The Enclave's navigation option, with its touch screen LCD, is very solid.

The optional navigation system absorbs most audio functions, but doesn't complicate their use.
With a base price in the high-$30,000 range, the Buick Enclave isn't inexpensive. At that price it does include a fair amount of luxury and infotainment content--but it's not difficult to push the family wagon's pricetag past $50,000.
Buick's done away with trim levels, so instead of opting for an Enclave CXL or CX, it's simply a matter of ordering options on the single model. All versions include standard power windows, locks, and mirrors; cruise control; air conditioning; satellite radio; an AM/FM/CD player; and Bluetooth with audio streaming.
A rearview camera system, a USB port, HD Radio, and voice recognition are also standard. A navigation system is a relatively inexpensive option, as is a ten-speaker Bose sound upgrade.IntelliLink is the big news for some shoppers, as it brings the Enclave's interior up to the leading edge in connectivity. IntelliLink ties smartphones into the Enclave's audio and Bluetooth controls, through a relatively simple interface (as we've found in other models). Once a phone is connected, the Enclave has well-integrated Bluetooth hands-free calling and audio streaming functionality, and access to apps for Pandora and Stitcher audio. This year, it gains Apple's Siri EyesFree voice search and the ability to read out text messages.
Major options include a navigation systemand remote start, along with 19- and 20-inch wheels, a head-up display (HUD), heated and cooled front seats, and a rear-seat DVD entertainment system.
Luxury touches and a user-friendly infotainment system are some of the pricey Enclave's strengths.
