2017 Buick Encore Release Date

The new 2017 Buick Encore is worth a look thanks to its quiet interior, long list of safety and tech features, good fuel economy ratings, and top crash-test scores. Even so, its limited interior space, and modest performance curtail its appeal. Its release date should be expected in the middle of 2017.

Looking a little closer will make you realize that the 2017 Buick Encore is still a Buick to its core, but still sports a radical departure from Buick’s luxury sedan’s design. In fact, some of the elements it has retained include the long list of available upscale features, such as a built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot and a heated steering wheel. And, near luxury trappings and a hushed cabin return as well.

The Sport Touring model returns for 2017 and still makes use of the 1.4L turbocharged engine it came with a previous year ago. But now generates additional output thanks to the additional tweaks that Buck has offered the Encore. We are also impressed by the impressive maneuverability the Encore provides when it comes time to fit it into a compact parking space or negotiating in a crowded street. Its acceleration has also been made livelier thanks in part to the suspension upgrades.

Several eccentricities can be expected, though. The list includes tepid performance, a modest cargo and interior space, and mediocre driving dynamics and style. It is for this reason that we think you should check what its competition offers before you purchase the Encore.

Alternatives to check out include the 2017 Mazda CX-5, the 2017 Fiat 500X, the 2017 Honda HR-V, and the 2017 Ford Escape. In all fairness, we think the above models are way much superior to the 2017 Buick Encore, but its inherent Buick-ness nonetheless may appeal those looking for an elevated driving position with a dollop of quietness and comfort.

2017 Buick Encore Engine Specs

Inspiration for the 2017 Buick Encore is offered by two engines fitted beneath its skin. The 1.4 inline four-cylinder turbocharged engine is one of the two mills offered and generates 138 horsepower and 148 pounds-ft. of torque.

The Encore Sport Touring sets itself apart with a beefed-up version of the same engine which produces 153 hp and 177 pounds-ft. of torque. Regardless of the power output, a six-cylinder engine is standard across all models. Buyers have an option of either a FWD or an AWD.

FWD’s EPA rating stands at 33/25/28 mpg on the highway/city/combined, and 30/23/26 mpg for the AWD versions.

Zooming from 0-60 mph with the FWD-equipped Encore requires about 9.8 seconds – an apparently slow acceleration relative to its competition.
