2020 Buick Encore GX Ratings & Reliability
The Encore GX is a subcompact SUV that fits between the tiny Encore and the larger Envision. It rides on an all-new platform and offers a choice of two new, turbocharged three-cylinder engines: a 137 hp variant, or one that produces 155 hp. Front-wheel drive and a continuously variable transmission (CVT) come standard, while optional all-wheel drive comes with a 9-speed automatic transmission. Inside, you’ll find a straightforward interior that does a good job dividing frequently used functions between traditional knobs and buttons and an 8-inch touch screen. The Encore GX also gets plenty of standard advanced safety features, including forward collision warning (FCW), automatic emergency braking (AEB) with pedestrian detection, and lane departure warning (LDW). It will be imported from Korea and be available in late fall.
