Buick Enclave

I saw this mentioned in the USA thread by a poster on the link. I hadn't seen it before and had we been looking for a SUV before buying the KIA, this would have been a vehicle to look at for sure. Check this puppy out! This is really nice for a family SUV!

Saw one on the road the other day, for the first time. Looks just as good in person/action as in pics.

Friend that was with me (who likes BMW, Lexus, Infiniti, Mercedes but drives a '99 Buick Regal) said it 'looks like a Lexus or Infiniti'. Then he corrected himself and said 'Actually, it looks better than a Lexus or Infiniti'.

Hopefully it can continue to get that kind of reaction from others.

The exterior is really nice....BUT, they seriously outdid themselves with the interior! I don't like bland interiors. My 4th Gens is kinda bland and hasn't been redone since the late 90's. Seeing an updated interior like this gets me hyped up to see what kind of production interior GM will have up their sleeves for the 5th Gen. This interior is simply awesome!

NEGATIVE on the Murano!!! Obviously opinion varies from person to person but... The Nissan Murano looks killa from the outside. Get in and there's no room. That was at least my take. There's no trunk room, not enough room for the second row, and there was for sure not enough room for the 6'2" driver. Again, I like the looks of the Murano, but I would NEVER buy one.

I have heard nothing but good reviews on the Enclave. The only possible "issue" was power. (may be a little underpowered)

I like it. Alot! Way to go GM.

Unhappy

FYI GM is planning on producing a chevrolet version of this new crossover. when it comes out they are planning on killing off the Trailblazer, the Envoy, the Buick Rainer, and POSSIBLY the Hummer H3 (good ridance ). this is a bummer as my brother has a Trailblazer and it is one of the nicest SUVs on the market that has a full frame under it, and that smooth as silk 300hp DOHC inline 6 .

I think you are refering to the GMC Arcadia, its said to be the first of GM's Crossovers. Never been in one, but they seem nice.

I don't see these snubbing out any Trailblazer, Envoy, or H3 though.

Sorry Kyle, that's why these latest cross-overs were created....so Chevy/GMC/Buick could drop the Trailblazer, Envoy, and Rainier. As many of them as I see on the road, GM said the Trailblazer/Envoy/Rainier triplets weren't selling enough, so they had to do something. A complete redesign was slated for the 2011, but then the cross-overs hit the autoshow circuit. They were such a hit that GM decided to start building them and phase out the current triplets.

Chevy needs to go ahead and make their version of the cross-over, but it should be the sportier one....more power, sportier suspension (I'm not saying Corvette like or anything, more like Trailblazer SS)....it at least needs to be an upgrade option on the Chevy version.

Silverado,
thats interesting, good info.
I thought the Arcadia was a little too small to take over the Envoy and yes, they are all over. Not sure how they are not selling. haha.

thanks

So Long Trailblazer...it's been a good run, buddy. (trumpet plays)



Though, people still need SUV's, there will surely be some of them still around. "those" guys still need their Suburbans, if you know what I need.

Sounds like the one they may call the Nomad
http://5thgencamaro.blogspot.com/200...nameplate.html

Personally, I think they have enough Lambda vehicles in the lineup, adding to it would continue GMs flooding of their own market, but what do I know...

I like the GMC Acadia the best, sans the ricer tail lamps.

If they do kill the Trailblazer, they would need something there, they still need to trim some fat with these brands IMO

I love that back seat area. Too nice for the rugrats though, I'd make them drive so I could lounge back there.

Hehe.

nope, the official name for the Chevrolet version of the "Lambda Platform" is Traverse instead of Nomad. I personally liked the name Nomad better

Well, it's not that bad of a name..."The Chevy Traverse"...it's got a little bit of a ring to it...
