Buick Encore GX Towing Capacity

2023 Buick Encore GX Towing

Buick SUVs offer world-class luxury for a more budget-oriented price than most luxury competitors, but before you bring a model like the Buick Encore home to Raleigh, you might have some questions about its capabilities. Can you tow with a Buick Encore? Yes, however, only the Buick Encore GX models are capable of towing. The Encore GX is a more powerful, sport-oriented version of the standard Encore. With that said, what’s the 2023 Buick Encore GX towing capacity? Hendrick Buick GMC Cary has more information in the towing guide down below.



How Much Can You Tow with a Buick Encore GX Model? 

The Buick Encore towing capacity for the GX models maxes out at 1,000 pounds. If you own an ultralight travel trailer, a couple of canoes, an ATV, or a jetski, these are all examples of what you can tow with a 1,000-pound limit. 

Of course, you need the proper equipment before you start towing in Apex. To ensure a safe and secure experience, ask our team about adding these accessories to your Encore GX build:

  • Trailer Hitch: You need a trailer hitch to take advantage of the Buick Encore GX towing capacity.
  • Electric Harness: Integrating your trailer lights with your vehicle’s exterior lights is critical to towing safety; the electric harness will help you do just that.
  • Stabilitrak: The Stabilitrak electronic stability control system is standard on every Buick model, and it will offer more confidence when you’re utilizing the Buick Encore towing capacity on your GX. With Stabilitrak, it’s easier to stay in control on the Holly Springs roads.
  • Safety Tech: Driver-assist safety features like Side Blind Zone Alert, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and an HD Rear Vision Camera make you more aware of your surroundings while you’re trailering.

Encore GX Engine and Performance Details 

The Buick Encore GX towing capacity is supported by a 1.2L Turbocharged engine and a Continuously Variable Transmission. Whether you’re towing a jetski for a weekend of fun out on the water or you’re just cruising around town, you’ll appreciate driving dynamics like 137 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque. Drivetrain options include FWD or Intelligent AWD — we recommend AWD for added confidence when towing!
