2014 Buick Enclave review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2014 Buick Enclave?

The 2014 Buick Enclave is a large three-row SUV that competes with the Acura MDX, Lexus RX 350, Infiniti JX, Lincoln MKT and Volvo XC90. It's offered in Convenience, Leather and Premium trim levels, all of which can be had with either front- or all-wheel drive.

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.

Stay Away

Bought a 2014 with 113,000 miles and after owning it for almost 2 years the engine blew up. We maintained since we bought it but the engines on these cars suck. Don’t buy!!! With that being said, I loved the Buick.

Yes! I will eventually drive this gem!

I can't write too much about this vehicle. The shop has had it longer than me. There seems to be an "out of balance" kind of shake when the vehicle reaches about 25 MPH. I have no doubt that the service team will find and correct the problem. I purchased this vehicle based on the fact that my mother had a Somerset and lent it to me for a week. That car was very comfortable and I knew this Enclave would live up to those standards. The SUV comfort was off the charts compared to that Somerset. For the short time I have driven it, I was pleased. I hope the shop finds the problem soon. I miss the comfort

Utter piece of Junk

Have had AC problems with the car since 20,000 miles. Had it in 3 times for repair while under warranty. Front motor mount needs to be replaced, OX sensors need to be replaced, rear evaporator needs to be replaced all conveniently after 50,000 mile warranty. One owner 62,000 miles on it. Will never purchase another GM product again.
