2012 Buick Enclave is a Glorious Family Hauler

The 2012 Buick Enclave remains one of the most popular full-size crossover SUVs, with good reason.
The 3.6-liter V-6 engine makes 288 horsepower and 270 pounds-feet of torque and provides terrific power and performance. There is a six-speed automatic transmission and four-wheel disc brakes.
The Enclave gives you 115 cubic feet of cargo volume and tows up to 2,000 pounds, providing versatility that comes in handy. There is an optional four-wheel drive system.

The Enclave takes regular unleaded fuel and is rated at 17 mpg city, 24 highway or 16 and 22 with four-wheel drive. 
The Enclave has striking good looks, with its large chrome grille and HID xenon projector headlights. The standard tire size is 19 inches, but optional are 20-inch all-season tires with chrome-clad aluminum rims. If you purchase the Premium Group trim you receive articulating headlamps that turn as the car does and power-folding, heated side mirrors. The rear power lift gate is standard.

You'll find plenty of room for passengers in the Enclave, with 154 cubic feet of passenger volume offered.  In the second row of seats, captain chairs are standard, but you can also get a bench that bumps up seating capacity to eight.

There are some nifty standard amenities too, such as the leather/wood gear shift knob, accessory power outlet, Bluetooth, cruise control, OnStar, satellite radio and a universal home remote.
 The optional Bose sound system gives 10 speakers that bring great sound quality and volume.

The Enclave has Buick’s “All-around air bag system” with frontal air bags, side-impact air bags and side curtain air bags in all rows. OnStar's safety features include automatic crash response and remote door unlock. The Enclave also has brake assist and hill assist.



The test drive model, a Premium Group trim edition, carried a hefty price tag of $50,970.

The Enclave's comfort, power and utility make it a terrific family vehicle.
