The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.0
8.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The Enclave is a smooth, comfortable vehicle suitable for large families. The 2016 Chrysler Town & Country piles a lavish amount of equipment and luxury touches into an aging body that suffers in the toughest crash tests. The 2016 Ford Flex remains a singularly boxy and handsome SUV, with excellent interior room and safety scores.
