2016 Buick EnclaveEnlarge Photo
Buick’s Enclave crossover is starting to get long in the tooth, with the latest version able to trace its roots back to the original launched in 2008. However, the big crossover remains as popular as ever with buyers, with General Motors Company [NYSE:GM] managing to move 62,300 of them last year in the U.S.—a sales record for the nameplate.
For the 2016 model year, Buick introduced a premium Tuscan Edition trim which we saw for the first time at the 2015 New York Auto Show. Now, Buick has confirmed that all 2016 Enclaves will feature 4G LTE connectivity and a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot that can be used simultaneously by up to seven devices. With purchase of the vehicle, a three-month/three-gigabyte data plan is offered at no cost.
The addition of 4G LTE capability to the Enclave means Buick’s entire 2016 lineup now features the ultra-fast connectivity technology.
Buyers of the 2016 Enclave have the choice of seven- or eight-seat configurations for the cabin, and all Enclaves come powered by a 3.6-liter V-6 good for 288 horsepower. A six-speed automatic is also standard, paired with either standard front-wheel drive or available all-wheel drive.
