Buick Enclave Engine Specs & Performance Features

Under the hood, all new Buick Enclave trim levels look basically the same except for the baseline Preferred trim which offers all-wheel drive as an option. With this in mind, let’s take a closer look at the powertrain that makes everything possible:

3.6L V6 Engine paired with a 9-speed Automatic Transmission

  • 310 hp / 266 lb-ft of torque
  • 18 mpg city / 26 mpg highway (FWD)
  • 17 mpg city / 25 mpg highway (AWD)

Even with this power and efficiency, the Buick Enclave refuses to compromise ride quality. With the innovative five-link rear suspension system, you can rest assured that you’re getting a smoother, quieter, more comfortable ride no matter the conditions.

Also, the available intelligent AWD system features an auto-activating twin-clutch, ensuring that power always reaches the wheels where it’s most needed.

Buick Enclave Cargo Space

Though this model has the ability to tow up to 5,000 pounds, it doesn’t mean you have to have the model better equipped to be able to bring everything along. The Buick Enclave 3-row SUV is built with a spacious cargo area and fold-down rear seats for access to nearly 100 cubic feet of cargo space. Here are the dimensions:

  • Cargo Capacity Behind Third Row: 23.6 cubic feet
