Engine confidence comes standard for both the 2017 Encore and the 2017 Escape. Both vehicles have a standard four-cylinder engine that produces over 135 horsepower and offers over 145 lb-ft of torque. The Buick Encore's smaller engine also manages to achieve up to 25 miles per gallon in the city and 33 miles per gallon on the highway. Put that together with the slightly lower starting MSRP and the 2017 Buick Encore gives you a little smaller dent in your budget.
When it comes to interior features, the Encore doesn't fall behind the Ford Escape. Both SUVs have a standard six-speaker audio system with standard steering wheel mounted audio controls and Bluetooth compatibility. The Encore, however, has leatherette seating trim and heated door mirrors to go along with the larger wheels for a more luxurious driving experience.
