2016 Buick Enclave Gets OnStar 4G LTE

Other Lambda Models Expected To Follow

May 18, 2015
General Motors has been one of the most aggressive of the major auto manufacturers over the last few years in rolling out integrated 4G LTE connectivity in its cars. The majority of models in the company’s lineup offer the feature as standard or optional. However, the one holdout has been GM’s large Lambda crossover models, including the Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse, and GMC Acadia. Because the platform dates back to 2007, integration of the system likely proved more of a challenge than on newer models. Starting with the 2016 Buick Enclave, and presumably the other 2016 Lambda models, one of the last remaining holes in GM’s lineup for high-speed mobile data connectivity will soon be filled.
Vehicles equipped with the feature come with three months/three gigabytes of complimentary trial data service. The system also includes six months of OnStar Directions and Connections service. All OnStar-equipped vehicles also include five years of basic service including RemoteLink, allowing owners to lock and unlock the car remotely through a data connection, as well as vehicle diagnostic reports. Similar to Apple’s “Find a Friend,” the FamilyLink feature allows authorized users to check the location of a subscribed vehicle. The 2016 Enclave will go on sale later in 2015.
