Although it’s considered a mid-size SUV, the Enclave is currently the largest Buick SUV on the market. It offers buyers more than just plentiful passenger and cargo space — it also represents solid value with its handsome exterior and a generous list of standard technological equipment. 
If you’re looking for a cozy, refined, family-friendly, and value-packed SUV, then the Enclave is a great option for you. Not only is it larger than any of the other Buick SUVs on the market, but it’s more affordable than its typical European rivals.

Meet the biggest Buick SUV: the Enclave

Boasting a total passenger volume of 157.3 cubic feet and a maximum cargo volume of  97.6 cubic feet (when the second and third rows are folded down) is the mid-size, three-row Buick Enclave — a stylish and family-friendly vehicle that feels luxurious, but is priced much more affordably.
The base-model Essence starts at just $44,095, while splurging on the well-equipped, top-of-the-line Avenir will cost you $56,445.
Regardless of trim level, every 2022 Enclave is powered by a 3.6-liter V-6 engine that generates 310 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque. This is paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission and your choice of front- or all-wheel drive, allowing you to go from 0 to 60 mph in a respectable 6.5 seconds.
This three-row SUV doesn’t have horrible fuel economy, either, clocking in with an EPA rating of 25 mpg on the highway — which is about as much as you can expect from a gas-powered vehicle of its size.
Inside, you’ll enjoy plenty of space amidst three comfortable rows of seats. Wood trim helps the space feel a bit more elevated, as does the optional panoramic moonroof. If moving cargo is your main concern, rest assured that you can fit up to 38 carry-on suitcases with the third row of seats folded down — a feat that makes the Enclave a leader in its class.
An 8-inch IntelliLink touchscreen infotainment system is standard, offering sharp graphics and user-friendly controls. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are both standard, as well as an onboard Wi-Fi hotspot. The best feature? No one will have to argue over USB charging ports, as they’re available in all three rows!

Cargo and towing

If you own an SUV, you’re probably not solely concerned with how many people you can fit — you’re probably also concerned about moving around some cargo. Fortunately, the Enclave doesn’t disappoint. Just take a look at the dimensions:
  • Cargo volume behind first row: 97.4 cubic feet
  • Cargo volume behind second row: 57.7 cubic feet
  • Cargo volume behind third row:23.6 cubic feet
We have to admit, this amount of space is pretty impressive, beating out many other mid-size SUVs. With the third row folded, you’ll have absolutely no problem fitting in your family and all of your luggage — the perfect vehicle for a quick trip to the airport, or a much longer road trip. 
If you find yourself needing to pull something behind your vehicle, the Enclave has a towing capacity of 5,000 lbs. While this doesn’t make it the most powerful SUV in its class, it does make it equipped for handling a trailer or camper hookup.
