2017 Buick Enclave vs. 2016 Lexus GX 460 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Buick Enclave than in the Lexus GX 460. The Buick Enclave will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Lexus GX 460.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Buick Enclave as you will with the Lexus GX 460, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Buick Enclave will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Lexus GX 460. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Buick Enclave and the Lexus GX 460 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Buick Enclave is much wider than the Lexus GX 460, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Buick Enclave, which is slightly longer than the Lexus GX 460.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Buick Enclave doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Lexus GX 460.

Handling
The Buick Enclave has a larger turning radius than the Lexus GX 460, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Lexus GX 460 is clearly the choice over the Buick Enclave for pulling heavy loads. The Buick Enclave has a little less horsepower than the Lexus GX 460.

Utility
The Buick Enclave offers greater seating capacity than the Lexus GX 460, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With the Buick Enclave, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Lexus GX 460.

Warranty
The Buick Enclave comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus GX 460.
