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.

The Yukon Denali has long been one of the most impressive luxury vehicles in the full-size SUV segment, and it continues to get more and more advanced with every passing model year. Of course, you’d worry that all those updates would be pushing the price of the Yukon vastly upward, but that’s actually not the case. Despite another batch of awesome upgrades, the updated Yukon Denali price saw a bump of just $1,300 dollars.
When you take into consideration all the cool stuff the updated Yukon Denali comes with, that number becomes even more impressive. The new Yukon Denali comes with an all-new 8L90 eight-speed transmission, a 6.2-liter Ecotec3 V8 engine, OnStar Wi-Fi capability, and more. That all-new powertrain lineup also gets you 420 horsepower and 460 lb-ft of torque, and it’s even more efficient now with 22 mpg highway rating.
To check out all the different versions of the Yukon Denali, come see us here at Crawford Buick GMC and we’ll take you on a tour of our whole inventory until we find the perfect vehicle for you!

The GMC Yukon has always provided the perfect definition of an SUV. With its rugged looks and its refined interior features, this stylish and capable machine can easily haul a crowd and all their cargo. From the base model to the luxurious Denali trim, the Yukon family has consistently been a top choice among those seeking a capable and attractive sport utility vehicle. To remain a top choice, GMC has revealed the all-new 2015 Yukon family, designed to be more stylish, more capable, and more efficient than ever before.
Refinement is a word that is not often associated with full-size SUVs, however the 2015 Yukon lineup has embraced this term. All-new exterior and interior designs of Yukon and Yukon XL are crafted to be both beautiful and functional. The 2015 Yukon will also feature the new EcoTec3 engine family that is expected to deliver the best V-8 fuel economy for this segment.
“We’ve engineered the Yukon and Yukon XL from the ground up, building on a strong legacy of capability to take them to the top of the segment with exceptional refinement and purposeful technology,” said Tony DiSalle, vice president of GMC marketing. “And when it comes to tasks people rely on a full-size SUV for, they do it better than ever – and with more style.”
The new Yukon family will be built right here in Texas and is expected to arrive at Crawford Buick GMC and dealerships around the country in the first quarter of 2014. For additional information on the next generation Yukon lineup, visit our El Paso dealership in person or online.

eThe Buick Encore is at the top of its class, according to J.D. Power’s APEAL study released last week. The study ranked the Encore higher than every other model in the Sub-Compact CUV segment, establishing its dominance in the category after J.D. Power recognized the Encore as the “Highest Ranked Sub-Compact CUV in Initial Quality (in a tie)” just last month.
Its big brother (or is it a sister?), the Buick Enclave, ranked among the top three in the Midsize CUV category.
The APEAL study is based on more than 83,000 responses from consumers who were asked to rate their satisfaction with their newly-purchased car, based on a total of 77 attributes such as design, comfort, performance, features, and style.
“Recognizing the Encore demonstrates the effort and attention to detail given by our engineers and designers,” said Tony DiSalle, vice president of Buick Marketing. “This award reinforces our focus on putting the customer at the center of everything we do.”

General Motors and Ford recently signed an agreement in which both domestic automakers will share in the development of an all-new generation of advanced automatic transmissions. Wait..did you just read that correctly? Yes, you did. For the third time in the past decade, the two auto giants will combine collaborative efforts to help them both deliver durable transmissions to customers around the world.
“Engineering teams from GM and Ford have already started initial design work on these new transmissions,” said Jim Lanzon, GM vice president of global transmission engineering. “We expect these new transmissions to raise the standard of technology, performance and quality for our customers while helping drive fuel economy improvements into both companies’ future product portfolios. This agreement provides tremendous benefits for both companies.”
This new joint agreement will be to develop 9- and 10-speed automatic transmissions for cars, trucks, SUVs, and crossovers. The new transmissions will be installed in some of Ford’s most popular vehicles and in a variety of GM’s award-winning models.
In the past, the SUV segment was filled with gas guzzling monsters that were great for hauling around passengers and gear, but couldn’t get you very far on a single tank of gas. Fast forward to 2013 and we are now offered an abundance of great SUV choices that combine versatility and good gas mileage. New to the Buick family this year, the 2013 Buick Encore is already making a name for itself as a capable and fuel efficient compact crossover. The 2013 Encore has landed a spot on Kelley Blue Book’s recently published list of the 10 Most Fuel-Efficient SUVs of 2013.
The 2013 Buick Encore arrived at our dealership back in February. It offers signature Buick characteristics like an attractive upscale interior and numerous luxurious features all packaged together in a compact, yet comfortable, crossover. A six-speed automatic transmission is standard and EPA estimated mileage ratings are up to 25 mpg city/33 mpg highway. Even the base model is well equipped with privacy glass, power windows, a rearview camera, steering wheel controls, satellite radio, and Buick’s IntelliLink infotainment system, all standard.
“Fans of basic Buick panache will find plenty to favor in the new Encore, thanks to its combination of refinement and comfort complemented by a bounty of standard/available features, solid value orientation and outstanding fuel economy,” wrote KBB.com Editor Bob Nagy in a review of the 2013 Encore.
