As with the releasement of the new 2023 Buick Encore mode, this subcompact crossover will be the last of this generation. This model should be discontinued in the USA and Canada. Some sources that this model should be replaced with a similar model battery-electric Buick crossover model which is planned for 2025. The future battery-electric Buick models will have GM’s BEV3 platform and will use Ultium lithium-ion batteries and Ultium Drive electric motors.

The decision about the departure from this model came up with the idea of the 10th anniversary of the releasement of Buick Encore. The main prototype was released back in 2013, so by 2023, the 10th generation will be rounded.

The upgraded version of the new 2023 Buick Encore should be full of steady and stable materials. The SUV segment is always on upgrade and even now, the UA market has more of these things to offer. The masculine appearance of the predecessor’s exterior should remain the same as it was. The previous model was designed with inspiration from the Chinese market version.

The range of colors will be available according to the trim level you choose. The redesign if is required should be visible with dimensions regarding a longer body. The ground clearance should remain the same also followed by the existing tire choice. The frontal grille should have sportier look with larger frontal light. The lighting system is a full operative especially in dark mode and for night driving.


The interior of a new 2023 Buick Encore will be spacious and most likely better furnished compared to its predecessor. The reason for such an upgrade is confirming its discontinuation by the GM carmaker. The model will be available in different trim levels which will have different features and engine stamina.

The dashboard seems to be the same if not similar to the previous model. The touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, three months of SiriusXM, active noise cancellation will be available as standard offers. We can also see the six-way power driver’s seat, leather on the steering wheel, cloth and leatherette for the seats which is more than appealing and eye-catching. The single-zone manual air conditioning is also featured.

    I am very interested in the 2023 GNX or 2024. Also, the Regal model. I am a true lover of Buick sedans since 1965. Please keep me posted.
