Although aimed at very different customers, GM’s three large crossovers—the elegant Buick Enclave, Professional Grade GMC Acadia and family-friendly Chevrolet Traverse—do have a lot in common. Spacious cabins, class-leading fuel efficiency, long lists of standard content and impressive driving dynamics are all in the mix, and now there’s something else: The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) recently reported that all three had been named Top Safety Picks for 2011.
It’s an important third-party recognition that can have a big impact on the shopping process, and it’s only given to vehicles with both electronic stability control and the highest possible scores in IIHS evaluations of front, side, rear and rollover impact protection. And passing was tougher than ever this year, since the IIHS instituted new, more rigorous guidelines for roof-strength as part of its 2011 rollover testing.
