2021 Buick Enclave Makes US News’ List of Most Comfy SUVs
Let’s face it — comfort is a major priority when you are shopping for an SUV. Thanks to their spacious cabins, strong towing power, and smooth performance, SUVs are ideal for road trips and family travel. And if you’re going to spend hours on the road, it had better be in a comfortable cabin that overflows with premium materials and tech.
“We’ve pored over our rankings to find a variety of SUVs from multiple classes and price points that offer a solid combination of interior space, comfort, and quality,” according to U.S. News & World Report writer Steven Loveday.
The 2021 Buick Enclave earned the number six spot on the list thanks to its spacious seating, maximum cargo space of 97.6 cubic feet, and powerful 3.6-liter V6 engine. That motor is paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission that generates 310 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque. The Enclave also received praise for its comfort amenities including heated front seats and tri-zone automatic climate control. Accessing the cargo is easier with the hands-free power liftgate while connectivity is seamless with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration.
When properly equipped, the 2021 Enclave can tow 5,000 pounds and returns EPA-estimated fuel-efficiency ratings of 18 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway. The 2021 Enclave offers a choice of four trim levels — Preferred, Essence, Premium, and Avenir.
