Buick Encore: Driving and Operating / Cruise Control

Buick Encore 2020-2022 Owner's Manual / Driving and Operating / Cruise Control

The cruise control lets the vehicle maintain a speed of about 40 km/h (25 mph) or more without keeping your foot on the accelerator. Cruise control does not work at speeds below 40 km/h (25 mph).

Warning

Cruise control can be dangerous where you cannot drive safely at a steady speed. Do not use cruise control on winding roads or in heavy traffic.

Cruise control can be dangerous on slippery roads. On such roads, fast changes in tire traction can cause excessive wheel slip, and you could lose control. Do not use cruise control on slippery roads.

The vehicle has a Traction Control System (TCS) or StabiliTrak/Electronic Stability Control (ESC) system that begins to limit wheel spin while using cruise control and the cruise control will automatically disengage. See Traction Control/Electronic Stability Control. If a collision alert occurs when cruise control is activated, cruise control is disengaged. See Forward Collision Alert (FCA) System. When road conditions allow you to safely use it again, cruise control can be turned back on.

If the brakes are applied, cruise control disengages.

Setting Cruise Control

If Buick Encore. Cruise Control is on when not in use, SET/− or RES/+ could get bumped and go into cruise when not desired. Keep o off when cruise control is not being used.

To set a speed:

  1. Press Buick Encore. Cruise Control to turn cruise control on.
  2. Get up to the speed desired.
  3. Move the thumbwheel down toward SET/− and release it.
  4. Remove your foot from the accelerator.

The cruise control indicator on the instrument cluster turns green after cruise control has been set to the desired speed. See Instrument Cluster.

Resuming a Set Speed

If the cruise control is set at a desired speed and then the brakes are applied or Buick Encore. Cruise Control is pressed, the cruise control is disengaged without erasing the set speed from memory. Once the vehicle speed is about 40 km/h (25 mph) or greater, move the thumbwheel up toward RES/+ briefly. The vehicle returns to the previously set speed.

Increasing Speed While Using Cruise Control

If the cruise control system is already activated:

  • Move the thumbwheel up toward RES/+ and hold it until the desired speed is reached, then release it.
  • To increase vehicle speed in small increments, move the thumbwheel up toward RES/+ briefly. For each press, the vehicle goes about 1 km/h (1 mph) faster.

The speedometer reading can be displayed in either English or metric units. See Driver Information Center (DIC). The increment value used depends on the units displayed.

Reducing Speed While Using Cruise Control If the cruise control system is already activated:

  • Move the thumbwheel toward SET/− and hold until the desired lower speed is reached, then release it.
  • To decrease the vehicle speed in small increments, move the thumbwheel toward SET/− briefly. For each press, the vehicle goes about 1 km/h (1 mph) slower. The speedometer reading can be displayed in either English or metric units. See Driver Information Center (DIC). The increment value used depends on the units displayed.

Passing Another Vehicle While Using Cruise Control

Use the accelerator pedal to increase the vehicle speed. When you take your foot off the pedal, the vehicle slows down to the previous set cruise control speed. While pressing the accelerator pedal or shortly following the release to override cruise control, briefly moving the thumbwheel toward SET/− will result in cruise set to the current vehicle speed.

Using Cruise Control on Hills

How well cruise control works on hills depends on the vehicle speed, load, and the steepness of the hills. When going up steep hills, you might have to step on the accelerator pedal to maintain the vehicle speed. When going downhill, you might have to brake or shift to a lower gear to keep your speed down. If the brake pedal is applied, cruise control will disengage.

Ending Cruise Control

There are four ways to end cruise control:

  • To disengage cruise control, step lightly on the brake pedal.
  • Press Buick Encore. Cruise Control.
  • Shift the transmission to N (Neutral).
  • To turn off cruise control, press Buick Encore. Cruise Control.

Erasing Speed Memory

The cruise control set speed is erased from memory if Buick Encore. Cruise Control is pressed or if the vehicle is turned off.
