The 2019 Encore's forgiving ride makes long commutes much more comfortable. All Encores come with a standard six-speed auto transmission. FWD is standard, and AWD can be had by those who need additional traction in icy, muddy, or wet conditions. Buyers have two powertrain options. The standard engine is a 1.4L turbocharged four-cylinder that offers 138hp and 148 lb. ft. of torque.

With its two engine options and the availability of AWD, the Buick Encore's fuel economy varies widely. In every configuration, the vehicle scores over 30mpg in highway driving, with the available turbocharged four-cylinder earning a slightly higher rating. This upgraded version gets up to 27/33/30 city/highway/combined, while the standard Encore gets a still-respectable 26/21/28 rating. It's important to consider that, while the Encore's more powerful engine consumes more fuel, it requires less effort to move the vehicle, which improves overall numbers. Its stop and start technology turns the engine off at stoplights and in traffic for an additional increase in fuel economy. See it today at Brad Deery Motors serving Clinton Iowa.
