About Buick Encore

When talking about the active long-living American automakers, Buick strikes the mind first. And now it presents the new 2013 Buick Encore with its exquisite design and imposing technical characteristics. It's a nimble luxury 5-passenger crossover. The new model of Buick was first displayed at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit on the 22nd of January and will be available in the early 2013. It shares the GM Gamma II platform with the European Opel Corsa hatchback, though the Encore is smaller in size. The name 'Buick Encore' is used to market this vehicle in the US and China, while it is known as the Vauxhall Mokka on the UK auto market. The 'Encore' name was also used by AMC (American Motors Corporation) for its 1983-1987 subcompact car.

General Motors compares the 2013 Encore with the BMW X1 and Audi Q3 in order to emphasize it beats the rivals, becoming the first in the premium subcompact crossover segment. The wheelbase of 100.6 inches, the overall length of 168.5 inches and the 69.9-inch width make it different from the Buick Verano sedan, Audi A3 hatchback, and even Land Rover Range Rover Evoque. These indices let the Buick Encore be on top in its class of compact crossover SUVs. The model is going to be available in a front-wheel drive spec, while the all-wheel-drive version is optional. The 2013 Encore is powered by an Ecotec 1.4-liter turbocharged inline-four cylinder engine mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission, which is the only option available for the US-spec model. (The European buyers are to choose from the standard 6-speed manual transmission, 1.6-liter engine with a 5-speed manual transmission, or 1.7-liter CDTI (2WD) available with a 6-speed automatic.) The engine produces 140 hp and reaches 148 lb.-ft. between 1,850 and 4,900 rpm. Its great advantage is fuel efficiency achieved with the help of low-rolling resistance tires and electric power steering. The Encore gives 25 miles per gallon in the city, and 33 mpg on the highway in the front-wheel drive spec. Moreover, the Hydra-Matic 6T40 6-speed automatic transmission has neutral-gear disengagement for increased fuel savings. Hence, the 2013 Encore is the most fuel-efficient SUV available for sale in the USA and China.

The Buick Encore's exterior design is close to sporty, though refinement is present here as well. The Encore sticks to Buick standards, so its parts and accessories such as the waterfall grille, portholes, rims, and tri-shield emblem may be chromed as an option. The Buick SUV exterior is supplemented with blue translucent jewel-like projector-beam headlights. The Encore offers storage space of 18.8 cu. ft. liters with its rear seat in place and up to 48.4 cubic feet with the rear seats folded. Besides, it has a fold-flat front passenger seat. The Encore's storage area can be right called thoughtful and convenient. Sound absorbing materials and laminated glass make the interior extra comfortable, let alone premium leather seating and a steering wheel that can warm your hands in winter (heated steering wheel is optional). As a matter of fact, the 2013 Buick Encore will be available in base, Convenience, Leather and Premium trim levels. The additional options, such as dual automatic control, navigation, Bose stereo, automatic wipers, and IntelliLink infotainment system are offered as well. The Encore is no doubt safe. 10 airbags come standard, and available safety tech includes lane departure warning, front and rear park assist, and a rearview camera as well.

Because combination of beauty and agility is rare nowadays, the Buick Encore is unlikely to have many competitors. Taking into account all the exterior and interior accessories and parts missing in its predecessors, Buick designed the Encore for the most choosy customers. The choice is yours, but the all-new Encore will make the drive safe and comfortable due to the highest technological standards. Neither comments, nor guess should influence you. Only the test drive will put everything in its place.

A spoiler is intended to control the way the air streaming over the car is affecting the rear of the vehicle. Spoilers cause drag, and actually slow the car down or make it unstable, if not properly designed. A correctly designed spoiler can counteract the lifting forces that most cars experience when speeds get high, and keep the car on the road.

2014 Buick Encore
| Posted by | (Mckinney, TX)

The cargo liner arrived rolled up in a long slender box. 15 minutes in the hot Texas sun and it was ready for installation. The mat is very durable and a good thickness. I ordered the gray color and it is an almost exact match to my carpet. On my particular vehicle - the raised lip does not fit exactly at the back of the car (where the hatch lid closes) but nothing worth returning the mat for. If anything ever spills - I won't care! Great price for the quality and design of the mat.
