What's New on the 2014 Buick Enclave?
For 2014, the Buick Enclave can be equipped with forward collision alert and lane departure warning systems. SiriusXM tune select and text-to-voice are standard with the IntelliLink multimedia system, and the back of the center console now features two USB ports for second-row mobile device charging.
How Does the 2014 Buick Enclave Compare to Other Three-Row SUVs?
The Acura MDX and Infiniti JX both have more luxurious interiors, but the Enclave has a more spacious third row. The Buick also surpasses those models in maximum cargo space and has the lowest starting price.
What Features in the 2014 Buick Enclave Are Most Important?
The 2014 Buick Enclave is powered by a 288-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 engine that's paired with a six-speed automatic transmission and either front- or all-wheel drive. It offers 4,500 pounds of towing capacity.
Significant standard features include high-intensity-discharge headlights, LED taillights, LED daytime running lights, 18-inch aluminum wheels, remote start, an IntelliLink touchscreen multimedia system, tri-zone climate control and a power liftgate. Available features include 19- or 20-inch aluminum wheels, a navigation system, Bose premium stereo, and heated and cooled front seats.
The Enclave includes antilock brakes, an electronic stability system and side impact airbags for the front seats, along with a unique airbag between the front seats. In addition, all three rows have side curtain airbags. A backup camera and rear parking sensors are also standard, and blind spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, forward collision alert and lane departure warning can be added.
Should I Buy the 2014 Buick Enclave?
If you're looking for a three-row SUV with plenty of space, an even suspension and plenty of towing capacity, the 2014 Buick Enclave is a strong choice. It also has easy-to-use controls and a standard IntelliLink multimedia system. However, its turning radius is large, and if you're looking for a true luxury SUV, there are better options. The third row may feel cramped for some, but it's larger than its competitors.
