Talking Cars 377: Driving the 2022 Buick Enclave

By Mike Monticello

Main theme: This week we share our impressions of the refreshed-for-2022 Buick Enclave. Between its comfortable ride, extra-roomy cabin, and powerful V6, our panel ponders whether the Enclave is a hidden gem among midsized three-row SUVs. We also discuss updates specific to the 2022 model, including the new infotainment screen and steering-wheel controls. And we question just how much of an improvement the new push-pull button gear selector is compared with the unintuitive version it replaces.

Audience question: What happens if I accidentally turn my car off while I’m driving? And why would automakers allow this to even be possible?
