A powerful yet eco-efficient 2.0L 4-cylinder engine generates 173 hp and 154 lb.-ft. of torque. The aluminum engine block and head with DOHC, 16 valves and Dual-CVVT improve torque and fuel economy with an EPA-estimated 34 Highway MPG.
A sweet-shifting 6-speed manual is standard. The available 6-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC® has a lock-up torque converter for higher fuel economy at freeway speeds.
Signature chrome portholes are luxurious details that show the craftsmanship of the Encore body while appealing to your stylish taste as well.
The jewel-like projector beam headlamps show you the way. They also feature the signature Buick ice-blue translucent ring accent, contributing to the beautiful Encore exterior. Light up the way in style.
Enjoy as much sunshine as you want at the touch of a button with the power moonroof available in the Encore. The included shade helps control the cabin temperature, so everyone stays cool and comfortable.
A set of two cross rails conveniently attaches to the roof of the Encore, giving you greater cargo-carrying capacity and flexibility. They’re also lockable so you can feel confident in their security.
The memory driver’s seat lets you save your seat adjustments at the push of a button — it can save memory settings for up to two drivers, in case you’re not the only one driving your Encore. One less thing for you to do means you can be on your way faster, and in comfort.
Who says you can’t please everyone? With the dual-zone automatic climate control system, your front passenger has the freedom to set their own temperature, while you maintain one that keeps you comfortable and relaxed.
When your needs change, the Encore adapts easily. The front-passenger and second-row seats fold flat to help you carry objects of various shapes and sizes – up to 8 feet in length– easily. Even with friends in the back, you still have up to 18.8 cubic feet of cargo space to play with.
Enjoy the soothing warmth of heated, leather-appointed driver and front-passenger seats. The shape of the seats supports the natural curve of your back, so you can drive comfortably and confidently.
Buick will warrant each Buick passenger car, light duty truck - for 6 years or 70,000 miles/110,000 kms. with no deductible, whichever comes first, from the original in-service date of the vehicle, for warrantable repairs which are required as a result of defects due to material and/or workmanship to the Powertrain components.
Encore has your back — when you put the Encore in reverse, available Rear Cross Traffic Alert uses radar to detect vehicles approaching, and alerts you when one comes within 65 feet on either side.
If there’s a chance you’re approaching the vehicle ahead of you too quickly, Forward Collision Alert senses it and alerts you with both an audio and visual warning. It’s like having an extremely alert copilot.
You’ll appreciate the number of ways the Encore helps protect you. Ten air bags come standard in the Encore — including frontal, head curtain side air bags, front and outboard rear-seat side-impact air bags and front knee air bags.
