The 2016 Buick Enclave is now offered as standard with OnStar 4G LTE connectivity, which includes a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot that can be used simultaneously by up to seven devices.
The connectivity upgrade for the Enclave brings 4G LTE and the Wi-Fi hotspot to the entire 2016 Buick model range, from Encore and Verano to Regal and LaCrosse – including the all-new Cascada convertible. The Wi-Fi hotspot works whenever the vehicle is on and comes with a three-month/three-gigabyte data trial.
“Customers’ daily lives are so entwined with personal devices, so the addition of OnStar 4G LTE and its integral Wi-Fi hotspot is a feature they will rely on,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president of Buick. “It allows busy people to stay connected throughout the day and provides another outlet for passenger entertainment on long trips,” he added.
4G LTE is 10 times faster than 3G and 100 times faster than the previous generation of OnStar hardware. GM says it also offers stronger, broader coverage than smartphones on the same network.
All Enclave models are fitted as standard with Buick’s IntelliLink color touch radio which offers a higher level of wireless connectivity and customized options.
Buick is also offering six months of OnStar Directions and Connections service. This includes the RemoteLink Mobile App, which allows smartphone users to control vehicle functions, access vehicle information and send directions directly to the vehicle.
