When you need a vehicle with toughness but couldn’t live without some luxurious appointments, then the 2017 Buick Encore delivers as a premium compact SUV. Choose either front-wheel or all-wheel drive as well as one of six Encore trim levels: Encore, Preferred, Sport Touring, Preferred II, Essence, or Premium. No matter your choice in Encore, it’s sure to excite.
New Additions To The 2017 Buick Encore SUV
Replacing the previous multimedia system for the current model year is Buick IntelliLink, which comes with or without navigation. Its high-resolution eight-inch color touch display works with AM/FM stereo, three months of available SiriusXM® Satellite Radio, or devices attached through two USB ports. It also integrates well with compatible smartphones through Bluetooth®, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. To keep your focus on the road, you can use your voice to make hands-free phone calls or adjust the music.
Another innovative Buick addition is Keyless Open, which eliminates fumbling with keys. As long as you have the encoded key fob with you, the 2017 Encore SUV senses your approach and automatically unlocks the doors and turns on the interior lights.
This SUV is powered by a standard 1.4-liter ECOTEC turbocharged engine that generates 138 horsepower and 148 lb.-ft. of torque. With Variable Valve Timing, sequential multi-port fuel injection, and the six-speed automatic transmission, fuel efficiency reaches 33 MPG on the highway and 25 MPG in the city. Speed-sensitive power steering applies more assistance during low-speed maneuvering and less at highway speeds.
Up to five people can enjoy the comfortable cabin that stays serene thanks to QuietTuning™ Technology, which includes an acoustic-laminated windshield and front side glass, triple door seals, and unique suspension tuning. Available dual-zone air conditioning allows separate comfort levels for driver and front passenger that automatically adjust to compensate for changes in outside temperatures.
Six power adjustments are standard on the driver seat and available for the front passenger seat. Fold down the front-passenger and second-row seats to enlarge cargo capacity from 18.8 cubic feet to 48.4, which is more than enough room to carry surfboards up to eight feet long.
Even while you’re speeding down I-5, you can stay connected with available built-in 4G Wi-Fi Hotspot tech, which hooks up to seven devices to the Internet. Back out of your garage, and the Rear Vision Camera reveals a live image of what’s behind you, so you won’t have to worry about running over a water-logged ball or toy. Convenient guidelines help you judge your path and distance to obstacles. With available Front and Rear Park Assist, parking becomes easier, as well.
The 5-star Overall Score bestowed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration ensures protection for you and your riders. Available Lane Departure Warning tells you if you’re drifting from your current lane. To make lane changes easier, available Side Blind Zone Alert warns you of vehicles entering your dreaded blind zone with a visual indicator on the appropriate outside mirror. To give you complete control of the vehicle under low-traction conditions or during emergency maneuvers, Stabilitrak® Stability Control can apply the brakes and reduce engine torque when it detects that your direction differs from your intended path. With OnStar, a push of a button connects you to a human agent who can help with directions, roadside assistance, and other emergency services.
