Yes. I see lots of Enclave/Arcadia/Traverse toads. We had one for a while.

It's listed in the Dinghy Towing guide put out by Motorhome Magazine, but you should always look in the owners manual that comes with the vehicle to be sure. If it's flat towable it will say so in the manual and tell you what needs to be done before and during towing.

We tow our 2010 Acadia - no problems. Pull the fuse in the manual and you're good to go after running the engine for 5 minutes. I installed a switch to prevent having to remove the fuse - way easier. Run the engine for 5 minutes before departue to lube the transmission - flip the switch, and you're ready to tow.

The 2013,s require 3 fuses to be pulled. 13 Enclave manuals on line, search 2013 Buick Enclave owners manual. Just received my Blue Ox baseplate last week and looking forward to the install next week, still need to make a decision on how to set up wiring. Choices are drill into tail lights or to run stand alone tail lights. Mounted on the hitch on the back of the Enclave. Will run a charge wire to keep car batts charged.

This is our 4th Blue Ox baseplate, 3 I did or will do. The first we gave to a hitch shop and their install failed. So, I do them myself, PIA, but I sleep better
PS I save 300.00 by installing and wiring myself

We tow 2013 Acadia, blue ox plate. Pull 3 fuses and your on your way. We used diodes for the wiring and have no issues, and no dead batteries. It's a great car to tow.
