We are still in 2022 yet the talk of 2024 Buick Encore is ‘raging’. What could we get from this car?
When you heard about the 2024 Buick Encore, what do you think? Is it already coming? Well, even the Buick 2023 version hasn’t been released yet. So, if you are curious about the specification of the 2024 version of Buick Encore, things written here are just a prediction.
2024 Buick Encore Overview
You may be so curious that you are clicking this article to find out. Unfortunately, the 2204 Buick Encore is predicted not to be much different than its predecessor of 2023 Buick Encore. But, remind that the carmaker itself hasn’t shared anything official regarding this matter.
The car, if it is released finally, is predicted to keep its size sub-compact. The car itself remains a crossover car. As said, there is no major improvement in terms of exterior and interior design.
While for its powertrain, at first, we predict there may be a plan to electrify the Buick Encore to follow the trend. However, given the price of this sub-compact crossover, it is pretty unlikely for this car to set it totally to EV. As a result, the hybrid option may still be possible to come—but again, there are no words still from the carmaker.
The Car’s Performance
Sources mentioned that this car may not exhibit a major improvement in its engine, especially when compared to the 2023 version. This means the chance of having an EV Buick Encore is low, but we can hope that the carmaker brings out the hybrid version to keep up with the trend.
Regarding the car’s powertrain, if we are referring to what the 2023 version is using, it is predicted to be using the 1.4-L LE2 I4 turbocharged engine. With this comes a power production of 155 HP at its maximum. As for the torque, the car is getting a 177 lb.-ft. of torque.
As for the drivetrain, the 2024 Buick Encore is still predicted to have front-wheel drive as its standard drivetrain. Optional adjusting will also be available since you can change the standard FWD to an AWD by paying some bucks.
The car is using a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) which is paired to the standard drivetrain of front-wheel drive. However, if you are using the all-wheel drive drivetrain, the engine will be paired with the automatic transmission. The engine will also be adjusted but we are still unsure about this.
The Car Trims
Sources haven’t mentioned anything regarding the 2024 Buick Encore trims. If it is the same as what you get from the 2023 Buick Encore, then there will be three versions of Buick Encore: Preferred, Select, and Essence. These trims are sorted from the lowest trim to the highest.
However, the trim Preferred’s nameplate is predicted to be changed into GX—and this is already starting in the 2023 version. So, there is no Preferred trim coming as the lowest trim of Buick Encore.
Many Buick lineups have Avenir as part of their trim. We don’t know still whether Buick Encore will serve an Avenir or not, but it’s not bad to add the trim choices.
What about The Looks?
As said earlier, the Buick Encore in 2024 remains a sub-compact crossover. With that comes four doors which means the car is ready for 4 or even 5 passengers. Given its name of ‘sub-compact,’ we believe it is not providing you with a large cargo capacity.
Outside, the car is predicted to keep its design minor with changes. If any, we predict that there will be changes to its headlights and rear lights, as well as the option of body colors.
Inside, the 2024 Buick Encore could retain its simplistic approach to facilitate users driving the car. You should not expect an HQ material and a large touchscreen since it is a low-budget car. Hence, its functionality comes first—not its design.
