2020 Buick Encore comes as a fully redesigned model, this time with new equipment and slight changes in engine strength. Unfortunately, we were not being able to see how much the model is really changed so far. The first photos are made on test driving, with camouflage on the car, and uncovered cabin parts.
We obviously should be patient to the end of the year, when this model will be released. The model will not be made in Korea only, but in a plant in North America.
- The model is redesigned and modernized.
- There are small changes in the cabin, too.
- The engine is the same as before, with no clear information about improvements.
- There is no information about the releasing date as the model has not finished yet.
The model should be fully redesigned this time, according to the spy photos. Even though 2020 Buick Encore was covered on test driving, we saw changes in the shape of the chassis and obviously in details. However, there are no clues what will include those changes.
As we know that the manufacturer has planned to change the whole line of crossovers, it is not surprising to see Encore as redesigned. Do not forget that models in class, like Mazda XT-3 or Audi Q2, has already redesigned their models, so it was time to see Encore changed, too. It could be slightly longer and has redesigned lights.
We were not being able to see 2020 Buick Encore so far. It seems that the manufacturer has not changed design and equipment a lot, so nothing particular has been showed about that. However, we expect visible upgrades in design and surely improvements and updates in technology.
The cabin should be a large two-row shell with five seats, large enough for average passengers. The major change should be on the dashboard, with the new center cluster, along with new buttons layout and surely new design of the commands.
The manufacturer has decided to put acceptably strong but trustworthy 1.4-liter petrol engine under the hood. If future buyers are not satisfied with the 153 horsepower of strength, there are chances that the manufacturer will offer 2.0-liter petrol unit with a significantly higher number of horses – even 237 ones.
The GM has chosen nine-speed automatic transmission to match with these engines, as on the current model. On this way, Encore comes closer to Cadillac XT4.
2020 Buick Encore Release Date and Price
Not only that 2020 Buick Encore comes as a redesigned model, but it also gets a new engine and impressive changes in the cabin. But, will price be significantly changed? The manufacturer said that it will not be that much higher as we could expect.
The price of the new model should be roughly $20,000 without additions in the cabin and improvements of the engine. However, the final price will be said by the buyer.
