New 2021 Buick Encore GX for Sale in Sudbury, ON

The new 2021 Buick Encore GX is a fresh, modern subcompact crossover SUV that’s a little larger than the existing Buick Encore that continues in production alongside the new GX model. The GX isn’t noticeably bigger on the outside but the designers have done their very best to make the best possible use of every bit of internal space.

Legroom and headroom are plentiful in the front and the rear seats, the body of the GX is modern and slightly sporty, and a choice of engines help make the 2021 Encore GX a great option for running across town or for those longer drives like out to places like Nepahwin Lake for the weekend.

Choose Your Specification

There are three different trim levels in the 2021 Encore GX lineup here in Canada, but some people might want to say there are four as one of them is available in front-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive formats. Several upgrade packages can be added for further customising the Encore GX to suit your particular needs and style.

The first model in the 2021 Encore GX lineup is the Preferred, which is the only version of the little Buick that’s front-wheel-drive. The second model in the family is the Select and the top-of-the-range model is the Essence. Both the Select and Essence versions of the Encore GX are standard all-wheel-drive, but If that’s not enough personalization for your needs you can also add the likes of the Appearance, Active Lifestyle, Advanced Technology and Black Roof packages.

However you choose to specify your Encore GX, it’ll still look sensational outside Lo-Ellen Park Secondary School when you’re waiting to pick up the kids.

2021 Buick Encore GX Trim Levels

2021 Buick Encore GX Powertrain and Fuel Economy

A Brace of Turbo-Threes

Quite a few small crossovers only offer buyers a single engine, but there are two to choose between with the 2021 Buick Encore GX. The standard powerplant is a 1.2-litre, turbo-three developing a useful 137 horsepower and 162 lb.-ft. of torque which goes to the front wheels through a CVT transmission. This engine and drivetrain are only available with the Preferred trim level.

If you want your Encore GX with all-wheel-drive you’ll also be upgrading to the 1.3-litre version of the three-cylinder turbocharged engine, and that means you’ll then have 155 horsepower and 174 lb.-ft. of torque at your disposal. Instead of the CVT that’s mated to the 1.2-litre engine, this time the power will be delivered to all four wheels through a nine-speed automatic transmission instead.

An Encore GX Preferred with the 1.2-litre engine and front-wheel-drive gets fuel economy ratings of 9.0 L/100 km in the city, 7.9 L/100 km on the highway and 8.4 L/100 km combined. All-wheel-drive versions of the Buick with the 1.3 are rated at an almost identical 9.0 L/100 km in the city, 8.1 L/100 km on the highway and 8.4 L/100 km combined.

Impressively Equipped, Safe and Connected

Every 2021 Buick Encore GX comes with a Buick Driver Confidence Package which includes several active safety features such as Automatic Emergency Braking, Front Pedestrian Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Alert, Following Distance Indicator and IntelliBeam headlamps with auto high beam.

The Encore GX Preferred comes very well-equipped in its standard form with features such as power features, an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatible infotainment system, Bluetooth connectivity for two devices, a six-speaker audio system with amplifier, keyless start, climate control, 18-inch alloy wheels and cloth/leatherette seats.

Select and Essence trims build upon that impressive set of Preferred standard features, but there’s also some really upscale equipment to be found on the options list. If you really want to upgrade your Encore GX to a high level you can get big car features such as adaptive cruise control, HD surround vision, a navigation system, a Bose premium audio system, leather upholstery and even a head-up display.
