The 2024 Buick Encore GX is receiving a mid-cycle refresh that includes updates to the vehicle’s exterior, technology features, trim lineup, and powertrains. Now, upon closer look, the 2024 Encore GX will actually have a lower starting MSRP than the outgoing 2023 Buick Encore GX.
The refreshed 2024 Encore GX boasts a starting price of $26,895, which includes the $1,295 destination freight charge (DFC). By comparison, the 2023 model had a starting MSRP of $27,195. However, on the other end of the pricing spectrum, a range-topping 2024 Encore GX trim does have a higher starting price than a range-topping 2023 model.

It’s worth noting that exact specifications and trim levels features for the 2024 Encore GX have yet to be announced, so it’s currently unclear if the 2024 model will have the same list of standard features as the 2023 Encore GX.
For those who may be unaware, GM officially debuted the revised 2024 Buick Encore GX just last month. On the exterior, the styling has been revised and draws inspiration from the Buick Wildcat EV concept vehicle, as well as drawing obvious similarities to the upcoming fully electric Buick Electra E5 crossover. Notably, the 2024 Encore GX will be Buick’s first North American offering that features the new Tri-Shield logo design.
Highlighting the 2024 Encore GX is the introduction of the range-topping Avenir trim level. This new-for-Encore GX trim features several unique exterior accents and interior materials, and is chalked full of technology and active safety features.
Speaking of tech, the refreshed Encore GX receives a suite of new safety features, including Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, IntelliBeam auto high-beams, Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, and Adaptive Cruise Control. Additionally, the Virtual Cockpit System will be equipped as standard.
Under the hood, powertrain revisions are limited to new hardware, including a new turbocharger and engine mounts. Besides those minor details, specifications largely carry over from the 2023 model. This includes the turbocharged 1.2L I3 LIH gasoline engine, rated at 137 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque, and the available turbocharged 1.3L I3 L3T gasoline engine, rated at 155 horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque.
A front-wheel drivetrain is standard and pairs with a continuously variable automatic transmission, while AWD is optional and pairs with the GM nine-speed automatic.
