Dubuque IA - 2018 Buick Enclave Overview

Exterior - 2018 Buick Enclave

At just over 17 feet long and 69.6 inches tall, the Enclave serving Dubuque Iowa possesses a formidable presence that looks like it could easily ferry seven people with little trouble. The robust front section starts things off by carrying the recognizable Buick grille with its roughly oval shape and span of black vertical ridges. The Buick emblem itself is positioned in the upper center with a pair of thin metallic arms. Soft creases ride up along the hood above the grille and narrow, angular headlights sporting LEDs while a secondary air intake sits just below the bumper as a counterbalance. Recessed creases flow along the door panels to connect the front and rear wheel wells. In back, stretched U-shaped taillights reach into an expansive liftgate resting over twin exhausts. With 7.7 inches of clearance, the 2018 Buick Enclave near Dubuque IA comes in ten colors including Black Cherry Metallic, Red Quartz Tintcoat, and Pepperdust Metallic.

Interior - 2018 Buick Enclave near Dubuque

Inside the Enclave located at Brad Deery Motors, the buyer can choose from three possible dashboard designs. They range from a layout of crisp semi-circular segments to a softer version of this pattern to a very distinct design utilizing free-form curves to create a longer horizontal appearance. Dubuque area specials include four color choices of Chestnut Brown, Brandy, Shale, and Dark Galvanized. Bolstering the interior's alluring aesthetics are equally attractive dimensions. Front seats offer 41 inches of headroom and 41.2 inches of legroom. Second row seats are nearly as generous with 39.9 inches of headroom and 38.9 inches of legroom. Finally, while other larger crossovers include third-row seating only useful for small children and family pets, the 2018 Buick Enclave near Dubuque IA designs its rear seats with 37.6 inches of headroom and 33.5 inches of legroom. None of this comes at the expense of cargo space since there's 23.6 cubic feet behind the third-row seats that grows to 58 cubic feet when they're lowered and explodes to 97.6 cubic feet with the second-row seats also dropped. Supporting this comfortable leeway are creature comforts available in entry-level Enclaves like tri-zone climate control with air conditioning, 6 USB ports, a 6-speaker sound system, power-adjusted heated front seats, 8-inch touchscreen, and 4G LTE WiFi hotspot. Moving up from there, Dubuque area specials can include leather trim, a Bose 10-speaker sound system, power sunroof, and a 120-volt outlet.

With a 170-amp alternator harnessed to the 310-horsepower engine in the 2018 Buick Enclave, theres plenty of juice to energize a huge array of motorized features. One addition becoming more common on many vehicles is electric power steering that provides the Enclave serving Dubuque Iowa with a 39-foot curb-to-curb turning radius. With this capability, power steering fluid maintenance becomes a thing of the past. There's also one less pulley wheel for the drive belt to contend with. Power windows, mirrors, and locks are standard on all Enclaves available at Brad Deery Motors but so are the adjustable front seats along with a motorized hands-free tailgate lifter. There's also the option for a power-retractable third seating row.

Powertrain - Buick Enclave specs near Dubuque IA

As a mid-size crossover capable of accommodating up to seven commuters, the 2018 Buick Enclave needs a muscular engine like the 3.6-liter V6 under its hood. Spawning 310 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque, this block partners with a 9-speed automatic transmission to attain a very efficient 18 mpg city and 26 mpg highway. Aiding in keeping gas consumption low is a start/stop feature that momentarily turns off the engine at stop lights and other pauses. The transmission includes paddle shifters to allow the driver more input into gear selection. Along with the smooth-shifting assistance of this transmission, the drive train on the 2018 Buick Enclave near Dubuque IA includes the option of all-wheel drive instead of the standard front-wheel drive mode. The choice of all-wheel drive barely alters mileage with 17 mpg city and 25 mpg highway.
