Whether you’re heading to the store or work, you'll want to be sure your SUV can take you there. The 2023 Enclave and the 2023 Highlander are both respectable when it comes to fuel efficiency, but the Enclave pulls ahead when it comes to engine performance.

However, the Enclave's and the Highlander’s engines are just one facet of their ability to do this. Both models can be equipped with available all-wheel drive, which delivers the stability you desire.

Your ride will feel effortless in the Buick thanks to a 9-speed automatic transmission. The Toyota comes close behind with an 8-speed transmission.
