With three different models to choose from, consumers can opt for basic, well-equipped, or loaded depending on needs. An upgrade from the previous model, the 2017 received a facelift with a new front end style and upgraded interior specifications. The tri-color shield and horizontal wings draw attention to the sculpted appearance of the 2017 Buick Encore. New technology allows drivers to integrate their smartphones with Android and Apple CarPlay.
A more modern interior design features soft materials with attractive simulated wood and metal trim. While the cabin offers a high-end feel, it also allows plenty of head room for those who are 6-foot. This allows for a comfortable ride with seats that offer a commanding view. There are even plenty of storage areas for gadgets and hiding valuables out of sight.
The 1.4L engine is turbocharged with Start/Stop technology and Direct Fuel injection which enhances performance and driving. The six-speed automatic transmission allows for up to 153 horsepower with upgraded models, while the 18-inch alloy wheels grip the road, making it optimal for all driving conditions. Equipped with heated mirrors and traction and stability control, drivers never have to worry about driving in snow or icy conditions as their SUV glides effortlessly through the tundra-like weather. Keyless entry allows drivers easy access to their vehicles, making life easier.
Brand new safety features for the 2017 Buick Encore includes front and rear side airbags, full-length side curtain airbags, front knee airbags and anti-lock disc brakes. A rear camera allows for safer reversing and new technology alerts drivers to blind spots while driving as the SUV detects when cars are where drivers can't see them.
Each trim has its own unique features, but all 2017 Buick Encore models feature 4-wheel drive and all have economic gas mileage. The latest model averages 25 city mpg and 33 highway mpg, making this a budget-friendly SUV.
Due to the upgraded exterior and interior, drivers report a quiet, comfortable ride with noise-cancelling technology and sound-deadening materials. The suspension allows the SUV to easily absorb bumps and rough terrain. It is very much in line with what Buick drivers expect from the brand.
It also comes equipped with the standard Buick promise in terms of reliability. As with previous models, it offers a basic, bumper-to-bumper 4-year, 50,000-mile warranty, and a 6-year, 70,000-mile powertrain warranty. Of course, the rust warranty, as well as roadside aid is also still covered for the same 6-year, 70,000-mile warranty.
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Buick Encore invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)
Note: All Buick Encore MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
