2022 Buick Encore GX Essence
By Cathy Droz
I am so tired of people saying… it’s not my father’s Buick. By this time if you say anything you might say grandfather’s. Buick has been producing so many excellent vehicles for decades and the Encore is a perfect example of performance and style.
The color “sunset glow metallic” gets your attention immediately and since I’m all about color both inside and out, the two tone “whisper beige/ebony accents” gave a sporty yet classy look.
I took this SUV to the Little League series and parked it beside large extended SUV’s where most of the families have three or more children, filled with equipment, coolers and lawn chairs. Granted the two of us didn’t have all of that but we did put the third row of seating down to accommodate our stadium chairs, cooler, umbrella and my large brim hat.
Since the Arizona climate is about 107 to 109 lately and gas is $5.00 I was pleased with the A/C coming on quick and cold and getting 32 mpg highway.
When asked about the price and the amenities … such as: does it have the cordless charger and cargo load floor, I was happy to say YES and show them.
The team has gone on to STATE finals this week, so wish us luck and hopefully I’ll have another Buick to take to the game.
AS TESTED: $33,795
