2013 Buick Encore Partial Reveal Proves Crossover Has Hood

By Keith Buglewicz | December 20, 2011
It is rapidly becoming a tradition among automakers. Rather than actually show off a vehicle for the first time at an auto show, it is instead slowly revealed through "teasers" over the course of a few days or weeks before the show. It "generates buzz," the automakers say, and the various news outlets—this one included—get sucked right in. And here we go again. Fine. We're shameless. Anyhow, along those lines, Buick is slowly unveiling its upcoming 2013 Buick Encore. In addition to a teaser shot of the headlight last week, Buick is unveiling one quarter of an apparently nice photo of the new compact crossover every week on its dedicated Encore Facebook app until its official reveal at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show. The first photo reveals a tree, a nicely manicured lawn, and a small lake...come to think of it, the whole scene could just be a golf course. It also shows a little bit of the Encore itself, proving once and for all that the new vehicle will have a hood and windshield.
As Buick says, be sure to check back each week for a "rare sneak peek" at the final vehicle before its official Detroit reveal. Hurry, as this "exclusive reveal" is available only to those select 750,000,000 people who are lucky enough to have a Facebook account. Source: Buick
