TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2017 Buick Enclave is a good-looking SUV for families and one of the better-aging GM cars in recent memory. The 2017 Chrysler Pacifica plays to all the traditional minivan strengths, while it strikes out in exciting new directions in styling and in plug-in hybrid technology. The 2017 Ford Flex is a spacious family hauler with a style all its own. It lacks the fuel economy of some of the competitors, but beauty doesn't come without effort.
