2017 Buick Encore Essence Specs

Buick Encore

The Essence maxes out on the luxury-focused features that the Encore lineup has to offer, coming standard with a heated steering wheel, heated front seats, a six-way power-adjustable passenger seat, driver-seat memory functions, and leather-appointed upholstery. It is also equipped with LED headlights. With a whole lot of standard features and a fairly affordable price, the Essense becomes our pick of the line-up.
