2023 Buick Encore GX Overview
Buick may not be a prominent carmaker especially if you are comparing it to other bigger names. To mention some, BMW, Volvo, Honda, Kia, and even Audi. However, you should not diss its status of being a less well-known carmaker.
The carmaker comes with a budget-friendly SUV with the name 2023 Buick Encore GX. Yes, it is part of the Encore lineup which came in three models to offer. The GX model, as mentioned in the sources, is the lowest one among all trim options.
Previously, Buick Encore came with three model options. The previous model names will include Preferred, Select, and Essence—sorted from the lowest trim to the highest. As you can expect, the Preferred trim is now replaced with the GX trim.

How the Car Looks
It is difficult to know what the front face of this model will look like compared to other models of Buick Encore. So far, we believe that there is no difference whatsoever in terms of the exterior look of the GX model with other models.
The car will be a subcompact one, hence it can be seen as the mini version of Enclave or Electra. The lineup will come with metallic finishing. However, the color lineup will remain a mystery until its release date.
Sources mentioned that the car’s outer look will remain the same as what you can find on the current release of Buick Encore Preferred.
The Interior Aspects

In addition, since it is on the lineup’s bottommost, you cannot expect much for the seating upholstery to have an outstanding material.
Despite that, you can get an eight-inch touchscreen as part of the car’s supporting feature. The infotainment system will still be providing you with an upgraded system version, and we believe that the car’s providing you with smartphone integration systems such as Android Auto or Apple CarPlay.
The Powertrain and Performance
As for the car’s performance, you may not be able to expect the car to produce massive power. As mentioned in sources, the car’s powertrain can be expected to produce around 137 HP. The engine used will be the 1.2-L three-cylinder turbocharged engine.
The 2023 Buick Encore GX comes with a standard front-wheel drive as its drivetrain. You can upgrade this into an all-wheel drive drivetrain, but that means you need to upgrade the powertrain as well.
When upgraded, the car’s mentioned being using the all-wheel drive drivetrain which will be paired up with a 1.3-L three-cylinder turbocharged engine. The 2023 Buick Encore GX will use a 9-speed, automatic transmission in lieu of a CVT transmission.
