2018 Buick Enclave

New and versatile comes the 2018 Buick Enclave.  This Enclave will include more third row space, improved towing, more safety technology, useful interior features, and intuitive technology.  “Every detail of the all-new Enclave is designed to feel premium, well-crafted and integrated,” said Helen Emsley, executive director of Global Buick and GMC Design.

New proportions and bodylines accentuate the redesigned front end grille. This new body was built for safety.  There are 17 radar, camera, and ultrasonic sensors that come standard and allows you to customize your safety alerts.   It can tow up to 5,000 pounds and comes with a standard 3.6 L V-6 engine.  It is estimated to have 302 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque.

Trying to top the benchmark for quietness, the 2018 is engineered to further minimize unwanted interior noise.  QuietTuning and active noise cancellation help reduce, block, and absorb noise.  “For Enclave customers, who are often driving family and friends, the ability to easily carry a conversations with passengers in all three rows is essential to their daily driving experiences,” said Dean Perelli, chief engineer for the Buick Enclave.

The Enclave has lots of cargo solutions for large and small loads. There is seating for seven. Second and third row seats fold flat to create a nearly-flat load floor. The Enclave boasts more interior space than an Acura MDX, Audi Q7, and the Infiniti QX60.

Standard on the 2018 Enclave includes keyless entry and push-button start, a hands free power programmable liftgate, tri-zone climate control, universal home remote, and six USB ports.  It will come equipped with an OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot.  An 8-inch diagonal infotainment system and Apple CarPlay and Adroid Auto is standard.

You can expect to see the 2018 Enclave on our showroom in the fall of 2017.

GM adds a new center airbag to better vehicle safety

Have you ever heard the saying ‘the more the merrier’ or ‘safety first?’ Well those were probably two things that went through the head of GM when developing the idea of a center airbag. But this wasn’t just created just for the fun of it. It functions to prevent passengers of the vehicle from clashing into each other on impact with another vehicle. The new device is set to be introduced as standard equipment on models like the Chevrolet Traverse, Buick Enclave and GMC Acadia with power seats beginning in the 2013 model year. The tethered, tube-shaped airbag deploys from the right side of the driver’s seat and positions itself in the center of the vehicle. Side impacts are the main causes of these incidents, but this is set to improve that. But hey, you can’t complain for being a little extra safe when driving behind the wheel. Even if safety’s first with these cars, style comes in a close second!
