Nope, Convenience Group isn't an options package. It's the least expensive version of the Enclave, just below Leather Group and Premium Group. Closely related to the Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia, Enclave's niche in the crossover world is to deliver upscale amenities and passenger experience for less than the luxury brands. We think that, for the most part, it succeeds. We are disappointed that you must spend another $4,000 to step up to the Leather Group to get blind-spot warning and cross-traffic alert. Otherwise, the Convenience Group is loaded with goodies like power liftgate, rear parking sensors and rearview camera, remote starting and tri-zone automatic climate control.  It comes with a 288-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6, six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive.
