As we previously wrote, the 2013 Buick Enclave gets updated this year with a new look on the outside, an updated interior, more standard equipment, added safety technologies and IntelliLink media connectivity. The 2013 Enclave will start at $39,270 including an $825 destination charge.


The 2013 Enclave will offer three different equipment groups, all with standard content including a seven-inch Color Touch radio with IntelliLink, high-intensity discharge headlamps, Rear Parking Assist, a Rear Vision Camera, remote start, a power liftgate and other luxury features. Every 2013 model also comes standard with the industry's first front-center air bag, which is designed to protect drivers and front passengers in far-side impact crashes.


An Enclave with the Leather Group adds leather-appointed upholstery, heated front seats, an eight-way power passenger seat, memory seat settings and Side Blind Zone Alert with Cross Traffic Alert starts at $43,285. Radar sensors monitor surroundings and alert the driver when a vehicle is in a blind spot or when a vehicle is approaching from either side while the Enclave is in reverse.


The available Premium Group includes all standard and leather group equipment, along with standard 19-inch chrome wheels, articulating headlamps, a Bose premium audio system, cooled front seats, power-folding side mirrors and a power tilting/telescoping steering column for a base price of $46,450.


Enclave offers 7- or 8-passenger seating choices with no added cost for either. Additional options vary among equipment groups, but all Enclave models can be equipped with all-wheel drive for $2,000, navigation for $795-$1,540, and a trailering package for $525.


On the outside, new LED daytime running lamps and LED-accented taillights add a modern look the Enclave's exterior, while new ambient interior lighting adds a cool Ice Blue glow to the cabin.


Dual-flow dampers at the front of the vehicle are among the Enclave's chassis refinement advancements. These new components provide a smoother ride and improved handling by controlling suspension dampening across a broader range of driving conditions.


Buick says the 2013 Enclave is available for ordering at your local dealer, with expected arrival sometime in the fourth quarter of this year.


Excellent information however I’d like to let you know that I think there is problem with your RSS feeds as they seem to not be working for me. May be just me but I thought overall I would cite it.

Thx for you note Maryann. We're working on fixing it and I will send you an email when it's running again later this week.
