Encore Trim Levels

Powering the Encore is a turbocharged 1.4-liter engine that develops 138 horsepower and 148 lb-ft of torque, teamed to a six-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard, and all models other than the base can get all-wheel drive as an option.

The Encore gets impressive fuel economy figures, with an EPA-estimated 25 mpg city/30 mpg highway for models with front-wheel drive.* With all-wheel drive, the Encore returns 24 mpg city/29 mpg highway.

We'll examine the different trim levels and see what each one brings to the table.
