Rose Bowl or Bust

Buick Enclave takes us on a cross-country run for the ages to the centennial Pasadena game.

Our intrepid correspondent drove a 2014 Buick Enclave like this one from Detroit to Pasadena.

For more than a century, college football fans have packed their gear and headed out across the land to the “Grand Daddy of Them All,” the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California.

What began as a midwinter event to promote southern California tourism has grown into one of sports most heralded annual events, replete with a week’s worth of team and fan activities, a five-mile-long parade and a football showdown that makes even a non-fan’s bucket list. So when the opportunity presented itself to attend the 100th playing of said game, complete with all the pomp and pageantry, we jumped at the chance to become a rolling media stunt of our own.

Take a close look at the Enclave the next time you see one on the street. Is there another crossover on the market that has curves around its wheel wells like the Enclave? Narrows in the middle? Wears its jewelry so elegantly? Well, Mazda’s CX-9 – not to mention the smaller CX-7 – have curves, but they tend toward athleticism, not elegance.

Even though the big Buick has been on the market for more than 3 years, surprisingly no other automaker has followed Buick’s lead. And despite so much time on the market, the Enclave still looks fresh.
