Assigned color code GGK and touch-up paint code WA-650G, Sapphire Metallic is one of six metallic colors available for the small Buick crossover.
Notably, the 2022 Encore GX offers a total of eight exterior color options:
- Summit White
- Ebony Twilight Metallic

What’s more, Sapphire Metallic cannot be combined with the sporty-looking Sport Touring package.
The new Sapphire Metallic hue is available with all interior color combinations as well as all trim levels.

Production of Encore GX – and its corporate cousin, the Chevy Trailblazer – was impeded during April 2021 as a result of the microchip shortage. The GM Bupyeong factory in South Korea then went back to full production on May 31st. As such, 2022 units have already reached some U.S. Chevy dealers, including models finished in Sapphire Metallic.
Notably, 2022 Buick Encore GX models feature various minor changes and updates. Aside from the deletion of five exterior colors and addition of the four new aforementioned exterior colors, the small crossover also sees the turbocharged 1.3L L3T I4 engine replace the 1.2L LIH I4 engine as the base powerplant on FWD Essence (1SL) models.
