How Does the New Encore GX Expand the Buick Lineup?
Buick has changed drivers' expectations of crossover sport utility vehicles in recent years. For the 2020 model year, the beloved American brand brings you an additional crossover SUV option that bridges the size gap between its Encore and Envision models. Branded the Buick Encore GX, this model keeps its smaller sibling's agility while it adds cargo capacity. Let's further consider what the Encore GX adds to Buick's lineup as we enter a new decade.
Where Does the GX Fall in the Lineup?
The Encore GX placement between the Encore and the Envision provides a new price point to Buick's crossover SUV range. While you might like a larger vehicle than the original Encore, you could also prefer a lower cost. The Encore GX base price falls between the other two models' figures.

Buick showed the auto industry that it was a force with which to be reckoned eleven years ago when it debuted its improved line of vehicles. Gone were the old boxed cars that reminded young consumers of childhood days spent in the car with grandma. The carmaker showed buyers that it, too, could present models worth coveting. Buick continues down its revolutionary path with the QuietTuning feature.
Contrary to what some may think based on its name, the QuietTuning technology of Buick has nothing to do with the engine or its components. This innovative technology, instead, refers to the car's interior and the silence that you get when various sound-reducing aspects are at work.
QuietTuning by Buick uses many traditional methods to provide drivers with a smooth and tranquil ride. There is, of...
