In order to express its gratitude for American customers loyalty, Buick launches a special edition of the current Enclave. The mid-sized crossover has a more athletic appearance thanks to the new Sport Touring Edition. The Sport Touring is highlighted by a Satin Black Ice-toned grille and 20-inch chrome-clad wheels with Satin Black Ice accents.
The Sport Touring Edition brings the brand’s newest design theme to a vehicle with Buick’s most loyal customers. In 2015, 33.4 percent of Enclave sales came from returning customers. That’s the highest loyalty rate among all Buick models and one of the top model-to-model loyalty rates in the crossover SUV segment, topping key competitors such as Audi Q7 and Acura MDX, as well as vehicles like the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Toyota Highlander.
Since Enclave’s introduction in 2007, SUVs have jumped from 31 percent of Buick brand sales to 61 percent in 2015. It has remained a strong and consistent seller through eight years of sales and since 2013 has been paired with Buick’s small SUV, the Encore, which has since become the brand’s best-seller. The Envision compact SUV also joins Buick’s SUV lineup in North America this summer.
The new Buick Enclave Sport Touring Edition will be on display at the 2016 New York International Auto Show and goes on sale this summer, available on the Leather (1SL) and Premium (1SN) trims. It is offered in three premium exterior colors: White Frost Tricoat, Crimson Red Metallic and Ebony Twilight Metallic.
The new Enclave Sport Touring Edition joins the distinctively trimmed 2016 LaCrosse, Regal and Verano Sport Touring Edition luxury sedans models, as well as the Encore Sport Touring Edition, which features an exclusive, more powerful, more efficient 1.4L turbo engine. Additionally, the Enclave Tuscan Edition offers another design-focused special model, featuring a bronze-tone grille and 20-inch chrome-clad wheels with bronze accents.
