      • Amazing redesign

        By Aaron on Tuesday, December 26, 2017

        We had a 2015 Enclave and absolutely loved it. The quiet ride and comfort was great. The technology was lacking but we had the AWD for safety with driving in bad weather. Gas mileage for 3 years averaged 19MPG. Now we upgraded to the 2018 Premium and wow, what an upgrade. The ride is smoother and quieter which we didnt think was possible. More 1st row space, comfy seats, great technology package, push button parking brake, electrical folding 3rd row seats, and the 9-speed transmission really helps the acceleration which was lacking in the 2015. Its an amazing car and you should really test drive it. My wife and I are hooked. The only drawback so far is the 3rd row headrests. The block some sight lines when changing lanes. I just put those down and problem solved.
