Buick Encore Production Raised by 50 Percent

The Buick Encore Takes the Scenic Route

The crossover segment is one of the fastest-rising in the country, and thanks to the Encore, Buick is right at the top of it.

The compact CUV sold 48,992 units in 2014 and that number isn’t showing any signs of going down—rather the opposite. When it came out in 2013, analysts had predicted about 18,500 U.S. sales of the Encore for that year, and 25,000 in 2015.

The Encore exceeded all expectations by a huge margin with just over 31,000 sales in 2013 and nearly 49,000 in 2014, up more than 50 percent. It’s already become our third-best-selling vehicle at Ewing Buick GMC, and could very well reach the top of the selling charts this year at the rate it’s going.

In fact, Buick Encore production will be upped by an additional 50 percent for the U.S. market, so it seems we’re not the only ones anticipating an encore of last year’s explosive performance!

Rumors of New GMC Off-Road SUV Continue

GMC May Offer Another SUV Other Than the Acadia

The rumors that GMC is considering an all-new off-roading SUV to rival the Jeep Wrangler are getting stronger day by day. Earlier this month, the Wall Street Journal backed up the speculation, saying this theoretical vehicle is definitely still on GMC’s radar.

The new GMC off-road SUV might be totally separate from other GMC lines, with an entire new model name, if it’s the car that GMC’s product chief mentioned in 2014, adding that the new creation might take some construction lessons from the Hummer.

Similar sources claim that GMC executives are actually chatting with some dealerships about the possibility of the new model, gaining some insight as to whether or not it would be successful with consumers. Surely, a bold, off-road SUV would add to GMC’s rugged image.

Little else is known about this possible project, though many are taking to the web to add their own thoughts to the matter. Would you be interested in a GMC off-road SUV? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
