“A Buick all-wheel drive system has to deliver the best traction possible, and it has to do it in a way that’s totally imperceptible to the driver,” said Encore Chief Engineer Jim Danahy. “We engineered Encore’s lightweight, responsive and refined system to deliver on the expectations of demanding luxury buyers.”
The 2013 Buick Encore’s AWD system is unlike the tradition system that goes into action after a slip is detected. The 2013 Encore utilizes a magnetic charge to engage a clutch on the rear axle preemptively when the Encore is most likely to slip. If no slippage occurs, the preemptive torque control is automatically disengaged by a computer control. This insures that the AWD system is not activated unless completely necessary.
The innovative AWD drive system saves the driver more at the pump by being a lighter and not going into AWD unless completely necessary. The AWD system is yet another shining example of Buicks commitment to deliver the most efficient and high-performing vehicles available.
“Technology is allowing us to translate Buick’s quiet, comfortable ride to smaller vehicles than we could before,” said Danahy. “This all-wheel drive system, like turbocharged engines and Buick QuietTuning technologies, allows drivers to experience that Buick DNA with unprecedented efficiency and maneuverability.”
The 2013 Buick Encore, equipped with the intelligent AWD system, returns 23 mpg city and 30 mpg highway. The standard front-wheel-drive model returns an even more impressive 25 mpg city and 33 mpg highway.
