2021 Buick Encore








This is NOT the new 2021 Buick Encore GX. The GX is larger and more upscale.
This is the redesigned "regular" Encore. At least for the Chinese market.

But since we get the exact same Encore GX, and GM already mentioned a new "regular encore" is on its way as well, this is probably our new 2021 Encore as well.
Buick has also shown the press a prototype of a "small upcoming coupe SUV".

The Chinese market version is powered by a choice of a 1.0 Liter Turbo engine or a "larger" 1.3 Liter Turbo.
Looks like GM actually spent some money on these models. As this has its own design. And doesn't share its interior with the larger Encore GX.

What do you think?
Is this our next Encore?

Is this the new Opel Mokka as well?

I don't know whether this "regular" updated Encore will come to the US, but they have to freshen our "regular" Encore in some way. I just don't see the big deal either in the colors shown or the "blacked-out" effects. They look like "sport" models rather than premium luxury vehicles.

Maybe it's the exterior color combination, but it doesn't look very upscale. Hopefully it will look better in person. Definitely has a very GM Blazer look to it.

That really couldn't look more like Opel's completely unrelated Grandland X if it tried. It's going to be interesting to see if Opel and Buick continue to use the same design language going forward, despite the two brands now having different owners.

I think it looks much better than the larger GX version. Not sure why the two models are sharing the same model name.
