Before 2019, Buick Encore was released. In late 2019, Encore GX was introduced. The difference between Encore and Encore GX is that Encore is only for China market while Encore GX is sold in a wider area. Buick Encore GX plays a role in the crossover category. Seen from the physical appearance, Buick Encore GX adopted almost whole Buick Encore design.
However, if we take look at the small detail, Buick Encore GX comes with the new design. About the size, it was predicted in 2019 that the Buick Encore GX would be smaller than the predecessor.
Matter of fact, 2020 Buick Encore GX is a little bigger than the previous one. After comprehending the two predecessors (Buick Encore and 2020 Buick Encore GX), what can we expect for the next generation 2021 Buick Encore GX?
The Engine That Supports This Car
The company provides a pair of engines for power; they are 155 horsepower (1.3 liters) as the upgraded one and 137 horsepower (1.2 liters) as the base one. Both are three cylinders engines. While the regular one (Encore) is supported by 138 horsepower. It is bigger than the based one but smaller than the upgraded one. It is predicted that the 2021 Buick Encore GX will upgrade the engine. The other prediction is the company will give the innovation to put the engine on a par with the predecessor (which comes with 4 cylinders engine).
But, if the company wants to keep it the same, it is not a big problem because the 2020 Buick Encore GX has a pair of engines with the turbocharger. Both have their advantages. The 3 cylinders engine is more economical while the 4 cylinders engines are more powerful but consume more fuel.
2021 Buick Encore GX Interior Design
Talking about the interior, the first important thing is how many people can be carried in this vehicle? The seats are five (for adults). For the children audience, it can carry about 6 kids. And the people inside can have comfortable sit because of the spacious area. The cargo is also more spacious so we can carry travel bags or other stuff nicely.
The company offers options that can be chosen. They are the radio (infotainment with 8” touch screen, infotainment, and navigation with 8” touch screen), audio sound system, the floor mat, head up view, wireless charging station, reader for SD card, and mat for cargo.
The next, 2021 Buick Encore GX, is expected to improve especially on the technology. The other features already fill the standard but the technology will always release innovation or updated software.
2021 Buick Encore GX Exterior Design
Before it was launched, 2020 Buick Encore GX was promised that it would have a smaller body than the regular encore. What might change the decision to have a bigger dimension of 2020 Buick Encore GX is still a mystery? But, it may be because of the market place.
Although the dimension is not exactly like what had promised, the size accommodates the American audience. The wheelbase of the new 2020 Buick Encore GX is longer than its predecessor. This plays a big role in making the new one larger. If we go to the lamp shape, the new design has new housing for the headlamp.
The fascia comes with the lower one, so if people see from the distance, it will be like a notch. The lines under the window in the first-gen of Encore have curve shape while in the new Buick Encore GX the lines are horizontally drawn from the headlamp to the back. The license plate for the new Buick Encore GX is placed in a lower place than the regular Encore.
The 2021 Buick Encore GX might come with the new exterior shape and a more fashionable style. The size of the recent Buick Encore GX can accommodate the American audience, for the new 2021 Buick Encore GX could keep the same size.
The size also helps the engineer to make an innovation. The spacious vehicle allows the innovation to be done. The designer will feel free to makeover here and there.
The whole specification and design are at the same level as Fiat 500X. But, compare to Buick Encore GX, Fiat 500X suffers a little on cargo size.
