The Enclave crossover SUV has been changing consumer perception about the Buick brand and about luxury crossovers since it was introduced. Blending style and grace with precision, Enclave delivers comfort for up to eight, plenty of space for cargo and at 24 mpg highway (2WD), better fuel economy than any eight-passenger SUV.
The Enclave offers a host of standard equipment and the industry’s best warranty coverage. Its appeal as a premium family vehicle gives it the lowest average age of any Buick model, at 59. Customers also agree that the smart money is on Enclave, because more than half of all owners are college graduates with a median yearly income of more than $100,000.
"Enclave proves you don’t have to spend a lot to get the royal treatment of a luxurious crossover SUV," said Roger McCormack, director of marketing for Buick. Model year-to-date, Enclave sales are up more than 30 percent over the same period a year earlier, and are up 33 percent for the first quarter of 2010 over 2009.
For 2011, Buick Enclave is available in CX and CXL models with front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.
Powerful V-6 with direct injection, and six-speed transmission
Buick Enclave features a fuel-efficient 3.6L direct injected V-6 VVT engine that blends power, smoothness, efficiency and technical sophistication for a SAE-certified 288 horsepower (215 kW)* and 270 lb.-ft. (366 Nm) of torque.*
Enclave achieves an EPA-estimated 24 mpg highway for front-wheel drive models and 22 mpg highway for all-wheel-drive models.
The 3.6L direct injection engine is designed to operate with regular unleaded gasoline – which saves money compared to luxury brands that require premium fuel – and produces power similar to many V-8 engines. With direct injection, fuel is sprayed directly to the combustion chamber to create a more complete burn of the fuel/air mixture.
As a result, less fuel is required to produce the equivalent horsepower of a conventional port-injection combustion system, especially at normal cruising speeds. Ninety percent of the Enclave engine’s peak torque is available from approximately 2,500 rpm to more than 6,000 rpm. Also, using unique pistons with the direct injection system helps reduce cold-start emissions by 25 percent.
The 3.6L engine is mated to the Hydra-Matic 6T75 electronically controlled six-speed automatic transmission. Its wide, 6.04:1 overall ratio helps the transmission deliver both performance and fuel economy, enabling up to a 7-percent improvement in performance and up to a 4-percent improvement in fuel economy when compared to front-wheel-drive four-speed automatics. The transmission has been designed so that the Enclave can be flat-towed in FWD and AWD configurations. The Enclave can tow up to 4,500 pounds (2,045 kg) when properly equipped.
Redesigned from the ground up last year, the Buick LaCrosse luxury sedan rolls into 2011 building on the attributes that have made it an unqualified success. In a still-recovering market, LaCrosse sales are up more than 200 percent when compared to the model it replaced.
The LaCrosse offers a great design, all-wheel drive, a suite of advanced personal technologies and safety features, and a choice of two fuel-saving powertrains. A fuel-efficient, direct injected Ecotec 2.4L four-cylinder engine is the standard engine in CX and CXL FWD models (it was added to the lineup in mid-2010 on CX).
Backed by a fuel-saving six-speed automatic transmission, the Ecotec 2.4L powertrain delivers an EPA-rated 30 mpg on the highway and 19 mpg in the city – making LaCrosse one of the most fuel-efficient cars in its segment. Buick expects about 25 percent of LaCrosse customers will opt for the engine.
Direct injection technology helps the Ecotec 2.4L deliver 182 horsepower (136 kW) and 172 lb-ft. of torque (233 Nm). The injection of fuel directly into the combustion chamber enables a higher compression ratio to increase efficiency and horsepower. That means more power is made with less fuel and lower emissions. In fact, cold-start emissions are reduced by up to 25 percent with direct injection. Engineers tuned the engine to deliver greater torque at lower rpm and build it smoothly toward its peak at 4,900 rpm, giving the LaCrosse excellent performance in all driving conditions.
The Ecotec 2.4L diversifies the LaCrosse’s powertrain lineup, which also includes a 3.6L V-6 with variable valve timing and direct injection; it is rated at 280 horsepower (209 kW) and 259 lb.-ft. of torque (351 Nm). AWD is available on 3.6L-equipped models.
