Cargo & Towing

GM's trio of three-row crossovers excels at carrying cargo, especially behind the third row, where many competitors fall short. The Enclave has 18.9 cubic feet of room behind the third row, which is more than the Mazda CX-9 (17.2 cubic feet) and Hyundai Veracruz (13.4 cubic feet) offer. In fairness, the Enclave is also a larger car.

With the Enclave's 60/40-split third row folded flat, there's 66 cubic feet of luggage space, which is more than a Chevrolet Tahoe's 60.3 cubic feet. Achieving the maximum capacity of 115.1 cubic feet requires also folding the second-row backrests down.

When properly equipped, the Enclave can tow a maximum of 4,500 pounds. This is better than both the CX-9's and Veracruz's 3,500-pound maximum, but falls well short of what a body-on-frame SUV like the Tahoe can pull (8,200 pounds).
