Encore Picked as a ‘Must Test Drive’ Vehicle for 2013

2013 EncoreWith fresh and functional designs, the 2013 Buick lineup is aimed at attracting shoppers new to the Buick brand. Traditionally, the brand has been stereotyped as one you’d see parked in front of a golf course or bingo hall. Buick used to be thought of by many a brand your parents or even your grandparents would drive. Gone is that way of thinking. The new Buick lineup has been reinvented to offer stylish luxury vehicles that appeal to all ages. The 2013 Buick Encore is the latest Buick to break the mold. This all-new compact luxury crossover is currently on its way to dealerships nationwide. Autotrader.com was so impressed by the new Encore that the automotive marketplace named Encore to its recent list of ‘Top 10 Test Drive Vehicles for 2013’.

The 2013 Buick Encore is an all-new model. It has been praised for its composed handling and feature-packed, upscale interior. Regardless of trim level, each 2013 Encore is equipped with a backup camera, a 7-inch color display with Buick’s IntelliLink infotainment system, satellite radio, and wireless cell phone hookup. This compact crossover also delivers impressive fuel efficiency. The base 1.4-liter four-cylinder engine that powers Encore produces 138 horsepower and allows the vehicle to achieve EPA fuel estimations of 25 mpg city and 33 mpg highway, some of the best estimations in its class.

As of last week, the 2013 Buick Encore began being shipped to dealerships across the country. Watch for its arrival at Crawford Buick GMC. Visit our El Paso dealership in person or online at www.crawfordbuickgmc.com for more information.

Encore Offers Big Comforts in a Smaller Package

2013 EncoreWhen it arrives early next year, the 2013 Buick Encore will have a fresh look and smaller design to distinguish it from its siblings. But don’t think that means Buick is cutting corners with this small luxury crossover. Encore will encompass all the same quiet, comfortable, and refined characteristics that define other Buick models. With advanced acoustic technology and attention to detail, the 2013 Encore takes the best luxury features found in other Buick vehicles, such as Bose Active Noise Cancellation, and tucks them nicely inside a compact crossover design.

“Our goal in developing Encore was two-fold – to design a vehicle that sets a refinement standard in the segment for customers who are new to Buick, and to deliver a vehicle that current Buick customers interested in downsizing can get in and fell at home,” said Jim Danahy, Encore chief engineer. “Active Noise Cancellation technology is a smart way to maximize luxury, space and efficiency together.”

With an EPA-estimated combined fuel economy rating of 28 mpg, the 2013 Encore will be cruising into dealerships in early 2013. Watch for its arrival at Crawford Buick GMC.

2013 Enclave Features Industry-First Lighting Technology

Buick Enclave taillightThe Enclave crossover from Buick has set the precedent for signature Buick design cues. The new 2013 Enclave will feature yet another industry-first with new advanced lighting technology.

In conjunction with 3M, Buick has created a new unique LED taillight design. The contemporary design highlights a complex shape filled with a soft red glow.

“As a brand driven by intelligent design and technology, Buick has to be at the forefront of purposeful, modern design cues,” said Mark Adams, executive director of Buick Design. “Our signature LED lighting serves a double purpose of providing a premium look and making sure our vehicles are unmistakable in the eyes and mirrors of other drivers on the road. Some of the new Enclave’s design cues will carry over to other Buick models to come, but every execution will be true to each model’s character.”

Watch for the arrival of the 2013 Buick Enclave later this year at Crawford Buick GMC. Visit our El Paso dealership in person or online at www.crawfordautos.com.
