The 2012 Enclave was crafted to never blend in—to stand far apart and catch attention. Curves sweep from one end to the other. Up front, wraparound high-intensity discharge xenon headlamps provide a brighter light than halogen to help you see road signs better. From there, the signature waterfall grille, chrome portholes, and sculpted lines flow undisturbed into three-dimensional, multi lens taillamps.
From the onset, we set our minds to making Enclave the finest luxury crossover out there. Inside, we started with three rows of first-class seating. Then we built in features that make your drive both exhilarating and comfortable. Enjoy simple comforts like available leather seating surfaces, a genuine mahogany-inlaid steering wheel, and plenty of legroom.
TRI-ZONE CLIMATE CONTROLS
Enclave goes out of its way to make sure everyone is comfortable with climate controls from end to end. Adjust the temperature easily with tri-zone automatic controls for driver, and right-front passenger, as well as second row passenger controls.
SEATING FOR SEVEN OR EIGHT
Not only does Enclave offer first-class seating for up to eight, we took the design even further to make life a little easier. Our SmartSlide technology gives you plenty of room to access the third row. And moving the second row is a job that requires just one free hand.
BUICK-EXCLUSIVE QUIETTUNING TECHNOLOGY
Enjoy only the sounds you want to hear with special noise blocking technology. Enclave uses premium triple door seals and an acoustic-laminated windshield to dramatically lessen wind, traffic, and city noise.
When it comes to performance, Enclave is two parts brilliance. The 6-speed transmission works seamlessly with the 288-hp 3.6 V6 engine with direct injection and Variable Valve Timing. Together they maximize performance and efficiency to deliver an unparalleled ride.
ACTIVE INTELLIGENT AWD
The available Intelligent AWD system in this luxury crossover is always one step ahead. Constantly monitoring the traction of all four wheels, it kicks in automatically in the toughest road conditions. No button or levers. Just improved traction and handling on all road surfaces, especially on slippery or snow-covered surfaces.
3.6L V6 VVT WITH DIRECT INJECTION, 288 HP AND 270-LB. FT. OF TORQUE
Get power when you need it most with Enclave’s 3.6L V6 VVT with Direct Injection Engine. With 288 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque, Enclave handles it all.
STABILITRAK® WITH TRACTION CONTROL
Form a bond with the road. Both the StabiliTrak and full-time traction control systems constantly monitor Enclave to help retain traction and maintain the driver’s intended steering path for optimal direction control.
The finest luxury crossover wouldn’t be complete without the latest technologies. And the Enclave has them all. From hands-free calling to access to real-time road conditions, and a touch-screen DVD navigation system, everything is within reach.
The 2012 Enclave is proof that bigger SUV doesn’t have to spell trouble at the pump. In fact, this finely-tuned machine uses an intricate powertrain system to achieve better highway fuel economy than most other eight-passenger crossovers — an EPA-estimated 24 MPG hwy for the FWD model.
Safety was at the core of the thinking and design of the 2012 Enclave. Its wide track, long wheelbase, and low ride height make it a strong structure to drive. Add in extras like OnStar Automatic Crash Response8 and rearview camera system, and you have a crossover that makes peace of mind an art. These advancements and more have earned the 2011 Buick Enclave a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score for safety4 from the NHSTA.
FOUR-WHEEL ANTILOCK DISC BRAKES (ABS)
Enjoy the confidence of knowing when you hit the brakes, your Enclave will respond — quickly. Buick’s ABS system gives you the reins and reacts instantly in adverse weather conditions and emergency braking.
ONSTAR® WITH SIX MONTHS DIRECTIONS & CONNECTIONS® PLAN(8)
Enclave comes complete with advanced safety technology like OnStar Automatic Crash Response and six months of the Directions & Connections Plan. Whether you’re lost or involved in a crash, your Enclave will respond right away.
