No Such Thing As a Basic Summer Road Trip In A BUICK


You haven’t heard of SSS? It’s Buick‘s promise to its drivers in its fabulous new, fully decked out Enclave… and we had the pleasure of driving it out to Gurney’s Montauk Yatch Club this summer.

SSS means Social, Safe, Stylish and BELLAs let me tell you, our SUV delivered  on this promise and beyond! My family owned a Buick growing up, so I was in familiar territory, or so I thought.

I was so impressed by our SUV’s features: its elegant design and its new and versatile functionality. Despite the amount of rain NY got hit with the day of our trip, I felt safe and secure making our way to Montauk with both of my boys in tote.


The spaciousness and intuitive technologies really do define the all-new Buick Enclave. With premium craftsmanship, three rows of luxury seating and cargo flexibility to take it all with you, the time together becomes time well-spent.


  • Cargo flexibility provides ample room for comfortable seating, luggage, bikes, beach gear and much more on a long drive
  • QuietTuning creates a peaceful drive experience for driver and passengers from the busy city to the blissful beach
  • Advanced safety technologies – rear camera mirror, surround vision camera, ultrasonic sensors, stop/start engine – provide security, and responsive handling allows for more confident driving for a worry-free ride with family
  • Up to 5,000 pounds of trailering capacity, more than enough to tow a typical 21-foot sport boat for a getaway on the water
  • Ease of connectivity with 4G LTE Wi-Fi, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto available in more rural, beachfront areas outside the city so you can get away while still staying in touch
  • The entire family can comfortably fit into the Enclave with more space than ever before, a power-folding third-row and SmartSlide seat
  • Air ionizer eliminates odors and provides higher air quality while QuietTuning helps reduce noise entering the cabin, so families can communicate easily along the way
  • Buick’s attention to design, both interior (attention to materials) and exterior features (sweeping lines, LED lighting) make a statement in the trendy “all eyes on you” summer town of Montauk, while still delivering on the practicality families need
  • Customers are getting more space than before, but with a design that’s visually smaller and expressive


We enjoyed our stay, the relaxing time beach side, and a beautiful boat ride by the Montauk shore. As diehard roadtrippers, however, my boys and I were excited to get back on the road in our fabulous BUICK Enclave SUV. We loved it so much, it’s looking like our next family vehicle!
