2012 Buick Enclave Review

The 2012 Buick Enclave is a remarkable study in form composition comfort and performance. The 3.6L VVT V6 engine puts out 288 horsepower and delivers better highway fuel economy than any other 8-passenger crossover. Enclave’s intricate 6-speed automatic transmission works to help maximize performance and efficiency. Enclave’s cabin is pure indulgence. From the available French-seam leather appointments to the brushed chrome accents and warm wood tones. It’s the details that make the Enclave truly special. And with tri-zone climate controls the driver front seat passenger and the second row can each control their temperature settings. Technology also surrounds with features like remote keyless entry and remote vehicle start Bluetooth hands-free system rearview backup camera and DVD navigation. Enclave’s standard Stabilitrak has the extraordinary ability to sense the direction in which you’re steering and the power to help you keep Enclave on course. The 2012 Buick Enclave the finest luxury crossover ever.
