Buick’s 2016 Encore Sport Touring Offers Turbocharged Engine, Winged Rear Spoiler


Buick today introduced its 2016 Encore Sport Touring featuring a 1.4 liter turbocharged engine, a winged-rear spoiler, and 18-inch aluminum wheels.

“The all-new Encore Sport Touring broadens (Encore’s) base, giving customers more choices — along with more performance, more technology, and more efficiency,” says Duncan Aldred, U.S. vice president of Buick.

Aldred says the exterior of the Encore features body-color door handles, blue-accented projector-beam headlamps, and heated outside rearview mirrors.

The vehicle generates an estimated 177 pounds per feet of torque and 153 horsepower, and offers a six-speed automatic transmission start-stop technology to improve fuel efficiency.

The 2016 Encore Sport Touring also features a voice-activated infotainment system, OnStar connectivity including a Wi-Fi hotspot, a rearview camera system, noise cancelation technology, and 10 standard air bags.

Encore Sport Touring includes a Convenience Package, which adds a 120-volt power outlet, dual-zone climate control, fog lamps, and remote starting, among other features.

The vehicle will be available in the fall.
