2018 Buick Encore Base Specs

Buick Encore

The 1SV is the budget-friendly option, limited in standard features, available options, and variations. Unlike the other Encore trims, the 1SV’s default powertrain and drive system can’t be swapped out for the alternative options. It is, however, still favorably outfitted with features at its base point. An eight-inch infotainment touchscreen and standard six-speaker audio system are standard gadgetry, comprising 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot capability, Bluetooth connectivity, satellite radio, voice control, and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay functionality. Only a rear-vision camera covers driver assists at the base level, backed by ten standard airbags and a stability control system.
