Buick Adds Enclave to Sport Touring Edition Lineup


Buick today unveiled its 2017 Enclave Sport Touring Edition — the latest addition to the brand’s design-focused Sport Touring Edition vehicles — featuring a black grille and 20-inch chrome-clad wheels with black accents. The vehicle goes on sale in the summer.

“The Sport Touring Edition is a great update for our flagship crossover SUV as the Buick family continues to grow this year,” says Duncan Aldred, vice president of global Buick.

Aldred says the new Buick Enclave Sport Touring Edition will be on display at the 2016 New York International Auto Show, which opens to the public March 25. The mid-size SUV is available in leather and premium trims, and will be offered in white, red, and metallic black.

He says additional standard features include a heated, wood-trimmed steering wheel; blue LED ambient lighting around the instrument panel; heated front seats, 4G LTE connectivity with a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot; and rear park assist, among others.

The new Enclave edition joins the 2016 LaCrosse, Regal, and Verano Sport Touring Edition sedans models. The vehicles include new exterior designs such as 18-inch wheels and a rear spoiler.

Aldred says since Enclave’s introduction in 2007, SUVs have jumped from 31 percent of Buick brand sales to 61 percent in 2015. The Envision compact SUV joins Buick’s SUV lineup in North America this summer.
