The upgraded 2013 Buick Enclave crossover will have a starting price of $39,270 when it’s released this fall, General Motors Co. said.
The locally made vehicle, built at the Detroit-based automaker’s Lansing Delta Township assembly plant along with the Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia, will be restyled and include new equipment and safety features.
Like the 2013 GMC Acadia, the 2013 Buick Enclave is powered by a 3.6-liter V-6 producing 288 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque. Buick says the six-speed automatic transmission has been retuned for the 2013 model year. EPA-rated fuel economy is 17 mpg in city and 24 mpg in highway for front-drive models and 16Mpg in city and 22 mpg in highway, for the all-wheel-drive Enclave.
Every 2013 Buick Enclave comes with standard HID(High Intensity Discharge) headlights, a rear-view camera, rear parking sensors, remote start, a seven-inch touch-screen infotainment display with IntelliLink, GM’s new front-center air bag, and a power liftgate. Navigation costs start from $795-$1540 depending on the trim level and, as on the GMC Acadia, all-wheel drive is a $2000 option.The Enclave’s seven-passenger layout has been replaced with an eight-seat arrangement, which is a no-cost option.
The 2013 Enclave with the Leather Group at $43,285, it includes all standard leather group equipments, heated front seats, an eight-way power passenger seat, Side Blind Zone Alert, memory seat settings, as well as a blindspot monitoring system with Cross Traffic Alert.
One step up to the 2013 Enclave with the Premium Group at $46,450 and you’ll get 19-inch chrome wheels (the standard model gets 18-inchers), headlights that turn around corners, a Bose premium sound system, cooled front seats, power-folding side mirrors, and a power tilt/telescoping steering column.
All Enclaves get LED daytime running lights and, LED-accented taillights add design and technology on the Enclave’s exterior, while new ambient interior lighting adds a cool Ice Blue glow to the cabin, as with the 2012 Enclave, comes a 20-inch wheel option.
The 2013 Buick Enclave full-size crossover’s base price may be about $2000 higher than the 2012 Enclave, but it remains about $2000 below the Buick’s prime competitor: the 2013 Infiniti JX. Just a day after the 2013 GMC Acadia was priced at $34,875, the new Buick reveals that its revised style comes at a price: $39,270 including $825 for destination.
“The original Enclave was a catalyst for the Buick, defining the brand’s high standards of design and refinement,” said Tony DiSalle, vice president of Buick Marketing. “The new 2013 model takes another step forward with a bolder look and advanced technologies.”
The long list of uprgrades on the new 2013 model, will definitely increase the ratio of crowd turning out for this new 2013 Buick Enclave, and as such the prices have been slashed, which states that the new model for the year 2013 has taken an another step forward to bring out a standard three-row seat luxury crossover to the masses.
