Enclave in the Market

The Enclave arrives at the right time, with its focus on getting relatively good fuel economy without sacrificing the interior space that makes full-size SUVs appealing. The only problem? There are a slew of other new three-row crossovers — like the CX-9 and Veracruz — that the Enclave must contend with, in addition to quality luxury competitors like Acura's MDX.

What this means is that it's not going to be easy for the Enclave to win over shoppers, but it is well-positioned to try. The key will be convincing younger consumers to stop by a Buick dealership for a test drive — which may actually be the greatest challenge.
