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.

Buick and GMC Set to Release Nine New Models Over 12 Month Span

GMCGM announced recently nine new and refreshed Buick and GMC models will be introduced by the end of 2013. This announcement comes during Buick and GMC’s third year of consecutive retail gains and consistent sales momentum. The new Buick Encore, Buick Regal, GMC Yukon, and GMC Sierra are among the new and redesigned models being released soon.

In addition to the introduction of these new models, General Motors also plans to offer the luxury Denali trim on four of GMC’s upcoming vehicles. The 2013 Buick Verano and 2013 GMC Terrain are two of the newly designed models now available at Crawford Buick GMC.

General Motors is planning on re-introducing the GMC Canyon to the automotive market this year as well. This mid-sized pickup was discontinued when GMC’s Louisiana factory was shut down. The all-new Canyon will be a sibling to the Chevrolet Colorado, a popular compact pickup.

“We’re not only selling more vehicles, we’re bringing new customers to the Buick and GMC showroom,” explained Brian Sweeney, vice president of Buick and GMC Sales and Service. “Both brands report more than 40 percent conquest sales. Buick was the only automotive brand in the United States to reduce the average age of its buyer during the past five years, and GMC continues to attract more female buyers and- with Denali vehicles- more import and luxury owners.”
