Buick Encore sales increased 19 percent to 25,008 units in the third quarter of 2019, which is an even more impressive performance than the sales growth it experienced in Q2. The continued rebound is quite welcome after the Encore’s less-than-favorable performance during Q1 2019, though unsurprising, as the latest results are in line with the ongoing market shift toward utility vehicles such as crossovers, SUVs, and trucks.
During the month of October 2019, a Buick Encore discount reduces the price of all 2019 models, which can equate to over $5,000 off in some cases. This offer is identical to other incentives the automaker has offered throughout most of the year, and remains exclusive to non-GM owners. In that regard, we believe that this incentive is an effort to maintain sales volume in an ultra-competitive segment.
The nationwide Buick Encore discount on the 2019 Encore is 20 percent off MSRP. The offer represents the second-largest discount for the Encore so far in 2019 on a percentage basis, with the biggest rebate being 21 percent off in April. That deal was also restricted to those who didn’t own a GM product.
To reiterate, the deal in October is also only applicable to those who currently do not own a GM product (non-GM, 2005 and newer), and are financing the purchase through GM Financial. For reference, here are the applicable 2019 Buick Encore starting MSRPs by trim level:
- Encore (1SV) – $24,195
- Preferred (1SB) – $25,595
- Sport Touring (1SH) – $26,795
- Essence (1SL) – $30,295
In the example offer provided, the Buick Encore discount reduces the price of a Preferred model with an MSRP of $26,910 using the following incentives:
- $734 price reduction below MSRP + $4,648 purchase allowance, for a total discount of $5,382
- Must take delivery by October 31st, 2019.
- See dealer for details.
- Incentive for the United States of America, unless otherwise specified.
- Some customers may not qualify for this offer.
- Offer not available with special finance, lease, and some other offers.
We strive to provide accurate and up-to-date information about the vehicles and their incentives in question, but errors and misprints can happen. In addition, the manufacturer can change incentive information at any time and without notice. Always consult with your dealer regarding color availability information before making purchase decisions. GM Authority will not be held responsible for any misprints, typos or any other errors.
