http://media.gm.com - Demonstrating its commitment to designing quality vehicles that meet consumer needs, General Motors received six segment-level awards — the most of any automaker — in the 2016 J.D. Power U.S. Automotive Performance, Execution and Layout (APEAL) study. The APEAL Study examines how gratifying a new vehicle is to own and drive.

http://www.autoblog.com - Expect the next Buick Enclave to move upmarket and compete against Acura and Volvo. Although the vehicle in the photos is completely covered in camouflage, we can make out the new Buick family grill. There are a set of LED running lights up front and what appear to be a location for foglights toward the bottom. The camo covering is cut in places to allow gaps for sensors, presumably for parking and other driver aids. Out back, the rectangular taillights don't appear to be production ready.

http://www.kbb.com - Buick’s family-friendly Enclave luxury SUV for 2017 has a lot going for it. Its aging platform remains strong, offering generous accommodations in all three rows and a large cargo area behind the 3rd-row seat. And while the Enclave ranks low in the areas of fuel economy and safety technology, it certainly isn’t worth passing up a test drive.
http://www.cheatsheet.com - For the first time in their history, the Acadia and Enclave no longer share the same bones. The Acadia is all-new for 2017, joining the Cadillac XT5 on the new C1XX platform, leaving the Enclave on the Lambda until a redesigned model bows for the 2018 model year. GMC may have just made its best-selling model even stronger (and better looking to boot), but the Enclave has been punching above its weight for years. So can the two compete even though the GMC has already gotten a big head start?
http://www.kbb.com - The all-new 2016 Buick Envision slots between the subcompact Encore and the midsize Enclave SUVs. As a premium compact crossover SUV, the 5-passenger Envision offers more amenities than a mainstream SUV like the Honda CR-V, but less swank than a Mercedes-Benz GLC or its own cousin, the Cadillac XT5. Like other Buicks, the Envision stands out with its quiet, comfortable manners.
http://www.autonews.com - GM and Ford finished first and second in a study that takes a look at a vehicle's American makeup. GM's crossover trio of the Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia had the high score of 90 in the 2016 Kogod Made in America Auto Index.
http://www.thetruthaboutcars.com - It looks like a gas card mailout didn’t take all the heat off of General Motors. After compensating owners of its full-size 2016 crossovers in the wake of the recent fuel economy controversy, a class action lawsuit filed in a California court is pointing the finger at older models and demanding the automaker pay up.
