Fuel economy looks mediocre overall, but balanced against the Enclave's passenger-toting capacity, it's quite good.

Expert Quotes:

2014 Buick Enclave: 17 mpg city, 24 mpg highway, 19 mpg combined with front-wheel drive; 16/22/18 mpg with all-wheel drive
EPA

averaged 16.7-17.6 mpg, disappointing results in testing that included a slight bias toward highway travel
ConsumerGuide

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
Newsday


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.

Conclusion

Fuel economy looks mediocre overall, but balanced against the Enclave's passenger-toting capacity, it's quite good.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
