2017 Buick Enclave adds Sport Touring Trim

October 16th, 2016 by


The 2017 Buick Enclave to introduce the new trim and package upgrades in 2017

The Buick Enclave presents a family friendly luxury SUV with high customer and expert reviews. According to KBB the vehicle is good for those that are “looking for a large, comfortable luxury-crossover SUV with a proven record, an adult-friendly 3rd-row seat and a comfortable ride, the 8-passenger 2017 Buick Enclave deserves a test drive.” Edmunds states that the 2017 Buick Enclave presents a “Smooth ride even when the road isn’t; seating for up to eight and cargo space to match; peace of mind that comes with top safety scores.” In both cases, we agree.

Exterior Styling

The 2017 Buick Enclave is a full sized SUV. As such, sculpting had to take into consideration the size and sleekness of the design in order to keep the vehicle from falling into the stereotypical “boxy” look of other SUVs available. Because of this, subtle curves have been added to the side panels are well as definitive curves to the front fascia. The rear sculpting of the 2017 Enclave has been specifically designed to reduce drag and to advert the deign from chopped off aesthetics which seem to dominate other full sized SUVs. Coupled with the curves are well placed angled accents. Depending on the trim selection chosen the accents can be further enhanced on the exterior. For example, with the new Sports Touring Trim package, the front grille is embellished to present a more pronounced front end sculpting/trim option.

The 2017 Buick Enclave is available in three trim selections. These are the Convenience, Leather, and Premium trims. The Standard base model is the convenience option which comes with the least amount of premium features. Though the Convenience trim is equipped with standard features such as 19inch alloy wheels, automatic xeon headlights, and remote engine start, those which desire to have more technology features and upgrades should consider the Leather or Premium trim option. Talk with your dealership about the trim option best suited to your driving and personal styling needs.


The 2017 Buick Enclave has a 3.6L V6 six-speed automatic transmission. The transmission does come with a front wheel drive setup standard, but owners can opt to upgrade the driving options to a six speed all-wheel-drive transmission on selected models. Due to the 3.6L engine and to the fact that the vehicle is oriented to the family, considerations have been given to the design for towing. With the proper configuration of the model and towing packages, the 2017 Buick Enclave can handle towing poundage of up to 4,500 lbs.

In performance testing the 2017 Buick Enclave received 0 to 60 ratings which were competitive to other vehicles within its class. Again, the smooth ride of the vehicle has been tested and praised by various expert reviews. And where the vehicle does rest upon a chassis with a low center of gravity which is not too far off from the ground, the spacing of the chassis from the terrain is suitable to cover most terrain without scrubbing on debris and common road hazards (such as potholes or steep driveways).


As with any Buick, safety is a primary focus of the 2017 Enclave. Equipped with antilock brakes, traction control, and strategically placed airbags, the standard features have helped the vehicle receive high safety test scores. Additional safety packages are available as well as driver enhancement packages which can further minimize driver distractions and increase the awareness and ease of navigation while driving. Specifically, rear-cross traffic alert and blind-spot waring systems as well as the forward collision and lane departure warnings can greatly reduce the risk of an accident.
