The new model is expected to hit the market in the US market for the model year 2020 The Buick Encore GX introduced a new design, along with aesthetic enhancements, like body-colored moldings and aggressive rear and front bumpers accented with red, which differentiates it from the regular Encore.
Due to its size, it’s size, Buick Encore GX fits perfectly in between the compact Encore and the larger Envision SUV. Apart from sharing the VSS-F platform of GM along with the Chevrolet Trailblazer, there were no improvements to the mechanicals from the main lineup, and it came with the 137 horsepower 1.2-liter turbocharged three-cylinder as well as the more powerful 155-hp 1.3-liter turbocharged three-cylinder. The model year 2021 version also included the wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto the standard features list, as well as satellite radio. 2022 saw a new engine with the Essence trim. There were no significant changes to the 2023 model, aside from the demise of the Encore model, the GX was the first to be the largest Buick crossover, as well as a solid introduction to crossover ownership.
It appears that the Buick Encore GX may be at the point of having a complete overhaul for the 2024’s model year. The new model will feature a new rear and front design, topped with brand-new badge interior design enhancements, perhaps an additional infotainment screen, and other features in the cabin.
2024 Buick Encore GX Redesign
Buick has embarked on a mission to enhance the appeal of its often not-so-great products. It is why it makes sense for the forthcoming Encore GX subcompact vehicle to receive new aesthetic upgrades front and rear to increase the curb appeal.
The new design could closely resemble the Envista which emphasized Buick’s brand-new style, with the headlamps positioned lower inside faux corner vents, and the slim daytime running lamps on top. Alongside the new Buick logo as well, it is expected that the Encore GX will feature the familiar shields of the brand. The complete exterior redesign of Buick Encore GX Buick Encore GX remains somewhat of a mystery at the moment.
Regarding the interior space, We don’t anticipate any major changes in 2024. As we’ve mentioned that for 2023 the Buick Encore GX offers 40.9 and 36 inches of rear and front legroom, respectively. The capacity for cargo starts at 23.5 cubic feet when all seats are used and increase up to 50.2 cubic feet when the rear seats are removed. This is smaller contrasted with the 2023 Kia Seltos offering 43.1 as well as 38.0 inches of legroom in the rear and front and 26.6 up to 62.8 cubic feet of space for cargo. The 2023 Ford Bronco is equipped with 42.4 as well as 36.9 inches of rear and front legroom and up to 65.2 cubic yards of space for cargo space.
However, it is expected that the 2024 Encore GX will get a significant update for front-seat passengers. In 2023, the Buick Encore GX is equipped with an array of technological features. We can expect the current standard CarPlay, Android Auto, and Wi-Fi hotspot will be available for the next model year. Additionally, the company could incorporate an auxiliary gauge as well as informationtainment displays that are arranged under one glass. In addition to a fresh dashboard layout, the driver’s display may have a smaller display that includes a tachometer that has an engraved dial and an easy-to-read numerical display to show speed and other information.
Features such as active noise cancellation and the traditional push-button start are likely to remain. There will be features available such as parking assistance, LCD head-up display along with premium Bose audio.
Similar to the model year 2023, the highest-spec Buick Encore GX models will come with the identical 1.3-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine that produces 155 horsepower and 173 pound-feet of torque. The lower-end models will feature a weaker 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine that produces an impressive 137 horsepower as well as 162 pounds of torque.
Although the FWD model comes with CVT, the AWD layout is powered by a nine-speed auto transmission. When AWD is enabled 2023 Buick Encore GX goes from 60 to 0 speed in less than 9.3 seconds. However, it isn’t as fast as a result of the heavy AWD configuration.
Regarding fuel efficiency In terms of fuel economy, it is estimated that the 2023 Buick Encore with the 1.3-liter engine can deliver 29 mpg in the city and 32 mpg along the highway when equipped with FWD. The numbers are down from 26 to 29 mpg when using AWD. When using the 1.2-liter engine the highway performance is 31 mpg. It also has a similar city fuel efficiency rating. A towing capability of 1000 pounds will also be carried over.
