Buick Mulls a Bigger Engine for a More Powerful Encore

more powerful Encore

The customers have spoken, and Buick has heard!

Buick is already looking ahead to a bump in horsepower to make a more powerful Encore. The current 1.4-liter turbo-charged engine produces a respectable 138 hp, but an even stronger motor may be in the works.

The AWD small luxury SUV isn’t lacking anything under the hood, but in order to meet customer demands, there may be a more powerful Encore in the near future. “I’m looking to grow volumes, and we’re always looking at customer feedback for what changes we need to make,” commented Duncan Aldred, US vice president of Buick-GMC. “But there’s always a trade-off between cost and benefit.”

The value-packed Encore is already the third strongest seller of the Buick lineup, behind the Enclave and LaCrosse, and was recently awarded a five-star overall safety rating by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
