help arrives swiftly.
Luxury can be seen and felt throughout the vehicle through features like a heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel that will keep your hands cozy and comfortable and the dual-zone climate control that lets the driver and front-seat passenger select their desired temperatures. Plus, the car boasts Buick’s QuietTuning technologies, which block out outside noise, making for a peaceful cabin.
Thanks to available intelligent all-wheel drive and StabiliTrak, this car is also ready for nearly any road conditions and will prevent a loss of control on slippery or uneven surfaces. It also enjoys an available panoramic roof, allowing passengers to take in the scenery. And standard LED headlamps ensure you, as the driver, always see what’s on the road ahead, even in low light conditions. So while this car might look sophisticated and cosmopolitan, it’s also ready for your outdoor adventures.
The 2023 Buick Envision is another sporty compact SUV from Buick that can hold five people and is great for both city and freeway driving. Like the Encore, it will have an Avenir and Essence trim. There will also be a Preferred trim. The Preferred and Essence trims will be available with a Sport Touring Edition.
Plenty of advanced infotainment and connectivity features come standard, like Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility and a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot. Data is available for purchase, so staying connected, streaming podcasts and music, and more is easy on the road in this vehicle. And for those who regularly explore new territory, you’ll enjoy the navigation system that comes standard on the Avenir trim, which is also available on the Essence trim. All of these features can be accessed and controlled on the gorgeous large touchscreens––the Preferred has an eight-inch touchscreen, and the Essence and Avenir get a 10.2-inch system.
The Envision will also have an array of driver assist features such as Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Automatic Emergency Braking, Forward Collision Alert, and Adaptive Cruise Control. It will also have an HD Rear Vision Camera and available HD Surround Vision to help you see what’s happening around and behind your vehicle without turning your neck. The Following Distance Indicator will also help you keep a safe distance between yourself and other cars on the road, and the IntelliBeam auto high beam system will turn your high beams on in low light settings and off when other vehicles approach.
Some luxury features to anticipate include heated front seats and a heated steering wheel––these are standard on the Essence and Avenir trims and available on the Preferred. The Essence and Avenir also have a standard hands-free programmable liftgate that automatically opens the trunk as you approach the vehicle with your compatible device. Drivers of the 2023 Buick Envision will get a maximum of 52.7 cubic feet of cargo space when the rear seat is folded, so it can hold plenty of luggage when you’re taking a two-person road trip.
The smallest entry into Buick's extended lineup of SUVs is the Encore. The Encore provides the handling of a sedan with the safety of an SUV. This five-seat crossover provides several improvements over a smaller sedan, including cargo space of 48.4 cubic feet and a stylish, comfortable ride. It also has a low starting price with a fuel economy of 25 MPG in the city and 30 MPG on the highway. With plenty of trim options to choose from, this might be the smallest of the SUVs available through Buick, but there are enough options to fully make it your own. Plus, with two upgraded trim packages coming later in the spring, you'll see there is even more to love with the Buick Encore than ever before.
The Regal TourX is part SUV and part station wagon. It has a longer body with additional storage in the rear to help maximize your cargo space. In fact, at 73.5 cubic feet of cargo space, the Regal TourX has more available cargo space than many SUVs. This is the vehicle to go with if you want the full storage capacity of a larger SUV, but you like to sit lower to the ground and have a profile that is similar to that of a traditional sedan. It's truly the best of both worlds. It also comes in all-wheel drive to improve your handling on slippery roads and dirt, all while still giving you a solid 29 MPG on the highway. Add in a large number of trim options, and this vehicle is designed to be the perfect family car. When you can't decide between a car or an SUV, this is the exact vehicle you need to test drive and call your own.
If you want something that has a bit more size than the Encore but like the look of the crossover, the 2020 Envision may just be the perfect SUV for you. This five-seat crossover has a max cargo space of 57.3 cubic feet and offers a bit more legroom and headroom for passengers than the smaller Encore. And despite the increased size, this SUV is still able to help save you money at the pump with its 29 MPG on the highway. As the perfect bridge between the small SUVs and the world of full-size SUVs, the Envision has several trims and packages, allowing you to find the vehicle best suited for your needs.
When you want an SUV for the entire family, and you don't want to compromise, the 2020 Enclave is the model to consider. With the ability to seat up to seven passengers and tow up to 5,000 pounds, this SUV is built to handle everything you might throw at it and more. Despite the larger design, the Encore is still able to hit 26 MPG on the highway. With the standard 3.6L V6 engine that produces 310 horsepower, you'll have the kind of power you need to navigate Atlanta traffic, all while remaining museum-quiet on the interior, thanks to Buick's QuietTuning technology. With several design features you won't find on other Buicks, this larger SUV is the king of Buick luxury and the ultimate SUV when you want style and sophistication in your daily drive.
