The Encore dates back to 2013 and was updated for the 2017 model year. Buick hasn’t commented on its future status, but given the Encore GX’s arrival, it doesn’t make much sense for the brand to eventually offer a direct Encore successor. The Encore GX is already that model, but it’s also possible Buick may one day introduce an even smaller crossover.
With a starting price of $25,095, including shipping, the Encore GX is just around $900 more than the Encore. Not surprisingly, many Encore GX owners originally planned to buy an Encore, but the newer crossover caught their attention instead. Younger buyers between the ages of 25 to 40 have shown particularly great interest, the exact demographic Buick is aiming for.
