The 2023 Buick Encore will continue with the improvements. We can expect it to have a new look. There have been some rumors that this small crossover could be discontinued in the United States and Canada next year. Now, we learned more about the new model. The previous 1.4-liter engine is no longer available.
Buick replaced it with a more potent engine, which is good news. On the other hand, the transmission will remain intact. We expect numerous upgrades. The exterior will suffer a couple of visual updates and the interior will also introduce more stuff. Without further ado, here’s everything you need to know.
Buick Encore Redesign
For a start, the size of the 2023 Buick Encore will remain intact. Because of its size, the Buick Encore looks smaller than other cars in the same class. This is a good thing, as the drivers can find a lot easier parking places. In terms of looks, the new model will mostly be changed in the front, with a new grille, headlights, and hood.
The GX variant is slightly longer and definitely more premium. This version also looks sportier sporty because of its clean body lines, streamlined stance, and athletic stance. New Encore SUV will also introduce additional exterior colors and new optional wheels.
The upcoming 2023 Buick Encore will have a more pleasant interior when it comes out. The cabin is a lot nicer than the previous one, and the Encore has the same seating arrangement. With two rows of seats, this small SUV has enough room for five occupants. A cloth/suede seats, 7-inch touchscreen, automatic air conditioning, and noise-canceling are all standard in the Encore Preferred trim level. The Buick Encore also has basic features such as Bluetooth, navigation, USB-C ports, and the latest phone integrations.
New Encore SUV Gets More Power
The new 2023 Buick Encore will have a more powerful engine than the previous generation. As we said, the manufacturer changed the 138-horsepower gasoline engine from last year with the new 1.4-liter turbo-four unit. To make things even better, the Encore now has 155 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque, which is a nice upgrade.
As before, Buick will offer the same six-speed automatic transmission. Moreover, a front-wheel-drive system comes as standard. However, you can get an all-wheel-drive configuration as an option. We are still waiting to hear more details regarding the fuel economy and towing capacity ratings.
2023 Buick Encore Release Date, Price
Starting prices for the new 2023 Buick Encore will be about $25,000, even though there will be some important upgrades. The carmaker will also show off the new Encore GX, which is better than the old model. The sales will begin later this year, most likely around August. As before, Encore SUV will rival other models in the segment, including Kia Seltos and Mazda CX-30.
