The 2017 Buick Enclave is the leader in the clubhouse of all mid-size luxury SUVs, thanks in part to its cross-generational appeal.


We all know how difficult it is to get parents and children to agree on anything. Whether it’s music, movies, or politics, we’ve all been part of those conversations at the dinner table where an agreement just can’t be reached. (Mom and Dad’s lectures on the brilliance of “The Godfather” or Prince’s albums fall on deaf ears to today’s youth who can’t sit through a slow-paced, 3-hour epic and would rather pick and choose single songs from iTunes rather than listen to a full album.)


But thanks to the 2017 Buick Enclave, there is something mother/father and child can fully appreciate in unison.


The reviews are in, and the 2017 Buick Enclave is getting universal praise.

  • The 2017 Buick Enclave is “comfortable and classy…and still looks regal”
    • Aaron Cole
    • The Car Connection’s Managing Editor
  • “The 2017 Buick Enclave, an upscale yet still practical crossover that undercuts luxury-branded rivals on price”
    • Edmunds
  • “The Enclave delivers one of the most comfortable rides in this class,”
    •  Joe Tralongo

If you have read this far and stared at those three impressive Enclaves, you’re obviously interested and intrigued. Let’s now take a deep dive into why the 2017 Buick Enclave is a hit with both parents and kids.




We’ve all been in that pickle where we need to load up our car or small SUV with members of the little league team or with suitcases for that family vacation but we can’t jam everyone and everything in. So we end up taking both family vehicles, wasting gas and contributing to the traffic nightmare of our local city.

Like a superhero, the 2017 Buick Enclave has come to save the day.



The 2017 Buick Enclave is a wide-open, crossover SUV that comfortably seats 7 passengers…that’s mom, dad, and the entire starting 5 of the little league basketball team! The second row riders will appreciate the elevated seating and generous legroom. These second-row captain’s chairs bend, fold, and flip like a gymnast, allowing for easy maneuverability. Even with the third-row bench, the 2017 Buick Enclave allows for 23 cubic ft. of cargo space, perfect for lugging groceries, equipment, and suitcases. This cargo space is vastly multiplied to 115 cubic ft. of storage room when the second and third rows are folded down.

As much as the kiddos will love the extra space and wiggle-room, the adults will appreciate the interior beauty of the 2017 Buick Enclave. The upscale dash, the wood-trim, and the soft-touch materials make for a beautiful aesthetic. Other interior amenities that adults will appreciate include:

  • The IntelliLink touch-screen display
  • Brushed chrome accents
  • Available leather-appointed seating
  • Available heated and cooled front seats
  • Available heated steering wheel
  • Available 8-way power-adjustable front seats

Whether it’s listening to music or enjoying a family conversation, Enclave families will appreciate QuietTuning™ technology which blocks and absorbs vibrations and noise thanks to acoustic laminated glass and triple door sealing.




Parents appreciate a bold, handsome vehicle, but so do kids. Young teenagers don’t want Mom or Dad picking them up from a friend’s house in some ten-year old, scratched up sedan. The 2017 Buick Enclave has the looks the entire family will be proud of.

Robust at 202 inches in length, the 2017 Enclave is an impressive sculpture to behold, with its chrome accents, LED lighting accents, 19-inch alloy wheels, and automatic xenon headlights.


Parents will be thankful for the rear power liftgate that lifts with the simple touch of a button. Second row riders will be in awe of the available power moonroof that gives them that awesome open-air breeze and view. Other drivers will be envious when they look in their rearview mirrors and see that iconic Buick waterfall grille.



Like all Buick vehicles, the Enclave provides a stellar and impressive performance in:

  • Steering
  • Braking
  • Handling
  • And has a smooth and quiet ride, that all riders will appreciate, thanks to its dual-flow suspension and its StabiliTrak technology with traction control.

The 2017 Buick Enclave is powered by a 288hp 3.6L V-6. It comes standard with a six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive. (Gear up with the available all-wheel drive on Leather and Premium models.) For drivers with towing needs, the Enclave can be equipped to tow up to 4,500 pounds.




Families must consider a vehicle’s safety features when in the market for a crossover SUV. Parents need to trust that their SUV can withstand damaging impacts, as well as provide the latest technological safety features. Thankfully, the 2017 Buick Enclave is synonymous with safety and control.

The Buick Enclave has earned the top score by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety tests in the following categories: moderate-overlap front impact test, head restraint, roof strength, side-impact. It also was awarded a top five-star rating by the government for overall crash protection.

At over 200 inches long, weighing in at over 4,700 pounds, the 2017 Buick Enclave is equipped with the following safety features:

  • Anti-lock brakes
  • Airbags for all three rows
  • The first-of-its-kind front-center airbag
  • Rearview camera
  • Stability and traction control
  • OnStar System that includes on-demand roadside assistance and automatic crash notification

You can enhance your 2017 Buick Enclave’s already stellar safety capability with the following available safety features (some of which are standard in the Leather and Premium Enclaves):

  • Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
  • Side Blind Zone Alert
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Forward Collision Alert



Today’s parents grew up in a time when technology was not part of our everyday driving/riding experience. We manually pushed buttons deep into the dashboard to get to our favorite radio stations; we engaged in the license-plate game on road trips; we gazed out into nature while riding in the back. Today’s children couldn’t and wouldn’t last three seconds in that “boring,” technology-free environment. Buick knows this and has equipped its 2017 Enclave with all the technological perks and gadgets that are now standard in today’s driving culture.

The Buick IntelliLink system is the standard bearer of today’s automobile technology. Parents and children can demand the Enclave to play music or make calls thanks to voice recognition capabilities.

Children will go bonkers for the available 4G Wi-Fi Hotspot that works for up to seven devices. Parents will go bonkers for the available Navigation feature that works with the IntelliLink system to provide voice-activated directions and real-time traffic info.

For those lengthy vacation trips, the back two rows will be amazed by the available rear-seat entertainment system that includes an 8-inch flat screen, a DVD player, and surround sound.

It only took a few thousand years, but finally there is one thing parents and children can agree on…the 2017 Buick Enclave is the only mid-size luxury SUV that should be parked in the driveway. Priced below many of its luxury SUV competitors, the 2017 Buick Enclave is the overwhelming choice for today’s families.
