2021 Buick Encore GX Safety Features

There’s a lot to keep up with when you’re navigating busy streets in Charlotte or Raleigh. That’s why Buick Encore GX safety messaging is designed to provide visual alerts and audible reminders to keep you apprised of everything that’s happening at any given moment. The 2021 Encore GX is standard-equipped with Buick Driver Confidence, the brand’s new safety suite that features these baseline technologies:

  • Forward Collision Alert – Warns you of potential front-end collisions.
  • Automatic Emergency Braking – Works in tandem with Forward Collision Alert. At speeds below 50 mph, this feature uses camera technology to help you avoid or reduce the severity of a collision. If a collision seems likely, it will enhance your hard braking or intervene with automatic emergency hard braking to help you stop quickly.
  • Lane Keep Assist (LKA) with Lane Departure Warning (LDW) – If you appear to be unintentionally leaving the confines of your lane, LKA gently guides you back to your lane. If needed, LDW alerts will activate to let you know you’re drifting. If you have the turn signal on or appear to be intentionally leaving a lane, the system will not activate.
  • Following Distance Indicator – Alerts you when you’re following the vehicle ahead too closely by showing you the gap time (in seconds) between the two of you.
  • Front Pedestrian Braking – If a pedestrian is detected in front of you, the system alerts you to them. If it seems like you won’t stop on time, the system will enhance your hard braking or intervene with emergency automatic hard braking.
  • IntelliBeam® Auto High Beams – Your Encore GX’s high-beam headlamps are automatically turned on/off in accordance with the current conditions.

Buick Encore GX safety messaging and features support you at every turn, helping to keep you and other drivers safe on the road. Of course, Buick Driver Confidence is not a substitute for safe and attentive driving. These features are designed to aid you during unexpected or unforeseen situations, but it is your responsibility to keep an eye on the road ahead and react correctly.
