How Much Does the Buick Enclave Cost

The 2020 Buick Enclave has a base MSRP of $40,000. That’s 

higher than many midsize rivals but lower than many luxury 

competitors. The Enclave's high-end Avenir trim starts at $53,800.

How Many People Does the Enclave Seat

The 2020 Buick Enclave seats seven people in three rows. Heated 

and power-adjustable front seats are standard, as is cloth 

upholstery. Upgrades include leather upholstery, ventilation and 

massage functions for the front seats, heated second-row captain’s 

chairs, a power-folding third row, and a heated steering wheel.

The first two rows are spacious and comfortable, and the second 

row slides forward to allow easy entry to the back. Two adults will 

be OK in the third row for short trips, but on longer journeys, that 

space is best left for kids.

Enclave and Child Car Seats

This SUV has two full sets of LATCH connectors for the second 

row. There are also tether anchors for each third-row seat.

Enclave Interior Quality

Despite some nice cabin materials, a few cheap plastics keep this 

Buick from looking or feeling as upscale as some rivals.

Enclave Cargo Space

This vehicle has 23.6 cubic feet of space behind the third row, 

which is pretty good for a three-row SUV. It has 58 cubic feet 

behind the second row and a maximum cargo capacity of 97.6 

cubic feet. These figures are above average for the midsize SUV 


Enclave Infotainment, Bluetooth, and Navigation

The base Enclave Preferred comes with a wide array of tech 

features. Its infotainment system has an 8-inch touch screen, 

smartphone connectivity via Apple Car Play and Android Auto, a 

six-speaker stereo, a WiFi hot spot, satellite radio, Bluetooth, six 

USB ports, and Siri Eyes Free. Navigation, wireless device 

charging, a premium 10-speaker Bose sound system, an 8-inch 

driver display, and a dual-pane moon roof are available.

It’s easy to use the Enclave’s technology. There are plenty of 

physical controls for commonly used functions, and the touch 

screen responds quickly to inputs.

Enclave Performance

Enclave Engine: Strong and Smooth

The sole power train in the Enclave is a 3.6-liter V6 engine that 

produces 310 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. It’s mated 

to a nine-speed automatic transmission. The Enclave has a peppy 

engine, swift acceleration, and a smooth transmission. The 

standard engine stop-start system engages with minimal disruption.

Enclave Gas Mileage: Par for the Course

This vehicle gets an EPA-estimated 18 mpg in the city and 26 mpg 

on the highway. That’s typical for a midsize SUV. Adding all-

wheel drive reduces each figure by 1 mpg.

Enclave Ride and Handling: Gentle Cruiser

This Buick rides gently over most roads, and its suspension 

absorbs bumps and potholes well before they can jolt occupants. 

The Enclave is not athletic, but firm brakes and minimal body lean 

help it stay composed. Front-wheel drive comes standard, and all-

wheel drive is available.

or 36,000 miles and a power train warranty lasting five years or 

60,000 miles.

Enclave earned five stars in the side crash test and four stars in the 

frontal crash and rollover evaluations.

At the time of writing, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety 

has not crash tested the 2020 Enclave.

lane departure warning, lane change alert, blind spot monitoring, 

rear cross traffic alert, front parking sensors, forward collision 

warning, pedestrian detection, low-speed forward automatic 

emergency braking, high-speed emergency braking, a rear camera 

mirror, a surround-view parking camera system, a following 

distance indicator, adaptive cruise control, automatic high-beam

from 4,359 to 4,685 pounds.

Which Buick Enclave Model Is Right for Me

Buick offers the Enclave in four trim levels: Preferred, Essence, 

Premium, and Avenir. Since they have the same engine – a 3.6-liter 

V6 – the main difference between them is features. The base trim 

comes fairly well-equipped in terms of technology, making it a 

good pick. However, shoppers after more safety features, leather 

upholstery, or all-wheel drive should look to at least the Enclave 

Essence, as it’s the first trim to offer them as options.

Buick Enclave Preferred

The entry-level Preferred trim has a starting MSRP of $40,000. It 

comes with an 8-inch touch screen, a WiFi hot spot, Apple Car 

Play, Android Auto, a six-speaker stereo, satellite radio, Bluetooth, 

six USB ports, Siri Eyes Free, cloth upholstery, power-adjustable 

front seats, heated front seats, proximity key less entry, remote 

start, and tri-zone automatic climate control. Also standard are a 

rear view camera and rear parking sensors, as well as a hands-free 

power lift gate.

Although a few packages are available, they only add exterior 

styling tweaks, such as roof rails or a chrome grille. AWD is not 

available in this trim.

Buick Enclave Essence

The Essence trim gains lane change alert, blind spot monitoring, 

rear cross traffic alert, and leather seats. It retails for $42,000. 

Adding AWD costs $2,000.

In addition to the packages available for the Preferred trim, the 

Essence can be outfitted with a moon roof for $1,400. A rear 

camera mirror and surround-view parking camera system can be 

had for $825. The Sound and Sites package costs $1,395 and adds 

navigation, a 120-volt household-style power outlet, and a 10-

speaker Bose stereo.

Buick Enclave Premium

With a base price of $48,400, the Buick Enclave Premium picks up 

a 10-speaker Bose stereo, a 120-volt household-style power outlet, 

a heated steering wheel, ventilated and massaging front seats, 

heated second-row seats, a power-folding third-row, automatic 

high-beam headlights, forward collision alert with automatic 

braking, front parking sensors, a following distance indicator, lane 

keep assist, lane departure warning, and a safety alert seat.

Many of the same options and packages from previous trims are 

available. AWD costs $2,300 with the Premium trim.

Buick Enclave Avenir

The top-of-the-line Avenir trim has a starting MSRP of $53,800. It 

gains many of the options listed above, as well as an 8-inch 

customizable driver display, wireless device charging, and a wood-

trimmed steering wheel.

AWD costs an additional $2,300 for Avenir models. Exclusive to 

this trim is the Avenir Technology package, which gives you a 

retuned chassis and suspension, upgraded automatic emergency 

braking, and adaptive cruise control for $2,095.
