Talking Cars (MP3)

Is Buick Enclave the hidden gem of the large 3-row SUV world? With a resume that includes simple controls, a comfortable ride, and a responsive non-turbo powertrain, there's a case to be made that it deserves serious consideration. We discuss the recent updates to its steering wheel controls, gear selector, and infotainment system for the 2022 model year, and how it performs against competitors like the Infiniti QX60, Jeep Grand Cherokee L, Acura MDX, and Hyundai Palisade. Also, what happens when you try to turn off a vehicle while driving? Does it make a difference if it's a traditional key, or a push button start? After being asked the question from a member of our audience, our experts head out onto our test track to find out!
