Detroit MI Automaker GM's Enclave Gets Props from Oakland Press

Detroit MI automaker General Motors should be proud of what it has designed as the Buick Enclave receives stellar reviews from the Oakland Press.

Online PR News – 21-October-2010 – – DETROIT, M.I. – Detroit MI has enjoyed many well-designed classic and sleek vehicles from its hometown automaker General Motors; and according to the Oakland Press, GM has done it again.

Based in Pontiac, Mich., Oakland Press is excited about the Buick Enclave and its luxurious exterior and interior design. This elegant mid-sized SUV rivals other top luxury models such as the Lexus LX from Japan or the Mercedes M-Class from Germany.

Detroit MI prospective buyers will still enjoy the Buick trademark grille and will have the option to add bigger 20-inch chrome-clad wheels, which Oakland Press says is an option it would definitely pay extra for.

This SUV comes standard with a 3.6 Liter 288 horsepower V-6 engine and 6-speed automatic transmission with an optional all-wheel drive. This Detroit MI vehicle doesn’t disappoint with enough power to tow a 4,500-pound trailer while also being large enough to bring a family of seven, with the standard third-row split bench seat, along with it. Other great features for the family include a power up and down cargo gate with a cargo area that will hold 18.9 cubic feet with the rear bench seat unused. Also, when the rear seat is folded down, another 535 cubic feet is added.

Oakland Press believes that the most important part of any vehicle is the cabin, and it praises the Buick Enclave for having a very stylish and elegant interior space. The materials used and the placement of the different controls were executed efficiently and are attractive-looking as well.

Other great options for the Buick Enclave include a backup camera, power sunroof with the second-row skylight, a second-row console, and an upgraded audio system with navigation and a DVD player that includes rear seat entertainment. As most Detroit MI GM vehicles, the Buick Enclave enjoys the safety and reassurance of OnStar.

All in all, Oakland Press is definitely a fan of GM’s Buick Enclave and feels that anyone looking for an SUV should consider staying with a home brand before moving on to some other foreign vehicle.
