Buick has officially unveiled the revised 2013 Enclave, which will debut in New York this week. The 2013 Enclave gets styling updates, new safety technologies, in-vehicle connectivity and a more refined driving experience.
The Enclave’s exterior has been updated with a new front fascia with LED daytime running lights, new headlights, and a revised hood and grille. The rear of the 2013 Enclave gets updated LED taillights and revised fascia with integrated exhaust outlets. The 2013 Enclave also rides on new 19-inch and 20-inch wheels.
The 2013 Enclave also gets updates to the interior like new ice blue LED ambient lighting, a new center stack and updated materials. The 2013 Enclave is also going to offer the industry’s first front center airbag, which is standard on all Enclave models. The front center airbag was created to help protect drivers and front passengers in far-side impact crashes. It deploys from the inboard side of the driver’s seat and positions itself between the driver and front passenger.
GM’s engineers also improved the 2013 Enclave’s driving experience with revised front and rear dampers. In the front suspension, new dual-flow dampers and rebound springs are used to reduce the jarring feel of bumps, as well as provide a quieter and smoother ride. In the rear, new low-velocity control shocks help reduce road inputs that could be felt inside the passenger compartment. The Enclave’s six-speed automatic has also been revised to improve the shift feel.
