Car shopping can be overwhelming, there are so many cars out on the market that it can be hard to keep track of which cars are perfect for you. Here at Bill DeLuca Chevrolet Buick GMC we aim to make your shopping experience as effortless as possible. Join us as we compare these competing models, the 2022 Buick Enclave & the Ford Explorer, and discuss their highlights and differences. 

Price Comparison 

The 2022 Buick has a starting MSRP of $42,800, while this is slightly more than the Ford Explorer, you get what you pay for with the Buick Enclave. This luxurious Buick uses every penny to build a beautiful and stylish midsize SUV that others envy on the road. Even though it's highly customizable, the Enclave comes standard with features you have to pay extra for in the Ford Explorer. 

Performance & Fuel Efficiency 

When buying a new vehicle, most people look for high performance features and efficient gas mileage. The 2022 Buick Enclave has both of these highly sought after features with 18/26 MPG, while this isn't as much as the Ford Explorer, the other performance features outshine anything else. Some of the highlights of performance capabilities in the 2022 Buick Enclave include:

  • Intelligent All-Wheel Drive

  • Five-Link Rear Suspension System

  • Towing Capabilities of up to 5,000 lbs

  • 3.6L V6 Engine

  • 9-speed Automatic Transmission

  • 310 Horsepower

Interior Features

When comparing the interior features in the Enclave and the Explorer, the Enclave is the clear winner in this category. The luxurious interior provides you with comfort and convenience with features including: highly flexible cargo capabilities for every vacation, shopping trip and carpool arrangement imaginable. Quiettuning technology provides active noise cancellation to allow for uninterrupted time spent with your passengers. Leather appointed seating and other luxurious interior amenities, give you and your passengers that ultimately comfortable riding experience. All of these features cannot be found within the base price range of the Ford Explorer, making the Buick Enclave an easy choice.  


Both vehicles come equipped with high tech features, but a few stand out features in the 2022 Buick Enclave include: wireless phone charging, Wi-Fi hotspot, head-up display and the Amazon Alexa capabilities. All of these features are not even available in the Ford Explorer, which brings the Enclave out on top again.
