Refreshed 2024 Buick Encore GX Interior Spied For First Time25
The refreshed 2024 Buick Encore GX is headed down the pipe now, with an overhauled interior and a new screen setup among the refresh highlights. Now, GM Authority spy photographers have captured the updated 2024 Buick Encore GX interior completely uncovered in a series of new images.
For those readers who may have missed it, GM Authority exclusively reported last week that the refreshed 2024 Buick Encore GX would introduce a major interior update with a new screen configuration. The new layout will include a horizontally oriented enclosure housing a digital gauge cluster behind the steering wheel, as well as a centrally placed center stack screen, a setup similar to the screen layout introduced with the new Buick Envista set to launch in the U.S. early next year. The layout will also include centrally placed HVAC vents below the center stack screen, as well as HVAC controls placed below the vents.
Now, these new spy photos confirm the details of that earlier GM Authority exclusive. As we can see, the refreshed 2024 Buick Encore GX interior does indeed run a horizontal screen layout matching a digital gauge cluster with a centrally placed infotainment screen, while slim HVAC vents and rounded HVAC controls make up the center stack.
In addition to the new interior, the refreshed 2024 Buick Encore GX will also introduce updates for the exterior styling that include a new front fascia with slim lighting signatures high in the corners and projector lights mounted low. New wheels and new badging will also debut with the upcoming refresh.
Further changes will include the introduction of an all-new, range-topping Avenir trim level for the U.S. market complete with more high-end materials, more standard tech, and a number of active safety features. As for the powertrain, the current engine options are expected to carry over, with the refreshed 2024 Buick Encore GX once again offering the turbocharged 1.2L I3 LIH gasoline engine and turbocharged 1.3L I3 L3T gasoline engine. The GM VSS-F vehicle set will provide the bones.
The refreshed 2024 Buick Encore GX is set to hit production in March of the 2023 calendar year. Production for the North American market will take place at the GM Bupyeong plant in South Korea.

If I were actually interested in a new Encore GX, had the exterior changes not been enough to make me walk, that dash would be the nail in the coffin.
Way to go Buick. Take a nice looking CUV, make it uglier outside and then kill the interior with the “I want to be just like everyone else” dash/screen. The 2020-2022 dash is much nicer.
I believe the update is so that Buick can platform share the Encore with an EV.
I wholeheartedly agree. I actually liked the vehicle and was considering buying one however this new update absolutely is revolting and now Buick is off the list of vehicles to buy!
I agree with you. What are these car designers thinking anyway? Maybe they need some fresh air in the design studios to help clear their minds. The current design has that Buick look and do not get me started on the redesign of the Buick tri shield. Why did they do that? It was a link to Buick’s past. I am warming up to the Encore GX. If I do consider one though I would check out a certified one or an Equinox. A certified Equinox is a better value for the money than a new Encore GX in my personal opinion. It has a bigger engine and probably more cargo space. Also, you do not need to buy AWD in order to avoid a CVT transmission. The redesigned front-end smacks of the Cherokee from a few years ago. Not the best vehicle to emulate design wise or in any other manner
I feel the opposite, Dan. For once, GM isn’t letting a vehicle rot on the vine without updates. It will have Buick’s new styling and an improved interior. I personally will want to see how the Avenir trim comes together on the Encore.
Understand what you are saying. What I can’t get on board with is making changes just to change. They can make changes that will keep the car fresh without succumbing to fads that cheapen it. It’s clear I’m done with SUV’s, so I’m not a Buick buyer any more (although I’ve owned a lot of them). Yet the one thing that Buick had going for it was the more elegant interiors and dash. The still current Encore GX and Envision are newer models with a fantastic interior. We all know how this works and the next move with be the other Buick models adopting this same screen/dash look. Welcome to Kia, Hyundai, Ford and the others and goodbye to any reason to buy a Buick. From class to trash. Just my opinion.
I agree, new front end looks like half of the EV’s coming out, esp from GM. Without a tag, nothing says Buick about this look. Oddly, the current version reminds me of a 69 Skylark in a subtle way, kinda cool. New exterior could have came from just about any brand. Interior is trendy, but nothing unique either.
I believe in keeping things fresh, but not in the same vein as the last Cruze and Equinox body panel updates, which made the new models boring. GM cancelled the Cruze because they say no one is buying cars anymore, but really, they just made it bland – none of the Japanese brands stopped making small cars. The Eq survived because of the CUV fad, but the new Cruze and EQ shared a “sheet blowing in the wind” design that’s bland and boring, compared to the stout look of the previous models.
My wife has a 2022 Encore GX. When the lease comes due, another GX is a definite possibility. We like the new design and the dash has been modernized very nicely
Has bigger bezels around the screen than a 1970s tv wtf.
Wow made a Buick look like a cheap Chevy rather than a luxury Buick. GM needs the top level management to be refreshed, And soon
steve: I have a 2021 Malibu, and I feel my Malibu is now much nicer than this Encore GX (interior wise). The fact that my car is a CAR only makes it that much better to me.
