With styling influenced by the Wildcat EV concept, the 2024 Buick Encore GX gets a sleek, modern look with a forward-leaning front end highlighted by an updated grille and new signature winged LED running lights. Centered above the grille is Buick’s new tri-shield logo. “The new Encore GX delivers a sleek, sporty, sophisticated presence,” said Director of Global Buick Design Bob Boniface. “It’s inherently functional, yet the new exterior design creates a more stylish and modern persona that is unique in today’s small SUV segment,” Boniface noted.

“The Encore GX is the first Buick in North America to sport our revamped interior and new Virtual Cockpit System,” said Boniface. “It’s rare to get such an elevated, tech-forward interior in a vehicle at this starting price. We wanted to uplift every aspect of the Encore GX and put the entire small SUV segment on notice,” he observed.

Throughout the Encore GX interior are soft-touch materials and contrasting stitching for a premium vibe. The ST gets a flat-bottom steering wheel to emphasize its sportier nature. The cabin benefits from Buick’s QuietTuning system, which keeps the interior quiet and comfortable.
