Taking an almost $2,000 base price increase over last year’s model, the 2013 Buick Enclave gets a host of additional standard equipment and revised styling.

“The original Enclave was a catalyst for the Buick, defining the brand’s high standards of design and refinement,” said Tony DiSalle, vice president of Buick Marketing. “The new 2013 model takes another step forward with a bolder look and advanced technologies.”

Offered with three different equipment groups, standard features include a seven-inch touch screen, a rear view camera with rear parking assistance, HID headlights, a remote start system and a power liftgate among others. Apart from that, every model will also come with GM’s industry-first front center airbag which debuted in the 2013 Acadia.

Two more trim levels are available: the Leather Group and Premium Group, the first of which starts at $43,285 and adds features like memory seats, the obvious leather upholstery as well as blind spot detection and a cross traffic alert system.

The top-end Premium Group includes everything from the previous level and adds standard 19-inch chrome wheels, articulating headlamps, a Bose stereo, cooled front seats and more. As the best-appointed package, the premium Enclave starts at $46,450, but well equipped with all-wheel drive, navigation and a trailering package easily runs the car into $50,000 territory.
