2020 buick encore

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

The Encore GX is powered by two different turbocharged three-cylinder engines. The base version is a 1.2-liter that develops 137 horsepower followed by an optional 1.3-liter that makes 155 ponies. The former pairs with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) and front-wheel drive. While the more powerful engine is available on fancier front-drive models, it’s included on every Encore GX with all-wheel drive. Likewise, the slightly bigger engine exclusively uses a nine-speed automatic transmission. While the larger Envision has a pillowy ride and confident handling, we won’t be able to evaluate the Encore GX until we drive it.


People Also Ask

Are the Buick Encore and Chevy Trax the same?

They share many things. They’re both subcompact-crossover SUVs from General Motors with the same drivetrain and platform. But the Buick is more upscale in terms of equipment and comfort. For instance, it has about half an inch more suspension travel.

Is the 2020 Buick Encore good in the snow?

It depends how bad the snow is. But let’s assume it’s not so deep that the snowplow driver can’t get to work. The Encore has a ground clearance of 6.22 inches, about an inch more than the average sedan. Front-wheel drive, with the weight of the engine contributing to traction, is the Encore’s basic setup and should be sufficient, especially with winter tires. The optional all-wheel-drive system provides extra weight, more grip, and therefore more stability and reassurance.

What’s the difference between the Buick Encore and the new Buick Encore GX?

The GX version is a different vehicle. It’s still a crossover SUV, but it’s slightly bigger and roomier than the regular Encore. Yes, it would have been nice if someone at General Motors had spent an extra five minutes trying to come up with a name that wasn’t confusing.

Buick offers several attractive and comfortable crossovers, and the all-new Encore GX occupies the smaller end of that spectrum. The 2020 Buick Encore GX initially sounds as if it were a trim level that is offered on the subcompact Buick Encore, but it is actually its own, bigger model positioned below the compact Buick Envision. The Encore GX gives Buick another entry in the ever-popular crossover market, with its purposeful design and efficient packaging. It will likely be mechanically similar to the recently introduced Chevrolet Trailblazer, and the Encore GX will go on sale in early 2020.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo

Based on the first official image of the Encore GX’s interior, it will offer a two-tone color scheme and some snazzy features. We expect a quiet cabin, featuring leather upholstery, heated seats, and more passenger space than the smaller Encore. Buick’s positioning in the market straddles the line between luxury and mainstream, so it’s likely to be better equipped than base-level versions of rivals such as the Nissan Kicks and Subaru Crosstrek. The Encore GX’s front-passenger seat folds flat to aid in loading longer items and we expect the rear cargo area to be more generous than the smaller Encore.

Причины не покупать Buick Encore 2019 года — минусы

Говорят, что стандартный 1,4-литровый четырехцилиндровый двигатель с турбонаддувом в Buick Encore 2019 немного вялый. 138-сильному двигателю не хватает ускорения, хотя он лучше среднего бензинового. Существует вариант обновления, но вы не можете получить его на базовом уровне отделки салона. Хотя Энкор, возможно, не самый агрессивный вариант вождения в категории, он позволяет покупателям повысить его на ступени при переходе на спортивный двигатель.

2. Некоторые не хотят доплачивать за малолитражный внедорожник.

Цена базовой комплектации Buick Encore 2019 — около $ 23000, максимальной версии — чуть более $ 30000. Бьюик приложил много усилий, чтобы сделать автомобиль Энкор очень высокого качества. Цена базовой модели немного выше, чем у сопоставимых моделей других производителей, но качество и стандартные функции могут иметь значение для некоторых покупателей.

3. Не очень много улучшений в 2019 году.

Buick Encore 2019 практически не обновлялся с момента его редизайна в 2017 году. Он по-прежнему имеет высококачественные элементы дизайна и стандартные функции, но некоторых покупателей может оттолкнуть отсутствие улучшений. Когда он был переработан в 2017 году, то занял первое место в категории. С тех пор мало что изменилось.
