The Best Packages Available on the 2021 Buick Enclave

The Buick Enclave is an attractive three-row SUV with a roomy, comfortable cabin and head-turning looks. It’s a terrific choice for anyone who needs room for a larger family or group of friends and who wants a sophisticated exterior that’s right at home in corporate and cosmopolitan settings. If you’re headed to a used Buick dealership and looking to explore a pre-owned Enclave, don’t just choose the first one that catches your eye and has a price you love. It’s important to know that the 2021 Enclave comes with a variety of packages, each one tailored to a specific customer base with specific needs. It’s what makes the Enclave so much more than your regular people hauler. It can be your trailering titan, your road trip warrior, or your safety superstar.

Buick understood in designing the Enclave that it’s not just carpool parents who drive three-row SUVs these days. Sometimes, that’s exactly who drives the Enclave, but if that’s you, you know there’s so much more to you than soccer games and science fairs. The Enclave lets drivers express their multifaceted personalities and fulfill their different driving needs with a smartly planned lineup of packages. Here’s a look at some of the most impressive packages available for the 2021 Buick Enclave. You’ll love how much variety there is here.

For Explorers, Adventurers, and Sunday Cruisers: The Sound and Sites Package

Maybe you don’t just see your SUV as transportation that gets you from point A to point B. Maybe you like to enjoy the journey as much as you do getting to your destination. If so, the Sound and Sites package is for you. This package features a Bose premium 10-speaker system. With cleverly placed speakers throughout the rows of the Enclave and some of the best technology in the sound game, this system means everyone will be completely encircled by your music, podcast, audiobook, or whatever you listen to on the road.

Perhaps you just about live on the road, too. Your passengers get ready for work or school in there. People are handling homework or emails on the go. If that sounds like your crew, you’ll like the 120-volt power outlet in this package. It gives passengers a chance to plug in just about anything they would in a home wall outlet, like a laptop, blow dryer, mini fan — you name it.
As much as you might enjoy the ride, you do need to get where you’re going eventually. That’s what the Buick infotainment with built-in navigation is for in this package. You’ll always get the turn-by-turn directions you need, even if your usual smartphone navigation app is glitching out.

For Rush Hour Warriors Who Demand Comfort: The Memory Package

If you spend a lot of time on the road, you know how important it is to be comfortable in your seat. Driving at an angle or height that is uncomfortable can mean arriving with a kink in your neck or a sore lower back. But, if you sometimes let other drivers take the wheel, they might adjust your settings and not put them back. That’s where this package comes in. It offers two presets for an eight-way power driver’s seat. So you or another regular driver can create a seating profile and have the seat automatically return to your preferred settings each time you get in.

The exterior mirrors also have memory in this package. So when you get in your vehicle and turn on the ignition, the mirrors will automatically return to your desired settings. It doesn’t matter if another driver adjusted them – they’ll return to your preferred position. You can even adjust the steering column tilt, and the system will remember your preferred angle.

For Campers and Long-Haul Sojourners: The Trailering Package

If you want to utilize the maximum 5,000-pound trailer capabilities on the Enclave, consider this package. It is loaded with features that help you stay in command when trailering and keep your
passengers and cargo safe.This package offers Hitch Guidance, a camera-with-sensor system that provides guidelines on the touchscreen in the cabin. These help you perfectly connect the trailer hitch to the trailered item on the first try (most of the time). An additional top-down Hitch View gives you a close look at the connector point during this tricky process. A heavy-duty cooling system makes sure essential components of your vehicle do not overheat when you are pushing it to its trailering limits. If you plan on trailering with a camper or similar item regularly, this package is a must-have.

For Drivers Transporting Precious Cargo: The Avenir Technology Package

Even though every Buick Enclave comes with a generous standard suite of driver assist features, if you want the best of the best when it comes to preventing collisions and unfortunate incidents, check out this package.

The Avenir Technology Package gets you adaptive cruise control. This system builds on standard cruise control (which lets you set a desired speed and take your foot off the accelerator, and the vehicle maintains your speed) and adds following distance automation. So you’ll also set the desired distance between your vehicle and that in front of you, and the Adaptive Cruise Control will prioritize that over your desired speed, slowing down when necessary and speeding back up when it’s safe to do so.

This package also gets Enhanced Automatic Emergency Braking. If you fail to respond to the collision alert system by braking in time to avoid an accident, this system boasts high responsiveness and will take over braking for you to prevent a crash. Also, as a part of this system, you’ll find a continuously variable real-time damping system that provides an incredibly smooth and comfortable ride.

For Tourists and Curious Travelers: The Sun and Sites Package

This package differs slightly from the Sounds and Sites package in important ways. It, too, has the Buick infotainment with built-in navigation, but beyond that, it focuses on travel-friendly features, like a power moonroof that lets you take in the sites when you’re traveling through new and exciting terrain. It adds 20-inch polished cast-aluminum wheels that mean you get to travel in style. It’s a simple package, but it can really boost your road trip experience.

Make Your 2021 Buick Enclave Work for You With an Excellent Package

As you can see, there are many sides to the Buick Enclave—just as there are many sides to you. It’s a far cry from your standard carpool parent SUV that’s solely focused on cargo and passenger comfort for young passengers on their way to school. There are many ways to enjoy this powerful and attractive SUV and tons of packages that allow you to make the Enclave uniquely your own.

Give some thought to what sort of driving personality you have and what you want your Enclave to give you the power to do. Once you’ve explored these packages, you can visit a used Buick dealership and tell them you’re looking for a pre-owned 2021 Buick with one of these specific packages. Just because you aren’t purchasing and designing your Enclave, doesn’t mean you can’t find a great deal on a used model that has the package you’re looking for.
