Buick’s roll continues: General Motors announced that the brand’s total October sales increased by 31 percent and its retail sales jumped 25 percent from those figures last year. This marks the 18th consecutive month of year-over-year growth for Buick. A big reason for that success: the best-selling Enclave.
According to the Associated Press, Enclave’s 2013 U.S. sales are up almost 12 percent over 2012’s figures. As of November 1, the Enclave has sold 46,384 units in America, making it the top-seller in Buick’s luxurious lineup. Those figures don’t even factor in the arrival of the 2014 Enclave, which only recently hit showrooms like that of Hatfield Buick and GMC.
The 2014 Enclave comes standard with three rows of available seating and is powered by a direct-injected 3.6L V6 that produces 288 horsepower and 270 lb.-ft. of torque. The Los Angeles Times praised the 2014 Enclave’s refinement in styling and performance, noting in particular the comfortable ride, abundance of available power, and the refreshment of the exterior styling.
As Buick enjoys the residuals of its best October in a decade, the Enclave stands firm as a primary cause. On track to enjoy its best sales year in its history, November promises to be a fruitful one for both the Buick brand and its best-selling Enclave.