The 2011 LaCrosse is offered in three models – CX, CXL and CXS:
- CX – the Ecotec 2.4L engine and six-speed automatic transmission are standard, along with cloth seats, a rear spoiler, XM Satellite Radio and more.
- CXL FWD – it comes standard with the Ecotec 2.4L and offers a 3.6L direct injected V-6; it also adds leather-appointed heated seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, fog lamps, outside rearview mirror with LED turn indicators and puddle lamps, and 18-inch alloy wheels. An advanced all-wheel-drive system with electronic limited-slip differential (eLSD) is available. Electronic limited-slip differential splits torque across the axle to whichever wheel has more grip to enhance control in icy or wet conditions.
- CXL AWD – includes similar equipment to the CXL FWD, but comes standard with the 3.6L V-6.
- CXS – also equipped with the 3.6L direct injection V-6; the CXL also offers real-time active-dampening suspension; perforated, leather-appointed, heated and ventilated seats, and chrome-plated 18-inch alloy wheels (19-inch optional with the Touring package).
Changes are minor for 2011 and include the Ecotec 2.4L as standard on the CXL FWD, along with variable-effort electric power steering on 2.4L-equipped models. Also, a tire repair kit is available and replaces the standard compact spare tire and jack.
The 2011 Buick Lucerne is offered in CX, CXL, EXL and Super models. All include a comprehensive list of standard equipment, with CX models offering six-way power passenger seat; heated power outside rearview mirrors; an extended-range key fob and 17-inch aluminum wheels. CX models are available with cloth seating in five-passenger configurations. Six-passenger seating is available.
More standard luxury features are also found on CXL and EXL, including eight-way heated driver and front-passenger seats; power lumbar adjustments; memory settings; heated leather steering wheel and 17-inch aluminum wheels. Leather-appointed, five-passenger seating is standard on CXL models; six-passenger seating is available. EXL adds the Driver Confidence Package (available on CXL), which includes ultrasonic rear parking assist, remote vehicle starting and theft deterrent system. Side Blind Zone Alert, Lane Departure Warning, outside rearview mirrors with integrated turn signal indicators and 17-inch chrome plated aluminum wheels are also included.
The Lucerne Super is distinguished with features unavailable on other models, including:
- Premium steering components for more precise steering and a higher level of responsiveness
- Magnetic Ride Control technology – recalibrated for even more driver control and performance, while further reducing body roll in cornering and lane changes
- Eighteen-inch chrome-plated aluminum wheels with P245/50R18 all-season radial tires.
Exterior Lucerne Super enhancements include a unique grille, front and rear fascias and rocker panels. Also setting Lucerne Super apart are integrated exhaust tips and a "Super" badge on the decklid. Inside, Lucerne Super features a leather-wrapped instrument panel upper with French seam stitching; suede trim on the doors and on the standard heated and cooled front seats; heated real walnut wood-accented steering wheel; walnut wood shifter; a Nova Silver finish for the center stack; model-specific sill plates and premium floor mats.
Additional Lucerne Super premium amenities include a 280-watt, nine-speaker Harman Kardon sound system that includes a six-disc CD changer and MP3 player. Eighteen-inch chrome-plated aluminum wheels are standard on the Super. Lucerne Super is available exclusively in Cocoa/Shale or Ebony interior trim. Lucerne EXL and Super customers may also opt for touch-screen navigation or sunroof.
Powering Lucerne CX, CXL and EXL models is a responsive, FlexFuel-capable 3.9L V-6 engine. It delivers an SAE-certified 227 horsepower (169 kW) and 237 lb.-ft. of torque (321 Nm). Lucerne Super is powered by a 4.6L Northstar V-8 engine that is rated at 292 horsepower (218 kW)* and 288 lb.-ft. of torque (390 Nm)*.
The 4.6L V-8 is paired with GM’s electronically controlled Hydra-Matic 4T80 four-speed automatic transaxle, while the 3.9L V-6 is mated to the 4T65 four-speed automatic transaxle. All Lucerne engines feature electronic throttle control to seamlessly match driver input with engine response while maximizing overall fuel efficiency.
