In production since 2007, the Enclave is slated to receive a second generation in 2017 for the 2018 model year. Until that moment comes, the General Motors brand is trying our patience with this thing - a special edition model of the luxurious crossover.
The latest model in the Sport Touring Edition lineup features an expressive and athletic exterior design. Elements such as the Satin Black Ice waterfall grille and the 20-inch chrome wheels with Satin Black Ice accents differentiate the Sport Touring from the standard version of the popular mid-size crossover SUV. “The Sport Touring Edition is a great update for our flagship crossover SUV as the Buick family continues to grow this year,” declared Duncan Aldred, the vice president of the Buick brand.

Available in three colors (White Frost Tricoat, Crimson Red Metallic, and Ebony Twilight Metallic), the Enclave Sport Touring Edition is offered in two specifications: Leather Group (1SL) and Premium Group (1SN). In terms of standard goodies, this particular Enclave comes with all the equipment you could wish for in such a car.

The list starts with wood trim on the heated steering wheel and continues with 4G LTE connectivity and built-in Wi-Fi hotspot. Things like the power liftgate, rear parking sensors and rear-vision camera with dynamic guidelines, tri-zone automatic climate control, Buick IntelliLink touchscreen infotainment system, and ice-blue LED ambient lighting around the instrument panels are also included on the no-cost options list.

As far as the oily bits are concerned, a 3.6-liter naturally aspirated V6 with 288 horsepower motivates this thing, sending power to the wheels via a 6-speed automatic transmission. Pricing hasn’t been announced at the time of writing, but this special edition of the Enclave shouldn’t exceed $50,000 in front-wheel-drive and Leather Group guise. If that's too much money, the Buick Envision should be a great alternative.
