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).

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Buick Enclave transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Lexus RX 450h.
