Making its official debut in 2008, the Buick Enclave was the American automaker’s first large crossover and had big shoes to fill since it replaced the Rainier SUV and the Terraza minivan. The Enclave’s debut came at the perfect time as more and more consumers discovered the benefits of driving a crossover that combined the practicality of a sedan with the spaciousness of an SUV. This earned the Enclave its place in the Buick lineup back in 2008 and is exactly what we find on the stunning 2021 Buick Enclave today.
Starting at $40,300,* the 2021 Enclave reflects Buick’s commitment to delivering affordable luxury and great value whether you’re shopping for the base model or the top-tier Avenir trim. The Preferred base model is packed with features, including the Buick Infotainment system with a color touchscreen display and luxurious details like a leather-wrapped steering wheel. At the other end of the spectrum sits the Avenir, which boasts every feature imaginable from an exclusive Avenir grille and unique styling to a power moonroof, wireless smartphone charging station, and the HD Surround Vision and Rear Camera Mirror.
Regardless of whether you’re shopping for the Preferred, mid-range trims like the Essence or Premium, or the opulent Avenir, the Enclave has something to offer every budget and driving need. How so? From the power under its hood that makes it a capable hauler to its innovative tech and safety features, the 2021 Enclave is a great option if you’re looking for an affordable and luxurious SUV that can navigate all your adventures and the road’s demands with ease.
The 2021 Enclave is a midsize SUV that’s designed to handle every demand, whether that means navigating your carpool duties and errands in town or cruising down the highway on a family vacation. Offering seating for seven and a spacious interior packed with luxury features, you’ll find that the Enclave is one of the most comfortable crossovers on the market regardless of whether you’re in the driver’s seat or riding in the spacious third row. Here are a few features that make the Enclave’s interior especially comfortable and accommodating for you and your passengers:
Buick designed the 2021 Enclave to keep the sounds of the road right where they belong - outside. The Enclave offers an exceptionally quiet ride courtesy of Buick’s innovative QuietTuning technology and Active Noise Cancellation that reduces and blocks unwanted noises. This means you’ll have an easier time talking with your passengers in the third row without the commotion of the world outside.
The Enclave can meet all the demands of your life, whether you’re picking up the kids from school and taking them (and their gear) to soccer practice, or you’re loaded down with groceries for the week. Unlike many third-row crossovers, the Enclave makes it easy to access the third row with its Smart Slide technology. With the pull of a handle, the second-row seats slide and pitch forward to give you a clear path to the back row. To maximize space and reap the benefits of the Enclave’s maximum 97.6 cubic feet of cargo space, you can fold down both the second and third rows.
You can start the Enclave’s engine remotely, which is a great way to ensure the SUV is at the perfect temperature when it’s time to set off on your next adventure. However, the feature adds another level of comfort by automatically heating and ventilating the front seats to ensure you’re instantly comfortable when you get behind the wheel. Once you’re on the road, the Enclave will automatically adjust the temperature based on your personal settings and the temperature sensors. You can also add an in-seat massage feature, which makes the Enclave one of the most enjoyable crossovers to drive.
Buick knows that the road can be unpredictable, and that’s why the automaker doesn’t shy away from offering the most innovative safety and driver awareness tools available. These tools are designed to give you confidence in the Enclave, whether you’re in the driver’s seat or riding as a passenger. Here’s a closer look at the tools that helped earn the 2021 Enclave a five-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Every Enclave in the lineup is equipped with an HD Rear Vision Camera that gives you a clear view behind the SUV. You’ll have an even better view with the HD Surround Vision camera that gives you a birds-eye view of the entire vehicle. The HD Surround Vision is standard on the Avenir and an upgrade on the Essence and Premium trims.
The Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert available feature gives you confidence when changing lanes by notifying you when there’s a vehicle in the Enclave’s blind spot.
Rear Cross Traffic Alert protects the rear of the Enclave by notifying you of traffic crossing behind the SUV when you’re in reverse. This is especially helpful when you’re navigating out of a parking space on a busy city street or in a congested parking lot. Front Pedestrian Braking works similarly to help you avoid front-end collisions with pedestrians in the Enclave’s path.
Forward Collision Alert warns you of potential front-end collisions, such as when you’re following too closely (Following Distance Indicator) and tailgating. The system works with Automatic Emergency Braking to bring the vehicle to a complete stop or to enhance your braking when a collision is imminent.
Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning is a great tool when you’re traveling down the highway and unintentionally drift out of your lane. When this happens, the technology gently turns the steering wheel to alert you to refocus your attention and steer the vehicle back in its lane.
OnStar Safety & Security is an added layer of safety when you’re on the road. The available system offers roadside assistance that can help you anytime and anywhere, whether you’re out of gas or stuck on the side of the road with a flat tire. The feature also provides Emergency Services and an Automatic Crash Response, both of which get first responders to you faster in an emergency by notifying emergency services when your airbags deploy.
One of the most notable features of the 2021 Enclave is its technology that ensures you stay connected wherever the road takes you. Fortunately, that connectivity isn’t mutually exclusive with safety, which is why Buick goes to great lengths to give you seamless connectivity that allows you to keep your eyes and your focus on the road ahead. Here are the top tech features you won’t want to miss on the 2021 Enclave.
The Buick Infotainment System comes standard on an 8-inch diagonal color touchscreen display that puts everything you need at your fingertips. You can access a variety of in-vehicle apps like Spotify, take advantage of Buick’s Connected Navigation, access the available 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, and sync your smartphone using Apple CarPlay or Android Auto integration.
Whether you’re traveling for work or fun, you’ll always know where you’re going, thanks to Buick’s Connected Navigation. This tool gives you access to real-time maps, speed limit data, and turn-by-turn directions so that you’ll have all the information you need to safely get from Point A to Point B.
If you’re tired of listening to your playlist, Buick has the answer with the available SiriusXM with 360L. As SiriusXM’s most advanced listening experience, the technology offers premium content and innovative features that make recommendations based on your listening preferences. This makes it easy to find new content that will keep you entertained for many miles ahead.
Did you know that you can control your Enclave from the palm of your hand? Thanks to Buick’s Connected Services, you can use an app on your smartphone to access services like Buick Smart Driver, Vehicle Diagnostics, and Remote Access. These tools allow you to monitor the health of your SUV as well as remotely start the engine so that it’s ready the moment you get behind the wheel.