For 2011, Regal is offered in premium CXL trim only, with additional trim levels to be offered in the 2012 model year. The well-equipped Regal CXL includes the following as standard or available equipment:
- Standard Ecotec 2.4L direct injected engine rated at an estimated 182 horsepower (136 kW)

Acadia’s body-frame integral structure enables lower entry/exit height for passengers. Despite the vehicle’s SUV-like front-end height, the front door step-in height is only 18.9 inches (480 mm); the rear door step-in height is 19.8 inches (503 mm). Entry to the second- and third-row seats is easy with very wide rear doors and GM’s exclusive Smart Slide second-row seat feature.
All models are powered by a 3.6L V-6 VVT engine that uses gasoline direct injection technology to optimize performance and fuel economy. The engine is paired with Acadia’s fuel-saving six-speed automatic transmission to help give FWD models an EPA-estimated 24 mpg on the highway. The Acadia also is capable of towing up to 5,200 pounds (2364 kg), when properly equipped.
Acadia’s interior exudes refinement and attention to detail, with many thoughtful features designed into a finely crafted environment. A car-like "low and away" instrument panel enhances the feeling of openness in the front-row seats and provides a commanding outward view. The instrument panel and other interior elements feature high-quality, low-gloss materials and tight gap tolerances.
Features that reinforce Acadia’s refinement and complement passenger comfort include:
- Heated outside mirrors that quickly de-fog or de-ice for improved visibility
- A power liftgate that opens and closes with the key fob, a button just inside the liftgate or from the front seat, with a switch in the center console
- Extended-range remote vehicle start

With a maximum payload of 1,422 pounds (645 kg) and an available 5.3L V-8 that enables a towing capacity of 6,000 pounds (2,721 kg), the midsize GMC Canyon delivers big-time capability. The 5.3L V-8 is available on extended cab and crew cab models, delivering 300 horsepower (224 kW) and 320 lb.-ft. of torque (434 Nm).
The 2011 Canyon lineup includes regular cab, extended cab and crew cab body styles; two pickup bed lengths; three available suspensions and three engines. Vehicles are offered in Work Truck, SLE and SLT trims. The popular Z71 Off Road package offers distinctive visual cues to augment its suspension differentiation; it is available on 2WD and 4WD models. The ZQ8 sport suspension, paired with the 5.3L V-8 and 18-inch wheels, is also available.
Canyon models can seat up to six (crew cab model), while offering much higher levels of ride comfort, handling, quietness and interior space than many other midsize trucks. Standard features include head curtain side air bags, StabiliTrak electronic stability control system, rack-and-pinion steering, intermittent wipers, XM Satellite Radio, air conditioning, tilt steering wheel, cruise control and folding outside mirrors. Available equipment includes remote keyless entry; fog lamps; self-dimming inside rearview mirror; running boards; power, heated leather seating; and high-back bucket seats.
Crew cab models offer a 60/40-split/folding rear seat capable of accommodating three adults. Extended cab versions have four doors, and its two folding rear seats face forward. Regular and extended cab models have a 6-foot 1-inch (1.85 m) pickup bed with taller sides than many competitors, providing best-in-class volume for deeper storage and higher overall payload. Crew cab bed lengths are 5-foot 1-inch (1.55 m).
Both beds offer two-tier cargo loading, and tailgates that are both lockable and easily removable. The tailgate opens to almost 90 degrees, but can be set at a 55-degree opening – putting the tailgate edge at the same height as the top of the rear wheel wells within the cargo box, creating a sturdy, flat platform to conveniently transport longer items or 4-foot by 8-foot (1.2-meter by 2.4-meter) panels.
Changes for 2011 include OnStar 9.0, with a six-month Directions and Connections plan; Bluetooth phone connectivity; a revised front headrest design and a new exterior color choice: Aqua Blue Metallic. A chrome package is also available and includes a chrome fuel door and exhaust tip.
From job-ready Work Truck models to the unique combination of performance and luxury that is the Sierra Denali, the GMC Sierra lineup is one of the broadest in the industry. Powerful Vortec-based powertrains, backed by fuel-saving six-speed automatic transmissions, help Sierra models deliver among the industry’s best fuel economy and performance – all with responsive ride and handling traits, and an exceptionally quiet driving experience.
