At the 2016 New York International Auto Show this week, Buick introduced the 2017 Buick Encore (facelift). Here’s an image comparison between the 2017 Buick Encore and the 2013 Buick Encore to find out the differences between the vehicles.
The 2017 Buick Encore mimics its European cousin, the Opel Mokka X. Compared with the 2013 Buick Encore, the 2017 Buick Encore has an appreciably sharper face and a mildly revised rear-end. Up front, the facelifted Encore gets new full LED headlamps, winged grille with the brand’s new tri-color badge and new bumper, fog lamps and faux skid plates. At the rear, changes worth noting are the new pattern fake skid plates and tweaked tail lamps.
Inside, the instrument panel has been updated and incorporates a new gauge cluster with a 4.2-inch color driver information display. The new center stack blends and makes the infotainment system more easily accessible to the driver. The IntelliLink infotainment system features a new, frameless 8-inch color touch-display.
The 2017 Buick Encore sees no mechanical changes. The 1.4-liter ECOTEC turbocharged four-cylinder gasoline engine producing 138 hp (102 kW) and 148 lb.-ft. (200 Nm) of torque and 1.4-liter SIDI turbocharged four-cylinder gasoline engine making 153 hp (112 kW) and 177 lb.-ft. (240 Nm) of torque continue being the engine choices.
The 2017 Buick Encore will go on sale in the last quarter of the year and be available in five trim levels: Encore (1SB), Encore Sport Touring (1SH), Encore Convenience (1SD), Encore Leather (1SL) and Encore Premium (1SN).
