The Buick Encore has a few notable updates for the 2022 model year. Here is a closer look at what you can expect in the well-equipped small SUV, which will be available later this summer at Sunrise Buick GMC at Wolfchase in Memphis, Tennessee.
The 2022 Buick Encore offers one trim level, Preferred, leaving the base trim option a thing of the past. The Encore, which continues to provide comfortable seating and space for five, boasts an MSRP of $25,795 when equipped with FWD, and $26, 415 when equipped with AWD.*
The updated Encore offers increased horsepower and torque ratings for a peppier ride and more enjoyable, responsive performance. The ECOTEC 1.4-liter turbo engine pairs to a six-speed automatic transmission to generate 155 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque. This is a horsepower increase of 17 and torque rating increase of 29 compared to the 2021 Buick Encore.
Other than these changes, the 2022 Buick Encore hits the market relatively unchanged, delivering you the impressive reliability, versatility, and comfort features you expect from the practical SUV.
The Buick Encore has been a popular model for years and has often been one of the best-selling vehicles in the subcompact crossover segment. Since June, Buick has been producing the new 2021 Encore, which shows promise of continuing the model’s success.
The Bupyeong production plant stopped producing the 2020 Encore on May 29. Then, on June 1, the plant began producing the 2021 model. Based on the production start date, it’s expected that the 2021 Encore will be released in the spring of 2021.
The 2021 Encore is set to share many family-friendly features with the 2020 model and have some small changes. The new crossover is reducing its number of trim levels and will only be carrying over the base and Preferred trims.
Three new color options will be available for the 2021 Encore, and two color options are disappearing. In addition, the model will now come with Forward Collision Alert to provide your family with extra peace of mind when driving around Memphis, Tennessee.
We at Sunrise Buick GMC at Wolfchase look forward to adding the 2021 Buick Encore to our inventory next year. If you don’t want to wait until then to purchase a new family hauler, check out the different Buick models we currently have available online.
All-New Encore GX to Feature Three-Cylinder Engine
It was recently revealed that the upcoming 2020 Buick Encore GX is expected to feature an all-new three-cylinder engine, marking the return of one of GM’s innovative engines.
Three-Cylinder Engine: General Motors announced that the new 2020 Buick Encore GX would utilize a three-cylinder 1.3L engine. Though three-cylinder Buicks have recently been produced for other markets, this marks the first time in nearly 20 years that GM has offered a vehicle with a three-cylinder engine in North America. New technological innovations, including updated waste gates and water pumps, mean these engines will be peppier and more fuel-efficient than past iterations.
All-New Encore GX: The all-new Encore GX’s three-cylinder engine isn’t the only thing the small SUV has going for it. The Encore GX, which aims to fill the gap between the compact Encore and the small Envision, will come with standard safety features like Automatic Emergency Braking and Lane Keep Assist. Other available features include a Rear Camera Mirror and HD Surround Vision Camera. Additionally, the Encore GX is expected to offer five more cubic feet of cargo space than the Encore.
The all-new 2020 Buick Encore GX is expected to arrive on dealership lots in early 2020. Call a team member at Sunrise Buick GMC at Wolfchase today so you can be the first to know when the SUV arrives.
