The Enclave is a crossover SUV that’s great for families, as it provides three rows of seating and a comfortable interior to go with it.

In other words, Buick has produced something truly special — and with a base MSRP of $36,500, this luxurious vehicle is affordable for families all across Iowa.

A Fantastic Family Vehicle

As all the car dealers near Cedar Rapids will tell you, the 2012 Buick Enclave is a large crossover vehicle that’s a top choice for large families. You’ll get seating for eight, which is alone impressive, but the interior is tremendously versatile, too. Behind the third-row seats, you’ll find 19 cubic feet of cargo space; if you fold down the second- and third-row seats, you’ll have access to a positively cavernous 116 feet of cargo space.

The engine proclaims that versatility is the watchword, giving you an excellent balance of power and fuel economy. Available with either front-wheel or all-wheel drive, the 2012 Enclave comes equipped with a 3.6L V6 that generates 288 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque — and it’s able to tow as much as 4,500 pounds when equipped with the optional trailering package. Front-wheel drive models are capable of achieving 17 mpg city / 24 mpg highway / 19 mpg combined — strong numbers given its size and capabilities.

Finally, safety certainly isn’t a concern with the 2012 Enclave. In government testing, it earned a perfect five-star rating for overall safety, while the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave it the top rating of “good” in frontal-offset and side-impact crash tests.

If you’re looking for the best car dealer in the Belle Plaine area, you need to come visit Pat McGrath Buick GMC Cadillac today. We’re excited to offer our customers a huge selection of all the best new cars available, and we’re proud to deliver some of the best customer service you’ll find anywhere.

Knowing the Score

It turns out just a few numbers can tell you a lot about a vehicle, if they’re safety scores. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety rates all new cars according to standard tests that ensure vehicles offer proper protection in crashes. They test in four areas; the frontal offset test is designed to stress a vehicle’s strength and durability and makes sure that it can handle head-on collisions. The side impact test deals with collisions to the sides of cars to simulate a t-bone accident in an intersection. Rollover tests are also performed to determine how strong the roof is and how well it handles crushing forces. The last check run by the IIHS is a rear rash protection test.

Pat McGrath Buick GMC Cadillac is proud to offer our customers several 2012 sedans that offer top safety scores as rated by the IIHS. The all-new Buick Verano gets top marks in all categories tested by the IIHS and makes a great choice for an entry-level luxury sedan. Those looking for a more family-oriented sedan will enjoy the new LaCrosse which posts the same top ratings. The 2012 Buick Regal also manages to earn top scores across the board and makes a fine choice for those looking for a comfortable, large sedan. For the utmost in luxury the Cadillac CTS gives drivers all the features they want along with a perfect score from the IIHS.

Rear-wheel drive models that are properly equipped are capable of towing as much as 8,300 lbs.

Of course, features are one of the main draws of this vehicle. You’ll get your choice of four trim levels: Base, Luxury, Premium, and Platinum Edition. In the Base model, you’ll find, among other things, remote ignition, heated and ventilated front seats with 10-way power adjustment, leather upholstery, Bluetooth, a rearview camera, a navigation system, and a 10-speaker audio system, all atop a set of 18-inch wheels. Suffice it to say that features in the upper trim levels get pretty decadent, including a rear-seat entertainment system, dual exhaust, and even heated and cooled cup holders.

All models are capable of seating seven people, though all trims save for the Platinum Edition are available in eight-passenger configurations by fitting the second row with a bench seat. With the third-row seats removed and the second-row seats folded down, you’ll have access to a cavernous 108.9 cubic feet of storage space.
