Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Buick Enclave than in the Lexus GX 460. The Buick Enclave will be popular with taller drivers and passengers in the front seat, due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Lexus GX 460.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Buick Enclave, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Lexus GX 460.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Buick Enclave will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Lexus GX 460. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Buick Enclave is much higher than that for the Lexus GX 460.

Dimensions
Since the Buick Enclave is much wider than the Lexus GX 460, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Buick Enclave, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Lexus GX 460.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Buick Enclave doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Lexus GX 460.

Handling
The Buick Enclave has a larger turning radius than the Lexus GX 460, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Buick Enclave and the Lexus GX 460. With the Buick Enclave, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Lexus GX 460.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Buick Enclave is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Lexus GX 460.
