SAFETY

Smart features can help you enjoy safe travels. That’s why the 2021 Buick Encore GX comes standard with Buick Driver Confidence and a suite of available advanced safety features.

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’s Owner's Manual for important feature limitations and information.

BUICK DRIVER CONFIDENCE

Whether you’re navigating city traffic or backing out of a parking spot, these standard, integrated active safety technologies keep you confidently on the road. Some can even 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® and Front Pedestrian Braking.

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 80 km/h 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 so you can quickly take action. 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. This feature works at speeds below 80 km/h. 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 steering.

U.S. MODEL SHOWN.

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® AUTO HIGH BEAMS

To enhance nighttime visibility, IntelliBeam® Auto High Beams automatically turns on the headlamps’ high beams when sensors detect appropriate ambient light conditions and then turns the high beams off as conditions change, such as when another vehicle is approaching.

AVAILABLE SAFETY & DRIVER-ASSISTANCE TECHNOLOGIES

LANE CHANGE ALERT WITH SIDE BLIND ZONE ALERT

LANE CHANGE ALERT WITH SIDE BLIND ZONE ALERT

The available Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert can provide side-mirror visual alerts when a detected moving vehicle is quickly approaching or is in your side blind zone. It can help you avoid lane change collisions.

ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL–CAMERA

ADAPTIVE CRUISE CONTROL–CAMERA

The available Adaptive Cruise Control can automatically maintain a driver-selected gap time from the detected vehicle you’re following while you steer. This feature reduces the need to frequently brake and accelerate when you’re driving.

REAR VISION CAMERA

REAR VISION CAMERA

The Rear Vision Camera provides a display of the scene directly behind the vehicle to help you park and avoid objects when in Reverse at low speeds.

AUTOMATIC PARKING ASSIST WITH BRAKING

AUTOMATIC PARKING ASSIST WITH BRAKING

The available Automatic Parking Assist with Braking can search for a parallel or perpendicular parking space, then steer and brake your vehicle into that space using limited braking. While the feature steers and tells you when to shift gears, you may need to override and take control.

HIGH DEFINITION SURROUND VISION

HIGH DEFINITION SURROUND VISION

The available HD Surround Vision uses multiple cameras to display a digital overhead image of the area around your vehicle along with Rear Vision Camera or front views. It works at low speeds and may help you park and avoid nearby objects. You can select additional views on your camera display.

REAR CROSS TRAFFIC ALERT

REAR CROSS TRAFFIC ALERT

The available Rear Cross Traffic Alert can warn you of detected left or right cross traffic behind your vehicle when you’re in Reverse.
