When you get to see the all-new 2024 Buick Encore GX around Weyburn, Estevan, Carlyle, Radivlle, or Regina, there’s a good chance you may not associate it with its predecessors. Forget about modest refreshes; the all-new 2024 Encore GX goes all-in with a sleek and sporty new look that will turn heads wherever it goes. Suppose you’re shopping for a stylish and desirable premium compact SUV with solid performance. In that case, with standard AWD in many cases, and excellent fuel economy, the 2024 Buick Encore GX should be on your radar.
The Buick Encore GX’s mature silhouette is one aspect that hasn’t changed with this year’s redesign, but the Buick’s front end and interior certainly have. The Encore GX features a dramatically redesigned grille low to the bumper, giving it an almost-EV appearance. The brand’s distinctive logo condenses into a new tri-crest, which can look like three fangs at first glance and fits well with the new fascia.
The front of the interior is dominated by a ubiquitous 8.0-inch digital instrument cluster and an impressive 11.0-inch touchscreen that delivers all the vital information the driver could want and need. And if you like things even sportier, the ST specification adds black trim accents, an optional black roof, and a flat-bottomed steering wheel. The Avenir goes a more premium route with plenty of exterior chrome and an interior filled with two-tone leather upholstery.
The 2024 Buick Encore GX has a 1.3-liter inline-three turbocharged unit producing 155 horsepower and 174 lb.-ft. of torque. The turbocharger enables the small displacement unit to reach its peak torque faster and keep at that peak for longer across a wider RPM band. The result is improved responsiveness and a more exciting driving experience.
Both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive versions of the all-new Encore GX are available. The Sport Touring (ST) and Avenir trims are equipped with all-wheel drive as standard, which comes mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission. The Preferred trim is a standard front-wheel drive model with a continuously variable gearbox (CVT). But if you upgrade the Preferred trim to all-wheel drive, the CVT gets replaced by that nine-speed automatic.
Preferred, Sport Touring (ST), and Avenir are the three available trim levels for the 2024 Buick Encore GX. Standard features include the Buick Driver Confidence package, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and Buick’s Virtual Cockpit System (VCS) with an 11-inch infotainment system and an 8-inch driver cluster screen. With its high gloss black front and rear bumpers, LED taillamps, and optional Black Roof Package, the Sport Touring (ST) trim provides this already great-looking vehicle with a youthful and sporty appearance. A sporty flat-bottom steering wheel and distinctive ST badges seal the deal.
The Avenir grade, with its distinctive Avenir grille, clear lens LED taillamps, and 19-inch Avenir-specific alloys, is the pinnacle of Buick Encore GX luxury. Inside, the range-topping model features a special Whisper Beige and Jet Black Black colour scheme, leather seats, front seats adjustable in eight different ways that include a power lumbar, a heated steering wheel, a fine dust air filter, a rearview auto-dimming mirror, and headrests and door sills embroidered with the Avenir logo.
The 2024 Buick Encore GX is an attractive redesign of a vehicle that will appeal to sophisticated and tech-savvy small SUV buyers. The all-new Encore GX impresses with its redesigned interior, new digital features, and refreshed look.
