2013 Buick Enclave Breaks Cover before Official New York Debut

By Trevor Dorchies | April 04, 2012
Buick has experienced somewhat of a renaissance over the past few years thanks in large part to a crop of fresh vehicles like the full-size crossover Buick Enclave, which debuted in 2007. The 2013 Buick Enclave has been refreshed as the Detroit-based automaker continues to carry that momentum forward. With details breaking cover shortly before its official unveiling at the 2012 New York International Show, Buick has decided to play it safe with its luxurious family hauler. But that's not to say Buick's slacked off. Rather, the automaker has given the 2013 Enclave a number of new features, including updated styling to match the rest of Buick's current lineup and plenty of new technology. The 2013 Buick Enclave's exterior styling sees modest tweaks with its previous tear-drop headlights being scrapped in favor of a new narrower design with a revised HID headlight setup. The new headlights include Buick's signature blue rings that outline the lamp itself. A new waterfall grille with a black chrome finish has also been added for the 2013 Buick Enclave. Under the redone sheetmetal, the Buick's the stalwart 3.6-liter V-6 engine that has been under-hood since 2007 continues its service.  The front MacPherson strut-suspension welcomes new dual-flow dampers and rebound springs. All that really means is that the 2013 Buick Enclave's ride will be smoother and quieter than the one it replaces.
The 2013 Buick Enclave will hit showrooms this fall. To find out more about the refreshed 2013 Buick Enclave, including a details and photos, check out our 2012 New York International Auto Show page. Source: Buick
