NEW FOR 2015:
-Standard heated steering wheel on Leather and Premium trims
-New exterior colours, dark plum interior colour added
Buick’s largest vehicle gets very minor trim updates for 2015, the most tangible of them being the addition of a standard heated steering wheel.
As one of a set of mechanical triplets that includes the Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia, the Enclave shares with them a 3.6L V6 that makes 288 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard, while all-wheel drive is optional.
Standard equipment includes a driver’s inboard airbag (plus the usual complement, for a total of seven airbags), side blind spot alert, power liftgate, heated side mirrors with integrated turn signal repeaters, rear park assist, backup camera, chrome roof side rails, 19-inch wheels, tri-zone automatic climate control, Xenon headlights, Bluetooth, leather- and wood-trimmed heated steering wheel, power windows with driver express up/down and front and rear passenger express-down, heated eight-way power front seats, perforated leather seats, six-speaker stereo, IntelliLink with colour touchscreen interface, satellite radio and three USB ports (include two charge-only ports in the rear of the centre console).
The move up to Premium trim adds power-folding side mirrors with driver’s side auto-dimming, adaptive (steerable) headlights, power steering column adjustment, ventilated driver’s seats, 10-speaker stereo, and navigation.
