2017 Buick Encore (Essence) - how to find engine size?

2017 Encore Essence
I recently bought a 2017 Buick Encore with Essence trim. The general vehicle specs say that this model can come with either a 138 or 152 hp 1.4L turbo engine. For the life of me I can't figure out which engine I have. If I look up the VIN it just tells me the 1.4L turbo without the horsepower. How do I tell which engine I have? Thanks in advance!

There should be a sticker on the core support with an engine code on it. That’s the family your engine belongs to. All you need to do is cross reference the code using Google University to find the HP

If you find A14NET or LUJ as your engine code, you have the base 138hp 1.4; if you find B14XFT or LE2 as the engine code on your Encore, you have the uplevel 1.4 engine.

Thanks for the codes. Where do I find the engine code?

Here is a picture of the 153 hp optional engine:

The optional engine has the start-stop feature, while the base engine does not.
