2012 Buick Enclave
The 2012 Buick Enclave is a full-size crossover that drives more like a big sedan than a truck-based sport-utility vehicle. This is an impressive accomplishment given that the Buick Enclave can seat up to eight passengers as well as haul as much as 116 cubic feet of cargo with the rear rows of accommodations out of the picture.
The 2012 Buick Enclave is gifted with a hearty 3.6-liter V-6 engine that has been tuned to provide 288 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque. Front-wheel drive is standard with the crossover but all-wheel drive is available as an option, and a six-speed automatic transmission comes with either version of the vehicle.

The Jeep Grand Cherokee can seat as many as five passengers and swallow up to 69 cubic feet of cargo, and it can also be equipped with trail-oriented packages that install a range of aggressive four-wheel drive systems, hill descent control, an air suspension system that offers adjustable ride height and of course skid plates and an electronic limited-slip differential.
The 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee is initially provided with a 3.6-liter V-6 that puts out 290 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque while returning fuel mileage of 17 miles per gallon around town and 23 miles per gallon on the highway. A 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 can also be specified in the Grand Cherokee, and it ups the performance ante through the introduction of 360 ponies and 390 lb-ft of twist. Fuel economy for the larger engine drops somewhat to 14 miles per gallon city and 20 miles highway. Four-wheel drive is available with the SUV (as previously mentioned), and a five-speed automatic is the only gearbox to be found on either version of the Jeep.
