“Uptown.” The phrase conjures images of sophisticated luxury – timeless elegance with a flavor for the avant-garde. It is fine furnishings and the latest electronics, cool jazz with an equal dose of hot salsa. It’s the blending of two colors to create a distinctive new shade. That’s the premise behind the Buick Enclave UpTown being introduced at the 2007 Specialty Equipment Market Association Show in Las Vegas. It was created by Rick Bottom Designs of Mendota, Ill.

The literal representation of Buick Enclave UpTown’s Ying and Yang is the two-tone paint theme – White Chocolate Pearl on top and Cocoa Metallic on the bottom. The paint is separated and accentuated by the discriminating use of custom chrome trim – the latter complementing the chrome trim found on production Enclaves, including on the front and rear bumper fascias, the grille surround and the renowned portholes. The Enclave Uptown is instantly noticed thanks to its production chrome vertical waterfall grille and Buick tri-shield.

Proving that a luxury crossover can be sporty, Enclave UpTown has been lowered two inches in the front, three inches in the rear and outfitted with 22-inch MOMO wheels and Pirelli tires. The result is a ground-hugging athletic appearance.

Enter Enclave UpTown via the genuine Buick Accessories molded assist steps to take in unparalleled entertainment. Buick’s QuietTuning does its best to contain a 2,000-watt Eclipse audio, video and navigation system that pumps out sound through 12 speakers, including two 12-inch subwoofers. To help ensure that the sound stays mainly within the vehicle, Enclave UpTown features additional Hushmat sound-damping material. Bluetooth technology, meanwhile, enables the driver and passengers to stay connected to their world while enjoying Enclave’s high level of luxury and comfort – reflected in the handsome Cashmere leather upholstery and Warm Camphor Burl wood trim. Premium floor mats complete the equipment upgrade.

While the Enclave has nice body lines, it doesn't have the body lines to properly execute a 2 tone paint job.

Horrible paint job on the exterior! Yikes!

I didn't think anyone could make this beautiful vehicle look ugly, but they did.

Love the cargo floor. Classy.

Two-tone really doesn't work on this car.
