When you’re looking for a midsize SUV, you probably want something capable in regard to performance yet flexible when it comes to fuel. In short, you want reasonable mileage but enough towing capacity to get where you need to go. You’ll also want plenty of space for passengers and cargo alike. When you decide to go with a luxurious SUV, though, you’ll want all of this but with entertainment and aesthetic features to boot. That’s why today, we’re bringing you details on the 2021 Buick Enclave, the midsize luxury SUV you’ve been waiting for.
Buick is known for its exquisite taste and affordable price. The brand creates luxury vehicles similar to Cadillacs and Lincolns, but at a price that’s reasonable for the average buyer. The Enclave is proof of this. This model can tow up to 5,000 pounds, it can get up to 26 miles per gallon, and its 3.6-liter V6 engine paired with the all-wheel drive option will take you off the pavement with ease. The Enclave carries off-roading capabilities and pairs them with a fancy exterior and interior appeal, making them an all-around amazing vehicle. If you’re looking for an SUV that’s luxurious rather than rugged, the 2021 Buick Enclave is for you.
There’s a wide variety of customization options on the 2021 Buick Enclave. Generally speaking, it has a luxury aesthetic with sporty add-on options. It comes in 7 different colors, including neutral shades and a Red Quartz tri-coat option. It comes with either a black or tan leather interior and an abundance of wheel options. With the exception of the Avenir, all trims come with 18-inch standard painted aluminum wheels and options for 20-inch aluminum, 20-inch machined faced black wheels, and 20-inch Midnight Silver aluminum wheels. Buyers can add other aesthetic options such as roof rack cross rails, assist steps, splash guards, puddle lamps, and different grille options.
In addition to singular add-ons, there are several aesthetic packages available also. These include the Touring Package, which comes with special all-season tires, 20-inch Satin Graphite wheels, a spare wheel and tire, and molded assist steps. The Sport Touring Edition is also available, which includes just the tires and wheels. With the Luxury Package, you’ll get a chrome grille with a black mesh insert and molded assist steps.
There are also interior packages like the Floor Liner Package and the Interior Protection Package that include floor liners and mats, along with cargo lining. The Sun and Sites package, available for the Premium trim, includes 20-inch aluminum wheels and all-season tires, along with an upgraded infotainment system and a power moonroof/skylight. Thanks to all these options, you can customize your 2021 Buick Enclave to be as basic or as luxurious as you’d like.
The 2021 Buick Enclave’s safety is exceptional, with multiple driver assist features, airbags, and a passenger seat sensing system. Let’s take a look at what the Enclave’s safety tech can do. First, we’ve got automatic emergency braking. Thanks to sensors and cameras, this system can automatically stop your Enclave if it senses collision danger. This isn’t limited to vehicles, either, as the AEB system can see humans and other objects in many cases as well, which is true for the Enclave since it’s paired with front pedestrian braking.
Next up, we’ve got front and rear park assist. These technologies use sensors that send auditory alerts letting drivers know when objects are close by. The alert will strengthen as drivers get closer, and eventually, your automatic braking will kick in if you don’t heed the warnings. Forward collision alert works similarly, but at higher speeds, designed more for highway driving. Lane change alert with side blind zone tag-team to let you know when a vehicle is approaching your blind zone and when it’s actually in it, keeping drivers from sideswiping or cutting off traffic. Lane keep assist with lane departure warning works a bit differently, helping drivers stay in their designated lane and correcting/sending warnings when the driver unintentionally drifts. These driver assist features, when used together, can help prevent accidents as long as the driver stays attentive.
In addition to these features, the 2021 Buick Enclave also includes OnStar and Buick Connected Service subscription options. If you want to pay extra to stay even safer, these options are ideal. These services are divided up between different subscription levels. The lowest level is Connected Access, and it includes vehicle diagnostics, Buick Smart Driver, which rewards safe driving with insurance discounts, the marketplace, and unlimited data. This comes with your Buick for free for up to 10 years.
You can upgrade to the Remote Access Plan to get the Remote Key Fob system, which includes the aforementioned features, along with more options such as remote engine start, a vehicle locator, and on-demand diagnostics. Finally, the Unlimited Access Plan includes unlimited 4G LTE, turn-by-turn navigation, connected navigation, and in-vehicle app access. It’s safe to say that the 2021 Buick Enclave’s luxury carries over into its tech specs, too.
There are a few more safety features on the 2021 Enclave as well. These include HD surround vision, which gives you multiple camera views. You’ll get front and rear camera view, front and rear top-down view, front and rear bowl view, surround view, and 360 bowl view. This allows everything from distinct section views to an overall birds-eye view of your vehicle. This proves helpful when trying to navigate through tight spaces or when safely exiting your vehicle isn’t possible. Between the available cameras and all the aforementioned safety features, you can rest assured that you’re safe when driving a 2021 Buick Enclave.
The 2021 Buick Enclave is packed with safety tech, sure, but it’s equally packed with entertainment and convenience technology as well. First off, the driver will have access to heated and ventilated seating that self-adjusts to the environment. In short, there’s no need to worry about getting too hot or too cold. Further, the Smart Sliding second row seating makes it easier to load up cargo and passengers alike. You’ll also get a rear camera mirror, an air filtration system, a de-fogger, rear air conditioning and heating vents, a rear cargo underfloor space, a humidity sensor, keyless entry, and much more.
On top of all this, the entertainment system is capable of managing Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Spotify, and SiriusXM with 360L. It can also handle Bluetooth streaming, it offers voice recognition, and you can create multiple customized profiles for each passenger/driver so that you don’t have to reset any settings. All of this pairs nicely with the 2021 Buick Enclave’s 10-speaker Bose sound system.
Speaking of sound, the Enclave also offers something called QuietTuning Buick, which uses noise cancellation technologies to block exterior sounds. This is especially beneficial when driving on the interstate or through the rain. This, combined with the Bose speaker system, creates the ideal audio experience.
Lastly, the 2021 Buick Enclave includes six USB ports spread throughout the vehicle. These include charging ports, and auxiliary ports, alike. There’s also available wireless device charging. It still includes HD radio, like AM and FM options, alongside satellite radio capabilities. Between its modern technology and its traditional adaptability, the 2021 Buick Enclave proves itself diverse and convenient.
