The 2023 Buick Encore GX subcompact crossover SUV is manufactured by General Motors. The 2023 Buick Encore is Buick’s first small compact crossover and the fourth SUV after Buick Rendezvous, Buick Rainier, and Buick Enclave. The Buick Encore GX offers a large amount of infotainment technology and comfortable travel, but there are a few differences between these small compact SUVs. Buick Encore is expected to receive minor changes and updates for 2023, the eleventh model year for the first generation.
The Buick Encore GX has more space for adults to stretch and store their luggage, and its standard list of safety features is far more important than its younger sibling. Encore, on the other hand, costs less and comes with a simpler infotainment system. Buyers who want to spend a little more money should look for a wider Encore GX.
The 2023 Encore maintains a comfortable driving experience even in difficult road conditions, and this small crossover is very easy to maneuver. There are many standard technology features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as an adult sitting in both rows and a large cargo compartment. Unfortunately, Encore’s hasty acceleration and high starting price keep it from being preferred like some of its class rivals.

The 2022 Encore is powered by a 155-horsepower turbocharged 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine, 17 horsepower more than previous models. However, this is still lacking in the Buick power section, which leads to slower acceleration. A six-speed automatic transmission is included. The 2022 Encore will get 24 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the front-wheel-drive road, as predicted by the EPA.
