2017 Buick Encore Debuts with Newfound Pizzazz

2016 Buick Encore
2016 Buick Encore – Available Now at Crawford Buick GMC!

We at Crawford Buick GMC are huge fans of the Buick Encore. In fact, everyone seems to be a fan of it, as it is one of our most sought-after vehicles. It debuted in 2013 and has been a popular choice ever since.

This year is an exciting time for the Encore, as it has finally gotten a makeover! Featuring Buick’s new tricolor insignia, the new Encore has a more refined look than the previous model. It now has a new front grille, altered headlights, and an updated infotainment system.

The new 8-inch infotainment system now offers options such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. There are also better navigation systems and connectivity to more safely use your phone while driving.

The new 2017 Buick Encore debuted at the New York International Auto Show and was an instant success. The Encore will go on sale later this year, and is one of three subcompact crossovers offered by Buick. There is also the Enclave and the brand new Envision compact crossover.

Buick’s Annual Sales Surpass 1.2 Million Vehicles for 3rd Consecutive Time

For the third consecutive year, Buick set a new global sales record on sales of more than 1.2 million vehicles.

Last year’s record was 1,170,115 total vehicles, which was surpassed in mid-December thanks to record sales in China and strong crossover performances in the United States.

In the US, crossover sales increased by 3% across the industry. A whopping 40% of all new vehicles sold in the country are crossovers. The automaker has been tapping into that expanding market with capable vehicles like the Encore and Enclave, which together accounted for 60% of the Buick’s annual sales in the US. In fact, the Encore has been setting record sales for the last 23 straight months.

Sales are expected to continue rising throughout 2016 at Crawford Buick GMC. We anticipate  the arrival of the Cascada convertible and the new 2017 LaCrosse, as well as the all-new Envision compact crossover that has been all the rage in China.
