With its base price coming in at more than $41,000, the 2019 Enclave is appropriately equipped for an SUV in this price range. With every option ticked the Enclave checks in at more than $60,000, but we like the infotainment options and interior finishes in all trim levels. With this in mind, we give the Enclave an 8 out of 10 for features. (Read more about how we rate cars.)
The Enclave is offered in four trim levels for 2019: Preferred, Essence, Premium, and Avenir. Buick throws in a long list of standard kit, with interesting features like keyless ignition, LED headlights, heated front seats, and remote start at no additional cost.
The base model starts at $40,990 including destination, but is only available standard in white. Two other color options are available for $395 more: black and silver. This is not unique to the Enclave in Buick’s lineup, but makes other trims a better option for most people. All-wheel drive is not available in base models.
Essence trim brings leather, advanced safety tech, 20-inch wheels, and several more upcharge color options to the party. All-wheel drive is also available here. At $44,690 with destination, the Essence trim is our choice for the best value, offering a solid mix of included options without a screaming price tag.
Buick’s Avenir-trimmed Enclave with added interior and exterior accessories easily tops $60,000. The payoff is an SUV that’s loaded to the gills with every option, including navigation, heated steering wheel, 20-inch wheels, dual moonroofs, wireless phone charging, a surround-view camera system, unique appearance features, and a premium suspension package.
The Enclave includes an 8.0-inch touchscreen and 4G-LTE hotspot as standard equipment and has six USB ports sprinkled across the cabin and all three rows. The IntelliLink interface is simple, clean, and one of the easier to use systems we’ve experienced. With that said, we still prefer using Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which are also standard.
