Just as we all know, Buick is one of the luxury crossover SUV divisions for GM which not only offers great quality but also great prices as well. The 2016 Buick Enclave is one of the most interesting cars to leave the Buick factory mainly thanks to its low acquisition price as well as its great engines. While the previous car didn’t really managed to get the success it deserved, the newer model is most likely going to thanks to all the improvements Buick is going to implement to the new Buick Enclave 2016.
2016 Buick Enclave redesign
The Buick Enclave 2016 exterior is also going to change but not as much as its interior. Buick is going to give it a mild facelift in order to keep the car’s look close to the current Buick lineup and also to allow its customers to recognize the model with ease. On the inside of the 2016 Buick Enclave there are also going to be quite a bit of changes. While the materials are going to remain mostly unchanged in order to keep the costs in check, the layout of the dashboard as well as the seats are going to be new. These will offer a much better experience as well as more ease of use which was missing from the previous car. Just like before, any model will get dual zone automatic climate control, three rows of seats, an infotainment system as well as electric front seats.
2016 Buick Enclave specs
Under the hood of the new 2016 Buick Enclave there are most likely going to be two new engines. The base model will likely ditch the old 3.6-liter aspirated V6 due to its high fuel consumption, in the favor of the new 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-4 which is good for 280 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque, which is almost as much as the V6 but with a much better fuel consumption.
The top end model on the other hand is very likely to receive the new 3.6-liter twin-turbocharged V6, but unlike the Cadillac, the Buick Enclave 2016 might be rated to a lower 360 to 390 horsepower in order to save fuel. This is going to use just as much fuel as the older base engine but it will offer much better performance. Expect at least 20 MPG on average from any of these two.
2016 Buick Enclave release date
The 2016 Buick Enclave will offer a very similar platform to the current generation meaning that there aren’t going to be that many changes. However, the engines as well as its interior are in need of an urgent upgrade considering all of its competitors not only come better equipped but also with more powerful engines. The base price is expected to remain unchanged, so expect around $25,000 for the base model and as much as $60,000 for fully loaded Buick luxury crossover SUV. The new Buick Enclave 2016 is going to be released by the end of 2015.
