Fuel Efficiency & Control

With the 2018 Buick Encore compact SUV, Buick delivers a highly efficient and fun to drive vehicle with the versatility of a larger vehicle. Every new Encore comes equipped with a fuel-sipping 1.4-liter turbocharged ECOTEC engine, connected to a 6-speed automatic transmission with overdrive and Driver Shift Control. The potent 1.4-liter turbo engine propels the Encore with a capable 138 hp and 148 lb-ft of torque. With variable valve timing and sequential multi-port fuel injection, the Encore's turbo engine helps this sporty compact SUV achieve impressive fuel economy ratings. For added traction and confidence in any road conditions, the available AWD system is ready to shift into action. Buick's advanced AWD system features smart technology that allows it to automatically switch back to FWD to maximize efficiency when power is not needed at all four wheels.

Buick Refinement & Comfort Comes Standard

Featuring comfortable seating for up to five passengers and a maximum cargo capacity of more than 48 cubic feet, the 2018 Buick Encore is surprisingly roomy and versatile considering its small footprint. Even with all five seats in the upright position, there are over 18 cubic feet of cargo space in the rear hatch area -- which is more than any mid-size sedan! Standard cabin amenities on the 2018 Encore CUV include features like a Buick IntelliLink AM/FM/CD/SiriusXM Satellite Radio audio system, OnStar with 4G LTE Wi-Fi, Rear Vision Camera, flat-folding front passenger seatback, a rear 60/40 split-bench seat and ten airbags. Navigation and a 7-speaker Bose premium sound system are also available.

Luxury Touches in an Affordable Compact SUV

For 2018, the Buick Encore is available in a range of nicely appointed trim levels and packages, including the Encore Group, Convenience Group, Leather Group, Premium Group and Sport Touring Group. Filling the void fo entry-level luxury compact SUVs on the market today, the 2018 Encore is packed with many amenities that cannot be had on any other vehicle in its class. The 2018 Encore drives and rides like a proper Buick luxury vehicle, thanks to its 18-inch aluminum alloy wheels, acoustic laminated glass and Buick-exclusive QuietTuning noise-reduction technology.
