What We Know About the 2022 Buick Enclave

The 2022 Buick Enclave continues its reputation for affordable luxury — and delivers subtle modifications that make it the best Enclave yet. Here’s what you should know about the 2022 model that’s set to arrive in dealerships this fall.

For starters, the 2022 Enclave has a sleeker build with revamped bumpers, headlamps, and taillamps for a more modern vibe. The center console’s push-button shifter takes a cue from its smaller sibling, the Envision. And you can now access Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ wirelessly for more convenience.

And the SUV gets more standard driver-assist features than the previous model year for a confidence boost each time you get behind the wheel. These systems include the following: automatic high-beam headlamps, automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitoring, lane-keeping assist, rear parking sensors, and rear cross-traffic alert. 

Lastly, the Avenir trim gets more luxurious for the 2022 model year. Outside, the SUV boasts trim-exclusive fascias, grille, taillights, and wheels. Inside, the front seats have heated, ventilated, and massaging functions so you can feel like royalty when shuffling the kids to and from school or sports practice. New wood inlays, quilted leather upholstery, and a chrome sill plate in the cargo area add sophistication.  

Test-drive the 2022 Enclave later this year when it arrives on our lot at Jim Causley Buick GMC Truck in Clinton Township, Michigan. In the meantime, stop by to take one of our other new Buick SUVs for a whirl.

Picking The Right Car Seat For Your GMC SUV

Picking the right car seat - Clinton Twp, MI

Whether you’ve got children or you’re expecting, it’s vitally important to make sure you have a car seat to keep them as safe as you are in your GMC SUV. However, the buying process can be difficult if you don’t know what to look for. So, we put together a quick list of tips for picking the right car seat for your GMC.

 

Pick the right size

No matter their age, kids grow like weeds, and their size and age make a big difference in which car seat is right for them. For instance, infants and very young children’s car seats should be rear-facing, whereas toddlers’ seats should be front-facing. Additionally, as your young one gets bigger, they may outgrow their car seat, so make sure they fit comfortably before making a final decision.

 

Make sure the seat fits

Car seats aren’t all the same, so it’s important to make sure that any one you’re thinking about buying will actually fit in your vehicle. If you can’t get it to sit firmly on the actual seat or you have trouble securing it, look for another option.

 

Practice installation

Actually getting a car seat into place can be deceptively challenging, so give installing it a few test runs before you finalize the purchase.

 

GMC SUVs like the Acadia are safe enough to earn a five-star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, but a car seat is essential for children, even in the safest of vehicles.
