Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2017 Buick Enclave is a good-looking SUV for families and one of the better-aging GM cars in recent memory.The Buick Enclave has lived longer than many thought it would. Crossover SUVs are hot properties these days, and aging models typically don't perform as well in the showroom as newer models.
But the Enclave has been killing it, remaining one of Buick's best sellers almost a decade down the road. It's our favorite of GM's big front-drive-based utility vehicles, which also includes its siblings, the Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia.

Pros
Classy exterior
Spacious second row captain's chairs
Quality materials
Smooth ride

Cons
Nosedive in braking
Can add up in options
Lagging behind in fuel economy

Do you need a big three-row crossover SUV that can shuttle lots of people and cargo? The 2017 Buick Enclave could be for you. Besides its utilitarian abilities, it's also pleasant to drive. But read more to learn why some rival models might serve you better.
The 2017 Buick Enclave gets a new Sport Touring edition with a satin black grille and distinctive 20-inch chromed alloy wheels with satin black detailing.

Pros
Smooth ride even when the road isn't
Seating for up to eight and cargo space to match
Peace of mind that comes with top safety scores.

Cons
It's a big crossover and drives like one
Disappointing acceleration and fuel economy
Infotainment and climate controls are behind the times
Interior quality could leave some wanting more.

The 2017 Buick Enclave ranks 10 out of 18 Midsize SUVs. In spite of segment-leading cargo space, a handsome interior, and a rich offering of standard equipment, the Buick Enclave sits in the middle of the midsize SUV segment because its V6 can struggle under a full load.

Pros
Composed, comfortable ride
Spacious seating for up to eight
Lots of room for cargo

Cons
Fuel economy is below average

If you've got a lot to haul, the GMC Yukon range is one of the best ways to do it. But if not, consider a crossover that will use much less fuel and be better to drive.
Its spec sheet may read like an SUV from a different era, but the 2017 GMC Yukon range is a highly-refined passenger, cargo, and trailer-hauler that makes a compelling choice to those who need to carry around more than just the family.

Pros
Refined demeanor
Sauve interior
Denali's Magnetic Ride Control
Automatic emergency braking

Cons
Expensive, especially with options
Third row folds flat but takes up a lot of room
A crossover may make more sense for many

By:

For 2017, the GMC Yukon receives low-speed automatic braking paired with the existing forward collision warning system and a teen-driver management system. Cooled seats have now been replaced with ventilated seats, the rear entertainment system input has been updated, and a head-up display is standard on the Denali trim.

Pros
Seating for up to nine passengers
Standard V8 engine delivers ample passing power and a stout tow rating
Clean cabin design is one of the best in the class
Available two-speed transfer case gives the Yukon the ability to tackle difficult off-road terrain.

Cons
High cargo floor height makes loading bulky items difficult
Hard to maneuver in tight spaces
Less cargo room than car-based SUVs of similar size
Maximum passenger capacity is available only in the base model
Engine doesn't respond to gas pedal inputs quickly enough.

The 2017 GMC Yukon ranks 3 out of 6 Large SUVs. The GMC Yukon gets high scores and a high ranking in the small – but fierce – large SUV class. Its strong performance and attractive interior keep it ranked above most other options.

Pros
Decent power
Stellar fuel economy for the class
Premium interior materials
Large cargo hold in XL trim

Cons
Slow-to-shift six-speed transmission
Limited cargo space in non-XL models
