Power Ranked 2018 Buick Enclave Essence AWD worse.
"In all actuality, they are the exact same under the hood. This could be all in my head but I felt like the Traverse’s “get up and go” was a bit more than the Enclave."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 2018 Buick Enclave Essence AWD worse.
"So they are basically the same here, too. However, the rear exterior angles up more and is more narrow. Where the Traverse stays pretty wide all the way up."