Guess what I’m saying is that Buick seems to be heading in a direction that could make Chevy the nicer interior vehicle?
Our 2020 Encore GX is on a three year lease. It’s a comfortable and attractive vehicle. We are particularly fond of its drivability, performance and good looks. I could see us heading right to lease another without any hesitations what so ever.
My wife is on her second Encore. She leases. She likes the styling of the Encore and Encore GX , but this new one looks like a cheap copy everyone else look, Like a chrysler or whatever the new name is product. Just plain ugly.
I don’t see nor does my wife see, one thing that makes us want to trade her 2017 in, at least for the new Encore. Definitely doesn’t look better exterior or interior wise. The front end just looks like a lot of others. Dash wise it definitely failed in my opinion. Looks like 1/3 of a big screen tv thrown in the dash. Buick has always had its own look and styling that’s what made it a Buick. . When it’s finally time to replace the 2017 we will be looking at something other than a Buick Encore.
Ughh. Stop complaining. Fully digital dashes are becoming more standard or atleast offered now. Adapt or fall behind and pale in comparison. All Cadillacs should have been offering fully digital dashes as an option by 2020 in my opinion. I’m sure this design will look nicer in official pictures and in different colors. GM should follow in Kia,Hyundai, and Ford’s foot steps more.
Really SonicSouz? My 1988 Cadillac Cimarron has a fully digital dash that was years ahead of most in the market at that time. Guess what? GM and Cadillac were bashed then for having them. I still agree today.
I wish my Cimarron had the nice gauges with needles. Anyhow, I just found your comment to be interesting since you tell us to “adapt or fall behind”. I’ll fall behind thank you.
Why can’t Americans buy buick sedans?
They dont make them
Yet another in what seems a recent series of updates no one asked for, that ends up wrecking the appeal of a product that was borderline to begin with. I honestly cannot remember the last time I saw a “next” year version of something from gm that didn’t somehow put me off any interest I may have had. I seriously ponder whether the competition has landed a mole high within GM because their actions on product the last couple of years seem absolutely suicidal. With 5 cars on the road, i usually replace 1 every year. I’ve struggled to stay loyal the last few years and it seems just as I resign myself to buy something from gm, even though I don’t particularly love it, they change something for the worse and kill the deal. If this isn’t sabotage then something in high mgmt really needs a spanking because the track record is awful. About 60% of what they put forth is DOA design wise, and the other 40% they manage to ruin with year-to-year changes.
Right now I have a young driver who needs new wheels. A cruze would have been good, though we prefer awd. Doesn’t matter, as that choice was taken away. A Trax was far too ugly. A malibu would have worked until they went cvt, jacked the price, and cut availability. An encore was fairly appealing but the small size scared us and that also went away. An encore gx was under consideration as an alternative to a trailblazer (also not available). This restyle is an absolute non-starter for us so what’s left? Subaru crosstrek is about perfect. Mazda has a slew of nice choices. Kia is killing gm on style and offering configurations people want. Ford has a nice Escape. Used Cadillac sedans are cheap and attractive……
Buick has zero sedans, and only 1 us-made cuv (enclave). The lineup is basically a choice of Korean or Chinese cuvs? WTH happened to our quintessential American Buick?
Forget the inside. What on earth did they do to the exterior!? The front is FUGLY
Front end with its stacked “mouths” looks like 2 frogs mating. Ugly as hell and ruined whatever appeal it previously had. Good job Buick, you managed to make Ford design language look good by comparison.
GM is on a suicide mission to destroy or cancel every single one of their current products. I guess they think this will cause us to suddenly take interest in electric versions of the uninspiring mediocrity?
I am with you Blunt and Andrew!
Hello Blunt I agree with you. My wife has a 2022 Encore, which she loves. The size is prefect and the AWD is great for Michigan weather. But when the lease is up, I am not sure what we will get her. She DOES NOT WANT a electric vehicle! I on the other hand am disappointed with GM. I sold GM products for over 36 years. Now they do not have a vehicle that I want. Malibu.. please. I am at the age that I am going to get a car that I want to drive. It has to have some power and it has to have a good handling suspension and brakes. Other than a Camaro which is not as good looking as the 69 Z/28 I had. Or Corvette which is out of my price range. Neither are drivable in snow. So the last two vehicles that I leased was and is… 2020 Hyundai Elantra N Line. Fun to drive 200hp, 195 lb ft in a hatchback. Now a 2023 Kia Forte GT. Same drive train as the Elantra, but with a lot more options. It has more tech stuff, & options and leather seats than the 2022 Buick Encore. And cost a lot less. LOL As far as electric, my wife will except a hybrid.. Gas/electric.
Butt ugly what in the world is Buick doing we have a 22 Encore Gx could be worth more money then ever by the looks of the new one