A special Sierra XFE crew cab model is EPA-rated at 22 mpg on the highway. The Sierra Hybrid model returns for 2011, too, offering a 25-percent improvement in overall fuel economy, along with Sierra’s traditional capabilities – including a 6,200-pound (2,812 kg) towing capacity. Please see the separate Sierra Hybrid release for complete details and specifications.
For 2011, changes to the Sierra lineup are include a new Gray Green Metallic exterior color, OnStar 9.0 and enhancements that reduce wind noise.

GMC Sierra Denali 2500HD and 3500HD – the first offerings of the exclusive Denali line on a heavy-duty GMC pickup – lead a new Sierra heavy-duty truck lineup for 2011. The comprehensively redesigned roster of 2011 Sierra 2500HD and 3500HD trucks includes a new, more powerful 6.6L Duramax turbo diesel that delivers 397 horsepower (296 kW) at 3,000 rpm and 765 lb.-ft. of torque (1,037 Nm) at 1,600 rpm.
"The new Sierra Denali HD is the latest expression of GMC’s Denali philosophy of blending capability with premium features and styling," said Lisa Hutchinson, GMC product marketing director. "It is a premium tool that offers many comfort and infotainment features, along with a maximum towing capacity of 21,700 pounds with the more powerful Duramax diesel."
The new Denali HDs are crew cabs available only in the 2500 series (3/4-ton), 2WD and 4WD configurations, as well as the 3500 Series (1-ton) 2WD and 4WD in both single-rear-wheel and dually versions. The 3500 series is also available in standard (6-foot 6-inches) and dually long box (8-foot) versions. A Vortec 6.0L gas V-8/six-speed automatic powertrain is standard and the new Duramax 6.6L turbo diesel/Allison 1000 six-speed transmission powertrain is available on all Denali HDs.
The iconic Denali four-bar, chrome grille with round air inlets distinguishes the Sierra Denali HDs on the outside, along with body-color bumpers, chrome door handles, chrome accents and 17- (Dually), 18- and 20-inch polished forged aluminum wheels. On the inside they include Denali-specific brushed aluminum trim, power-adjustable pedals, a Bose premium surround audio system and 12-way power seats. Along with an optional heated steering wheel, heated and cooled leather-appointed seating is available. The exterior is offered in three colors: Black, Stealth Gray and White.
The balance of the new 2011 Sierra HD lineup is identified on the outside by new, three-bar grilles and powertrain-badged louvered hoods, along with a revised, full-width chrome steel front bumper and a new family of 17-, 18- and 20-inch wheels. It’s beneath the skin, however, where they are truly separated from their predecessors – and the competition. Highlights include:
- Greater towing capability (21,700 lbs./9,843 kg) and payload (6,635 lbs./3,009 kg) supported by all-new fully-boxed, high-strength-steel frames and strong
- suspensions for maximum capability and exceptional ride characteristics
- New 6.6L Duramax diesel delivering more power, up to 11-percent greater highway fuel economy, up to 63-percent lower emissions, B20 biodiesel capability and quicker acceleration

"GMC has been one of the industry’s strongest truck brands for more than 100 years, and we back the 2011 Sierra HDs with a comprehensive five-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty that provides the best coverage in America," said Hutchinson. "From greater diesel power to the segment-best warranty, these trucks deliver strength and peace of mind on all fronts."
The following pages provide details of the new and redesigned product features of the Sierra Denali HD and the other Sierra 2500HD and 3500HD models.
Compromise is a part of life, but not in the 2011 GMC Sierra Hybrid. This powerful, full-size pickup achieves 33-percent greater city fuel economy and a 23.5-percent improvement in overall fuel economy over non-hybrid models, while delivering GMC’s legendary capability – including a 6,100-pound (2,767 kg) towing capacity.
Estimated fuel economy for both 2WD and 4WD models is 20 mpg in the city and 23 on the highway. With the 26-gallon (98 L) fuel tank, Sierra Hybrid delivers a cruising range of more than 500 miles. The truck’s impressive efficiency is due to General Motors’ patented two-mode hybrid system and a powerful 6.0L gas V-8. It offers all-electric driving up to 30 mph (48 km/h), a design that saves fuel even when the truck is fully loaded or towing a trailer.
