In this age of crossovers, the automobile manufacturers in a spree of experimentation. They are into the mode of making hybrids from different vehicle body styles. crossovers are no more constricted only in combining luxury cars and SUVs, they are also seen bringing together the best of minivans and luxury cars. The 2019 Buick Enclave is one such model that has the generous size of a minivan, that relieves the occupants from the practical concept of minivan and its troublesome sliding doors by entitling a quiet interior cabin, plush with supreme luxury appointments.
The 2019 Buick Enclave looks decisively handsome, that takes the first step towards making a comfortable SUV while the interesting bunch of feature options including safety, give it a higher stance than many of its rivals.
After being smitten by its good looks and a high-end cabin, we wanted to experience the ride with this model. That was our sole reason to drop in at the Forest City Chevrolet Buick GMC dealer showroom, as we have heard a lot about this place, and their friendly staff.
A Brief on the 2019 Edition
The staff briefed us the surprising fact about the 2019 Buick Enclave that it was after ten long years of carrying the same exterior outfit, that Buick felt like re-modelling the Enclave last year. So, we can’t expect much change to take place for 2019. But that was a remarkable change for everyone to witness how the designers at Buick could craft such a muscular and well-defined shape for the Enclave series this time. However, the change worked well with the brand, as it helped the 2019 Buick Enclave sell like hot cakes in dealerships across the globe. But was it merely the looks that did the magic? We would say “no” because, what was packed under the hood had to match perfectly the aspirations of the buyers who expect a lot by looking at this newly designed Enclave model series.
The Power Choices
All the Enclave trim models of the 2019 edition have a powerful powertrain to boast about. Buick was confident enough to make a 310-horsepower making V-6 engine the standard one after pairing it with a smooth-shifting 9-speed automatic transmission. This pair of engine and transmission is configured as front-wheel drive which go standard on all the models, while all-wheel drive too is kept available on every other trim except the base model of Enclave. Other features of luxury, infotainment and creature comfort climb in ascending order with Preferred, Essence, Premium, or Avenir trim level.
Our test drive with the 2019 Buick Enclave at the Forest City Chevrolet Buick GMC dealership showroom can be best described as impressive in all respects. The drive was almost intuitionally smooth at every turn we took. Thanks to the updated suspension technology, that could handle each and every cornerso well. The powertrain with all the driving dynamics proved to be a perfect combination to soak up all the road imperfectionswith ease.
