Only few decades ago it was much simpler to categorize each and every vehicle but now we have sub categories and categories that have been made by combining two or even more different segments. From the 2015 Buick Enclave we are getting pretty much the perfect family vehicle that offers many advantages with only few small drawbacks.
Looking at this car and similar vehicles in this part of the industry we can conclude that it comes as a combination of station wagons, or better to say evolution of those models. These new units offer much more modern design, better looks, higher efficiency, performances, drivability, higher safety level and much more. Main competition here are the Audi Q7 and Acura MDX and product from Buick represents a great option for those not wanting to get imports. Test and direct comparison will be done when this model comes to the market and this is expected before the end of this year, most likely during the fall.
Release Date Of 2015 Buick Enclave
This time we will start with engine since we are getting really one great. Under the hood Buick decided to deliver 3.6 liter V6 unit again. This naturally aspirated engine pumps out 288 hp at 6300 rpm and 270 lb-ft of torque that is delivered at 3400 rpm. Even Enclave is a large and heavy vehicle when this engine is paired with six speed automatic transmission it will offer decent acceleration and performances while the fuel economy is still at acceptable level. According to EPA we will be getting 17/24 mpg for a FWD model and 16/22 for AWD version.
Just like it was the case with 2014th model this one again will come with LED headlights and waterfall grille that further pushes the refinement, aggression and road presence of this vehicle. Standard 18 inch alloy wheels are offered while those wanting more can chose 19 or 20 inch alloys. Chrome accents are present all over and we can see those on grille, exhaust tips and roof rails.
We are used to get high level of luxury and comfort in interior in vehicles of this auto maker and it is the same situation with 2015 Buick Enclave. Dashboard is nicely designed offering quite clean and simple looks but still manages to offer all the most important functions on hand reach. Through an IntilliLink it will be possible to control every aspect of this car and to get all the most important info about different systems. There are two configurations and you can choose between 7 or 8 passenger seating setups plus simple operation of seats allows you to easily and fast increase the amount of cargo space.
We could hear from many people and what we have concluded is that the 2015 Buick Enclave comes with quite great suspension setup. This model will bring direct steering that will push the driving experience to the next level. Steering wheel will always return accurate info about the road conditions and you will always know the amount of grip that you have.
2015 Buick Enclave Price
Prices will be slightly different than it was the case with 2014th model, we do expect to see only slight increase of about few hundreds. If this happens than the base price will slightly lower than $40,000 that is competitive with other models in this segment and even slightly cheaper. Fully loaded version with all-wheel drive system will be priced at more than $55,000.
