Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2019 Buick Enclave?

The 2019 Enclave is a premium three-row SUV with room for up to seven occupants. It has a 310-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 engine that works with a nine-speed automatic transmission. Both front- and all-wheel-drive versions are available. Competitors include the Acura MDX and Infiniti QX60.

What's New on the 2019 Buick Enclave?

The Enclave is now available in a front-wheel-drive Preferred trim level, and an automatic heated steering wheel is standard on the Premium and Avenir trims.

How Does the 2019 Buick Enclave Compare to Other Three-row SUVs?

Buick tries to stand out by being more premium than mainstream SUVs but without the prices of high-end luxury brands. Its interior space is a match for any competitor in the class. Third-row space, seating position and overall comfort win out over the Acura MDX and Infiniti QX60.

What Features in the 2019 Buick Enclave Are Most Important?

Second-row SmartSlide seats give easy access to the third row, and a rear-seat reminder is designed to help you avoid forgetting anything in the backseat. An available rear camera mirror and a 360-degree camera system ensure optimal visibility, while a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hot spot comes standard to keep you connected on the road (data trial included).

Should I Buy the 2019 Buick Enclave?

If you’re a big family with a lot of cargo to haul but are willing to miss some of the luxury that comes with a high-end SUV, the Enclave might be a good fit. If you’re looking for an especially elegant design, another luxury SUV may be more appealing.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
