Buick Exports Newest Enclave to China


DETROIT — Buick will begin exporting the latest edition of its award-winning Enclave luxury crossover to China.

Redesigned for 2013, the Enclave is the U.S. industry’s best-selling three-row luxury crossover, and features fresh styling, new safety technologies, in-vehicle connectivity, and a more refined driving experience, according to GM officials.

New safety features include available camera-based Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning, along with a front center side air bag system that helps protect drivers and front passengers in far-side impact crashes.

Enclave owners in the U.S. consistently list things like “overall quality of vehicle,” “ride comfort” and “overall exterior styling” as their top reasons for purchase, according to company officials.

Last year, the luxury crossover achieved its best U.S. retail sales year ever, growing 7 percent, company officials said while i was also Buick’s top-selling U.S. retail vehicle, with 54,330 deliveries.

The previous generation Enclave was exported to China from 2008 to 2013, and sold over 25,000 units.
