The official presentation of the American crossovers will be held at the Shanghai Motor Show on April 15 of this year. About the date of commencement of sales and prices for new items so far nothing is known.

Introduced in Europe as the Opel Mokka, the Buick Encore subcompact crossover is about to receive a new (second generation) generation. The official presentation of the car – will be presented and Encore GX, will be held at the auto show in Shanghai (China).

What is Encore GX? According to the official press release, the new Encore GX is slightly larger in size than the standard model. On the published teaser, both crossovers are shown. Of course, this image does not allow us to consider the new items in detail, but we can, at least, observe that the design of the rear lights has undergone significant changes compared to the current version of the model. Lantern units now extend to the back door and have slightly different graphics.

The technical characteristics of American crossovers are still kept secret, but Buick says that the Encore models will use the nine-speed Hydra-Matic transmission and the newly developed CVT variator.

We believe that the red car on the right is the “big” Encore GX, it is obvious that this version of the car will also receive an extended wheelbase. It has not yet been decided whether the GX will be available in North America or not, but there is at least one reason to believe that this will happen. Buick registered the product name Encore GX in the USA last September.
