July 29th, 2021 by

When you need the cargo space and performance power of an SUV and the small footprint and sharp handling of a sedan, you can’t beat the new Buick Encore. This sleek compact crossover is easy to maneuver on busy roads in Southgate, but it offers a surprisingly spacious cabin to accommodate all your passengers and their gear.

If you’re already considering a 2021 or 2022 Encore as your next vehicle in Brownstown, you’re probably wondering what Buick Encore trim levels are available. While the Encore Preferred is the sole trim level, you’ll choose between FWD and AWD Buick Encore configurations. Read below for a closer look at what features and technology you can expect from the Buick Encore Preferred, and then find yours in our new Encore inventory at Moran Buick GMC!



FWD vs. AWD Buick Encore Configurations

As we noted above, the Preferred is the only trim level for this model. However, you’ll need to decide between two Buick Encore configurations: front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. Here’s what to keep in mind as you make the call:

  • If you’re looking for maximum fuel efficiency in mostly flat roads and normal driving conditions, the base FWD Buick Encore may be right for you.
  • If you’re looking for enhanced control and handling in difficult driving conditions — such as icy roads, heavy snow, or muddy trails — then you should consider the AWD version. However, the extra power sent to the rear axle will cost you in terms of efficiency. Compare performance specs for the FWD vs. AWD Buick Encore configurations, below:

2022 Buick Encore FWD

  • Ecotec 1.4L turbocharged engine
  • 155 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque
  • 24 mpg city/32 mpg highway

2022 Buick Encore AWD

  • Ecotec 1.4L turbocharged engine
  • 155 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque
  • 23 mpg city/30 mpg highway

2022 Buick Encore Features & Highlights

There’s one major advantage to having so few Buick Encore trim levels to choose from: you’ll enjoy a broad selection of luxury features and amenities without needing to upgrade. With all models offering the following features as standard, the Encore is a fantastic value for Dearborn families and commuters alike:

  • Buick QuietTuning™ technology
