With no disrespect aimed at the Ford Explorer, but the 2014 Buick Enclave has really taken its place as a leading Buick vehicle. The company's engineers and designers have really taken all of the best parts of a Buick sedan and expanded them to fit in a full-size SUV like the 2014 Enclave. Among the most talked about features of the Enclave is the interior that is covered with some of the most premium materials that have ever been placed in an automobile. Additionally the 2014 Enclave reflects its Buick heritage by offering the tell-tale pillow-soft ride that the premium automaker has become known for providing.

From a mechanical standpoint, the 2014 Buick Enclave and the 2014 Ford Explorer are very similar. Both are powered by V-6 engines that produce about 290 horsepower. However, where the 2014 Enclave starts to pull away from the Explorer is in overall space. The Buick SUV is built to transport up to eight passengers with very strong eye toward keeping everyone as comfortable. This also has implications for cargo hauling. When the rear two rows of seats are folded down, the Enclave has 116.3 cubic-feet of space available. The Explorers cargo space tops out at 80 cubic-feet.
