According to the information our team has got recently, it seems that the year 2019 is going to bring another redesigned crossover to the market. The small-sized 2019 Buick Encore is about to undergo its minor changes and improvements in terms of design, but also under the hood.
When it comes to exterior of the 2019 Buick Encore, this small four-door crossover is going to make its appearance with a much more impressive and fresher design than its predecessor. Although the new Encore and its exterior features will seem pretty much familiar, this crossover will still update some parts of its equipment. It will appear more muscular and bulkier with some sharper edges. However, you should not expect anything revolutionary to happen. The new Encore will keep using its familiar GM’s Gamma 2 platform. This platform is shared with models such as Chevrolet Spark and Sonic. However, the new Encore has mostly been compared to the recently released Opel Mokka. In fact, some would say that these two models look identical. The new Encore will be available in several trims and probably one or two new exterior colors. Of course, the equipment you get will depend on the trim you choose. The Sport trim, for instance, will stand on 18-inch aluminum wheels and get a rear spoiler and some other unique features.
Inside the 2019 Buick Encore, you will find an improved and modern cabin that will be able to accommodate five adult passengers. Although being known for its small dimensions, the 2019 Buick Encore will actually provide more space for you and your passengers. Buick will also use some better-quality materials to cover the seats and furnish the cabin and it has also been said that one or two interior color combinations might be available. The dashboard will wear that same familiar design, but Buick will significantly improve its technology. The driver will get a 4.2-inch information display in the instrument cluster and a new center console with an 8.0-inch touch-screen display and the latest infotainment and entertainment system. A rear-view camera, airbags and seatbelts are just some of the safety systems and driver assist features that the new Encore will include.
When it comes to engine options that the 2019 Buick Encore will offer under its hood, the most probable will come with a 1.4-liter turbo inline-four. Such an engine is expected to deliver 138 horsepower in a base model and 152 horsepower in higher trim levels. It will be mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. However, a rumor has it that the Encore might get a new GM’s nine-speed automatic transmission and some more powerful engine options.
2019 Buick Encore Release Date and Price
The release date of the 2019 Buick Encore has not been announced, but this crossover should be expected in the market by early 2019. Its price could start around $25,000 before options.
