Longer 2020 Buick Encore GX Heading To LA For Its US Debut As The Brand’s Fourth SUV

Buick is expanding their SUV range with the addition of the 2020 Encore GX, which will make its US debut at the upcoming LA Auto Show.

The new 2020 Buick Encore GX slots between the smaller Encore and the larger Envision and Enclave SUVs and will be offered both in front- and all-wheel drive variants. An optional Sport Touring package will also be available, spicing up the exterior styling with exclusive features like a unique front grille, wheels and rear fascia.

The engine range consists of two options; base models are powered by a turbocharged 1.2-liter three-cylinder unit that pumps out 137 HP (139 PS) while the more powerful variants use an also turbocharged 1.3-liter unit with 155 HP (157 PS).

Both engines are paired to a CVT transmission but only the more powerful 1.3-liter unit will be offered with the AWD option that includes a nine-speed automatic transmission. AWD models will also feature a disable switch for better fuel economy when the extra grip is not needed.

“Premium SUV buyers are looking for features that fit their lifestyle priorities, and Buick is giving customers more segment choices with our new Encore GX,” said Duncan Aldred, vice president, Global Buick. “As we look to the future of Buick, and customer demand trends, our four-SUV portfolio puts us in a strong competitive position across the most popular SUV segments.”

The new Buick Encore GX will feature a range of advanced driver assistance and active safety systems as standard, including Forward Collision Alert; Automatic Emergency Braking; Front Pedestrian Braking; Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning; Following Distance Indicator; and IntelliBeam headlights with automatically adjusting low/high beams.

Inside the cabin of the 2020 Encore GX you’ll get a modern infotainment system with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and support for Sirius XM, as well as wireless charging and the company’s signature QuietTuning, which aims to minimize road noise.

The new 2020 Buick Encore GX and Encore GX Sport Touring will launch in the US market in early 2020.
