Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Trailblazer than in the Buick Encore, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Buick Encore and the Chevrolet Trailblazer.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Buick Encore as you will with the Chevrolet Trailblazer, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Buick Encore is somewhat more expensive than the Chevrolet Trailblazer. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Buick Encore and the Chevrolet Trailblazer have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Buick Encore is a little narrower than the Chevrolet Trailblazer, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The Buick Encore is slightly shorter than the Chevrolet Trailblazer, which may make it easier to park.

Handling
The Buick Encore has the same turning radius as the Chevrolet Trailblazer, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Buick Encore has a little more horsepower than the Chevrolet Trailblazer.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the Buick Encore does a much better job of transmitting its engine's horsepower to its wheels than the Chevrolet Trailblazer.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Buick Encore and the Chevrolet Trailblazer. The Buick Encore has less cargo space than the Chevrolet Trailblazer, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Buick Encore comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Chevrolet Trailblazer.
