Last year General Motors proved it was still king of the full-size utility market by wining our Best Crossover Utility honors for the GMC Acadia and Saturn Outlook. The Acadia and Outlook retain the title this year and are joined by another member of the GM family, the new Buick Enclave. All built on GM's advanced Lambda platform, these potent 7 and 8 passenger haulers offer everything from day-to-day utility, to full boat luxury. All are available in either front or all-wheel-drive, and draw power from a refined twin-cam variable timing V6 6-speed drivetrain. But while full-size inside, they drive smaller. And they offer every amusement a modern family could demand, for prices that won't drive your clan to the poor house.
