U.S. News Names 2021 Buick Enclave to Quietest SUVs List | Tampa, FL

Driving a noisy car can be a real nuisance, and it can also be a safety hazard that prevents you from hearing important road noises. Luckily, many cars these days are built with quietness in mind. In April, U.S. News & World Report released its list of The 2021 Quietest SUVs in 2021. Included on that list was none other than the 2021 Buick Enclave.

The 2021 Enclave comes with QuietTuning technology, which is designed to filter out noise from the powertrain, the road, and traffic. To do this, QuietTuning uses active noise cancellation technology developed in partnership with Bose and Panasonic. The technology uses hidden microphones within the cabin to create a sound designed to filter out low-frequency noises such as body vibrations and acceleration. Additionally, the Enclave’s design incorporates materials designed to dampen noise, and the powertrain is designed to limit vibrations. Altogether, this adds up to a more peaceful and enjoyable ride.

“At $40,000, the Buick Enclave is pricey for a mainstream midsize SUV, but that extra money is well spent if you’re seeking a comfortable cabin that filters out road noise,” said U.S. News’ Steven Loveday.

That price tag also comes with options like tri-zone climate control, heated and ventilated front seats, Smart Slide second-row seats to make the third row more accessible, and the Buick Infotainment system. The latter comes with standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration, Bluetooth® streaming audio, and an optional wireless phone charger.
