2014 Buick Enclave: 17 mpg city, 24 mpg highway, 19 mpg combined with front-wheel drive; 16/22/18 mpg with all-wheel drive
averaged 16.7-17.6 mpg, disappointing results in testing that included a slight bias toward highway travel
The Enclave also runs fine on regular gas; several luxury competitors recommend or require premium.
average fuel economy of 18.6 miles per gallon over seven days wasn't impressive considering...90 percent of my driving was on the highway
The 2015 Buick Enclave hasn't yet been rated by EPA, though we expect to see matching fuel economy figures from last year's model.
Last year, front-wheel-drive models earned 17-mpg city, 24-mpg highway, and a combined 19 miles per gallon. While that's not far off from other vehicles in its class, those numbers can be hard to swallow when so many family sedans today earn upwards of 35 mpg on the highway.
In our experience, the EPA numbers seem a little optimistic, based on the real-world observations of our editors along with other review sources. In our last significant stint with a previous mode-year Enclave, we saw an indicated 17 mpg over a range of driving conditions.
The Enclave's ratings fall to 16/22 mpg or 18 mpg combined when it's fitted with all-wheel drive.
Fuel economy looks mediocre overall, but balanced against the Enclave's passenger-toting capacity, it's quite good.
