The 2019 Encore remains in healthy supply nationwide. The mid-range Preferred model is most common and generally offers the best pricing. The base trim is excluded from factory offers.
The line-topping Premium trim has been discontinued, but most of its equipment is now available on the Essence.
The carryover 2020 Encore has started arriving at dealers, but is too new for any factory incentives. Later this year, Buick will introduce a larger (but still compact) crossover called Encore GX.
Current factory offers will remain in effect through October 31, 2019 and are available on a national basis unless otherwise noted.
Up to 20% off:
Buick now offers 16% off the MSRP of 2019 Encore models in stock. For current customers of non-GM brands, the discount increases to 20%.
You stand to save a bundle with this promotion. The potential discount on the Essence AWD, for example, is $6,359 — a terrific amount for the Encore.
What's up with leases:
You can now lease a 2019 Encore Preferred starting at $199 for 39 months (10,000 miles a year) with $4,429 due at signing. The effective monthly cost is $313, which falls just short of a good value in our book. Terms will undoubtedly improve before the model sells out.
The initial offer on the 2020 Encore Preferred requires $1,000 more at signing, but is otherwise the same. This, too, will certainly improve in the months ahead.
0% APR + cash:
Instead of the other incentives, Buick continues to offer 0% financing for 72 months on the 2019 Encore of your choice. The deal now comes with $1,000 bonus cash.
There are no financing specials yet on the 2020 Encore.
