Car video reviews:

Body style: SUV (Sports Utility Vehicle)
Segment: Medium SUV

The Enclave was well known for its ability to perfectly meld the attributes of a minivan and a truck-based SUV.

The crossover SUV was a good choice for larger families, offering a comfortable ride and a massive cargo capacity.

The luxurious crossover rode on a unibody platform, also shared with the Chevrolet Traverse and the GMC Acadia.

For 2012, the Enclave was offered in four trim levels.

The base model was well equipped with 19-inch alloys, a power liftgate, tri-zone automatic control, bi-xenon headlights and heated outside mirrors. The standard configuration could accommodate up to 7 people, while the optional second-row bench seat was available at no additional costs, increasing the capacity to 8 people.

The upper trim levels added a remote starting, a rear-view camera with rear parking assist, leather upholstery with heated power front seats - the latter included with the Leather Group trim level.

The top of the range, the Premium Group featured 19-inch chrome wheels, adaptive xenon headlights, heated and ventilated front seats and a premium 10-speaker Bose sound system.

Standalone options available included 20-inch chrome alloys, a sunroof, a rear-seat entertainment system and a navigation system.

The Enclave was available with a front-wheel-drive or an all-wheel-drive system. The luxurious crossover ran on a 3.6-liter V6 engine that cranked out 288 hp. The powerplant was mated with a 6-speed automatic transmission.

Safety wise, the Enclave was equipped with fron-seat side airbags and full-legth side curtain airbags that were standard.
