If you’re looking for a capable, comfortable SUV for your family, you may be torn between the Buick Enclave and the GMC Acadia here at Freehold Buick GMC. Both are equally good options and share many similarities, but there are some notable ways in which they differ that may make one family vehicle more suitable for you than the other.
Although both models are classified as midsize SUVs, the Enclave is a bit bigger than the Acadia. When it comes to cargo volume and passenger space, the Enclave offers about 20 additional cubic feet of room due to extra width and length. This makes the Enclave more spacious for bigger passengers and larger luggage loads but harder to maneuver through the more crowded areas of New Jersey.
One of the other major Enclave and Acadia differences is their different engine options. The Enclave and Acadia both offer the same-size 310-horsepower V6, but the Acadia also offers two smaller four-cylinder engines that achieve high fuel efficiency rates. So if you want an SUV that goes light on fuel consumption, check out the 2.0-liter turbo motor on the Acadia.
Being a bigger and power-oriented SUV, the spacious Buick Enclave costs a bit more than the Acadia does. The difference in suggested retail price between their basic entry-level versions is roughly $10,000.* You still get most of the same safety and tech features on both models, even at the cost difference.
