2013 Buick Enclave crossover starts at $39,270, not affordable anymore


With the new look in the 2013 Buick Enclave crossover, GM is also bumping up the price as well. The 2013 Buick Enclave starts at $39,270 (including destination charges), and comes with a number of additional features that GM justified for the price hike from the 2012 model at $36,500.

New additional features to freshen up the 2013 Buick Enclave crossover include: seven-inch Color Touch radio with IntelliLink, high-intensity discharge headlamps, Rear Parking Assist, a Rear Vision Camera, remote start, a power liftgate and other luxury features all as standard equipment.

In addition to the justified price increase, the 2013 Buick Enclave crossover also comes with dual-flow dampers at the front and new components provide a smoother ride and improved handling by controlling suspension dampening for a smoother ride.

“The original Enclave was a catalyst for the Buick, defining the brand’s high standards of design and refinement,” said Tony DiSalle, vice president of Buick Marketing. “The new 2013 model takes another step forward with a bolder look and advanced technologies.”

The 2013 Buick Enclave crossover offers in 7- or 8-passenger seating choices with no added cost.  To add to the bottom line, there are additional options available on specific trims, but all Enclave models can be equipped with all-wheel drive ($2,000), navigation ($$795-1,540) and a trailering package ($525).

For a total decked out 2013 Buick Enclave crossover, the available Premium Group includes all standard and leather group equipment, along with standard 19-inch chrome clad wheels, articulating headlamps, a Bose premium audio system, cooled front seats, power-folding side mirrors and a power tilting/telescoping steering column.  This total base price is about $46,450.  As you can see, the 2013 Buick Enclave crossover can get expensive quickly.
