The 2018 Enclave builds on Buick's popular three-row SUV in a smart way.

That is to say, it takes all the stuff that wasn't so great about the last one and takes steps to remedy it.

The new Enclave borrows its design direction from Buick's 2017 Avista coupe concept, as well as everything that came after it, like the new Regal and LaCrosse models.

The new Enclave is a handsome vehicle.

I'm not entirely sold on its "floating" D-pillar look on the side.

It comes with a 3.6-liter V6 that puts out 310 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque.

Whether the Enclave packs front-wheel drive or optional all-wheel drive, acceleration is ample, with a neat little engine note popping up when you really lay into the gas.

The transmission works its way through the gears with such smoothness that it's hard to discern when it's shifting unless you're listening for it.

The inside is a damned sensory deprivation chamber, with thick laminated glass that all but kills outside noise when driving around town.

Compared to the old one, it's much easier on the eyes both inside and out, and it rides nicer, too.