If you like the Enclave but would like to add some additional touches of sophistication and elegance, the Enclave Avenir allows you to do just that. With the Avenir trim, your Enclave receives all the available upgrades, plus an exclusive grille, 20-inch aluminum wheels featuring a pearl nickel finish, not to mention three rows of some of the most beautifully appointed leather seats you've ever seen. You have the choice between chestnut or ebony interiors. These added luxury touches help take your beautiful ride to another level. Plus, small features like wireless smartphone charging, upgraded suspension for a smoother ride, and industry-leading safety features give you the best ride possible. The Enclave Avenir takes the luxury you expect from a Buick and amplifies it in every way.
In the spring of 2020, we were introduced to the first-ever Encore GX. Despite the similar name, the Encore GX is an all-new model that is a bit larger than the Encore. It takes the look of the current Encore and gives it a far more aggressive design. It is also available with an optional Sport Touring Package for even sharper looks. The SUV comes with a number of premium features, including wireless charging and an available head-up display, so you can see important information projected in front of you on your windshield. There is also an available rear camera mirror, which allows you to see a less obstructed field of view behind you while driving. All of this comes together with the Buick Infotainment System.
The Encore GX is designed for go-getters and tech lovers. It has a hands-free power liftgate, allowing you to access the rear of your vehicle without fumbling with keys. The premium lighting improves visibility, and yet during the day, the lights look almost chrome, giving you an added touch of elegance. Then, when the sun goes down, the lights will come up as if the lighting was hidden in plain sight. While walking around the Encore GX, you'll also find there are sleek, streamlined elements to the doors and body. This is designed to help improve the airflow around the vehicle, giving you a smoother ride.
The 2020 Encore GX with Sport Touring Package may just be the boldest-looking vehicle in the Buick lineup. It uses a two-tone color design on the grille, which gives it an aggressive yet stylish look. The underside of the grille is painted red, and the front of the grille is painted black, so there is a unique styling here that isn't found on any other Buick vehicle. On the Sport Touring Package, the SUV comes standard with roof rails, so you can easily attach anything from bicycles to a kayak. When you're someone who loves the great outdoors and is looking for an SUV that can handle your gear (and in many ways is built specifically for your gear), the Encore GX with the Sport Touring Package is the SUV for you.
Modern vehicles require modern technology, and Buick is leading the way. Buick SUVs are equipped with state-of-the-art infotainment and connectivity features that allow you to discover a new level of driving comfort. Inside your Buick, you will find compatibility with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, allowing you to integrate your phone seamlessly with your vehicle's infotainment system to make phone calls, receive text messages, play music, navigate to your destination, and more. For additional entertainment, Buick offers SiriusXM satellite radio with over 150 channels of music, sports, news, and more delivered straight to your vehicle no matter where you are. The newest Buick models even offer Amazon Alexa, allowing you to control your vehicle's infotainment system or even shop while driving through natural voice commands. You can even use Alexa to have packages delivered straight to the trunk of your vehicle.
However, not all of the tech features in Buick SUVs and cars are merely for entertainment and quality of life. Available Buick OnStar means that you are always in safe hands. If you find yourself stranded on the side of the road, with OnStar Roadside Assistance, help is just a button push away. And should you be in a greater crisis than a flat tire or an empty fuel tank, OnStar Emergency Services gives you a priority connection to receive immediate police or medical assistance. If you are in a crash and cannot call for help yourself, then sensors built into your Buick will detect the emergency and notify an OnStar advisor of your situation.
If you want even more technology and connectivity for your Buick, then sign up for one of the Buick Connected Services plans. The first of these, Buick Connected Access, is entirely free for the first ten years and gives you three key features to improve your driving experience. Real-time Diagnostic alerts and monthly Vehicle Diagnostics report emails keep you up to date on how your Buick is functioning and can alert our service center when routine maintenance is needed. Buick Smart Driver monitors your driving and provides you with tips to improve; if you do well, it can also find you discounts on auto insurance. Finally, Buick Marketplace offers a host of discounts on gas, hotels, restaurants, and more to make your road trips more convenient.
The second Buick Connected Services plan, Buick Remote Access, allows you to connect your Buick to your phone through the myBuick app. This includes using your phone as a key fob to unlock your vehicle or even start it remotely. You can also monitor your Buick's location, fuel level, oil level, odometer, and even tire pressure remotely or send navigation waypoints from your phone to your vehicle. The third plan is Unlimited Access. As the name implies, this plan gives you unlimited 4G LTE data through your Buick's wireless hotspot. It also gives you in-vehicle access to a wide array of apps such as Pandora, Wall Street Journal, and Fox Sports. And last but not least, Connected Navigation updates your Buick's navigation system with real-time traffic information, while Turn By Turn Navigation gives you directions to any destination with the simple push of a button.
