Rear Design: The rear design of the Buick Encore GX brings its sleek and distinctive styling and poised, streamlined presence into sharp focus.
Available Hands-Free Power liftgate with LED Logo Projection: When your hands are full, let the available hands-free power liftgate with LED logo projection give you an assist. With the keyless entry fob in your pocket, simply kicking your foot under the logo projection provides access to the cargo area.
Inside, the Encore GX embodies the quality cabin experience that Buick customers expect, including the brand’s signature QuietTuning, which helps to minimize road noise inside the vehicle, as well as premium materials and available features, like leather-appointed seats, a heated steering wheel and an ionizing air filter.
Available dual-zone climate controls allow both the driver and front passenger to personalize their preferred temperatures. Combat cooler temperatures with the soothing warmth of the available heated driver and front-passenger seats.
Panoramic Sunroof: Open and close the available panoramic sunroof with the touch of a button to expand your view and bring natural light into your cabin.
Game-Changing Cargo Space: The first-ever Encore GX elevates weekend plans and celebrates your spontaneous impulses with its versatile cabin. GX has more than 50 cu. ft. of maximum cargo space, including an additional 69 mm (2.7 inches) of cargo height, when properly configured with the adjustable cargo area floor.
Spacious Centre Console: A large centre console provides generous storage for your snacks, sunglasses and other travel essentials. Plus, it serves as a full centre armrest that the driver and passenger can comfortably share.
Fits Your Life: Don’t go it alone. Hit the road with flexible seating for up to five and customization cargo options for the stuff you and the gang will need, to get the most out of where you’re going. No matter where you’re going or what you need, the versatility of the Encore GX makes it simple to customize your cargo space. The standard 40/60 split seats offer a diagonal cargo area for greater flexibility when paired with the front flat folding passenger seats.
Whether you’re navigating city traffic or backing out of a parking spot, these standard, integrated active safety technologies monitor your surrounding and can even alert you to potential hazards.
Buick Driver Confidence includes the following innovative safety technology features:
New IntelliBeam Headlamps: To enhance night time visibility, IntelliBeam automatically turns on the headlamps’ high beams when sensors detect appropriate ambient light conditions and then turns the high beams off as conditions change, such as when another vehicle is approaching.
Rear Vision Camera: When in Reverse, the standard Rear Vision Camera, or available HD Rear Vision Camera, provides a display of the scene directly behind the vehicle to help you park and avoid objects when in Reverse at low speeds.
Forward Collision Alert and Automatic Emergency Braking: Forward Collision Alert can alert you when a front-end collision is detected to be imminent with a vehicle ahead of you. Automatic Emergency Braking can help reduce the collision’s severity or avoid the collision by automatically applying hard emergency braking if you have not already, or by enhancing driver hard braking.
Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning: This technology can help you avoid crashes due to unintentionally drifting out of your lane by providing gentle steering-wheel turns when the system detects out of your lane with no turn signal or steering activity. It can also provides Lane Departure Warning alerts when a lane maker is crossed.
Following Distance Indicators: This feature can provide you with the following gap time (or headway) to a moving vehicle you are detected to be following to help you know if you are following much too closely.
Front Pedestrian Braking: Front Pedestrian Braking can alert you when a collision is detected to be imminent with a pedestrian directly ahead, at speeds below 80 kph. It can also help reduce the collision’s severity or avoid the collision by automatically applying hard emergency braking if you have not already, or by enhancing driver hard braking. Performance is limited at night.
Encore GX offers a personalized, powerful and connected driving experience with the Buick Infotainment System. The full-colour touch-screen display makes media accessible and informative, and available high resolution makes it even attractive.
Available Head-Up Display: With the touch of a button the available Head-Up Display (HUD) makes sure you have clear view of key information. Simply look ahead at the end of the road, and see the information displayed conveniently in your field of vision.
Available Wireless Smartphone Charging: Available on select models (only available on Essence trim level) wireless charging helps your smartphone powered and your cabin clutter-free. Simply place your compatible device on the pad in the open storage bin and let it recharge.
Rear Camera Mirror: Rear Camera Mirror allows you to use either a traditional inside mirror or rear-view camera mirror display that provides a wide, less obstructed field of view to check for traffic. Available zoom and vertical tilt adjustment add even more ways to see what’s around you.
Built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot (Data Plan Required): Stay connected with available built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot (data plan required). The connection can support up to seven devices so the whole gang can stream, surf and post to their heart’s content when you’re on the go.
Apple CarPlay and Android Auto Compatibility: Enjoy easy access to your iPhone’s music and maps, make phone calls, send hand free messages and more – all through your vehicle’s touch-screen or with your voice through Siri. Connect your compatible Android smartphone to make calls, access your favourite apps, send hands free messages and listen to music through the touch-screen or with hands-free, voice-activated technology.
