First look: Buick Enclave breaks with tradition

Luxury off-roader: The Enclave is Buick's first SUV.

Buick uses luxury four-wheel drive to shed staid image

6 Dec 2006

TRYING to break free from its image as an "old man’s brand", Buick used golfer Tiger Woods to introduce its first luxury crossover SUV – the Enclave.

Built on an all-new "crossover" platform, the Enclave is powered by a 205kW 3.6-litre VVT V6, although a V8 will also be offered when it goes on sale in the US next year.

The six-seater Enclave will be available in either front-wheel or all-wheel drive, mated to a six-speed automatic.

The vehicle also boasts other peace-of-mind features such as active headlights, rear parking assistance and reversing camera, an electronic stability control system and GM's OnStar navigation system.

The interior features lashings of leather, aluminium and wood utilised in curved or rounded elements, like the dashboard, recalling the style of classic Buick models.

The vehicle's second - and third-row seats can also be folded flat for a long load area.
