As a reminder, the 2024 Buick Encore GX was officially unveiled back in February 2023. On the exterior, the styling has been revised and draws inspiration from the Buick Wildcat EV concept vehicle, as well as reflects similarities in design to the upcoming fully electric Buick Electra E5 crossover. Additionally, the 2024 Encore GX will be Buick’s first North American vehicle that features the new Tri-Shield logo design.
One of the more notable additions to the 2024 Encore GX is the range-topping Avenir trim level. All-new for the Encore GX, this trim level features several unique exterior accents and interior materials, as well as a bevy of technology and active safety features.
On the tech side, the revised crossover receives a long list of available 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. In addition, the Virtual Cockpit System will be equipped as standard affair.
In regard to powertrain, revisions are limited to new hardware, including a new turbocharger and engine mounts. Besides those 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 (CVT), while AWD is optional and pairs with the GM nine-speed automatic.
