The 2021 Buick Encore GX and the 2021 Chevrolet Trailblazer are sibling vehicles as they are both made under the General Motors (GM) umbrella. If you’re struggling to choose between these two subcompact SUVs, much of your decision will be based on the aesthetic and technology offerings of these two SUVs, as the Encore GX is a more premium SUV with extra features the Trailblazer does not offer. Let’s see how these two General Motors subcompacts stack up.
As both the Encore GX and the Trailblazer are made by GM, they offer identical powertrain offerings. The base option is a turbo 1.2-liter engine with 137 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque mated to a continuously variable transmission while the available option is a turbo 1.3-liter with 155 horsepower and 174 pound-feet of torque and a nine-speed automatic transmission. These SUVs earn respectable fuel economy for their class and size.
The interior of these two vehicles is where they are largely set apart. While the Encore GX exudes the luxury and craftsmanship that Buick is known for, the Trailblazer cannot keep up, and it has many hard plastic surfaces instead of the soft, high-quality surfaces found in the Encore GX. Both SUVs come standard with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto, but only the Encore GX offers the cutting-edge Buick Marketplace. This in-car application allows you to find gas stations, pay for your gas, and even order takeout all from your Encore GX.
The Encore GX and Trailblazer are rather evenly matched in terms of interior space, but only the Encore GX has underfloor cargo storage to keep lesser-used items like jumper cables, a first-aid kit, or a winter emergency kit out of the main cargo space. Overall, the interior of the Encore GX is much more upscale than the Trailblazer.
Both the Buick Encore GX and the Chevy Trailblazer offer a robust list of standard driver assistance features. The Encore GX offers automatic emergency braking, a following distance indicator, forward collision alert, front pedestrian braking, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, a rearview camera, and the GM Teen Driver feature. The Trailblazer comes with all of the same features. The Teen Driver feature, which is unique to GM, allows you to set speed and volume limits, activate certain driver assistance features, and monitor the progress of a learning driver.
