Whether your journey is short around Yellowknife or a longer trek further afield, it will always be a comfortable and enjoyable trip when you make it in a 2024 Buick Enclave. The Enclave is a three-row midsize crossover SUV with a fabulously interior that’s as luxurious and well-equipped as it is spacious. The 2024 Enclave sits between mass-market and luxury models. Still, it’s hard to believe it isn’t a full-blown luxury offering when even the entry model gets perforated leather upholstery and standard all-wheel drive.
While it’s evident that comfort and luxury are big priorities for the 2024 Buick Enclave, there’s also a big focus on the latest advanced vehicle technology. The midsize Buick provides easy access to maps, music, and much more with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, allowing easy access to many of your favourite mobile phone apps. And wireless smartphone charging capability keeps your phone charged and your cabin free of clutter.
However, that’s just the start. The 2024 Enclave is also available with Alexa Built-In, which means you only have to ask the system, and it will play your favourite music, navigate to your chosen destination, control your smart home devices while you’re on the go, make phone calls, sends text messages, and much more.
The 2024 Buick Enclave is towards the larger side of the midsize segment, which means it can be reasonably heavy with a full complement of people and cargo onboard. That means an appropriately potent engine is required, and that’s precisely what the Enclave has under its hood. The entry-level Essence, mid-range Premium, and range-topping Avenir all feature the same powerplant, a 3.6-litre V-6 that develops 310 horsepower and 266 lb.-ft. of torque.
In all three cases, the power gets sent to all four wheels through a standard nine-speed automatic transmission. The Enclave’s V-6 features stop/start technology that cuts the engine when the vehicle stops to help improve fuel economy. The Enclave also features Buick’s innovative five-link rear suspension system that helps to deliver a smooth ride, confident handling, and reduced cabin noise. Cabin noise gets reduced to even lower levels thanks to Buick QuietTuning, which employs several technologies to help reduce, block, and absorb unwanted sounds for a whisper-quiet experience for all inside.
The 2024 Buick Enclave’s standard equipment list is long, even if you are looking at the base model. The entry-level Enclave Essence beats some of its top-of-the-range mass-market rivals for standard features, and the Premium and Avenir models are in a class of their own. The Premium and Avenir both come with perforated leather upholstery, a head-up display, an 8.0-inch digital driver information display, a 10-speaker Bose sound system, HD Surround Vision, and heated and ventilated front seats as part of their standard specification. All models, including the Essence, even come with a standard hands-free power programmable liftgate with LED logo projection.
A family-orientated vehicle like the 2024 Enclave needs to be safe, and that’s well taken care of with the Buick Driver Confidence Plus suite of advanced safety and driver-assistance technologies that’s standard across the range. The package includes Automatic Emergency Braking, Following Distance Indicator, Forward Collision Alert, Front Pedestrian Braking, IntelliBeam Auto High Beams, Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and Front & Rear Park Assist.
If the stunning exterior styling, luxuriously spacious interior, and fantastic list of standard equipment haven’t convinced you that the 2024 Buick Enclave is the best family vehicle in its class, how about the fact that it can also tow up to as much as 2,268 kg?
