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. The swinging style sets an audacious mood—and the 2011 Lincoln MKT backs it up with turbo V-6 thrust. If you can look beyond the ambiguous shape of the 2011 Mercedes-Benz R-Class, you'll find it a near-perfect vehicle for the family road trip—especially with the strong, economical BlueTEC diesel engine.
