Following the announcement of refreshed 2024 Buick Encore GX in Mexico in mid-February, General Motors has just confirmed the upcoming arrival of Buick‘s updated crossover in the Latin country.
At the recent GM Mexico Annual Dealer Convention held in Las Vegas, Nevada, the automaker confirmed the launch of refreshed 2024 Buick Encore GX in Mexico during this second quarter of the year. The new 2024 Encore GX stands out for being the first vehicle to adopt the Tri-Shield brand’s new corporate image in North America.
“Buick renewed its image to bring our customers more style, luxury and innovation. The brand’s new Tri-Shield logo defines the beginning of one of the most exciting stages for Buick,” Marketing Manager for Buick at GM Mexico, Ángel Pacheco. “And what better than to do it with the arrival of the new 2024 Buick Encore GX, one of our most distinctive SUVs,” he added.
GM’s Mexican subsidiary reports that 2024 Buick Encore GX will arrive in the country in two distinctive trim levels, including the Sport Touring (ST) that becomes a standalone trim instead of an appearance package, and Buick’s new range-topping Avenir trim. Each configuration offers its own personality by embracing the brand’s new Pure Design language, with a darkened finish on the ST and bright elements on the Avenir.
On a mechanical level, both versions of 2024 Buick Encore GX for Mexico will be equipped as standard with the turbocharged 1.3L I3 L3T engine, developing 155 horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque, mated to the continuously variable automatic transmission, just like the current model offered in that country. Similarly, the 2024 Encore GX will maintain the FWD configuration as the only option in the Mexican market.
The refreshed 2024 Buick Encore GX will be available for sale in Mexico at the end of the second quarter of the year, a few weeks after imminently arriving in the U.S. and Canadian markets this spring. Both the two ST and Avenir variants will feature an extensive list of technology and safety equipment to position themselves in the premium subcompact crossover segment in the country. Pricing will be revealed during the Encore GX’s official launch.
