That's the ugliest pic of the Tahoe I've ever seen. My vote would go for the Tahoe, but the CX-9 is nice. Still can't figure out why they have the real exhaust inside a fake chome exhaust pipe.

I would honestly say the Buick will win.

Though if I were choosing my favorite of the three, I'd go with the Tahoe. Dad had one as a loaner car back in the spring. People just move out of your way on the road.

I say Tahoe because of the Two Mode system. Enclave is a dressed up Acadia. CX-9 is a good vehicle, but it doesn't redefine it's segment like the Two Mode Tahoe does.

I say the journalists will choose the Enclave. However, I prefer the Mazda out of the three.

These are the finalists. I am sure the new Dodge and Ford "trucks" were considered, but didn't make it this far.

Neither have vehicles that look as nice as those above 3. Dodge design teams suck. They have the ugliest designs every year.

Ford, doesn't have anything that could compete with the styling of the above either.

Exactly.

I'd take a 4Runner though, the design is old but still one of my favorite SUV choices if I had to buy something right now.

Buick looks good, but I hate Buick... I had a 2002 rendezvous and everything all at once broke, all wheel-drive, ac system broke, tranny problems, passenger door that wasn't attached properly, dash melted in, suspension gone and engine light from hell that wouldn't go away. This all happened in two years... what a piece of s#@%!

Surprised my BMW dealer took it in and I bought an X5! Let me say its a different world now...

I am surprised. A sporty designed CUV beats the technological wonder that is the Two Mode Tahoe. Not sure about I agree with the voters priorities. A 5500 lb SUV getting 20 MPG city is more significant then Mazda designing a sporty looking CUV, IMHO.

Sorry but all of them,

Wow, who picked them

I'd take Tundra or a 4Runner any day compared.

I guess it is bases on the "American consumer" of which I think none of us are.

49 auto journalists picked them. They come from edmunds, C&D, MT, etc. Why would you pick a 4Runner? That thing is aging and the Tundra brings nothing new to the truck market besides a competitive Japanese truck. Please leave your Toyota bias at the door and look at the vehicles presented and what they bring to the market badge snob.
