TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Buick Enclave hones its appeal with beautiful style, much-improved handling, and no-nonsense technology. The 2018 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is a winner, combining our favorite minivan with a fuel-efficient plug-in hybrid powertrain and useful 33-mile electric range The 2018 Ford Flex still stamps a unique silhouette on the crossover world.