The Sierra Hybrid is offered in the Crew Cab body style on both 2WD and 4WD models. Each model is equipped with several standard, popular features, including StabiliTrak electronic stability control system, a locking rear axle and a trailering package. Sierra Hybrid also offers dual-stage frontal air bags and head curtain side air bags.
For 2011, the Sierra Hybrid includes a new Gray Green Metallic exterior color, OnStar 9.0 and enhancements that reduce wind noise.
The Sierra Hybrid’s fuel-saving performance is derived from GM’s advanced Electrically Variable Transmission (EVT) and 300-volt nickel-metal hydride Energy Storage System (ESS), which work with the standard 6.0L V-8 gasoline engine with Active Fuel Management (AFM) and late intake valve closing (LIVC) technology. GM’s hybrid system not only enables the Sierra to launch and drive up to 30 mph on electricity alone, it allows the Vortec 6.0L V-8 engine to operate in its more economical V-4 mode for longer periods.
As part of the vehicle’s emission control system, the ESS is warranted for eight years/100,000 miles.
In the Sierra Hybrid, the hybrid system itself generates the electricity used to propel the vehicle. When the brakes are applied or the vehicle is coasting, the electric motors within the hybrid system create electricity that is stored in the 300-volt battery. This stored energy moves the vehicle and the regenerative braking cycle is renewed.
First introduced on the 2008 GMC Yukon Hybrid, the two-mode hybrid system provides seamless, dependable power on demand in an efficient package. In fact, its electric motor is about half the size of those in single-mode hybrid systems. This technology was developed for and is still used in hybrid transit buses in more than 70 North American and European cities. Scaled down for use in passenger vehicles, the two-mode system delivers fuel savings where it is needed most – in large vehicles with high levels of capability. The two-mode hybrid system is a core part of GM’s energy diversity efforts, centered on reducing dependence on petroleum, improving fuel economy, reducing emissions and minimizing the automobile’s impact on the environment.
There’s no question about it: GMC Terrain is a hit. Its combination of bold styling and segment-leading fuel efficiency racked up impressive sales numbers in its inaugural year, drawing customers who’d never before purchased a GMC.
An Ecotec 2.4L four-cylinder engine with variable valve timing and direct injection technology helps the Terrain achieve a segment-best EPA-estimated highway fuel economy of 32 mpg. Maximum fuel economy is achieved in part with an “eco” mode that is activated via a console-mounted button. When engaged, it lowers the torque converter lockup speed of the standard six-speed automatic transmission to 1,125 rpm to help save fuel.
A 3.0L DOHC direct injected V-6 engine delivering 264 horsepower (197 kW) is optional; and for 2011 it becomes E85-capable. Like the Ecotec 2.4L, the V-6 is backed by six-speed automatic that helps save fuel through reduced engine speed at highway speeds.
Terrain is offered in front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive models, in SLE and SLT trim levels. All models include four-wheel disc brakes with StabiliTrak electronic stability control and traction control, as well as six standard air bags: dual frontal air bags; head curtain side air bags and pelvic/thorax seat-mounted side air bags.
A comprehensive list of standard and available features includes purposeful technologies such as:
- Standard rear-vision camera that provides a view of objects or people directly behind the vehicle
- Standard USB audio connectivity and MP3 playback for your portable music player – plug it in and control the features right from the radio or the optional steering wheel controls
- Standard XM Satellite Radio, which provides coast-to-coast tunes
- Programmable power liftgate that can be set to open to a lower height, clearing garage obstructions or making it easier to reach for those of shorter stature
- Bluetooth hands-free phone capability, so the driver can remain focused on the road
- Remote vehicle start that can be used to automatically heat up a cold Terrain on a January morning , or cool it down on a hot August afternoon
- Seven-inch touch screen navigation system with touch-screen control, and the screen itself is large enough to safely view at a glance
- Ten-gigabyte hard drive that enables a radio station-like song library to be stored for instant playback through the radio
- DVD-based rear-seat entertainment system with two independent screens and inputs, allowing one viewer to watch a movie and the other to play video games. Front seat passengers can listen to their own entertainment selection up front, thanks to the wireless headphones.
