We’re looking forward to having a bunch of new inventory at our Buick dealership in Maine coming soon. Over the next 12 months, Buick is planning on launching four new or significantly updated models, including the 2013 Buick Enclave and the all-new 2013 Buick Encore. In fact, by the end of 2013, the oldest Buick model will be the Buick Verano, which launched less than a year ago. And if the redesigned Buick Regal and Buick LaCrosse sedans follow in the footsteps of their crossover brethren, we know you’ll be impressed.
The 2013 Enclave will be arriving this fall with an updated grille and a restyled back end, plus a revised suspension and transmission that will provide an even smoother ride. Inside, the center control stack gets larger knobs that are easier to use, and a new Cocoa leather option carries on the luxurious feeling the Enclave has always given. Safety-wise, a new front-center airbag and new side blind-zone and rear cross-traffic alert systems will help prevent unseen crashes and protect in case of an accident. The updated Enclave should be rolling onto our lot this fall, so stay tuned!
Meanwhile, the brand-new Encore will serve up the same premium amenities in a compact crossover’s body. The standard active noise-suppression system monitors road noise and emits noise-cancelling frequencies through the Encore’s speakers, ensuring a vault-like ride. The five-passenger vehicle offers plenty of legroom in the back seat, while up front, a power driver’s seat and a leather-wrapped steering wheel offer the comfort you’ve come to expect from a Buick.
If you’re looking for a new luxurious crossover, try the Buick Enclave or the Buick Encore when it arrives this spring. And if you want a premium sedan, keep an eye out for the all-new LaCrosse and Regal – they’re worth a look.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recently released a list of safe-driving tips for summertime, covering everything from a pre-trip safety checklist to what you should have in your emergency roadside kit. At our Oxford, Maine Buick dealership, we agree that safety out on the road is important. That’s why we’re excited about the advanced active safety features in two upcoming 2013 Buick models: the Verano sedan and the versatile Encore crossover.
Unlike passive safety systems – like seat belts and airbags – that are designed to protect drivers and passengers after a crash has occurred, an active safety system is created to help prevent a crash in the first place. In addition to the 2013 Verano’s standard Rear Vision Camera, the new Buick luxury compact will come with available Side Blind Zone Alert and Rear Cross Traffic Alert, both of which rely on radar sensors in the corner of the rear bumper to help drivers avoid collisions when changing lanes or backing out of a driveway or parking spot.
The 2013 Buick Encore will offer an optional Forward Collision Alert, which uses a forward-looking camera to give drivers an audible warning when a run-in seems likely. The model will also have an available Lane Departure Alert to let drivers know when they’ve crossed a lane marker without using a turn signal. Both alert systems can be turned off or on by the driver with a push of a button.
If you’d like to see what other safety features the new Buick Verano and Buick Encore – or any model in the Buick lineup – have available, drop by our Oxford, ME Buick dealer. We’re available to answer any questions you may have or to take you on a test-drive.
