More than reasonable for a 5000 lb vehicle. Benefits of aero design ( for an SUV ) and six speed transmission both contribute. see full Buick Enclave review

Buick Enclave Real Gas Mileage: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2011 0 The fuel economy is abysmal and as far as I know, Buick STILL doesn't offer a hybrid option. The best mileage I've been able to get on long road trips with mostly highway driving is 22-23 mpg. City driving, however, stubbornly stays at 14-15 mpg, no matter what I do! :( see full Buick Enclave review

Well under (15-20%) below the EPA ratings, though the engine is STILL brand new (<400 miles total). see full Buick Enclave review

This is the one thing that is a weak point. at 12-16 MPG, this car could use a larger and more efficient engine. Had GM not folded, there was talks of a hybrid version (which still may come out as a Caddy) which we would definitely buy without hesitation. see full Buick Enclave review

Hey, at $4.00/gallon getting only 22 mpg hurts. We take the econo-car most of the time. see full Buick Enclave review
