Pleasant to Drive, Well-Appointed, and Enviably Equipped: the 2023 Buick Encore GX
The 2023 Buick Encore GX has a starting MSRP of $24,400, and the five-passenger SUV delivers a lot in return for that modest investment. A roomy cabin that has a maximum cargo capacity of 50.2 cubic feet, an array of sought-after features, and peppy engines are mere samples of what you’ll have to look forward to as the owner or lessee of a new Buick Encore GX.
Drivers who contact the team at our Dearborn, MI Buick dealership to test-drive the Buick Encore GX have some decisions to make. First, you’ll have to choose which engine to try and then you’ll have to decide whether you want to test-drive an SUV with front- or all-wheel drive.
A turbocharged 1.2-liter three-cylinder engine is the SUV’s base powerplant. This engine generates 137 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque. The Buick Encore GX is also available with a turbocharged 1.3-liter inline-3 engine that produces 174 lb-ft of torque, and 155 hp. SUVs with AWD are powered by the latter engine, which is optional for vehicles with front-wheel drive.
Vehicles with front-wheel drive rely on a continuously variable automatic transmission for gear shifts. SUVs with AWD employ a smooth-shifting nine-speed automatic transmission to shift gears.
Smaller than stablemates like the Buick Enclave and Buick Envision, the 2023 Buick Encore GX is easy to operate on crowded city streets. When the SUV has the appropriate equipment, the Buick Encore GX can tow as much as 1,000 pounds.
