Buick Enclave Video Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

Haha, no led taillights.  Cheapo.

The LED tailights are saved for the Acadia.

I doubt that the average Enclave buyer will mind. Obviously the money was spent on the overall styling and the very classy and luxurious interior.

This will be Buick's biggest hit in decades.

this just demonstrates that GM could build a fully working model of Christ himself and someone would complain that the water to wine function only dispenses a Merlot.

Looks close to the concept, the interior is thankfully identical to the concept. I dare say that's one of the finest interiors. Period. It is kinda lame that it doesn't get LED tail laights yet the less luxurious GMC will. Doesn't the Aura have LEDs too? ANyway, it's not a big issue or anything, just odd. As long as the saved money went into that interior...who cares :P

Does it really cost too much more to develop and produce LED tails that regular incandescent? I don't know I guess. I can't be too much more can it?

Do LED tails even cost more? I mean, development-wise, it seems like it'd be about the same, and LEDs are not expensive... I'd think the cost difference would be so minimal that they could just decide that every new model gets LEDs and be done with it...

For something that's not a 'big issue', sure are a lot of you harping on LED taillights. Are you saying the bulb in the taillight lessens the entire rest of the vehicle? Not everyone cares, wants or even likes them. For me, unless their 'veiled' (ala the '00 Deville)- they look stupid.

I'm not saying that it is a BIG deal, just would be cool, and I know exactly what you mean about the 00 Deville's. They are what started my love of LED tails, the STS's SRX's and Escalade's followed up on that. It would just be a nice thing to see on there I think.

i don't know if it was a matter of cost, but maybe rather asthetics. I don't think the LED's would give the effect they wanted in the tailights. Much like how the current CTS has the neon bulb CHMSL.

And it doesn't look like the concept had LED brakelamps either. so i guess we can't fault them for "not staying true to concept".... :scratchchin:

I think LEDs gives the creator some flexibility to be unique with taillamps. One thing I don't like about Buick's are that the brake lights and directionals are the same lamp. I like it when you have them separate. Call it silly, but it's just a preference.

As for LEDs, I understand they wanted the jeweled look... but again, do something creative. Besides, LEDs are nice because they last a lot longer.

I am wondering if those wheels will be production. I'm not a big fan of the typical giant wheels of today, but the 21's on the concept were fantastic looking. It gave the vehicle a very wide, stable, substantial look. Are those wheels off of something else, or are they new? That friggin' camo works well. You can't see any real lines on that Enclave. Without some well known 'tell-tale' signs, we'd of never known it was an Enclave...

The shots of the interior look like they stayed true to the concept. Couldn't see if the stitching was there on the dash, but overall it looked the same....which is great.

Hard to figure why so many are worried about taillights.....also hard to figure that if LEDs are considered "nicer" than "regular" bulbs, why GMC would get them instead of BUICK. BUICK is more "high end" than GMC.....

Looks like the wheels are the 18's off the Aura XR...

It aggravates me as it looks like they cheaped out. It's like the idiocy inside my CTS, with no reading lamps in the back and no light in the globebox. Sure, you can go on about how it's a little thing, but it's those little things that aggravate me to no end.

I'm still going to look at the Enclave, but if they screw up a little thing like the tail lights by going cheap there, where else did they cheap out?

That's sad...especially considering Shadows came with glovebox lights.

I love the attitude on here towards the LEDs. A few months ago some of you were laughing at/complaining about the Avalon not having them when the Azera does. Why the sudden change? For me, the Enclave should have them and Acadia should not. Then again, like Dodgefan said, I'd rather have a great interior than LEDs.

Either way, if I could buy this car I would without giving it a second thought. Unfortunately, I'm 19 and money doesn't grow on trees. To me, this is the most significant vehicle GM has made in a long time. It's the whole package.
