FEATURES

SAFETY

Smart features can help you enjoy safe travels. That’s why the Buick Encore GX comes standard with Buick Driver Confidence, a suite of advanced safety features.

BUICK DRIVER CONFIDENCE

Whether you’re navigating city traffic or backing out of a parking spot, these standard, integrated active safety technologies are designed to help you drive confidently on the road. Some can alert you to potential hazards. 

Buick Driver Confidence includes the following innovative safety technology features: Forward Collision Alert, Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Following Distance Indicator, IntelliBeam® auto high beams and Front Pedestrian Braking.

Safety or driver-assistance features are no substitute for the driver’s responsibility to operate the vehicle in a safe manner. The driver should remain attentive to traffic, surroundings and road conditions at all times. Visibility, weather and road conditions may affect feature performance. Read the vehicle Owner’s Manual for more important feature limitations and information.

FRONT PEDESTRIAN BRAKING

Front Pedestrian Braking can help you avoid or reduce the severity of a front-end collision with a pedestrian it detects directly ahead of you. It provides pedestrian alerts and can even automatically provide hard emergency braking or enhance the driver’s hard braking. The system works at speeds below 50 mph during the daytime. It has limited nighttime and low visibility performance.

FORWARD COLLISION ALERT AND AUTOMATIC EMERGENCY BRAKING

Forward Collision Alert can warn you if it detects a potential front-end collision with a vehicle you’re following. It can also provide a tailgating alert if you’re following a vehicle much too closely. Automatic Emergency Braking works with Forward Collision Alert to help you avoid or reduce the severity of a front-end collision with a detected vehicle you’re following. This feature works at speeds below 50 mph. Camera technology is used to automatically provide hard emergency braking or enhance the driver’s hard braking.

LANE KEEP ASSIST WITH LANE DEPARTURE WARNING

Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning uses a brief, gentle steering wheel turn to alert you when you may be unintentionally drifting out of detected lane lines, so you can steer to stay safely in your lane. If needed, you may receive additional Lane Departure Warning alerts. System alerts do not occur if you’re using your turn signal or it detects you may be intentionally leaving your lane.

FOLLOWING DISTANCE INDICATOR

Following Distance Indicator displays the gap time in seconds between your vehicle and a detected vehicle you’re following. This can help you decide if you’re following much too closely.

INTELLIBEAM

IntelliBeam® can automatically turn the vehicle’s high-beam headlamps on and off according to surrounding traffic conditions.
