Originating back to just 2012, the Buick Encore lineup has been a part of the Buick model lineup for almost nine years. One such model to stem from the subcompact crossover was the Buick Encore GX model, introduced in 2019.
Today, the 2021 Buick Encore GX is a slightly-larger counterpart to the main Encore line while offering premium features inside its small crossover body. But within the model itself, customers can find three total trim levels: Preferred, Select, and Essence options. At Palmen GM, we provide an overview of the models below:

When looking for the right 2021 Buick Encore GX, the above table may provide some help when it comes to package availability and changes at each trim level. While every model has a standard 1.2-liter engine (mentioned below), only the Select and Essence have access to the 1.3-liter ECOTEC® Turbo engine. Meanwhile, the same two trim levels provide speaker, front seat, and climate control upgrades from the Preferred model. However, the Essence trim level adds a Rainsense™ Automatic Wiper feature and has access to several packages, such as the Convenience package for additional comfort and technology.
Besides the available differences, the 2021 Buick Encore GX has a slew of standard features across the board. Each trim level has a standard ECOTEC® 1.2-Liter Turbocharged engine. The powertrain offers 137 horsepower and 162 ft-lbs of torque. It’s paired with a Selectable Stop/Start System to improve upon fuel economy, giving it an estimated 28 Combined MPG. Every model also receives a standard Buick® Infotainment system with an 8-inch Diagonal Color Touchscreen. Other standard features include:
