TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2011 Buick Enclave no longer feels fresh, but it's still one of the most luxurious, passenger-friendly, and uniquely American family crossover wagons. A singular look, along with top-shelf turbo power and features, earns the 2011 Ford Flex our top score among utility vehicles.
