Our First Ride with the 2020 Buick Enclave
The 2020 Enclave is a crossover SUV from Buick that makes an ideal purchase for those who are looking for a near-luxury cabin feel that is packed in a price that is affordable.
In other words, Buick has targeted thelarge families who are looking for an upmarket three row crossover SUVs, confessed a seller at the Vineland Buick dealer showroom. But at the same time, it also hits hard, the driving enthusiasts by offering all-wheel drive system and latest safety options which looks lucrative for a large section of buyers. But what comes as a promise from Buick is its consistently smooth ride quality and all this packed in an awesome exterior styling.
Improvements for the 2020 Year Edition
If you are looking for the changes made to the Enclave series this year, there won’t be many as there was already a redesign done last year, except that it introduces a new Sport Touring styling package that enhances the overall appearance of the vehicle when improvised, while the interior offers available massaging front seats. The 2020 year sees the same Preferred, Essence, Premium, and Avenir trims that continue from the previous year lineups.
Inside Space and Comfort
The cabin inside the 2020 Enclave we chose can boast of laying a space thoughtfully arranged, that tucks in a comfort that isn’t very easy to find these days. The well-wrought interior decked in warm earth colored tones on most trims wore an ethnic look with its rich leather upholstery that comes as standard on Essence trims as well as on the still higher trims.
Ease of getting in and out of the car is yet another advantage of the 2020 Enclave that kept big door openings for the first and second rows, though the third row stays spacious enough to accommodate three adults without a struggle.
Options for Power and Transmission
To power the 2020 Enclave series, Buick has selected a 310-horsepower making 3.6-liter V-6 engine with eithera front wheel drive configuration or an all four wheel drivetrain after pairing the engine with a smooth shifting slick 9-speed automatic transmission. On the range topping Premium and Avenir trims the all-wheel-drive system gets more refined with a twin-clutch rear differential in comparison to the systems that are loaded under the hoods of other trim levels. Following the current trend of crossovers, even Buick preferred to offer on the base trim models of 2020 Enclave the standard option to drive only with the front-wheels.
Our First Ride
At a popular showroom of a famous Buick dealer near Vineland, we booked a test drive with the 2020 Buick Enclave that instigated us to drive it home on the very same evening. Our first ride with the 2020 Buick Enclave became memorable for the fun and excitement it offered on the first few minutes itself. The ride was firm all through the way, while handling all the challenges that were thrown to it by the difficult route we drove it through. Even on the roughly laid pavements, the 2020 Enclave moved royally with confidence. At this point we also felt like appreciating the high end sound deadening technology adopted by the manufacturer that maintained a serene silence inside the cabin without any interruption. `
