The 2013 Buick Enclave Obtained Modest Midcycle Updates

When the 2013 Buick Enclave made its official debut at the 2012 New York Auto Show, a lot of car buyers and experts have noticed that the vehicle has obtained some modest yet appropriate midcycle updates. Most of the car experts that were present during the event were convinced that the Enclave really deserve such updates given the fact that most of its closest competitors are currently upgrading their own models to cope with the competition on the segment.

One of the most significant updates that were seen on the 2013 Buick Enclave was mainly implemented on the vehicle’s exterior design. The latest version of the Enclave has received a major overhaul in its front end. As part of the overhaul, Buick engineers and vehicle developers have installed a new black-chrome grille on the vehicle to make this look more attractive and upscale. Aside from that, the Enclave has also received a new set of xenon HID head lights with built-in translucent blue rings. The new set of headlamps was further complimented by a new set of LED daytime running lights.

Aside from the changes on the vehicle’s front end, the company‚Äôs personnel who were tasked to update the 2013 Buick Enclave have also revised the car’s rear portion. Due to the changes that were done, the 2013 Buick Enclave received a new rear fascia. Since the new rear fascia is equipped with integrated exhaust outlets that are framed in chrome and new set of LED taillamps, these items have further improved the vehicle’s rear appearance.

The modest midcycle updates that were implemented on the 2013 Buick Enclave has also increased the number of standard items that are offered on the vehicle. Due to these updates, the cabin of the latest version of the Enclave is now equipped with an ice-blue LED ambient lighting that makes the dash look more upscale and elegant. In addition to this, the Enclave has obtained a newly-developed center stack that holds the LCD touchscreen display of the IntelliLink system and the tri-zone climate control system.

In order to further improve the vehicle’s safety, Buick just like Chevrolet and GMC has installed a new front center airbag on the 2013 Buick Enclave. This airbag was designed to help the front seat occupants from incurring possible injuries when the Enclave encounters a frontal collision. Finally, Buick’s engineers have also revised the front and rear dampers of the vehicle to further improve the ride quality that the 2013 Buick Enclave provides.
