The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
9.2
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
A singular look, along with top-shelf turbo power and features, earns the 2011 Ford Flex our top score among utility vehicles. 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.
