2021 Buick Encore GX Preferred Specs

Buick Encore GX
Change Trim:
Change Year:

The entry point into the Encore GX range is the Preferred, a capable little crossover city SUV that has a lot going for it. Under the hood, you'll find a turbocharged 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine that is nippy enough for driving around town but can run out of steam on the open road. The 1.3-liter turbo mill is optional and comes paired with AWD. The exterior features alloy wheels and auto-on/off halogen headlights. On the inside, the Preferred offers standard features such as a six-way manually-adjustable driver's seat, two USB charging ports, a compass display, and a rear vision camera. Standard safety systems include forward collision alert and lane-keep assist.
