A Few Of the Key Differences Between the 2021 Buick Encore and Encore GX

2021 Buick Encore GX | Memphis, TN

If you’d like a small SUV for daily commutes and family adventures, the 2021 Buick Encore and Encore GX are two of the best options on the market. To decide which one is right for you, check out the following differences between the two models.

Trim levels

The 2021 Encore gives you the choice between two trims: Encore and Preferred. Front-wheel drive is standard on both, and all-wheel drive is available for the Preferred. Meanwhile, the trim levels of the 2021 Encore GX include Preferred, Select, and Essence. Front-wheel drive also comes standard on these models, but you can also upgrade to all-wheel drive for each.

Engine options

No matter which trim of the Encore you choose, it features the 138-horsepower 1.4-liter Turbo engine. The Encore GX has two engine options: the 137-horsepower ECOTEC 1.2-liter Turbo and the 155-horsepower ECOTEC 1.3-liter Turbo.

Interior space

The Encore is the smaller of the two SUVs, coming with 18.8 cubic feet of cargo volume behind the second row and 48.4 cubic feet behind the first row. The Encore GX has 23.5 cubic feet of space with the rear seats up and 50.2 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down. This, among other reasons, is why the Encore GX has a higher price tag.

If you want a more compact and affordable model, consider the Encore. If you want more space, power, and trim choices, select the Encore GX. We proudly offer each SUV at Sunrise Buick GMC at Covington Pike.

Awesome Updates Coming to the 2021 GMC Sierra 1500

2020 GMC Sierra 1500 | Memphis, TN

GMC is great at making sure its family of trucks is freshly updated each year with new technology and capabilities. The automaker has added a number of awesome new features to the 2021 GMC Sierra 1500, and the truck lovers at Sunrise Buick GMC at Covington Pike have compiled a few of our favorites below.

More Affordable: It’s unusual for a vehicle to get a price decrease as time goes on, but GMC has improved the price of its diesel Sierra 1500. The 3.0-liter turbodiesel Duramax variant of the 2021 GMC Sierra 1500 is now priced $1,500 less than last year.

Improved Hauling: In addition to having a more attractive price, the diesel edition of the Sierra 1500 is now able to tow up to 9,300 pounds of gear for your next weekend trip to the lake. The 2.7-liter Turbo powertrain also gains over a ton of hauling capacity.

New Trailer Camera Options: If you frequently travel with a camper or a boat, you’re going to love the five new camera views in the 2021 GMC Sierra 1500. Plus, a Jack-Knife Alert lets you know when your trailer is too close to the corners of your truck bed, while the Cargo Bed Hitch Guidance view makes it easier than ever to hook up your camper.
