About Buick Encore

Being Buick's best-selling vehicle, Buick Encore has been produced by a German automobile manufacturer, a subsidiary of General Motors Adam Opel GmbH (Opel) and sold as Buick Encore in North America as a mini Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV) since 2012. Originally introduced as one of the first models in the relatively new but growing subcompact crossover segment, Encore is positioned below the compact Buick Envision and full-size Buick Enclave crossovers. Now, Buick Encore is in its first generation.
Buick Encore made its debut at the 2012 North American International Auto show and went on sale in 2012 for the 2013 model year. It was evolved from the Euro-market Opel Mokka based on the GM Gamma II platform along with the Chevrolet Trax crossover, Chevrolet Sonic and Chevrolet Spark. Encore comes in only one trim level and gets power from a 1.4 L I4 rated at 138 hp and 148 lb-ft of torque. And the engine sends power through a 6-speed automatic transmission to the front wheels and four wheels. Recently, it received a mid-cycle refresh. Now, Encore is equipped with lots of new interior technology including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto-friendly infotainment system with simplified center stack buttons. And the 1.4 L I4 engine was upgraded to a turbocharged version with an output of 153 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque.
