The 2020 Buick Encore GX is offered with Buick Marketplace, a quick and easy way to access major brands and services via the in-vehicle infotainment system. Now, Buick is providing a brief how-to video on operating the feature.
Clocking in at just 48 seconds, the video gets right to the point, outlining the ways in which Buick Marketplace can add convenience for Buick Encore GX owners. Accessible via the vehicle infotainment screen, Buick Marketplace allows users to do things like find and pay for fuel, find and pay for parking, book a hotel room, book reservations at a restaurant, or order and pay for food.
“It works with your embedded navigation system to get you where you’re going,” the video explains.
Buick Marketplace is offered on most 2017 and newer Buick models, and is available to download via the Buick Apps Shop. Standard appointment for the 2020 Buick Encore GX includes an eight-inch diagonal touchscreen with 4G LTE Wi-Fi capability, as well as a 4.2-inch diagonal color Driver Information Center. A six-speaker audio system is also standard.
The Buick Encore GX made its big North American debut at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show, slotting in as the premium brand’s new “subcompact-plus” crossover between the standard Buick Encore and the Buick Envision.
