Thus the release date of the newest Encore is expected to be in 2018. This vehicle might even come out somewhere by the middle of the year but a more likely scenario is the very end of the year.

As the North American market does not really care for this model, people were not impressed with the news.

They are keeping the majority of the car the same and have decided to make this model a modern and yet innovative vehicle. What the vehicle brings forth is the same sculptured type of a design that we are used to. Even though they used this kind of a design for the past couple of years, keeping it now is not such a big deal. It will not affect the car in any way. Also, it is going to be a very good addition or the changes for Encore.
The 2019 Buick Encore thus comes with a very sleek body. It really makes it stand out from the rest of crossover models on the market. One of the few changes that are made is the redesign of the wheels, which are a little bit different. As for accessories, they are still using the same ones as last time. Namely, roof-mounted carriers and roof rack cross rails are still available for the car.
What About the Exterior Colors?
The newest 2019 Buick Encore is not going to change the color offer. The look of the car is pretty good and the offered pallet of colors makes it even better. When it comes to the set of the ones used here it includes a total of eight colors. Five of them are available with a lower Dark Argent Metallic hue, while the other three come paired to a Satin Nickel Metallic accent. All in all, this makes the car attractive looking and enables you to customize your car anyway you like.
Current Size of the 2019 Buick Encore
The size of the 2019 Buick Encore will stay the same. As for the majority of the exterior of the new Encore, so will the size will stay the way it was. This is largely going to be effective for the car and bring it the same kind of fame. Also, you rarely see an updated car changing size and this one is not going to be different either.
They will probably save the exterior changes for a different time or when they decide to introduce a new generation model. So far, the vehicle is 168.4 inches long and has a wheelbase of 100.6 inches. The car is 69.9 inches wide and has a height of 65.2 inches. The past FWD models had a curb weight of 3190 lb, while the AWD versions were 3309 lb. This is still not certain if the weight is going to be transferred but there is a very big possibility that it is going to be very similar.
Newest Interior Look of the 2019 Buick Encore
The most part of the changes for the 2019 Buick Encore is inside of the car. Visually, the car is pretty similar. But the packages that they are adding, safety features and comfort additions speak of improvement. And we have a very good looking and modern vehicle on our hands now. The fist noticeable things is the inclusion of newest safety additions. The Encore’s equipment will now include Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Side Blind Zone Alert. The list is also goes further with Siri Eyes Free and text message support.
The comfort improvements are clearly seen on the upper trims, while the base one misses out on the leather enhancement. But what makes this car still look premium is the ambient cabin lighting which includes blue LEDs. The interior also has bright chrome and wood-grain trims seem on the dashboard and the instrument cluster.
Some other technical additions include a full-color, seven-inch LCD display which uses voice-activated IntelliLink radio system. You can use it also with knobs, switches and buttons. This is actually the only part that we do not like about the 2019 Buick Encore as it makes things a little bit crowded.
Finally, the vehicle is also going to have a very quiet cabin as the inside is will have Buick’s QuietTuning with active noise cancellation technology. It helps to block out the sounds and gives a great advantage compared to other rivaling models.

The offer under the hood of the 2019 Buick Encore starts with the same offer from last time. Powering the 2019 version of the Encore is still the turbocharged 1.4-liter Ecotec engine. This baby is quite capable of making 138 horsepower and 148 pound-feet of torque.
They used this engine for the Encore model for quite some time. Even though it has a lot of miles on it already, it is still a very stable and useful addition. We agreed it as a good choices. And the vehicle can continue with it perhaps a while longer. They are going to combine the engine with a Hydra-Matic 6T40 six-speed automatic transmission.
What is the 0-60 mph Speed and Top Speed?
Since there have been no changes for the powertrain of the 2019 Buick Encore, we did not expect to see any changes for the specs of the car. The model has pretty standard rates which they are not going to change for this model year. The car accelerates to 0-60 mph in 9 seconds while the top speed is 120 mph. This is pretty standard for the segment and the carryover specs are not going to be a problem
