Eric's Autos: 2022 Buick Encore GX

Eric Peters on

The smallest Buick ever is now a little bit bigger.

Well, except for what's under its hood, where you'll find the smallest engine ever put in a Buick. Just three-cylinder and 1.2 liters. There are motorcycles with more engine.

But there is an option to buy a bigger engine. And the Encore GX comes standard with more passenger and cargo room than the Encore without the GX.

Buick continues to sell both Encores, on the theory that one size might not fit all.

What It Is

The Encore GX is the slightly larger version -- the encore -- of the just-Encore.


Both are compact-sized crossovers with very compact engines. But the Encore GX's engines (there are two of them) are even more so.

Instead of a turbocharged four-cylinder engine, there are either of two turbocharged three-cylinder engines to pick from.

Prices start at $24,200 for the base Preferred trim, which comes with a turbocharged 1.2-liter, three-cylinder engine and front-wheel drive.

All-wheel drive is available optionally.
