Buick Encore GX in Reidsville, NC

Introducing the All-New Buick Encore GX

Although the Buick Encore has been around for almost a decade in the Greensboro area, the GX variant has been recently introduced as a larger version of the well-received subcompact crossover. In addition, it's arguably the best-looking Buick vehicle yet with its sporty look, larger grille, and huge 18-inch alloy wheels. The Buick Encore GX is available in three flavors for Winston-Salem area customers: Preferred, Select, and Essence.

Performance

Summerfield area residents looking for a fuel-efficient SUV will find that in the Buick Encore GX. Powering the vehicle is a 137-horsepower 1.2-liter Ecotec turbocharged engine, which is accompanied by a stop/start system to eliminate idling, thus avoiding the unnecessary consumption of fuel when at a complete stop.

In addition, the Ecotec engine is pinned to a continuously variable transmission, which replaces the energy-consuming gear-shifting mechanism of traditional transmissions for a smoother operation. As a result, the GX peaks at an EPA-estimated 26 MPG in the city and 30 MPG on the highway. Front-wheel drive is standard, with the option of upgrading to all-wheel drive to maximize traction on slippery roads.

Interior Features

With seating for up to five people, the Buick Encore GX provides a pair of leatherette-trimmed rows of seats. The driver faces a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Move up to the Select to get 10-way power driver seat with two-way power lumbar. The Essence is easily the most luxurious of the three trim levels, with unique features such as front-seat and steering-wheel heating, leather seat trim, driver-seat memory, and eight-way power adjustability with two-way power lumbar support on the front passenger seat.

With an eight-inch color touchscreen interface as its centerpiece, the Buick Infotainment System brings together a six-speaker AM/FM stereo system, Bluetooth® wireless technology for hands-free phone calling and audio streaming, a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, and Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone integration. There's also a USB port and an audio jack for playing media from mobile devices, as well as a pair of charging-only USB ports.

Keyless start with push-button engine start enables you to unlock the doors by just having the key fob on you and start the car without using the ignition key. At the Select trim level, the Encore GX is enhanced with a dual-zone automatic climate control system, remote start, and a trial subscription to SiriusXM Radio. Only the Essence has auto-dimming ability on the rearview mirror, a garage door opener, and wireless charging ability.

Safety Features

The Buick Encore GX comes with a host of driver-assistance features, which work together to help you avoid crashes. These features, which comprise the Buick Driver Confidence package, are a following distance indicator, a forward collision alert, front pedestrian braking, automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist with lane departure warning, and automatic high-beam technology (IntelliBeam). 

There's also a rearview camera, which monitors what's behind you by producing a video image. However, if there's a collision, the GX is equipped with dual frontal impact, dual knee, dual side impact, and dual side curtain airbags to deploy if necessary. Also on board are LED daytime running lamps to increase conspicuity, StabiliTrak® for electronic stability and traction control, and Teen Driver to encourage ideal driving habits from younger drivers. On the Essence, Buick adds lane change alert with side blind zone alert to help avoid side crashes, as well as rear cross-traffic alert to look out for vehicles crossing the path behind you when backing out of somewhere.
