Buick has priced the refreshed 2013 Enclave at $39,270, which includes an $825 destination charge. The price for the updated three-row luxury crossover, which offers updated styling, more standard equipment, added safety technology, and IntelliLink infotainment connectivity system, represents a $2,770 increase compared to the outgoing 2012 model.
The 2013 Enclave will offer three different equipment groups, with standard equipment consisting of a seven-inch Color Touch Radio with IntelliLink, high-intensity discharge headlamps, Rear Park Assist, Rear Vision Camera, remote start, power liftgate, new LED daytime running lamps and LED-accented tail lights, as well as the elegant Ice Blue ambient cabin lighting. In addition, all 2013 Enclaves will have the industry’s first front center airbag that’s designed to protect drivers and front passengers in far-side impact crashes.
Step up to the $43,825 Leather Group and you get a leather-appointed interior, heated front seats, an eight-way power passenger seat, memory seat settings and Side Blind Zone Alert with Cross Traffic Alert. The top-of-the-line Premium Group starts at $46,450 and contains all equipment from the Leather Group while adding standard 19-inch chrome clad wheels, articulating headlamps, a Bose premium audio system, cooled front seats, power-folding side mirrors and a power tilting/telescoping steering column.
Standalone options include all-wheel drive for $2,000, navigation for $795-1,540, and a $545 trailering package. Buyers will be able to configure their Enclave to seat either seven or eight passengers for no addition cost for either configuration.
The GM Authority Take
The Enclave has earned the title of the top-selling three-row luxury crossover in the U.S. market — and we see no reason for it to lose this title in the future given these much-welcome updates for the 2013 model. In addition, we applaud Buick‘s decision to move the Enclave upmarket. Seeing that the Tri-Shield is a newfound luxury brand of softs, it only makes sense to continue to widen the gap between the Chevy Traverse and GMC Acadia, and the Enclave.
