When it comes time to choose your next SUV, you will have multiple excellent options, including the 2017 Buick Enclave and the 2017 Buick Envision. Each of these offers the reliability and excellent warranty of Buick along with a great value and long list of standard features. While the 2017 Enclave will be a better choice for some Alabama drivers, others will be better off considering the Envision. Take a closer look to see which one you should buy.
2017 Buick Enclave and Envision: Pricing

Buick Enclave and Buick Envision: Engines
You will also want to consider how much power you need in your Buick SUV as a way of choosing between the Enclave and Envision. The Envision is more affordable, but it actually offers two engines. Most models come with a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder that generates 197 horsepower and 192 pound-feet of torque. The Envision Premium has 252 horsepower and 260 pound-feet from a 2-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder. The Enclave only has a single engine, but it is more powerful than even the upgraded option on the Envision. The 2017 Enclave runs on a 3.6-liter V6 with 288 horsepower and a torque of 270 pound-feet. While those who want to maximize power and torque will prefer the 2017 Buick Enclave, those who make efficiency a priority will want to buy the 2017 Envision instead.
2017 Buick Enclave and 2017 Buick Envision: Size
It only takes a glance to see that the Buick Enclave is larger than the Envision since they have three and two rows of seats, respectively. Clearly, those who need room for more than five passengers should opt for the Envision. However, if you don’t need that much space, the Enclave is a more affordable alternative. The Enclave also has more overall cargo space, as much as 115.2 cubic feet with the rear rows folded. This includes 68.9 cubes behind the second row. By comparison, the Envision has 57.3 cubes with the second row folded. If you plan to always use two rows of seats, however, the Envision actually has a cargo advantage. It offers 26.9 cubes behind the second row compared to 23.3 cubes behind the third row in the Enclave.
