Even with a midsize SUV, when you might easily overlook the engine, it is important to find a model that has enough power and is fun to drive. The 2021 Buick Enclave has a single engine available, which makes it easy for you to get the right amount of power for what you need. In many cases, specific engine options will be tied to certain trims, so you have to try to balance out everything you want. Here, however, you can choose the trim with the luxury and other features you want and know you are getting a great engine.
The Buick Enclave comes with a 3.6L V6 engine that delivers 310 hp and up to 266 lb-ft of torque. That might not be a massive amount of power if you compare it to something like a sports car or a heavy-duty pickup, but it is just right for a midsize SUV like this. You also get a 9-speed automatic transmission with this engine, which gives you a smooth ride that is quite responsive and a lot of fun to drive.
Like most SUVs, front-wheel drive standard on the Buick Enclave, but all-wheel drive is available for most trims – only the starting trim does not have it as an option. This is great because it gives you the freedom to choose the drivetrain that really works for what you need. Most drivers will find the standard front-wheel drive to be perfect, but if you want to take the Enclave to a campsite at the end of a dirt road, or you deal with bad weather a lot, then all-wheel drive can make things easier for you.
A midsize SUV is a great option for a lot of drivers because it gives you a spacious interior without going quite as big as some larger models. The 2021 Buick Enclave is a three-row SUV with seating for up to seven passengers across a rear bench seat, second-row captain’s chairs, and a pair of front seats. Front-row passengers get 41 inches of headroom and more than 41 inches of legroom, while people in the second row get nearly 40 inches of headroom and about 39 inches of legroom. Meanwhile, third-row passengers will get more than 37 inches of headroom and almost 34 inches of legroom.
You also get a lot of excellent cargo space inside the 2021 Buick Enclave, with terrific options that let you combine passengers and cargo as needed. You get more than 23 cu.ft. of cargo volume behind the third row of seats, with 58 cu.ft. of space behind the second row. If you do not have many passengers with you, then you can get more than 97 cu.ft. of total cargo volume behind the front seats of the Enclave. Whether you are going shopping, packing for a long road trip, or loading up with supplies for a week of camping, the Buick Enclave gives you a tremendous amount of space for everything you need.
When looking at a vehicle, it is easy to become enamored with its exterior, its engine, and similar features. While those things are certainly important, do not forget that most of your time spent with your vehicle will be inside while you are driving it. That is why it is important that you find a model with impressive interior luxury features like you will find in the 2021 Enclave. To get a good sense of what is available from Buick, we will take a look at the starting and the highest trims for the Enclave and what they have to offer.
Standard features on the starting trim for the 2021 Buick Enclave, the Preferred, include an 8-inch infotainment display with support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, active noise cancellation, and a 6-speaker sound system.

You also get a leather-wrapped steering wheel with mounted controls, a 4.2-inch driver information display, keyless open and start, tri-zone automatic climate control, and cruise control.
Looking at the highest trim of the Enclave, the Avenir, you get built-in navigation with the infotainment system, along with a 10-speaker Bose performance-enhanced premium sound system. The Avenir includes a wireless charging pad, perforated leather-appointed seating, and heated second-row seats. The leather-wrapped steering wheel in the Enclave Avenir features real wood accents and automatic heating, plus you get an 8-inch driver information display, rear climate controls, and a rear camera mirror.