- The Terrain enters the 2011 with an enhanced OnStar 9.0, which delivers improved speech recognition, and a pair of new exterior colors: Steel Blue Metallic and Summit White.

The Yukon and Yukon XL family of full-size SUVs continues to offer an uncompromising package of capability, comfort and refinement. They offer distinctive styling, spacious and refined interiors, exceptional driving characteristics and segment-leading safety features – including standard head curtain side air bags for all seating rows on all models.
Yukon Denali and Yukon XL Denali return for 2011, equipped with style, technologies and luxury features that have made these models so popular.
Changes for 2011 include OnStar 9.0, with Automatic Crash Response, and two new exterior colors: Mocha Steel Metallic and Carbon Black Metallic.
Yukon provides a smooth, confident and secure driving experience, with its 116-inch (2,946 mm) wheelbase, overall length of 202 inches (5,130 mm) and wide track that complements the long wheelbase. Yukon XL models have exterior dimensions similar to the regular models, but are about 14 inches longer in wheelbase and 20 inches more in overall length. Both Yukon and Yukon XL are available in SLE (cloth trim) and SLT trim (leather appointments), as well as 2WD and 4WD configurations. Yukon XL offers a three-quarter-ton model. A third-row seat is standard on all Yukon models.
For improved fuel economy, Yukon and Yukon XL models feature a 5.3L V-8 with GM’s fuel-saving Active Fuel Management technology. The 5.3L and 6.2L engines are capable of running on E85; in fact, all Yukon 4WD and Yukon XL half-ton models come standard with the E85-capable version of the 5.3L V-8. GM vehicles with E85 capability can run on 100-percent gasoline, E85 or any combination of the two.
Yukon Hybrid & Yukon Denali Hybrid
Unique in the market, the GMC Yukon Hybrid and Yukon Denali Hybrid deliver exceptional fuel economy – an estimated 20 mpg in the city – with full-size SUV capability. The vehicles seat up to eight and can tow up to 6,200 pounds (2,812 kg). Electric drive is enabled up to 30 mph (45 km/h), saving fuel even when towing a trailer.
Yukon Hybrid models are built on GM’s full-size SUV platform, which incorporates features such as a fully boxed frame, coil-over-shock front suspension, rack-and-pinion steering and a premium interior that bolsters the vehicle’s comfort, quality and capability. Wide front and rear tracks enhance handling and lower the center of gravity for a more confident road feel.
Standard safety features include StabiliTrak stability control system with rollover mitigation technology and front seat-mounted side air bags.
Minimal changes greet the Yukon Hybrid lineup for 2011. For expanded cell phone compatibility and more robust voice recognition, OnStar is upgraded to Generation 9.0, with Automatic Crash Response. There are also two new exterior colors: Mocha Steel Metallic and Carbon Black Metallic.
Yukon Denli Hybrid
The Yukon Denali Hybrid rides on unique, 22-inch, eight-spoke, flangeless chrome wheels that make a stylish Denali appearance statement.
Inside, designers filled the cabin – available in Ebony or Cashmere – with luxurious amenities such as standard 12-way power, heated/cooled leather-appointed perforated front seating and heated, second-row, leather-appointed bench seating. Available options on this fully equipped vehicle are a sunroof, rear-seat entertainment DVD system and side blind zone alert sensing system and a theft-deterrent steering wheel.
Enhanced connectivity includes standard OnStar with Directions & Connections and Turn-by-Turn Navigation, navigation radio with rear camera system, a Bose Centerpoint Surround Sound System and three years of real-time XM NavTraffic.
A comprehensive safety package of crashworthiness and crash-avoidance features includes front- and side-impact air bags, anti-lock brakes and StabiliTrak with traction control. The Yukon Denali Hybrid also is equipped with GM’s MagnaRide suspension, the first application of this advanced technology in a Yukon. MagnaRide uses magnetic particles in the shock absorber fluid to adjust the damping rate of the shock absorbers – based on road conditions and vehicle dynamics – to help keep tires in contact with the road.
