2013 Buick Enclave Priced From $39,270

Follow Richard

The popular, three-row SUV known as the Buick Enclave received a makeover for the 2013 model year -- and so did its pricing.

The Enclave now starts at $39,270, which is a bit higher than the 2012 model's current sticker price of $36,500. Of course, as Bengt Halvorson points out in his review of the 2013 model, the Enclave's upgrades help justify the heftier price. Among other things, the SUV has been restyled inside and out; it carries a brand-new front center airbag for increased safety in side-impact collisions; and the Enclave's ride may be smoother and more responsive (though only a test drive will confirm that).

So, what do you get for $39,270? For starters, there's a seven-inch Color Touch radio with IntelliLink on the center stack, and nifty luxury features like remote starting, a power liftgate, a rear-vision camera, and Rear Parking Assist.

Enclave owners will also enjoy the new ambient lighting on the interior, which sheds "Ice Blue" on all seven or eight passengers. Fellow drivers will appreciate the Enclave's new LED daytime running lamps, as well as the LED accents on the taillights. 

If that's not schmancy enough for you, Buick offers a Leather Group upgrade. Starting at $43,285, this trim level offers heated front seats, memory seat settings, and, of course, leather upholstery. There are also tech improvements at this level, including a blind-spot alert system and one that warns drivers of oncoming traffic when they're in reverse (which could come in handy when backing out of parking spots).

Need more? Try the Premium Group, which offers all of the above, plus a few extras. On the outside, there are articulating headlamps, power-folding side mirrors, and 19" chrome wheels. Inside, you'll find cooled front seats, a Bose audio system, and power tilting/telescoping steering column. Of course, nothing "Premium" comes cheap: this trim level will set you back $46,450.

Keep in mind, those are base prices. There are other add-ons that could edge the Enclave's price a bit higher -- add-ons like a navigation system (priced from $795 to $1,540), all-wheel drive ($2,000), and for the hauler, a trailering kit ($525).

Buick hasn't confirmed an on-sale date for the 2013 Enclave, but we expect to see it in showrooms this fall.

  1. A 7.5% increase seems like more than a bit. Wages and inflation didn't go up that much.

    Bad stuff?

  2. A "bit" ?? Man, those Car Connection writing jobs must pay great if a $2770.00 price increase for some "fluff" is a "bit". The Enclave is still overweight at 5000 lbs. and underpowered and, as a result, the tranny constantly "hunts" through the gears due to lack of torque to move that mass. At least they solved the timing chain stretch problems that plague the 2008 models of the Lambda platform.
